Leaving Islam



48 All Muslims are not terrorists. I am a Muslim and I am not fanatic and violent. I believe deeply in peace, love and toleration between all peoples. And the Qur'an is not "absolute darkness"

Of course all Muslims are not terrorists. This is an absurd statement. My grandmother never missed a prayer but I am sure she was a saint. I never met a woman as self-sacrificing, kind and loving as that pure soul. Do you really believe I think my beloved nana was a terrorist? I have met so many wonderful beings among Muslims that I met nowhere. There is something especial about us Middle Easterners that one cannot find anywhere else. Our hospitality is unmatched. We honor our words. We are warm and friendly people. You visit the house of an Arab, a Turk, an Afghan or a Persian and you are showered with so much love unparalleled in any other part of the world. It takes an idiot to call these people terrorists. You might have heard in the news when the Americans were bombing Afghanistan the Afghans were shielding American missionaries with their own bodies to make sure if there is a mishap they are not harmed. Are these people terrorists?

Our people are not terrorists just because they are born in an Islamic country and they think they are Muslims. Terrorists are those who follow the teachings of Muhammad. Quran is a book that inspires its followers to hate the non-believers, to kill them, subdue them and treat them as second-class citizens. But not all Muslims follow what Quran teaches. The majority of Muslims are not even aware of what Quran teaches or how Muhammad lived.

Take your own example. You say that you are not a fanatical violent person, you believe in peace, love and tolerance. Did you learn these qualities by reading Quran or are they part of your own family and society values? Let us see what Quran say:

3:28, Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah

Is this how you think about your Christian, Hindu or atheist neighbors? Do you really reject the friendship of good people just because they are not Muslims? If you answer in negative then you are not really following the teachings of Quran even though you call yourself a Muslim.

How about this teaching:

2:216, Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you

What do you say about this? Did you pack to go to Afghanistan to fight in the Jihad called by the Taliban? Do you think those who did that were wrong? Donít you think teachings such as these motivate some people to become Jihadis and kill innocent kafirs? How can you reconcile your love for humanity with teachings these teachings?

What about this one?

4:84, Then fight in Allahís cause - Thou art held responsible only for thyself - and rouse the believers. It may be that Allah will restrain the fury of the Unbelievers; for Allah is the strongest in might and in punishment.

Do you think this verse teaches tolerance?

Quran is replete with verses such as these. Donít you think the Islamic terrorists get their inspirations from these verses?

You insist we should look the good in Quran. Everyone can preach and give good advice. We have to see how they exemplify those good preachings in their own lives. Please read the Ahadith, although many of those hadithes are fabricated, they gradually start to shed light on the person of Muhammad. You will find Muhammad to be a vengeful, ruthless, lustful, sadistic man. This is not slander made by his enemies. This is the picture of Muhammad emerging from the Hadith narrated and collected by those who loved him and believed in him. After reading few pages of the Hadith you will find Muhammad was an evil person. Hitler had one good quality. He was not a womanizer. Muhammad had all the vices of Hitler and he did not have any good quality. I cannot find any man worse than Muhammad when I review the despots, thugs and murderers in the annals of history
