Definitions Proposed by The Fist
A Muslim by name only. Yes believe in Allah and that Mohammed is the one true prophet but don’t think about it much. You eat anything and drink alcohol. You joke about showing people your prayer room which turns out to be a wine cellar. Women can wear anything. Your kids go to a non-Muslim school and you wouldn’t care who they marry.
You pray a little, fast occasionally and visit the mosque but not every week. Ladies should wear a hijab and kids must marry a Muslim. You are not interested in whether non-Muslims observe the faith and you don’t care about Jews and gays. You have some friends who are non-Muslim.
By the Book Muslim
You observe the doctrines quite strictly. You are offended by non-Muslims who do not observe Islam. Women preferably wear a burqa or a niqab. Blasphemy should be punished. You pray five times a day and you insist that your workplace make special arrangements to cater for your religious needs. You have no non-Muslim friends. You go to the mosque every week. You hate Jews. Your children must go to an Islamic school.
Killing can be ok Muslim
A By the Book Muslim who thinks that in some circumstances suicide bombing of civilian targets to defend Islam can be justified or that honour killings can be justified or that blasphemy warrants a death sentence.
