The Sexual Politics of Punctuation: Rules for Text Messaging

...how's that for the title of a white paper on dating? Or maybe a book chapter, or perhaps a book in its own right. Based on my completely unscientific study of approximately N=30 text messages exchanged between myself and [wouldn't you like to know] #1 and #2, I think there is enough for quite the rant. Exclamation points, emoticons, and interchanging abbreviations can be horribly frustrating. And can make me doubt your intelligence.

More on this later.

Good afternoon

[url=http://www.internetmosque.net ] audio Explanation of the English only Quran (for the first time on the internet) [/url]


"What about Muslim women ?"

Islam sees a woman, whether single or married, as an individual in her own right, with the right to own and dispose of her property and earnings. A marriage dowry is given by the groom to the bride for her own personal use, and she keeps her own family name rather than taking her husband's.

Both men and women are expected to dress in a way which is modest and dignified; the traditions of female dress found in some Muslim countries are often the expression of local customs.

The Messenger of God said:

'The most perfect in faith amongst believers is he who is best in manner and kindest to his wife.'
