this is a salute to cat stevens who is known now as usuf islam!
well i'm not saluting him because he is muslim but because he changed 180''
and now he just cares about children of the world and that what we really have to care about mulsims christians, jews,buddhists, krishnas,zulus,tootsiies,sikhs,....
here some songs written by cat(yusuf):
Oh, they've killed all the Little Ones
While their faces still smiled
With their guns and their fury
They erased their young lives
No longer to laugh
No longer to be a child
Oh, they've killed all the Little Ones
While their faces still smiled

Now they're burying the Little Ones
And making their graves deep
So the world cannot see
That tonight we may sleep
While they wash away the blood
The mothers all weep
Oh, they're burying the Little Ones
And making their graves deep


Yet where will the devils go
When that day comes?
When the angels drag them out
To face The Little Ones


Oh they killed all the Little Ones
With their eyes open wide
There was nothing to help them
On the day that they died


No bed to run under
No cupboard to hide
Oh they've killed all the Little Ones
With their eyes open wide


They'll be raising The Little Ones
With no sin to atone
In the light of high Heaven
They will sit on tall thrones
Where playtime lasts forever
And God's Mercy never ends
They'll be raising the Little Ones
And they'll all be best friends
They'll be raising the Little Ones
And they'll all be best friends


and here is another song by him:
He was a guide for all people
And the mercy to the universe
He was a guide for all people
God's peace and blessings on him

He was a seal of the prophet
(The last breaking the house of prophethood)
The last brick in the house of prophethood
He was the last of the prophets
God's peace and blessings on him

He was a patron of the poor
Always helping widows and orphans
A great patron of the poor
God's peace and blessings on him

He was a striver against evil
And he fought and he won
To give rights all people
God's peace and blessings on him

He was a stranger to this world
For his aim was the hereafter
He kept little for this world
God's peace and blessings on him

Tala'al-Badru 'alayna,
min thaniyyatil-Wada'
wajaba al-shukru 'alayna,
ma da'a lillahi da'

O the White Moon rose over us
From the Valley of Wada'
And we owe it to show gratefulness
Where the call is to Allah

Ayyuha al-mab'uthu fina
ji'ta bi-al-amri al-muta'
Ji'ta sharrafta al-Madinah
marhaban ya khayra da'

O you who were raised amongst us
coming with a work to be obeyed
You have brought to this city nobleness
Welcome! best call to God's way

Tala'al-Badru 'alayna,
min thaniyyatil-Wada'
wajaba al-shukru 'alayna,
ma da'a lillahi da'

He is a follower of that dirty lying disciple of Satan and denies that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

This is an Orthodox Christian baord - Don't post his drivel here!

I feel sorry for him, honestly, he was deceived while he was rather sick and therefore vulnerable.  I actually like some of his pre-Islamic songs, like "Year of the Cat" and "Peace Train", but his conversion to Islam was unfortunate and misguided.

He probably smoked too much of the green weed or maybe chewed too much qat (united should know what that is).

Yeah, Year of the Cat was Al Stewart.

I used to like Cat Stevens' old stuff, too.

He did a beautiful rendition of that old Anglican hymn, Morning Has Broken.

Too bad he went gufi.

I always liked that song of his his, I listened to the wind, to the wind of my soul.   Maybe he'll have a chance to recant before the end and reembrace Christ.

I am sorry but all I can say to this is....Tom don't be a jerk!!!

My God, what is your problem, Tom?

I am sorry but this is the FREE-FOR-ALL board, and United's post was not promoting Islam or attacking Christainity. So where is the offense?

He isn't trying to convert anybody, he isn't being agressive about anything. And my God how proud can you be to curse someone as a disiciple of Satan?! To bad mouth people in such a way?! It is most certainly sad that people deny Christ and lead people astray, but calling them diciples of Satan is a little much.

Be nice! You aren't a moderator...relax!

Really? Well, I could be wrong, but who do you think the last "song" refers to? Who do you think the line "he was the last prophet" is referring to? John the Baptist?

and here is another song by him:

He was a guide for all people
And the mercy to the universe
He was a guide for all people
God's peace and blessings on him

He was a seal of the prophet
(The last breaking the house of prophethood)
The last brick in the house of prophethood
He was the last of the prophets
God's peace and blessings on him

He was a patron of the poor
Always helping widows and orphans
A great patron of the poor
God's peace and blessings on him

He was a striver against evil
And he fought and he won
To give rights all people
God's peace and blessings on him

He was a stranger to this world
For his aim was the hereafter
He kept little for this world
God's peace and blessings on him


And my God how proud can you be to curse someone as a disiciple of Satan?! To bad mouth people in such a way?! It is most certainly sad that people deny Christ and lead people astray, but calling them diciples of Satan is a little much.

Maybe you are confused, I was referring to Mohammed as a disciple of satan, not Cat Stevens.

So that we are clear -- Are you saying that Mohammed was NOT a "disciple of Satan"? 'Cause there certainly is no question in my mind that he was.

You aren't a moderator...relax!

That's true. But everyone needs a little help now and then.  Cool

While our good friend Tom may have said what I was thinking a little more strongly that I would have put it, he's right on.

I also note that a lyric from that song reads "He was a seal of the prophet".  That is blatantly referring to Mohammed.

I agree completely.

Sure he is. IMHO united came here to promote Islam and has done nothing but since his arrival.

It's disgusting.

What are Muslims but disciples of Satan?

How is saying that "a little much?"

Yes. I do tend to write pretty straightforward, and to be truthfull, that HAS caused me some problems on this board. I am much better face to face.

I really am not as bad as I sound. At least I hope not!

Hey United, do you share in Cat Stevens' support for Ayatollah Khomeini's murder decree against author Salman Rushdie?  It's too bad that while he supposedly cares about the Children of the world, he supports murder of certain adults whom he disagrees with.

I am sorry but this is a free for all board, and despite the lyrics....United was not agressive and wasn't try to convert anyone. I think your response was harsh. Gezz Tom between this, your grossly ignornant view of Papal Infallibilty, and your beliefs about Mary, and tradition and Tradition, I really am worried about GOA.

I don't think this thread has anywhere to go but to continue to degenerate, so I'll be closing it now.  If you guys want to flame each other, please do it in a PM.
