@mrfrox250: The song isn't loading for me.

Not Muslim myself, but thanks for the kind words! Hope you have a great Malwid (hope I'm using that word correctly).

Would it be inappropriate for me to say I always found ladies in hijab to be quite attractive? Would hit on a girl in one back in high school.

@marcsman: they're just sending holiday greetings, not really having any religious discussion to make it a religious topic...

It's actually a sign that you could possibly be a serial rapist and/or killer.

They were polite and open minded. Just trying to share the celebration with like minded individuals on this forum, and even those who don't share the beliefs. For some reason I don't expect a "Merry Christmas" thread would be received with as much unease. If this stuff bothers you, it's easy to just not click on it.

I celebrate the diversity. Even if I'm not a member of that religion, it's really nice to see folks from different backgrounds on this website.

If this community is not mature enough, then maybe topics about Religion should not be allowed. I have very strong feelings about Muhammad and Islam, and wish to express them just as other express their [positive] feelings. I'm not going to start a flame war. I'll simply be very honest and say Muhammad's birthday should not be celebrated.

Just going to put this out there, but are you sure you are not mixing his birthday up with Muhammad Ali's? Because Muhammad Ali turned 72 today. Also my birthday, but that is irrelevant.

There are no real prophets, and religion is a cancer.

This is worse than religious fanatics forcing their beliefs onto people. Even though I agree with you, keep it to yourself.

Happy Mawlid

Why is this worse? Why should he not post his opinion?

Islam is not real. Muhammad was a warlord that lived in the 7th century, and I see no reason to celebrate his Birthday. I have every right to be open about my opinion. Who are you to tell me or this other poster to "keep it to yourself"?

Oh I don't know because you're coming into a thread where you obviously have nothing positive to contribute other than to stir up shit? Its just good manners to know when it is and isn't appropriate to bring up your opinions about things.

I understand what you mean. But don't do it in a thread made by a muslim wishing everyone a good day, on a day that is important to them.

This isn't the time and place to talk about your dislikes about religion or Islam.

The claims that Islam makes are not true. Does that make you feel better? I'm not here to argue semantics.

One of them could be that Mawlid isn't actually Muhammad's birthday:

from Wikipedia Mawlid:

The earliest observation of the Prophet's birth as a holy day was arranged privately somewhere in the late twelfth century. The only difference from before was that there was an increased number of visitors to the Mawlid house that was open for the whole day specifically for this celebration. This particular event took place on Monday, 12 Rabi'i, which is commonly known as the third month of the Islamic calendar that is associated with the beginning of Spring. This celebration was introduced into the city Sabta by Abu 'l'Abbas al-Azafi as a way of counteracting Christian festivals and to strengthen Muslim identity. Abu 'l'Abbas's son Abu 'l-Kasim propagated the festival after he seized power in 1250. Implementing these festivities and the celebration of Mawlid as a holy day increased Abu 'l-Kasim's popularity among the people, demonstrating the political role that this holy day played throughout history.

It would appear that members of this community have misconstrued the original purpose of this thread, which was for believers to celebrate a religiously significant event on the forums. As a result this thread is being locked. Using the forum to express disdain and hatred related to any religion is not tolerated on Giant Bomb as it violates our prime directive, which is "don't be a jerk." Please keep this in mind in the future.
