What qualifications do you have regarding your Islamic knowledge?

ill be honest im just ur basic muslim teen that went mosque and that's about it. however I understand where ur question and concern is coming from. do not worry i won't be mispreading or misguiding any incorrect information. i will only be answering simple questions such as why women have to wear the hijab etc as i know many people would want to know this but are quite shy about it. i like making people understand the beauty of Islam through my words.

May Allah reward you for your intentions. Ameen.

Be careful though sis. Even simple topics such as the Hijaab can delve into something you haven’t been taught/learnt.

Jazakillah Khairan for understanding sis.

Why do muslims not drink alcohol? Alcohol in moderation is useful, even beneficial for health. Alcohol is good.
Numerous studies cite that alcohol is harmful for humans even in small amounts. In 2016 2.8 million deaths were associated with alcohol. Apart from harm to physical health, other harms include the social harm of alcohol and the harmful offshoots that intoxication can bring.

hi so glad u asked this. from my perspective (note that this does not represent the whole of Islam as few different people may have different thoughts) but alcohol is forbidden because 1. it makes u puke/unwell/hangovers 2. ur in the state of mind where you cannot think straight or make decisions properly hence why and I may also be wrong but again this is my opinion, people make regretful decisions and can lead to other things such as unwanted sex,pregnancies, drug use etc now about having it in moderation, how many times have u seen in movies or in real life say only one drink but then end up getting wasted? this is cuz its addictive hence why drugs are not allowed too. hope this made sense and I didn't seem like i was waffling

if you find it “so strict and different” then unfortunately you’re quite uneducated in the religion. as for your comment “since you all come to the UK”, i’m a muslim who was born here. not every muslim immigrated from a different country. there are plenty of UK born muslims.

you’re suggesting that muslims don’t lead a normal lifestyle which is again wrong. i view my lifestyle to be normal.

if you think regularly drinking & having sex is a “normal lifestyle” then i don’t know what to say to you
i know u are tying to help but responding in a negative way will give other people a negative mindset about Islam. we have to respond with peace and kindness because they do not understand our religion as we do.

She has a valid point - people view Islam as this foreign ideology, but Muslims have been here a long time and I would posite that everyone here is a British citizen. We as Muslims also do no favours by saying "Muslims do X; white people do Y" as if white people are not Muslims also. The sister was highlighting that such loaded questions stem from this kind of ignorance that must rightfully be checked. People can respectfully learn, but being babied =/= treating them with manners
