(Asalaamu alaykum Harrak) -peace be up on you Harrak-

.. wa3alaykum maa zakartum - and up on you be what you mentioned-

you said:

(I'm not preaching my religion)

and you followed saying :

(..am keeping to my salaah and Islam. You should to)

saying you should pray is preaching, the best way to put it could be stating how good prayers is for you without inviting others. How would you feel if a Christian tells you you should accept Jesus! Islam needs not to be preached. Islam has been falsified like other religions have been. The best advise for religioous people I can give is that they can take minimum moral principles from their religion and leave serious matters to the use of intelect, democracy and the public interest. No religions has spoken about the trafic lights!!

I have said this to two Algerians one day and they told me that I was worth being killed. When I grabed my hockey stick both long bearded fat males run away to find the police waiting at the end of the street in one of Canadian cities. Although they were given the choice of either conciliation or charging me with assault as I was holding the stick, I had enough witnessing to bring them to court for death threat. They dropped the charge and were isolated after they became a public scandal..

The point here is that things start with inviting and end with imposing. The same in Muslim states if you preach other religions you get 6 months jail, it should be in the West that who ever systematicaly preaches any religion must get a 6 months time in jail.
