If someone does something, and it’s something that the other person isn’t doing, you’re like “oh my god, well done, it’s so great that you’re doing that”. Well, really, that person wants to do that, and if you really want to do that, you can also do that. You’re just not there. Everyone has different journeys in life and people really forget that. Like yes, you might be doing something that I’m not doing, but we didn’t grow up at the same time, we didn’t come from the same womb, we didn’t grow up with the same friends, we didn’t have the same experiences or even the same culture. So you can’t expect someone to make the same choices as you that hasn’t lived the same life as you, the same way you might like chocolate ice cream and I don’t, maybe it’s because I grew up and I had some really bad chocolate ice cream, so people need to just understand that. Everyone has their own journey, everyone has different things that they’re working with, or trying to get through, or trying to understand. I think in this day and age, everyone just tries to fit into a box so much, and I don’t even think it’s just to do with religion, it can even be sexuality, it can even be to do with disorders, it can be anything. Well maybe it’s about focussing on yourself and trying to better yourself and just not worrying about what that other person is doing, you know?”
I think as well you could have somebody who’s a practicing Muslim and does something 100% of the time, exactly as it should be, and you could have another Muslim who does 100%, but then you could ask each Muslim, “who’s the better Muslim?” and that’s when it comes into the human aspect of it, as opposed to just the religious aspect of it, because there’s really two aspects of that, and they’re both going to say “I’m the better Muslim”. Why? Because that’s what you’re saying? Then that’s down to how you’re agreeing, and just as humans how you’re agreeing what is right what is wrong, and I think they both need to go “oh you’re doing 100% time, I’m doing 100% time, oh, we’re both good, we’re both just trying…” But that little bit there is what’s lost. There’s not that “let’s just be even with each other.
Even in life, though, what is good? What is a good person? What makes a bad person? You can’t measure that, it’s not fact, it’s opinion. Therefore, that’s why, for me I don’t even concern myself with certain things anymore because I feel like “who are we to judge?”. As we say, we all believe in God, or we’re from the same religion, so leave it to God to decide what’s right and what’s wrong and that’s not for us to decide on.
