This is an excellent t-shirt and I've been meaning to buy it for a long time now. But the writing at the back is just...irrelevant to wear in a Muslim country, in which I live. I wonder if it would be possible to get it without the writing?

It shouldn't really matter because muslims believe the same thing.

I disagree. Wearing this t-shirt in a Muslim country would be like wearing the Islamic equivalent of this t-shirt (one which said "Quran says this and that..." at the back) in the Bible belt of USA, where there are, let's assume, not many Muslims. It would just be weird. The point is not Bible and Quran sharing similar sentiments, but rather that in their particular contexts those commonalities would not matter. Furthermore, as far as I know, even though Muslims claim to worship the same god as Christians, they nonetheless think that the Bible is altered beyond recognition and therefore it is not the word of god. So the writing at the back (the claims of Bible) would be doubly uninteresting in a Muslim country.
