Assalaam walaikum, The essence of this thread is to have exact definition of compassion. Do we not learn that misguided compassion leads to ignorance and greater evil. Why would you sit in the company of Jews when you can sit in the company of Believers? Is that not better? You get more rewards don't you? There is that line you have to draw..yes, you can befriend a Jew..but you can not be intimate with him. He is not your brother. Am I wrong. Yes, there are good Jews, Christians, etc. etc. but they are not Believers. If they were Believers, the Jew, would not be the Chosen One. As a female it is very difficult to make friends with non-Muslim women. I have written much on this. I am no one to speak on behalf of the Syrian people. Why do I keep reading the word democracy. Why are arms from kufr countries being shipped to the rebels. Why are banners on all magazines showing us the pride of the Syrian people. Why not the same for the people of Sudan. I have been waiting? Where are the pleas to help. Anyhow, I bid everyone a good day.
