What are your impressions on Muslims?
Same as with everyone else, there are good people, there are bad people, doesn't matter if you're muslim or not.

Did those impressions come through media or actual research?
Actual research.

What do you know about Islam?
Quite alot, I have studied religion on university and I would say my knowledge is quite good.

What do you know about the connection of Islam with Christianity and Judaism?
I know it's the same god, I know they share the same saints (not all), I know they share the same characters (Angels, etc), and more.

Shia muslim's are too extreme and i see them as a threat to civilization (well only if they try invading other countries or other countries like the U.S. Europe and Israel are in their land).. the Sunni Muslim are cool people though some are terrorist... my good friend is a Sunni Muslim lives in Riyahd right now so w/e... if i was born in a muslim state and followed the religoin and saw what the U.S. is doing i would understand the terrorist more... don't get me wrong.. im not the govermnent or a juggernaught so i would let anyone practice w/e religoin they want and Islam is just another on of the religions.. just is a really powerful one with people interferring with it but the Sunni part is coooler then the aggressive more strict Shia like how the Catholic Church was back in the day.. i really hate the prejudice that all Muslim are terrorist my friend's are Muslim and i can't have people hating on them!!!

I think is awesome how they hold their beliefs to their hearts and that's why there's a saying "for everything there's a limit" but I think they don't have limits...they'd kill for their religion!

My knowledge of Islam and their religion is very minimal as everything I've heard about them has been outrageous for me so I don't have interest to learn more...correct me if I'm wrong. :)

The main reason why I have negative views towards them is because I've heard that women have no value for them. I know many sexist guys in USA but we have our rights and liberty, no such thing over there or so I heard.

In dubai, if a woman is raped she will go to jail for having sex with another man if she's married...that's fucked up if you ask me. And the rapist should confess for them to convict him or have at least 4 FOUR MALE WITNESSES!

I also met a Muslim, nice guy with a good education and I thought well of him until he saw me wearing a baseball cap and told me to take it off because women shouldn't wear men clothes and when he asked me if I had a boyfriend before and I said "yes" he made a face like if I've had killed someone and told me that when a man asks you that same question I should answer "no" because that would make me pure in their eyes. Bastard.

I don't like the way they believe but thats their culture. I especially hate how they treat their woman. However if I was born into that religion I would believe it and follow it. People should be able to believe how they please but not twist their religions to control people such as their woman. Also even though I say they treat their woman in a way I dislike some of the men in that culture spoil the mess out of their wifes or multiple wives, but they have to obey them. Hey I might could do that as long as I don't get beat for small mistakes and my husbands a rich one. Thats just my small take on it. Sorry if its offensive. Correct me if you feel the need too.

I don't think I would conform to their beliefs if I was born there. Women in the western world (US and UK mainly) didn't have rights before, they fought for an emancipation in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Why can't they? I think those guys will just kill them before hearing whatever they have to say...I think it is more of fear than love for money but I could be wrong...some people are just out of my world and want them to keep out of it.

Well... My question is simple but for some people its really hard to answer.

The reason I started this thread is because a lot of people have very negative views about Muslims and Islam in general. Mostly Americans (No offense) . I am a Muslim for those who are wondering and I want to know your opinion because in Canada I haven't really seen any religious .

One thing to keep in mind. Please think before you give me your answer. I would like to hear a logically well explained answer if you want to give one.

You can also state whatever you like. You are entitled to you opinion.

BTW Mod if this is a thread that is not to be made... Please do delete it as I do not want to cause a verbal riot :)


I don't particularly have a problem with anyone. I might not like them because of conflicting personalities or what not, but I generally won't "hate" someone just because we don't think the same.

That being said, it is to my knowledge that there are different "denominations", if you will, of Muslim/Islamic beliefs much like there are different denominations that interpret the Bible different in Christianity. My only problems are the radical extremists. The terrorists. I know the Quran doesn't explicitly say "kill all infidels". The "verse of violence", as it were, it written in the context of the persecutors first attacking Muhammad.

What I don't agree with is the radical groups that are still at war with their own people and have twisted it to mean something else.

As long as you're not a nutcase, I couldn't care less what you believe in, exactly. That's a personal matter.

I really don't see it as a whole lot different than Christianity. I'm atheist so I don't really believe in any of the ideals of any religion but I'll listen to what they have to say and offer a logical rebuttal. It's not the whole religion that is bad, it's the individuals in every religion that make it stupid.

I feel nauseous. But it's worth noting that the bill is driven more by self-interest than a religion.


"With this bill, you can be a paedophile and get your bait in the pretext of adopting children," Sadr said. Some experts believe the new bill is contradictory to Islamic beliefs and would not pass the Guardian Council.

An initial draft of the bill, which had completely banned marriage with adopted children, was not approved by the council and it is feared that MPs introduced the condition for marriage to satisfy the jurists and clergymen. This is why Sadr fears it can pass the council this time.
