Min ka-Muslimiyn li Muslimiyn (from like Muslims to Muslims)

This poem is a lesson I learned from personal experience, primarily to Muslims but it can apply equally well to other religious groups too. The lesson is that in order to follow your religion properly, you have to experiment with it. You have to adapt it to your life, not blindly follow it just because that’s how you’ve been raised. You should question it, understand it in unconventional ways, follow the spirit rather than the letter of the law, even go against tradition & culture regardless of who may hate you for it. Only when you’re living the religion in a way YOU TRULY enjoy, as the characters in this poem have done, will your faith be true and pure.
