    This thread is for discussion between ex-Muslims and about leaving Islam. As leaving Islam can be a very difficult situation, I believe it would be helpful to have a platform to be able to discuss it, share experiences and help each other if we're going through tough or uncertain times. So discuss away!



    MOD EDIT:

    This society has been approved by the D&CA moderation team and is subject to the same rules as all other Religion forum societies. That means:

    No structured, formal debating should take place in this thread
    This thread may be used for informal on-topic and sensible off-topic chat
    No preaching/proselytizing
    No Muslim vs ex-Muslim fights

    In short, please respect the right of others to discuss matters which you may not
    personally agree with.

    Users who do not adhere to these guidelines will be warned/banned as appropriate

    Thanks Xotol and everyone else (including some of our Muslim supporters ^) for making this happen.

    Does anyone have any ex-Muslim-related resources to suggest?

    My primary go-to place is the Council of Ex-Muslims forum which is a fantastic space filled with lovely people:

    Their twitter is worth following, too:

    There are plenty on twitter. CEMB is the one stop though. Not much else.

    Here's another ex-Muslim forum: Reddit.com/r/exmuslim
    I haven't checked that out in eons, and of course the first thing I see on there:

    'Tomatoes are Christian,' Egyptian Salafi group warns

    The message caused outrage among Facebook users, which prompted the group to clarify their warning, saying they did not tell people not to eat tomatoes. "We said don’t cut it in [such a way that it reveals] the cross shape.”
    :lol:

    It's satire, by the way.

    So happy that this has happened. I genuinely didn't think an ex-Muslim society would be created!

    Is there an ex-muslim meme posting thing around?

    So why did you guys leave Islam?
    For me, science made more sense than superficial nonsense that was written in a book. I wasn't really even following Islam to begin with. The religion I was following was something I believed was Islam, but wasn't.

    Sadly? Rather, thankfully.

    Thankfully there are a lot of people like me who have freed themselves from the shackles of superstition and religion.
    You misunderstood me.

    Great to see this created. In my experiences, normally, ex-Muslims tend to be really insular and unwilling to talk about their feelings when leaving Islam; mainly due to social alienation and stigma.

    I recommend CEMB, really helped me as well!

    A very small victory for one lack of belief
    No, I think this thread is a victory for you. Your beliefs are just as valid as the beliefs of others. You both have no knowledge so why should anyone judge either of you differently??

    Equality is best.

    My lack of belief in devils, angels, jinns, black magic and flying horses is just as equally valid as a Muslim's belief in them?

    Absolutely!!!

    Why should one belief outrank a lack of belief or a belief? None of you know it's true, you just believe or choose to "lack belief" for your own subjective reasons!

    You are all equal and the same!

    Please stop debating in this thread. If you'd like to discuss the idea that no belief system is superior to another, please create a new thread in the Philosophy forum. Thanks :yy:

    Please, stay on-topic. The OP quite clearly states that this isn't the place for Muslim vs ex-Muslim/non-Muslim debate. Thank you.
