    I would like to know the opinion on the above question from fellow forum members who have daily interaction with people from followers of Islam religion. As we all know that U.N.O. has accepted PM Modiji's suggestion to observe one day as International Yoga day. How will the countries of predominantly Muslim population observe this "Yoga Day"? Are we going to see the Fatwa's being issued from the "Mullahs" of the world?

    Yoga may not find acceptance in Islam however it is being practised in our neighbouring Islamic country. It is also finding takers in other muslim countries despite fatwas.

    I hope this practise will spread and heal the wounded souls by bringing them peace. When I look back and stated in my previous posts that the "Whole World Will knock the doors of India" is becoming reality. I also saw a video where as Indian Embassy in Egypt offers Yoga lesson on their compound.

    OK long story short..

    Me: Do yoga it is good for health,especially for girl's body
    Indonesian girl:Time/Teacher is not available
    Me: Watch utube or Online books.They are enough and that too yoga has 0 side effects
    She:Umm.... this that

    Finally, she knows Yoga is Hindu way of life.She won't do yoga like many muslims.May be few muslims are doing but end of the day I know few muslims eat PORK also.

    Note:She is very liberal hijabi :p

    The fact of the matter is that individuals will do what touches them at the basic level. Yoga means to "join", to "unite", the union of body and soul. If at the ether and physical level yoga helps humans to join together their missing parts it will always find practitioners. Fatwas are made to be disobeyed, they are somewhat like forbidden fruit, they make the banned thing even more desirable.

    I know,but u can't took away hindu roots in yoga.Even xians(few Right Wing) are try to ban it anyway they will fail.

    AFAIK muslims are in HOLE already and still digging :lol:

    Yoga has full craze in west'n countries.Even Chinese also following it.Better concentrate on rest of civilized world. 5.4 bn people is not a small market to expand.

    Its the other way round. Because they have an issue with everything they keep drawing attention to it. The rest of the world accepts it as exercise and follows it. Muslims are forced to follow only what the Quran states as acceptable. Everything else falls in the realm of Haram for them. Its difficult to live a life with minimal choices. That's why they are always :fencing:

    Muslims arent the only ones insecure about this, Christians too have some issues with Yoga.

    So now as usual they are trying to disconnect/appropriate Yoga with "Christian Yoga" or with replacing the original names/spiritual concepts with other things.
