Chaotic Muslem reacted to Shabbar_Abidi in A Guide to Sunni Trends
I know many Muslims and families in the west, here in Canada that are not very religious. They barely care about Islam and are engulfed in the western world, yet still identify is Muslims (though they like to keep that a secret most of the time). They know that the quran is good to read, they know about hajj (but really count care less about actually doing it), they don't pray, they know about Ramadhan and like to celebrate eid. They have memorized many of the popular hadith (like the one about quran and Sunna, the one about backbiting,) and don't really care about learning more. Lastly they know the stories of the prophets and know which religion sprouted from each. And that's about it when it comes to religion.
What would this category be? The wont be liberal reformists, they don't care enough about what they call "religion" to want to reform anything. All thoughts are appreciated.

If scientist arguments against the Creator are that there is proof that the universe is accelerating, yet the Creator mentions this clearly enough in the Quran, should we put so much trust in their findings?
[Quran 51.47] And the heaven, We built it with craftsmanship and We are still expanding.

So she speaks Arabic, English and French already? She must have a high IQ.
I can't afford italki, however I do have one comprehensive Arabic textbook here.
The arabic tutor set has four volumes, so whatever level she is at you lick, and there are also some other resources there too.

So the hadith you mentioned would be more accurately translated as having the Prophet (saws) say "Marry the blind woman, for in her is faith"?
And am I correct in assuming that the insult implies that the person being insulted might be illegitimate?

This is from the NASA website:
"Reversals are the rule, not the exception. Earth has settled in the last 20 million years into a pattern of a pole reversal about every 200,000 to 300,000 years, although it has been more than twice that long since the last reversal.''
So i would say based on the pattern of reversals over the last 20 million years, we are overdue a reversal.

how would you categorize Farhan Maliki?
I seem to agree way too much with this guy, its scary. We have the same thought process. We can't even call ourselves Sunni anymore or anything since everyone has this habit of bucketing things. No one is allowed to be just "Muslim" anymore.
