churches of the future [Mar. 29th, 2010|05:51 pm]
Jews, Christians, and Muslims

can you imagine our churches looking like this?
well a few cities here in the US are designing futuristic churches like this, one in los angeles and one in Boston, wondering what you guys think of this, is it something we need, or is this going overboard?

an amazing book i need to recommend - Ace of Spades by David Matthews [Apr. 12th, 2009|06:44 pm]
Jews, Christians, and Muslims

movehalfaninch
this is my first posting. hello! my name is sarah, and i'm half black half jewish. my mother is jewish.

A friend of mine recommended a book called 'Ace of Spades' by David Matthews (you can find it here: http://tr.im/iGsu), and I love it so much. I'm half way through it and I can't believe how great this book is. It's so funny and personable. There are moments where I have to put the book down and just burst out laughing. But wow, is it well written! David Matthews is poetic with his words. Truly astounding.

Here's a brief description from The New Yorker:
The son of a Zionist white mother and a Malcolm X-admiring black father, Matthews, in this memoir, is a boy without a race in a city, Baltimore, that requires him to choose one. The story of racial pinball is not entirely unfamiliar: the black kids reject him as too light-skinned, the whites as too broad-nosed. But Matthews displays improvisational verve—blacks are "burnished" and "browned butter," and whites are anything from "alabaster" to "a puffy marshmallow in Baltimore’s steaming cup of cocoa"—and narrates with the vigor of a movie script. Indeed, it is on television that, as a child, he finds the clarity he yearns for. "I was a living contradiction of elements that shouldn’t have been," he writes at one point, whereas on TV "everything was black, or white, and a lot like life."

Really, i can't recommend this book more! I love it! Have you read it?


here's the author, david matthews:

Talking with many muslims always say that the Jewish Scripts(Bible) are corrupted.
Reading the Quran I've notice the opposite!!!The Quran Confirms the Jewish Scripts!!!

Young, Hip, and Muslim? [Aug. 22nd, 2006|12:11 am]

Salaam Aleykoom!

I'm a young American Muslim who is sick and tired of only hearing about Islam in headlines. So I've started a new line of clothing and gifts that is geared towards young, modern Muslims who are ready to make their own headlines. Some political, some funny, some religious, and lots of ARABIC! So check it out, please spread the word if you dig it, and check in periodically for new designs.

And if you like it, WEAR IT WITH PRIDE!

Shukran!!

Hi, I hope this community is still active because I just found it recently. I think i looked up the interest 'quran' and stumbled upon it. For awhile I've been looking for a monotheist community that welcomes all believers who worship God alone. I follow the religion of Abraham which is monotheism but I read the Quran and call myself a 'submitter.' I think it's very important to worship God alone and I think that this is the best community I've found so far that does not create any bias or division in religions. I do not count myself among the majority of muslims for specific reasons, as there are unfortunately many divisions in this religion and God says in the Quran that we should not divide ourselves into sects. Some call themselves Sunni and some call themselves Shia and there are others that I don't even know about but I only call myself a submitter. I do not follow Hadith as it was fabricated by man and I believe it to be false. The Quran also confirms the previous scriptures such as the Psalms, and Torah (old testament), and the Quran is God's final message to humanity. I think one of the most important things in the Quran that I feel is very relevant to this community is the following verse:

"Surely, those who believe, those who are Jewish, the Christians, the converts; anyone who
(1)believes in God and
(2)believes in the Hereafter, and
(3)leads a righteous life,
will receive their recompense from their Lord;
they have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve."
[5:69, 2:62]

These are the minimum requirements for salvation although there are many additional ways for us to work righteousness and develop our souls to make it in the hereafter, God willing.

Peace be upon you :)
