Why I don't Emulate Islam's Prophet Anymore
First of all, is it necessary to say
something about me? I donít like to remember my bitter past when I was a
Like any typical ignorant Muslim, I was very much Islam-oriented. ... A
man who couldnít tolerate any brickbat on his beliefs and learned to be
suspicious and prejudicial on critics and criticism. . I suspended all
allegations brought by critics with much contempt and disdain. I too
believed Islamís prophet is a man of exalted morals, I am taught to live
like him, to love him., to walk on this earth like he did. All those were
acceptable until I learned to doubt and began to look upon things
I learned history from an Islamic
perspective, but after the completion, a simple thought provoked me to
see, how could this same story be if I rewrite it in a lost paganís
I think it was the beginning of my enlightenment. I refused to play the
part of a victim any more and a lot of courage was needed for the purpose.
I donít exactly remember what wrote

at Jesus and his sufferings.
I learned look unto my own inner self
through Buddha. Then quite shockingly I realized my beloved prophet is a
misfit. He failed to show me anything other than the dark side of human
Those who trumpet the greatness of Islamís prophet have a responsibility

executioners even in excruciating pain of crucifixion? Where is the moral
of renunciation in him when we have Lord Buddha as a role model of
Muslims are quite eloquent on familial values and keen to find fault with
others especially west. I challenge any Muslim to show me any virtue in
their prophetís familial life that can be blindly followed!
I left this prophet and his teachings, but this is not a praiseworthy act,
when in fact I should be ashamed of being a part of this cult at least for
quite some period of my life in the past. A repentance and apology is due.
So let me try my best. I will be an active member of this forum and
contribute what I can to end this stupidity.
I dedicate this testimony to the whole
of suffering humanity; I dedicate this to those innocent kids massacred in
Beslan. Shame on you Muslim, you still taste their blood sweet.!
