A Self Reflection

I came across an Instagram profile that belongs to an acquaintance of mine. He shared his journey of finding god and his efforts of getting closer to Him. He is a Christian. Do his stories make me feel weird? No, it in fact inspired me to be better with my faith. I almost never get it how some Muslims feel scared they would lose their faith by just wishing friends Merry Christmas when faith should be harmless for anyone to practice and what we need to do is just show respect.

It got me thinking, every religion has their struggle. I was selfish enough to think oh how hard it is to be a Muslim, let alone being a Muslim woman. People tend to judge you in everything you do. The way you dress, the way you speak, the way you bring yourself. A constant question I have in my head all the time: Is this OK to do/wear/say? Not just in the eyes of humans, but ultimately in the eyes of my God. But then again, aren't we all? Even the most ignorant person would have this question cross their minds at times. None of us are quite there yet and we all are struggling just as much. 

Would you ever think that someone with completely different faith brings you so much closer to yours? This is my first. If it takes a Jewish/Buddhist/Christian/Hindu to knock some senses in me, then be it.
