Why I Left Islam

This is quite natural that when a person is shaken out of his comfort zone and dropped into another culture, he starts to question his own traditions and beliefs and compare them to the new culture... and end up asking which one is right.

Many Muslims cannot even allow themselves to think that leaving Islam is an option, but I committed the ultimate sin of thinking and questioned the belief that was imposed on me and I came to realize that Islam is not a religion of truth. No wonder there is so much inexplicable hate of the West and of the Jews among Muslims. It was Islam which inseminated the hate and the distrust of the non-believers among Muslims.

There were so many aspects of Islam, including its hatred and dislike of others, for which I had not got satisfactory answers while living in Pakistan. Islam wants to dominate the world by subduing all non-Muslims, calls for Jihad, and killing of non-believers until Islam becomes the only dominant religion of the World. How can Muslims integrate with other nations while holding these hateful messages of Islam?

The reason for my conversion to Christianity was Islam itself. If I had regularly experienced peace and tolerance, I probably would never have left. In fact, I was taught never take non-Muslims as friends:

[O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people – (Qur'an Chapter 5: Verse 51)]

When I arrived in Australia I was received kindly by Christians and people of other religions or of no religion, who loved me and accepted me as their friend, who let me into their lives and hearts. It became obvious to me that Muslims are accepted by all the people of the world yet Islam wants us to hate them, to disassociate ourselves from them, to force them into our way of life or kill them, subdue them and make them pay Jizya.

I found Christians to be friendly, tolerant, and peace loving. I did not find any reason to hate them or dislike them. The Qur'an clearly declares if a Muslim takes Christians for friends then he is a Christian too (Qur'an Chapter 5: Verse 51).

I realized within weeks of my arrival in Australia that Christians are not friends of each other but of everyone. Although I had little knowledge about Christianity at the time of conversion but I was satisfied that I had reached that right path of love and peace.

Welcome to the free world Nazeer.

Jesus is the most inspiring of prophets, even his name rings peace and love for all mankind. The reason he preached non-violence is to illuminate our minds to the infinite ways of rebellion, debate and discourse to peacefully ensure the foundations of corrupt beliefs crumble and dissipate. Too many Christians unfortunately think Jesus his stance on non-violence means we should dwell in apathy, against Islam this is not very helpful.

I'm not a good Christian , but my belief does inspire me to become a better man over time and always critically assess myself and my ideas , which is what matters. Its difficult to become a better person with a rolemodel such as Muhammed.

I'm happy to see another former Muslim brave enough to get past the roadblocks of fear & hate Muhammed created to stop anyone from even thinking about leaving Islam. I would have been equally happy if you'd converted to atheism, Hinduism or any other belief, as anything is morally superior to Islam, but i'm glad you found a belief for yourself early on.

May you enjoy your life as a free man and continue to serve as an inspiration to infidels wanting to make the world a better place and to all Muslims who know Islam can not exist side by side with their own loving soul and moral beliefs.

It does not matter whether you are an atheist or Hindu or whatever, the only thing that matters is whether you are a good human being or not.


I agree, but for me the definition of a good human being also includes what you support & which dangerous entities you protect from criticism. Certain Muslims marvel at the power of Islam to be able to censor its flaws by trickery and violence. They are everyday good citizens, but they certainly enjoy seeing Islam's well oiled propoganda machine run smoothly, they kind of enjoy that people are scared too talk about Islam.

I hope to see you stick around on FFI and if there is somewhere Christian answers against Islam are discussed, i'd hope you invite me.
