:salam2: I never said it was UN-Islamic...like I have the right to make THAT call...Its more a matter of dignity and grace. I don't change to please other people. I just feel that since this is not a private conversation between two Brothers but also is within the "hearing" range of sisters as well, that all of our tongues need to be reigned in. I'm almost certain that speaking in a manner that imitates the kaafirs while in a mosque isn't tolerated, so why should it be here. I've already asked Moderator Al-Kashmiri about it and since there is no rule against it, there is nothing that can be done, but my personal opinion is that we are all FAR better than that. I curb my tongue out of respect....that is all.
