Is it weird for me to use the Arabic terms in referring to God (Allah) and thanks and stuff because I'm not muslim yet? I really worry about misrepresenting myself in this way because I'm afraid that out of my ignorance I will do something wrong/incorrect and people will attribute it to a muslim, which I am not yet. I understand that even as a muslim I will most likely make mistakes because I am human, but I REALLY don't want to give someone the wrong impression here.
I have a lot of muslim friends and I have picked up a lot of the Islamic phrases that go along (Subhana Allah, Insha'Allah, alhamdulillah, etc.) and I think them in my head almost constantly, but I don't say them out loud often (except around my closest friends) and I don't type them here. I type out the English equivalent in most cases. Like I said before, I'm afraid of misrepresenting myself and this beautiful faith.
Am I making a big thing out of nothing? Please let me know if you think I'm being silly or if you understand what I'm saying... I'm just feeling a bit in between stages and I'm not really sure how to proceed.
Thank you and God Bless! JazakAllah Khair!
