What you do need to understand is there is a vast difference in Muslim women in the United States and Canada in comparison to Afghanistan.

The muslim women I know are strong, opinionated and live their lives the way they choose to. They have careers, families and are not downtrodden.

i agree,, but canada and the usa are not governed by sharia.. i can assure you that if a day in the future comes that sharia is the world governing rule women will not be equal to men.!! one only needs to look at the middle eastern countries to see the truth. most woman in the middle eastern countries would be afraid to voice there opinions fearing retribution..

Even in Canada women who live in Muslim enclaves are not equal to men...There also Islamic enclaves in the US, and they do live under sharia.

Yes Allah teaches domance and intolerance of non-believers. If you are without any faith your an infidel and not worthy. How sad so many I think are brainwashed into believing in this religion whom they call reverts. Sadly my husband is one of them.

So my question is: Can a Muslim return the sentiment? Can they see me as a different but equal human being or am I always a infidel and/or barbarian because I don't believe as they do?
I am a Muslim. No matter, you are free to be what you want but I think you yourself are uneasy about what you want to be ....

I'm happy with being an almost-atheist agnostic. I was back then too.

THats the original script, it says, a dog was nearly dying of thirst. and a jewish prostitue poured him water, and god forgives here, means she is going to heaven even though she is a Jewish not a Muslim

so to answer your question, yes you are equal, and basically if you are lucky, even as an atheist, if you did something as good as this, god might actually forgive you regardless of your religion

And another hadith, that a woman went to hell for simply locking a cat up in a room without any food till the cat dies, she went to hell just for making the cat starve to death

does it say how long the woman fryed in hell for starving the cat? if it was for eternity?? well i guess that god is very cruel
