you are merely having pride in your beliefs. im not degrading to insulting people here, but its sort of like: i am right, i have these beliefs, and it makes me happy. ? does that answer what you are asking. im not really sure what the problem is. you are proud to be a muslim, means that you think that your beliefs are right and you are not afraid to tell others about it. speaking from the point of being atheist, i am not really pround, but i think i know that my beliefs are true and that gives me a sort of happiness that could be called pride. maybe that is it. is it?
