Dear Dr. Sina,
Your site brought
tears of joy to my eyes. It is so great to realize I am not alone!
I left Islam before
your site came into existence. I kid you not; I left Islam when I was 7
years old or so! My apostasy was triggered by a very interesting incident.
Kids usually regard
textbooks as something sacred and believe every word it says. If an author
says that the French revolution is good (or bad), then most students will
parrot it. They won’t use their own brains.
My teacher wanted us
to use our brains and stop “worshipping” textbooks. She gave us an
assignment to write our own book. When we finished, she said that we could
now publish it. Some kids wrote that every parent has to buy an ice-cream
every day, others wrote that schools and education as a whole must be
banned. Nobody could prevent us from publishing our books. If we had
released our masterpieces without mentioning our ages, some people would
have certainly believed every single word in our books. If we had added
the magic abbreviation “PhD” to our creations, many people would have
started worshipping it.
Then it suddenly
occurred to me that Mohammed, a man whom my parents named “a perfect
man”, could have made up the Koran! Why should I believe him? I can
create my own religion and claim that I’m the prophet of the only true
Since then I have
never named myself “a Muslimah”. When I became a big girl, I studied
Islam thoroughly and came to a conclusion that Islam is a load of crap. My
parents left Islam too. We all now are safe and sound in
I advise all Muslims
to read articles in this site. You don’t need to worship Ali Sina or
believe him. He could think out every accusation he has leveled at
Mohammed. In my opinion, he is just a man who studies Islam critically. If
Ali Sina didn’t exist, Islam would still be a load of crap. Friends, you
have your own brains, so use them. How could a prophet marry a 9-year-old
girl? How could a prophet have more than 20 wives and concubines but at
the same time command his followers to have only 4 wives? Isn’t it
strange that God permitted Mohammed to have more than 4 wives? Decide for
yourself. Make your own investigation. AND USE YOUR BRAINS!
Today I believe in
God. But, I’m afraid, Mohammed had nothing to do with God.
Dear Ali Sina, I am
very happy that you exist! Yes, without you Islam would still be trash but
it feels so go with you.
P.S. Dear Ali Sina,
English is not my mother tongue so if you can,
please correct my
