Insecure? Seriously, it states a lot when women have to conceal themselves completely, public stonings for adultery, rioting over their stupid little prophet being drawn in a cartoon, getting mad over absolutely everything? What is it with the over-sensitivity? Sex with different partners in life is a good and healthy thing, being open with your sexuality makes people more calm and healthy. All because some pedophile, warlord, evil bastard started a retarded religion all his followers take his bull **** philosophies too. Grow up followers of Islam.

Those seem to be very common misconceptions and stereotypical views of Muslims.

Perhaps you could begin by starting with a single belief you have about Islam and why you believe it is true?

Perhaps we can start with the first sentence:

Seriously, it states a lot when women have to conceal themselves completely.

First a test:

Here are 2 pictures one is Christian women and one is Muslim women which is which.

Picture A




Picture B

Bad example.

muslim women conceal themselves because muhammed made a statement saying so.

And nuns wear that stuff when working, yes, you may see one at the beach in a bikini.

Gotta love those stereotypes. I look like the woman in the far right of picture A. I am not religious at all, but I wear salwar kameez (typical Pakistani garb for women) when I go to Indian pujas to show repect to my father's Hindu religion. I'm not even full Indian, either.

This reads like a Muslim bashing thread. Does OP know any Muslims? Probably not. But I do, and they are really nice people. We have different views on religion. I have none. They have some. But, since OP has different religious views (presumably Christianity), they are automatically the "right ones."

The command for covering is from the Qur'an. It does not require the Burqa, Hijab and Niqaab that are common in the Arabian Nations. Which is actually the best choice for a desert region prone to unexpected sand storms.

When I was in the Sahara I very soon chose to dress as the Berbers and Tauregs. Took only one sandstorm to convince me.

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

It is explained HERE

Say to the believing men (first) that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty: that will make for greater purity for them: And Allah is well acquainted with all that they do.And (then) say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms (24:30-3

It is also mentioned over a dozen times in the Hadieth.

If I am not mistaken, right there is a command in the bible for women to cover their hair? So its an order from god. Please correct me if I am wrong

I believe there is a Jewish command, however the jews have long since evolved.

The OT is Jewish, and the NT changes it.
All religions do that when they steal a God from another.

Islam did the same thing.

All religions have their own particular costumes, I am not sure where the catholics came up with that one, but I am pretty sure it can be looked up.
