I hate Ramadan and don’t want to fastWatch
I don’t see myself as Muslim. Of course if anyone IRL asked me if I’m Muslim I’d say yes. But that’s just because I come from a Muslim family.
I don’t want to be Muslim nor do I like being Muslim but no one knows that.
I also don’t want to tell my parents and family that I’m not Muslim. They probably wouldn’t be violent against me (although I’m not 100% sure) but it’ll bring more trouble than good.
Being Muslim can be good. I do enjoy did and Muslim cultures can be soo beautiful.
I’m a 17 year old male muslim and I hate fasting. Especially since my exams are here I just don’t wanna fast.
Usually I get £5 a day for food but since it’s Ramadan I don’t get any pocket money so I can’t buy any food.
Sometimes I just eat that fruits my school gives out.
The problem is that this week is a holiday and I’m home all day. I can’t risk being caught eating and I can’t go out since I got no money.
I’m not being forced to fast but it’s like a strong stigma to no fast. Also it’s become like a competition with my sibling and I really don’t want to loose. My parents will also make a big deal out of it If I don’t fast. Even worse if I ‘fast’ and they catch me eating/drinking.
I hate Ramadan so much 😣
But I don’t like how restricting Islam is.
Also, every single country in the world that has a Islamic government is very repressive and violent so it makes me think that somethings wrong.
Also there’s the problem of evil. Why would an all loving god let people go to hell.
Tbh I don’t think the Muslim God or should I say the Abrahamic God is a very nice person. He is narcissistic (as he constantly wants people to pray to him and love him) and he is very violent (mostly talking about all the terrible stuff the god does in the old testament.
I like to think that God should be all loving and kind. That is the kind of God I would look up to. The god Muslims look up to is just not that.
Why would I look up to someone I don’t like. Also for a lot of Muslims. The only reason they pray and do all the Muslim stuff is because they are scared of god and what he’ll do to them in the afterlife. God-fearing is not a good thing. I should love God not fear him and yet in Islam these are the same thing.
Lol this has turnt into a rant.
I can fast. But the fact is I do not want to. I like eating and drinking and don’t want some religion to take these joys away from me.
Also, another reason I don’t want to fast is because I have exams and revision is better when I’m not empty.
Keep your rude comments to yourself next time.
Islam is a beautiful religion and people like you are giving it a bad name.
Shame on you!
I completely agree with you. If you think logically, why would a God that loves you ask you to stay hungry and thirsty all day? Do we need to fast in order to feel compassion for others? To keep our evil deeds in check? I certainly don't. But voicing these opinions just lead to drama.
Allah doesn’t need our fasting he’s not dependent upon us. Therefore you got flawed logic in stating that we fast for Allah. We fast for our ego, our own self.
If you can’t fathom that you won’t possibly understand the basis behind the concept of Ramadhaan itself.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Religion is very easy and whoever overburdens himself in his religion will not be able to continue in that way. So you should not be extremists, but try to be near to perfection and receive the good tidings that you will be rewarded; and gain strength by worshipping in the mornings, the afternoons, and during the last hours of the nights. " (See Fath-ul-Bari, Page 102, Vol 1).
