    I do TRY, not as hard as I should/can mind you. Living in this created western society it's hard but there's a reason why it's there and I acknowledge it hence why I try.

    Put it this way, I don't do anything Islam forbids(afaik) but I don't do EVERYTHING it deems urrr not forbid.

    Can you tell me why God would give his "perfect" requirements and law in arabic only to one man only in a way that only one man could hear?
    If the koran is indeed gods word and is indeed "perfect" then what possible reason could there be to have hadith unless god did not explain things perfectly and therefore the koran is not perfect?

    Do you read posts? I'm not a scholar, I don't have an explanation for everything. Did you not read what I said about ahadiths?

    Do you know what Fardh and Sunnah are?

    So you have a framework for life from a book that you do not fully understand? If you do not have the answers to all the questions and we do not also have all the questions why does YOUR book? Why do you believe in something you do not understand?

    You probably missed my post about not understanding in ancient arabic context which is a bonus if you do(I only understand maybe 30 -40%), I do understand it in English which will suffice for most people. And no it's not a framework for my life 100% that's pretty impossible in this country and day and age.

    Ok, the only real part I find impossible is praying 5 times a day, mostly cos of either uni or having a job which mind you is quite but not always forgiving when it comes to it. Explains why so many muslims are taxi drivers lol but I wana do more with my life then sitting in a car all day.

    The days when you do not pray 5 times: do you have good or bad luck if not the same?

    What is said of people who do not fulfil god's word?

    All religions I can think of have been defined a subset of people who practise (or claim to practise) that religion.

    Not really, I'm just saying that you can't say that X religion includes beliefs such as Y and Z, if only a tiny minority of the followers of that religion actually do Y and Z. The religion I would say is defined by the shared values of the majority of its followers - regardless of whether that coincides with the X thousand year old texts or not.
