Care to join? I wonder what's up with the habbot? Is that what it's called? Ya know, the scarf around the head and face.

Is that called a berka or something like that? Probably haven't spelled it right though.

I think it is not really in the writings of the islam that people should cover their heads, and especially women keep their hair covered. I think the writings just say that you should dress decently, and its only a tradition, older muslim men wear a cap, too. Muslim women here in Austria wear all kinds of headdresses, mostly headscarfs. We see very few burkas here. But then, my Grandma also always covered her hair when she went out (and she was no muslim). A headscarf for the garden or the market, a hat for visiting friends, or shopping in the city it was.

Upps, the English word seems to be burqa, not burka.

for an example see http://www.cartoonstock.com/di...../burqa.asp

I saw the thread title and thought: "Heck, who could that be?" And then I saw free, lol!

free, you are a riot!

Actually, according to Islam women suppose to cover their hair and dress modestly, and so should men. Not the neck covering necessary, burka is definitively not required, but no cleavage showing. Loose cloths, long sleeves, all buttoned-up to the neck and THE SAME goes for men.

How does it work? Well not once I saw a couple where a woman is covered from head to toe, only eyes are visible and has nothing on his head, wearing blue jeans and shirt unbuttoned almost all the way to the waist. Go figure.

lol.

I do wonder about the whole covering up thing though and what that is all about, thanks for the links eve. Isis and Matteo, I'm glad you got a laugh-

guest- if you're reading don't be allticked at my manipulative ploy- you're missed and a post would be cool.

TRIGGER warning-

if guest shows up this could get really, really heated, as in flames flying out your computer vent. Especially if wd shows up as well.

I'm surprised he hasn't popped in already.

Sallam, sister.

Surely by submitting yourself to the One True God, and seeking only to please him, you shall find peace.

I think you might have a bit of trouble with the submitting part. And the modesty part. And the refraining from imbibing of toxicants like alcohol, tobacco, hashish, and pornography of course.

But miracles do happen, Inshallah.

On the 9-Oct-07 you wrote:

You want me to partake in the trivializing and ridiculing the Islamic religion, albeit done with tongue-in-cheek?

No, even though I'm not a Christian and proud of it, that wouldn't be at all Christian of me to do that.

I have a too much respect for the Sufi branch of Islam.

Tez et al.

I have a question - Tez says "No, even though I'm not a Christian and proud of it, that wouldn't be at all Christian of me to do that.

I have a too much respect for the Sufi branch of Islam."

While not Christian, it is polite- to do otherwise would be bashing?

Hi matteo~ what language are you speaking? I'm assuming it means hello? My computer is doing great todaY I'm abstaining.

wd~ yes it has been a long time. I asked my husband what modest means and he laughed. He was busy at the moment I think. Is this your way of telling me I cannot flirtist with thouest anymore? Too bad. You sexy devil you. Am I supposed to stop that if I'm gonna convert?

hmmmm...might have to rethingk.....

Tez~ are you grumpy today or what? You never seem to have a problem disrespecting religions. Are you a raghead? I thought you were Buddhist. I don't know what sushi Islam is- will go check it out. Glad you are here. You're glad I'm here too you just don't want to admit it.

aaa! sufi branch of islam is the mystics......raghead gnostics...

Tez-
I know you have a fair respect for the Christian gnostics- at one time there was discussion aout the gospel of Thomas......

What I'm not understanding is why you would respect the Christian gnostics yet rip apart all other branches of Christianity- and at the same time be insulted by tongue in cheek talk of Islam due to that religion's mystics...

that's not very logical.

Back to the converting thing.

What is it one would have to do I wonder?

I already gave up porn. flirting with wd will have to be last. Intoxicating substances second to last. sex?

am I gonna have to give up sex?

Oh, Allah.

Being of northen european decent there is a tradition of Naturists who like to run around naked , the excessive use of saunas, and jumping in frozen ponds.......In that land there wasn't shame or the risk of bing stoned to death for public nudity, working on Sunday, or entering marriage without your virginity intact.

I guess all the covering up helps when you get flogged with rocks for doing what is human and brings you joy. The clothes also protect from sand storms and extreme sun exposure...not a problem up north. But it does get cold.

It's just nice to keep clothes in perspective with environmental factors, fashion and adornment.

Forget Allah. Methinks he prefers virgins and little boys.(most likely from praying 7 times a day , bent over on yer knees in the sole presence of men. On some damn nice woven tribal rugs too! It's gotta affect ya somehow!)

"Conversion to Islam is relatively simple, involving only Shahada, the declaration of Faith: There is no God except Allah; Muhammad is Allah's Final Messenger. People find it much easier than a lengthy process of religious education and series of formal rituals."

So- wd- I'm done!

I'm an Islamat.
