How often do you go to mosque / church / temple?
When was the last time?

Report as

Muslims (as you already know) pray five times a day at the mosque (at least).
Well, since I'm a girl, I don't have to go to the mosque to pray. The only time I usually go to the mosque to pray is during Ramadan for taraweeh. Since taraweeh is long, it feels better praying at the mosque in the women's section.
But I do go to the local mosque to hear Islamic lectures by some scholars. The last time I went was sometime earlier this month.

How do you keep a job ?

No conflict.
As we are Muslims, we have a prayer time during our job, meanly the Dhur Prayer.
All of us stop working and go to mosque for pray.

Do not be sad, and you are a Girl, and it is not obliged to go to the mosque every prayer.
Woman better to pray in her house than mosque.

"blue life"
it is not necessary for women in Islam to go to mosques to say their prayers (except in some cases like Eid prayers). so what you should do is to say prayers five times in your home.

BlueLife, we women get more ajr when praying at home. We're not missing out on anything. I know it feels better praying at the mosque, but that's a different thing.

I go to church three times a week: twice on Sunday and once on Wednesday. Those are the only times that the congregation meets. We don't meet for holidays or stuff like that.

I go quite often to all - and speak with imams, priests, rabbis, and other clerics - to discuss their beliefs, how they arrived at them, and how they maintain them as science relentlessly disproves their assertions (this is not done in any interaction but conversation). To me, I am always amazed at how relatively highly intelligent humans of contentious faiths - can continue to adhere to superstition over evidence. I do not disrespect these people; I do not condescend; I am truly mystified - which is why I find myself seeking those that claim "truth", even when their "truth" is in complete, explicit, contention with other faiths making the same claim, with the same certainty.

The one who reads your words feels like you have studied their religions and proved it to be wrong and they yet still adhere to it ... and feels like science conflict with religion (it does but not with all religions )

Quote :

Faith does not mean - as atheists would often repeat - belief without evidence! This sick extrapolation of fallacy on all faith is a fanatic reaction to the false faith someone like Dawkins may have been brought up on as a child or surrounded with in his society!

The man simply does not know what it's like to be on a true faith which qualifies to be the valid truth in perfect accord with reason and evidence!

( 99 ) And We have certainly revealed to you verses [which are] clear proofs, and no one would deny them except the defiantly disobedient. Quran (2:99)

You seem to be reading into and interpreting my post far from my intention. The assertion " there is no God" is unfalsifiable - study logic and you'll see why this is a ridiculous position to hold - however - the burden of advocating evidence is upon the theist - since the theist is making the assertion. What evidence has any theist offered beyond - "its written in my holy book?" I do hold that faith has significantly helped many people - but it has also has served to diminish one's cherishing of this life - at this moment - in deference to a promised afterlife (there is no religion without the assertion of an afterlife) where we are told, from childhood, is a paradise - all without a shred of evidence. Theists love to define atheists as "believing there is no God" to drum up hateful emotions - when this is actually not the position of an atheist - as Sam Harris has repeatedly said - "everyone knows what it feels like to be an atheist - since each religion claims it is the true word of God - and any other book -religion - is a fraud. Why doesn't the Christian believe the Qur'an is the word of God? They are simply just not convinced - given the lack of evidence. The atheist simply goes one God more."

" study logic and you'll see why this is a ridiculous position to hold "

So, we are illogical people , Thanks ... You are suffering form generalizing , you have been brought in a religion which is filled with illogical things , then you dropped your conclusion on all religions , just as if they were the same .

Haven't i said that above ... you are generalizing , i don't use this circular logic .

" (there is no religion without the assertion of an afterlife) "

So, you came here forced and will depart forced , and the life is just to eat ,drink ,multiply and then die ... is that all of it ?
---
" They are simply just not convinced - given the lack of evidence "

it is not the lack of evidence , it is the inability to accept any evidence , they don't want to be convinced , and confirmation bias plays a role in that .

R: thanks for pointing out how deeply misguided I am and in such suffering - I wasn't aware of that.

It all depends how religious your family is. If they don't force you to go, then you don't have to go, but if they want you to, then why not? It may be kinda boring, but sometimes the speaker is entertaining, and plus, sometimes there's food...

But in Islam our prophet (Mohammad) said in a very beautiful hadeeth, ?The congregational prayer for a man is multiplied over his prayer in his house or market by 25 degrees. This is because if he performs wudhu and perfects his wudhu, then he leaves his house, nothing makes him leave except prayer, he doesn?t take one step except that it raises him one degree and wipes away one of his sins. And if he prayed, the angels will continuously pray for him as long as he is in prayer, saying ?O Allah pray for him, O Allah forgive him, O Allah have mercy on him?, and he will carry on being in a state of prayer as long as he is waiting for the prayer to be held?. (Reported in Bukhari and Muslim).
