You Know Your Islam is in Trouble When...

...the last thing you learn about Islam, the Quran, or Jihad was from CNN
...all your conversations with your friends have to do with guys/girls, or movies, or guys/girls in movies spend more nights at the club during Ramadan than at a Masjid can't remember the last time you asked someone a question about something you didn't understand in find time to watch three movies a week but find yourself too busy to pray Solah regularly
...that Quran translation you were given last 'Eid is still sitting on the top shelf of your bookrack
...the 'inner voice' you hear when you are in complete silence sounds surprisingly similar to the latest hip-hop song you heard don't know any people who you can say Salaams to without feeling embarrassed
...the feeling that God is watching you in all that you do is never more than a passing thought are available to receive phone calls at 2 a.m.
...your clothes and hair smell of cigarettes on Sunday mornings even though you don't smoke
...knowing something is right or wrong and feeling guilty about it does not effect whether you actually do it or not gave hope of ever entering Paradise because you don't feel you deserve it after 'all that I have done
...when you want something in your life you fantasize about it and say "I wish!" can't figure out why you are never truly happy deep in your heart and why nothing good in your life ever seems to last (why does it always have to end?)
...the happiest day of your life so far was on a Christmas, Valentine, or a dance are loneliest when you are sad or when something bad has happened to you (where did all my friends go?) don't think of the Prophet at least once a day
...when you hear of Muslims dying somewhere in the world, you consider it part of 'politics' which you have nothing to do with
...your 'best friend' is a person of the opposite gender yet not your husband or wife have no motivation to change things in your life
...when your faults are pointed out to you, you reply "This is who I am, for better or for worse!"
...listening to the Quran does not make you feel guilty are actually flattered when people on the street stare or ask you out friends never object to any of your bad habits or behaviours and vice versa don't care whether you go to heaven or hell since no one can really be sure about these things you, Islam is just another 'organized institutionalized religion' actually agreed with everything your philosophy professor taught in class generally feel crappy and often find yourself telling people that you consider and justify your sins as 'a part of who I am' want to travel around the world someday but Makkah is not one of your planned stops
...your parents hate you and have said so to you read the horoscopes yet have never performed Salat-ul-Istikharah have never felt like falling down on your face and crying to Allah look down upon people who are more practicing than yourself as 'just mullahs and ustaz'
...your past bad experiences with some Muslims prevent you from getting closer to Islam and other Muslims
