You're Muslim, Shuja?

Shuja, you call yourself a Muslim, but like all Muslims of your stripes, you're following your heart and your mind, not the QurĂ¡n or your religion as it is layed down by your prophet. Good for you, and too bad all Muslims aren't doing the same thing. Having good Muslim friends throuhout the Gulf and in Pakistan, I know that there are Muslims of different stripes. Those who follow the Qur'an to the tee are dangerous in their thinking and often their actions. Those who don't read the Qur'an literally and follow their instincts/nature, their hearst and minds rather than their holy book are fine people who are a threat to no one - but they're not following the Qur'an nor are they being Islamic. I'm glad you're (apparently) one of the latter.
