Hello everybody from NC usa.
(I just moved down here from MI usa)

My name is Ian and I'm not a Muslim. I'm not a Christian either.
I'm a little bit of some things and not much of others. I'm mostly atheist.

I also only speak english...for now.

This is NOT a spam account or post. Just looking to make some friends or acquaintances of the Muslim kind...a few Kind Muslims would be a bonus.
lol

I do have a motive for posting here though. I go to another chat room/forum that is full of some narrow minded "hardcore" Christians. I would LOVE someday to have some Muslim folks join us in this other forums.

Not sure if this type of post is allowed here but I will wait before posting a link to the other sight and giving anybody and everybody a proper invite.

Hope you all don't mind me posting here.
Once again my name is Ian, I am for real and thanks for allowing me to your forums. ;)

Peace be upon you...and them too.

Hi Ian, welcome to the forums!
Hope you can learn a lot about islam and its followers, hopefully we can learn from you as well.
If you want to learn more about islam, the "discover islam" section is a good way to start. http://www.islamicboard.com/discover-islam/
If you have absolutely no clue what islam is about, you could also check out this site, which talks briefly about the very basics of islam. http://www.islam101.com/dawah/IslamBrief.html

If you have any questions, ask away!
Enjoy your time. :)

Thanks for the welcome everybody.

Now for the reason I am here...I alluded to it before in my first post.
I frequently go to a small town Newspaper chat room/forums (much like this place is laid out). It's located in Holland MI.

We have lots of fun and sometimes heated discussions and like many other online forums sometimes people just bash each other over the heads with words...so to speak.

Like I said before I'm mostly atheist...I believe in nothing...sort of.
No God No Allah Not much I cant see...But I do believe in some things I cant see or explain...but anyways.

The reason I came and joined this forum is to invite some of you...ANY of you to come join us at that other forum. The place is called Holland Sentinel Forums and the biggest and best reason I want...I NEED somebody...ANYBODY that is Muslim to come join us.

I have to warn you that MANY of the people in this forum are "Christians" Christian with the quotes " " because SO MANY of them are NOT anything like Jesus. They seem so closed minded, so greedy, so nearly hateful...so unloving and unforgiving. As you might guess many of them are VERY vocal about their dislike of Islam. I think many of them don't know the first thing about Islam (much like I do I imagine...I have much to learn about "true" Islam...I would like to learn).

Please please please would some of you come join this forum and be a part of our "community"? Many other people there have expressed an interest if some Muslim folks would come join us.

I must WARN YOU...some of these folks are and can be COMPLETE JERKS (me sometimes too) and if you say proudly that you are Muslim who knows what may happen (in words I mean).

Also....many people at this forum are GOOD and decent people. Many folks would welcome and would LOVE to hear...REALLY hear what you have to say. Especially me.

Moderators....this is NOT a spam post. I'm NOT fishing for more "customers" at this other forum. I get paid NOTHING. I truly want to have some people join us. Muslim people...good people...bad people...english speakers or not english speakers. Just would love to have people join us.

Thanks again for the welcome to your forum and I hope some of you can come look, and maybe join us at ours...

Here is a link...
http://forums.hollandsentinel.com/

btw...today my ID at this forum is Obamatardian
I change ID's often ;)
I picked Obamatardian because I am SO HAPPY to be rid of GW Bush.
I like Mr. Obama...some people call me/us Obamatards (a mix of retards and Obama) so I took that bad name and made it my own...good name.
I'm proud again...proud of my President...for now.

see you there?
I'll put out the welcome wagon for you.


Peace be upon you...and them too ;)
Ian

Interesting, welcome to the forum =)

As you might guess many of them are VERY vocal about their dislike of Islam. I think many of them don't know the first thing about Islam (much like I do I imagine...I have much to learn about "true" Islam...I would like to learn).
I suggest...and this is just my little insignificant suggestion btw, but I suggest you stick around here for several weeks, learn a little more about Islam and then maybe go back to your people on the other forum and invite them here. From there they can educate themselves about Islam also. Simple no?

You're not wrong there. Been browsing a little and have read the most absurd comments.... :rollseyes seriously these people need to get out of their slums and meet real muslims, in real life. Why dont they try interacting with them a little? [And whoever in the past guffawed at the idea of the host integrating with the guest needs his head shoved down the dunny]

So yeh...I wouldnt recommend your forum to any of the muslims on this board, sorry but thats my 2 cents.

I'm a bit confused. The "administration" folks don't really post that much at the Holland Forums. They do watch over us and they will poke in once in a while to remove posts or "spank some bottoms" when the time comes that it needs to be done.

Thanks for taking a look and posting your cents worth Amatul. :)
Ian

btw...ya saw what some idiots they can be? lol
ALL the MORE reason we need some new guests/members.

I think she's talking about hosts (as in the US, UK, west in general) integrating and mingling with the guests (immigrants, be they muslim, or just arab, asian, etc.)

As for the site.. I've seen much worse. The internet is a favorite place for loudmouth ignorant people. Those forums don't seem too imbalanced though, you've got your haters, but also some people to set them straight.
I shall check it out, maybe join, if I find some time inshallah.:)

http://forums.hollandsentinel.com/in...cseen#msg33150

Ohhhh those hosts...US?
I get it now...I think.

Hosts? seems like many of US here in the usa don't know the meaning of the word host...lol

I'm a little different then some. I was lucky enough to grow up with two teachers as parents. Dad was a professor and traveled the world with his students. I got the great benefit of seeing many different cultures and people.
Hope to see and meet many more before my "time is up"

Thanks for clearing that up crayon...I love crayons...so many colors.
Do hope to see you there if you wish.
Take care...Ian

WARNING WARNING!!!

The "yankees" are coming!!!

Those Holland folks found this post and this IslamicBoard forum.
I have a feeling some of them will also "join" you all here.
If they are anything like they are at the other forum this may not be good.

If they start disrespecting ANYBODY here I truly apologize.
If you need to find them and BAN them...do so.
ban me too if you have to...it's OK.

I wish you all the best and still extend that invite.
If I brought any "bad" to this forum I am truly sorry.

tell me about it sis! :exhausted right now im on the forum :blind:. seriously these people are so narrow-minded and ignorant! let me tell you something they have absolutely no idea what Islam is! at least if they want to attack it they need proves for their claims! that SilentRunner person and other members similare to him seriously need to find more about what islam is about from authentic sources
not sure if i want to join- will think about it :thumbs_up
Edit: however i read few posts that are less biased and few members seems nice

You got that right Ar-Rayyan...some good folks and some jerk folks.
I'm a bit of both...with them...at times.

Just out of curiosity...
From your ID I'm guessing you may be Persian.
Are you in or from Iran?
I knew the greatest girl in Iran...her name was Azadeh.
She found her freedom finally...I think she is in Spain now.
Be well Azadeh...Love Ian.

Yup...authentic sources.
I/we sure could use some.
Hope to see you there.

okie dokie....

I started the ball rolling (actually the ball started yesterday) over at the Holland Sentinel Forums with this new topic I just started a few moments ago...(questions I would ask a Muslim...)


Originally Posted by 100th-Member

before I ask...
These questions are just the start from me...
I'm a western guy with very little knowledge of true Islam besides some information I may see/find in our media.
(much of it BS I imagine)
I'm also open-minded, atheist (can you be open AND atheist ? lol), curious and sincere.

Why has Islam had such a "bad reputation" in the last 50 80 100yrs?

Do you think that "modern" Islam has changed for SOME people in the last century or so?

Become more "politicized" in a way...for SOME people?

Why?
btw...
I am 100th Member (but it's a secret...sort of) at HSF.
don't tell um please ;)

Wanna watch as the jerks come to feed on me and my/our new topic?
Here is the link....
http://forums.hollandsentinel.com/in...p?topic=1650.0

I'm willing to bet $1000 (is betting allowed in Islam?) that MANY people at the HSF (many "Christian" people) will give me/us their two cents worth on the above questions...and they will, once again, prove their total ignorance on Islam.

I look forward to hearing/seeing some knowledgeable opinions from somebody that KNOWS. Here or there.

Ya'll have a great day/night...
peace...Ian

Welcome Ian.

I don't think betting is allowed because it sort of a form of gambling and that is haram as far as I know.

Thanks and hello PK Donia and Saya
and thanks for the word info on the fasting and ID meaning Ar-RaYYan
and nope...I wont gamble or make any bets here. ;)
and yes Saya it can be a very "dirty" place.
dirty as in people with bad thoughts, big mouths hard heads and even some downright hate.

Such is life....sometimes.

one thing I wish...
that our western world would outlaw "banks"...sort of.
outlaw the charging of interest...is that an Islamic law?...sort of?
banks can be EVIL!!

It was the ID...Ar-Rayyan that led me to ask that question Umm ul-Shaheed.
It looked to me (because I pretty much only know English) like it was a variation
of the word Aryan. After thinking that I asked.
I was wrong.

Good morning SAYA...and EVERYBODY.
Sorry that that page is not opening for you. I think it might be just like you say...a sign. I wish it was not.

Would still LOVE to have any of you folks come and join. If even only for a day or so.

One more thing...if/when anybody from your site or your faith comes to the Holland Sentinel Forums (here is the link again...http://forums.hollandsentinel.com/) you will NOT be alone. For what it is worth I WILL be there with you...as your friend. Also other "good people" there are your potential friends.

You all have WONDERFUL days...
