A couple of months ago a woman from an Arabic country sent me an email expressing her confusion about her identity as she could no longer see herself believing in Islam which she had found out was evil in its core. I published her email and my response to her here.  and sent her a copy of my book.  She left Islam and immediately started talking to her friend who also has started questioning this so called religion.

I warned Shakila (a pseudonym) to be careful and as long as she lives in an Islamic country she should not trust anyone, including her best friends and parents.  Unable to keep the truth to herself Shakila has launched her own blog so she may reach to Muslims all over the world.  Here is her first post.


Can you imagine how it feels to be finally liberated from an evil cult which was started by a sadistic, misogynistic, pedophile, anti-semite, a bandit and a perverted sex maniac fourteen centuries ago? How it feels to finally emerge from a fear and guilt infested existence? What the first air of freedom feels like? You can never truly understand this overwhelming feeling of absolute emancipation unless and until you are an ex-Muslim like me. Yes, I am an apostate of Islam, and I am so proud to be able to finally announce it to the world.

To tell you the truth, I have never really been a good Muslim, because I have always been a very good human being. I guess everyone but the Muslims would know that a good human being is always a bad Muslim and vice versa, because the two can never go together. I always loved all human beings and never judged anyone based on their religion, unlike the teachings of Quran, which says we are not supposed to befriend non-Muslims and we are supposed to slay them wherever we find them. That is clearly mentioned in the 9th sura.

Speaking of which, I have to admit that I never liked the teachings of that so-called holy book, and it always made me feel helpless and sad. I wanted and wished fervently that all the people in the world would live happily in peace and not make religion a bone of contention among them. But the situation always got worse, and 9 times out of 10, the Muslims were responsible.

After 9/11, I seriously started to doubt my beliefs, but I never had the guts or the courage to face them until I came across my friend, my savior and my mentor Ali Sina just a few months ago. He has changed my outlook of life and he really opened up my eyes to the false and evil cult of Islam, which I had been blindly following for the last 35 years, albeit halfheartedly. It is not that I wasn’t aware of the evil of Islam, because I had been fairly well acquainted with the works of accomplished and judicious writers like Robert Spencer, Pamela Geller, Daniel Pipes and Raymond Ibrahim, but they were not Muslims, so somewhere deep down inside, I always ended up giving Mohammed the messenger of Allah the benefit of the doubt. It was only when I suddenly stumbled upon Ali Sina’s website and subsequently his book “Understanding Mohammed” that actually made me wake up to this harsh reality. The truth hurts, as they say, so when I realized for the first time that Islam was actually a hoax, it broke me down completely. It took me a while to come to terms with it; I went through several stages like denial and anger, but finally I have come to the acceptance stage.

I have stopped praying completely since 28th of October 2011, so it has just been almost two months now but I have to admit, I have never felt so peaceful and relaxed in my life. I don’t have to wake up every morning at unearthly hours to pray fajar or make time at work to pray zuhar and asar. I don’t have to miss my favorite show on TV because its time for Magreb. I can now go to bed at any time I want at night without having to make sure I pray Isha before I sleep.

A lot of changes have taken place in my life, which I would explicate in the weeks to come, but for now, let’s toast to new beginnings. Till next week, here is wishing you all a Merry Christmas.

  1. I concur! completely with what you said. Good stuff. Keep going, guys..

  2. That is a really good tip especially to those fresh to the blogosphere. Short but very accurate information… Appreciate your sharing this one. A must read article!

  3. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  4. What kind of things can not circulate through the network.

  5. Very interesting points you have noted , regards for putting up. “Whatever one man is capable of conceiving, other men will be able to achieve.” by Jules Verne.

  6. The next time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you can fix if you werent too busy on the lookout for attention.

  7. I can hardly believe how lucky I am that I visited such a well-written blog.
