I'm not a Muslim but here is some info from Islamic texts...
The Messenger of Allah said, “Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should not wear silk or gold.” [Ahmad, with a sound chain of narration]
The Beloved of Allah also said, “Whoever of my community dies wearing gold, Allah shall prevent them from wearing it in Paradise.” [Tabarani]
Ali reported that, “The Prophet forbade gold rings.” [Muslim, Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud, Nasa’i, Ibn Maja]
I have seen stuff like this in Pakistan. Its very likely that Barry Soetoro aka Hussein Obama picked it up while spending 3 months there during his student years.
Here's a photo of Obama at Occidental that is included in the story "Did Obama have a "coke nail" at Occidental. It's a pretty good pic of him wearing a ring. I enlarged it using Infranview, and while it doesn't help that the picture is in black and white, it does seem to be similar in thickness and chunkiness as the one shown in your article, especially since the ring seems to be thicker on the back of the band than on the front. This in itself makes the ring "unique".
Might help to confirm your statement "one thing I found fascinating was that Obama had this ring long before it became his wedding ring. That alone was intriguing and it seemed that he got the ring some time around his Occidental years. That he would have it for that long and then use it as his wedding ring seems to indicate the ring means a great deal to him. It makes me wonder where he got it in the first place and if it’s unique or if there are others like it."
And just for the record, I'd say that was a "coke nail", considering all his other nails are trimmed short.
How charming ~
I can recall how in his early years reigning over our Country, he didn't have ANY wedding ring on. Seemed him and the globe trotter were feuding at that time. I don't remember his ring (once he resumed wearing it of course) having a design on it. It seemed to me a solid gold band.
I read Arabic courtesy of the US Army, and I didn't think it said what Corsi said - and would side with Shoebat on this one also.
Would it not be interesting if at the townhall debate tomorrow a person attending followed up their scripted question with "What's the story about the "No God but Allah" quote on your ring, Mr. President?"
Would you folks please understand that Jesus Christ allowed Obama to rise to power. Jesus Christ is now raising up Romney. Why? To separate the righteous from the unrighteous. Beware Obama and his followers after they are swept from power. A demon once cast out seeks a new host to occupy and deceive.
Thanks for the info,have been reading all post was waiting on this post,yes you are correct,nothing happens on earth that was not allowed by Father god,,he definitely needs prayer..Pray that he would have a heart change,When Jesus left earth and ascended into Heaven,We were left with a free will choice,we have to choose whom we wil follow,light or dark,choose whom you will serve this day,choose life,choose Me........prayer changes all situations,Father does hear and honor the prayers of His people,if My people will turn from their wicked ways and repent,then I will hear from Heaven,Then I will bind up their wounds and heal their land.....America has forgotten God,and the Declaration of Independence,and the Constitution were written from Christian and Bible based ideas....Wake Up America.....
Very true on what you say, only a few realize what the scriptures say about how God places leaders in power and then takes them down.
Look if he said he were Muslim and everyone that voted for him knew he was Muslim, then I would have no problem with him wearing a ring that meant something tpo him concerning his faith. Heck, I even wore a trinity ring on my ring finger as my promise ring when I got engaged to my wife. What I have the problem with is his lies. His whole campaign-presidency-campaign is a bunch of lies and deceits! It bugs me that after all this time Obama is an enigma and the MSM could care less!
I want to hear his explanation for wearing a wedding ring long before he was married! I've never known anyone that ever did that.
I wore a trinity ring on my ring finger when I got engaged to my wife, however I transfered it to my other hand when I got married and am now wearing a traditional gold band on my ring finger. So I would agree it is odd to wear an older ring as your wedding ring.
I wonder if Obama was wearing the ring on his ring finger before he got married or if he had it on his other hand and switched when he got married? If it was on his ring finger before he met Michele then I would consider that a big deal.
I think Obama is a Muslim but how about this. The markings on Obamas ring looks like a serpent. In the Bible the serpent is the Devil.
With all the conjecture about his true faith, I do not believe in "coincidences" when it comes to this type of thing. What astronomical odds would it for it have to be for the ring to look this way?
This would continue to explain his odd behavior on "all things Middle Eastern"
Calling Al Gore. Open up that Social Security Lock box, Obama has a ring to put away for safe keeping!
Obama is the biggest fraud ever perpetrated on the United States. I'd still love to know how the man was able to pass an FBI investigation for a simple clearance even. His extremely heavy drug use alone should have disqualified him from a job in the mail room.
He can't qualify for any of this. An FBI agent called into Glenn Beck's show in early 2008. He stated that Obama couldn't get a clearance for anything from the little we knew about him back then. Now we find out that all of what we knew was true. He should be no where near the city of Washington, DC let alone living in the house he occupies.
elected people do not get processed like that.
DNC says hes qualified, nothing FBI or any agency can do. they cannot say you cannot elect him.
funny how the 2008 DNC filings did not use constitutional statement on some filings for him....and RNC are cowards.
Walid Shoebat for those unfamiliar with him, is one of the few Arabic translators that is honest. He spends a great deal of his time listening to the jihadis in the ME and translating their speeches and writings for English speakers. He is an authority on Islam and on Christian eschatology. If you see his articles in places like Frontpage, or WND, pay attention to what he says. He's the kind of Arabic translator that should be working in the US intel community. Unfortunately, he gave his life to Chris; became a real American conservative patriot, loves Israel, and is a rock-solid source of Islamic intel. Because of people like him, the jihadis and the maruna merchants who try to hide in our culture can no longer get away with saying one thing in Arabic and another thing in English.
He's also involved with rescuing Christians from Muslim terror in places like Pakistan and getting them to safe houses.
Walid is constantly under death threats because he is a Muslim apostate. So for the "believers" you may want to remember him, his family and his ministry in your prayers.
One thing is for sure... This ring does NOT persuade Americans that Obama is NOT a Muslim. In fact, just like everything around him, it just adds to the controversy. For a so-called Christian to wear something so compelling to support the argument that he's a Muslim... well, I'd get a different ring.
Great post Scoop!!!
As you mentioned, the question is why would Barry where a ring that even remotely resembles Islam since college, as a wedding ring, and since he professes to be a CHRISTIAN...Didn't he go to Pakistan with his roommate in college?
Walks like a duck, talks like a duck,...
It looks similar to this: http://www.inezstodel.com/en/product/Rings/354/Hindu-Javanese-gold-ring/12th-century.shtml
Hindu Javanese gold ring - kinda goes along with the lucky charms he carries in his pockets.
Whatever it is, it's an ugly design. Don't be surprised if the Administration comes up with a lame a$$ excuse.
I hope we get better pictures of the ring soon. Then we can confirm w certainty that obama is a muslim who worships Allah and not God.
Another point could be made is that it atypical of an AMERICAN man to have a wedding ring like that. American men tend to wear plain gold bands, and any inscriptions are in English on the inside of the band. Both Shoebat and Corsi come to a similar conclusion - the band has some kind of Arabic inscription, and it does show that for Obama, while technically a U.S. citizen, America is not his native country.
You know that by continuing to insist he isn't American you just marginalize yourself, yes? He's an American who holds very anti-establishment values, informed by radical Progressive/Marxists. There are plenty of Americans like that, and yet they are still "native" Americans. Are you that provincial that you aren't aware that in places like New York city or San Francisco that Obama's worldview is as common as peas? Or do you assume everyone else in America is like you and then get surprised when they aren't? Wake up, stop making yourself look the fool.
Normally I would agree with you, but this man cannot prove that he is even an American citizen. Does he even have an American passport? There is no American President that has Obama's world view, not in the past and prayerfully not in the future. His world view is unlike anyone's that has risen this high in American politics. As one of the signs that came out of the tea party movement in Feb. 2009:
That sign has been imbedded in my brain. It is so correct and so soon after his immaculation.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Obama where the Shadows lie.
Well, most of it. Obama wasn't really in Lord of the Rings, although I think I saw him in there somewhere, with a fake Pakistani passport.
