Thats cool man... As long as we can be civil and respectful to each other its all good In today's day and age there's an over supply of everything. Over and above all religions, classes and races the most important thing is that we are mutually respectful to each other. Just because we all have differences does not mean we cant be respectful to one another (I am not saying u are... Just speaking generally)I generally pray to give thanks, not to ask for anything and as for guidance, I have yet to be guided in the wrong direction and have never had the slightest hint that I should look at converting
Thank you for your concern though.
Talking about your prayers, is it true that some Muslims rub the spot on their forehead that touches the carpet with sandpaper in order to get the whole pious look
As for the forehead mark... We refer to it as the "Namaz Mark"... Most of the people I know who have them is due to their prayers causing the mark on their forehead (wear and tear ). As for people who intentionally set out doing it I have no clue... It's possible because I've heard of people do far stranger things... lol
