Big, big thanks and shukrans for all the lovely comments. Especially considering how sluggish I've been about updating of late. Insha Allah there will be more posts soon, but this blog will not turn all soppy, I promise.
One of the bad things about blogging is the whole "Than Thou"attitude. You know some bloggers who are cooler than thou, smarter than thou and in the case of religious blogs way more pious and knowledgeable than thou. Unfortunately, such types are not content unless they are inflicting their sense of superiority on someone.
I try be honest on this blog. I listen to music, watch films and tv. I'm not yet the Muslim I'd like to be, but insha Allah I will be one day. Anyone who feels it's their religious duty to tell me otherwise, please find something more constructive to do.
The main reason behind this blog is to give an insight into being a convert (and to rant on about random things). I aware that I have to give a good impression about Islam, but at the same time, I want people to realise that Muslims aren't automatons and we aren't all alike either.
A lot is being said about integration into society. Politicians are trying to turn a highly subjective concept into some standard ideal we all have to match up to. How can you actually judge integration anyway?
We all live in a society, and we should all have the individual choice to participate in that society as we wish.
