ابحث عن إيمانك إذا كنت قلقا..وحينما تجد إيمانك ستجد نفسك

Search for your faith when you are experiencing doubt and anxiety, and when you find your faith, you will find yourself.
A servant cannot serve two lords, because he will unquestionably prefer one to the other although he may exert all efforts for dealing with them equally. In the same manner, you cannot love Allah and the worldly pleasures in the same time.
—  Nabi Isa ibn Maryam al-Masih (ع) Tuhaf al-‘Uqoul p. 607, h. 25
Beware of generalizations about any faith…Hinduism contained both Gandhi and the fanatic who assassinated him. The Dalai Lama today is an extraordinary humanitarian, but the fifth Dalai Lama in 1660 ordered children massacred “like eggs smashed against rocks.” Christianity encompassed the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and also the 13th century papal legate who in France ordered the massacre of 20,000 Cathar men, women and children for heresy…The Taliban gunmen who shot Malala Yousafzai for advocating for education were Muslims; so was Malala.

  • What Pope Francis actually said:The right to free speech gives us an obligation to work for the common good, so we should dialogue respectfully for that end, even if people don't want to hear it. Of course, sh*****g on things people love just because you can is going to get them mad, so if you want to be respectful, don't do that.
  • What people heard Pope Francis say:The right to free speech doesn't apply to religion! Shut down anyone who insults teh religionz!!!111!11!1!
