Human Beings: See islam always attacks the other religions so now all religions will attack muslim as their enemy. Like a prophet seals the bad evil spirits the islam will be Shut for 1000 years as the Punishment for arrogant muslims to explain them Who are the ruler above islam created by Human Beings.

  Muhammad,

the creator of the world’s most sexually restrictive religion was also

one of the most sexually indulgent characters in history. My latest

article is certain to generate controversy, however, it is based on the

writing in their own Quran. Facts are Facts. -(c) JAN MORGAN

Regarding Sex and the Prophet of Islam janmorganmedia.com

Why does any civilized human being blindly follow a Prophet

who was a documented mass murderer and pedophile? I hold adults

accountable for the religion they align themselves with. Children

All arab Apologize For The Sins Of Wrong islam amp; its terrorist violence.

All arabian people said:

All islamic people apologize to all Human Beings for all muslim violence. And we all arab have to make responsible for the Sins of islam. Our arabian prophets are NOT a president. All islamic laws and its past histories are NOT perfect always have its wrongs. The islam have been survived by the real truth from outside islam.

People in Different Geological conditions amp; languages create so many names of local God to survive like the word of 'Allah' is our arabian Local God Not Global. That is why the islamic ego is wrong at all that is the monotheism’s egoistic wrongs.

Find the real truth outside the islamic books. Heaven is in your heart. Because inside you there are the house for all truth. It is true that islam is just the past prophets imagination to sustain lives on this world. We all islamic people are Shame for all islamic ego and our selves to be punished by our death.

Sincerely,

All arab Apologize

The sorrowful islam is a Shame for Human Beings

Assemble again:

We are Jew jointed to kill islam.

We are Christian jointed to bombard islam.

We are Hindus jointed to eliminate islam.

We are Buddhist jointed to defeat islam.

We are Antiislam jointed to attack islam.

All Human Beings will Punish muslim for the Sins of islam amp; its violence.

By the anger of Nature The Real Creators will Destroy the noisy islamic mosques that disturb the Nature peace.

Maybe we aren't part of "the Muslim world."

Even when you don't mean to, there is prejudice afoot. Why are there no Western Muslims in these pictures? Could it be an unwritten assumption that there are no Muslims worth mentioning in America or Europe? We are here and fasting and enjoying the bounties of Allah and we are here in the US living the Sunnah of His messenger. We are just as Muslim, despite this slighting by photographers at TIME....

When you refuse to photograph something two feet away from you out of some hidden prejudice...does that mean it does not exist?

Praise be to Allah. 

American Muslims are here and we are VERY real....

Boot-licking little-read media outlet strives to portray vile religion in good light. Nobody fooled.

 There is no such thing as "vile religion".

All religions regardless of their ways have the same aim and that is to bring

humanity closer to God (The Almighty and the most merciful). The only vile thing,

according to my good friend “techkid90” is people like you who plague the

internet.

Not drinking during the hottest time of the year dos not sound like a grand idea. Apparently, self-inflicted suffering is a way of coming  closer to "god".

it is not everytime that ramadan is during the hottest time of the year. Every year, month of ramadan gets back like 10 days, this means we made ramadan 30 days later than we make it today, 3 years ago. In addition it's not self-inflicted, it is just a must for every muslim to show his-her fidelity for god.

There are many people in the world who don't have food to eat or water to drink. By fasting you can at lest experience a bit of it and you will strive more to help such people. God doesn't want us to suffer, all our suffering is self inflicted. Only if we follow the teachings of our Creator there will be no suffering. Fasting makes us realize the bounties God has provided to us in the form of food and drink. And its not just food and drink one has to refrain from but from lying, cheating, backbiting and all such immoral acts. One has to be far from these vices all the time its just a rigorous training period for the rest of the year.

Beautiful pictures, but dissapointed that more of the "Muslim World" wasn't respresented.  BTW Muslims live in every part of the world.  Not just the stereotypical Arabia, Pakistan, Palestine, etc.  Ramadan is a beautiful time of year where muslim from all over the globe strive through many diferent ways of worship to become closer to their creator.  If you live in the USA, stop by your local masjid and join us for dinner!  May Allah bless all of humanity this Ramadan by increasing love, peace, and joy in our hearts and souls.

Really beautiful pictures.  But disappointed  that alot of the "Muslim World" was left out.  BTW there are muslims in every part of the world.  Not just Pakistan, India, Arabia, Middle East.  This is a stereotype that many muslims strive to overcome. Ramadan is a beautiful month where all the muslims around the world are united in their efforts to connect to their creator through various types of worship.  If you are in the USA stop by your local masjid and enjoy dinner with us.  May Allah bless humanity this year during this special month by increasing our hearts and souls with peace, love, and joy.
