Can Muslims explain this error?

You will find that true of all religions. Family pressure can be quite strong in a lot of families. There seems to be quite a few closet atheists that have not told their family they are atheist. Family values and religious beliefs are not always the same. Often family values will over ride the religious belief.  (Jun 19, 2012 | post #20941)

Can Muslims explain this error?

When I accepted Islam I had not even seen a Muslim in opver 20 years and was living smack in the center of a deeply Fundamentalist Christian community in the Bible belt of Texas. It was my decision and mine alone to accept Islam. I had absolutely no Influence from any neighbors, friends or Family. I am still a Muslim living over 100 miles from any other Muslims and in the Midst of a Christian region. A Muslim does not accept Islam because of pressure from people, they accept it because they have found reason to believe it is the Truth.  (May 30, 2012 | post #20577)

When you have two groups pointing guns at eachother, it is difficult to get either to be the first to lay down their guns. Their are two realities to face. Palestinians do not want the Nation of Israel to exist. Israelis do not want the Nation of Palestine to exist. Eventually you will have either Israel with Palestinian residents or Palestine with Israeli residents. At the moment it is Israel with Palestinian residents. I do not see mutual trust in the near future.  (May 28, 2012 | post #69047)

That is the point. the Palestinians are now in essentially prison colonies called Gaza and the West Bank with virtually no control over their lives. they can not establish the industries needed to improve their lives, no one can get adequate support in for them. Yet, people keep hollering the Palestinians need to start industries and help themselves.  (May 28, 2012 | post #69021)

True but the means to make the changes have to be allowed. It is difficult to have a business when you have no control over the water, electricity and sewage. The emphasis has been for the Palestinians to work in Jewish owned businesses and not in the West Bank or Gaza. to develop in Gaza or the West Bank regions you have to have a way to get in the needed raw materials and the needed start up capital, both of which are blocked. You can not get anything into or out of Gaza and the West Bank without approval of the Israeli Government. An interesting read. http://imeu.net/ne ws/article0020199. shtml  (May 28, 2012 | post #69009)

Are you aware of what happens to products made in the West Bank? Products made in the West Bank have to be sold through Israel and marked Product of Israel. Israel does not recognize Palestine in any form and considers the West Bank and Gaza to be districts of Israel. There had been large companies in the West Bank one of the biggest was the Coca Cola bottling company. http://www.thecoca -colacompany.com/c itizenship/pdf/har vard_kennedy_study .pdf The major draw backs are water and utilities which are under the control of Isreal. Also one of the major resources of both The West Bank and Gaza were the olive trees that have mostly been bulldozed under by Israel to make room for settlements. Yes it is true the wealthy Arab oil Moguls do keep the wealth for themselves and very little gets shared with Muslims.  (May 28, 2012 | post #68995)

I can only speak for myself. when I accepted Islam I was living in a small Texas town that was 100% Fundamentalist Christian with no sign of as much as one Muslim in the entire county. Who forced me to accept Islam?  (May 27, 2012 | post #68737)

However, in Islam a female has no financial responsibilities. A man is forbidden to touch a woman's wealth unless she chooses on her own to spend it on him. Among Muslims the males in the family have the responsibility for all of a woman's expenses, even if she is employed and making more money than them. Another point is the unpaid dower to the wife comes out of the inheritance first and goes to the wife. It is not part of the inheritance but an unpaid bill that must be paid before the inheritance is calculated. A wise woman demands a dower of several million dollars be written into the Nikkah. ZAp there is nothing left to be an inheritance. Also the home and furnishings are the wife's personal property and do not belong to the Husband.  (May 27, 2012 | post #46)

What is meant by Worship there and what word was used in the original Greek? You still do not have anyone praying to Jesus(as). It seems the word worship should be updated to respected or honored like the originaln English word worship meant. In our modern western culture worship is an action directed toward God and God alone. But this is not the case in the Hebrew Bible. The word shehhah is a common Hebrew word meaning to prostrate oneself before another in respect. We see Moses doing this to his father in law in Exodus 18:7. When the translators translate the word shehhah they will use the word "worship " when the bowing down is directed toward God but as "obeisance " or other equivalent word when directed toward another man. There is no Hebrew word meaning worship in the sense that we are used to using it in our culture today. From an Hebraic perspective worship, or shehhah is the act of getting down on ones knees and placing the face down on the ground before another worthy of respect. http://www.ancient -hebrew.org/27_wor ship.html The word "worship " has undergone a change in meaning in English. It comes from the Old English weorthscipe, which means the condition of being worthy of honor, respect, or dignity. To worship in the older, larger sense is to ascribe honor, worth, or excellence to someone, whether a sage, a magistrate, or God. For many centuries, the term worship simply meant showing respect or honor, and an example of this usage survives in contemporary English. British subjects refer to their magistrates as "Your Worship," although Americans would say "Your Honor." This doesnÂ’t mean that British subjects worship their magistrates as gods (in fact, they may even despise a particular magistrate they are addressing). It means they are giving them the honor appropriate to their office, not the honor appropriate to God. http://answers.yah oo.com/question/in dex?qid=2010091521 0359AAkW6Ob  (May 26, 2012 | post #20420)

Civil and Criminal laws are 2 different animals. there is no crime involved with sharia civil laws. It is 100% legal for Muslims to engage in Sharia civil laws in every state, provided the law does not violate any criminal law. Several states doe recognise Sharia Banking and they are getting to be popular. Sharia marriage is considered to be a binding marriage contract in all but 18 States. Which opens up an interesting loophole. Technically in the states that do not recognize sharia a man could marry 4 wives under sharia and not be charged with bigamy as the marriages are not considered to be legal marriages. for most of us Muslims our desire for recognition of sharia extends to Marriage, Banking, divorce, inheritance and adoption. It does not call for the enactment of new laws,or the dropping/changingi ng of any existing laws. Just recognition by the courts that Sharia civil laws between consenting Muslims are enforceable. One of the big areas is in terms of inheritance. Many muslims believe it is a sin to have a will. inheritance is spelled out in the Qur'an. However, if a Muslim dies in a state that does not recognize Sharia inheritance the state is the one who manages the disposition of any inheritable property. Judaic law for Jews is recognized in every State and cover the same issues Sharia civil laws cover. Except it is administered by a Rabbi while sharia would be administered by an Islamic Council. Keep in mind the court used for any civil law has to be agreed upon by all parties involved so unless a non-Muslim wanted the judgement decided by an Islamic council Sharia civil law would only involve consenting Muslims. Just as Judaic law when used here normally only involves consenting Jews.  (May 26, 2012 | post #28)

Without even questioning the validity of that. You still do not have anybody praying to Jesus(as). Praying to Jesus(as) is not biblical and not taught anyplace in the Bible. Jesus(as) never taught anyone to pray to him and it never became a practice until the 4th Century.  (May 26, 2012 | post #20416)

Remember, Jesus was considered a Jew and a rabbi. Historically probably a follower of the Essene sect. I see that verse as he was speaking of building a revised/corrected form of Judaism. You have no place in the bible were anybody worshiped Jesus and none of the early Christians ever prayed to him. It was not until the 4th Century did any prayers to Jesus become part of Christianity. Show me as much as one prayer to Jesus that dates back to before the 4th Century. there is no indication even in Church doctrine that the early followers of Jesus worshiped him. It is not biblical to worship or pray to Jesus.  (May 26, 2012 | post #20414)
