I was thinking of playing a muslim character in eclipse phase. The clash between old beliefs and a vastly changed world is an interesting challenge. How could Islam have adapted to the transhuman world and the fall? Most of the central tenets of the faith, the five pillars would be able to survive. The biggest problem is the fifth pillar, The Hajj or pilgrimage. How would you travel to Mecka when earth is in quarantine and crawling with plagues, nanoviruses, grey goo and other horrors unleashed by the TITANs? Not all muslims visit Mecka. In poor villages it is common for them to pool their cash together and send a representative of the village on the pilgrimage. Could such a journey be possible? It could definitively be an interesting plot hook. Sawm, the ritual fasting during the ramadan also presents a challenge. If you inhabit a synth body that does not need sleep, water or food how do you fast? Or if you are a infomorph? Infomorphs could perhaps give themselves the illusion of needing food in a VR world. Synthmorphs may switch to being Infomorphs during Ramadan in order to remind them of the needy who lack a physical body. Other problems are how you deal with the laws. The Sharia is composed of precepts set by the Quran and examples shown by the Prophet Muhammed in the Sunnah. Of those two the Quran is considered the highest authority. Some laws make a difference between men and women. Women only receive half the inheritance of a man as an example. This becomes a problem when people can switch bodies at will. Of cource we could do away with all of this by just concluding that Islam in Eclipse Phase would be hopelessly bioconservative. I find it more interesting to imagine how could EP Islam would have adapted without having a Bioconservative meme.
