Please read the
letters Aisha and I exchanged first
I have decided to change from 'jihad to hate' to 'jihad to love' as my New
Year Resolution (thanks to your eye-opening letter you wrote me earlier).
The followings are
10 reasons why I want to give up my faith:
10) throw down the hijab......as if the only thing that stands out between
men and women is SEX as hijab I wear, as I am told, is to prevent men from
being excited. Isn't the most
powerful sex organ between the ears instead of between the legs?
9) give up my five times a day prayer....... For what? Why
would the Almighty Allah be so unsecured that He wants me to turn toward
him like Marlin Brando was in the movie 'Apocalypse Now' as he was
worshipped by his hundreds of savages? I believe it's far greater to help
with my hands of those in need than to pray with my
8) give up fasting during the Ramadan........ why go hungry
from sun rise to sun down?
Hungry? who I am kidding!! In fact, I tend to eat more during that month
as my weight scale speaks the truth. In reality, hunger is 'euphemism'
used by moslems for 'pain & suffering' as they claim to feel for
other poor (moslem) souls. For a change, I plan to donate food to an
orphanage run by the Buddhist temple in my town during the month of
7) spend the money I have saved for 'Hajj' .......... just
imagine how pathetic we look circling around that black rock kissing a
meteorite infected with millions of germs from diabetics to aids
patients(besides it reminds me of the toward-the-end scene from 'Midnight
Express' in which a dozen of lunatics in prison moving around a tall rocky
structure), and to top it all, we enrich hatemongering Saudis with
billions of dollars gained from the World's largest tourism, Hajj and
Umrah every year and yet we are treated like a secondclass citizen by
self-proclaimed custodians of the Holy Land.
6) abandon the ritual sacrifice of cattle/sheeps......... why
continue this barbaric act of gluttony during which time we slaughter
millions of those helpless animals
more for vanity and ego than out of necessity.
5) stop being submissive to men around me........ I shall
begin talking to men by looking directly into their eyes and demand to be
treated like an equal. I am tired of taking the back seat 'cos. I refuse
to believe that men are superior to me. I look around in my community and
see not one single woman I can be proud of. In my opinion, we have been
kept unproductive in society for too long while men control our lives
under the pretext of dignity & honor. They can take that 'dignity' and
shove it because dignity goes out the window when you have nothing to feed
our hungry child and consequently hunger turns you into selling your body
like many women are seen prostituting on Tehran street today.
4) I shall get me a dog today........... while the World
adores this creature as a most loyal pet, the moslems shun, as instructed
by the Prophet Mohamed, away from it citing that they are less sanitary.
Hello!! my best kafir friend has one and she is 10 times healthier and
smells better than all of my cousins and relatives. Besides dogs are the
only animals known to protect their masters with their lives.
3) starting today, I shall take full control of my own life
including finding a suitable mate. How ludicrous it is to let others
arrange my future with a male whom they have never spend a night or live
with. I look around me and see many of my female cousins were shoved into
marriages at young age with no choice and they all look like they are just
'existing' rather than 'living', except my cousin, Sophia, who married her
2) I shall stop donating money to the mosque which is run by
an Imam whose one-dimensional-seventh-century-minded teachings have
influenced my brothers and uncles to be hateful and divisive toward anyone
who doesn't worship the same God. He even preaches that a good woman is
one who obeys her husband. What a male chauvinistic pig! Besides, who
gives them (Imams) the direct phone line to Allah as they meddle in our
lives from bedroom to bathroom to our kitchen.
1) and finally I decided to love all mankind and to do it
effectively I know I have to abandon my faith............
Jan, 02, 2003
Many centuries ago, rabbis, priests and ministers were embarassed by
what was written in the Old Testament( or the Hebrew Bible) such as
adultery, torture, incest, bastardy, any many human conducts that would
be deemed unethical and unacceptable to say the least in today's World.
Subsequestly, those languages were cleverly omitted and replaced with
the 'good stuff' in both Torah and Bible(NT). So here is my question to
you: What if the Ulema of the World get together and collectivey decides
to throw out the 'bad stuff' in the Koran and replace them with good
ones? If so, would you consider rejoining your faith which you, your
mother/father and many of your friends were born into? Or what can Islam
do to persuade you and other ex-members to come back to the Club of
Faith? Please answer because I am, just like you, against hate; but
confused and ambivalent about my faith which unquestionably appears to
swing into the gate of hate as I read the Koran.
'born to hate' moslem
Dear “born to hate” Muslim.
Thank you for the email. No one
is born to hate. We are all born to love. We choose the different paths in
our lives on our own volition. We believe in hateful doctrines and hate
others because of them. But the choice to leave those spurious,
hatemongering beliefs is always with us. We can love the humanity if we
choose to. It is our beliefs that make us hate each other not our birth,
race or nationality.
You wrote that the Christians
and the Jews jettisoned the bad teachings of their holy books and now
their books are sanitized. Actually they haven’t. Their holy books still
contain a lot of nonsense. However what they did is they decided that
those so-called holy books are not the textual words of God but rather
written by men who were inspired by God. This makes a world of difference,
because it allows them not to take what is obviously outrageous too
seriously. There is always an element of human error. That is why they
have become tolerant. But unfortunately this possibility does not exist
with the Quran. Quran claims to be the verbatim word of Islam’s deity,
Allah and therefore no alteration is possible.
Also the NT does not have much
violence. It is actually a book that teaches non-violence. The OT contains
many stories of violence perpetrated by Moses and Joshua. But those are
stories. Apart from the fact that these personages are more mythological
than real and what is attributed to them could well be exaggerations,
those mandates to kill the non-Jews were given only to those
“historic” figures and are not for all times. The Jews are not
required to wage war against the non-Jews and convert the world into a
Jewish world. Quran on the other hand, contains many verses that instruct
its followers to be harsh and ruthless with the non-believers. While there
is a Chapter in the Quran called “Spoils of War”, the New Testament
asks those who preach the Christianity to dust off the dirt from their
shoes when they leave a town where they went to preach.
You asked what it takes for me
to come back. My question is why come back? What is in Islam that we
should keep it at all costs? If Muhammad was an impostor and a criminal
why keep alive his legacy and pay respect to him? Furthermore, to change
the Quran and make it a non-offending book you have to change all of it.
Then it would be a completely different book! So why call it Quran? Then
again why you and I should follow a book written by humans whose
understanding could be as flawed as ours?
The point is that Muhammad was
no messenger. He was a narcissist liar who used religion as a tool to fool
people and dominate them in his reveries of grandiosity and conquest. His
life shows that he was a pervert man. He was not a spiritual man but an
evil man with lots of lies. He could convince the ignorant Arabs of the
7th century to wage war for him, attack merchant caravans, kill the
innocent people and take their belonging and family as booty. Those
idiots thought that the fact that he is wining is because he is from God.
It did not occur to them that he is winning because he is ruthless and has
Instead of trying to make Islam survive at any cost,
I ask you to abandon this cult as soon as you can. Muhammad lied and Allah
is no God. If there is a God who made this Universe, it is not Allah.
The sooner we accept this inevitable fact, the sooner we will recover from
our misery, barbarity and backwardness.
