Hi everyone,

I understand that it can be frustrating for it to take a day or sometimes a few days for a post to show up, but I want to state that I have been on many forums, and Islamicity is one of my favourite.

As a Christian, I have posted on some Muslim forums where I have been personally attacked and my beliefs have been mocked. This has not happened here.

I admit that in the InterFaith section, at times discussions have gotten heated and I have been exposed to... and responded with... sometimes with sarcasm. My fellow Muslim debaters and I have critiqued, and sometimes intensely, each others' beliefs and sometimes approaches to debate. However, I have not once experienced any personal attacks or insults.

My posts have all been published, even if some took longer than others... without a hint or editing or censorship.


I have been on Christian forums where Muslims were treated like garbage, and on Muslim forums where Christians were treated like garbage. It is rare to find a Christian or Muslim forum where differing beliefs are not only respected, but are also allowed to be expressed.

I know one Christian forum like this, ChristianForums, which I also regard highly for these same reasons.

 I have been on at least 5 different both Muslim and Christian forums where I have not seen the respect and freedom of expression that IC expresses.


I hope the posters on here realize this.

I would like to thank Islamicity for this forum, and the forum administrators.


Allahma3k.

Islamicity does indeed belong to the good religious websites! There are a lot of mature people here fully capable of handling disagreements and criticism.

Thank you for this post TG,

This is not just a return of formality, but sincere mention that you are one of very few Christians I have met on IC who has done his research on Islam - who does not echo just a seterotype, distorted view regarding Islam - which earns my respect.

peace,

Salaam Alaikum, Nausheen.

Thank you for the kind words. I try to do as much research as I can before making claims about what others believe, although there is much about Islam I do not know and I am not finished with the Quran yet.

Thank you for your courtesy and politeness on this forum towards me.

Peace in Christ,
