I'm a Muslim ask me anything.

Don't forget Muslims don't need to pray all day everyday to be Muslim. The same way as Christians don't need to be in church 24/7 to be Christian.

I will answer to trolls within reason.

Let's try to avoid buzzword questions/statements. They don't bring the conversation anywhere interesting.

Most of the time there are really interesting questions. If I sift through the anons trying to troll, some people are very insightful. I also make this thread on /b/ because people are open to ask anything here, its one of the only true places where people are anonymous.

Why Islam?

In general Abrahamic religions have a very interesting perspective on the struggle with the inner self. It states that humans have inert desires, these being detrimental (evil), in opposition it is our duty to do the hard thing and no succumb to these desires. To fight against these desires and urges to do the right things.

In day to day life. Immediate pleasures are easy to come by, however they are temporary and often leave you with more emptiness than well-being. Long term achievements and struggles are those you will be proud of, things that will bring you fulfillment. This is amplified in the Q'ran compared to the Torah and Bible, this is the concept of jihad.

Muslims then believe that the most important thing one can do in his life is the liberation of the mind from the body. To free your spirit from these worldly acts, to understand the potential of the human as a thinking being and not just a vessel moving through time.

Many other religions in the East address these issues as well. Jainism is very interesting and I have studied it. It is actually very similar to fundamental Sufi Islam.

They are not reasonable to follow in modern society, or in any society. They are idealized structured philosophies. Beautiful and I wish we could all be this pure, but the world is not so.

I can keep going. But if you have specific questions that would be useful.

The Q'ran was written by Mohammed's disciples and wife. He only spoke the Q'ran onto them.

Don't you think there might be some good in a book that has thousands of years of trial and error? I think there are many tools that religion can provide to lead a happier and more fruitful life.

During Ramadan do you abstain from sex as well?

What is Eid?

>>703085723
Well, I mostly agree with what you are saying, but none of that justifies any belief in some supernatural entity and such. You can simply acknowledge that humans are flawed and try to overcome it without the need for any sky wizard.

So I guess that didn't really answer my question. While I agree that humans have detrimental tendencies etc, none of that seems to be solved (to me) by making up invisible deities and claiming "X and Y are what god(s) wants and if you don't do it you'll be punished forever".

Only at night. Sex is not permitted during the day.

No, I have not had bacon. I have had porc by accident in China.

I really don't know. Perhaps, the complete understanding of the human mind. Kind of like how we have mapped the genome. If we map the brain and then understand all of its functions. It might push me to adopt neuro-based solutions for what religion provides me today.

Eid, just means a day of feast. There are multiple of these during the year. The most important one is the last day of Ramadan.

>>703086070
You are taking a very structured Christian understanding of God. God is not a sky wizard. Christians misunderstood these parts of the Torah and simplified them. As was told onto Moses, and which is written in the Torah, the Bible and the Q'ran. God is as he is, he is everything that is, has been and is not. Some Christians have misinterpreted this. However, it is all encompassing and should be all encompassing. A Jewish philosopher said that once you start to define God you have already placed too many boundaries onto the entirety of that which God is.

The Qu'ran is mainly filled with statements on how great Allah is and how terrible the unbelievers are and how badly they will be punished and how you will all point and laugh and openly mock them in the afterlife.

Though there may be spiritual elements mixed in, (I imagine that's mainly in your hadiths if you're a sufi) it's not as if you need a religion to be spiritual.

Are you suggesting Mohammed wasn't a goatfucker?

All religions can provide comfort to people who didn't luck out in the great lottery of life, so there's always some value in that. I get why people believe this shit, because their lives are miserable, so religion is their only hope. But that's not enough to justify all the evil shit (organized) religion has brought down on humanity. It's all just means to control and abuse people who fall for this scheme. I'm pretty sure if those Mohammed or Jesus dudes existed, they never imagined how much pain and suffering organizations they basically founded would inflict on the world.

This question usually comes up and it's simply based on misinformation.

Taqiya is the forgiveness of God onto an individual if he sins when his life or freedom is at risk. For example, if I am imprisoned and the only available food is pork, then it would be permitted for me to eat it. According to Taaqiya, not eating the pork and committing suicide as a result would be a sin and not forgiven by God.

Taaqiya can only be used when there is a risk. It cannot be used to spread misinformation about God or Islam. That is always a sin and is stated in the Q'ran as so. Consider this, if I lie and you start following my false teachings, then you will be following a false deity. That is a sin for you, and a sin for me to encourage the worshiping of false deities.

When you die though you get 72 virgins to rape repeatedly as they regrow their hymens and trees that grow infinite fruit to feast on so you can wallow in hedonism at the fulfillment of those inert desires you just bashed.

It depends. In Morocco, homosexuality is a taboo issue. It is accepted in private. However, it is outlawed in public.

In Turkey, Malaysia and Indonesia it is accepted openly.

In Iran it is entirely outlawed.

In North American Muslim families it is usually taboo but accepted.

It depends. All people are different.

I am not moderate. I am a serious practitioner of Islam in its fundamental form. The fundamental form is not what the word has been perverted to mean. It is the root of what Islam is.

Jihad is an internal struggle. The word jihad appears in the Q'ran more often pertaining to the internal struggle than for the external struggle. It is also stated that the foremost jihad is with the self

Islam is not a religion of peace nor war. It is like any other ideology or philosophy, it is a text that provides means to live a better life. Violent people will apply this philosophy in a violent manner, peaceful people will apply it peacefully. For example, Darwin's theory of evolution is a scientific theory. Neither evil, nor peaceful, it is just a theory. However, it was interpreted by violent people and later became the basis of social-Darwinism. Does that mean that the theory of evolution is evil? No, it simply means that evil people are willing to interpret anything to suit their evil tendencies.

Theocracies are not an effective governing body, Religion is something that is meant to be between the believer and his community. If every individual in a society were a perfect practitioner, then theocracies would work. However, it is impossible to ensure that all people would be perfect practitioners. There will always be individuals that do wrong onto others. Or, act in ways that are counter-culture, be it good or bad. Therefore, theocracies do not work.

'Religions are like a chiseled and tested version of what an individual might construed as his spirituality.'

Religion is a mockery of spirituality. In fact, it's probably worse than that, because Religion is for the most part imposed on young children who don't fully know what is real and what isn't, teaching them the rules and regulations of how not to be eternally tortured and avoiding at all costs them coming to their own conclusions on reality.

Sure, during prayer or gatherings like dikur (not sure if i spelled that right) there is a sense of higher purpose/transcendence but that can be attained through meditation or any other number of things that don't have all this bullshit bolted onto it to have you believe you have to hate someone for not supporting your cause.

"O ye who believe! Choose not your fathers nor your brethren for friends if they take pleasure in disbelief rather than faith. Whoso of you taketh them for friends, such are wrong-doers"

>Is the pope's life miserable?

No, pope is actually the bad guy here, using religion as a tool to force his morals onto people who trust him as an authority figure. I honestly don't care if he honestly believes using condoms is immoral or not, but the fact that he uses his position to tell poor, uneducated people to avoid using contraception is just deplorable.

>There is a lot of good that can be learned and had from religion. It is a great source of knowledge about things that science has yet to understand about the mind and wellbeing.
Religion is only as good in telling us about ourselves as any fiction, because it's just an artistic representation of life, with some crude moral rules derived from those stories. It's not a source of knowledge of any kind, because religion by definition doesn't deal with empirical facts.

The Q'ran was written for a plethora of people, ranging in intellect. Heaven is described to have all of your wants and desires. For certain people 72 virgins is an unimaginable desire, impossible in the world in which we live. The same is true for endless fruit, and happiness, these are all things that are not possible in our world. Heaven is supposed to be everything you want. Anything. For me, 72 virgins would be of very little interest.

Yet Muhammad was the first caliph, well not technically. That title was granted after his death. That empire he founded essentially based off war and religion started in his lifetime. Yes Christian kingdoms used religion to justify war, but the creation of either Judaism or Christianity did lead to an empire devoted to it within 50 years.
That empire founded in war and religion is the basis of what current extremist(Islamic state) want to recreate.

Are you aware you have been brainwashed since birth? To believe in a fake fairytale storybook?

Do you realize if you were born in Antarctica you wouldn't have the same beliefs?

Do you realize that beliefs don't mean shit? It doens't matter what you beieve the planet and sun will continue to orbit each other until the sun blows up.

Have you even watched the Cosmos series? With Carl Sagan or Neil Tyson? Do you know what science is?

Do you realize all speech, every single word is created by humans in the last few thousand years? 10,000 years ago humans lived on the plains of Africa in tribes and had only rudimentary sign language. Where was your shitty religion then?

Have you even thought about any of this? Or do you just wear rags on your head and belive the bullshit because your peers do?

If every individual in a society were a perfect practitioner, then theocracies would work. However, it is impossible to ensure that all people would be perfect practitioners. There will always be individuals that do wrong onto others. Or, act in ways that are counter-culture, be it good or bad. Therefore, theocracies do not work.

I think women should be free to wear whatever they please. We should not force women to wear burkas, nor should we force women to remove their burkas. Women need to be given avenues to get help if they are in a dangerous relationship where a husband is imposing his rules on her. The state should not further punish her.

Moreover, what does banning a burkini solve? Do terrorists wear burkinis, like sexy ninjas? It's ridiculous.

I am a serious practitioner of Islam in its fundamental form. The fundamental form is not what the word has been perverted to mean. It is the root of what Islam is. Islam is the jihad of an individual against his inner self. And much more. Moreover, it is the adherence of an individual to the five pillars of Islam and the Ten Commandments as told in the Q'ran. These are useful guidelines, some that we can benefit from.

Yes I agree that comfort and escape is dangerous (yet I still enjoy a beer watching football)but u missed the point. I highly recommend u read that book or if lazy watch the 1980 British film adaptation. Alcohol is just one of these comforts, sports, TV, religion,etc they make u complacent. Religion has a similar effect minus the physical cons that come from drinking. Certain part of the mind reacts and constantly goes back to religion for that comfort and hope yet we don't classify it as addiction. I'm far sure that in the history of mankind religion has claimed far more lives than alcohol.
Yes it is better to solve problems yet it isn't always possible. Please read that book. Unlike 1984 it shows control of the masses with comfort in the means of their version of alcohol and weird religion based off Henry Ford among other things. The more content the masses r and this applies to the real world then the less danger to those who rule who want to stay in power. Some leaders choose the 1984 method.

War is not "evil". War is a dispute in a larger scale. It is a part of life to have a dispute. You cannot live life without ever being faced with adversity. That is impossible. We right now are having a very small dispute. Families have disputes, which extends to communities, neighborhoods, provinces and nations.

Now there are ways by which to act during these disputes and then how to settle these disputes.

Ignoring the facts of life does not make a suitable philosophy. You cannot ignore what exists if you wish to better your life.

I have done significant research in neuroscience.

Science known nothing about the mind. We have no answers about anything salient that makes us who we are.

For example, we don't know why, but the following has been observed. There were two groups in the study, both would be asked to do the same task with interruptions. However before the task started, one group was given a ritual they were asked to perform during the interruptions. It was shown that the group that did the ritual, had better performance, faster learning and less blood flow in the brain as shown through MRIs. Why? Science has no answers yet.

However, thousands of years ago and across every culture meditation became a part of religion. Muslim pray 5 times a day, Buddhists pray throughout the day, Christians pray before meals and sleeping. Prayer is a good part of the day. It is the Muslim synonymy to meditation in Eastern religions. Meditation and regularity in human lives brings peace to the mind. This then helps people live better lives.

I can give other examples.

Yes and no. The Roman empire was already established and in decline at the time emperor Constantine adopted it(personally) in 313AD. It became the official religion in 395AD. Again this took far longer compared to Islam. 300+ years of semi peaceful spreading of Christianity despite constant persecution just like the Jews under the Egyptians versus an empire in the tail end of a Prophet's lifetime that spread itself by the sword( exception east of Persia and south of the Sahara desert).

When you use the word "god", you are already implying some stuff, adding some baggage to the discussion.

Islam believes in God differently than most Christians. The image of God caused the perversion of the greatness that he is. God is as was told onto Moses, and which is written in the Torah, the Bible and the Q'ran. God is as he is, he is everything that is, has been and is not. Some Christians have misinterpreted this. However, it is all encompassing and should be all encompassing. A Jewish philosopher said that once you start to define God you have already placed too many boundaries onto the entirety of that which God is.

Consider this.

Set theory is useful to understand this.

First we must understand that the set, is everything that is, has been and is not. In essence the set is infinity.

S = {-inf, inf} in R^inf.

Now we can talk about subsets of what God is. However we must understand that God is much more than this subset. He is the set, S. The subset, s, is only a part of the whole.

For example, if we talk about God's generosity.

s = {generosity}

By definition, generosity is in the set, S, we have defined which the infinite set is.

Religions essence does not need to change, what should change is the way we understand it. But, that is each individuals duty. Can only control yourself.

So the meteor hits and dinosaurs are wiped out. Small rodents able to burrow underground were able to thrive in this new environment. Humans are descended from those rodents! No joke! If the meteor didn't hit dinosaurs would STILL be roaming the planet to this very day.

Just think for a minute. I know it tough because you are brainwashed but just think. If that meteor was nudged off course by just a little bit. It would have missed Earth and humans wouldn't exist. Where is your religion then?

Do you mean to tell me your religion exists solely because a meteor crashed into Earth and wiped out the dinosaurs? Do you know how stupid that sounds?

Are you beginning to understand that religion is bullshit yet? Not even just a little bit? Religion is created by HUMANS. We created it. Get it? If that meteor was nudged off course and missed the planet do you honestly think T-Rex and Stegosaurus would be wearing turbans?

us and french ideas of freedom are similar but not exactly the same, its not that hard to understand.

think about how the english and french as languages. english in the us is a descriptive language, french in france is a prescriptive language.

the french do not feel the burka in any form is compatible with what it means to be a frenchman

they view the burka as antithetical to being free and have therefore attempted to outlaw it.

I have a question, why is it that muslims are (reasonably) considered uncivilized and barbaric?
This is not a myth, when you compare islamic countries with developed world you can see the difference.

Sunni and Shi'ite disagree as to who should have been the first Caliph. That's all. All that arguing over nothing. The guys with turbans are Sikhs, not Muslims.

>>703096092
Conflicts are much more complex than that. Some people will simply disagree on a way to do things Democrat/Republican. They just have a different path for the future and as a result disagree.

Let's try to discuss ideas without you making assumptions about what I believe. I have studied neuroscience, i know what I am talking about. We do NOT understand even the basic mechanics by which neurons communicate. We do not know their encryption, the significance of their sequences. We do not know the functional connectome. We know just some basics.

I know very well we are chemical machines. What is a biological machine? That is not a thing. All of biology is chemistry. All of chemistry is physics. We are physical beings!

Read my comment carefully. Nowhere did I state that a belief in the supernatural was needed for meditation. Moreover, Islam does nto believe in a supernatural deity. Refer to: >>703097755

>>703097414
This is a very wrong understanding of God. Christian people believe this, however even the Bible says it otherwise. God is much more than a man in the sky. He is not an intelligent being high above. He is everything. Refer to: >>703097755

This is what all Jews and Muslims believe. And what Christians should believe if they would read the Bible and not just go by word of mouth.

Personally I don't like the binary, I see just a shade of grey. Used the binary as the generalization that most are comfortable with. But please notice by and large I'm using your words and poking holes.
Again you missed the point. For example why did not the populace of manji among others rise against IS? Yet the moment IS left they were celebrating. Y did they not try to better their lives by fighting back. Because it comes with risk which most people try to avoid.
Yes ignoring the facts of life isn't a good philosophy, yet it happens in the background even if you don't mean it to. We ignore the means by which some people exert influence and control. We don't do anything to regulate those who accumulate wealth and power and pull the strings of leaders in the world that are the face the public sees. We protest but nothing changes, u get a new face but the status quo remains.
End point is social controls whether it be alcohol, religion, conditioning of socially acceptable behavior, comfort, or brute force are to control the masses .

>Islam does nto believe in a supernatural deity.
are you serious?

if islam does not believe in the supernatural then everything that muslims believe is falsifiable, correct?

awesome, thanks. since there is no evidence to support any of claims made by islam it can all be safely ignored.

so you're saying god is not an intelligent being

why care about him/it then?

You are taking a very low-level approach to what religion is.

Religion wasn't fabricated out of thin air.

It is a response to what and who we are.

Think about that.

I am not from the US, and French is my first language.

Depuis quand qu'en France on peut dire a n'importe quelle individu qu'est ce qui'il devrait porter?

C'est son choix. Nul part, dans la loi ou la Charte est cela écrit. Ce n'est même pas logique comme loi. Ca s'arrête ou?

Oublie que je suis Musluman. Si comme individu libre je choisi que tout les jours je porterai une pulle. Cela est-il contre ce qui est français?

>We know just some basics.
exactly, through the tools of science we have a basic understanding of how the brain works, further study will provide better understanding.

no religious text will provide better understanding, or provide tools to help understand.

and without the supernatural religion is just a collection of stories. and no reason why the game of thrones is any more insightful then the bible or koran

Social controls what? Are you saying everything is used to control the masses? What is your point?

>>703099824
God is much more than a supernatural deity. Refer to previous posts, I have written this too many times now.

Islam, is not about believing in the supernatural. It's about understanding what is. What good would there be in believing any random story I told for instance.
>>
>>703100722
While I agree with you for quite a bit let me be the antagonist here: wasn't fire supernatural when people saw it the first time?

Your throwing in your own windows by instantly separating both.

And there are, even if less, prominent scientists who are religious. Who knows if in 2000 years we will think of A Song Of Ice And Fire as religion, but as you were not anywhere near the conception of such religious books nor the conception of the actual stories that would make an irrelevant comparison based purely on speculation too. The thing you apparently hate so much.

C'mon, if you're going to promote 'understanding' at least try. You're an embarrassment to all of us.

the role of the state is to protect the individual

the burka is a tool designed to oppress the individual

therefore the state should outlaw the burka, to protect the individual

that is the line of reasoning, if you cant understand that you are beyond help

The problem with that argument is assuming the burka is more oppressive than telling women what to wear.

Within the Roman empire it was. After its fall I completely agree anything but peaceful. As u yourself said people with evil tendencies will adopt what suits them. Both Judaism and Christianity spent their first few centuries facing prosecution before being those who dished it out and being appropriated by others for their own gain.
Islam not so much. U get an empire within 50-100 years. I do actually believe a sizeable portion of that empires population genuinely believed in it and converted. Others not so much and are given the options convert for tax purposes or death. Within a few generations people forget their forefathers were forced to convert by the sword.

Christianity has done the same but given timescale it didn't initially rely on force or intimidation, eventually it was appropriate d to serve those purposes. Muhammad was fundamental in creating his empire using his teachings in one hand and a sword in the other.

Don't you think that muslims are trying to warp islam and what is written in the Quran to make it relevant in modern life?


As a gay guy living in the UK there is nothing I fear more than islam, Just like every gay person I know, all muslims I have ever met have instantly turned against me once I tell them I am gay. One even decided to beat the shit out of me while screaming Allahu Akbar.

Here are some verses from the book you have to follow 100% Tell me whether you just ignore those parts or worse, you actually agree with them:


Quran (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"

Quran (3:56) - "As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help."

Quran (9:14) - "Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people.

Quran (25:52) - "Therefore listen not to the Unbelievers, but strive against them with the utmost strenuousness..."
