I said the word “mainly” because there are exceptions but I’ve seen a video that is getting quite famous about how where you are born/the culture you are raised in mainly determines your religious values.
If you are born in Saudi 95% will be Muslim, in Thailand majority will be Buddhist. If you are born in a culture where you are made to adhere to religious principles strictly from birth it will be something you follow strictly even as you grow up.
The main challenges I seen from this are, despite birthplace/culture being arguably the main determining factor to what religion you follow they all would claim there religion is the ONE true religion, people in certain cultures won’t challenge their own beliefs but rather have an extremely biased outlook on religion and ties with confirmation bias to ensure that one stays/follows the same said religion, if they were born in another environment they would likely follow another religion and as they grow up likely not convert to the religion they are already in.
Therefore, religion is mainly determines by culture/where you are born instead of the actual beliefs and if people were born in to other families/cultures/areas they would likely follow a different faith or not be religious at all.
Is there any Hadith/Quranic verses or any Islamic scholars that refute this?
