    Did I call them dumb? Did I call any non Muslims dumb? No, I did not. I said truly dumb questions.

      8 powerful habits to succeed


      1. Wake up early!
      2. Do it as soon as possible, you could die tonight so make the best of today
      3. Remember your life is unique, don't compare yourself to others. Use that jealousy as an energy to make your life a success"
      4. Have healthy habits. Set a time each day to exercise. Try with the mindset you're only going to do some jumping jacks for 5 seconds and the next thing you know, you're doing a workout!
      5. Read, read, read. Ponder over the Qur'an, learn more. Put the idiot box (TV) away
      6. Take note. Desires make slaves out of kings and patience makes kings out of slaves.
      7. Results aren't just worldly. Results are also about perseverance, retaining dignity, being honest, being honourable, doing good unto others.
      8. Always encourage others especially our brothers and sisters, let them know making mistakes is okay, we all make mistakes, do not ever undermine them and make them feel incompetent. This is also true for the dunya, so what if they don't get the maths sum right the first time, that is what LEARNING is.

        Re: What's the Dumbest Thing You've Heard About Islam?

        To be fair to Magic, burqas and niqabs used to freak me out a bit too and for the same reason. I was brought up in one of those 'modern liberal' type Muslim families so we kinda viewed the parda etc with disdain as though it was something illiterate village people wore or something. I also had some negative stereotypes cos' of the local Mirpuri community.

        Eventually when I gravitated towards the deen more in my late teens, I started covering my head myself and it took a while to adjust to realising the importance of the headscarf, but even then I found it difficult to get my head around the whole niqab thing. I think the internet helped me to change my thinking. Coming to a place like this, you interact with sisters day to day and have proper discussions with niqabis without even realising it cos' you can't see the person behind the screen (and can feel quite comfortable talking to them about stuff here). That helped me join the dots and properly understand the obvious; that there's a real person behind all that cloth and she's every bit as smart and capable as anyone else.



        As for whoever wrote that other post about a kafir refusing to eat halal meat- it's because there's a propaganda campaign against halal meat specifically. There are some articles and probably some youtube vids out there and when these urbanised kufaar see a poor chicken or lamb getting its throat cut; it shocks them and makes them feel it's "barbaric" so they decide they will never eat halal meat and don't ever pause to wonder where their own haram meat comes from, how cruelly it was raised in some dingey cage on a factory farm, pumped with artificial drugs to fatten it up quickly and then put out of its misery probably on a conveyor belt. Some European countries are trying to ban halal meat cos' of these stupid campaigns and even banned kosher meat as well.

            Once during a gate guard duty night, I ended up talking about Islam to a guy at the guard post. I told him about the rules and about paradise and such. During the whole time he was going "Wow". When I told him that the burden of choice now rests on him, his response was pretty much "OMG you doomed me to hell, why did you do this to me!?"

            Most people still give me the typical look as if I had bomb vest under my shirt when I tell them I'm a Muslim.

              How can a landmine blow up the woman but not the man? Jeez

                I heard they walk waaay behind the men because females are inferior.

Every place you have ever been and everyone you have ever spoken to would be different without you. We are all connected, and we are all affected by the decisions and even the existence of those around us.

                    Another 'good' one I've heard is that Muslims don't smile.

                          I've seen someone appeal to Qur'anic verses, like surah 56:17, and say that this shows pedophilia in Paradise (on account of 'youths' being mentioned). Now, granted, this was in the comments section of a Youtube video, so I guess I should've expected it. That's just how they roll. Truly, there is no limit to how far some people will go. :vomit:

                            But , chances are if you tell them , it is kosher , they would not mind.
                            I havent heard this but just putting out their.

                            I think their are two types ,It may be animal welfare or it may be islamaphobic as well,but i am leaning towards the latter simply because they would never question anything before eating, so i think they simply dont care.

                              I know what your saying but if he was a racist and didn't like Jews than he would have given the same remarks regarding kosher meat.

                              If my associate asked me "I'm going to McDonalds to get a Bigmac, do you want one"

                              I would either respond like this

                              "No thank you, I'm good"

                              "Sorry I don't eat non-zabiha meat or I don't eat non-halal meat"

                              Does the latter make me a racist? I don't think so

                              Do not invest your hopes in anyone but Allah and do not fear anything but the consequences and repercussions of your sins!

                                Ok so I used to shower 5 times a day when I first reverted a year ago, I misunderstood what I needed to do.

                                The things said to me at work are similar to what some have posted already.

                                All Muslims are secretly wanting to kill westerners and to take over their land. I said, what if it's our land because we were born here, like me, then it's ours already => and it's just a matter of numbers and time =>>

                                Another is always the oppressed claim and that Muslim women don't realise they are oppressed that's why they say they're not oppressed. My answer is who oppresses them please? they usually say, oh their fathers and brothers. Then i tell them I have no Muslim family oppressing me so what's my excuse? then there is silence, lulz
