2022.01.24 19:22 inthecity47 Does Islam encourage followers to really be good people?
[Ive just had this post removed from the muslim subreddit for no apparent reason. I’m coming to this subreddit in hopes of gaining some context into the (ex) muslim perspective. especially those of you who can comment on the lies some followers tell themselves to consolidate the morally perfect self image they have]
I’ve always wondered whether it was for cultural or religious reasons that a large amount of middle eastern/south asian muslims are incredibly hateful,misogynistic, and racist.
As someone who isn’t white, nor muslim. I’ve had many uncomfortable encounters with naive people who have tried to steer me away from learning about Islam, as if I am unworthy of it because of the colour of my skin. I am part Jamaican and Iraqi but cannot understand Arabic.
To reiterate, respectfully, I am not asking for a verbatim account of khutbatu wida or the life of Bilal. I am only looking for an answer as to why some muslims of particular demographs are insulted by the idea of someone of another race seeking refuge in Islam. Secondly, I ask are you yourself a good person. I want to ask this because for the past 3 years I have taught myself about Islam, confided in muslim friends, even tried praying among other things etc. However, there’s still many things that pull me away from taking my shahada.
One of these things is why, like the catholic church, a great ordeal of muslims claim to be moral figures of piety and discipline but behind closed doors are just as bad as the sinners they condemn?
I’ve started to read the Qur’an and teach myself Arabic, I’m well aware that my inability to read (and more importantly, comprehend) the holy book means my understanding of its meaning is limited to subjective interpretation. Looking at verse 29 of Surat Al Imran, it’s implied that Allah knows every ounce of your heart (presumably thoughts too).
To carry on with my initial question I ask, if you as a muslim carry hate in your heart for another person with no rationale other than socio-political reasons, to the extent at which you’d wish death/misfortune on these people. Are you really a good muslim because you pray salat and avoid indulgence? When fundamentally anyone of any religion/background/belief would consider you a horrible person.

2022.01.24 19:22 Sad-Paleontologist54 It has been such a long time but I still feel obsessed with my narc ex
I broke up with him in 2017, he somehow kept me under his finger and wanting to see him. But also intermittently ignoring me (oh that tactic of abuse).
He moved, but still contacted me and ignored me intermittently. He would fly me out there to visit him at least once a year and after I would get home like a week later start ignoring me.
Most recently he has been love bombing me after me not speaking to him for about a year. Promising so much and wanting me to move in with him. Come to find out he has been courting and now dating another woman (no surprise but it still kind of hurt).
My trauma bond is so strong and I don't know what to do. I've tried therapy but it's so hard to get a therapist where I am let alone one year understands narc behavior and effects.
-Has anyone else been tied up like this with their narc for so long? -Do you feel like you're obsessed with them from a "normal" person's point of view? -Any advice, wisdom,help,books,online resources

2022.01.24 19:22 arafhunter New Fenix PD36R - loose side button
I’ve used a PD35 v1 for about 8 year’s for front line duties. It’s taken a real beating and I decided it was time for new one. I decided on the PD36R because it was on Amazon for a great price, USB C rechargeable and the PD35 always felt very high quality.
But I’m feeling a little disappointed. PD36R is too shiny and feels and looks a bit cheap compared to the pd35, IMO.
But the main issue I have is the side button being loose. Ours anyone else’s like this or do I need to return it?

2022.01.24 19:22 burntsiena77 Rad tech interview
Hi! I’m a college student in a careers course and I chose to research the career of radiologist technician. I have to interview a radiologist technician for the presentation. Where can I go to contact a rad tech that would be willing to answer a few questions about your career? Also, if you are a rad tech would you be willing to give me your number via DM so I can ask some questions? You don’t have to provide your name but you answering my questions would be greatly appreciated!!!
