Who2, if you are making a home for the dog, does this qualify you for membership of the Kennel Club?

On the BBC today was an article about the Icelandic muslims who fast for 22 hours...the interval between sunrise and sunset.

There might be some superhumans who want to fast for 22hours, but the other option is to follow the intent and spirit of fasting by following nearby cities, or they can follow the times of Mecca and Medina....as approved by numerous islamic scholars

Alas, nowadays, far too many muslims are fixated on the hadiths and sunnah rather than the Qu'ran.

Still, when Ramadan moves to winter in the Northern hemisphere, I suppose they barely notice the fasting requirements. :lol:

I wonder how many people converted while living in Luxor for the benefits, but have now returned home are coping with Ramadan? I suppose they have just reverted to Christian faith again, because the benefits are greater back home. There are some that go with whichever way the wind blows, for their own benefits..... :xx :xx

You must be thinking of those who, unable to integrate, quickly liquidated their assets (and family dog) and high-tailed it .

I can't imagine there are any material benefits in converting to Islam and the idea that anyone who'd converted would cynically revert is preposterous....even by your standards :stp

You display your total ignorance when you view Ramadan - the holiest and most joyous time of the year for muslims - as an inconvenient burden.

Major Thom, iIt would seem that for someone who often bangs on about other people's ignorance and/or lack of education (in your opinion), you are ignorant of both Islam and Christianity.

Shopping over The Dark Side, took a couple of Luxor's entrepreneurs, they seem to enjoy my shopping trips.
Quite as the grave over there...
Paws & Claws shut, but B&Q was ravaged and the Coptic electric shop everything wanted everything got.
WD40, spanners, karabiners, sky hooks.
Then all into Hamees, beers all round bumping into an elderly hippy tourist from Dover & Thailand, Nigel a bit of a character!
Back to The Bright Side all done in 2 hours "nuff-said...... 8)

Could you take him to AWOL, Animal Welfare of Luxor on the West Bank, and they can put him to sleep? It’s situated on the road, leading onto the bridge going over the Nile, towards the East Bank. Right hand side of the road.
