    I think I may be. My mother is a converted

    American Muslim, married to an Arabic Muslim man. I have Muslim beliefs but I don't take part in Muslim holidays or the praying. So I guess I'm a "lazy" Muslim? I'm confused. I feel right with the Muslim beliefs but I'm torn because I feel like I'm disrespectful because I do not...

    Imam Ibn Qayyim al-jauziyyah,

    rahimahullaah: Whoever gives up striving completely, his religious motives will become weak and his motive to follow his desires will become strong, but when he trains himself to go against his desires, he can defeat them whenever he wants" (Uddat al-saabireen 1/46)

    Yes, I am Muslim. No,

    I'm not a terrorist. I respect people just as much as others do. I don't support killing other humans. People are not the ones to determine who is worthy of life and who is not. Please consider the feeling of others before saying anything that could might hurt them in a way.

    What Does It Mean to Be Muslim?

              I am a Muslim because I surrender to the will of God.  Muslim, comes from the Arabic root word sa-la-ma which means peace, but it also comes from the verb, as-la-ma to give up, to surrender to God Almighty. ...
