I suggest you to ask them "Are you suni?". Suni means that the religion
of Islam that only use Qur'an & Hadits as the main based guidance
of practising Islam. This religion of Islam is Islam that was thought
by prophet Mohammad SAW by the command of GOD (ALLAH SWT).
We do not change or updating the content of the Qur'an & Hadits as
others did such as the religion of Islam in Iran and one of the religion
of Islam in USA called 'Nation of Islam'.
The true religion of Islam
is only following every content of Qur'an and Hadits without changing
them. Some religion of Islam made some changing (like Catholic and
protestan) for their own benefit or their ego in life. Think!
Which GOD that wanted his creation to be astray because of his guidance
such as the Qur'an and Bible. GOD (ALLAH SWT) asked us to follow
his guidance if mankind wanted to have succeed in life. For example,
we assume, we are inventor created TV like GOD created mankind, and we
eventually write guidance to users of TV like GOD created guidance
Moreover, we created guidance to
show to the users how to use and maintain the TV like GOD show us guidance
through Qur'an. In other words, both guidances for TV and mankind
are use for the purpose to save the TV and our body and our soul from destruction.
Thus, it's only You and True GOD know which one of guidances is real.
Be Private, if you do not want
others (eg: friends and parents) to find out your new religion.
At the first year of Prophet Mohammad SAW duty to pass the GOD message
(ALLAH SWT) is by secret, especially of some people that had converted
to Islam at that time. Those people did their duty to Islam such
as prayer by secret. However, it is good to expose your new religion
to others so they may also become muslim like you.
Do not be afraid to convert to Islam,
you've been choosen by ALLAH SWT to become muslim and to be safe from destruction
in this world and fire of hell.
After you become muslim, you must pray
5 times a day (it takes at minimum 5 minutes to pray ) and other 4 pillars of Islam if you wanted to preserve your belief in Islam. THINK! How many hours you have in a day? Total Hours a day = 24 hours. 8 Hours to sleep, 8 Hours to work/study, and 8 Hours spare time. What do you do with your 8 Hours spare time? Use it wisely to pray and other things. It will only take you 25 minutes to pray (if you combined the 5 minutes pray (5 minutes x 5 times pray)). Thus, There is no reason for muslims not to do their obligation to pray unless he/she is sick, has long journey, and other specific reason which you can discuss it with muslim scholars or imam of mosque.
