    Well, an extremist these days is someone who prays 5 times a day

    So i guess someone is considered religious if they go to every jummu’ah

    It's not something you can really see

    But here's a question would you consider someone who's great with people and avoids haram religious or someone that ain't so great with people but goes the extra mile on prayers etc more religious??


    Add: tbh I think that avoiding the haram despite in the level of fitnah we face is enough to consider someone religious

    I'd consider the first one a practicing Muslim. What does your relationship with others have to do with religiosity though?

    People call me religious and it makes me feel really hypocritical cus I know I'm not. Imo someone who goes out of their way to study the deen and spread it is what I consider religious.

    @Faith reloaded I'm asking how YOU define religious I already know how society sees practicing Muslims as extremists.

    Religion.
    You think you know more than my scholar's qiyās? He was more learned than you and all other scholars combined. Yeah, the devil was the greatest scholar too and look where his qiyās of fire being better than tīn got him. Sorry.

    You follow your scholar's qiyās, and I will follow the Qur'ān and Sunnah.

    Yeh sis

    I agree

    Someone who goes the extra mile and does much more than the faraidh and is all about the super spiritual life and their character is just amazing

    That's fair to say

    You know people consider anyone religious these days
    a brother whom I never seen in my life before sat next me on the bench outside the masjid and he saw that I had a beard and was wearing a thobe and so that was enough for him to tell me his dark dark secrets and troubles - to tell you the truth he seemed quite desperate to let his feelings out so I had to just listen to him - but the point is that it was only because I looked religious that he could trust me enough to open up like that

    I used to also hate the feeling of people thinking I was so religious it got to the extent once that I would hide my prayers from my family because if I did something incorrect they would always use religion against me and meeting their expectations just felt impossible
    And then I got loads of waswasa and i would sometimes hate doing deeds whilst other people where present, but it was only after hearing the ayat alaysallahu bi ahkamilhakimeen - is Allah not the best of judges? - that things started to change and once I began internalising this message I stopped feeling less burdened by what other people think of how religious I am

    If you think about it our prophet was great with people and had the best of character and that is a sort of proof in and of itself it shows religiousity but then to add to this we know that is it character that weighs heaviest on the scales and the includes relationships within other people.

    Re: What makes someone 'religious'?

    Theres levels of a believer

    Theres

    Muslim- someone who prays 5 times a day tries to be good sometimes goes up and down in sinning

    Mu'min- this is a strong believer religious trying to think about Allah and his imaan life is dictated by religion

    Ihsan- this is someone that worships Allah as if he see Allah when he doesnt their entire life is devoted to Allah and nothing but Islam

    So in conclusion some who tries to avoid major sins and prays salah 5 times a day is a normal muslim

    If you dont even pray salah question yourself whether your muslim or not

    Re: What makes someone 'religious'?

    The answer is in the quran

    1) They pray salah with khushu
    2) They turn away from ill speech
    3) They observe the zakah
    4) They guard their private parts
    5) They keep to their promises and trusts
    6) They strictly maintain their prayers

    أُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْوَارِثُونَ
    الَّذِينَ يَرِثُونَ الْفِرْدَوْسَ هُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ

    Sadly most of us can probably only tick off 2 or 3 of these 6 if we are honest with ourselves. These are the people that Allah described as believers who are successful and the people who will inherit firdaws

    شَكَوْتُ إلَى وَكِيعٍ سُوءَ حِفْظِي
    فَأرْشَدَنِي إلَى تَرْكِ المعَاصي
    وَأخْبَرَنِي بأَنَّ العِلْمَ نُورٌ
    ونورُ الله لا يهدى لعاصي
