    Are you sure about that? Why are these criminals/terrorists always linked with the same Islamic sect or denomination then? There is some type of deviant theology that is driving them to do this.
     
    I agree. They have little to nothing to do with the mainstream Islamic sects. But there are many people in the West who are wondering why other Muslims from the various sects not being more forceful in their condemnation of these deviant jihadists.

    You have to admit that even though this is not part of mainstream Islam there is a segment within the Islamic religion that advocates violent jihad and murdering of innocent non-Muslims. You never hear about Twelvers, Zayidis, Sufis, Ibadis, Quranists, and mainstream Sunnis committing these atrocities. It's always some group linked with radical Wahhabis, Salafis, or Daesh. I think mainstream Muslims today do need to recognize that within their overall religion that there is a small but very toxic element inside. 
     
    Of course this is true with any religion: Jewish, Christian, Hindu, etc.

    So some of you still consider the Wahhabis/Salafis/Daesh as still genuine Muslims? Smh. 

    Anyone who kills innocent civilians are not followers of God/Allah. They are followers of Satan. Satan is a murderer of innocents from the beginning.

    Japanese language belongs in the Altaic language group. The invaders of Japan came from Siberia (like the Hazaras) but mixed with the native Jomons. Yakuts speak a Turkic language and are mongoloid. This is common knowledge. How the Hazaras became Indo-European speakers (Persian) is another story. Just like many English people are related to Basque but speak an Indo-European language (English).

    ChristianVisitor reacted to Qa'im in Importance Of Physical Attraction In Marriage   
    (bismillah)
    The issue of physical attraction has obviously been exacerbated by modern media: (1) Picture-perfect celebrities, who all have personal trainers, hours of makeup, performance-enhancing drugs, lights and sets made to enhance their looks, (2) The Western tendency to outwardly display one's beauty, as opposed to the Semitic tendency to covet it, hide it, and be protective of it. This leads to many hours a week spent on one's looks, and then the display of one's looks at the mall, grocery store, school, workplace, etc. (3) Hardcore pornography, which desensitizes human attraction to a collection of shapes, some of which are completely artificial, and others are rare, uncommon, and require a lot of time and effort to attain. Not to get too graphic, but when men have easy access to shined-up, polished, clean-shaven, fit, made-up, silicone-filled women, it's no surprise that sexually-repressed Muslim men who spend their days online look for a pornstar wife. (4) The general material #yolo outlook in capitalist culture, which glorifies one's looks and ignores the things that are needed for longevity in a relationship, as well as ignoring the akhira.
    With that said, physical attraction is still human. It has been abused by the factors above, but it is still based on something universal that we all look for in our relationships. There are many Muslims who are satisfied with their partner's deen and kindness, and convince themselves that physical attraction is not needed, or that it will develop in the relationship. Or, they expect their partner to change during the marriage. However, human nature kicks in, and they find themselves ignoring their partner, or making problems out of small issues, when the root cause is a lack of attraction.
    So while the importance of physical attraction has been exaggerated in recent times, the shari`a still stipulates a lot of recommendations related to one's looks. Remember that Islam is not purely a spiritualistic religion - it deals with our basic earthly side as well. Islam makes the connection between healthiness and attractiveness, with thousands of prophetic and Imamic dietary recommendations (see Tubb an-Nabawi or Wasa'il ash-Shi`a). The Prophet has also encouraged men to inquire about the looks of those they propose to - to give her a prolonged look, to see her hair, to see her outside of her loose outerwear. Likewise, the Prophet recommended that men shorten their beards, dye their grey hair, cut their hair short, and to work during the day and pray for part of the night. The Prophet also advised that we take part in physical sports (archery, horseback riding, wrestling, racing). Furthermore, fasting is recommended, which eliminates toxins, and cuts out unnecessary foods. Fatness is makrooh and seen as a defect in Islam, while in some pre-modern cultures it was seen as a desirable trait. Allah hates when we fill our stomachs, or when we eat when we're not hungry. In Islamic sexual ethics, great emphasis is put on pleasing the woman (application of scents and good breath, foreplay, etc.), while in Western sexual ethics, pleasing the male is the focus. I can go on and on, but almost anyone who follows the sunna will get physical results.
    In the end, you want a healthy spouse. No one wants to marry a fat guy/girl, yet our communities have a huge obesity and overweight problem. You'll notice in hadith al-mi`raj that the issue of food and wasteful eating comes up over and over again. Moreover, we all need to work on lowering our standards. Cutting TV and porn out of your life completely would be a very good step. You'll begin seeing and appreciating beauty in simpler things in a person. Then, love what Allah loves, and hate what Allah hates, and you'll find yourself looking for religiosity and dropping some of those irrational things that we want in a wife or husband. If you're already married, then don't take the regular sex as a sign that you don't need to maintain or improve your looks. Always seek to improve your relationship, both physically and spiritually, and grow to please one another.

    ChristianVisitor got a reaction from shreek in Paul Of Tarsus In Islamic Text ?   
    I know some Christians believe that Paul was an impostor and false apostle. The reason why they say this is because they believe Paul taught an antinomian doctrine where faith in Jesus Christ alone was enough for salvation, while Jesus and his disciples taught that moral renewal, law-keeping, and faithful obedience to God were necessary for one to have a place in the Kingdom. I disagree with this interpretation but I'm just sharing what some Christians believe about Paul.

    I remember when 9/11 happened and tuned in on the television I saw crowd of Shia Muslims in Tehran holding a vigil and grieving that so many innocent civilians were killed in the attacks. On the other hand, I saw a whole bunch of Palestinians cheering on the streets after they heard in the news that the USA was attacked. Go figure.

    There are always sectarian battles between Shias and Sunnis but you rarely ever hear about Shias and Christians massacring each other. Is this because Shias generally get along better with Christians than Sunnis?
