Another standard biography, Zad-ul-Ma ‘ad, by Hafiz Ibn Qayyim, deals in great length, with the personal aspect of his personality.

I have presented before you only a partial list of the subheadings of certain details about the holy Prophet’s life.

You can judge for yourself and form some idea of how the more significant and basic features of the holy prophet’s life must have been collected and recorded, and in what detail, considering these smaller details which have so meticulously been recorded and preserved. In short, all aspects of his life have been observed and re corded.

<quoted text>Better Sandra Fluke, the poster girl for free sex.
I had to look the person up. Since not even in the sixties did any women endorse free sex. never in history in fact. It is merely the wet dream of men.

quote:
The Rush Limbaugh–Sandra Fluke controversy (pronunciation:/fl&#650;k/ ) began on February 29, 2012, when American conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh's remarks about contraceptive mandates included statements concerning Georgetown University Law Center student Sandra Fluke as a "slut" and "prostitute". Limbaugh was commenting on Fluke's speech the previous week to House Democrats in support of mandating insurance coverage for contraceptives. Despite disapproval from major political figures, Limbaugh made numerous similar statements over the next two days, leading to the loss of several national sponsors and Limbaugh's apology on his show for some of his comments. Fluke rejected the apology as dubious and inadequate.[1][2][3][4][5]

1. Creator Granted Rights: Since you have no objective proof for a Creator nor his alleged will, your base assumption is unverifiable and nullifies the rest of your assertions.

2. Men Paying for Women: This is a circular argument. According to you, women aren't supposed to work outside of the home, therefore, there is no choice but for men to pay for them. And by men paying for them, this is somehow proof that they should not work? You're not the sharpest knife in the drawer, are you MUQ?

3. Degradation of Family Structure: You've made this assertion before, but when asked for objective data to back up this claim, you failed. Anecdotal tales are not objective evidence. Would you like to try again?
Ans.

01. In fact we are the ONLY one with proof!! It is you people who are taking only based on assumption. We have statements right from the Creator Himself what could be a Greater proof?

And if any one who thinks that our Book is not from God, there is an open challenge for all humans to bring a book like it, ten chapter like tr or even one chapter like it.

02. Men paying for women: It is not a circular argument. It is reality. I ask you to bring statistics from your own society how much money women spent on men and how much money men spent on women.

Forget about our backward society, just talk about modern civilized societies like yours!!

3. Break up of family structure:

Again you should check your own statistics before writing anything.

The number of Children born out of wedlock is more than the numbers that are born in wedlock….does it shows your family structure is getting strengthened?

The number of single parents is on the rise year by year….is that sign the family bond is increasing?

The cases of suicides, mental illness, rapes, kidnappings, incest, domestic violence, child abuse, are all on the rise, does it shows that family structure is increasing.

And the "death knell" is granting these Sodomites and Lesbians the status of "Normal marriage".

Yes now you can say that your "family ties" are getting stronger and stronger. Who has got power to break a Sodomite and Lesbian relationship?

And the best part is that you people think that you are on the road to progress and Freedom!!

1. A book of ancient myths is not proof. Stories passed down from generation to generation are not proof. Number of adherents, regardless of how zealous they are about their faith, is not proof of any underlying truths. You do not have proof. You have faith which is belief WITHOUT evidence.

2. I can think of far more books of mythology better written than the Quran: Beowulf, The Odyssey, The Iliad just to name a few.

3. You are engaging in strawmen arguments with regards to single parenting statistics. Putting aside the fact that you make statements of statistics without any corroborating references to statistical studies or without demonstrating causation over correlation, the discussion was about the empowerment of women to make their own decisions about what their life's roles are, and not having men dictate it to them. The fact is, successful, modern societies DO empower women to make their own decisions or in equal collaboration with their husbands. Unsuccessful, antiquated societies DO NOT.

4. Finally, why do you keep saying "you people"? I think and speak for myself. If you are going to respond to my posts, you should address me directly and stop worrying about what other people have to say.

I just wanted to say that it is so wonderful that Messianic Judiasm is literally being found all over the world, and people are realizing that a Jewish believer in Yeshua is a “completed” Jew. Although there is persecution in Israel and other parts of the world, God is opening the eyes of people in miraculous ways. Check out some great new Messianic artists and songs at http://www.newfaithfavorites.com .
I think it's so wonderful that messianic christianity is enabling confused christians to get out of christianity and realize they've been working off of mistranslated and misinterpreted Hebrew texts which is called the Old Testament.

And the parade of adminstration incompetency continues:
http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/libya-securi...

Security practices at the diplomatic compound, where Blue Mountain guards patrolled with flashlights and batons instead of guns

"I don't have a background in security, I've never held a gun in my life," he said, speaking on condition of anonymity out of fear for his safety.

When hired, the commander said he was told "you have great English and get along with everyone and are punctual; we want you to be a guard commander.

The unarmed guards were told to sound the alarm over the radio and then run for cover if there was an attack, a Libyan who acted as a supervisor for the Blue Mountain local guard team at the mission said during an interview with Reuters.

Romney Boys Can’t Contain Their Obama Debate Anger
http://www.slate.com/blogs/trending/2012/10/1...

The exchanges weren’t the only things getting heated at Tuesday night’s presidential debate. Two of Mitt Romney’s sons got a little hot under the collar watching their dad spar with the president.

Asked on a radio how he felt when Obama called his dad a liar, Romney’s eldest son Tagg said he wanted to “rush down to the stage and take a swing at him.” Tagg also took issue with the president’s campaign trying “to do everything they can to turn my dad into someone he’s not,” which seems like a tall order considering Romney himself has a habit of shifting where he stands.

The Romney sons’ aggression didn’t stop there: Tagg’s brother, Josh, was seen giving the president a death stare during the debate, and that spawned a mini-meme. Menacing maybe, but hardly enough for the Secret Service to get involved.

Yeah, but he didnt remove the Mormons from his list out of the goodness of his heart, he did it so it he could endorse Mitt and not be criticized as a hypocrite.

On the other hand - he may be the rare example of someone who attempts to be consistent with their views - as shallow as his attempts are....

This is the presidential elections are reduced to these times.

The two 'Prime Actors" coming on stage and performing so that people could decide who is the better actor (or bigger liar) of the two.

And this they called Choice and Democracy?

Is it Choice and Democracy?

There should be a Third Option, I reject both the clowns and I want re-election!!

I am sure more than 90 % of people would vote for Third Option.!!

Long Live Democracy, Long live the "Live Show" of two "Main Political parties".... who are able to pull the wool over most people by this so called "Democratic Elections"!!

Ans.

01. If it is such a simple book as you claim, there would have been hundreds of similar books available in market (did not hundred odds Gospels flooded the market place within a short space of a few decades).

That with repeated challenges, no one came forward then and not in past 1400 years, your words look hollow.

Opponents of Quran also called it "nothing but a collection of ancient tales" and "If we wish we could write a book like it"

But they were mere hollow claims. And you are saying just the same.

We have faith and we have PROOF also for the faith. In you case you have mere theories and no proof.

02. Yes I could also refer you to many books of mythology, there is no dearth of it. But Quran is unique it is the word of God and no Myth.

03. The one who created men and women has certainly right to dictate them.

You are saying only about women, in Quran both men and women are directed to perform their roles. So your objections have no weight.

04. When you accuse islam do you accuse me or all Muslims? Why are you so incensed when I reply back?

You are representing Western thoughts and practices and you consider me as a representative of Islam and Muslims.

So why you should take umbrage if I criticize western practices as yours?

The Clown # 2 got elected first time because people had no "Third Option".

The Real gainers are the two major political parties, who get richer one way or the other.

Choose Tweedledee or Tweedledum.... it is same for them... they shed crocodile tears at the loss and within next four years come back to power.

It is poor suckers (the people) who have no real choice.!!

This is the "best democracy" in the world!!
