Hi, I'm a muslim who prays 5 times a day, who read hadiths and listen to lectures by Khalid Yasin now and then. Im a muslim who fast the whole ramadan and try to do good deeds.

Im weightlifting, creating beats/instrumental(music stuff) and try to help at home. I have a good heart and care about everyone, especially my family and mother. Im only seventeen and I live in sweden.

what I've learned so far about Islam is that, you need to do good in life to live a good life. You need to atlest pray 5 times a day to worship the only true God, Allah. That you need to have and share your pure heart to people in life. And must of all, you need to control yourself from doing haram, looking haram or touching haram. am I right?

so the very question is, am I a good muslim? Because I really think and feel that my life is good as a muslim

no one can answer that...which is why no one has. people cant judge you from what u say or what they see. only Allah can. its all in ur intention, if ur doing it for Allah then inshallah he will reward you,but it u r doing it for mere mortals praise then he will also be the one to handle it. but good job, keep up the good work and inshallah it will all work out

thank you brother! It is actually my intention to do all that. I was compering me to the high muslim in Mecca and started to think if I am a good muslim.. even tho I taught I was, I were a bit unsure. But alhamdulillah.. when I saw your answer I felt relieved. Now when I've heard from different people, included you, I feel like a good muslim with no doubt.
