    >all your conversations with your friends have to do with guys/girls, or movies, or guys/girls in movies.

    >you spend more nights at the club during Ramadan than at a Masjid.

    >you can't remember the last time you asked someone a question about something you didn't understand in Islam.

    >you don't know any people who you can say Salaams to without feeling embarrassed.

    >the feeling that God is watching you in all that you do is never more than a passing thought.

    >you are available to receive phone calls at 2 a.m.

    >your clothes and hair smell of cigarettes on Sunday mornings even though you don't smoke.

    >knowing something is right or wrong and feeling guilty about it does not effect whether you actually do it or not.

    >you gave hope of ever entering Paradise because you don't feel you deserve it after 'all that I have done'.

    >when you want something in your life you fantasize about it and say "I wish!".

    >you can't figure out why you are never truly happy deep in your heart and why nothing good in your life ever seems to last (why does it always have to end?).

    >the happiest day of your life so far was on a Christmas, Valentine, or a dance.

    >you are loneliest when you are sad or when something bad has happened to you (where did all my friends go?).

    >you don't think of the Prophet at least once a day.

    >when you hear of Muslims dying somewhere in the world, you consider it part of 'politics' which you have nothing to do with.

    >your 'best friend' is a person of the opposite gender yet not your husband or wife.

    >you have no motivation to change things in your life.

    >when your faults are pointed out to you, you reply "This is who I am, for better or for worse!".

    >listening to the Quran does not make you feel guilty.

    >you are actually flattered when people on the street stare or ask you out.

    >you friends never object to any of your bad habits or behaviours and vice versa.

    >you don't care whether you go to heaven or hell since no one can really be sure about these things.

    >to you, Islam is just another 'organized institutionalized religion'.

    >you actually agreed with everything your philosophy professor taught in class.

    >you generally feel crappy and often find yourself telling people that.

    >you consider and justify your sins as 'a part of who I am'.

    >you want to travel around the world someday but Makkah is not one of your planned stops.

    >your parents hate you and have said so to you.

    >you read the horoscopes yet have never performed Salat-ul-Istikharah.

    >you have never felt like falling down on your face and crying to Allah.

    >you look down upon people who are more practicing than yourself as 'just mullahs and molvis'.

    >your past bad experiences with some Muslims prevent you from getting closer to Islam and other Muslims.

    assalamu alaikum wr wb

    The biggest would be you know you're in trouble when you read this list and go omg..... i've lived through that, and been through that and even though i've read this a dozen times, i still need to change myself to not find myself in trouble...

    insha'allah. esp the last one has really taken the cake.
    Patience & Understanding is the key to happiness. Is it not time to remember & trust in Allah?

    You are absolutely right. I have to know more about Islam.
    Then have to debate with the non Muslims.But i can discuss
    about real Islam with the Muslim brothers.Who is in the right path
    or not.If i am wrong i have to go in the right path of Islam.Do you
    have any clue to go to the right path?

    Asalamu Alaykum,

    Dear Real Islam,

    I read lots of your posts on this site.
    Most of those are of you asking about real Islam.
    Even you introduced your self as Real Islam.
    You pretend you know some Islam.
    I don’t understand your agenda?
    Real Islam is clear as sun.
    If you want to Understand.
    Please don’t confuse people.




    ---------------------------
    In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

    I swear by the time,
    Most surely man is in loss,
    Except those who believe and do good, and enjoin on each other truth, and enjoin on each other patience.
    (Quran Translation 103 Al-Asr)

    Narrated 'Abdullah: When the following Verse was revealed: "It is those who believe and confuse not their belief with wrong (worshipping others besides Allah.)" (6:83), the companions of Allah's Apostle asked, "Who is amongst us who had not done injustice (wrong)?" Allah revealed: "No doubt, joining others in worship with Allah is a great injustice (wrong) indeed." (31.13)

    (Bukhari)

    It is narrated on the authority of 'Abdullah son of 'Umar that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: (The superstructure of) al-Islam is raised on five (pillars), testifying (the fact) that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is His bondsman and messenger, and the establishment of prayer, payment of Zakat, Pilgrimage to the House (Ka'ba) and the fast of Ramadan. (Muslim)

    It is narrated on the authority of Jabir that a man once said to the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him): Shall I enter Paradise in case I say the obligatory prayers, observe the (fasts) of Ramadan and treat that as lawful which has been made permissible (by the Shari'ah) and deny myself that what is forbidden, and make no addition to it? He (the Holy Prophet) replied in the affirmative. He (the inquirer) said: By Allah, I would add nothing to it. (Muslim)
