The Islamic Dress code for men and women is not as strict as some people assume

It is explained HERE
They don't wear the Berka to dodge sand storms they wear them to dodge the religious police they beat them with night sticks if caught without the veil
And the reason we can have this conversation without a late night knock on my door is we are in a Christian nation

The Buqa is ancient in the desert regions predating even Christianity.

About the only Muslim areas you will find Religious Police are parts of Saudi, Iran and the ACEH region of Indonesia.

I believe you will find the predominate attitude among Muslims is that it is desired people be covered, but no human has the right to force them. One must do so of their own free will and with the desire of obeying Allaah(swt)

LOLOL
And what claim did I make
and yes, the Qur'an is in Clasical Arabic, not the same as Arabic.
But from what I have seen of your knowledge of Islam, you really need to start at square one.

My only response here could be misconstrued as a personal attack, so I won't bother.

But you really do need to pull your head from the sand though.

What does lolol means? Does it mean lol?
Why don't you go back to that thread and continue about the Quran instead of mixing topics?
Don't worry about the personal attack, I don't take offence from a "no body"

I will read the link you posted tomorrow
