So, Ka'ba

Reader comment on item: Churches in Saudi Arabia?
in response to reader comment: Facing Jerusalem

Submitted by B. Williame (Belgium), May 5, 2008 at 10:29

Mohammed had a hard time doing both....

While Allah said to him to pray to Jerusalem. Eventually Ka'ba became the more holier city of the two for the muslims.... but as I understand this against the command of Allah, correct?

I looked at http://www.islamonline.com/ and added it to my favorites. but haven't found much of the egyptian or other incidents...

Have your read this one? http://www.islamonline.com/news/newsfull.php?newid=111319

I do find the response the kid gets a bit troublesome.

the answers he gets and conclusions he is given aren't directly bound to the sexual classes and also does give him what kind of solutions? Drop out of class, school, travel out of the country leaving your family? All this because he is worried about not being able to restrain he's urges? Perhaps following a course in self control would be more appropriate, no?

another incident... Stoning for the husband?? Hum, I understand more clearly why there are supposedly no mental institutions in the middle east?

Anyways I'll be reading that site as well from now on. Also the little remarks I gave on these 2 are but small ones I'm not going to discuss that site here in full.... But I fear I might learn not that what you wanted me to learn, possible ?

Thanks for the link.
