okay would you consider this as offensive;

if someone you knew was trying to tell you about Islam and said:

''If you're a Muslim then you should know that this life is temporary we should be preparing for the afterlife''


on the topic of time/having nothing to do/being bored...

no not realy offending , he/she is remindin me so i appreciate that even if there is a lil exaggeration..
But also the tone , the approach is important , if you say it an nice and friendly waayy
it feels waaaaaaay more comfortable then someone who is angry and irritated..then ofcourse i would be a LITTLE offended :)

is it the beginning of a philosophical debate or a portal to insult the friend over things s/he is doing incorrectly?

"If you're a Muslim then you should know that this life is temporary we should be preparing for the afterlife."

Me: "Are you reading my mind?"

nope, the reason I asked is because someone got really offended and saw it as an accusation of being called non-Muslim because of the word 'IF' being used.

Depends how it was said? and who said it to who?

The tone is very important to me.

That's not offensive.

This is offen-

Well, I was about to link to something, but then I remembered my manners.

In the context of being bored, I'd be more likely to find an answer like 'Only boring people get bored' offensive in a tongue-in-cheek manner that facilitates much ribbing and merriment.
