Earlier this year, Federal authorities broke up an FGM network in the United States that had mutilated unknown numbers of young girls. The FGM network was linked to the Muslim sect of the Dawoodi Bohra. Now a Canadian survey shows that a disturbingly high percentage of Muslim Dawoodi Bohra women have undergone FGM.

Does the Quran show that Muhammad made up revelations in order to benefit himself and to respond to situations in his life or do we see it being the ultimate work of a creator from above?

Summary: 

In this paper, we will discuss a contentious theory on the Muslim qibla, or the direction of prayer, of the first mosques in the earliest period of Islamic history. A small, defiant, and largely discredited group of Orientalists have argued that the early mosques were not oriented toward Makkah, but somewhere in northern Arabia or even Jerusalem, a theory that challenges the Muslim belief that the earliest mosques were directed toward the Kʿabah. The notion that early mosques were oriented toward northern Arabia/Jerusalem insidiously suggests the possibilities that the earliest Muslims did not pray toward Makkah and that the Islamic traditon of a qibla facing Kʿabah was a later development, hidden from history by some sort of a conspiracy. The divisive appeal behind such a theory is rather obvious when we consider that it has been chiefly propagated by Western scholars such as Patricia Crone and Michael Cook. Dutifully parroting this theory is Joseph Smith, an assiduous Christian missionary whose anti-Islamic propaganda is largely restricted to the internet.

These are the main issues I found with Islam.  If you want to understand the real problems I found, start here.

Reflections

Dialogues and discussions I had after leaving Islam.  Some thoughts

Rulings/Fiqh

These are not why I left Islam.  They are reflections after leaving Islam.  Keep in mind that even if I was completely wrong about every single one of these, it would not make me come back to Islam.  As a Secular Humanist, I find these to be troubling issues we find and they seem to show that Allah is not the intelligent supreme being that sent us a beautiful wise religion but rather a 7th century invention with barbaric rules and orders that matched that early era but do not belong in today’s world.

History

Sometimes history is not what it seems

A bill in Quebec that would force people to be unmasked when in receipt of a public service has been amended to include public transport which could see wearers of the Islamic full face veil banned from using local buses. Bill 62 in the Quebec National Assembly would make it impossible for anyone wearing a mask or face covering to offer or receive public services, Canadian public broadcaster CBC reports. The bill, which was originally proposed in 2015, has been the subject of controversy in the province with some a

Hadith as source of Islamic history

 

Besides this, the Hadith is the source of the history of Islam. If we do not consider its reports to be reliable, we cannot believe with certainty that Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman and Ali -- may God be pleased with them -- were Companions of the Holy Prophet, who succeeded him in this order, and also died in this order. If Hadith is considered unreliable, then there is no evidence to definitely believe that these holy personages existed. It would be possible, in that case, that all these names were fictitious, and in fact there had not been an Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman or Ali, because according to Mr Ata Muhammad, the objector, all these traditions are isolated, and these names are not given in the Holy Quran. So according to this principle, they cannot be accepted as authentic. Similarly, the Holy Prophet Muhammad’s father having the name Abdullah, his mother having the name Amina, and his grandfather having the name Abdul Muttalib; one of his wives being called Khadija, one Aishah and one Hafsa, and his wet-nurse being called Halima; the Holy Prophet’s withdrawing to the cave of Hira for worship, the emigration of some of his Companions to Abyssinia, his staying in Makka for ten years after the Call, and then all those battles no mention of which is to be found in the Holy Quran -- all these facts are known only from Hadith. Should all of these be denied on the grounds that Hadith is not reliable? If this is true, Muslims would not be able to give any details of the life of the Holy Prophet, may peace and the blessings of God be upon him.

More than three-quarters believe that the Labour Party’s stance on Israel have stoked rising levels of bigotry while Islamist extremism is cited as their biggest concern. The YouGov poll, commissioned as part of a report by the Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA), also found that more than half felt the justice system is not doing enough to combat the problem. It comes as figures obtained under a Freedom of Information request showed a 45 per cent rise in anti-Semitic crime since 2014.

Summary: 
  • One need not go back centuries to the Muslim conquest of the Christian late classical world -- the medieval Barbary corsair raids, the Ottoman yoke in Central and Eastern Europe or the slave markets of Kaffa in Tatar Muslim Crimea -- to understand that this violence clearly predates the European colonial era, the creation of the modern state of Israel, or the issue of climate change.

  • Countries such as China, Nigeria or Kenya that are not Western, not"imperialist", not whatever the excuses that Islamists make, are still spectacularly attacked by similar stabbings. Month on month, there seems almost nowhere that Islamic terror did not strike.

  • Volumes of revered Islamic texts establish in great detail the grounds of violence and oppression of non-believers and those deemed heretical. These supposed grounds -- made alive daily in madrassas and mosques across the world before being acted upon by religiously-trained terrorists -- are childishly dismissed by Western liberals as immaterial.

  • The first step towards a solution is to question the received knowledge tirelessly dished out by media pundits in the West. What is lacking is simply seeing a huge body of evidence of theological justification for Islamist terror.

Summary: 

It is all part of a much bigger pattern. Elsewhere, I have recently explained the strange British and European sickness whereby we don’t really have the societal fortitude to deal with (or even address) problems such as the organised gang-rape of children and console ourselves by attacking anyone willing to acknowledge the truth. We attack the response to the problem because we lack the societal fortitude to address the problem. You have to stand back to recognise the full consequence of such societal sickness. Imagine if Shah, Corbyn and their eggers-on among the Twittering classes were able to summon up even a quarter of the rage they reserved for Kavanagh and Champion, and saved it instead for the rapists who brand their initials on girls they regard as ‘chattel’

Summary: 
  • Turkey has now become the first and only NATO member state that teaches "jihad" in its schools. Although the Turkish government claims that "jihad" means a "spiritual inner struggle for salvation," the official Turkish dictionary defines it as a "war fought in the name of religion."

Summary: 

Why are most of the terrorists in the West drawn from the small percentage of our population who are Muslims? This book makes it perfectly clear that Islam is a religion of war and conquest, and that this is precisely how Islam was viewed in the West, right up until thousands of innocent Americans were wiped out on 9/11. The book shows how, since year 1 of the Islamic calendar, Jihad has been the fundamental component leading to Islam's success. And the book proves that this account of Islam was known by the educated elite across the West for centuries. We prove that "Islam is a Religion of Peace" is The Grand Lie of the 21st century, a form of Holocaust Denial refusing to recognize the endless slaughter of non-Muslims by Muslims. 
In addition to the 100 page Introduction showing how in just 20 years the lies of the elite have turned the notion of Islam upside-down, the book contains an entire Koran, decrypted by placing the parts of the Koran into chronological order - thus demonstrating that Islam was a failure until Mohammed started to make killing unbelievers an act of worship within Islam. Within minutes of looking at our presentation of the Koran you will understand why so much terrorism comes from the small minority who are Muslims. Moreover, you will understand why many other Muslims are not taking an active role in the vanguard of Jihadi terrorism. You will see laid bare the Koran's obsession with non-Muslims and Islam's obsession with wiping out any belief system that is not Islamic.

The problem with Islamic terrorism gets worse by the year. Politicians, clergy, teachers are lying to you and your children. They are working to enable the violent Islamic takeover of the West. When the state and the professional classes are aligned with Islam, you owe it to your family to learn the true scale of the problem.
