Leaving Islam



Frequently Asked Questions, Objections and Comments
1 Some of Islam's teachings may not be applicable today.  But Islam played an important part in human civilization
2 What about the great minds of Islamic world? Shouldn’t we thank Islam for rearing these luminaries?  

Your criticism is Just about Islam or all religions?

4 You talk about the bad parts of Islam. How about the good parts? 
5 Do you suggest that Islam is bad for the people and they should accept other religions?
6 Is it right to be disrespectful towards any religion? 
7 People must respect other people's beliefs
8 You are insulting us and the religion of more than  a  billion people.
9 You seem to think that Violence and killing of non-believers is unique to Muslim 
10 What you are writing are all facts and true. Like what the present Jews say "The only good Arab is the Dead Arab"
11 God is invisible, incomprehensible, inaccessible, a pure essence, which cannot be described. You attempt to describe the indescribable and explain the unexplainable.  
12 Why are you against God?
13 Who are we  to really know who or what God is?
14 Human logic is fallible. It is not a reliable mean to know God.  
15 What do you know that billions of human beings have missed out for thousands of years until this very moment?
16  Are you telling me that thousands of sages, saints and prophets during the history of mankind who believed in God were wrong, and now you want to "refute" that God is a being?
17 Why do you only talk about Islam? What about Christianity and Judaism that are as illogical as Islam? 
18  But there are other versions of Islam. Not all Muslims are fanatics. 
19 You are wrong, it is intolerant people like you that cause hatred and stir sedition among people. 
20 You are forgetting the historical context and the prevailing social, cultural, and geo-political conditions of those times. 
21 The Quran can be interpreted in different ways. This is the beauty of the Quran.   
22 How is it possible that this world has come to be without any intervention ?
23 If Muhammad was not the messenger of God, why would he pretend to be? 
24  If Muhammad was insane like you say, then how did he could fool so many people so easily? 
25 Keeping people to believe in a false doctrine for 23 years is a hard thing to do. 
26 I don't understand why would Muhammad lie about being a prophet?  After all he was known to be very honest,
27 I just think that Muhammad must really have believed in what he was doing.
28 There are some cases that seem extraordinary, like the Battle of Badr, the Muslims were only one third of the other group or the Battle of Ohod. Doesn’t that prove that there was a divine force with the Prophet? 
29 To what you attribute the rise of religious fundamentalism in the Islamic countries?
30 Islam is a religion filled with positives and negatives, and thanks to my rational ability, I am well able to dissect the positive from negative. 
31 You emphasize so much on doubt and that your mission is to make people doubt their beliefs. Don’t you think that this isn’t polite? It means that you only cause confusion. 
32 Why a nun can be covered from head to toe and she's respected for devoting herself to God, but when a Muslimah does that, she's considered  "oppressed"? 
33 Why a Jew can grow a beard and he's just practicing his faith, and when a Muslim does that, he's an extremist?
34 Why when a western woman stays at home to look after the house and kids she's sacrificing herself and doing good for the household, but when a Muslim woman does so, she "needs to be liberated"?  
35 Why is it that when a child dedicates himself to a subject, he has potential, and when a child dedicates himself to Islam, he is hopeless? 
36 Why when a Christian kills someone, religion is not mentioned, (i.e., Ireland and the IRA) but when a Muslim is charged with a crime, it's Islam that goes to trial?
37 Why is it after all that, Islam is still the fastest growing religion in the world?
38 You quote the Quran out of its correct context.  
39 Quran contains many good teachings. out of more than 6000 verses you pick only those that suit your agenda. 
40 In the verse 79:30 it is stated that the Earth is egg shape. Eggs are spherical. How Muhammad knew this 1400 years ago?   
41 I am a Muslim who, after reading your articles, am having some doubts.  The only thing that is hindering me from apostasizing is the fear of hell.
42 Could you explain what is evolution and why everything happens at its pace as we so rightly see in our everyday lives?  To elaborate further - the birth process, the death process, why do we eat & drink, why do we fall ill and equally, why and how are we cured and where does the cure come from?
43 I do not agree that Islam is against women.  The Bible is very derogatory towards the women. Let it be known that in the Bible Eve was blamed for Adams downfall, that I Corinthians asserts that the man is the head of the woman and that a woman who walks within the church with her head uncovered is to be full of shame, that in I Corinthians as well a man is the reflection of God while the women is merely the reflection of man. ...
44 Before westerners accuse Islam of violating the rights of women, lets look at their own statistics and the number of women raped, abused and discarded there.  
45 The way that women's bodies are viewed as commodities changing as the current fashion trend dictates.  The number of eating disorders, the huge diet industry and even larger beauty industry as women fight to be something that they can never achieve is an abuse of women.   Why are most corporate CEO's men, most managers--why are women still not given equal pay in the land of the free and the home of the brave?  I am not saying that some Islamic countries are not full of problems but let's not close our eyes to the problems of the western world.
46 You have quoted that "truth is pathless" which seems to mean that it is not absolute.  That no one has the absolute truth.  And yet you go on to give your own philosophies of what truth is.... 
47 Islamic History hasn't been ALL bad either. There are many examples of good Islamic societies. During the height of the Caliphate in Baghdad, Jews and Christians lived in peace as compared to the persecution of faith that went on in Europe at that time. There was a flowering of literature and philosophy and many examples of great 'free spirits' who flourished under Islamic Society, such as (off the top of my head) Rumi, Ibn Arabi, Ibn Sina, Al-Jahiz and many, many others
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"  
49 Are you suggesting that we should eliminate all the religions? Don't you think that some religions have something good to offer? If so why is it that so many people are attracted to them?  
50 Rumi was a very talented and intelligent man. Could he have been seeing something you and I can't see?"

Clearly, the Qur'an cannot be barbaric if it produced one of the greatest lovers known to the West and the East.
51 Without Islam how can I raise my spiritual awareness, 
52 If Islam is evil how comes cities like Cordoba , and Baghdad became places of enlightenment in science and math and medicine, and that Europeans were flocking to these places to learn from these Arabs.
53 If you are so anti-Islamic because the faith is evil, I want you to tell me what you think of the Talmud, the Pentateuch and of the Zohar and Kabbalah teachings that are just as violent as the Quran.
54 How do I know you are not a Zionist Jew masquerading as an ex-Muslim? I want to know, so then I can decide if I should accept your website.
55 All your arguments aside, the greatest testimony to Mohammad's (pbuh) prophethood comes from the faith of those nearest to him. His best friend embraced Islam, his wife embraced Islam, his cousin and his slave embraced Islam. Some of his companions were always with him call it 24/7 surveillance if you will. In case you missed the point every aspect of his life is covered, from his wife we learn how he was in bed, from his slave we learn how he treated them, from his companions it is difficult to make out who he loved more, the Salman of Persia or the Abu Bakr of Mecca.
56 You may have several issues with Muhammad and the Quran he was inspired with but why would his companions, including his wife and his slaves speak so loftily about him? 
57 People have found the name "allah" in fruits, such as the watermelon, tomato and the mango. When the fruit was cut in half the name "allah" appeared on the flesh. How is this possible? just thinking about it makes me scared.


what do you believe now?
59 The site claims to be faithfreedom but why you only criticize Islam? Shouldn’t the Muslims have the freedom to practice their faith?


The site claims that Muslims kill others. Are they killing just for fun? Don’t you think they are being oppressed and this is their way to get some justice?
61 If Muhammad was a liar then why he was known as Amin (trusted)?
62 If Islam is not true why is it the fastest growing religion?  
63 Wouldn't it be better to find and foster the true parts of Islam, in order to heal the madness that exists within it, rather than to inspire hate, fear and "otherness"?
64 Islam is a religion that has some good to it. For example it tell Muslims that they will go to paradise if they do a good deeds for fellow followers etc.
65 In Sura 2:23 Allah challenges anyone to produce a sura like it.  No one can write a sura like the suras of the Quran, so poetic and beautiful. 
66 If Allah is not the same god of the Jews and Christians why God is called Allah in the Arabic Bible?
67 If Muhammad was a liar why he made a religion so hard to follow?
68 You are brainwashing people 
69 Sites like this promote racism, 
70 You quote the Quran out of context. 
71 Can I continue believing in God after I leave Islam?  

Can you tell me how to find God?
