    American Muslims Launch 'My Faith My Voice' PSA
    The Washington Post reported that Salam Al-Marayati, president of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, said at the interfaith news conference that not enough has been done to promote greater dialogue between Muslims and non-Muslims.

    "Definitely there is the need for an American Muslim narrative," he said. "The story of what mainstream American Muslims stand for has not been told effectively. We as Muslim Americans need to do a lot of changing and soul-searching."

    It's really fucking sad that this needed to be done in the first place.

    Because posting this picture:

    is the same as saying Christianity is an inherently evil religion and Christians can't be trusted because they would like everyone in the world to find Jesus as their savior, right?

    Wrong.

    Making a joke with a religious symbol--call it bashing if it makes yew feel better--is not the same as saying that members of a religion should be marginalized in society and bullied into forfeiting the use of their rights.

    Post a picture of Mohammad, with or without the caption, and being bullied into forfeiting the use of your rights may be the least of your concerns.

    You are correct. Funny thing though, posting this image

    can get you killed. Yet you think I am crazy for saying that Islam is a sick and dangerous culture.

    Islam Question and Answer - The kufr of one who rules according to other than what Allaah revealed

    Allaah has commanded us to refer matters to His judgement and to establish Sharee‘ah, and He has forbidden us to rule with anything else, as is clear from a number of aayaat in the Qur’aan, such as the aayaat in Soorat al-Maa’idah (5) which discuss ruling according to what Allaah has revealed, and mention the following topics:

    The command to rule according to what Allaah has revealed: “And so judge between them by what Allaah has revealed . . .” [aayah 49]

    Warning against ruling by other than what Allaah has revealed: “. . . and follow not their vain desires . . .” [aayah 49]

    Warning against compromising on any detail of Sharee‘ah, no matter how small: “. . . but beware of them lest they turn you far away from some of that which Allaah has sent down to you . . .” [aayah 49]

    Forbidding seeking the ruling of jaahiliyyah, as is expressed in the rhetorical question “Do they then seek the judgement of (the Days of) Ignorance?” [aayah 50]

    The statement that nobody is better than Allaah to judge: “. . . and who is better in judgement than Allaah for a people who have firm Faith?” [aayah 50]

    The statement that whoever does not judge according to what Allaah revealed is a kaafir, a zaalim (oppressor or wrongdoer) and a faasiq (sinner), as Allaah says: “. . . And whoever does not judge by what Allaah has revealed, such are the kaafiroon.” [aayah 44]; “. . . And whoever does not judge by that which Allaah has revealed, such are the zaalimoon (polytheists and wrongdoers)” [aayah 45]; “. . . And whoever does not judge by what Allaah has revealed (then) such (people) are the faasiqoon (rebellious or disobedient).” [aayah 47].

    The statement that it is obligatory for the Muslims to judge according to what Allaah has revealed, even if those who seek their judgement are not Muslim, as Allaah says: “. . . And if you judge, judge with justice between them. . .” [aayah 42]

    8:39. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world[]]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer of what they do.

    [ 2:193.. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allâh) and (all and every kind of) worship is for Allâh (Alone).[] But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zâlimûn (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc
