    Right, my question, which may help to answer that same question a little more meaningfully. Please rank these in order of importance to you as a Muslim, most to least, and saying if any are of equal importance:

    The Qur'an
    The prescribed rituals (such as daily prayer and fasting)
    The Hadiths
    The "Five Pillars of Islam"
    Your intuitive personal spirituality/connection with the divine
    The guidance and pronouncements of the clerics
    Five pillars in the Quran?
    There is only one.

    Explain the origins and history behind the Koran/Quran and also Mohammed's history, how long did it take him to channel this information? How many were present with him when he did these channellings, and also how many tribes were there? Upon googling expand on the tribes like Quraysh, Hudhayl, Thaqîf, Hawâzin, Kinânah, Tamîm and Yemen if you are able? Also what does Ahrufs mean?

    I was referring there not to the Quran, but to the five pillars of Islam, just like I said. They're a widely held traditional doctrine within Islam, the faith itself. Many, especially more "orthodox" muslims, would consider the five pillars to be essential to the fulfiment of the faith; whereas a nontraditionalist, mystic, or Quranist (one who rejects traditional interpretations and sects, and focuses on the text of the Qur'an alone) would probably see them as less important or even irrelevant. That's why I'm asking what I am; her stance on these issues and the relative value she gives to each helps to indicate what sort of Muslim she is, which is something I'm curious about. I'll leave the rest to her.

    What is one thing you wish was common knowledge about Islam among society?

    What is something you think people don't normally know about your religious culture? (I'm trying to think of an example.. but, for example, a woman's menstruation is very sacred for Wiccans.. or Mormons have to do some work for 2 years or something of that effect..)
