I am not muslim

My family follows Islam, but I am not Muslim. So I am 16, and when I was aournd 12 I started to really think aobut God and religion. I read the quran in english translation, and I did not feel any connection. And respectfully I saw that many aspects of it did not make sense to me, and I do not agree with many things it says. I started to worry if God would punish me because I did not follow the religion my parents do and if i would go to hell, etcetera, ectetrea... Many books say that one goes to hell if they convert religions. But I'm not sure if I fall under that category, because I never accepted Islam in the first place maturely. Sure, when I was a kid I used to pray namaz and go to sunday school, but I always did it because my parents made me, and I did it to make them happy. But when I matured over time I knew that this wasn't right at all. How can I be called a muslim when I neve truly had faith in the first place? So in my perspective I never was a muslim, but in my parents eyes I am. But anyway, besides that, after I read the quran I was inspired to read the bible (I was 15). The holy bible really awoke my spiritualtiy, and for the first time I actually felt some connnection with God. I started to research about Christianity and pray, and now my relationship with God is as strong as ever. I have accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior, and it is the best decision I have ever made in my life. Love came down and rescued me. I'm not sure what I am asking posting this but I just thought that I would share it as I was scrolling throught the spirituallity forums. But I guess what I am worried about is what my relationship with my family will look like when I reveal to them that I don't follow their religion. I have no regrets but I really do love them and it hurts to think that they'll never want to see me again when they find out. I plan on breaking the news to them once I get engaged to my boyfriend in the future, but at the moment I have to fake being a muslim to please them. I'm not sure what my future will hold, but I trust in God's plan.

May Allah guide you back to Islam. Honestly if you did this to get engaged to your boyfriend of Christian descent yeah the only thing I question is if he truly loved you why did he not convert to Islam. Don’t fake it if your not a Muslim your not a Muslim may the almighty, the merciful and powerful Allah guide you back though strengthening your Iman and Deen.

that "spiritual awakening" you had was Shaytaan playing tricks on you that you fell for. There is still a chance that you can feel close to Allah if you revert back and try to make your deen strong again. If you feel unsure about Islam, watch some speakers corner videos or dr Zakir Naik and insha'allah you will come back to Islam.
In Surah Ghafir, ayah 3, it says "the Forgiver of sin and acceptor of repentence", this shows that anyone can ask Allah for forgiveness if they mean it.
Btw I am not making you revert back to Islam, but what I am trying to say is that I believe it is shaytaan who made your connection to Christianity and you still have a chance with Allah if you try.
You made a few points that are worth mentioning:

"Many books say that one goes to hell if they convert religions. But I'm not sure if I fall under that category, because I never accepted Islam in the first place maturely"

I'm not sure what books you are referring to, but the Qur'an is what we follow in Islam. What you may be referring to is apostacy, which in this case would be abandoning Islam, after have being muslim.

You say that you were never a muslim in the first place, so how could you be punished after death by going to hell? Don't deceive yourself. Even if you didn't convert, you are a disbeliever. You have taken Jesus, peace be upon him, as your God, whilst in Islam, this is detested. Jesus was no more than a prophet of God. He commanded the people to worship God.

Proof of this in the Qur'an:
“O People of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Do not exceed the limits in your religion, nor say of Allaah expect but the truth. The Messiah ‘Eesa (Jesus) son of Maryam (Mary) was (no more than) a Messenger of Allaah and His Word (‘Be!’ and he was), which He bestowed on Maryam, and a spirit created by Him; so believe in Allaah and His Messengers. Say not: ‘Three (trinity)!’ Cease! (it is) better for you. For Allaah is (the only) One (God). Glory be to Him (Far Exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allaah is All-Sufficient as a Disposer of Affairs.”
4:171

And yet again:
And surely they disbelieved when they said: 'Christ, the son of Mary, is indeed God'; whereas Christ had said: 'Children of Israel! Serve Allah, Who is your Lord and my Lord.' Allah has forbidden Paradise to those who associate anything with Him in His divinity and their refuge shall be the Fire.
(5:72)

And yet again:
“… But those who disbelieved will have a drink of boiling fluids and painful torment because they used to disbelieve.”
[10:5]

And yet again:
“… Then as for those who disbelieve, garments of fire will be cut out for them, boiling water will be poured down over their heads.”
[22:19]

And yet again:
“Surely! Those who disbelieved in Our Signs, We shall burn them in Fire. As often as their skins are roasted through, We shall change them for other skins that they may taste the punishment. Truly, Allaah is Ever Most Powerful, All-Wise.”
[al-Nisa’ 4:56]

“If only those who disbelieved knew (the time) when they will not be able to ward off the Fire from their faces, nor from their backs; and they will not be helped.”
[al-Anbiya’ 21:39]


"I'm not sure what I am asking posting this but I just thought that I would share it as I was scrolling throught the spirituallity forums."
"But I guess what I am worried about is what my relationship with my family will look like when I reveal to them that I don't follow their religion."


Now, to conclude, what I have mentioned above is not to force you back to the Truth. Rather, as you know, you have free will to do as you please. Every action in this world has a consequence, which is either good or bad. I have cleared the stance of my religion on you, as you seemed unsure as to what you may be held accountable for in the next life. Whether you believe or disbelieve, I have no worry.

Your family would be disheartened, this there is no doubt. However, if I was your family, I would understand that it is rather your loss. Islam, as the fastest growing religion in the world, will continue moving on, with you or without you. With me, or without me. People are reverting to Islam in masses, from the standard civillians to the celebrities. Islam will keep moving on.

This is a choice you have made at the end of the day. I will finish this with a verse where Almighty God says:
“Say to those who have disbelieved, if they cease (from disbelief) their past will be forgiven. But if they return (thereto), then the examples of those (punished) before them have already preceded (as a warning).”
[al-Anfaal 8:38]

Staying true to yourself is important, and the crisis of faith you can have as teenager doesn’t always translate to the rest of your life, so I want you to remember you have a whole life ahead of you. I think if you truly believe being Christian is who you are, you should be honest. If they condemn you instead of accepting you, then that’s on them. As Muslims, although it is important to teach our children our faith, we can’t force them to be Muslim, Allah (SWT) knows that they tried their best to keep you in their faith, nurturing you in Islam.

Don’t fake being a Muslim, Surah al-Baqarah warns of those who do not truly believe but pretend to do so, you have technically already committed shirk. If you really want to give Islam a chance, talk to your local imam, talk about how you don’t feel faithful, and read books about it. If you have accepted Christianity and want to baptised, go for it, just remember that this isn’t the end of the world (Inshallah) and it doesn’t really matter what anyone else thinks, because it’s your faith and your life and if ever want to return to Islam and Allah (SWT) just know you already have people that have been waiting for your return. I think you believed in Islam more than you let on, especially as worry about how God regards you.

I have to ask, what didn’t make sense in your opinion, because I always thought the logistics of Islam and Christianity were pretty similar. However, Islam and Judaism are even more similar.

I think a lot of it comes down to bad parenting from a religious standpoint
E.g. especially south asian Muslim parents. They are often overly harsh. Whereas Christian faith leaders use play and kindness. Finding common ground

That's something i feel is lacking in the muslim community

I'm intrigued though. Both scriptures are translation with respect to the English language. What specifically drove you away from Quran and to the Bible?

because I know that Islam is the correct religion. If I thought what you said, I would be against the true religion.

there's no such thing as a correct religion, let everyone have their beliefs and what they believe in, if she doesn't feel like a Muslim, and she doesn't feel a connection who are you to say that all other religions are wrong?

By him believing in Islam, know that Islam denounces other religions due to flaws in their beliefs, such as the trinity in Christianity or the polytheistic belief in Hinduism.

Who are you to downplay his conviction in his belief as a Muslim?

Just because you may not believe in a particular religion doesn’t mean people do not perceive there religion to be the correct religion.

I've heard how Islam families disown their family members who become Christian ☹️ I hope you'll be able to tell the gospel to them before, after, or when you leave and then leave it up to God to change their hearts. I'll praying for you sis! God bless and keep you safe, in Jesus name. Amen. :biggrin:

It is a very difficult position you are in, it takes a lot of courage to see the Truth in Christianity amongst a Muslim family. I'll keep you in my prayers that God strengthens you, provides for you and protects you from harm, in Jesus Name. Remember that Jesus is with you throughout this storm in your life and will always protect you. In the vulnerable position you are, it is difficult for me to encourage you to tell your parents the truth, although it may be right. I would encourage you to not listen to the opinions of others but rather find calm in the word of God, I would advise reading the Psalms, the Book of James or 1st Corinthians.
God bless you as you are drawn closer to Him ❤️
Oh yeah, and you should read Psalm 23! It's a very good verse revolving around Jesus, our shepherd keeping us safe. ^v^ Psalm 91 is also another verse that I and my family read mostly daily :P

I started to worry if God would punish me because I did not follow the religion my parents do and if i would go to hell, etcetera, ectetrea... Many books say that one goes to hell if they convert religions. But I'm not sure if I fall under that category, because I never accepted Islam in the first place maturely. Sure, when I was a kid I used to pray namaz and go to sunday school, but I always did it because my parents made me, and I did it to make them happy. But when I matured over time I knew that this wasn't right at all. How can I be called a muslim when I neve truly had faith in the first place? So in my perspective I never was a muslim, but in my parents eyes I am. But anyway, besides that, after I read the quran I was inspired to read the bible (I was 15). The holy bible really awoke my spiritualtiy, and for the first time I actually felt some connnection with God. I started to research about Christianity and pray, and now my relationship with God is as strong as ever. I have accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior, and it is the best decision I have ever made in my life. Love came down and rescued me. I'm not sure what I am asking posting this but I just thought that I would share it as I was scrolling throught the spirituallity forums. But I guess what I am worried about is what my relationship with my family will look like when I reveal to them that I don't follow their religion. I have no regrets but I really do love them and it hurts to think that they'll never want to see me again when they find out. I plan on breaking the news to them once I get engaged to my boyfriend in the future, but at the moment I have to fake being a muslim to please them. I'm not sure what my future will hold, but I trust in God's plan.

Hello fellow sister in Christ! Firstly it's great you have accepted Jesus and you want to know more. Any questions please dm me too and will be keeping you in my prayers. Like you said quite rightly, to trust in God's plan maybe he's put you in this situation for a reason? Either for you to learn something or maybe to be an impact on someone else? What if God is using you to be a light and share His word with your family? Whatever happens and whatever the outcome is remember your reward is in heaven and you will be waiting for the day God says to you "Well done my good and faithful servant"

Keep updating and thought this would be helpful for you as well:

By him believing in Islam, know that Islam denounces other religions due to flaws in their beliefs, such as the trinity in Christianity or the polytheistic belief in Hinduism.
Who are you to downplay his conviction in his belief as a Muslim?
Just because you may not believe in a particular religion doesn’t mean people do not perceive there religion to be the correct religion.

flaws in beliefs? at least get the belief right first, Hinduism is not a polythestic religion.

Just because you aren't educated, don't denounce others
