    I do find them attractive but man they are ridiculously annoying most of them are so loud. And then the quiet ones are like too quiet, like impossible to strike up a conversation with, even if you know them well. And their accent annoys me too a different level and the fact that their idea of socialising is smoking shish, all day every day kind of pisses me off to.

    Yes very religious and practicing. Very strict, although they've become a lot more lax with me as I've become older and have taken up more responsibilities around the house, running errands, fixing stuff, buying and paying for groceries etc..

    Wth looool how do our accents annoy you? Surely the accents would change depending what part of the country they come from? What would your idea of socialising be then?
    So what exactly are they strict on?

    I don't know, I just find them annoying. I would think so but they don't gujrati girls I've met at home and at uni (opposite sides of the country) are exactly the same in their behaviour and accents and the way they talk.
    I don't have a specific idea of socialising but shisha isn't really my thing, as whenever I seem to go I always seem to find it's filled with chivvy asian males and females, smoking. Like I would like to do different things ranging from going out on a long road trip to staying indoors with a film.
    Everything they are your textbooks strict Asian parents. When I was younger they were very strict on when I could go out to play, who I played with, when I had to be home, where I spent my money. Now they are still kind of strict on the same things but have a lot less power as I'm a lot less dependent on them financially.

    Why do you ask are you a fuji girl? If so I apologise if I offended you.

    Hey ex-muslim here?

    1) Is your Haraam relationship catalysing your crisis of faith?

    2)Did you know TSR has a fairly populated ex-muslim society?
    Would you like a link to it?

    Bit of background.

    Come from a very strict ultra-conservative south Asian Muslim family
    I've memorised the the Qur'an cover to cover
    I'm 19 living away from home term-time (currently at home - fasting)
    Abstain from pork, ham and alcohol and only eat halal meat.
    Do have a non-Muslim girlfriend
    Pray and fast regularly

    Anyway got to go away for a bit so I'll answer the questions when I get back.


    Out of curiosity; were you thought to believe god from an young age? Just jokin' I know the answer.


    If you're questioning your religion; it means you're no longer muslim. If I where you, open up to philosophical enlightenment, make sense of the world in your way and not by someone forcing their beliefs down your throat for which they've zero evidence.

    Depends, since I suppose some that might question their beliefs would still remain whatever religion they're.


    It's just that I think people who question their religion aren't those who're sure about their beliefs, obviously right, but what does that actually mean? It means you're not religious, you can't believe in god and be doubtful( well at least according to holy scriptures and similar material).

    I see what you mean. If you believe in God then you either do or don't there is not half way house.

    How do you separate religion and science? Like do you not try to link one to the other?

    I understand the upsetting family part. I mean my family believe very strongly in the religion to a level where I am not at. If I was to say that I am having doubt or don't believe their immediate thoughts would be of my safety as they would believe I would spend eternity in hell, and I can't imagine putting my family through that.
    I try not to think logicaly about religion. Its the only way i have found another thing i have realised is that there are few if no videos on this topic and the ones that are stray away from the main points.

    I'm sort off in the same situation as you, I'm just so confused about Islam atm; but I have started doing some research so that's a start. I like that you're still praying, fasting, etc...

    If God exists and Islam is true, then do you think you're doing something unislamic by believing in evolution or any other scientific observation that you believe to be true?

    Do you agree that "Alhamdulillah" that all praise and gratitude should be to God, your creator if He exists, whatever the teachings of organized religion?

    How do you think your parents would react if they found out you were questioning your religion? Would they cut you off if you left altogether?

    And do you wear the muslim clothing? I'm sorry, I don't know what its called.
