and so it is...but like vanilla ice cream with alot of topping choices...you dont have to choose them all...and actually, you would be strange if you ordered vanilla ice cream with rootbeer, and chocolate sprinkles, with hot sauce, and hog gravy.

quran means to recite or recitation....tell me oh monkey boy, how could it be recited in english if the languages arent related? in fact since you have an islam bias..ask someone who speaks hebrew how well it translates into english and you will hear that about 40 percent of the meaning is lost. (i used to live in crown heights....)

same old kafr arguement.....instead of reaching past his own nafs...he revels in them like swine in mud....

after badr....that was the call, take it out of context but bush said n. corea is part of the axis of evil....guess that means coreans are related to satan....
meanwhile that hadith deals with the fact that the emuslims were under attack...and because of that the property and blood of your enemy is halal for you....you know..like eibn ladens blood is halal for your tax dollar ...and innocent children in iraq are being helped everyday with bombs from your tax dollar ...meanwhile your bigggest issue is the fact that during war people arent allowed to say "the enemy will pay"...the example is the sunnah which shows how he did it....ill give you an example...how many people died when the muslims conquered mecca?.......................ill give you a hint........its less than 1.
how many muslims killed any jews after they were betrayed by their neighbors in the battle of uhud (they broke the treaty)....ill help you....you seem a little slow..none
you take things out of context if you wish.......but the whole internet is watching you become a larger fool post by post...even the worst of the islam haters on this board have some understanding of islam...you are completely defunct of any knowledge...in fact anything you find seems to be from some rabid-xtian-white-racist-group-anti-islam-site. for you i wish you the best in your hope to use your cold dame prmote corner of the internet to debunk 1400 (and then some)years of history......you fail to recognize the power of amana:)
and thats what makes you a fool...a body w/o need of a ruh...no nur......twisted aql....may allah have mercy on yo

Watch my world dissolve,
And pretend tha
