The Non-Islamic Muslim

Assalamu Alaikum,

The reason for today's blog post is because a few days ago a Muslim brother tweeted the following message in reply to somebody;

"There is no such thing as a NON-ISLAMIC MUSLIM!"

Well I beg to differ.

That comment has played on my mind for a few days ... well, because ... I believe I work with a Non-Islamic Muslim.

She is a born Muslim. However, these are her views;

She says that if I even suggest to her that she wear Hijab she will kill me. In fact, she believes Muslim men should lead by example and wear Hijab, and then she'll consider it.

She says that if she wants to wear a mini skirt at work (which she does, or tight pants) and look pretty in front of others then that is her right to do so.

She does not pray because she does not need to as she has not suffered hardships, and has always had everything she's wanted.

She does not fast during Ramadan because she is not overweight and already maintains a controlled diet of "5-a-day fruit and veg". With regards to charity, she believes it is the governments responsibility to provide for the citizens of their country.

So, do you think she is an Islamic Muslim, or a Non-Islamic Muslim?

It can be about any of the following (for example);

How has Islam been;

Inspirational to you?
A strength for you?
A guide for you?

What is it in Islam that motivates you and keeps you going?
Share your good and bad experiences with others.
Share your thoughts and ideas and opinions on Islam.
Anything else :-)

By submitting your story to me you are accepting that I can share your story (If you wish to remain anonymous then please just say and I will keep your name confidential) with others.

My intention is to create a blog and share YOUR stories in one area for Muslims and non-Muslims to read and bring them closer to Islam.

Inshallah, this idea will become a great success.

I look forward to hearing all about your Islamic experiences.
