These are things i am:
I watch tv shows, movies, documentries, sports , news etc. ALL western. I love listening to music of all kinds and I playing my guitar and piano.
I am also a support of science and things such as theory of evolution or any other scientific theory of the day.
I believe in equal rights of women and men but i do understand that women are the care takers and men are the providers.
I belive that islamic law/shaira law on running governments or states should be ended. I believe in a separation of church and state or in our case mosque and the state. I believe in democracy and trying out new political and economic system which truly create wealth for all.
I believe that countries SHOULD have a secular law which provides equal rights to all and not one group. Therefore i think in a Muslim country GAY people should be allowed to "marry" each other, abortion should be allowed etc but i know these people who commit such acts are not Muslims and this marriage or act cant be recognized by Islam.
Reading so far down the list do you guys see where i am going with this. I am the most Liberal muslim you can find. LOL. But let me tell you, I never miss reading the namaz, roza etc and i always to treat people with respect and love no matter what. I would even like to perform blade matam in muhhram.
So i am a mixed bag. Am i a muslim? ( in your opinion) and which of the following beliefs stated above do you guys disagree with?
You are Muslim if you believe Allah is one , and in his meesengers. Whether or not you are a good Muslim is not up to any person to judge, however if you feel you are not a good Muslim you should study Islam more and try to change your behavior.
