I did some roadtripping there and in Andalucia I visited the biggest mosque in Europe "Mezquita cathedral de Cordoba". It's a mosque and church at the same time! Super cool interfaith place! I highly recommend it. 

Love it hahah, didn't know you've been there. It's a beautiful place yet sadly they don't allow us to pray in there. Some tourists even got in jail for trying to do so. I really hope the Church reconsiders allowing people to pray the islamic way, as many associations have been asking for a long time to make it an interfaith temple.

I visited some Armenian christian chapels in north-west Iran earlier this year and the guy who drove me told me that he is both Muslim and Christian. Does Islam allow this?  He blessed himself and said some prayers with his hands together in the usual christian way. He seemed to have reconciled any incompatibilities to his own satisfaction anyway. His biggest concern was the lack of nightclubs, whiskey and dancing which he knew were all readily available across the various nearby borders.

Islam is supposed to be the next step in the abrahamic message, though what we understand by both religions is incompatible in some cases (for instance, that Jesus/Isa died in the cross, which is a belief that doesn't exist in Islam altogether). Last time I went to a cathedral I saw many muslim people in it, though. There are indeed more things in common than differences, so his case isn't really weird, if he shares a sentiment for both faiths, why wouldn't he reconcile them within himself.

As for the rest, I guess these are just vices, they don't need to be reconciled with one's faith hahah. Well, I don't know him so can't really say, just guessing.

In what way lol?

Easy.

Just as there are things to say or words to use that will provoke boys but not girls; inversely, there are things that will not bother boys but will irk, provoke or outrage a girl.

Keeping notes, then when you get marred ( :cry: ) you know which words will work and what order to use them and wear them down.

There were several members here who like writing poems. What do you guys write poems about? 

Personally, I write about intense things that happen in my life. I like to write rhymes. 

Today, a friend and I attended a poetry slam contest and I noted that almost exclusively all participants wrote about difficult things they have gone through. So do you guys also write about such things or do you perhaps write about Ahlul Bayt and other things as well?

:keeporder:"lnvestigate notme.  She's detectively insightful."

I googled the names of the actors you mentioned. Knowing things is way too easy nowadays. 

I used to be able to impress people with my memory, but now they don't even ask me, they just look on the internet.

You should develop a more "gangster mentality".

Tell her you want a "piece of the action" if she wins. Like a piece of candy or a slice of cake. She should show a 'little respect' to her older sister.

And "no", l do not watch reruns of The Godfather.

Am I not gangster enough already, brother hasanhh? Be careful what you wish for :D   :hahaha:

And I got as much as I wanted to be honest. 

And she was my older sis actually :)

I don't believe I have watched the Godfather or maybe I just didn't understand it or fell asleep because it's not my type of movie. 

My favourite movies are comedies.

Their are verses within the bible prohibiting drinking alcohol, it goes really deep on that subject. 

Jesus himself turned the water into wine at a wedding and not only that but it was top notch wine which everyone enjoyed greatly. Also there was wine at the last supper. Whatever else the bible might say it seems Christ himself had no major issues with the bottle.

According to some Christians pastors the term “wine” has two meanings one is literally wine and the other is grape juice but it was also called wine, there’s also a verse within bible that proves that the term “wine” has two meanings in the bible i Read an article three days ago on prohibition of wine and beer (strong drink).

This wine and Christianity talk is going off topic. 

Definitely drunkenness is prohibited in the Bible. Various Christian sects have different traditions regarding use of alcohol in general. 

Unless your hobbies include Christian traditions regarding wine, please return to the topic. Thanks.
