in response to reader comment: S.H. /Islam, misunderstood again !

I'm not sure if what you're saying is sarcasm lol, but anyway. How many Christians do you know who completely understand and practice Christianity. How many Hindus do you meet who completely understand and practice Hinduism. How man Jews do you meet who completely understand and practice Judaism. All religions you will realise, at their core, taught peace, love and understanding. Over time people make up their own misconceptions based on what they want for themselves, and what they want to believe in, without completely reading their original scripts and listening to what they hear through word of mouth from others. In the same way, how many Muslims do you meet who completely understand and practice Islam?

Not many, from any faith. I have enough friends from each faith to understand that much.

And sorry If you find it offensive, I will refrain from it, but if you don't like Non-muslim, would you want to be called a Muslim in that regard then? Doesn't make much sense to me. However if you find that offensive I will call you by what you wish to be called.

Sorry If I come across as offensive.
