dhimmi no more

I guess you didn't get it. I acknowledged that you were right in saying that diin means religion. let me paste my exact words on here for you and you will see that I have accepted it. no problem. you are Mr. Arabic Master, and that's good for you, but you fail when it comes to knowledge of Islam. you refute me only through saying that I cannot speak Arabic so therefore I am in no way a Muslim. I pity the likes of you. anyways, here are my exact words in regard to the word diin: (i have bolded parts for your convenience)

My apologies to you on the word "deen", that sparked a debate that I could not have won. you know Arabic, and that is good. so again, I am sorry. however, I will say that despite the fact that Deen does mean religion (again, I am acknowledging the fact that you know Arabic), Islam is nevertheless a complete system of life, and there are massive amounts of evidence to prove it. My regards, dear friend.

so dhimmi no more, I did not say you were wrong. I am over the word diin (using your transliteration, O Arabic Master), and i do not deny its meaning in Arabic. I only say that despite this, Islam is nevertheless a complete system of life (and you know this...oh, wait, you dont know Islam...you know Arabic) with a complete political, social, economic, and, yes, a religious system within it. simple. my regards.
