I agree, but, Allah is never confused, only some people who cannot state or
decide if they are Muslim or not? Nonetheless, Allah will eventually judge
us all, Muslim or non-Muslim, alike.
However, I would anticipate that most Muslims, identify themselves as being
such, and would consider the reverse, as a "deep identity crisis", for if
one, even for a moment, entertained such doubts about one's Muslim status or
Muslimhood: wouldn't this automatically lead them to a crisis of "faith" in
Islam? Why anyone can't logically commit themselves to either being a
believer or a non-believer, without equivocation, is beyond my ken. It's
probably why I frequently fail to "understand" your communications (even
without the overriding: "... neither East nor West", as the Arab proverb
What more could be said, and, if I said it, would it make any difference?
