Now i know why you call "peace be upon you"


instead of furnishing "evidence" you are just attacking me personally

What everyone means by Jihad has nothing to do with argument. Only those who do Jihad can difine it.

Also, as a muslim it is your utmost responsibility to hold every word of Koran to be true till end of time. What is really sickening is the double standard muslims society has. They want freedome of religion in west and in their own homeland they deprive to their own minority.
