All points are generalizations only, based on the personal experiences of the author, who is not a Muslim. As with any other religious group there is a high level of variation between individuals within that group. These points should only be seen as tendencies, not as certainties. A quick look through both lists will show that most of the points do not apply to most Muslim girls. The alternative is Western girls Face covered, character exposed The quality of girls on offer in Western countries has been dropping badly in recent decades. The future is always hard to predict, but all signs suggest this trend is going to continue.
The Muslim Carpet
Dar-al-Jil, , p. Islamic leaders go to extraordinary means to hide the Gospel of Jesus from Muslims. Just as Satan wails at a crucifix at an exorcism – the Islamic cult member normally wails at the sight of the Christian Bible. A false prophet can always be recognized, because he attacks the true prophet. A false Bible can be recognized, because it contradicts the true Bible. Islam goes one step further.
The Muslim carpet has long been a luxury commodity sought by textile museums, rich collectors and wealthy merchants all over the world. The fame of the flying carpet of ‘Al’a Al-Din (Aladdin) added some emotional mystery and value to its already exceptional beauty and tangible quality.
Psalms Quran Surah 2 verse says: The Twelve Imams[ edit ] Main article: Each Imam represents a different aspect of the Universe. The Twelfth Imam is hidden and represents the Messianic Age. Plurality is the separation of pure consciousness from the divine source. The fact of plurality in nature is attributed to the infinite potential energy of Kull-i Nafs when it takes corporeal form as it descends into being from Allah.
For to love and to fall in love has been my fate from time immemorial. The perfect human being[ edit ] Main article: Although it is common to refer to Ali and Haji Bektash Veli or the other Alevi saints as manifestations of the perfect human being, the Perfect Human Being is also identified with our true identity as pure consciousness , hence the Qur’anic concept of human beings not having original sin, consciousness being pure and perfect.
The answers to these questions, instead of the opposite of what’s known by many people is that the birthplace of Alevism was never in Anatolia. This is an example of great ignorance, that is, to tell that the Alevism was emerged in Anatolia. Searching the source of Alevism in Anatolia arises from unawareness.

Each side has a long history of looking at the other’s sexual mores with a mixture of astonishment and disgust. The term termagant sums up the surprising way Westerners saw Muslim women before the seventeenth century. Here are some examples of customs and social attitudes from the Muslim side of the divide in reverse chronological order that have me, for one, shaking my head. I have made sure only to include instances in this weblog entry that represent a general outlook, and not just a single person’s idiosyncrasy, anecdotes that reflect the Shari’a or societal consensus, not deviants and outcasts.

A complaint was sent to the Ombudsman last week alleging conflicts of interest should have prevented at least two councillors from voting. Dallas Kilponen Adem Cetinay, who had organised a petition opposing the monument, has written a page complaint that highlights links between Assyrian community groups and several councillors who voted for the monument. The decision was made in breach of the relevant legislation, guidelines and policies, and it is also irrational. Andrew Rohan, who voted in favour of the monument, was president of the same body.

As Noldeke remarks, Mohammed’s acquaintance with those two dogmas was superficial; even the clauses of the Creed that referred to them were not properly known to him, and thus he felt that it was quite impossible to bring them into harmony with the simple Semitic Monotheism ; probably, too, it was this consideration alone that hindered him from embracing Christianity Sketches from Eastern History, The number of prophets sent by God is said to have been about , , and of apostles , According to the Sunni, the Prophets and Apostles were sinless and superior to the angels , and they had the power of performing miracles.
Mohammedan angelology and demonology are almost wholly based on later Jewish and early Christian traditions. The angels are believed to be free from all sin ; they neither eat nor drink; there is no distinction of sex among them. They are, as a rule, invisible, save to animals, although, at times, they appear in human form.

The consular bureau at the U. Department of State from the mid s until distributed a document titled ” Marriage to Saudis ,” offering straight-talking advice to American women contemplating tying the knot with Saudi men. As Martin Kramer describes what he calls “a minor classic by an anonymous diplomat”: It is remarkable for its undiplomatic and anecdotal tone, so distant from the department’s standard bureaucratic style.
For prospective spouses, “Marriage to Saudis” constituted an official tutorial in Saudi culture; for others, it served as a fascinating example of practical anthropology, school of hard knocks. Here is a choice excerpt:
Okay, I’ll talk more about this whole “one-night stand” issue later. For now, I want you to understand that the Muslim women in Borat’s home are not comparable to the women in Saudi Arabia.. 3.
November 11, Sex and Dating in Turkey One thing I have wanted to write about for a while in this column is the view of sex and dating in Turkey. I have watched mostly foreign and some Turkish friends grapple with dating and all its highs and—more often—lows, and have become endlessly fascinated with the subject. Although it is not something I have to partake in, it is a subject that fascinates me.
A Turkish male friend once told me that one night stands are not really a thing, and especially not for women no big surprise there. Another Turkish male friend told me that although men and women can be friends, growing up in large mixed-sex friendships groups is a lot less common than in other parts of the world. He also told me that if a girl and a boy are friends, pretty soon one of them will develop a romantic interest in the other. Religion is of course the major player of why this is the case.
Sex is seen as something that should happen between a husband and wife, and practiced according to the teachings of Islam. With a religion that severely subjugates its women comes an unfair balance between the roles that men and women play in courtship, marriage, and sex: Marital rape and domestic violence are both common practices, especially in rural areas. He justified watching and sharing the video by saying this: Then it is not private. We cannot view adulterers as victims. It could be out of either envy or obsession caused by self-suppression.

Note to readers: This weblog entry on official advice to women not to marry Muslim men has, to my surprise and delight, become the springboard for an intense, heated, and personal dialogue between non-Muslim women romantically involved with Muslim men.
Muslim scholars have called on immigrant Muslims to become involved in summoning non-Muslims to their faith. Indeed, the call on Muslim migrants to proselytize has become central in contemporary Islamic writings, not only in books, but also in sermons—many online on YouTube—and others on DVDs, and Islamic websites. The strategies that the global Islamic media uses to promote conversion of Christians to Islam illustrate both the perceptions of Islamists and can expose themes to defend and promote in cultural and public diplomacy.
Background Many convert narratives depict Islam as a remedy to the growing secularization of Western life that Christianity fails to fill. Former pop star Cat Stevens gave up a highly successful career in music and converted to Islam. He has since opened several Muslim schools in the U. The history of Muslim-Christian relations is to some extent that of two civilizations championing a universalistic message and competing for world domination. In the early phases of this struggle, as demonstrated by Bernard Lewis, Islam was more tolerant: In Muslim lands conquered by Christians, Christianity was imposed by force, and Muslims were sooner or later forced to choose between conversion, exile, and death; in Christian lands conquered by Muslims, Christians were tolerated alongside Jews as “People of the Book.
In Muslim eyes, Christianity had some truth in it; in Christian eyes, Islam was completely false. In the West, freedom of religion allows for people of all faiths to convince others that theirs is the one and only truth; on the other hand, in some Muslim societies, non-Muslims are prosecuted, and promotion of other religions is a punishable offense.

Osman I , Ottoman dynasty , and Gaza Thesis As the power of the Seljuk Sultanate of Rum declined in the 13th century, Anatolia was divided into a patchwork of independent Turkish principalities known as the Anatolian Beyliks. One of these beyliks, in the region of Bithynia on the frontier of the Byzantine Empire , was led by the Turkish tribal leader Osman d. It is not well understood how the early Ottomans came to dominate their neighbours, due to the scarcity of the sources which survive from this period.
One school of thought which was popular during the twentieth century argued that the Ottomans achieved success by rallying religious warriors to fight for them in the name of Islam. This theory, known as the Gaza Thesis , is now highly criticised and no longer generally accepted by historians, but no consensus on the nature of the early Ottoman state has yet emerged to replace it. In the century after the death of Osman I, Ottoman rule began to extend over Anatolia and the Balkans.
Osman’s son, Orhan , captured the northwestern Anatolian city of Bursa in , and made it the new capital of the Ottoman state. This conquest meant the loss of Byzantine control over northwestern Anatolia. The important city of Thessaloniki was captured from the Venetians in The Ottoman victory at Kosovo in effectively marked the end of Serbian power in the region, paving the way for Ottoman expansion into Europe. The empire had managed to control nearly all former Byzantine lands surrounding the city, but in the Byzantines were temporarily relieved when the Turco-Mongol leader Timur , founder of the Timurid Empire , invaded Anatolia from the east.
In the Battle of Ankara in , Timur defeated the Ottoman forces and took Sultan Bayezid I as a prisoner, throwing the empire into disorder. The ensuing civil war lasted from to as Bayezid’s sons fought over succession.
