I've Been Told!

Way back in the dim dark ages (Dec 2006), I wrote a post featuring a Q & A from our fave Imam.

The post merely copied a request from a muslim woman who was having marital troubles, and the response from the imam was basically too bad, so sad with a rather low care factor.

She should just pray more, and be nice to her husband.

That doesn't quite fit in with the idea of women apparently being honoured in islam, but maybe that's just me - I got a corker of a comment today on this post that pretty much says it all:
unbeleivers cannot understand what the faith is.
This world is nothing for muslims.
Our ultimate goal is Life after death


This is it in a nutshell.

It doesn't matter what your situation is here; it's all about teh After Life.

To get to the afterlife, you have to go through Death.

No wonder al qaeda and the talibs have no problems recruiting. Anything to score points that might go to another and get them to paradise before you.

It's also a very sad indictment on their lives that everything is so focussed on what is to come, there can be very little joy in even the simplest things like the laughter of a child or a brilliantly lit sunset with a mild breeze on an autumn day.

If everything is supposed to be ordained by allah, then surely taking some pleasure in this world is okay, too.

Then again, as uncovered meat, what would I know?

I tried to pronounce the dudes name but all i did was cough phlegm on the carpet and bit my tongue.

So is that your first quasi-stalker-loon?

cheers

Ho Hum. Latter Roman Christian emperors focused heavily on the afterlife, too. Sure, that helped bring about the downfall (really?) of that empire.

Is it so strange that I see Islam about 600 years behind Christianity? They are in their Dark Ages.

If the muzzies' ultimate goal is "life after death", why don't they just get a move on and get there? What do they have to bother us poor bloody infidels for? These "people" (and I use the term loosely) obviously can't think for themselves, then why not end it all now, and stop trying to? It will save them a lot of pain and suffering, and they will get the answers (though not necessarily the ones they are hoping for!) a lot sooner.

The thing that muslims do not question and really should, is that in paradise there is apparently sex, booze and all that. Yet much of that is forbidden here on earth. I mean, what kind of a religion is that.

It's like Christianity telling us that we must not commit adultery here, but in heaven it's all good, anyone anytime.

The other loony thing is that the leftie apologists for Islam don't see this as being a problem, and they hate Christianity more, go figure.
