This is what our dear Deb wrote

>Now you need to understand what is the significance of Temple Mount or "Haram-al-sharif" is to the Muslims.

Hello: It is called al-Haram al-sharif and you need to stick to urdu. See? you will never be an Arab and this is a blessing

1. Why does al-masjad al-aqsa look like a Byzantine Chruch? Any guesses?"

>My Answer : Mosques in Arabia have minarets , mosques in China look like Buddhist temples , Mosques in Europe or USA that are currently being built will take Gothic or anglo-Saxon shapes.

Really? Hello: this is the first monumant in the history of the religion of the Arabs and Arabia is not far away from Jerusalem so what would it look like a Chruch and not an ugly mosque? and as for the US the mosques here are almost all of them store front operations and they are ugly and populated by tablighees and other wannabe arabs and oh no women

>See Mosques can be built in any structure. After all the Prophet himself said that the whole world is a mosque.

This is pretty scary so where did he say that? In this in the bogus hadith or the bogus sira or the bogus al-maghazi?

>The Al-Aqsa might have taken the shape of a Byzantine structure. Because that was the most known and common style of acrhitecture at the time. It does not mean anything.

No back then sky was the limit so try again and why did Abd al-malik not build it in Mecca? could it be because Mecca is a late invention of your masters the Arabs?

And why would the first cutlic center in Islam be built in distant Jerusalem and not in miserable Mecca? Unless the Umayyads were really local Syrian Arabs and that islam really has nothing to do with Mecca or a Muhammad or even an Allah?

>My Answer : You need to understand what the word "Islam" means.

So what does it mean?

> It means submission.

Oh really? the word submission in Arabic means istislam and not islam so is your religion called istislam, but again you do not know any Arabic

>According to Prophet Mohammad even Jesus and Moses were Muslims

Oh yeah? says who? But wait the Qur'an also says that Jesus must be god so do you believe that too? and are we all born Muslims? If so then I'm a proud kaffir

>since they submitted their own will to that before of Allah. It really does not matter whether the Umayyads were Syrian Arabs or Christians or not.

Hello: The Umayyads were Syrian Christian Arabs

So what does the word Jew really mean?

>My Answer : For this particular question ask Mr. Tovey in this same forum. He can enlighten you.

No you tell me

Enlighten ya ayuha la-falyasoof al-kabeer!

>My Answer : Thanks for calling me a philosopher. I would love to keep to your standards.

So what does the word Jewish mean?

"How come your Allah is silent about al-Hind and about Hinduism and Buddhsim? Could it be because he is an Arab that does not know anything beyond Arabia?"

>My Answer : Allah does not need to tell everything to everyone.

Hello: let me help you your Allah is an Arab who does not know anything beyond Arabia and India ain't Arabia

>Any intelligent person should be able to understand. Anyways Yahwah in OT or Jesus in NT also did not talk about Hundus and Buddhists.

Well but Allah is the big Bubba right? then how come he did not know about your own ancestors any guesses?

>Does it mean that Yahwah is a Hebrew who did not know anything about Hindus and Buddhists ?

So you are saying if the Allah of the jews and the allah of the Christians are silent about your ancestors then what is wrong with Allah being ignorant about the fact that there were Hidnus and Buddhsits? but your Allah is the big bubba right? then he is ignorant ?

"Now Muslims in Egypt have no clue that they are really Muslim Copts and do you know why? Because islam get you to hate your past and the only proud people in Egypt today are the Copts or the Christians of Egypt as they love their past and do not want to have any link with the Arabs or with arabia or Arabian imperialism"

>My Answer : This is a racist anti-semitic comment agaisnt Arabs.

Hello: Egyptians are not Arabs and anti-semtism is when an Arabian deity calls his own creation khanazeer wa quruud

>Remember it was the Arabs who have been at the forfront of modern Egyptian nationalism. Have you ever heard some one called Gamal Abdel Nassr ?

ROTFL Paki Arabic it is Gamal 3Abd al-Nasser?

>Can you name any coptic Egyptian who has done more for Egyptian people or Egyptian nation ?

Let me see living or dead? which would you like?but I can think of two great living Egyptian Copts and they are Dr. Madgy Ya3qoob and Pope Shenouda do you need more names?

>And do not forget that copts since the time of Caliph Omar have been given the right to worship freely and keep their customs in Egypt. What more do these copts want ?

Hello: there was no Omar al-farooq

>And as per the word "Hindustan" and "Hindu" aree concerned you need to understand the context of the debate. That guy Muslimkush was trying to prove that Muslims are alien to India. So I refuted him on that account. I wanted to tell him that Muslims have been in India for last millenium. It does not matter how they converted the Hindus.

Your Hindu ancestors were brutalized by Islam and you say it is not important that they were brutalized? shame on you

>The good thing is that they have done many great things in India like uniting the country , destroying the caste system and building on great monuments like Taj Mahal.

Hello: there is also caste system among Muslims that reside in India or did you forget?

>I believe that the reason behind conversion to Islam was that many low caste Hindus voluntarily converted to Islam to escape the harsh caste system.

No they were brutalized and 90M of them killed by Muslims

>I hope people like you and Muslimkush will appreciate that.

Appreciate what? that you are no more than a wannabe Arab? he should not
