Muslims - Will you fast during exam period? Exam clash with Ramadan watch

    Fair enough. You have the right, but you have to understand that we found some of your comments disrespectful and I would just like to point out that those punishments you have mentioned in 'Islamic' countries are NOT Islamic in any way.
    Well I'll point out that if anyone here is offended it is because I have criticised their religion, which really in the 21st century I don't think should be vital to one's sense of well being. I have however been insulted on this thread in a more personal manner by several users. My entire personality and identity has been unfairly criticised which really to me comes across as a more serious matter.

    I'm willing to apologise for any unnecessary and untoward upset I have caused but it's up the individual to decide how much of that applies to them.

    I'm aware that beheading isn't something unique to Islamic republics and certainly isn't an 'Islamic' custom but it certainly is depraved and factually more present in the Islamic world today.


    (Islamic seems to be an appropriate word to me, what's the issue?)

    Yeah I was in a similar one where I got reported by the Enlightenment squad.

    But I am happy as I have the God Emperor on my side, he is smiling down at me giving me the strength to do well in the exams.
    No revising for me
    Exactly, you don't even have to revise with god on your side.

    Of course we will still revise. We have to put our effort in too.

    I respect your opinion - about being open-minded to criticisms and such. However I can't fault the muslims here for feeling like his comments were disrespectful; even in spite of the inferences you've made. You may infer different meanings but his tone in the earlier comments does come off as disrespectful. We could analyse his wording as you have, but it's a two-way street - he could also improve his tone, too.

    Personally I don't feel all the criticism he's listed so far (which are valid i admit) are in anyway relevant to the current this thread is trying to focus on: fasting during exam periods.
    Yeah and as I put in that post, HAnwar did have a good point and she is right for this case because of what she explained.

    The paragraphs were talking about general criticism.

    On behalf of everyone, I apologise if you feel you have been unfairly criticised but by you criticising our religion which is personal to us and also part of our identity, it is the same thing isn't it?
    If it is present in the 'islamic world', that shows that its people that is the problem, not the religion itself.

    I would like to say thank you for clearing that up. However, as mentioned by someone else, this thread was made for Muslim's to have a chat about whether they are going to be fasting during exams. I'm sure there are plenty of threads for debating and would be good place for you to use your arguments and opinions.
    The final thing I have to say is that you simply cannot close off threads from certain groups. Yes you can encourage certain people to discuss issues but if I made a thread talking about how to avoid getting sunburn, would it really be in my remit to deny the opinions/jokes/taunts of people with darker skin because 'it's not relevant to them'?

    It's really un-British to have that sort of notion in my opinion. If we are going to live in a multicultural Britain then these formerly isolated issues come to affect all cultures and people and that's something we're all going to have to accept.

    I certainly understand this to an extent and will keep it in mind, thanks.

    Okay fair enough, both parties have been in the wrong here. I hope you have accepted my apology and thank you for taking my comment on board

    Probably fast on the days I have AM exams but eat on the days of PM exams because I'll most likely fall asleep in the afternoon exams hungry.
