in Fast Demise
Alone Everyday, 16,000 Muslims Leave Islam
said if a lie is repeated often enough and long enough, it would come
to be perceived as truth. One such lie often repeated is “Islam is the fastest growing religion”.
the fact that Muslims by virtue of being poor and uneducated are much
more reproductive than others, Islam as a religion is not growing but
more Muslims are discovering that the violence evinced by some of
their coreligionists is not an aberration but is inspired by the
teachings of the Quran and the examples set by its author. Muslims are
becoming disillusioned with Islam. They find out that the mechanistic
ritual of praying five times per day, reciting verses that they do not
understand and indeed mean nothing, getting up at taxing hours of the
morning and abstaining from food and water until the sunset are not
means to becoming more spiritual but are instruments to control their
mind. These enlightened Muslims no more heed to the fear mongering
verses of the Quran that threaten to burn them and roast them in the
fires of hell if they dare to think and question the validity of that
thousands of Muslim intellectuals are leaving Islam. They find Islam
inconsistent with science, logics, human rights and ethics. Millions
of Iranians already have left Islam. The enlightened Muslims of other
nationalities are not far behind. This is the beginning of a mass
exodus from Islam. It is a movement that is already in motion and
nothing can stop it.
the exodus from Islam is not reserved to the intellectuals but also
the average Muslims are finding that Islam is not the way to God but
to ignorance, poverty and wars. They are leaving Islam to embrace
other religions especially the Christianity.

become insignificant in Africa in just a few decades. This is good
news for those who are concerned about the on going slavery in Africa
and the prospects of war and genocide.
fact with the weakening of Islam, we can hope to see peace in many
war-ridden parts of the world including Palestine. By now it should be
clear that any road map to peace between Israel and Palestine
will be blocked by the Islamists and the terrorists. Peace in Middle
East is not possible as long as Islam is the ideology of the

the peace of the world and these wars that bleed the Muslim nations
are not economically motivated but are they are hate motivated. They
are religious wars. The weakening
of Islam means peace for mankind.
Qataani and al Jazeera Network were alarmed by these huge numbers of
Muslims leaving Islam, but humanity must rejoice over these numbers.
The weakening of Islam means the triumph of mankind.

Dear viewers, peace of Allah be upon you, greetings and welcome to a
new episode of the program Islamic Law and Life.
Our topic this evening will be Christianization in the Dark Continent
... Africa. For after Islam was the religion of the majority, the
great majority of that continent, the number of Muslims now is no
greater than a third of the population. This is taking into
consideration, of course, that a large portion of this group are Arab
Muslims. No doubt that the missions of evangelization and
Christianization played a great role in this demographic shift of
Muslims in the continent.
To discuss this topic, it is my pleasure to introduce today a man who
is an expert on the issue of evangelization and Christianization in
Africa, even though he will concentrate on the issue of
Christianization first and foremost…. Sheikh Ahmad Al Qataani; the
president of The Companions Lighthouse for the Science of Islamic Law
in Libya, which is an institution specializing in graduating imams and
Sheikh Ahmad, welcome to you on the program.
Ahmad Al Qataani:
Greeting to you.
If we start by inquiring about your strict stance against the
Christian missions in Africa, don’t the followers of every religion
have the right to seek new converts, exactly as you train and graduate
young Muslims to propagate Islam?
Ahmad Al Qataani:
I seek refuge in Allah the Seer, the Knower, from the stoned devil. In
the name of Allah the Merciful the Beneficent. Thanks to Allah the
One, the Only, the Permanent One, who did not give birth nor was born,
to whom no one was equal. I bear witness that there is no God but
Allah who has no partners, and I bear witness that our master Muhammed
– Allah’s prayers and peace be upon him - is his messenger and
seal of prophets; Allah prayers be upon him and his brothers the
prophets and messengers and their families.
The question that you pose is a result of not comprehending the
difference between the concept of Christianization and the concept of
The concept of evangelism: is inviting the non-Christians to the
Christian or Nazarene religion, and this is the right of every
Christian and the right of every believer to call others to his faith.
However, we are talking about a different matter; which is
Christianization. Christianization means the following: preparing
plans, and executing these plans and evolving these plans to change
Muslims into Christians by taking advantage of the ignorance and
poverty (of the people) and whatever necessitates from similar
So, we are faced with the issue of taking advantage of circumstances,
taking advantage of humanitarian needs, taking advantage of the lack
of education for example, that these people (missionaries) use to take
Muslims out of their religion.
Fine. This is a big and dangerous phrase. Taking advantage of poverty,
of ignorance, of lack of education, of some need is something that a
Muslim can also be accused of. So if you don’t back up what you say
with examples, with references, your words remain in the air without
much weight to them.
Ahmad Al Qataani:
The reality is that these words say a lot less than they should. As we
said in the beginning, everyone has the right to invite others to his
religion; this is what is known as evangelism (or proselytizing). As
for Christianization, no one has the right to take Muslims out of
their religion, and you asked for references and the references are
Islam used to represent, as you previously mentioned, Africa’s main
religion and there were 30 African languages that used to be written
in Arabic script. The number of Muslims in Africa has diminished to
316 million, half of whom are Arabs in North Africa. So in the section
of Africa that we are talking about, the non Arab section, the number
of Muslims does not exceed 150 million people. When we realize that
the entire population of Africa is one billion people, we see that the
number of Muslims has diminished greatly from what it was in the
beginning of the last century. On the other hand, the number of
Catholics has increased from one million in 1902 to 329 million 882
thousand (329,882,000). Let us round off that number to 330 million in
the year 2000.
As to how that happened, well
.there are now 1.5 million churches whose congregations account for 46
million people. In every hour, 667 Muslims convert to Christianity.
Everyday, 16,000 Muslims convert to Christianity. Ever year, 6 million
Muslims convert to Christianity
These numbers are very large indeed …..
Maher Abdallah (interrupting):
Hold on! Let me clarify. Do we have 6 million converting from Islam to
Christianity or converting from Islam and other religions?
Ahmad Al Qataani:
Great (question)! The other religions are not placed on the list of
Christianization; rather they are placed on the list of
evangelization. The other religion in Africa is paganism; so it’s
Islam, Christianity or paganism. There isn’t something similar to
Asia for example where you have Buddhism or Zoroastrianism. In Africa
it is just these three, so if you talk about Christianization then it
targets the only other heavenly religion which is Islam. As for
paganism, those people worship animals and planets and the like.
So 6 million Muslims a year convert?
Ahmad Al Qataani:
Every year ….. In the African nations this century a tragedy
happened. Take for example what happened in Ethiopia. Ethiopia is an
Arab nation and I am not saying a muslim nation. If any student looks
up the word Habasha (Ethiopia) in the book Ocean Dictionary written by
Al-Fairuz Abady, he will find that the word Habashat means “people
of different tribes” and this is what happened. Ethiopia was a place
where Arabs from different tribes would go to live for a while. We all
know that Islam entered Ethiopia before Islam entered the city of
Medina. We all know that AL-Najashy (the ruler of Ethiopia) was a
Muslim. It is mentioned by Al-Darkatny in his biography of the prophet
– Allah’s prayer and peace be upon him – that during the month
of Rajab in the 9th year of the Hijra (Muslim calendar) that the
prophet said to his companions: “Rise up and pray on your brother
Al-Najashy.” From that year on the practice of praying on the absent
was established. Therefore from the time of the prophet – Allah’s
prayer and peace be upon him – Islam entered Ethiopia. So what has
happened to Ethiopia?
What happened is that in the days of Emperor Hela Silasi who used to
force Muslims to bow to the Christian, and if he refused then he was
whipped 45 lashes and jailed between 2 and 5 years. In the year 1948,
a massacre occurred at the hands of the Amharic tribes; the Amharic
being Christians and collaborators, who continued to slaughter Muslims
for 7 months and perform the most horrific acts imaginable. For
example they deprived them from the most basic human rights, to the
point that they mutilated the male Muslim’s reproductive organs so
that no more Muslim children would be born. Ethiopia was rewarded
after all these horrific acts; rewarded by being made the head
quarters of the African Unity League.
Let us move to another location in Africa, let it be Nigeria. Nigeria
is known by Muslims by the name of the Land of Takror. Nigeria was
founded at the beginning of the last century by the British, and many
Islamic sources mention it’s name as the Land of Tekror. There is
even a letter by the reciter Suyuti, who died in the year 911 Hijri,
where the title is: Opening the blessed request and relating the
hidden openly to the questions of the people of Takror. So there was
an established relationship, and they used to send questions to the
scholars of Islam, so this letter (of questions) was sent from one of
the sheikh scholars of Nigeria that was called Takror to the Muslim
scholar AL Suyuti in Egypt and he in turn responded and the contents
of this letter are published and printed and is found in the book
“The collection Islamic decrees”.
Nigeria’s population is 120 million people, 70% of whom are Muslim.
In the 1960’s a British missionary came and declared that he will
Christianize North Nigeria, the majority of whom are Muslim. As a
result, Ahmad Banulo (from the leaders of the Msulims) was forced at
the time to move him to Lagos the capital. As a result the butcher
Arorese, that was present at the time, eliminated all the Muslim
rulers and killed Ahmad Banulo, why? Because he merely dared to move
this missionary who declared that he wishes to Christianize North
In another country, Zanzibar, is an Arabic African nation and I am not
saying Muslim. Zanzibar was always connected to the Sultanate of Oman
(in the Persian Gulf). Concerning Zanzibar, there was a priest by the
name Julius Niriry, president of Tanzania, who annihilated 20,000
Muslims (male and female) with a military force lead by a chicken
thief. This thief was imprisoned for being accused of stealing
chickens; he was released and asked to command the military brigade
that annihilated 20,000 Muslims.
My dear viewers welcome back to this episode where we are speaking
about the topic of Christianization in the African continent and we
are speaking with the Sheikh who is observing and following this
issue, as each hour Islam loses just under 700 Muslims who join the
Christian religion which leads us to the number of 6 million Muslims
Our sir, you mentioned that there are advantages being taken of
necessities: poverty, ignorance; what you mentioned then are waves of
elimination, waves of religious eradication, and there is no need to
call is racial eradication….. However, let us go back to the topic
necessity and exploitation. This may have all been in the past; the
military expeditions that you spoke of were all in the beginning or
middle of the last century, but what is happening today in regards to
Ahmad Al Qataani:
What I wanted to say is that these military expeditions and wars paved
the way for what we are seeing today; converting 6 million Muslims
every year did not happen from nothing, but was a result of what I
As for the topic of necessity exploitation, then a nation like
Somalia, whose population is 9.5 million people, are all Muslim
without exception. There are no Christians or pagans. And if you did
find any then they are an insignificant number that are not even on
official statistics. A Belgian missionary by the name of Sabeh came to
Somalia and purchased 30,000 Muslim youth, he took advantage of their
parents poverty, and we all know the terrible situation that Somalia
is going through now and what it went through a few years ago. This is
taking advantage of a humanitarian need that any human can go through.
