I solidarity believe religion is a personal growth of an individual and God. Islam the 'religion of peace' profoundly forbids freedom of choice and if you think 'otherwise' you will face consequences based on personal choice. I am glad that the world, slowly but steady is moving forward and more and more of ex-Muslims and LGBT Muslims have come together to create an accepting community where they can stand united against Islam and its immoral conservative sharia rules.

i did lost my fate in the religious in the past year 2017

UKJaffar Raza JamsheadBatley, West Yorkshire

I took the decision to leave Islam in June 2017. From the age of 2 to about the age of 17, I'd been heavily indoctrinated by my mother in particular. Then I started to do my own thinking after reading several works by several authors. But deciding to leave was probably the most difficult decision I made - it took me seven years of denial to finally face the truth. I have only come out to a handful of people, but my mother is suspicious and her mere suspicion has caused her to alienate herself from me. I came out to three of my best friends since junior school, trusting that - of all people - they'd understand, considering how much we've been through as a clique and their open-mindedness up until then. All three of them have since cut off relations with me. I've been trying to put the pieces of my identity back together but it's been difficult, especially because of the social isolation. I desperately crave the company and conversation of like-minded people who share similar experiences. A place to share ideas and discuss and participate in group, community and humanitarian activities.

I no longer believe in religion yet I'm forced to pray, fast and wear hijab

UKMd. Habibullah KhanLondon

I left Bangladesh at 2011. At the time of living in Bangladesh i faced many problems regarding religious matters. Whenever asked about Namaz and other daily religious activities i replied boldly that i am not still regular at these activities.Again, other religious activities i talked about went against them because they are very rigid at those matters.I always talked about humanity,against racism and religious violence. For these activities my life was almost in threat and pressure used to came on my family.I am not against religion but not rigid type,rather humanistic.

UKPenelope PP

I've been an ex Muslim for a number of years now. I was brought up in a pretty strict Muslim household, yet strangely enough my father wasn't 'strict' on some issues, such as marriage.
I've questioned certain parts of Islam since when I was a girl, I've always had issues with homophobia, apostasy, women's lack of rights, sex outside or marriage etc.
I also wondered about this hell that some people have an obsession with, I used to wonder why non-Muslims that I met, who were good people would go to hell, when there were some horrible Muslim people.
It was pretty easy for me to leave Islam, as after the death of my parents I only had my sister left-so no uncles, aunt's, cousins etc-as most of them are in Pakistan.
This helped me so very much to leave Islam, as there were no nosey relatives spying on me, or reporting things to my parents, wanting me to get married off etc.
I also learned to lie and hide my true feelings and actions from my parents-I know this is not ideal, but it worked for me at that time.
In fact all of my friends were non-Muslim when I left, so I didn't have to go through the painful and hurtful ordeal people often have to go through, where they lose most or all of their Muslim friends, and of course issues arise with parents or relatives.

The reason I want to join is because I would like to listen to people, help them and be there for them if I can in any way.
Even if I can't help-maybe somebody can talk to me and talking can very often help people.

I am a new ex Muslim .I have watched all your youtub videos which are the best in unveiling the truth about islam

InternationalMarina KhanSydney

I moved to Australia as an international student in 2009. I am originally from Pakistan but grew up in the Middle East. Questioning my religion is something I have done for as long as I can remember. While I don’t come from an extremely conservative family, they do identify as Muslim and claim to do the best they can to be a good Muslim which I did for a long time myself. Recently however, I realised that I was beginning to get frustrated and started getting into arguments with friends or family on little things like talking about getting a tattoo, trying alcohol, eating non-halal food. When you’re a Muslim, the word ‘haram’ hits you like a huge insult. That’s haram!! Everything that I felt like doing was haram. My first response was no - God doesn’t hate me because I got a tattoo, God doesn’t hate me because I drink alcohol responsibly, God doesn’t hate me because I am a good person and I try to be honest and do the right thing for people, for the environment, for the community, as much as it is possible. I found some peace in separating religion and God and came up with my own theories of Islam and Allah. But I learnt with time that that wasn’t Islam and what I am doing can’t be classified as being Muslim. Therefore, to be completely honest to myself I had to come to terms with the fact that I was no longer Muslim, if I ever was. I read a few different translations of the Quran with a very open mind as an attempt to make rational meanings from the text but I just couldn’t. In fact, I got annoyed over how a book, that defines the way of life for a massive religious community, can be so vague and open the discretionary interpretation of the growing number of religious factions within islam. And I couldn’t understand how the very clearly written passages around misogyny, hate, homophobia etc. can be interpreted any other way than they are written. I have gotten in various arguments with friends over this. My family doesn’t know I’m not a Muslim anymore and think that my questioning will just stop one day and I’ll come back to the “right path” one day.

InternationalPhilippe BRUNOParis

I've been an Atheist since I was 7, when I was fired from sunday school for "asking too many disturbing questions"... I am a skeptic and involved in the defense of the "laïcité", the French secularist model of society. We face here a major attempt from islamism to subdue our institutions, and I'm convinced that one of our best way to fight this entrism is to help all ex-muslims to be heard by the Muslim community and the government, such as Waleed al-Husseini. I think it is very important that all the atheists movement unite in this fight for the liberty of conscience and expression throughout the world, from London to Austin from Cairo to Paris...

UKGary MorrisLeeds

I am an Ex muslim who reverted back to my UK Name I was known as Hamza Ahmed.

I fully support the EX muslim principles of highlighting that which is islam.

With the promotion of islam as a 'peaceful religion' I feel it integral to share the realities of islam the realities Ayaan Hirsi Ali experience and how the LGBT communities which I belong to face in islam and islamic countries worldwide. That all peoples deserve a choice.

I would truly like to join this fabulous organisation Please. Thank you. Gary

InternationalAladdin ElgendyCairo

Born and raised in Cairo Egypt, I think global exposure and getting to know other cultures than the one you were brought into gives you an idea of the human condition on our lonely planet and the lonely existence of this consciousness I wake up every day to. All wronge knowing, simply can not survive. I think slowly the human condition is remembering that which can not be lost.

InternationalQumail ReshiSrinagar

I brought up in a Muslim Sunni family obviously a moderate one However, my sceptic nature changes me into an agnostic atheist.
All thanks to Dr Zakir Naik who usually talks about science and logic which unfortunately not found in Quran or Hadith and Salafi sect admires me to get more sceptic about religion and faith.


I born and raised in Pakistan. I began to feel senseless things in Islam at the age of 15 through out that i wasn't able to question anything even to my parents and relatives i can't have a debate in my school otherwise will be killed or prosecuted as it is in Pakistan. However now i want represent myself as a proud Atheist and ex muslim, show my opinions and disbelief to the world without any fear. Which is a right every human being born with. #TimeToReason
