UKAsad RasoolPortsmouth

I am an Ex muslim who grew up in a practicing muslim household in the UK. Started questioning things around my first year of university and haven't looked back since. I feel privileged and liberated to break free from this oppressive doctrine of hate and inequality and feel sorry for pretty much all my family and a lot of friends who are still bound and blinded by it. I could never tell my parents that I no longer believe in Islam or that I now despise it even; not out of fear but just pity at the heartbreak it would cause them. I have been a non believer for a while now and wanted to find and join a community who shares my experience and views, I hope this is it.

Many thanks,

Asad

I am a 26 year old Somali working as a petroleum engineer in Budapest, Hungary: and have been a proud infidel for along time. Like everybody else am searching for a community of like minded ex Muslims to share life experiences with. As a minority within a minority, I long for the time we can all come out of the closet and declare our atheism and disdain for Islam as embodied by its schizophrenic, superstitious, blood thirsty, paranoid pedophile; namely Mohamed (PBUH) . I believe this to be very necessary especially in the Somali community.
Hope to one day meet all of you amazing fellows infidels
Cheers !

Answering why I would like to join is difficult because I am unsure. Possible options are, for example, to regain the feeling of belonging being a Muslim gave me. That loss is very apparent and thus a void appears in this area, for an ex Muslim, by default. Maybe not however, maybe, instead, I seek some sort of revenge? I really don't know as I am not insensitive to the beauty of Islam but am just as awakened to the ignorance it has inflicted, and the impact that has had, on my life generally. For example, my parents, with whom I share a distant relation, both physical location and understanding, are not your typical backward type who can barely speak English etc. They're worse. They can speak English. They can bring up children, indoctrinated siblings for some, who then use pseudoscience, word salads and blatant shifting of the burden of proof, to make you look like an idiot. Worse, one who chooses to leave the correct path. Chooses to. This never sat comfortably with me. And this is the crux of my point. Islam teaches my parents I am wrong and ungrateful as I apparently choose to disobey by not having a conviction. Doubt is my sin. Their faith reminds them daily to stay away from a devil like me. Maybe it is revenge then? I don't know. I know I feel liberated having made this decision and I know I want to help those in my lonely position, especially those vulnerable and unable to help themselves.

Hi,
I'm an ex-muslim/atheist for over 15 years.
I've done work in my YouTube channel for years to raise awareness among Arabic speakers and deliver them non-biased content regarding religion and belief in general.
I've recently moved to the UK and this is when I was introduced to CEMB.

InternationalAdil AhmedKarachi

My both parents died when I was very young. The absence of my parents led me to think about life from a different perspective with an open mind. Therefore, in my early 20's I stopped caring about religion and believed that all religions are man made. I am 24 now. I believe more in people than in imaginary gods. This world is comprised of people and people should believe in themselves and take full responsibity of their lives rather having expectations from imaginary gods. I think human wisdom is enough to support people in hard times when they are in need of emotional support and they try to find that support throigh religion. People should be interdependent on each other rather depending on imaginary gods. Conflicts resolution should be made possible through discussions and debate. War and terrorism should be avoided at all cost and a peaceful method of resolution should be adopted. This world can become a better place to live without any religion!

UKabubaker khaleellondon

i am abubaker 26 year old guy from pakistan born and raised as a muslim. being in a strict muslim family its hard to do so many things and i used to think why a person is not allowed to do some things that makes him happy he should be free to make his life decisions. if he did something which is against islam as simple as sex without marriage he shouldnt be punished for that cox god can punish him after death but its not like that mentor take that matter in their hands which i dont find right so after coming to uk i can live life the way i want to and i find west society more peaceful then the muslim societies so that made me think and i tried to find a muslim country on this planet which is peaceful and i couldnt so that mean something is wrong with islam and this led me to leaving it and follow the simple rule humanity.

UKN AlamLondon

Hi,

I am an ex Muslim from Bangladesh currently living in London. My parents are strict Muslims. I am married, my wife and her family also live in UK. My in laws family members are strict muslims too. However, I was able to influence my wife and she is now an atheist. I left Bangladesh due to the fact that Bangladesh is an extremely unsafe country for atheists like myself. Even my friends were turning into enemy and I felt extremely isolated there. I pretty much hid my belief or lack of belief there. I am now more open about my belief. I am glad I am now living in a safe place where people don't hack atheists to death.

I would love to join a group of fellow atheists in London and share ideas with each other.

I hope to hear from you.

UKMuna MohamedLondon

I am Somali. I am also an ex-Muslim atheist. I am also proud yet in the closet. My family would never accept me and I would easily loose everyone close to me if I said anything against Islam or my disbelief. The Somali community is the same or if not more strict than the Arabs when it comes to Islam. I love my family, but I have to hide myself in order to be around them.

UKKubra QizilbashLondon

I always questioned my faith and felt restrained. I belong from an Asian background and my family values and culture forced me to pretend to be a practicing muslim.
I want to be myself and should have freedom of speech and expression. People around me are unable to understand, why I renounced Islam and became an ex-muslim. My family and friends have no courage to listen to me when I criticize Islam. I want to share my views with like minded people / community. Thank you

UKFakhrul IslamIlford

islam is a very hard religion to follow and if you do one mistake you get condemned for it by the local halwa eating maulvis

Internationalnajib ouadimarrakech

I'm so sick of how Muslim treat me and the way they look at me when they know I left that religion. I ve been telling some of my friends about that I'm athiest and they end up hating me and now I want to tell my family but I'm so scared they act the same :( really it's fucked up u they don't accept me just because think different it's sad for me

UKEunomiaWalsall

I started to doubt Islam when I met an ex-Muslim at university. I always had problems with women being considered to be inferior to men, but thought that Allah knew best. After speaking with other ex-Muslims about the inconcistencies in the Qur'an, I decided that I could leave Islam with a clear conscience. I have been a fully fledged Agnostic for a little longer than 2 years. I am already a member of the CEMB forum and go by the username "AGirlWithDoubts". I want to meet like-minded people who understand the struggle of leaving Islam. Please don't add my name to the public list of members. I would prefer to go by the pen name "Eunomia".

Internationaleylamogadishu

I come from a very strict Muslim family and this past summer I got a tattoo which, if you know, is forbidden in Islam. As a child I would always question about the point of religion and why I would be judged by 'Allah' if everything was predestined for me. I knew there was a flaw in what I was taught but nevertheless, I still went to the mosque. My mother decided to take us to Somalia (yes, one of the most dangerous countries in the world) this year to try and get us back to our "culture & religion" but I've realized that I reject Islam. There are no rights for women here in Somalia and the misogyny and sexism are rife. What's even more frustrating is that I, as an educated young woman I experience misogyny from my male family members every day simply for the fact that I have a vagina and the 'Quran' makes it clear that women are not 'equal' to men. My own mother has started to force me and my sister to do other (male) cousins chores in our own house simply because we are women and it's our 'duty'. From her own mouth, she said 'you're worth half of what a man is' and she wholeheartedly supports this claim. I cannot (as I fear for my life as the penalty for apostasy in Somalia is death) tell her or any of my family members, I'm no longer a Muslim. They have made it apparent that anyone who leaves Islam should be put to death. For a while, I thought I was the only one who was the only ex Muslim alive but now I know I'm not alone. There are others who have seen the light.

Hey

And don’t believe any religion

InternationalFreedom FighterMogadishu

Hello!
I want to join the ex Muslim community because I've finally come to terms with the lies I've been fed my whole life. I'm from a devout Muslim family and since I was a child I was forced to go to mosque and prayer school. But now since my mother has brought us here in somalia I've realised that I don't believe in anything I was taught. I'm starting to think she suspected my lack of faith when I got a tattoo and stopped going to mosque, so to keep us from straying the path, she brought us to somalia. I live a double life here and pretend to pray because if I don't, my family will kill me. They don't value anything but Islam and It feels like I'm suffocating. As you can imagine, Al-Shabab is a very dangerous terrorist group and they have a few supporters around, so if they hear that I'm no longer a Muslim, well you can image how things will go.
The only time I feel like myself is when I read what other ex Muslims have gone thought and it brings joy to me that I'm not alone.

Please hide my email address- I fear for my safety at this time due to my location.

UKOmar SulemanSwindon

I grew up in a rather liberal Islamic household, therefore it was slightly easier for me to leave the religion. Having said this, I do consider myself lucky. I know this is not the case for most ex-Muslims.
I joined CEMB because we as non-believers need a strong community and people to know we exist.

UKBilal ahmed qureshilondon

Basically i was a rebel since my childhood.There were so many things i never liked about islam but I couldn't say them because i was born in a muslim dominated country where they have only one choice for people like me is to either kill them or boycott them.I was never made for this one sided love for religion where you bow down for everything it says and never say no and i was also tired of muslim society's hypocrisy as well where they always show you their innocent face.All this and so much more was in my mind when i came landed in england and found myself in a comfort zone where there is no one forces me to practice anything and i can freely say that yes I don't believe in anything or in other words ex-muslim.I found this forum through a friend of mine and would love to meet like minded people.

UKNajima MohamedLeicester

I'm a 20 year old student who left islam 4 months ago. Although, i don't live at home i'm still not free to be who i want at the moment. I'll soon be finished with my university studies and need to make some big decisions of where i am going to go with my life next. I'd like to join the council so i can find somewhere, where there are like minded people like me and hopefully some help and guidance.

InternationalMay WarrickDubai

As I been muslim for 16years, i always gone to mosque whenever my dad take and sometimes by myself, well i always ask god about helps. like my mom says. god fulfills your ever wishes but none. I got sooooooo many troubles in my life, being teen boy i cried allot in my days. and i don't like this religions not because of this it's because there are soo many rules and restrictions and like what not do like what to do. and like i hate the part is why womens not allowed to mosque?? becuase of some women who died once when there was bayan? I see my mom doing prayer it's soo sad being cruel, it's like sooo many things occurred my life. i was looking here for some ex-muslims or who don't like this religion anymore (I am looking for forward to be friend).

UKUmrah ShafiManchester

Hello,
So throughout my teen years, I've been coming to terms with the fact that I don't believe in Allah or Islam. I've never really agreed with the use of the hijab and I'd say I'm quite lucky that mother was "respectful" of my decision not to wear one. I believe there are a lot of double standards between the genders. many of my older cousins are slowly being married off and the idea of an arranged marriage is becoming more and more real. I also realised recently how religious my family are. The only segregated weddings I've been to in the past 5 years have been my cousins.
I'm struggling with the fact that my mother is expecting me to move straight back in with the family when my degree is over, maybe she'll have a change of heart over the next three years but that idea is daunting. They also expect me home every weekend, which is getting exhausting.
I don't know if any of this made sense.
