Going through this morning’s email, I just came upon this:
curse be on christians and jew .oh muslims they r not ur friends but 2 each other.anyone who befiends them is one of their rank
Nothing like a good curse to go with my morning coffee! And “befiends” is good, even if inadvertent. The writer, of course, is referring to Qur’an 5:51: “O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for friends. They are friends one to another. He among you who taketh them for friends is (one) of them. Lo! Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk.”
When was the last time you heard Jews or Christians pronouncing curses on Muslims or anyone else? Just wondering.
