    Hi there, just passing thru. I Googled for religious forums to have a quick philosophical tussle in the ballpark of my religion: Islam.

    I noticed a few other forums dealing in religion and upon delving l quickly decided: no. No. No way. It was like opening an oven, that blast of hot air.

    This forum is much better, thank you for keeping it tidy.

    I want to leave you an idea i picked up from along the way: the secret of spirituality is remembering you have an anus. So we mustn't get too proud. Destroy the ego.

    Welcome. But why not stick around to deal with responses to your posts? Isn't that the point of posting on discussion boards?

    Sure. I am trying to survive financially at the same time but l'll bite if there's a powerful counterarg. I live for those, as long as the counterargs are constructive. I don't much like agreement, nothing to learn from it.

    SufiPhilosophy,

    Hang in there, and please don't mind me. I'm just interfaith's broken toy, just don't work exactly right. I'm sure there are plenty of people here who will be capable of giving you your args.

    Welcome, @SufiPhilosophy!

    Were you born into a Muslim family? How did your interest in Sufism arise? Are you studying under a Sheikh?

    Feel free to start threads on the topics you want to tussle over.

    Thank you. I don't like to discuss my wider family but l really got into Sufism when l encountered a Sufi teacher who knew stuff about me (he would hold sessions where the public would visit him, no money involved, he was well known for psychic abilities). I soon after found a booklet with Rumi quotes.

    No sheikh unfortunately. Not yet anyway. But l read the Qur'an and various hadith collections. Find it hard to put the hadith collections down sometimes, they are alluring.

    You’re a little late. The member has come and, at least temporarily, withdrawn his presence on the forum.
