    In that locked thread, dude said he was fasting for Ramalamadingdong or whatever, but he said he ate snacks and protein shakes...

    isn't a fast where you eat nothing? at all?

    not to start the religious discussion in here but is there some loophole I am not aware of when it comes to fasting?

    I'm no expert, but you're allowed food, just not certain types of food and only at certain times in the day.

    IIRC you can't eat/drink/fuck/etc between sunrise and sunset. No drinking means no water too.

    i think water and crackers is allowed for Passover for the Jews, they fast for a whole 24 hours. we just fast sun rise to sun set, nothing to eat/drink during that time

    It's called Ramadan, and the others are correct - no eating, drinking, masturbating, swearing, porn etc. You also aren't supposed to smoke or take pills, so that would include supplements etc.

    Although obviously if you NEED to take medication, drink water if you're diabetic etc.. you can. It's just meant to be a lesson in self-discipline - not torture.

    Lately its between 5am and 7:10pm, usually, you wake up at 4am, eat breakfast and go back to sleep. Then break your fast at around 7pm.

    Would a more fanatic muslim, say, somebody willing to blow themselves to pieces based on their faith, skip the medications too? Or is the medication exception a more modernized development in the culture?

    fanatics see everything as forbidden. that's why they're fanatics. the prophet (pbuh) said:

    "Religion is very easy and whoever overburdens himself in his religion will not be able to continue in that way. So you should not be extremists, but try to be near to perfection and receive the good tidings that you will be rewarded."

    and i'm sure the medication thing has been around for a while, nothing modern about it. like marix said, fasting is meant to be about self-discipline, not torture.

    Its more of a modernized development. So its not really looked down apon.


    I really don't understand all the stupid hateful questions like that. I understand things you don't understand might be scary and confusing to you, but Islam doesn't teach any form of hate. I understand that most of you get your ideas of muslims come from TV - and that TV paints this picture that Muslims are extremists, and these extremists are everywhere. The media takes a peaceful religion twists it up and feeds it to you, and good people get judged for it.

    Do you remember the way Japanese were treated during WWII?
    The way the African Americans were treated during the civil rights movement?

    I don't understand this stereotype either - I've never even met an extremist before, i don't even know someone who knows someone who's an extremist. :rofl:

    I find this funny because the only time i ever see extremists, are on TV. All the Muslims I know (and i know a lot), are just normal people. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure there are crazy people out there, but a lot of people really blow this out of proportion.

    Islam has been here in the USA for generations and generations - and if Islam really thought terrorism to Muslims - then we're doing a pretty bad job of being terrorists. Anyone who's been around any practicing Muslims can tell you that these thoughts are stupid to say the least.

    Don't get me wrong - Yes, there are bad people out there. But you're going to find them in every religion, and there will be people who use religion to spread hate. But this doesn't make the religion bad, it makes those who do these things bad.

    Do you see me judging Christianity because of the Christians who wanted to send a pro-life message out by blowing up an abortion clinic and killing innocent people?

    If you studied Islam, you'd see there is no terrorism in it.
    Out of the 6 billion people on this planet, 1.5 billion people are Muslims. Do you see 1 out of 4 human beings on this planet going out and doing an act of terrorism, or are you just going by what the media spoon feeds you?

    When is the last time you saw a Muslim on Cops? The most deadliest police chases? If Islam thought terrorism I promise you with 1.5 billion people being Muslim on this planet, we'd have a lot more terrorism.

    Did you know there are nearly TWICE as many Muslims living in China than there are in Saudi Arabia? Why isn't China a country filled with people blowing stuff up on a daily basis like the media says?

    If you want to study Islam - go study Islam, don't study misguided Muslims.

    Before people start quoting the Qur'an out of context and saying stupid statements.

    Take this statement.
    Does that sound violent to you? Does that sound like something that can be taken out of context? That's because you don't know what the entire verse, or previous and forecoming setences say. You can take verses out of any religious text, be it Jewish, Christian, Buddhist or Islamic and have it serve any purpose you want.

    That statement, wasn't from the Qur'an - It was from the bible. Matthew 10:34. Does this mean Christianity or Catholisism teaches terrorism too? No it does not.

    Islam encourages thought, it advises man to think, and reflect. Not run around like a bunch of extremists blowing things up. It promotes tranquility and peace.

    A religion should not be judged by its corrupt and decieved followers.
    If you're really curious about what Islam really teachs, i got an idea.
    Why don't you go to your local islamic center?

    Islam is a peaceful and beautiful religion that the media does a great job of twisting. We need to stop being idiots and accepting whatever the media spoon feeds us.

    Peace.

    to be completely honest, the best approach for picking up girls at the gym is to go in being very casual and matter-of-fact. women are there, for the most part, to just work out. they don't really want to be bothered by men there. It's a little different if you have something to talk about, though. If you were on the cardio machine next to a hot bitch, and some breaking news came on the TV's... well then, there ya go.

    if you have balls and want to approach anyone, i'd say do this:
    "hey, you're doing that <exercise> wrong. you could really injure your body doing that."

    "oh. really? how am i supposed to do it?"
    (like 99% of girls will say this because most of them don't know how or what to work out, and want a man in shape to train them. trust me on that.)

    get a little touchy feely with them at this point... guide their arm or whatever and show them the "proper" way :mamoru:... while demonstrating, make some casual flirty (BUT NOT HITTING ON) chat...
    "i've never seen you here before... doesn't look like you go to the gym much."

    "OMG *flirty "hit" on the shoulder* DID YOU JUST CALL ME FATTT??"
    "what?? hahahah nooo, you are doing this <exercise> wrong, aren't you?"

    "ohhh hahahaha lolz1!! yeahhhh"

    "well, like i said, doesn't look like you go to the gym much."
    if she starts qualifying herself to you, and saying "nooo but i do. i go on this day, this day, this day, and this day. i do cardio...... blah blah blah" then take that as a great sign that you're on the right track. she's interested.

    At this point, you should know what to do if you have any game whatsoever. You can ask her what her name is at this point, if SHE hasn't already asked you what yours is. If she has asked you what yours is, take that as a nice sign of interest.

    me personally, i'm so full of shit when i flirt with girls... i'm saying for example, if i asked what her name was and she said "jennifer", i'd probably say well i'm evh, nice to meet you... it's actually funny your name is jennifer because my ex gf is named jennifer and when i'd go to the gym with her, she'd wear these *point to an article of clothing of hers, make sure u make physical contact* same exact hysterical wife-beaters.

    "why is it hysterical?"
    because you're a skinny little thing *look girl up and down whilst her watching you do this. very confident and self-secure*, and you're wearing a muscle shirt :rofl:

    i think you get the idea. by the way, you have to have skills in how to control your body language, keep your cool, stay confident, and act normal.

    i've picked up the girls at the front desks before. gotten a couple numbers. the trick with them is to be cocky and funny, while not taking yourself too seriously (if you are jacked and have a nice body). majority of the faggots that come up to the desk to hit on the girls are the ones that are extremely jacked up and think that they're god's gift to women because of it. remember, the girls see huge fucks all day long. the girls behind the desk like the change up of an actually charming guy that's "manly" and not a wussy, and has the balls and confidence to talk to them and be cocky+funny at the same time.

    Not to mention that suicide is possibly the worst sin you can committ in Islam.

    Anyone blowing themselves for whatever reason is NOT practicing Islam.. they are just insane.

    Perfect post p8baller.. I can't even think of anything to add. :bowdown:

    It's funny btw how people who aren't even fasting are more bothered by the idea of it than the people who are :ugh2:
