Good try

Reader comment on item: Destroying Sculptures of Muhammad
in response to reader comment: Mullah Ahmad

Submitted by Imam Ahmed Syeed Ali Muhammed (United States), Mar 29, 2008 at 11:52

I'm not Arab, I'm African American, and My Arabic isn't fluent. However I still have to disagree with you on the fact that Islam is only for the Arabs. If you feel this is true, then quote a verse from the Qur'an that says this.

I've been an Imam for only 3 years, I highly doubt that is long enough to attain the title Shayk. For some cancers a person cannot control getting them, others like lung cancer, etc you can avoid contracting by eating healthy, and avoiding unhealthy habits. We aren't talking about Men who are depressed here, we are talking about mislead young men who are taught that Blowing themselves up for God is going to grant them paradise!

Anyway, Everyone has an opinion about Islam, It is as the Holy Qur'an says; 'Let those who believe, believe, and those who disbelieve, disbelieve..... What is it with the 3 in 'al- salaamu 3alaikum'???
