Since Muslims pray during certain times during the day and it is best to not make-up prayers, the early afternoon prayer is the ONLY prayer that occurs during school time.

It’s not that students of any faith can’t pray in school, no matter what the general public thinks. They can. And Muslim students do, in empty classrooms, under stairwells, and library corners. They just can’t do it with the support of the school, because that’s a violation of the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause.

What this means is that the school administration cannot lead prayers or mandate that students attend prayer.

What this means is that the school administration cannot lead prayers or mandate that students attend prayer.

The ruling according to the First Amendment Center “requires that teachers and administrators neither promote nor denigrate religion — a commitment to state neutrality that protects the religious freedom of students of all faiths and no faith.”.

The Christian religion has more than it's share of violence, and deceit in it's history. Go read up on the crusades or how it was imposed on the Pueblo Indians for example. Religions that claim an all powerful deity necessarily require self righteous arrogance and self imposed ignorance to maintain the assumption that theirs is the one true religion. There is no god, there is no allah, we made it all up as we evolved to explain the mysterious goings on in the environment and our lives. We might have grown out of it long ago like we did santa had the rich and powerful not seized it and perpetuated it as a method of controlling the masses.

The 'right to pray' - silently and without interrupting others - should be a basic right that all young students in schools throughout America of all religions should be allowed. Our ignorant Supreme Court, and the ignorant Liberals that run our nation, have deemed that the founding fathers of America were wrong with the 1st Amendment which guarantees freedom of religion (it doesn't say, "EXCEPT in schools!").

It is of sad note that many who attack Islam have been deceived by paid Islamaphobes and their free-lance Islamaphobic dupes. It is my belief that it is OUR responsibility to combat fire (lies & half-truths) with water (truth). I find it counter-productive to attack someone else's religion on the basis of them attacking mine.I only attack the lies and those that deceived them into believing said lies.

Islam is not only a religion, cult, to be more exact, and a governmental system (Sharia Law) based upon the Koran, and everything in the Koran and the Hadiths is the exact opposite of what the bible says...the Mahdi of the Koran is the Antichrist of the bible. Check out Walid Shoebat's youtubes to get a very clear picture of Islam. He was a Muslim terrorist who became a Christian and since 1993 has been trying to inform the UsS of the very real danger of the stealth threat of Islam.

18 If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:

19 Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place;

20 And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard.

21 And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.

Yes, because Christianity is perfect and the Bible teaches love and kindness to everyone. Oh, but you can stone children to death... no big deal or anything.

And to correct you, the crosses are taken away because not all of our service men and women believe in the same faith, as for taking away their pay? You might want to research that one yourself.

Clearly, the so-called "separation of church and state" does not mean "separation of mosque and state." Islam has never contributed one thing to the history, heritage, or culture of the United States except to change the New York City skyline forever and gouge a hole 3,000 souls deep in the heart of America.

Trigonometry, Sine, Tangent, Co-Tangent

The Arabs developed these functions in trigonometry and Ibn Moosaa's work Hisaab-Al Jab-Wal Muqaabala (The Calculation of Integration and Equation) presented 800 examples in the 8th century CE. His work was translated from Arabic into Latin and until the 16th century CE, it was Europe's main textbook on the subject.

His work was translated from Arabic into Latin and until the 16th century CE, it was Europe's main textbook on the subject.

Algebra and Geometry

Muhammad bin Moosaa Al-Khawaarizmi is considered to be one of the founders of Algebra. The word ‘Algorithm’ or 'Algorizm' is a corruption of his name or the name of the town Khwaarizm (Kheva), in what is now Uzbekistan, where he was born. He adopted the use of ‘cipher’ (zero), that was devised in India some centuries earlier, a numeral of fundamental importance, leading up to the so-called arithmetic of positions and the decimal system. The very word ‘zero’ is a derivative of the Arabic ‘sifr’ or ‘cipher’. His pioneering work on the system of numerals is well known as "Algorithm," or "Algorizm." In addition to introducing the Arabic numerals, he developed several arithmetical procedures, including operations on fractions.

Another great mathematician was Omar Khayyaam, who offered to the world geometric and algebraic solutions of the second degree. Naseeruddeen wrote the treatise on quadrilateral trigonometry, as well as plain and spherical geometry.

Physics and Chemistry

Kamaaluddeen examined the refraction of sunlight in raindrops and offered an explanation of the genesis of primary and secondary rainbows. The story of the invention of the pendulum and the presentation of a water clock to Emperor Charlemagne by Haaroon Ar-Rasheed is well known.

The great historian Gibbons wrote in his Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (Volume 5) that the science of chemistry owes its origin and improvements to the Muslims.

Science of Mechanics

The development of the science of mechanics in Islam is an act of genius. Moosaa bin Shaakir described one hundred pieces of mechanical equipment in his book of artifices. Other outstanding Muslim treatises included Al Kitaab Fi Ma`rifat Al-Hiya Al-Handasiyyah (The Book of the Knowledge of Ingenious Geometrical Contrivances) by Abul Fiaz bin Al Raz and Al Kitaab Meezanal-Hikmah (The Book of Balance and Wisdom) by Al-Khazini. He also did work on accurate weighing, and determination of the specific gravity of substances.

Camera Obscura

In the field of optics, Camera Obscura was invented by Ibn Haytham in 1038 CE.

Theory of Relativity

Qaadhi Abu Bakr had developed the theory of relativity in the 8th century CE in terms of time and space by means of mathematical equations and astrophysics. Imagine, Einstein was not even born in the Western world, who propounded the same theory of relativity much later in the 20th century CE.

Geography

As far as geography was concerned, Muslim scientists established that the world was round in the 9th century CE, and the first map of the globe was made during the Caliphate of Ma’moon.

Paper Making

This was one of the earliest skills attained by the Muslims. As early as the 8th century CE, high quality paper was being manufactured in Samarqand. Egypt was known to have its first paper mill in the year 900 CE. The earliest Arabic manuscript written on paper that has been discovered is the Ghareeb Al Hadeeth by Abu ‘Ubayed, dated 837 CE. It can be seen in Holland preserved in the library at the University of Leyden.

First of all let me say that I have no problems with Islam or any other religion. But I believe that if the people of one religion, i.e. Christianity, are not allowed to pray in school then neither should the members of any other religion be given the right to. Allowing this would only be hypocritical and very discriminatory. The law that doesn't allow prayer in schools should include all religions, not singling out one specific religion. Either allow prayer for all or allow prayer for none.
