Posted on 07/04/2008 2:28:41 AM PDT by A Navy Vet
I have a legitimate question to my American Muslim brothers:
As an agnostic, how would I be able to convert to Islam? What is the procedure??
Do I have to renounce my childhood Christian background? What Islamic rites must I recognize? What ceremonial process need I go through to give my soul to Allah and his Prophet Mohammed (Peace be upon Him)?
As I read the Koran and the Hadiths, I am starting to get a better picture of Mohammed's (Peace be upon him) message.
I am now desirious of leaning more, but don't know where to start.
After reading much on the Internet, including ancient scribes in the Koran, I am learning that Islam just may be the avenue to peace on Earth and eternal life.
I am seriously fed up with the direction our country is heading.
I NEED and WANT to believe that there is a higher power that will bring my human brothers together and fight for a rightous moral concept that only Allah can provide.
Seriously, help me to understand. I am at a lost and looking towards Islam to provide the moral answers I need in my life. Christianity and Judaism and agnosticism have not provide the answers.
I live in Orange County, CA. Can you guide me to a local Mosque so I can hear and experience the wonderful teachings of Mohammed (Peace be upon him)? Too much rum has made me lost and I want something more. My wife is willing, also.
Any Muslims here?
If you’re looking for peace...try another religion.....
You sure are FRiend.
I am learning that Islam just may be the avenue to peace on Earth and eternal life.
Good luck with that...
I am not a Muslim, but I know the procedure. You have to take off your shoes, kneel, face Mecca, and announce five times that there is no god but al-Lah and Mohammed the Moron is his messenger while banging your forehead against the ground with your ass in the air. I would suggest that if you do this, you do in someplace where there are no queers.
If she wasn't, would you throw acid in her face....your "brothers" would. www.acidsurvivors.org
First, you will have to have your wife circumcised
LOL! I assume this little effort was written by some local muzzie who believes he is planting the idea in the minds of local agnostic, rum-sodden Americans. Or maybe he's thinking of the British navy. The stilted English sounds kind of 18th century, anyway.
Back sloooowly away from the bong.
“No one comes to the father but through the son”. The one true God is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the creator of all things. Thou shall have no other Gods before me. Islam is the work of satan, not God.
Converting to Islam is to declare and testify that: "There is no God except Allah; Muhammad is Messenger of Allah. La ilaha il-Allah, Muhammad-ur-Rasulullah".
English translation of this Arabic phrase is:
"There is no God except Allah; Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.".
I will recite the above phrase with witnesses and hopefully Allah will accept me into his heavenly kingdom.
Is this supposed to be funny?
I suggest more rum...
“Any Muslims here?”
There were a few but I sent them out to clean my pig pens.......
Revelations prophecised about the coming of a “Dark Prophet,” who would claim that he was a follower of Christ, but put himself above Jesus. He would conquer 1/3rd the Earth, and cause another 1/3 to die of plague or famine.
Mohammed calls himself the Prophet of God. He claimed he believes in Christ, but placed himself above Christ. He conquered 1/3 the Earth. His followers practice of hurling plague-infested corpses into fortresses helped the plague sweep across the Earth, from China, to India, to Europe, and 1/3 of the Earth died.
Mohammed acknowledged being possessed by Satan. His visions came to him during fits of rage, akin to epilepsy. He preached that the Christian and the Jew must be converted by the threat of death, or be slain in their disbelief. He urged his followers on to global war, calling bloodshed beautiful in the eyes of God... but to seize power by deceit if that was more effective.
He promoted polygamy. His visions of the afterlife were purely Hedonistic, promising those who died in war for Islam 72 virgins. He took several wives, including one as young as six years old. He taught that raping boys didn’t count as adultery if they were under age.
Across the world, particularly in India and China, 350 million people were slaughtered by Islamic leaders. (Compare that with about 1 million by Christians combatting the spread of Islam.) Inheriting the knowledge, science and wisdom of the Greco-Roman and Judeo-Christian worlds, they conquered Europe, spreading from the East as far West as Vienna, from Africa as far North as France, and halfway up the Italian peninsula.
But since Islam is hostile to knowledge, they culturally stagnated, and were pushed back by Christian “Crusaders”. (Yes, the Crusades were a defensive war, called by Pope Urban in defense of Cosntantinople!) Islam collapsed into ignorance and poverty. Now, because of oil wealth, many Islamic nations are among the wealthiest in the world, yet their populations are overwhelmingly destitute; their ignorant leaders horde their wealth, afraid of developing a middle class or educating their people. Their brutal poverty is explained away as a chastisement by God, for failing to be willing to die in wars against Jews and Christians.
If ever there were a more miserable, accursed and evil people, they have been lost to history. And you would join these enemies of freedom, haters of enlightenment, and destroyers of civilization?
