    Re: Are American muslims too westernized?

    A lot (not all) of people from my generation in Pakistan smoke, drink, go clubbing, have girlfriends, listen to music, support secularism or mixed conservative-liberal values and commit zina and call people 'maulvi' and 'mullah' derogatorily if they speak out. Whereas here in the West a lot of people in my generation are attached to the masjids and the deen and speak of jihad and the mujahideen and observe hijab.

        I don't think there's a written rule anywhere that accepts our preconceived notions of which nation contains the most practising Muslims.

        Take for example--

        A) One group could be praying 4 times a day of Salah BUT many would assume they pray 5 times a day.

        B) One group could be praying 5 times a day of Salah and drink a bottle of whisky every night openly.

        Who is more practising?

        According to our preconceived notions, A.

          I'd say they are to be fair
          Just my observation

          Compared to UK Muslims, I'd defineitly say American Muslims are much more westernized.

          What can u expect tho? Amercia is the pillar of capitalism and serves as the birth of Western ideals. No wonder

            From what I've experienced, most of them are really much westernized!

                    it is mindboggling that a simple question is asked and the very victims of the ideology he asked about are clueless of the influences their society has had on them

                    when someone asks, are muslims too westernized, he is not asking if being born in a certain area has affected you, of course it has

                    but the implication is that is this effect affecting your Islam, and of course it is

                    from birth (baby showers, complete bid'a and imitation of the kuffar) to the general style of dress, to the abject disregard of the plight of muslims all over the world, to the adherence to patriotic ideology (as exemplified by the muslmmatters piece) to our attitudes about jihad, the mujahideen, female circumcision, attitudes about marriage, conduct before marriage, conduct in a marriage, or if you are getting a "real (read state-sanctioned) marriage"

                    the purchasing of a house on riba, credit cards, health insurance, life insurance, car insurance

                    dating, NOT dating, tolerance of homosexuality, tolerance of baby's out of wedlock, etc

                    all of this is how westernized muslims in the west have become, and this is not to say that the muslims in the east are not becoming westernized, too many muslims in the east yearn to be like americans and europeans,

                    so its not whether you were born in california or new york, but how much being surrounded by the west has corrupted your Islam

                      Well there is some good about being Western (I dont believe in the dichotomy of Muslim VS Western).

                      I.E neat and tidy streets with relitively efficient administrative departments, less corruption, good education, good treatment of animals, not throwing garbage everywhere

                        I agree with everything AbuM said except the style of dress. Hijab in different countries comes in tons of different styles, as does men's dress, depending on culture. And the arabs dressed they way they did long before Islaam was revealed there.

                        But letting western ideals seep into ourselves until we show nationalism and racism, and support kuffar armies and curse and slander the mujahideen, do nothing to help the muslims or reject that they are suffering, practice haraam things - like riba, dating, music, christian religious practices and holidays - without fear.. that is westernization. And in some cases nifaq and apostasy.

                          Less corruption in America, really? Perhaps you shuld educate yourself as to the causes of the financial crisis and the rampant corruption which went right to the elected officials

                                Westernized? If Americans are diluted what about the Europeans? How many of them can read and understand the quran?
