[QUOTE]
How relaxed is your religion? Do you have all the daily observances of Islam?
[/QUOTE]

Islam based on Quran, as opposed to Sunnism and Shiism that are based on Talmudic Hadith and Sharia (laws based on Hadith), is not dogmatic at all. It is in fact very flexible and emphasizes rational thinking as opposed to blind observance of mechanical rituals. As you saw from Islam's definition, it is all between the individual and the God directly. There are no daily observances and certainly none that are to be forced on the individual or society.
