I want to join because I feel very lonely as an ex Muslim and I want to meet like-minded people who understand me. I feel ostracized and relatives ridicule me. I am an Atheist. I became one three years ago. This is a big taboo in the Muslim community as apostasy is punishable by DEATH, which is part of the reason I left. Also other big reasons 1. I am an Atheist 2. I support women's rights 3. Islam leads to violence. 4. I am a secularist.

I am a non-believer, a journalist, and very much interested in the way ex-muslims emancipate themselves.

Hi, i'm lulu and i'm an ex-muslim but unfortunately i'm still living in a muslim country and my family is forcing me to practice islam, i'm forced to cover my hair and my whole body they force me to fast and pray and to do all the nonsense stuff they believe in. I hate islam so much it took my life and youth away from me.

I want to join because for the longest time I felt alone and isolated. I'm a Saudi student living abroad in Canada in pursuit for knowledge. I come from a moderately religious family which is mostly attributed to my moms international background. However, as you know Saudi Arabia is not a place where apostasy is accepted. I was 13 when I considered myself not a Muslim, it was due to watching a show on TV regarding the human body. I learned about the faulty DNA, and the vestigial organs in our bodies and everything points to the lack of an "intelligent designer". For the longest time I kept quite and rolled with the acts knowing that if I professed my religious views I would get harmed or even worse cause harm to my parents. Long after that, I reverted back couple of times because the non stop indoctrination methods of Saudi educational programs have left a semi-permanent seed of doubt within me. However, since coming to Canada I can finally be free and express my opinions on Islam and be myself to those who are close to me, yet I still have not told my parents because I'm afraid that they will shun me or feel ashamed of my lack of belief.

I was born in a well-known Muslim family in India, but left islam when i was at SOAS london Uni in 1996. I was a member of a christain church in London for a number of years, but grew out of it mainly becuase of their reluctance to support guy rights etc. Now I identify myself as a humanist ex-Muslim ( but not talk about it when i visit my parents in India, for security reasons. However I have managed to help my two nephews ( 20 and 21, student in the uk ) secretly reject islam.
I have spent most part of my adult life in the UK and have served in a number of important positions, including in the Foreign Office, where I was part of the team responsible for organising rescue missions and media campaigns for forced marriage victims ( 2002-2007). I also have some other experience of working in the field of human rights e.g. Human rights spokesperson for CSW etc. ( google search of my name should tell you a bit more about my human rights and advocasy works). I have never felt physically threatened in London and am happy openly share or express my views on islam and help CEBM in any way i can. Thanks. Best, simon

I converted to Islam around a year ago after learning about the religion through Muslim friends. I didn't know much more than was explained to me and after saying shahada I began to practice much to bemusement of friends and family. I joined a community of Sufi's, who were culturally similar and very balanced friendly people. Immediately I decided to get stuck into the texts, the Quran, Hadith, Sira, Tafsir and the writings of people like Al-Ghazali. After studying it personally for months something wasn't quite right what I was reading bore no relation to reality as I saw it and there was some very troubling passages and ideas. I voiced my concerns but got answers that seemed very wishy washy, my faith dropped but I still had a fear of eternal damnation so I kept up prayers, until watching a YouTube channel 'the Masked Arab' who just buried the faith for me. Now having been a Muslim (albeit for only a year) I understand the faith more than I ever could have as a casual observer. The dangers of childhood indoctrination, the need for ex-Muslims from a cultural background of Islam to have a place, a voice and a refuge. I'm not one for generally joining groups but as the ex-Muslim community seems very fragile I feel that just adding an extra number to the group and helping where I can would be of use to you.

I would like to join to connect to people with similar experiences to myself. I'm a nineteen year old university student of Kashmiri descent and have felt isolated due to not being a Muslim. Having grown up and studied in birmingham has made being myself extremely difficult in the sense that I've always found myself surrounded by Muslims and unable to share my experiences with Islam openly.

I moved recently to London from Miami. Back in the States I was a member of your North American branch, American Atheists, Humanists of South Florida, Secular Jewish Humanists, and a few others. Now living in England I want to recreate my secular community with a circle of people who I can create that community. Anyway that's a little bit about me. Greatly appreciate your work.

Hi, I'm a Tunisian ex muslim opposed to the parochial teachings of the religion that I was brought up in. I'd love to join as it gives me a new sense of identity and community with others like me who have also went on a painful journey of 'shameful doubt'.

I grew up in Northern Ireland surrounded by religious nut jobs who liked to kill. I escaped as soon as I could to what was then the sanctuary of London where I lived for 23 years. Seems different religious nut jobs followed me there. Gave up on London and moved to a country where religion is just about tolerated.

I would like to join you because you are defend ex-Muslims, non-believers and atheists. I was born in a Muslim family, but I don't believe in Islam and in God anymore. Because personally, I have been affected directly by the Anfal. In other words, genocide. My father was ”anfalised” in the 1988 Anfal campaign, after which he transferred to a concentration camp where he was shot like many other Kurds. He was buried (by a bulldozer) in one of the mass graves in the deserts of southern or central of Iraq. I have never seen my father because I was only three months when he was anfalised.

Born and raised as muslim until i stated thinking why i'm being forced to pray. have to forcefully pray 5 times a day from age 7 till your death. That's insane. being forced, being beaten by own parents, allowed by islam. There is no NO to this. if you say no, get ready for more restrictions and beatings. this religion totally sucks. you can't even fucking leave this religion as islam describes a punishment of death penalty if you leave islam. Are you kidding me !!

Hi, I have been a practicing Muslim, up until a few weeks ago (although I am still maintaining my 'practicing muslim' image for security reasons). There's so many things I've been thinking about in Islam, and feel it's just not right. I don't know if I've left Islam or whether I'm still a Muslim, it's just too much emotional and mental torture. Been trying to justify teachings are ruling which are filled with hatred, misogyny and racism, but I have no answers. There are things which no longer apply in this age. When muslim clerics/or people with more knowledge are questioned, they say I have become murtid or someone who needs to do astaghfar and pray. I am in a very scary place and don't know. Perhaps came here for some guidance and non judgmental support.

My name is Nahid and I grow up in an Islamic country, I suffered by unequal rules and treatment between women and men. My family forced me to marry when I was 14 years old and when I tried to divorce 10 years later I had to give all my inheritance to my husband to let me keep my children.

For around 6 months (as of the 10th of August), I have been having serious doubts about religion; after researching in abundance, I have come to the conclusion that I am now an Atheist.
