    Question "muslim country and not islamic country"

    Report bad ads?

    That discriptive term was used on a different thread.

    I have always thought Islam and Muslim described the same thing.

    Is there a difference and if so, what are the differences?

    Thanks
    Nimrod

    Re: "muslim country and not islamic country"

    lol thats funny, becuz

    ISLAM is our religion, so therefore we are MU islams = MUslims

    like in english, if you talk, your a talker, walk = walker.....

    in arabic its a prefix so its a MU islam, MU salah: (salah means prayer)

    so a MU islam or a MUSLIM is one who submits to GOD...

    MU salah , (since salah means prayer) ...is one who prays

    I think in the context of this thread, a "Muslim country" is one that is full of Muslims. Malaysia is a Muslim country because the majority of the population are Muslims. It is not an Islamic country, in the eyes of many people, because Sharia is not enforced as some Muslims would like. An Islamic country refers to the ideal - which does not exist and probably has not since the 7th century and probably never will in my opinion - a Muslim country refers to the reality.

    Ya and I think the same can be said about Lebanon. 75% are Muslims yet it does not implement any Sharia laws. Of course the president is Christian so I wouldnt expect it.
