  1. I think Muslims should let off their culture when they’re around converts because it’s only Islam which unites us so if one tends to follow more his culture than his religion it would be very problematic when dealing with converts. Also mosques in the West should be ‘naturalised’ into the society and be able to serve the people from the society not just the Arab community. How can a non-Muslim or a recent convert learn about Islam in a mosque where everyone is speaking Arabic, all the books are in Arabic and the sheikh doesn’t even speak English.
  2. Well some challenges include: 1. Being judged by born Muslims over doing something haram that you weren’t aware of in the first place 2. Not being able to understand a single word in the Friday sermon or whenever the sheikh gives a lecture as these are in Arabic even though we live in an English speaking country. And everyone just expects you to know Arabic 3. Feeling odd when hanging out with people of the mosque when they start speaking in Arabic among themselves and making non Arabic speakers feel left out 4. Very hard to get married to a born Muslim for converts as parents think we’re too westernised for their sons/daughters even though their sons/daughters themselves have lived in the West as well. The Shia community has a long way to go for changes, it doesn’t really support converts and this should be a priority if we want people to come to Islam.

    What’s the logic behind having a beard?

    But shaving the armpit hair looks cleaner doesn’t it rather than trimming

    Ye then it’s logical to shave one’s beard since it’s cleaner just like having to shave armpit hair to look cleaner

    I don’t think he looks weird, I think whether a beard looks good on man or not depends a lot on culture, in my culture (Hispanic) the beard is seen as dirty and shaving the beard is part of being “clean”, even our grandmothers, mothers, sisters and wives tell us to shave always

    What’s the logic behind having a beard?

    That’s a good reason but I wonder why in Islam men have to have a beard in order to be distinguished from women as it is so easy to know if someone’s a man without the need of a beard
