How do we tell the real Muslims from the role players? What does this religion have to offer to people living in the 21st century? I am not singling out Islam, because I ask the same question to Jews and Christians. What do any of the Abrahamic religions have to offer the modern world?

okay sorry I lost my control.

It's not fair to judge all of Muslims by these...

Well, I agree with you on some points. These religions need an update. In Islam, each person has to choose another person and follow his rules (There are some hard "Condition" for this second person...) and his job is to research for new things and put them in Islam.

As an example, when washing machine was invented, Muslims in my country wasn't sure if they could use it to clean najis things. So these people researched ans declared that using this washing machine is allowed.

you know what I mean?

As Jedi we should defer from Judgement and seek to understand in and around these faiths... I for one am glad to see someone willing to lend their knowledge for what the religion is and standards of practice... As with anything in this world today, extremes come from that, that is shown in and at its dark moments. It sells news and stirs up emotions.

I for one, would like to see more of the history of Islamic faith and not judge its differences as how we have come to hear it... Lets start with Basics and History Please... Sajjad Heydari, I ask for your assistance in this to further everyone who wishes to hear not just the darkness of islam, but of its beginings.

Faith is a journey, not a guilt trip...

Quiet your emotions to find inner peace. Learn from ignorance to foster knowledge.
Enjoy your passions but be immersed in serenity. Understand the chaos to see the harmony.

When I posted that video I expected an excited reaction. Obviously this does not portray the whole of Islam even though for the persons involved the facts speak for themselves, but what would interest me is: what is going wrong here? where do these radical ideas come from (where are they based in the Coran?)? how does the rest of Islam differentiate themselves from this?

Another question has also been going through my mind which you may be able to help me on: do the Saudi Sheikhs answer to Islamic laws, morals and the Coran as do all Moslems or are they exempt? If so why and how?

It is not coran, it's Quran.

Islam has lots of sects, which mainly are "Shia" and "Sunni", and each have their own separated sects...

Once Mohammad-The prophet- said "Later my followers will be in 72 different idea, each claiming to be the right one"

I don't know much about Saudi. But in my country shaikhs have to respond to law just as anyone else.

(Again sorry for the reaction)

Forgive any inaccuracies on my part, no disrespect ment, but here in Germany Muslims refer to it as the Koran as well as the Qur'an. The scriptures by Islamic centres and distributed among native Germans is titled "The Koran".

Thank you for the infos, although I was hoping for something more in depth as I am not well informed but am interested.

It's called coran as well in french

Convictions are more dangerous foes of truth than lies.

Every one has their belief and everyone is entitled to have their belief...

My opinion and my belief is my and I don't take much heed in what others think of it.

Sajjad, if you love and believe deeply in your faith then be happy with how you precieve your belief and not worry how others look at your faith.

I will shout from the roof tops about my belief in the Jedi path, I'm not sure how many here would even admit in the real world they they are Jedi, but I dearly hope all would...

But hey what do I know I'm just THE OLD DORIS...

@Jon : I will explain more but I wasn't sure about something, so I just sent a request to my "Master"-it's not the way it is in Jediism I explained this one before- when he reply I will explain here more.

@Ren : Thanks and sorry, I've never read anything refer to Islam on any language but Persian or Arabic, That's why I don't know a lot about these words...

@The Old Doris : Be sure I would shout that " I am a Muslim Jedi" and I'm not scared of what others look at it, but I want to make them to see what it DO exist, not what they pretend to show.

I'll be the first one to ask this. Would you say that Muslim and Jedi are completely compatible? If not what compromises do you make? If they are completely compatible what forms your belief on this?

Also, when there are conflicts within those structures are you a Muslim first or a Jedi first?

If you don't believe this has any relevance in the real world I'll go grab someone who is a Jedi Christian second and she can relate a story to you with the reasoning she had and choices she made.
