this is getting confusing, who's in what team etc
the pros/cons thing, it's not v. organised
Pictures of humans, animals and supposed representations of God are forbidden in Islam, as these objects on their own can become idols and be worshipped. But pictures of animals and humans are allowed if the intention behind using them is pure; ie, for educational use. (from a website, not based on my opinion)
I loved photography but when I foind it was haraam years ago I dramatically stopped. The last and probably only photos I take is selling items on ebay.
But I also read photoshops/people who process photos etc will go to hell where their photos will come alive etc.
Basically don't take many photos - even if it's a wedding leave that to the camera man etc and you'll only look at wedding photos a few times in your life.
I've probably got myopia but I can't seem to find ISOC2 in the Soc list.
Only the closed ISOC1 is there.
Anyone told the mods?
I have got in trouble recently so I will change my tact here and try to be more courteous,
I dont wish to upset/offend people, I have only known a few muslim people in my life,and it did not go down too well, but I wish to learn of what is considered offensive ect!
I am pretty opinionated but I dont want to verbally abuse people so I would like to learn to respect people of all faiths.
I have a strong sense of humour which gets taken for nastiness by people of all persuasions, so I would like to learn what to and what definately not to say when in the company of muslims.
A Y A Z: Actually, let me rescind that offer to be judge in your debate idea. I'm not sure what side i want to be on actually... I'd prefer pros cos some of the research in here might help me in D&D forums if there are any debates questioning Islam.
