Don't you worry about my ego, Gibbs.  If your definition is accurate and you keep the rhetoric to a minimum I won't have to disagree with you.  The definition I had issues with in this thread was the Imam's definition of terrorism.

Assalamu Alaikum,
 

It is sad indeed. There are many things that can be done:

  • Try to memorize the Qur’an as much as possible.
  • Understand the Qur’an and Islam much more. Practice it and share it with others – Muslims and non-Muslims.
  • Distribute the copies of the Qur’an as much as you can with some guidelines how to study it. Also, leave a contact number in case someone has any query.
  • Pray to Allah to guide the mankind.
  • Encourage others to do the same.

The Qur’an is the book of Allah. He has protected it from corruption and destruction for more than 1400 years. He would do it in the future as well. Allah says in the Qur’an:

“We have, without doubt, sent down the Message; and We will assuredly guard it (from corruption).”

Qur’an 15:9

May Allah guide us all.

Peace

Then which of the favours of your Lord will ye deny?
Qur'an 55:13

   "Do we hear of any Muslim threatening to burn the Bible?"

   Who would care? If someone wants to burn a Bible or the Qur'an or any other Holy Scripture of any religion what does it matter? It reflects badly on the person doing the burning but it doesn't change anything about the personal beliefs of Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, etc. It's like burning the American flag, in a way. The flag of the United States of America symbolizes the freedom of Americans to burn it if that's what they want to do. What does that have to do with the country or the people of the United States? Nothing.

   I served in the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Army, California National Guard and have three Honorable Discharges. You would think someone like me would be angry with anyone who would burn the flag of my country, but it is just the opposite. I served in the Armed Forces of the United States to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. And it is the same U.S. Constitution that protects the rights of any American, or anyone in that case, who wants to burn the American flag or anything else in protest.

Sorry i can not go long with burning any book .  I am really considering becoming a muslim and praying daily that Allah will steer my heart.  But if not ,burning sacred books is one of the most ignorant things a human can do.  I do not agree with alot of right wing authors but will never say to burn their books.  If you want to see a good movie on this watch " Inherit the wind " with Spencer Tracy. There is a seen when he says something to the effect that when following ignorance  "we march with banners flying into the past of witch trial, reformation ect."  I am giving you the short version !LOL  Anyway thanks for letting me express my 2 cents and may God bless all,  Taoist
