I'm thinking beragama can translate to “practise” quite nicely. Do Indonesians say Muslim by the way? Like, can orang Islam be orang Muslim, and if so, does it sound pretentious?

I think (based on my own experiences) that Indonesians would either say orang Islam or Muslimah/Musliman (female/male Muslim, no orang). Can't back up with sources except for my own experience w family
