CULTURAL DIFFERENCES

Introduction

Religion plays an essential role in determining the behavior, interrelations, livelihood
practices of people in society. They are expected to adhere to specific norms and beliefs in
their daily life activities. However, expectations and guidelines differ in different cultures.
This paper seeks to compare and contrast between the catholic and Muslim culture. The
interview will consist of a family member and a second person from another culture.
Reasons for selecting the interviewees
The family member was selected to enhance the analysis of the researcher's culture as
viewed by a second party. The second person was interviewed to enhance a comparison to the
actual learning. The person selected was of Muslim culture and had a significant history of
practicing Islam religion. Responses from a third party will avoid biasness and support
research data and arguments. Foremost, they were selected to collect information not known
by the researcher.
Summary of responses from the interviewees
The interviewees were positively responsive to all questions. They acknowledged the
presence of norms and particular practices in their culture. Each culture had a faculty of
reference that guided their belief system. The Christian interviewee referred to the bible,
which consisted of constitutional moral and legal practices. The Muslim interviewee referred
to the Quran, which guided their daily life and traditions.
The family member described their culture as a system that enhances peace, love, and
coordination in society. They have strict norms that discredited various practices, such as
living together before marriage. They support education and occupational objectives from
both genders. Everyone plays a critical factor in the existence and sustainability of the family.
Muslims believe in death and sin as a cause of human mistakes.

The Muslim interviewee described their culture as a strict baseline that shapes the
moral aspects and mutual respect in society. Men play a crucial role in providing for family
and acquiring education. They get jobs and occupational goals to provide for the family
(Norris and Inglehart, 2012). They have strong beliefs in life after death but do not
acknowledge the role of Jesus in death. The culture highly upholds traditional practices such
as the preservation of the Quran in the Arabic language. However, it is cumbersome since a
person should understand the language before transforming to Islam.
