Let's all struggle together

I kind of want this to be a tag. For everyone who might have a moment and a blog.

What is your biggest struggle in Islam?
And for non-Muslims, your biggest struggle in morality in general?

I will start: My biggest struggles are marriage-related. To be more specific and to single one thing out, it's my anger. I sometimes do not act like I know I should with my husband and so I try to work on that. I want to be a better wife, and it's really really difficult for me.

Who can relate? And who will accept this "tag"?

It's other Muslims, for those who read my blog it's no surprise. Life with Dh is becoming an on and off struggle, sometimes he's there most times he's not....it's a loosing battle

If you are asking for the biggest struggle in Islam, I would say dealing with other people.

If you like I could be more specific. Maybe I will write about it. Hmmmm

If you are talking about struggle in general, marriage is definately high on the list. Humdullah I am a lot better, but I used to be very angry too and I will not comment here about it, but if you want to talk send me an email. Trsut me dear, you are not alone, and I used to and sometimes still have one hot temper.

Mwah :)

I meant in Islam, yes. Like salat for some people, etc. Or dealing with people in an Islamic manner. A personal struggle. I'm not Muslim so I was answering the second question more. And in an Islamic way still since most Muslims would see me as making enough effort in this marriage... It is good to know how difficult marriage is for others though, even though it sucks that it is the same difficult thing for everyone.

My biggest struggle in Islam is dealing with other people.. non Muslims mostly who really hate you for who you are. I live in New England so its pretty much ok here but I would hate to be in the midwest or the bible belt. I've encountered people online like that and they are just plain mean. I also struggle with people who are Muslim but don't act like it. It just makes me sad I guess.

For me the biggest struggle is differentiating between Culture and Islam and more importantly dealing with the Muslims who don't know the difference.

I did the tag on my blog :)

Life is always a struggle! I like that you are trying to bring things out into the open! I think we can all learn from each other!

I think I'll do a blog post on this one in the future.

For right now I struggle with the prayers...to keep them all and in a timely manner.

It was following our chat the other day! :) Life really is a struggle. I find myself writing this word a lot lately! (my latest post, too)

For me the biggest struggle is other Muslims, and the negative image they give of Islam. Also the fact that many Muslims these days think that they have the right to judge other Muslims on how "religious" they are, even though clearly that should be up to God.

Within the religion itself, I always had trouble with the verses of the Qur'an and hadith dealing with polygamy. Outside the Qur'an, I definitely have a BIG issue with the patriarchal sheikhs and imams who are ruining Islam just to make sure women continue to be oppressed.

Candice said...

Thanks for your comment. I managed to make my peace with polygamy, but I have a bit of a different view (not much different) that most Muslims.
And I totally agree with your last struggle...
