Why I left Islam – Core Issues

These are the main issues I found with Islam.  If you want to understand the real problems I found, start here.


Dialogues and discussions I had after leaving Islam.  Some thoughts


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.


Sometimes history is not what it seems

  1. Sameer,

    You don’t know me but I’m a Muslim convert and I accepted Islam in or about the same time your site came out. I went through a few laptops with lightupon…com favorited. I’m saddened to see the direction. In any case, I would advise you to read and ponder on some of the more basic books on the deen. Verily, bro, the prophet spent nearly a decade of the dawah initially nuturing his companions with the fundamentals( belief in Allah, Messenger, last day, angels, etc) before getting into things like marriage, rulership, travel, business, etc. In any case, I would advise you read these books if you haven’t already done so. So, yes, I would more than love for you to come back but if unsuccessful then I thank Allah for any situation.

  2. Hi

    Really interesting blog. I wonder in your journey away from Islam did you ever consider Quran only Islam, that’s Islam without the hadith? Solves many (not all) of the problems you list in this post if you ignore the hadith (which Quran tells us to do, 7:185, 31:6, 45:6, or just look up any instance of the word “hadith” in the Quran itself)

  3. Welcome to Atheism/Agnosticism bro. When i lost my faith from Islam (i learned whole quran by hearth and was Imam) 20 years ago i felt i am alone in the world. Today, thanks of online communities, i have thousand of online friends and plenty of ex-muslim Athiest friends in real life too
