Pardon my ignorance, but is there a difference between Islam and Muslim?Sheepishly,Rimshot
Rimshot, it's the same as the difference between Christianity and Christian, I think. And now I can't remember whether those words warrant a capital letter or not.
I'm not certain that Darren Pattinson warrants his name in capitals.
Muslim is the participle, Islam the infinitive.
I tried speaking Arabic when in Arabic-speaking countries, but I kept running out of phlegm.Islam is the religion, Muslim is the follower.
There, a free religious studies lesson. I may be up my own arse, but I'm good value.And Christopher: his bowling figures were better than Flintoff's or Broad's, and he got as many runs as Vaughan. Small shreds of comfort, I know, but he's clearly no Eric the Eel, as some were predicting.
