    Golden Hadith 22

    The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) said, “The likeness of the believers in their mutual love, mercy and compassion is that of the body; when one part of it is in pain, the rest of the body joins in it restlessness and fever.” [Saheeh Muslim, Book (The Book Of Al-Bir, Nurturing Ties And Manners), Chapter 17, Number 6586]
    Ibn Abu Jamrah said / Interpretation….

    The Prophet (peace be upon him) compared faith to the body and the believers to organs because faith is an origin and its branches are obligatory duties.
    So, when a person neglects some of the obligatory duties, it shall be like negligence in the origin (faith). The body is like a tree and its organs are like branches. So, when an organ aches, all organs feel pain; exactly as the tree when one of its branches is shaken, the entire tree shakes. The point of resemblance is similarity in fatigue and rest.

    …the islamists could almost match the christians when it comes to spouting meaningless santimonious claptrap.

        Don’t forget an extra ‘oops’ for mistakenly using the word ‘Islamists’ instead of ‘Muslims’ there.

          …I’ll stick with islamists if you don’t mind…but you go with muslims if you wish…I’m an equal opportunity atheist..

            It’s nowt to do with equal opportunity, your use of ‘islamist’ in this context is entirely incorrect and muslim is the appropriate word.

            Maybe if you swapped ‘Christian’ with ‘Opus Dei’ you might have a case

            …for context I was responding to something that purports to be from ‘DCU Islamic Society’ but whether your god is the talking snake lad or the one with the elephant head I don’t find much difference.

    This would get the ‘Yikes!’ treatment from Broadsheet, along the lines of that given to Alive! Newspaper or Lolek Ltd, if it weren’t a minority religion.
