    Add this to your thought brother:
    US Military convoy enters North-east Syria on 21st January.

    Native customs regarding care for the land are followed here by Christian and pagan alike. There is no conflict.
    We also have specific as well as general sacred sites. But....Big, little...sacred is sacred.
    Let's turn all of Mecca into an open-pit mine, starting with the Kaaba. It's just a place and who knows what resources are available? Why should it be special?
    I'm thinking a lot of Muslims would not be down with that, but I'd like to see the debate.

    I'm confused, I was always taught that Adam was kicked out of Heaven to Earth, I thought only Jews and Christians say Eden was on Earth.

    @Shabbar_Abidi Thank you so much. This is exactly why I wrote that blog, to remind us that things do get better. May Allah bless you and your family.

    To express this in another way, if you don't have a lot of stuff to take care of you save both money and time and worry.

    One of the old Iranian poems about the tragedy of Karbala starts with this line:
    این شکار دام هر صیاد نیست
    عشقبازی کار هر شیاد نیست
    "this is not a prey for any random hunter;
    love is not the affair of charlatans"

    One piece of important evidence I omitted on purpose was the role of Abu Sufiyan after the demise of the Prophet.
    When everyone swore allegiance to Abu Bakr, Abu Sufiyan wanted the caliphate to remain among the children of Abd-manaf. Aba Sufiyan then told `Ali: “O aba al-Hasan, extend your hand that I may pledge allegiance.” But `Ali refused his offer so abu Sufiyan recited poetry depicting the pitiful situation of the two men which led `Ali to rebuke him: “By Allah you only seek to cause trouble and you’ve always wished harm to befall Islam. Leave us, we are not in need of your advice.” (Tabari, Ibn abi al-Hadid).
    What are the chances that Abu Sufiyan made the same offer to Abu Bakr and Umar and some how force them into starting a war with Imam Ali (as). As we can see, the usurping of Fadak and Ridda wars were meant to create civil war and extinguish Islam.
    It looks like Abu Sufiyan was rewarded by giving his sons the governorship of Syria. Is there any other justification?

    In Deuteronomy it says:
    כִּי תָצוּר אֶל עִיר יָמִים רַבִּים לְהִלָּחֵם עָלֶיהָ לְתָפְשָׂהּ לֹא תַשְׁחִית אֶת עֵצָהּ לִנְדֹּחַ עָלָיו גַּרְזֶן כִּי מִמֶּנּוּ תֹאכֵל וְאֹתוֹ לֹא תִכְרֹת כִּי הָאָדָם עֵץ הַשָּׂדֶה לָבֹא מִפָּנֶיךָ בַּמָּצוֹר
    "When you besiege a city for many days to wage war against it to capture it, you shall not destroy its trees by wielding an ax against them, for you may eat from them, but you shall not cut them down. Is the tree of the field a man, to go into the siege before you?" (Devarim 20:19)
    The sages note that האדם עץ השדה can literally translate as "the man is a tree of the field" (see notes from Rashi). Rabbis usually teach this verse on Tu B'Shevat, which is a "new year" for trees! Great blog!

    I've also noticed by browsing some of the old topics that there are many banned members with high post counts. I don't know what they did to get banned, but maybe limiting the ban to maybe 1 year so these people that were once active on SC aren't gone forever?
