...sigh...I was not, nor am I trying to scare Shawn here.
Ultimately Shawn is deciding. So...all input is important.
If people say I am being negative, well, that is all part of life too. Life is not all about positives here.

@Shawn- the main thing is that you are happy with your decision. It is yours to make. Whatever you decide should not affect anyone here. Keep your mom on your side. She is far more important than anyone else in your life. And really, I only want the best for you. That is why I responded to your post. As other members felt it their duty, so I also felt it mine. I hope you can understand that.

You have now said that your mom took you to the mosque on Tuesday. My concern was that she didn't know you had been. And when you first posted here you were unsure..that is why you came to ask at the forum. And when you said you have been thinking about this for a year that didn't say how much studying or enquiring you had been doing.

Haris has given you sound advice. You can say that I was one of those people he mentioned in his post, who accepted Islam without knowing enough. All I knew then, nearly 7 years ago, was that I wanted to follow the same Islam that the Prophet Muhammad put in place. I struggled for all these years before I realised I wasn't doing that. It makes a big difference. Now I am on a better path.

@ forum members- I have heard here, many times, that it matters not what sect of Islam you belong to..that we are all muslims. So I am announcing that I am no longer a follower of the Sunni Islam. It does not fit well with me. So... with that in mind no more needs to be said on this matter.

I am not bothered by much these days. I feel I am in a far better place. God is with me, and I follow Him. How I choose to do that is very personal and does not need explaining to others. No-one has encouraged/pursuaded me to alter my course..it was all my decision, so I hope no blame is put on any other person.

Salams to all.

Martha,
I did not mean any disrespect toward you, for i understand where you are coming from.  You were simply trying to warn me about the other side of the issue.  Thank you.

To lie/conceal the truth is an act of kufr and you know what that means but there's no harm in lying if its to prevent something bad from happening.

Insha Allah, you shall know as why those verses of Qur'an were revealed. Qur'an is for all times.

I think this is a broad generalization. At timesits ok to lie to people. At times its ok to kill someone, there are specific guidelines for everything.  But this is a sweeping generalization.  Maybe you could have written it as something like:

"I know some Muslims think it is ok to sometimes lie to parents."
