  3. Sallam, You know its actually pretty funny, one would think considering everything that is going on in the world, in general, and more specifically in the muslim world AT LEAST the shia's would have the sense to unity and not let petty difference cause strife, confusion, or division. Don't get me wrong it is important to discuss these issues especially if they BOTHER certain members of this online shia community, but why does it have to be discussed in a manner which is going to obviously offend somebody? I am syed, and have never, in my entire life, seen or heard of another syed expressing superiority. I go to a mosque which is ~50% syed and ~50% non-syed (ummati...I guess) and neither side expects any special treatment from the other, which is why I cannot relate, and also why I feel this topic is little more than completely unnecessary. -muslimah-
  4. Sallam, Its true, when it comes to the media certain words/comments are reserved for certain groups of people. Have you guys ever noticed that a Caucasian who targets innocent civilians will NEVER be called a TERRORIST. Another thing I cant help but mention is that muslims are not just the only ones the media does this to. I listen to 1010 on my way to school, and whenever a crime is committed by a African American man the reporter is sure to mention a description. The other day I was listening to the same station and I forget the exact nature of the crime but the description was omitted even thought the reporter stated the name of the criminal, I just laughed to myself thinking " The dudes probably white!" :!!!: -Muslimah-
  5. Sallam, I cannot believe you just said that! Are the Bha'is not people? Islam teaches to respect people of other faiths, nowhere does it say to "exterminate" them. Unfortunately human beings all to often concentrate on the differences between themselves and others, and not the similarities. One of my best friends is Bha'i and it is really fascinating how many beliefs we have in common. -Muslimah-
  6. You took the words right out of my mouth... -Muslimah-
  7. Sallam, Reading your question, I am reminded of a Sikh here in NYC who had filled a law suite against the NYPD because they had required him to remove his turban. I think he won the case and was able to obtain a position as an officer as well. Personally I believe if we have been blessed with the opportunity of living in the west, and are granted certain freedoms, we should fight for our rights. Also this may seem kind of silly but I think there are hairnets that one can wear around their beard too. Wouldn't that be a sight to see :). -Muslimah-
  8. Sallam, I agree with everything all of you have said as of yet. I just thought that I should share some info that some of you may not be aware of. Recently I read an article in which it was stated that there were two french journalists that were kidnapped in Iraq. The kidnappers demanded that the French government revoke its ban placed on the "head scarf". In response many of the Muslim clergy in France have accepted the French ban because they feel that disputing the ban any further would make it seem as if the muslim's in France were supporting the kidnapping. Just thought I should share a tid-bit of related info. -Muslimah-
  9. Sallam, I don't know how many of you have been keeping up with the RNC taking place in NY, but for those of you who have I would like to ask a few questions. Last night one of the retired generals who had led the American forces into Iraq was speaking on the presidents behalf. Afterwards he was invited to a PBS table for some further elaboration and commentary. He made a comment about Kerry's behavior upon returning from the war in Vietnam. Specifically referring to the testimony given by the present day Senator. This testimony is viewed negatively in the eyes of many veterans, because they feel that it didn't help the morale of the soldier who were still in Vietnam. I cannot help but draw a parallel between what happened and what recently unfolded at the Abu Gharaib prison. Hypothetically speaking if a soldier who had witnessed what was going on in the prison was to come back and testify to congress what would be the reaction then? Would not this person who had the decency to tell this "great" nation "Hey I think what we're doing here is wrong!" only give the American government a heads up? Are there not investigations taking place right this very moment to determine who is at fault and responsible for the "torture" of the Iraqi prisoners. Would not such testimony only help the American government get to the bottom of the scandal? Keeping all of this in mind I see nothing wrong with Sen. Kerry's going to congress and telling them exactly what he saw in the line of combat. It was his patriotic duty to set the nation straight and that's exactly what he did. -Muslimah-
  10. Sallam, I think it is important to step back and analyze why people such as the cheznya rebels are doing what they are doing. This analysis can also be used to look at the Palestininan issue and the Kashmir issue as well. People dont just wake up one morning and decide to blow themseleves up or take school children hostage. It takes years of hopelessness, oppression and frustration. This is not a justification for what is going on in the world, but I feel nothing is going to be solved until people stop reacting to situations with force, step back... think why something is happening and then try and help the situation. I would love to hear any thoughts you all may have on this subject. -Muslimah-
  11. Sallam, Please correct me if I am wrong, but I believe the Prophet (saw) has said to love your land. That can be interpreted a number of different ways. What I believe "land" to mean here is the land upon which you live, not neccesarily the entire country you live in(very subtle diff.). And what is meant by "love" is to respect, and value it. If one were to interpret "land" as the country in which one lives then i think we are walking in dangerous territory only because this can inspire nationalism. Everything in moderation is good, even alittle nationalism, but when it comes to this poll I think it boils down to : Which is more important religion or nationality? sallamz, Muslimah
  12. I could not have said it better myself. Frankly I am getting sick and tired of hearing that muslims did not condemn the terrorist acts, when time and time again we have. The media needs to open its eyes and look alittle more closely to the innumerable events that the muslim communities across this nation have sponsored post 9/11 to state just what it accuses us of not stating.
