I will be honest, for almost 10 years I have tried to "forget" or to push back the thought of being atheist... Islam isn't really known for taking atheists well especially those that were born Muslim. I would love to have a group of people just like me! People that have gone through this. Have gone through the divorce process that is Islam and their identity. I don't know any ex Muslims. For the longest time I thought they never existed. I hope to learn from others, regardless of cultural background. I want to join this group to have a support network, one that I hope to partake in ( once I have reached that point in this process) so that I can help others. especially people that are young adults and are dependent on Muslims in their communities ( parents/relatives) for housing or support. I hope to learn how to aid others and learn from many other ex muslims what they went through and how life is for them now.
