    TTI is getting boring

    What do Muslims believe about Isa being...

    I am familiar with the ossuaries you are talking about. I believe even in that film it is mentioned that the names Yeshua, Yousef, and Miriam were (and still are) very common. Fact is, they could be for any Josh, Joe, or Mary who lived during that era. There are historical and cultural...

    Why should we experience pain?!

    Assalamu alaikum, I recognize the great thoughts that went into this post. However, I am inclined to ask if this is . A cursory look at this belief system quickly turns up the "First Noble Truth" which states that life is pain. As mu'umin, we really shouldn't ask why we...

    Help with voting

    OMG! I'm a Republican! I like to quote Churchill alot. One time he said "If you are not liberal at 20, you have no heart. If you are not conservative at 40, you have no brain." I guess I am closer to 40 than 20....

    Just looking

    Hi! I wasn't born a muslim. I became convinced that Jesus (peace be upon him) wasn't the Almighty myself. Well, I'm not Jewish, so that only left me one place to search for God! You've started at the right place. Believe me, many times many of the people on this forum are converts. Any...

    Dream of disaster

    This is not the kind of advice that I would seek in this kind of forum. Dream interpretation is a subjective task. You should talk to a muslim who has this kind of knowledge. They should also, inshallah, be known well to you. I would suggest visiting a sheik or alim for a good answer.

The propaganda of the Japanese government at the time was that the americans would rape the women and then kill all the adults and probably send the children to slave labor...
