"Your wearing too many clothes...." says the person wearing short shorts :/

It was about 25 degrees today in london and when I was with a group of people I complained that it was too hot (I actually was referring to the heat from the sun beating down on my face), and then someone said "Your wearing too many clothes! your making me feel hot just looking at you"..... LOOOOOOOOOL if thats the case how do people in KSA cope when its like 50 degrees and they still manage to remain fully covered!?!? (I was wearing jeans, a tee, a cardigan ans a chiffon Hijab complete with dollies) and to highlight another point I feel traumatized from seeing people wear short shorts when they have NOT got the figure for it.Please show a little mercy to the general public. (I know I sound mean but you know)

Shi'a/Sunni/ Sects in general Debate

I dislike the fact that muslims fight each other. In my opinion the fact that  there are numerous divisions and sects and islam is the reason why the kilafat has failed to be reformed and thus why there is little unity among the muslim world. If someone asks me what religion are you I say "Muslim", if they ask what type of 'sect' I say I'm just muslim. Is there a problem with that? I won't say or hint what 'sect' i am classified under just to leave out all the fuss. We all believe 'la illaha illa Allah Muhammad rasul Allah' and submit to the will of Allah.

What if....

What if there was something that you really wanted, and you continued to chase it even though the odds were against you and no one's was on your side; and No matter how hard you tried something always came and wrecked everything and people just wouldn't let you be and it's starting to seem that they just might be only wanting to do what's best for you...is it worth still chasing it? what would you do?

Inspired By Mohammed

Inspired by Mohammed is a campaign, the Exploring Islam Foundation is Behind it; On their website it said  "The Exploring Islam Foundation (EIF) specialises in authoring, publishing and marketing high quality resources which creatively explore the numerous aspects of Islam. EIF was established fulfil the following aims:
  • Challenge misconceptions surrounding Islam and Muslims
  • Raise awareness about the belief, practice, history, and cultures of Islam
  • Collaborate with organisations on humanitarian issues
  • Highlight the contribution of Muslims to society
Our vision is of establishing a Foundation that challenges the damaging stereotypes about Islam through the medium of creative resources."  & "The Inspired by Muhammad campaign is designed to improve the public understanding of Islam and Muslims. It showcases Britons demonstrating how Muhammad inspires them to contribute to society, with a focus on women’s rights, social justice and the environment. The campaign coincides with a national polls conducted by YouGov which shows that the 69% of people believe that Islam encourages the oppression of women, that just 6% of people associate Islam with justice and that just 6% believe that Islam promotes active measures to protect the environment. Overall, nearly half of all people in the UK believe that Islam does not have a positive impact on British society."
There are posters at tube stations, on taxicabs, bus stops and all over really. I personally think that the campaign is needed and will combat the negative stereotypes of the beautiful religion that is Islam.
