However last night a program came on to television in Australia, made by the same guy that made "Supersize me". It did very well in cinemas in the US; and I think internationally. It was based on McDonalds and what would happen to you if you ate it everyday. Anyway this guy is doing a series on television.
He put a christian American into a Muslim household for 30 days. To cut a long story short i learned a little about the faith that they have.
Without being too presumptious or ignorant or naive for that matter. The basics of the religion are that they believe that Jesus was a prophet not the son of god. They believe in one god (as christians do). I have to say I am now going to look further into it. I can't say I believe in the whole thing because I feel that it isn't a great religion. I do have a better understanding now of why the women chose to wear the outfits they do; they feel that it resembles MARY.
I understand that I don't have all the information, but I must admit I found it very interesting.
