Q: How closely do you follow your Muslim beliefs?

A: As best as I can. You have to understand the fundamentals of Islamic practice. Earlier, I discussed the six pillars of Islamic faith. The five pillars of Islamic practice are to recognize Allah as the one true god and Muhammad as His final prophet, to pray five times a day, fast the month of Ramadan, make pilgrimage to Mecca, and pay the poor-due. So, in terms of the fundamentals of faith and practice, I follow the Islamic pillars. I’m not the best of Muslims and I’m probably not the worst. All in all, I’m a peace-loving, Golden Rule kind of a guy who loves Allah and His messengers (Muhammad, Jesus and Moses included), who strives to serve our creator as best I can through spreading peace, joy, and the truth of Him.
