    Re: As Muslims, we really need to rethink offensive things

    When the old Jewish lady threw trash at Muhammad (SAW) every day, did he insult her back or want her killed?

    He didn't. Instead, he ignored her until he found out she was sick. When that happened, he took care of her until she got better. Didn't she convert to Islam because of this?

    Many here talk "incredibly disrespectfully" about their own Muslims brothers and sisters. :(

    It might be disrespectful, but that doesn't follow that it should be banned.

    i didn't read that, astaghfirullah.

    as a matter of fact rattzi, the sahaba loved prophet muhammad more than their own lives their own parents and own wives and children,
    you can read about this in books n lives of the sahaba. they would rather be killed than see even a thorn hurt the beloved Prophet. So kindly, keep your rude comments to yourself and do not speak ignorantly.

    Don't make things up, please.

    You have no idea about the love and respect the Sahabas had for Propet Muhammad :saw:.
    They were willing to give up their life for him :saw:.

    The question really is should others be banned from laughing at something you don't find a laughing matter?

    I think people should always show sensitivity and tact, but if people really do find things utterly unacceptable, they have to make it known why, and hope in time attitudes will change. Shouting in the street and waving placards saying people who insult Islam should beheaded is not the answer. There is nothing anyone could say to anyone about any subject that would make their beheading a reasonable outcome, with the possible exception of those people who ring twice a week to ask you if you want to change your gas supplier.

    difficult question

    guess the answer is another question:

    who decides about what is a laughing matter and what isn't ?

    as someone else said, why should i laugh at something that i hold close to my heart? humour is part of Islam even the prophet peace be upon him made jokes, however why should i laugh at something thats not a laughing matter?

    humour, irony and even sarcasm are the salt of life

    if you are not able to laugh about yourself, about your beliefs, and even about your religion, IMHO you are in a sorry, sorry state

    oh pack it in with the assumptions and sarcasm will you.
    if you don't understand something why don't you ask like a normal person to be explained to you?
    regardless of wether a man or woman finds every tom **** and harry on the street attractive or not, in islam we are told to keep our gazes lowered and avoid unnecessary contact with the opposite gender. the laws of islam are for everyone, it doesn't change for a few people who claim to be different.

    Good Lord

    I had never realized some muslims were so desperate about having contact with the other gender that they would have to resort to minor riots in order to achieve their lustful purpose

    personally, protests achieve nothing, its an excuse for many to act like hooligans, free mix etc.

    violence is not the answer, however if Allah and his beloved Messenger, the best of mankind, the mercy for mankind, Muhammad peace be upon him is insulted, none of us should keep silent on the matter. how can any of us endure anyone insulting the one man who went through so much for us, who even on his last breaths was worrying about us, 'ummati ummati' .

    exactly

    people write "end of story", "close this thread", "khalas" etc simply because they would like to have the last word

    but, on the internet, no one ever has had the last word

    Loonietoonie and I both have different perspectives on this matter. He thinks that the boy deserved suspension. I don't. He thinks the girl had full right to be upset and such. I think she should have sucked it up.

    Different opinions. End of story.
    your discussion with loonietoons isnt my business. the issue is the effects of bullying on kids who 'suck it up' and just let it pass.
