    Yeah I know, everyone has different paces. Someone negged you for this post too - I don't understand why people who are against Islam would come to his thread even though it's specifically adressing Muslims.
    Don't worry, just ignore them. I wasn't surprised to see the likes of Steve and Chelseafan posting in this thread (the usual anti-Islam culprits). It's better that you're still learning and reading it, than finishing it when you're 10 and not remembering anything afterwards etc. All the best with finishing it off during Ramzan inshaAllah.

    He didn't say anything particularly bad, no need to single him out.

    Wow that's really good mashallah. Did you go to mosque or did you get a teacher to come to your house?

    Basically, My dad is very Islamic Mashallah, he has published over 10 books, he has built a mosque in Pakistan and he is well known in our family.
    I didnt go to mosque but I was taught at home by my Dad and my sister, My sister would teach me throughout the week and my Dad would test me on the weekend.

    My sister-in-law taught me for a short space of time as she has a degree in Islamic teachings and Arabic studies.
    My brother-in-law also taught me for a short space of time which was an advantage because he is a Hafiz Quran.
    I know-Confusing with a lot of past teachers!!!!!!!

    My boyfriends an atheist. He's 17 and has finished reading the bible (old and new testaments) and the qur'an. Unfortunately he only does it to find holes in other peoples religions so he can 'debate' with them. ie have a full blown row over how silly their beliefs are and how their prophet/saviour/whatever isn't such the perfect person that they're portrayed to be. :sigh:

    So he only reads it to proactively find holes, how nice of him. I bet he just skims past all the good bits ...

    Probably. He says that he likes some of the fables and what not. He's from a Catholic family so had to read the bible when he was younger, but cos he didn't believe in any of it, as he was reading he found things that contracdicted each other or are things that are unacceptable now a days.

    I finished it the first time when I was about 9/10 years old, in English though. I've read bits of it in Arabic but didn't see the point in reading something I can't understand. Think I've read it about 4/5 times now.

    I'd rather read it skeptically than gloss over all the bad bits. Surely that's better?

    Thanks that's very kind of you. I haven't had the time to look at any english translations because I've been busy as well. Well, we've got Ramadan to do it now, thank God it's it's in the summer holidays.

    I wouldnt say Im very very religious but I do try to do my best!!!My dad has never forced us to do something or learn something but belives there has to be self input to achieve, and if he is going to tell us all our lives, what are we going to learn about our religion if we are not completely devoted to it.
    I have lived by a motto and when i feel i am straying a little I think of this and it motivates me......

    "its as if you are going into a gold shop expecting the best when you have no money to give in return"
