    I agree.

      Explains why Asians read so much into what you say...
      Do you mean South Asians? If so, which part? Do you mean Middle Easterners, since they're also Asian? Or East Asians? What about that part of Russia that's Asian? Or the Central Asian people as well?

      You know, the first time I saw Asian on the forum I was shocked that everyone here assumed that they were Muslim when Asia is a huge continent filled with different groups of people. Plus, over in my side of the pond, when people think of Asians they think of East Asians.

      What a funny world that we live in.

      "Who is he that will loan to Allah a beautiful loan, which Allah will double unto his credit and multiply many times?
      It is Allah that giveth (you) Want or plenty, and to Him shall be your return."
      Surah al-Baqarah
