>> Ramadan fasting and the arctic! So what would Muslims have done fore ramadan fasting in the arctic back in 632 CE when Muhammad the Arabian warlord and caravan raider died! I'm not talking about now I'm talikng about back in 632CE. <<


I suppose that someone would have had to come up with a method to count time without having to rely on sundials.

>> Now I have a question for you: How come the Qur'an is silent about Hinduism (the religion of your ancestors) and Buddhism but your Allah and his rasul the arabian warlord and caravn raider babble non-stop about Christians and Jews of Arabia which is further evidence that your Allah was no more than an Arabian God. <<

Hinduism and buddhism.. you mean, idol worshipping? Yes, nothing is mentioned in the Quran about that. At all.

>> And you know what? If we turn to the Qur'an it says in Qur'an 10:47: "wa likulli Ummatin rasul" oh I forgot that you know no Arabic the language of Arabian imperialism. Well I will help you: your Allah is saying that he sends a prophet to every nation, and you ani't no part of the arab nation.

This means that Muhammad was sent to the Arabs but not to your ancestors the Hindus. Sorry you joined the religion of the wrong prophet.

But like I say: you are out to spread the religion of the Arabic (and you ani't no Arab) through the medium of the Arabic language that you do not know, and in the process spread Arabian imperialiam. Shame <<

Having read this 4-5 times now, I would have to say that you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.
