Man alright I'm gonna pop off all u uneducated fools that dont know anything abt Islam- my religion,and my faith.

O.K. man first of all I hate all those stupid, idiotic, Muslims who think they going to get sumthin out of suicide. In Islam suicide is one of the most biggest sins. This is against the Sharia (unwritten laws of the Muslims) If you commit suicide, are gay, or a hypocrite, you are commiting a very big sin. These Muslims only represent about 1% of the whole population. Islam literally means submission. In the Quran it says this which is defined wrongly by most people. "Kill those who opress you, but if they stop than you stop" Now tell me this if any1 of you is being opressed what would you do?
Second- We do not beat our wives, rape our daughters, or kill our sisters. In fact if you actually read the Qur'an women are given alot of rights. Any adulterer is commitng a very big sin whether they be a poor man or a rich priest. Islam actually gives women the right to vote, to hold a political postion, the right to divorce, a woman cant be forced into marriage. Remember this was written at the same time when women were being neglected in Roman, and Greek culture. The ideology of arranged marriage came from India, Pakistan (before Islam was spread there), China, and Japan.
Third- Jihad is not "Holy War" its actually means struggle. Look it up if you want.
Fouth- This is not a Eastside or Westide thing going on here. I love both sides. America has given me the oppurtunites that I need to be living the way I am. I owe a huge debt to this country and I'll defend if I have to.
Fifth- Muslims arent the only ones doing wrong look at the Priest scandal that popped up, and did you know that Hindus burn widows with their husbands when they die, they bury children alive for a certain amount of time. Now to me that is sick. every religion has its Wackos I think nobody would like to be generalised for some peoples actions.
Last point I want to make is that Muslims were at the forefront of science and technology, until power hungry kings came along. Actually Muslims have to vote in a elected offical there is no king. Any country that is doing this is wrong. Look it folks. To prove Muslims have made a big impact in this world I'll leave with a couple of Muslims who made history.
1. Mohammad al- Khawarismi- Founder of algebra and trigonemtry
2. Hasan ibn al-Haitham- Established science of optics and linked algebra with geometry.
3.Abu Raihan al-Biruni- Correctly establshed the circumfrence of the Earth, and was first to find about the difference between the speed of light and sound.
4. Jabir Ibn Haiyan- Classified the chemistry elements with their properties.
5. Abu Abdullah Al-Battani- First to correctly know the length of the sola year to the second.

These are only a few of my favorites. Oh yeah, if you wanna know Our Prophet (saws) was asked to be wed. His wife alo his boss asked him to marry her. ..
