    Hi! I have a question for you.
    As a person of religion, how do you keep your faith in check? And since you're born Muslim, how do you know, in the end, that Islam is the right religion for you?
    Okay, I lied. It's actually more than one question.

    honestly I did ask those questions to myself before this...
    thus, in 2007-2010, I began my searching
    I joined many classes of comparative religion
    I studied about Hindu, Buddha, Christian, Jews..
    Studied bible
    I attend classes and listen to debate between religion
    I took informal classes and did take formal classes
    I did discuss with non muslim
    Its a long journey.....
    and finally today I know I'm on the right track
    My advice, don't trust me.. You must seek the truth on your own, with your own eyes and ears, with your own hands... ofcourse with your own heart

    I get that, though. I find that all religions, one way or another, are judgemental and rather flawed.
    Let's say
    I've been to a Mormon Church, (didn't like it btw, I find that their hospitality is SO weird. Too friendly that it's creepy) and all of them are saying that Heavenly Father helps them and showed them the way.
    Went to a mosque and they have the same story, too.
    It's like... Holy shit, everyone has a story to tell.
    However, I do respect people's belief, though.
    It's just that, it amazes me how people can finally choose their religions and put all of their faith in it and become devout.

    Say, I think I'm Muslim because I am born a Muslim. But it seems like Muslim people are quick to judge that I grow to push the religion away.
    It seems like it is useless to follow a religion where the believers shun you for telling them who you are. And they hate you for that.
    I don't want to follow a religion that teaches its followers to pass judgment.
    It's the same as Christianity, they do the same.

    Certain branches of Buddhism are like that, too. But most of them are so accepting.
    It struck me as, Gosh, this world sure has a lot of hatred going on.
    And mostly stem from religions.
    So, that's why I asked you. How do you stick with Islam?
    Considering how crazy and extreme most of the followers are.
    Sorry for the long rambling!

    As a comparative religion's student, we had a lot of questions. Some orang alim ( no matter which religion) become angry when we asked them very precise questions.. They will said "Derhaka!"
    But for me, if this is something that I am going to die for, there should be VERY STRONG PROOF for me to stay.

    So I keep on asking, reading and asking, reading...
    I still have a bible in my house.. some people (Muslims) shocked to find out it on my open cabinet in the living room
    they said "You touch it! You read it! You will get lost"
  • B

    Typical Muslims, unfortunately.
    OMGOSHIMGONNAFREAKOUTNOW, you have a bible!

    My answer " If I already know the flaws and I already know the truth, how can I lost? We are scared because we don't know..
  • B

    See, that's what I don't like about Muslims, especially Malaysians. They always judge.

    Human are not perfect.. However after a few minutes chit chat, they started to realise.. and started to study
    Knowledge is power!
  • B

    Some of them. Not all. Few are willing to learn. Most are just ignorant.
    Maybe I'm still searching for proof.
    Or something

    There's a verse 'La iqro ha fiddin' means for those who are not a muslim 'there's no 'paksaan' in religion ...

  • B

    However, she's okay that I am trying to find the some kind of soul searching to strengthen my spiritual root.
    That's true.
