  1. Salaam Alaikum Sister. 

    Eid Mubarak to you and family. 

  2. Salam Haji 2003, My only advice to the church leaders in Jerusalem is to heed Jesus Christ's commands to love neighbors as oneself and to love enemies. When asked who is one's neighbor, Jesus gave the Good Samaritan parable. Remember, he was talking to his fellow Jewish people about who their neighbors are, and at that time, Samaria was a neighboring nation to the Jewish people in Judea/Israel. The Jewish people did not associate with the Samaritans at that time, yet in Jesus' parable, the Samaritan took care of a beaten man when even a priest and a Levite would not help him: "
  3. May you have a very blessed Ramadan!!! Peace and God bless you!!!
  4. Salam Ashvazdanghe, Thanks for explaining Shia beliefs. According to Christian beliefs, Jesus Christ has many titles, including "Son of God" and "Son of Man" and "Son of David." I believe Jesus Christ is all his titles. Personally, I don't believe in the concept of a Shia Mahdi, though I understand and respect the right of Shia Muslims to believe so. Peace and God bless you.
  5. Salam Abu Hadi, Aye. I agree completely about that. Thanks so much for explaining the history/context of it! Ok, so basically the Christian Arabs in Arabia decided to pay a religious tax cause they backed out of a Mubahila? Aye, understood, and this has to do with whether that government is Sunni or Shia, cause both believe in Muhammad's leadership. Ahh, that makes sense. However, service in the military actually makes a person feel more a part of one's country. (My Grandfather, a Christian who laughs at the idea of pacifism) was in the Navy and due
  6. Salam Gaius l. Caesar, The reason the Copts were in larger numbers (their numbers are declining) is because Egypt is their country, until the Muslim Arabs invaded it and made Egypt a Muslim theocracy. Again, that's a problem with theocracies. When Europe was ruled by Christian theocracies, the same thing happened to people of not of the dominant belief. I think in theory is different than in practice. Out of curiosity, does Iran force jizya on the Christians and Jews there? I have an Iranian friend who is a secret Christian. She lives in the USA but when she visits he
  7. Salam Haji 2003, According to Jesus Christ, the leader of Christians, it is God's plan for "those who are in Judea" to "flee to the mountains" which is interesting: Jesus talks about the end times on the Mount of Olives after leaving the Temple (that was destroyed by the pagan Romans) in Jerusalem around 2,000 years ago: "So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’[a] spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand— 16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let no one on the housetop go down to take anyth
  8. Salam Gaius l. Caesar, I didn't assume. I was asking in order to learn. After all, Jizya is in the Qur'an and both Sunnis and Shias agree to the concept. This is horrible. :( This is a danger of a theocracy. Many theocracies try to stifle other religions, even different groups in the same religion. It's one of the problems with a theocracy. The Coptic Church sadly suffers persecution in Egypt even though it's one of the official religions. I am sorry you thought I was lecturing. My questions are to learn what people think. Thank you for answering my questions.
  9. Wasalaam Abu Nur :) Thanks for using the Muslim greeting. I like it. :) Personally, I cannot in good conscience hate any group of people because of Jesus Christ's commands to love enemies. While it is human nature to hate people who hurt you, Jesus' command supersedes human nature. Humans can repent of evil, since God allows that and even encourages people to repent of wickedness. I think that's one reason why Jesus commanded his followers to love enemies, because enemies can repent of their sins and become brothers or at least no longer enemies. Definitely I agree
  10. Salam Ibn Maymun, Regardless of whoever/whatever policy, God's will is done, no matter what. He uses whoever and whatever to accomplish His purpose. After all, God used a sweet donkey to warn Balaam not to curse Israel (Numbers 22) and used a sea creature to swallow Jonah when he refused to warn the people of Nineveh to repent. God definitely uses both the USA and Israel, as well as other nations, to fulfill prophecies. As King Jehoshaphat prayed in Jerusalem ? years ago: "and he said: 'O LORD, the God of our fathers, art not Thou alone God in heaven? and art not Thou
  11. Shalom Ibn Maymun, Zechariah is indeed one of the most fascinating books in the Tanakh. One of my favorite passages is this one: "Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion; for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD. And many nations shall join themselves to the LORD in that day, and shall be My people, and I will dwell in the midst of thee'; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto thee. And the LORD shall inherit Judah as His portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again. Be silent, all flesh, before the LO
  12. Salam Abu Nur, I think that's one reason why Jesus Christ commanded his followers to love neighbors as oneself (and gave the parable of the Good Samaritan) and to love enemies. Hating other people gives way to injustice and wickedness, but loving people strives for the good of all people. Since God is the Creator of all people, He wants the good of all people. As God says when rebuking the people of Israel for her sins: "Say unto them: As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live; turn ye, turn
  13. Salam Jaffar_is_in_use, I got married to my husband in September 2011 because I love him!!! Before meeting him, I had been praying, asking God to bring me together with a wonderful man who loves God and who will love me with God's love. And, God answered my prayers!!! My husband is my best friend and we do enjoy life together. While sadly I cannot have kids, maybe someday He will allow me to, and I will call the baby Hannah if a girl or Isaac if a boy. God closed the wombs of Sarah (Genesis 18) and Rachel (Genesis 30) for a time but then gave Sarah Isaac and gave Rachel Joseph and Be
  14. Salam Gaius l. Caesar, It is thanks to the focus on religion freedom (which does not force a jizya or religion tax on Muslims) that allow both Shia and Sunni Muslims (as well as the other groups of Muslims) to freely enjoy religious freedom here in the USA - without harming each other or Non-Muslims, of course. That is an important legal requirement for any religious group however, including Christians, to do no harm. Good point. Immorality is indeed everywhere, including in Muslim-dominated countries, both Shia and Sunni. I disagree with that because many Iranians who imm
  15. Salam Waseem162, Women should not be forced to wear hijab. It should be their choice. Men can learn how to control their brains and lusts. There are many good men, including some wonderful Muslim men I know, who understand the importance of controlling their brains in order not to lust after women, no matter what women are/aren't wearing. They, like Job, have made a covenant with themselves to not lust after women who are not married to them: “I made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a young woman. For what is our lot from God above, our heritage from
