These are not why I left Islam. They are reflections after leaving Islam. Keep in mind that even if I was completely wrong about every single one of these, it would not make me come back to Islam. As a Secular Humanist, I find these to be troubling issues we find and they seem to show that Allah is not the intelligent supreme being that sent us a beautiful wise religion but rather a 7th century invention with barbaric rules and orders that matched that early era but do not belong in today’s world.
