Dr Amina Wadud

Has this been posted? I don't see it. It angers me.

At the recent international Islamic conference o­n an Islamic approach to combating AIDS/HIV, Dr Amina Wadud, associate professor in Islamic studies at Virginia Commonwealth University, was fired at for lashing out at Muslims in positions of authority whose only response to preventing HIV/AIDS is quoting the Qur’anic verse that says “La taqrabu 'z-zina” – “Do not approach adultery.”

This is indeed disgusting. All forms of extremism are dangerous and mindless.

Not only that, she was called a 'devil in a hijab'. And other stuff. This is so infuriating.

I swear this is what pisses me off about some of the practicing Muslims.... Fine, ok, say that we should stay away from adultery.... But, lets be a little open minded and reasonable here, what if someone is raped, or more commenly, what if medical tools are being reused over and over again, thus causing aids... Which is a major case....

This really pisses me off when extremists do this crap... Its not even about being extreme, its about being self centered...


JUst for the note: hehehe, I like the doctors name, reminds me of my own...
