    How do Sunni Muslims view the Battle of the Camel ?

    The Battle of the Camel was about who would succeed Uthman of the Umayyad Caliphate. Shia Muslims believe Prophet Muhammad nominated Ali (his cousin and son-in-law) to be successor but only 10-15% of Muslims in the world are Shia. What do Sunni Muslims believe? Do they support Lady Aisha? Why?

    Iran and Saudi Arabia: Double Standards ?

    Why do Iranians complain about the mandatory headscarf rule in Iran while the Saudi Arabians do not appear to complain about it ? Why do we make documentaries and news articles about the protests in Iran but say nothing about Saudi Arabia ? Is Islam to blame?

    Iran's headscarf crackdown: blame Islam ?

    If girls in Iran are getting beaten, arrested and killed by security forces, is it the fault of Islam ? Does this mean Islam will decline with time as more and more Iranians rise up against the regime ?

    Sharing some thoughts about unity

    Howdy! We like to divide the world up into categories. This is to simplify communication among other things. If we had to be exact with our words in every case communication would take a ridiculously long time. The issue is that the categories and meanings we have in our heads tend to not all...

    Takeaways from the first Tablet of the Tabernacle of Unity concerning interfaith dialogue

    Every age hath its own problem, and every soul its particular aspiration. The remedy the world needeth in its present-day afflictions can never be the same as that which a subsequent age may require. Be anxiously concerned with the needs of the age ye live in, and centre your deliberations on...

    What Jesus said! Jesus Himself? How, What and where?

    Muslims, Bahai's, Christians, Some Hindus, and even a few Jews, quote sayings of Jesus as if they are historical sayings of Jesus himself. Of course most Christians would definitely believe the New Testament has his sayings in some form or another. Some believe they are absolutely verbatim...

    Sikh vs Muslim separatism

    Quite a lot of Sikhs are against the Indian National Congress and support Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale. They believe that Khalistan is the only way they will be safe. Most Muslims support Palestine because they feel the land was stolen from them by Israel. I do not know why some Muslims support...

    Religions actively employ the cycle of abuse.

    I believe religious people frequently employ the cycle of abuse as a method for indoctrination and inculcating unquestioning devotion. I feel there is a strong parallel between indoctrination and the cycle of abuse. I have confidence that this practice causes emotional, physical, and...

    Can science reconcile different moral positions?

    I wanted to get opinions. I’ve had several conversations on line on the subject of morality. There are so many philosophical positions one can hold and many seem to be exclusive, on their own accounts, and have ardent defenders. Is morality neural and societal simultaneously? Subjectively, our...

    Saudi Arabian schools to teach Ramayan and Mahabharat

    I don't know how true this is but as far as I know you're not even allowed to wear a crucifix or Star of David pendant. What is life like in Iran where there are minorities ? Maybe that can show us how it may turn out in KSA

    To Blaspheme or not to Blaspheme?

    To Blaspheme or Not to Blaspheme? There is a huge difference between criticizing religions (being critical), as in "not blindly accept things", and blaspheming (the red part). It can be compared with the RF Rules. Criticize ideas all you want, just don't get personal, as in bullying, insulting...

    Questions for Muslims & Non-Muslims to address regarding the contents of the Qur'an

    Not sure if this is the correct area to post this, but I wrote a post in another thread and it was suggested to me to make a thread for it separate from the thread I posted it in. I'm looking for people who are well educated regarding the contents of the Qur'an, the Ancient Arabic Language and...

    Charlie Hebdo Muslim hypocrisy still not cured Why these Muslims are hypocrites: They impose their religion on others, but criticize other's culture/religion (Respect goes 2 ways. As long as they belittle other religions, they have no right to object if we do the same) (The Muslims started...

    Why don't Jews and Muslims eat pork ?

    If Zoonotic diseases come from being in close proximity to animals and not being evolved enough to eat them then did pigs cause disease in the Middle East thousands of years ago ? Is that the reason Jews and Muslims don't eat pork ? If that's the case then we've evolved enough to eat pork for at...

    Proof of Islam?
