We are One by Imperius-Rex We are One by Imperius-Rex
"And for every nation is a messenger. So when their messenger comes, it will be judged between them in justice, and they will not be wronged"
Qur'an 10:47

"O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted."
Qur'an 49:13

This piece is intended to promote racial equality and religious tolerance. To represent this diversity, I have chosen a number of major belief systems and have tried my best to showcase the similarities between them. In terms of adherents, they are listed as follows:
Islam (2.1 billion adherents)
Christianity (2 billion adherents)
Hinduism (1 billion adherents)
Buddhism (500 million adherents)
Sikhism (30 million adherents)
Judaism (13.4 million adherents)
*Edited on Feb 9th, 2013: Islam (formerly listed with 1.8 billion adherents) and Christianity (formerly listed with 2.2 billion adherents) have been updated to their most current estimates.

This is nice work.  Beauty for both eye and mind.

Perhaps when the killing stops and the thinking starts, it will become reality.  For now, knowing that you and I will not kill each other over religion gives your thought a start.

I know plenty of good muslims, There are just more radical Muslims out there that give them a bad image.

Islam itself is not a inherently bad religion.

"Islam itself is not a inherently bad religion."

Except the whole being able to get away with abusing women, public stoning over trivial nonsense, being able to kill non-believers and get away with it, Teaching of conquest in the name of their "Prophet", and not being able to evolve with the modern world unlike every other religion.

Unlike the teachings of Christianity where Christ taught peace and tolerance towards your fellow man/woman. However Mohammad taught violence and just over all evil ways to the Arabian people. He was also was a conqueror, pedophile, rapist and a illiterate brute. Not the kind of person anyone should have followed.

What the Islamic Turks did to the Balkans is also a good example of Islams brutality. Where they'd steal male children, force them to convert to Islam and have them fight for the Sultan or rob from a village and then force them to convert.

But I must say not all Muslims are violent people. They're religion is just fucked.

"Where they'd steal male children, force them to convert to Islam"
Mohmmad was not accepting those who wanted to convert to Islam without their parents permission {this is what history says.

"However Mohammad taught violence and just over all evil ways to the Arabian people.+ an insult "
Violence came after his death because of those who wanted to rule and did ! some of those stupid personality(s) are still ruling arabian parts and out side, they support the terrorist in Iraq and Sirya ! Planning to take it all and force it's people to join their religion  muslims are not just one religion now they are too many,   good Muslims are rare but they are really good ! so those who cut heads of my kind for we love "Imam Hussain the symbol  of freedom" are not muslim they are called wahabians mostly exist in al-soudia's kingdom  if you wana see them LOL they eat shia muslim kind hearts too they are too awful even thinking about them makes me never want to live! by the way yes i hate them too! in soudia women can't drive it's a bug in there religion but other kinds of religion women can drive  for us even a bike is available hehe anyway i want to say muslims are not the same everywhere there are so many of them !

Seems like you don't know anything about the Turkish Janissary corp. I suggest you educate yourself about it and read up on what the Islamic Turks did to the Balkans.

Pretty sure Mohammad fought a lot of battles killing many people in them as well.

the Turkish Janissary is almost a 1000year after Mohammad's death
you say Islamic Turks just like if I'm one of their biggest fans hehehehe LOL...

I don't like those cause religion was an ideal tool to control more lands in that time but when you can't have more than 1 religion you'll have to fight when you have the ability to.    if you need more lands and power!

simply I don't like Ottomanians(Turks) ,those whom ruled Islam before them and after them including (Umayyad rule,Abbasid rule and more who came after them ... Why? you may wonder!
because all of those were against the house hold of the prophet  they have been tutoring them putting them in jails killing them and enemies without reasons
the house hold of the prophet wanted people to live happily with justice and peace without violence !
and sometimes these were against what the government wants (high taxes made life hard for people ,<this was turks's)
any way i don't know a lot of these things for i hate history

the house hold of the prophet were great scientists and worked hard for justice to help the poor  (they were against
Racism)
and they didn't care about the religion of the opponent who needs help they just helped!


the relationship between the house hold of the prophet and Christians was good !

Mohammad fought lots of battles yes! first it was there own protection  protecting the new religion they were in danger as a new power because people loved Mohammad and his new religion they supported him !
even Christians helped Mohammad  and protected muslims from
Quraysh tribe !
then they helped Iraq and saved them from Persian attacks more people joined Islam
.
Mohammad tried to spread Islam using the most peaceful ways by sending messengers to kings of kingdoms and empires  inviting them to Islam and interdicting Islam to them  and wars were the last choice !

all I mean is: Mohammad didn't come by violence !
i think you don't know anything about how Islam begun! what did Mohammad do to get people around respect him, love him and support him? you should read about it friend then say who came by violence

i said the relation between christian and the house hold of the prophet was good right!
optional:- you don't need to read this:

The Marriage of the Roman princess Malika with Imam Hassan Askari (as)

Nargis Khatoon (sa) said: "That night, I had a vision as I saw Jesus (as) with Shimeon and a number of other disciples gathered in my grandfather's palace, where a high tribune of bright light was erected in the same place where my grandfather was enthroned.

I saw Prophet Mohammad (SAW), his son-in-law and Imam Ali Al-Mortadha (as) with eleven of his sons entering the place. Jesus (as) advanced to receive them and embraced Prophet Mohammad (SAW). Prophet Mohammad (SAW) said to Jesus: "O' spirit of God, I came to you to betroth and engage your disciple Shimeon's daughter Malika to this son of mine, pointing out to Imam Hassan Askari (as), and the writer of this letter." Jesus (as) looked at Shimeon and said: "Honor has marched towards you. Relate your kin to the kinship of the progeny of Prophet Mohammad (SAW)." Shimeon replied: "I did". Then Prophet Mohammad (SAW) ascended the tribune and gave an eloquent speech and conducted my marriage ceremony to his son. Jesus (as) bore witness as well as Prophet Mohammad (SAW) and the present disciples of Jesus (as).

Roman princess Malika Falls in Love with Imam Hassan Askari (as)

Nargis Khatoon (sa) elaborated: When I woke up, I could not relate the vision to my father or grandfather in fear of their persecution. I concealed this vision in my heart, but day by day I grew in love with Imam Hassan Askari (as). I yearned and longed to meet with him. I lost my appetite and stopped eating and drinking. I grew thin and weak and became ill. There was not a doctor in cities of the Roman Empire that my grandfather did not bring to treat my illness and find my cure.

Desperate and despondent about my recovery, my grandfather asked if I had any wish or desire to be fulfilled in this life. I said: "Dear grandfather, I see the doors of relief and hope being closed in my face, but if you would stop the torture of Muslim captives and prisoners and promise to release them from your jails and set them free, then may be Jesus and his mother Mary will then grant me good health." When my grandfather accepted my request, I forced myself to eat and drink a little and pretended to recover. He was so delighted with these signs of improvement, that he became very kind to Muslim captives and prisoners.

Well even though Christians have been taught to be peaceful and respect others, we don't.

And before you say some shit like "You must be a Muslim" or "You like durkies", I do not. My oldest brother and my dearest friend was killed in iraq, died from bleeding the sand. I don't think there is inherently wrong with Islam, Radicals have taken script from the Quran and use it to fuel their anger.

Kings James version of the bible has many parts which are questionable and downright morally wrong, But also has many texts that are rich with beauty.

I really freaking wish this could happen, but I can't realsitically wrap my mind aound how people can love one thing without hating another thing. Ecspecially with about 40% of the New Testament saying that "everything that contradicts Jesus being God's one and only son sucks" :(

Hello to you too, lil' feller!  It is true, alas, I do use the :D to say "Oh my, aren't you a biased asshat to only show one side of a problem" way too often.

But I disagree about it being inappropriate here, as you were indeed demonstrating your biased asshatry to only show one side of a problem and I used it in response to you doing so.

So, other than the biased asshat thingy, how you doin'?

I'm critical of Christians because I'm Christains. It also helps that theyre the most populous and control all the most powerful countries at the moment. I'd want Muslims to be critical of muslims, Hindus to be critical of Hindus and so on.

But hey, lets play it your way and have everyone hate evryone else. Worked out for humans for 20,000 years after all. :D

And now I'm gonna randomly plop in smiley faces in every post I make to you just to see how you like it.

I don't pop them in randomly, silly person.  As I said, " It is true, alas, I do use the :D (Big Grin) to say "Oh my, aren't you a biased asshat to only show one side of a problem" way too often."

Two things,  One, I don't mind if you do.  The smiley face is far less useless than your babble.  In fact, just send me the smiley faces and let your hand get back to it's important business in your pants.

Two, could you send the kid your mommy had that wasn't brain damaged in the failed argument to taunt me and post those lil' emoties?  We'll graduate to poetry and real insult soon enough and he/she/it would be brighter and thus, more fun. :D

Take a chance
To join this dance
All that "is" will be revealed
Release your mind
And smilies smilies all around!
Can't you see?
Everything is more clear
To me and to you
But don't forget
(We've) smilies smilies all around

And we dance
In this endless carousel
Can’t you feel the asshat
Power rising from the ground?
No more bad thoughts
We can leave the world behind
Just keep in mind
(We've) smilies smilies all around
Goblins all around!

I love what you've done with your room,
it's no longer a cold, braindead tomb,
though braindead you may be,
the smilies, you see,
at least make a dent in the gloom.

You're not much of a poet, plain to  see,
but then, with your IQ,  how could you be?
being asshattish alone,
may give you the stone,
but not the wit to talk smack with me. :D

You'll note I used only one smilie above,
to send your sad, braindead self my love,
one well placed smilie from me,
equals a billion from you, easily,
you're a pushover when push comes to shove!

Thank you.  Please play again!  :nod:
