monkeys ' r ' us

Narrated 'Amr bin Maimun: "During the pre-lslamic period of ignorance I saw a she-monkey surrounded by a number of monkeys. They were all stoning it, because it had committed illegal sexual intercourse. I too, stoned it along with them."

Muslims fear criticism or mockery of their religion more than they fear death.
The good thing about Islam is that you don’t actually have to mock it, Islam mocks itself.
The Sunna of Muhammad, his personal example, is mainly contained in extra-Koranic sources, especially the hadith. Even the practices of prayer and pilgrimage are based on information from the hadith literature.These are the most important religious texts for a billion Muslims, second only to the Koran itself.
