As my subject says I am leaving my Islamic faith. I have very good reasons, logical and for myself why.
For one I will be dead honest. The religion is more of a cult... its violent and any outsider is looked down upon followed by possible torture and brutal death.... especially in the middle east.
Two: If you read the Quran carefully, you can see Muhammad stroked his own ego too much and used "god" more as a weapon to insert fear into people than praise him.
Three: Now this is not about religion... this is about Islam itself... other religions are very passive compared to Islam. They say that the Religion is peaceful.... Yes this is true and false.
How so? Lemme explain it as simple as I can.... At the beginning verses it is peaceful and even calls on the People of the book "Muslim Jews and Christians" to praise God as they all believe in the same one.
"Verily! Those who believe and those who are Jews and Christians, and Sabians, whoever believes in God and the Last Day and do righteous good deeds shall have their reward with their Lord, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve ." 2:62
THis verse here shows yes this is peaceful... Islam acknowledging the other Abraham religions as equal in believing and phrasing God. Latter the Quran contridicts itself.
"O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as Auliyâ' (friends, protectors, helpers, etc.), they are but Auliyâ' to one another. And if any amongst you takes them as Auliyâ', then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allâh guides not those people who are the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrongdoers and unjust)." 5:51
Now it is saying that its against being friends with them.... its gets better.
"O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as awliya’ (friends, protectors, helpers, etc.), they are but awliya’ to one another…"5:51
This is a latter verse... Now it is saying that the other faiths have no interest in Islam exempt each other. And sadly they use other faiths as a scapegoat from their problems. It can be at home, financially or even politics. You can see this, the wars going in in the middle east, even though they are causing most of the issues there they blame America, Israel, Europe, NATO, the UN...
And this is not even the tip of the iceberg. D:
The latter verses in the Qur'an tend to be violent and fear mongering... talking about if laws aren't followed or you mess up once you will be thrown into hell. It gets dark real fast... and the information I provided below is a real eye lifter.
Four: Now the reason why I am leaving Islam is because of the violent text it has in it's book and the people that support it. I am nervous about this becasue what I am doing can get me killed. Its called "honor killings" and in the Qur'an killing a Ex Muslim supposedly gets you the golden ticket straight into heaven.
"They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them" 4:89
And because of this actually gives me more reason to leave. There is a ton of verses that go against human rights, including killing homosexuals, Forced child marriages, abusing women and revoking their human rights, arranged marriages and my favorite "you are guilty until proven innocent." In many cases in the Middle East, most people die or spent too long in jail before they get a trial.
Anyways moving on! Check out these sites and YouTube Videos... Especially Sam Solomon. THis dude rips into the Qur'an! He converted into Christianity after knowing what is going on. Most Muslim Scholars are born Muslim. And Sam was born a Muslim and converted into Christianity! Sadly he went back to his country where he was imprisoned for his switch of faith and went into exile and death penalty.http://youtu.be/koUgSqK9CwIhttp://youtu.be/P27lgf-hlWUhttp://youtu.be/sKyWbzeO6rQ
