    If I had to label myself religiously I'd say Muslim. (I'm new to Islam, and I used to be one of Jehovah's Witnesses.) Are there any Muslims here?

    Yes, there are several muslim contributors on the forum. I'm not one of them though.

    Interesting that you went from a Jehovah's Witness to embracing Islam. That must be fairly unusual, I should think.

    There are some things I value highly. If one was in an ironic mood, you might even say I value these things "religiously" ;) :

    - the golden rule
    - critical thinking (logic, evidence, and so on)

    I think you can get pretty far with such a short list..

    “Used to be”, huh?
    Did you progress to the point where you had dedicated your life to Jehovah & gotten baptized?

    BTW, I’m one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. (I think you knew that.)

    Religion:
    Baha'i
    I am a follower of Baha'u'llah, who was raised as a Muslim. After He received His Revelation from God He broke away from Islam and revealed new teachings and laws, and eventually a new religion called the Baha'i Faith was established in His name.

    So one could say that the Baha'i Faith grew out of Islam although it is a separate religion, since Baha'u'llah was a new Messenger of God who received a new Revelation from God, just like all the Messengers who preceded Him.

    You’d be surprised how many folks cannot figure that out despite my screen name, my avatar, the Hebrew words, and my religion listed as Judaism.
