How religious are you all? I was raised muslim but rather spiritually. I.e. i can have a drink occasionally, i don’t pray 5 times a day but I know how to pray, I don’t fast during ramadan, I don’t eat pork though..I am an immigrant and that’s the way of life for most is in the country I come from. Anyone can relate?

Not sure if there’s a scale to measure? However, as per Quran and Hadith, we all know certain things are off limit such as drinking and certain things are obligatory such as not missing a prayer. No one’s allowed to judge except Allah and door of repentance is always open. Ramadan is right around the corner iA!




No, I pray that Allah keeps us firm on the right path. This dunya is temporary, do not be fooled by it.


Very relatable. You are not alone.

Own yourself and prioritize treating others around you with kindness and compassion.

Assuming you have that covered, everything else is between you and Allah.

Don’t let the fatwa brigade intimidate you in any way.


I definitely can… I’m 1st generation so have done worse things than you.
I went through a phase searching for my identity and it led me to realize that even though I grew up in a Muslim household, I didn’t know it enough to appreciate it or love it. That has anchored me much more to be practicing.


Maybe the idea is to understand what you are saying in Arabic?


I listened to Sami Yusuf outside of Ramadan once so I’d say prettyyyyy religious


My suggestion would be to slowly learn more and make educated decisions and not go off how you were raised. Of Allah gave you iman that’s the biggest thing in this world my friend, it’s worth pursuing


“I don’t eat pork though”




There are a lot of people who relate to this but they are not in this bowl.

So going back to your initial reply then, highly doubt everyone is fully or perfectly practicing in here

Just curious, what country are you from?

Can definitely relate - people in this bowl should be kinder and encourage progress instead of condemning anything but perfection.

Islam is clear on not drinking but it is also clear on not lying, having a good character etc. which I'm sure everyone of us works on, on an ongoing basis.

So I would say to OP, continue learning more and try to make progress, because the target we should strive towards is pretty clear and having thought it about it critically pretty much everything you are asked to do makes logical sense. Don't be disillusioned by Islam because people on this bowl have no chill

The more religious people are the more judge mental and holier than thou I feel they become

My fiancé moved abroad for med school. Long distance is hard but I love my job, the work, the people, and the culture. I wish there were roles where you could work abroad.

I’m afraid to tell anyone because I want to maximize my time/contribution here. Thoughts? Advice? Does anyone know of good firms that allow abroad work?

Does consulting firms layoff or terminate for performance if macroeconomic conditions and mixed feedback from projects were stated as reasons?

If you can fast tomorrow, fast to expiate sins from the past year and the year to come — and dropping this reminder here by the prophet pbuh:

“The best invocation on the Day of Arafah is the best that I and the Prophets before me recited: ‘La ilaha ill Allahu, wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahu'l-mulku wa lahu'l-hamdu, wa Huwa ala kulli shay'in Qadir.’”
