Should Muslim Manga Cease to exist?

Thu May 30, 2013, 8:50 AM by shsn:iconshsn:
At this moment, there are a very small number of people that help Muslim Manga.  If you want Muslim Manga to continue to be productive, then it is up to you.  You have no one else to blame but yourself if Muslim Manga ceases to exist  If you're interested, go ahead and send a note to Muslim-Manga in order to start helping out. Or fill out this form:  MuslimManga.org/apply (At the bottom of the page, there is the actual application link, but you need to read the information here on this page, or over there, before you fill out the application)

So you're interested in drawing and translating into Spanish.  Is that correct?
I'm sure you can help if you want to :) Help is always appreciated.  With that said, Muslim Manga does have some rules on what type of artwork can be submitted to the group and the helpers try to be strict and not allow anything that goes against the rules.  Regardless of if a person is Muslim or not, they can help, but at the same time, regardless of if a person is or is not a Muslim, their artwork can be rejected if they haven't read the submissions rules. 
But as for helping out, if we need a drawing made for example, we'd make sure to remind you what the rules are, so if you wanted to help by drawing, then you could follow those guidelines we set.
As for translating, I don't really foresee any issues.  And you're welcome to help with it, if you're interested. 
So if you want to help translate into Spanish, that would be great :)

As a Christian, it nice to see artwork where girls aren't sexualized. That one of things I love about Middle East culture. Men and women seem to be very modest. By the way, why do women in your culture where head scarves? Can a woman choose to not where anything on their heads? Do know you any other manga where the girls are modest?

:iconcyprusbeetle:
CyprusBeetle Featured By Owner May 31, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hi!

The headscarf has nothing to do with culture, actually. It is more to do with religion. God has told us in the Qur'an, bible, and Torah, to dress modestly, and not to flaunt your body, and instead, be the best person you can be so that people do not judge you based on your looks, and instead, see you for the person you are inside.

That is why women cover their hair. To prevent themselves from flaunting themselves by making their hair attractive to other people (which is less modest). Women can choose to not wear the head covering, because in the Qur'an, it mentions "There is no compulsion in religion". But it is best to cover :) But no one should be forced to do so.

I do have one last question. Can you own dogs? Some holy leaders say no others, I have heard, say as long as the dog is bathed and their teeth cleaned, they may own one. Others say the dog must have a use, like treating a disability.
Reply
:iconcyprusbeetle:
CyprusBeetle Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Many Muslims will say that you can't own dogs, but they are raised in a culture that also does not accept dogs. Overall, a Muslim can own a dog as long as they are kept clean, and are not living in an area of the house where you pray. 

When people say "dogs must have a use in order to be owned by a muslim" are forgetting a big use for dogs; companionship. Dogs are amazing creatures, and the only creatures in the entire world that can distinctively read human emotions. They were created for us. Man and dog are meant to work together.
