  1. So what's comedy all about? Its about making fun of something. We laugh at things to make our selves feel superior to others. That's why we laugh when some one tips over or does a funny face. Of course some people will be offended at some comedy but that doesn't stop the comedian. Neither should it stop the protesters but that's humor for you. Each person has a sense of humor, will you ban one type of humor since you and some others feel offended by it?
  2. While we say "they will all burn in hell" directly or indirectly. To non-believers its just wearing something that they don't see as sacred. Yes its offensive but I think they find it offensive when we call them heathen and tell them that no matter how nice, kind, and smart they are they're still going to rot in hell for an eternity.
  3. You seem pretty ignorant in this post. Didn't all the oppressed people throughout the history of humanity know that if they want to complain, their dictator, totalitarian regime or monarch will hurt, torture or kill them? They all knew that pretty well but they still fought back many times in many different countries in many different timelines from history. They believe that its their right to do it since they feel that Islam is opressive and wish to present it like this. Granted that Muslims will feel offended but that's what caricatures are meant for. The same goes if some spokesp
  4. They all do it as a way to express themselves. It can be viewed not only for religious leaders but for political ones or even for people in the entertainment industry. They present it in this way to show what they think about this certain person since of the issues he or she is causing and they wish to address it. As for the quote, which "great" politician, also how about that nose is of some shady politician, dictator, or corrupt religious figure head that is doing something bad and hurting people? Isn't it best to then use caricatures to address the issue? Its only one of the man
  5. Actually there are many that speak against Israel's actions. They get criticism but so does everything else. A sect. of Judaism the ultra orthodox Jews even disagree with the state of Israel. Including others like Bernie Sanders himself and Cristino Ronaldo. Those cartoonists insult every religion and political stand. That's what a caricature is about, mocking since there is a problem with it. They believe in freedom of speech for everyone since there are things that are just plain wrong and things that aren't.
  6. They know the risks and that's why their doing it. So that they can show the truth in their perspective to the local populace, then to the national and then to the international so that they can do something about it and then solve the issue. They do the same thing for Jesus, Buddha, Moses but none of the other religions bats an eye or if they complain they do it peacefully. While we have to put up signs where they'll burn in hell, want their blood, and then some terrorist group goes and kills them. That is not what Islam should stand for but so many of them are willing to do it in
  7. The reason is to live the rest of your life with a person who is fifty years old but acts like a ten year old toddler and you have to deal with him everyday with the shock you get from others and the issue of their height, weight, and strength over you if you are there parent and your like 70 something? I know a family who has this same issue with another one of their sons. He is now 34 but acts like he's 3 years old. She even needs to change his diaper for him and where I'm in there's no medical instituion to help these type of people. If there was it would be too expensive. My mom told
  8. Some of these examples are not beneficial in a society. One shouldn't just spend their days just praying. You exist in this world, you are part of a community that works everyday to survive, and so should you. For others its the fault of others as to why they're unemployed. But for my uncle and cousin its in their cortex. What can they do to solve this issue if not after thirty years where they find a cure and it would cost too much to fix. Their family true but it doesn't add up to the sorrow that I and my extended family has to face with them.
  9. But at the end you just work on yourself to improve yourself right? So if you add God into the equation does it make any diffrence? I know this is a bit too extreme but hear me out. You can improve on yourself with your own will and work hard to achieve what you need or you can add the fact that God is watching over you while you do it. So it means that God isn't really necessary when it comes to our will. At the end if you want to achieve something you have to work on yourself, not ask God to do it for you. I have reached to the point that if I want something done then I will
  10. Asalamu Ailakum, There has something that has been bothering me for quite some time about Muslims in general. Which is about all the stories where when some Western cartoonist decided that they want to draw a caricature to make fun of the prophet Muhammad (pbh) and then Muslims all around the world go insane over it. To the point where they want to kill this person and some times hold signs where they want his or her blood. Its just like with Charlie Hebdo who got shot and killed along with six other cartoonists for the cartoons they made of the prophet Muhammad (pbh). Why do
  11. They tried to do simple things but my uncle got tired after some time and for my cousin I'm not sure since I don't want to ask her mom, my aunt, about this but I guess she has the same issue as well.
  12. So your saying that we can do it without the need for religion to assist us. Just us humans?
  13. Asalamu Alaikum, Now I have these two family members of mine. One is my uncle and the other is my cousin. Yet the thing about them both is that they have a mental illness. I'm not sure what its called but the main issue, lets start with my uncle, is that he has issues when it comes to talking or working. That means that he can't really do much in life. Now he just lives at my grandmother's house, he got a job once but it just didn't work out. He'll most likely not get married and I heavily doubt that will change and he just keeps doing the same routine over and over. Eat, sleep, re
  14. Asalamu alaikum, I have been trying to deal with this issue for quite some time now. I am a devouted shia muslim. I do my prayers, fasting, don't drink, gamble, fornicate, or any of those things. But what I do wonder is that why is homosexuality a bad thing? I read into it a lot and hear so many of their stories on how they have to struggle to live their lives. Now we can say that perhaps they weren't born like this since biologically homosexuality is useless and that they chose this path instead. But it doesn't seem to be that way when I read about it, and getting to learn m
  15. The pork and swine industry has been continually plagued, and continues to be so to this day, by a wide variety of hazardous infections and diseases, including: The PRRS virus primarily attacks the pig's immune system, leaving its body open to a host of infections, particularly in the lungs. Initial research revealed that the virus was transmitted via semen, saliva and blood, leaving pigs herded closely together and transported in close quarters by trucks more susceptible to infection. However, according to research presented at the 2007 International PRRS Symposium, the disease is
  16. But we also have to try and learn as to why we should believe. We shouldn't blindly follow our religion. We should analyze what is right and what is wrong and make that wrong a right. We need to know as human beings when we should change or not.
  17. But if it does bring 74 different types of illnesses then why hasn't anyone died, or at least reported something about this?
  18. Asalamu Alaikum, Yes Prophet Muhamad (s.a.w.) was illiterate. He was raised with tribal arabs and grew up to be a trader with no knowledge of how to read or write whatsoever. The amazing novel written by a agnostic Jewish woman called "The first Muslim" can tell you alot about Prophet Muhamad (s.a.w.) his background, his relations, and how he dealt with pagans etc. So for the most part again, yes he couldn't read or write. The verses were sent to him by Gabriel the angle in the cave were he first met him, and goes back to tell it to his people the verses orally.
  19. Asalamu Alaikum, I have always been told that pigs, carnivores, and insects are things that we, as Muslims, are forbidden to eat yet when my biology professor told me that pork was only banned during the rise of Christianity and Islam since it wasn't simply cooked well enough. Today you can eat pork just fine as do millions of people. When I told my mother about this she believed me but she told me that the other reason as to why we don't eat pork, carnivores or insects is since we would get the characteristics of those creatures when we eat them. Such as a pig, who doesn't mind if its c
  20. *Getting force chocked by Darth Vader* "I feel your lack of being a nice person is... disturbing."
  21. I'm not that desperate I'm just wondering if its possible at my age since seven years is a long time!
  22. Thanks for the advice!!! Yet when we were about to do the duel an Israeli jet came by and bombed us all. They were looking for any ISIS members in the area and saw us as the closest thing to them. You're probably wondering how I'm able to talk to you like this well it seems that when the explosion came I was still alive but naked. Thanks to you I now know I'm Super Man and will fight for justice!!! Sure my crush died and everyone else I loved but hey... I'm SUPERMAN!!!
  23. Asalamu Aalaikum, I hope as many Muslim women help spread this thread. Now I'm not going to ask about how to gain self confidence or the courage to ask a girl out or all the things a desperate guy needs to have to be able to find his one true love of his life. I already have those traits. I'm talking about asking conservative Muslim girls on dates since I'm 18. Now I know that I should perhaps wait until I'm 25 and get married. But that's seven years away. Do I really need to wait that much just to get a simple Muslim girlfriend were we can go on dates and just talk? I want to have
