I'm Muslim and I believe in what soos does. Overall most Muslims have similar core beliefs; but peripheral beliefs and practices can vary quite widely. Traditionally in Sunni Islam there have been 4 schools of thought; but I follow all of them depending on which has the most evidence. I follow scholars who strive to take evidences from and follow the first three generations of early Muslims in their interpretation of the Qur'an and other religious texts. We believe the Qur'an is the direct speech of Allaah and is not created; and believe in all Allaah's names and attributes as described without trying to intepret them; add to them or say they are metaphorical.

The scholars I follow reject terrorism and extremism in all its forms and warn against it strongly.

Also Muslims believe Jesus peace be upon Him is the true Messiah; and address him as such 'Maseeh' is the term in Arabic; we believe he will return to fight the anti-christ in the end times and that he didn't die but was substituted on the cross with a likeness and taken up to the heavens alive.

I'm a convert to Islam also but have been Muslim for 14 years now and converted while at school and living in an area with very few Muslims. Interestingly very recently I have found I have Muslim ancestry many centuries ago, which is weird as I know some other converts who have found similar. I do attend the mosque, though not often as its difficult with the kids; and the mosques I attend have men and women all in one room for the prayer (for talks etc they may have different facilities); but women at the back as we believe this is the way it was with the early Muslims.

I'm a total atheist. while I do believe in the afterlife, I don't believe in any way shape or form in a deity or conscious being that created us. it's not logical to me, plus there is soooooooo much evidence to the contrary. evolution for example is FACT.

I'm a christadelphian. I love my religion. We believe that there is only one God who is the all powerful and Creator of all. Jesus is his son that was born into the world and tempted as we were and died for us having a hope of eternal salvation. We read the Bible daily by a reading plan, do in-depth studies of the Bible. We have meeting on Sunday and midweek Bible study with the ecclesia as a whole. Also for the younger adults and teens we have another study night we attend as well. We try our hardest to live as Christ did but know we all fall short daily buy luckily we have a loving father who forgives us for our sins through repentance and prayer and a strong faith. We believe Jesus will come back to the earth and there will be the judgment of the living and the dead of those who are responsible. I could go on and on but I must run and make dinner now!

My religion is Islam (I am a Muslim).

In some ways I can say that I am an agnostic Muslim in the sense that I do believe in its principles and way of worship but can't say that I know it to be the ultimate truth. There might be so many different ways to follow God's will. We just need to tap into our nature state it and eliminate everything else. I choose Islam to help me do that because the truth in Islam seems to be purer to me than any other religion I learned about.

I get inspiration other religions though that I feel do not at all contradict Islam like the Eightfold Path to Enlightenment for Buddhists or reading some of the Hidden Words of Bahaullah for Bahais or just thinking "What would God want me to do?" which is not unlike WWJD?

In the end Islam is the religion that allows me to be spiritual in the way I want/need to be and brings the right balance between this life and the next. It is the middle way.
