Do All Muslims Think The Same?

Posted By on September 15, 2019


Hey good humans! Welcome to
another episode of Spectrum. This is Michael.
– Hello. – I’m Ien, and stick around at the end. We’re gonna talk a little bit with you guys. Believing men and believing women.
Same level. – No, no disagree. I have–
– Same level. – in the court of law…
– No. No. – …the Quran explicitly states… – I’m sorry.
– …two female witnesses… – I’m sorry.
– …carry the weight of one male… – I’m sorry.
– …and that’s why I stood over there. [INTRO MUSIC] I pray 5 times a day 3 2 1 – I wish I was there with you guys.
[laughs] Like it’s– honestly it just gets really hard. Like it’s just five times a day and
it’s like spread throughout the day. We all live like young professional lives
and it gets kind of in the way. – If I could quantify it, I’m averaging
about three out of five prayers. I think I will find myself in prayer
more when I’m in desperation. It’s not something that’s subjective— I know we should be all
praying as a requirement. – I just want to say it takes a lot
of guts to be honest and say that. I honestly believe that if you
feel it in your heart, that you have a strong
relationship with God, God will have mercy on you with
whatever you’re dealing with, so… – Being on this line doesn’t mean it’s like [snaps] a piece of cake to do the five daily prayers.
– Exactly. – It is a struggle. It’s a challenge. I was working in a corporate
environment where I could not comfortably find a space so I’d have to
go pray in the car or in the parking lot. So it is a challenge, but yeah. Islam promotes violence 3 2 1 – We’re not allowed to
cut down trees during war. We’re not allowed to
hurt children and mothers. We’re not allowed to
hurt our own prisoners. And when people associate terrorism—
something so disgusting—with Islam, it hurts me because ISIS targets Muslims
more than they target anybody else. – And, in the age of Google,
there is no excuse. Like, if you don’t know that
Islam means peace, Islam means surrender, being a Muslim
is one who submits their will to God… How is that violent? – At the end of the day, I feel like media is
the one that has that hand and that stronghold, causing folks to be that way or think that way. – I guess I literally listen to the prompt, “Does Islam promote violence?” And I’m only speaking, not from my
personal perspective, but just… from trying to understand how discussions about this religion
can be used to defame it, to justify terrorism, per se. When somebody says, you know,
for the record, “Kill a non-believer,” Let’s acknowledge that sentence and if we’re gonna reach a
conclusion and a solution with somebody who does think this way
of us and our faith, we need to understand their argument thoroughly. – I disagree with what you just said. I really do, because I read
the Quran every day as a practice and not once in 2019 have I yet
gotten to a verse about violence. All of them about mercy of God,
turned to God, God is with you, to me that’s an emotional connection…
– Are you denying the verses— Okay I understand.
– …that is an emotional connection to my Creator, and I’m not gonna allow
anybody to take that away. – I’ll take the sentence–the statement
that “you can kill the non-believers.” At the time of the Holy Prophet,
the Muslims were in danger. They were the minority, right?
– Correct, that’s what I’m saying. – So, but it doesn’t necessarily mean
that because we are in danger, that whenever there’s
a non-believer, we kill them. What “non-believer” refers to are, like, the Meccans or like the people that
were actively going against Muslims and trying to harm us and stuff. – And I wanted this healthy discourse… – Yes, and I agree with you.
– …because I dwell upon that other perspective. I didn’t grow up proud of those verses
because I didn’t understand them. – Yeah, and several times–
– But now that I do have full understanding, I know that it’s important to keep, not a one-dimensional perspective, but—not even
accept the others but thoroughly understand it. Hijab should be mandatory 3 2 1 – I have strong feelings. [laughs] I just feel like it’s a woman’s right
to cover if she wants to. and to tell a woman what to do
with her body is totally against our Islamic principles, so… – You know being a guy here,
I just made a really conscious decision to be like “somewhat agree” because
people don’t understand that hijab is like a concept as far as like,
it’s not just like the actual headscarf. Islam really promotes the idea of modesty,
and that’s how you get closer to God. And if you feel like having a headscarf
is a way for you to get closer to God, then so be it. – A hundred percent agree with that ’cause it’s not just a headscarf;
it’s your behavior, it’s a personality, it’s how you treat your friends and your neighbors, yeah. For a lot of people, the process is build my courage, my bravery,
and my confidence, and then wear the scarf. For me, it was kind of reversed. I started with the scarf because I knew that I was not
gonna build that bravery unless I started wearing it. ‘Cause when you put it on,
you start acting different. You start acting nicer, you’re kinder because now
you’re representing your religion, your faith. – You make me think really deep about that
because I’ve been struggling, I wore it when I was about 15,
I tried it out. But it’s been a struggle because internally
I want to be a better Muslimah that I’m going to represent to society
before my outer side represents Islam. I have faced discrimination for my religion 3 2 1 Though I’m not a traditional Muslim female,
I don’t wear the scarf, when I was younger, I’d be walking home
from the masjid with my mom. She wears the hijab. This was before September 11th
even happening. She would get teenagers and cars driving by,
spitting on us, cursing at us. She would always say, just brush it off. – When you show that you’re
a Muslim in any way, people kind of, like you get those glances every so often. But what happened was that, after like all this, like,
election things happened, it’s funny, people who you grew up with,
people who you knew your entire lives are kind of looking at you a little differently. You know, so that kind of
threw me off a little bit. I was like, wait a second,
like you know me. I didn’t think this would be
an issue, you know. – I personally have not
experienced explicit discrimination. I conveniently can shave my beard
and try to compensate almost and it’s sad to admit, but I know it’s not my job to create
a comfort space for another person. However, I would say that, if you
do, guys, confront it explicitly, try to think of it as an opportunity to teach as opposed to reacting with emotion. – I think it also depends on
what the encounter is. Like, I had a beer bottle
thrown at me after 9/11. I’m not gonna go confront that person
and be like, “Hey, let’s build bridges—” – Right.
– Like it’s not—no… But if there’s someone who’s got a little bit of an attitude
or, you know, misconception, I’ll work on that. Women are equal to men 3 2 1 – I’m gonna somewhat change mine. – Wow.
– I had to think about it. – So the reason I stood on “agree”
and not “strongly agree” is that my understanding of
human beings is that that women and men in general have different roles. You know, men cannot
bear children, women do. In Islam, there’s
no discriminatory thing. There’s nothing that a man can do
that a woman cannot. – And I don’t have to prove otherwise except to cite in the Quran
when Allah addresses us, believing men and believing women.
Same level. – No, no disagree. I have a…
– Same level. I read the Quran, so you can’t tell me…
– …verbatim. – In the court of law, the Quran explicitly states…
– No. No. – I’m sorry.
– …two female witnesses… – I’m sorry.
– …carry the weight of one male… I’m sorry.
– …and that’s why I stood over there. I personally feel, and if it were
up to me, it would be 50/50. There is no discrimination
on my personal bias, but… – But why are you standing there? I’m acknowledging that the Quran
prescribes something here. Right? – No. In Islam, we do get
equal opportunities. Scientifically, no,
we’re not equal, because men can…
– May I ask a question to the room? – …do things physically
that we can’t do. – May I ask a question to the room? – Women can do things
that men can’t do. So my question would be: what aspect are we discussing? – Sure. Personal belief versus
Islamic belief versus societal belief… that’s three different things. If I’m saying personally, I believe women can be
greater than men. I believe women have– – Islam says that. – Thank you! Thank you!
– Islam promotes that… [crosstalk]
…completely, yeah. You can be a Muslim and a part of the LGBT community 3 2 1 – It’s such a broad question that
I’m gonna stand here just to be on the safe side. – I’m a contradictory human being. I pray with one hand and
commit sin with the other. So I’m not in a position
to be able to, uh, tell somebody that they’re
excluded from a whole faith if perhaps their faith
in God is stronger than mine. Okay, so you… you can be anything and be a Muslim. But I guess, I guess the reason
I’m standing here is because… Islam is a lot about the progression
of the human race, and about… about what is natural and what is not. Islam doesn’t necessarily support like
the lifestyle of the LGBT community, however, they do support
them as human beings and that is something, like, you know, something that
I’ve struggled with because… They have my hundred percent love and support.
I’d take a bullet for anybody. I don’t care what their sexual orientation is. My best friend he’s… he’s gay and we’ve had
these conversations before and… he’s told me that, you know what Husna? I love you for you. I love you for everything that
we’ve been through together. I don’t care what it is that you stand for and that’s, you know, it’s… It’s really comforting to know that you don’t have to support a lifestyle
to support a human being, to love a human being, and
to love people unconditionally. – I love what you said. And that’s that’s why I’m here because the prompt was:
“Can you be LGBTQ and Muslim?” And yes, you can be
anything and Muslim. If we’re gonna get into the logistics of
lifestyle practices and the core of scripture, yes, there are different lifestyles. There are things that are
asked for in scripture. But there’s nothing that says
they are not welcome in the faith, they are not welcome in
our houses of worship, they cannot pray, they cannot
stand beside us, they don’t fast. They are people. – It’s very hard, I would say,
to be a Muslim and… you know, part of the community. – I agree with you.
Beautiful statement. I am American 3 2 1 – I swear I’m not trying
to make this controversial, but… [Laughter] I somewhat disagree because
I’m first Afghan. Then I would say I’m American. – So I do identify as Syrian first, And so what is America?
So for me, that identity– ’cause I grew up
not feeling like a minority. And I was also a proud American,
I didn’t talk about my Syrian heritage, I wasn’t familiar with it. And then in the last decade,
it was like, “Whoa. I kind of whitewashed my history to be the proud American, to fit in.” And everyone was like, “if you took off your scarf,
you’d be just another white girl.” It’s just– there’s a battle. Like, I’m a proud American but, it’s like,
what does American mean right now… – Yeah.
– …with everything that’s happening? – As a Muslim, who just
happens to be black, in America, I’ve never not known this
to be my country because that’s what
this country was founded on. Being able to be who you are. Having the freedom to be that
and not feel persecuted. And so yeah, that’s how I live my life,
and I’m not going to let anybody… force me or talk me into thinking differently. [Applause] – So who wants to have coffee
and continue this conversation? – Oh yeah, let’s go to Starbucks! – I love how you always bring up another side to it. That’s great. It’s great. [Crosstalk] – So I have a question for you, that you’ve directed every single
episode of Spectrum, how do you go about finding out… like what prompts to ask? Yeah, how do you do that justice? – A lot of research goes into these episodes We try to meet with people from the group to help us come up with the prompts. We also ask you for some prompts. – The way to do that is
you follow us on Instagram… – That’s the way. – …and when we ask you
for prompts for certain groups, then you can contribute. Thanks for watching, you guys. We’ll see you around and Enjoy all the rest of the the Spectrum episodes to come forever and ever, and ever. – Foreve-e-e-er! See ya!

  1. Hey Everyone! Thank you for giving Spectrum a lot of love. This episode in particular was highly requested & we are excited to bring it to you. We are aware that this show & these 6 individuals don’t represent the whole Muslim community, but we hope this episode sparks dialogue amongst the good human fam.

    Our team is working on ways to include you (yes, you!) in the prompt building process for Spectrum episodes, so stay connected with us on instagram.com/jubileemedia. We want to make sure everyone is heard & we’re asking the right things.

    Let us know what prompts taught you the most below!

  2. Islam and the major religions are heavily conservative in nature. It's hard for these individuals who grew in fairly liberal systems to be on both sides of world. Islam for the most part does not respect or accept homosexuality and that lifestyle. It would be a lie to say you can be LGBT and a follower of the Islamic teachings. Just like l tell the Christians you can't just cherry pick what you want to hear from your doctrine.

  4. As a Muslim living among muslims let me just say … Islam does promote violence.

    The guy with the white shirt has more brains than the entire people with him in the room combined.

  5. Muslims and non Muslims alike are bashing the lady with the purple scarf because she vehemently disagreed that Islam promotes violence. Like wtf? She was very strong in her stand because she is brave but she doesn’t care because she is strong in her faith.

  6. All these people who have antagonistic feelings against Islam due to the media are out here continuously praising the white-shirt guy for his "unbiased opinions." If you know anything about the religion you would know that guy specifically seems to be very disconnected from the religion itself. He revolved with the culture but it's very evident he only sometimes follows the dogma.

  7. " u can be a muslim and lqbt" does make sense? so why does the Qur'an tell the story from the folk of the prophetsLuth Alaihissalam who received a painful punishment for mutual love for the same sex? its for learning for us dear… 🙂

  8. Coming from someone who studies Islam, the guy in the white shirt was the voice of truth. By contrast, the others were just talking about their own subjective interpretations of Islam whilst rejecting explicitly violent/sexist verses to suit their tailored understanding.

  9. As a non-Muslim, this was hard to understand…I wish people respected others thoughts and let them talk until the end rather than cutting them short. That was disrespectful.

  10. For the LGBTQ bit, a person can't be a Muslim and support LGBTQ.
    It's pretty clear in the quran, one example is the story of prophet lut (AS), there are probably more. But ig this is enough.

  15. All I see is bunch of brainwashed "Moderate" Muslims. The only guy that somewhat stated facts as prescribed in the Quran was the one with the white T-shit. All these conflicted questions arise from what most people know and feel is true but because of the huge pressure from their cultural and religious upbringing they try to find answers that suits their reality…it is interesting it is like watching people reacting to the fact that the Matrix is real but still cant process it lol.

  16. It would be interesting to find out how American Indians (Apache) and the new Americans think. New Americans claim america is founded on freedom. Why do we not speak about what happened to the old american tribes?

  18. I wish the guy in the white shirt was allowed to speak more, and the other guy as well. I don't know why some of them were extremely defensive. I think they were mostly all on the same page. Wish this video were longer!

  19. 3:40 – I'm ashamed, you bring up the verse, you acknowledge it has issues, and you do not even know the context behind it. Then someone tries to answer without complete knowledge but makes it seem like they do know.

    The verse has nothing to do with being a minority. It has to do with times of war.

  20. The guy in white asked questions as a human behaviour but unfortunately there wasn't someone to answer him only if there was some Muslim scholars Muslims like these don't ask any questions to scholar and end up nonmuslim brother pls ask professional or read Qur'an under supervision so you can better understand it

  22. These arent muslims
    1) A muslim cannot touch let alone hug a person of the opposite gender 12:16

  23. It really frustrates me how I can say the exact same thing as the woman in the black hijab about LGBT as a Christian and lose friends and be told I'm a horrible person, while her friend recognizes her in their friendship and still loves her, as well the fact that I don't see really anyone commenting about what she said except for a few offering sympathy. Literally watched the video from this series on Christians and most of the comments were hate for the women that pretty much expressed the same sentiment.

  24. I have read the whole quran and I love how people here are blatantly lying about quran and the faith to project islam in the best of light. Manipulation is a skill very well taught in the religion.

  25. The purple head woman is very ignorant I am in a Muslim society and I KNOW for sure that you Can’t be gay and Muslim and it’s written in the Quran!!! Also the witness of one man equals the witness of two women and that’s a huge basic law A FACT, And Islam does support violence and lets take stoning a woman who had sex till death as an example. She is changing the whole religion to suit the modern lifestyle and it can’t be right

    Reply
  26. I completely understand Husna’s struggle. Being raised in an evangelical household, I was conflicted for the longest time because, while I felt empathy towards LGBT causes, I refrained from openly supporting them. A good Christian girl wasn’t supposed to condone “sinful lifestyles”.

    I’m glad that Muslims in this video are supportive of women rights and the inclusion of LGBT people in religious spaces.

  27. These questions were so vague people were arguing against each other on completely different points. Take the male/female question: one person debates the interpretation of Quran, another throws in their personal opinion, and finally Jean girl argues biology.

  28. Each person is born in a circumstance which is not of his own choosing.  The religion of his family or the ideology of the state is thrust upon him from the very beginning of his existence in this world.  By the time he reaches his teens, he is usually fully brain-washed into believing that the beliefs of his particular society are the true religion and that everyone should have.  However, when some people are exposed to other religions, they begin to question the validity of their own.  The seekers of true religion often reach a point of confusion upon realizing that each and every religion, sect, and ideology claims to be the one and only correct way for men and women.  Indeed, they all encourage people to do good.  So, which one is right?  They cannot all be right, since each claims all others are wrong.  Then how does the seeker of truth choose the right path?  We will answer that after talking a bit about its importance.

    Is it worth it to search for the true religion?

    Absolutely, it is, because in most main religions, this present life is only a test for the next realm of existence.  In other words, our place in the hereafter, either Heaven (Paradise) or Hell, is decided by which religion we follow.  Moreover, the life in the hereafter is eternal, unlike the present life, which usually does not exceed 100 years.

    The Prophet of Islam, Muhammad, said: “Whoever enters Paradise is blessed with a life of joy; he will never feel miserable, his clothes will never wear out, and his youth shall never fade away. The people will hear a divine call: ‘I grant you that you will be healthy and never fall sick, you will live and never die, you will be young and never age, you will be joyful and never feel miserable.’” (Narrated in Saheeh Muslim).

    And God has said in the Holy Quran: “Truly, God will admit those who believe and do righteous deeds, to Gardens underneath which rivers flow (in Paradise), wherein they will be adorned with bracelets of gold and pearls and their garments therein will be of silk.” (Quran, 22:23)

    Also the Prophet said that the lowest in rank among the dwellers of Paradise (Heaven) will have ten times the like of this world, and he or she will have whatever he or she desires and ten times like it.  And that they will live a very happy life without sickness, pain, sadness, or death; God will be pleased with them; and they will live there forever.

    So after this, how can a wise person risk loosing all these pleasures?!  Usually in this world, we spend several years to get a certificate that entitle us for a good job.  So doesn’t our eternal life deserves that we spend for it few weeks or days of reading and studying to decide which religion is acceptable beside God and which will lead us to eternal happiness? 

    Which one is the true religion?

    Now comes the big question, which is the true religion of God?  God gave us all minds and intellects to enable us to make this crucial decision.  It is the most important decision in the life of a human being.  Upon it depends his/her future.  Consequently, each and every one of us must examine dispassionately the evidence presented, and choose what appears to be right until further evidence arises.  Below are some suggested steps for finding that:

    1.    First, to save time, omit those religions that don’t claim to be from God, and those religions that are not widespread, because usually the truth of a right religion is so apparent that many would follow it.  Also omit those religions that don't accept converts to it.

    2.    From the above step we will get very few religions left.  Read online and from books about the proofs, arguments, beliefs, and practices of these religions.

    3.    During this, keep asking God sincerely to show you and open your heart for the true religion and to assist you in following it when you find it.  Sometimes we know what is the right path but don't have the courage and will to go ahead with it.

    4.    After this study, mostly one of these religions should stand out, and you will find that one of them is more logic, authentic, and in accordance with your mind and heart.

    5.    Put your heritage, prejudgments, emotions, and fear aside and follow that religion for within it lies our happiness in this life and in the hereafter.

    6.    Now let us begin the journey of finding the truth.  For Islam, below are some recommended online resources.  Try to read them in the same order.  They are brief and can be read in few hours.  For the remaining religions, you may search online or at your local library.

  29. Let’s talk frankly.  Almost never do non-Muslims study Islam until they have first exhausted the religions of their exposure.  Only after they have grown dissatisfied with the religions familiar to them, meaning Judaism, Christianity and all the fashionable “-isms”—Buddhism, Taoism, Hinduism (and, as my young daughter once added, “tourism”)—do they consider Islam.

    Perhaps other religions do not answer the big questions of life, such as “Who made us?”  and “Why are we here?”  Perhaps other religions do not reconcile the injustices of life with a fair and just Creator.  Perhaps we find hypocrisy in the clergy, untenable tenets of faith in the canon, or corruption in the scripture.  Whatever the reason, we perceive shortcomings in the religions of our exposure, and look elsewhere.  And the ultimate “elsewhere” is Islam.

    Now, Muslims would not like to hear me say that Islam is the “ultimate elsewhere.”  But it is.  Despite the fact that Muslims comprise one-fourth to one-fifth of the world’s population, non-Muslim media smears Islam with such horrible slanders that few non-Muslims view the religion in a positive light.  Hence, it is normally the last religion seekers investigate.

    Another problem is that by the time non-Muslims examine Islam, other religions have typically heightened their skepticism: If every “God-given” scripture we have ever seen is corrupt, how can the Islamic scripture be different?  If charlatans have manipulated religions to suit their desires, how can we imagine the same not to have happened with Islam?

    The answer can be given in a few lines, but takes books to explain.  The short answer is this: There is a God.  He is fair and just, and He wants us to achieve the reward of paradise.  However, God has placed us in this worldly life as a test, to weed out the worthy from the unworthy.  And we will be lost if left to our own devices.  Why?  Because we don’t know what He wants from us.  We can’t navigate the twists and turns of this life without His guidance, and hence, He has given us guidance in the form of revelation.

    Sure, previous religions have been corrupted, and that is one of the reasonswhy we have a chain of revelation.  Ask yourself: wouldn’t God send another revelation if the preceding scriptures were impure?  If preceding scriptures were corrupted, humans would need another revelation, to keep upon the straight path of His design.

    So we should expect preceding scriptures to be corrupted, and we should expect the final revelation to be pure and unadulterated,for we cannot imagine a loving God leaving us astray.  What we can imagine is God giving us a scripture, and men corrupting it; God giving us another scripture, and men corrupting it again … and again, and again.  Until God sends a final revelation He promises to preserve until the end of time.

    Muslims consider this final revelation to be the Holy Quran.  You consider it … worth looking into.  So let us return to the title of this article: Why Islam?  Why should we believe that Islam is the religion of truth, the religion that possesses the pure and final revelation?

    “Oh, just trust me.”

    Now, how many times have you heard that line?  A famous comedian used to joke that people of different cities cuss one another out in different ways.  In Chicago, they cuss a person out this way, in Los Angeles they cuss a person out that way, but in New York they just say, “Trust me.”

    So don’t trust me—trust our Creator.  Read the Quran, read books and study good websites.  But whatever you do, get started, take it seriously, and pray for our Creator to guide you.

    Your life may not depend on it, but your soul most definitely does.

  30. There's a LOT of apologetics and double talk to justify their positions (no pun intended)

    But one thing is for sure, like all religions, they proved that Islam is subject to interpretation.

    In this exercise, it was rare to see everyone all take the same position on a subject. Even when just ONE of them didn't toe the line with the others (again, no pun intended) it is PROOF that the will of "God" is not absolute.

    Also, notice how they even debated / argued their positions. That alone proves their belief is a personal position and not an absolute.

    This how the world ended up with 30,000 Christian denominations alone where NO TWO can agree on the same narrative. HOW does the absolute word of Jesus get interpreted 30,000 different ways?

    The world would be a better and less bloody place if ALL RELIGIONS DIED and we started living life based on REALITY.

    In the Golden age of Science and math, the Muslims were ahead of everyone else (i.e. they invented Arabic numerals, they invented algebra, and invented algorithms), but thanks to Muslim evangelical leaders, they out the kibosh (pun intended) on any objective advances that would replace faith. Look at the number of Muslims who won the Nobel Peace prize for science… ZERO

  32. Being a non-muslim it honestly pisses me off when people think Muslims are all bad people or that they're terrorists. I had a Muslim boyfriend years ago and the way that he was treated in the US specifically was horrific. We need to be better educated. There are "bad" people in any culture/religion but that doesn't define everyone in that group.

  35. with religious people I feel like most of them (for example Christians and Muslims) only try to be nice out of fear of where they're going to be in the afterlife and that's just dishonest. Im sure it doesn't apply to everyone but that's what I feel like..

  36. I love how almost all of them agree with the LGBTQ+ community, my parents are homophobic and say that it is one of the biggest sins you could commit as a muslim, I STRONGLY disagree with that and when I saw that most of these people agree with LGBT I legit was sooo happy to know that we are so supportive and open-minded ^-^ -A fellow bisexual muslim girl <3

  37. I reaally didn't like how some of them would wait to see what others chose and decided to move to their "scale" based off of others/afraid of being judged! Just go with what you believe in, it's your opinion at the end of the day ><

  38. The woman who says she knows because she reads the Quran immediately makes me think of christians who say they read the bible every day yet seem to have no clue what it actually says. I xan list verses from the bible that people claim is not in the bible that I then show them

  39. I don’t understand why people don’t like the black woman with the purple hijab. She hasn’t said anything wrong, she stood up for her religion. Whereas the broken arm guy seemed like he just liked to disagree. You can believe in your religion and also be a feminist and just love people. I’m not Muslim but any negative points brought up about the Quran can easily be said about the bible or literally any other book of the same sort.

  40. 8:20 Man says women can be “greater” than men,
    and woman asserts that Islamic doctrine promotes that, completely….
    and other woman, who just refused to listen to the traditional interpretation, now applauds the other feminist’s unjustified bold claim.

    Incredible watching how some peaceful, relatively tolerant people eagerly lie to themselves to avoid cognitive dissonance from their extremely incompatible beliefs and identities.
    Very revealing video. if a bit disheartening.

    At least that man in the white shirt was honest and told it like it is written,
    even if he was admittedly a hypocrite by supporting an atavistic violent and patriarchal ideology while holding much more enlightened “personal” views, which he apparently considers inferior to the dogma of his religion of origin. At least he’s got the intellectual courage to be more honest with himself.

  41. I don't understand why people feel like they can express their opinions about facts as if it can be changed Hijab is wajib you're not gonna change that, it's not because you think that ppl can dress however they want that you have to deny the Truth.

  42. Subahanallah what's the point of this, the Deen is not your opinion is the Qur'an and Sunnah upon the understanding of the Salaf. Islam is not make it yourself buffet its submission to Allah and you accepting your shortcomings and trying to improve yourself.
