Taj and the simplicity of the islamic mind
Submitted by Richard Lion heart (United States), Apr 9, 2006 at 13:58I have debated many muslims in this forum. I came to realize how carnal and simplistic the islamic way of thinking is. what also amuzes me is how muslims like to attack a question or comment instead of challenging it with facts, in other words typical muslim AD Hominen.
I don't believe there should be such a word as islamophobia. It's like saying naziphobia. I like to make such points in my comments, after all I never like to miss a chance to educate an ignorant person. And you fit that category quite nicely.
I will not waste time naming hadith.I'm only interested in their content.The hadith are supposedly a series of sayings of Muhammad accumulated during the centuries after his death. Some muslims swear by them as being the authentic words of Muhammad, some muslims think they are not reliable therefore discard them all together(sufi).
So which one of these categories do you fall in? Because it is obvious you don't believe in your own hadith. Let's take this one for example:
Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3310:
'A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported: Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) married me when I was six years old, and I was admitted to his house when I was nine years old.
Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64
that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).
I'm sure you will deny them, in which case your confusion will be confirmed. And like I you, you can't cherry pick what you like from the hadith. That man whom you venerate and follow was a pedophile and a murderer.
On the subject of Jesus your lack of understanding and demagogic statements reach a new hieght. Jesus was a pacifist. Just because you did not understand what He said does not make it otherwise. But don't worry I will educate you on how to read allegory.
Jesus used allegory when He preached the Gospel. When He said "i come not to bring peace, but a sword". What sword do you think his talking about? The sword of the Gospel. That sword tore through the heart of those who crucified. That sword changed our society. That's the sword Martin Luther King used in his struggle for racial equality and justice. The Gospel of Love and forgiveness and justice is a menacing sword to those who prefer the status quo of injustice and totalitarianism. Like we see in the islamic world today, that's why Christians are persecuted.
