    I did. Religiously. I don't think you understand. All I did was pray and study, for 30 days and about a month before.
    Even if you hadn't prayed and only studied for a month hardcore then wouldn't you be able to pass anyway?

    how can you memories the quran its a big book. I doubt you could re-write it if I gave you pen and paper. Anyway I can't tell you what to do but I've lost all tolerance for muslims and I'm someone who actively defended them but honestly Islam is a huge contradiction of itself... peaceful my ass.

    Trust me I could. Maybe one or two mistakes, which I'm trying to get rid of but I could.

    I don't know because I didn't do that. Maybe, maybe not.

    I was confident man, thinking these guys might be on the up but then the guy is a complete mug. All political parties are terrible tbh, it's effectively just picking the least **** one there is.

    You actively defended muslims but you don't know how someone could be a hafidh?

    Well you could but I don't really want to, pretty shy about it.

    I got asked to pray taraweeh at a local mosque but turned it down as I felt wrong leading the prayer with doubt about the faith in my heart, and it's a lot of pressure and I'm slightly shy with this sort of thing.

      It's not though. The religion also has problems. You only need to look at the threads on Islam on this forum with an open mind and you realise that there are a number of flaws in the religion.

      The above, last sentence.
      Yeah well i've been here a while and nothing here is new it's mainly just recycled stuff from answering-islam. What flaws are you talking about, to be more specific?

      My objection to Islam is it has no concept of breathing constitution and historically has been unable to reign in excesses of society and rulers.

      You also have to question the success of a faith that has 2 civil wars over power less than 50 years after the death of mohammed

      Like its stance on homosexuality. Why would God create a man and instil a desire/attraction for other men. Yet prohibit him to the extent of punishment by death from him carrying out these desires. Yet heterosexuals can marry to alleviate their desires. Is that fair?

      Does the reason why Allah created humans and why he desires worship makes sense to you? At the most basic level I cannot make sense of why we exist other than to serve Allah and why Allah needs or desires this worship. That alone renders the religion too nonsensical for me.

      Name calling or suggesting people are stupid or brainwashed is a bigoted approach to take.
      Religion is a judgement calls no one is brainwashed everyone has access to the internet

      I would but at the moment I can't afford it. Got robbed a couple of weeks ago the sum of £7k. So literally broke now and using my overdraft to make myself money again. I'm about £700 up but I need to make some more for my accommodation next year as I signed a contract for a studio flat thinking I could comfortably afford it with the money I had and now will be in a bit of trouble if I can't.

      Exactly, why would he require the worship of mere mortals. It's not like he requires, needs it so why would he want it?

      Playing devils advocate here the muslim response would be
      People can have a desire for alot of thinks like Alcohol,drugs or rape yet they are forbidden.

      However god in his ultimate wisdom has forbidden certain things for public good.

      I wasn't made to do anything. It was my choice. In fact my parents were worried it would impact upon my education negatively so didn't really want me to do it.
