 Yes, the matter should have a starter. What Zakariya means is not well understood. Does Zakariya have some problems and issues to settle or is Zakariyah waiting for some one to present their problems here on the board and then Z will solve the problems.

 There is no harm. It is necessary to discuss. But remember that every one will give a different opinion. So be ready to face the varying views. Thanks.

I have noticed that people, mainly non-muslims but also some muslims themselves, seeking to understanding Islam face problems such as not undestanding their shared background with their fellows say westners which results/leads into answering their questions in way that is not helpful....

I htink that can be partly explained by the fact that some Muslims want to inform others about others but without knowldge, without effort of seeking knowldge and that is dangereus and not a good thing to do wa assalam

PLEASE THIS FORUM IS OPEN TO MUSLIMS AND NON-MUSLIMS ALIKE WITH THE PERMISSION OF THE MODERATOR(S) OF COURSE.

I think it's important that people who are not muslim know enough about
Islam to not offend or be offended. During Ramadan I don't BBQ outside
My muslim friends know to ask if the meal to which they have been
invited is milk or meat and my christian friends know enough to not even
try to bring the appropriate food and to just bring flowers for my wife.

Last night found my wife and I pot lucking a thanks giving dinner in Tel
Aviv The Palestinians brought a dairy knafeh to a meat meal.
The jewish host poured out wine in front of the Muslims for the blessings
The christian UN women are the only ones who didn't screw up but we all
had a great time despite our well meaning ignorance. None of the
Muslims touched the pricey wine and my daughter slapped my hand away
from a peice of that fried sweetened goat cheese thing y'all
invented to foil my diet plans.
