Hey guys!! Hope you’re all keeping well, so this post is a little different and is a little insight into my life and my family 🙂 I usually don’t see many people talking about subjects like this, and I thought you guys might find it interesting to know what it’s like 😊
First off some background information- I myself am muslim, I was born muslim just like my mom, however my dad was initially christian, but converted to islam before he met my mom. However this still meant his siblings ( my aunts and Uncles ) are Christian.
Personally I have no issues with this, and I love having such diversity within my family, as it gives me an open mind when coming across different religions, also christianity and islam are both abrahamic religions so follow similiar ideas and are not too different from each other. My family accept me as a muslim and i accept them as christians.- even when we go over they do things to make us feel more at home, for example when they know we are coming they cook halal meat, so that we can eat freely. and I love them for that 💕.
However having a family with a different religion can have it’s challenges for example on special occasiaons such as christmas. As a muslim I can’t celebrate such an ocassion, however my family still give me presents, hence I also give them some gifts in return, as a form of respect. Wheather this is right or wrong is a matter of opinion of intepretation, however they are my family and for me christmas is just a day of happiness and love. And i don’t need to believe in the religious aspect of it for me to just show respect and enjoy my time with my family. ❤
But to conclude having a family of a different religion is fun and amazing, and I wouldn’t change it for the world. haha😊
