if i went back to islam i would have to,,

1. give up interacting with females(90% of my friends)
2. stop listening to music (i love music)
3. stop watching tv with women on it (100% of my shows)
4. stop drinking alcohol (i drink at every meal)
5. wear a beard (i do not look good with a beard.)
6. break up with my boyfriend (i am gay and would have to do that Sad)
7. stay celibate my whole life (i have no attraction to girls really so would have to be celibate. no sexual functions at all.)
8. give away my dogs (i have 3 dogs and i LOVE LOVE dogs so much more then you can imagine)
9. not take pictures(pictures are prohibited and i am very much into the arts)
10. stop playing video games(they promote violence and killing)
11. stop masturbation(a little personal i know, but still!)
12. stop eating pork (i love pork)

so i get messages from muslims all the time and they ask "i know you are in limbo but you might as well just pick islam because you have nothing to lose whereas you do not chose islam your eternity is gone." how can one say i have nothing to lose! all 12 of those constitute 90% of my life. more then that! i spend half my day at school and could not hang with any girls. so that is 50%. then music i have to give up. and the arts and painting and tv(so much for NCIS and law and order and the other shows!) then no more shopping because who would i go with!

and people wonder why i make stupid posts so much. because i am in a TERRIBLE SITUATION! if i feel islam is true then i have to give up my whole life. if i give up islam though then i risk eternal hell.

and there are many who say "music is not haram" or that men and women can interact. that would be nice but it is not true. the hadiths are clear. and qu'ran says like 15 times "obey allah and his messenger."

if any of you date you know how good it feels to be with that significant other. how great it is to hug. the pleasure you feel mentally and physically. that soft skin rubbing against your body just gives you this peaceful feeling mentally, while arousing you physically. all your worries are gone and you are in such a bliss.

yet people want me to give ALL that up?

what is the purpose of my life if i do all that? and then my parents will think i am just crazy nuts and my fri3nds would suffer and everything. my poor dogs would have to be given away and my dogs are like my kids. i love them dearly.

so not only will the great feeling of FRIENDSHIP go away(since my friends are girls) but the RELATIONSHIP feeling will and the PET feeling. basically all that i live for. and then some say "oh but you have family still." yea, if i want to spend $10,000 on air tickets to visit my family that lives ALL over. brother in california brother in conneticuit mother and father now in massachusetts aunt and uncle in britian grandpa my dads side in kosovo grandma in albania other aunt and uncle in albania other aunt and uncle in georgia(state) other in canada and lastly other in illinois.

so what keeps me going? my boyfriend. my friends. my pets. music. arts. partying. tv. internet. photography.

and i should give that all up why?

ok sorry i am just ranting because i am in very hard times right now which explains the hiatus.

Dear Ishaq

Good to see you have an "IF" in your title !

You are right in all your points !

and WHY should you "go back"... ?

As we all know, the road goes on, but its forward you should go, not reverse !

I can imagine that it must be quite hard, when you live in an islamic environment, like family, friends, area, city, country... having to pretend, and "act like"...

But, like you say too - why give up life in freedom, and put on the shackles and chains by yourself ?

And re-adopt and adapt to rules from some desert of some other times...

You have smelled the fresh wind and clean air - why go back into a damp and smelly dungeon ?

Stand proud - at least inside yourself !

Hello Shaq

We support as a dear friend whether you decide to leave Islam or stay a Muslim. You're a good human and that's what matters to us.

If you be staying a Muslim makes you healthier, happier and better person then so be it. I highly doubt that though, as by being a Muslim you have to go against your very nature.

Take your time, this is a big decision and one that you don't want to keep revisiting every couple of weeks.

My advice is to keep researching and keep asking questions. Another advice, leave your sexual orientation out of the question for a while and look at Islam from cons and pros point of view.

Please don't think for a second that you're boring people with your questions. This forum is all about questioning, so you're actually doing us all a favor!  Very Happy

Your friend

Eternal hell?  Are you kidding?  Common sense should tell that is a bunch of BS.  What evidence do you have that such a thing exists? Get real, man.
