    I have been brought up to be an Ahmadi Muslim but over time I have started doubting the religion. Recently, I have discovered that I do not agree with the religion at all and would like to stop wearing the head scarf (which i was forced to wear) and want to stop following the teachings of Islam. However, if I leave Islam, my family will dis-own me and I know this as my uncle and aunt left Islam and the whole family has lost contact with them. What should I do?
    If your family will disown you and kick you out then unfortunately the only option may be waiting it out until you're financially independent and then you'll be able to do what you like.

    There are many types of muslims.
    The prophet Mahmmed (SAW) said: "my Ummah will be divided into seventy-three sects, one of which will be in Paradise and seventy-two will be in the Fire." It was said, O Messenger of Allaah, who are they? He said, "Al-Jamaa’ah..."
    Maybe the reason why you are confused and dont have any answers means that you are under the incorrect sect
    If you decide to change your sect you dont have to tell your parents and you wont have to leave Islam. But leaving the religion is too extreme! out of all the religions Islam is the only one that makes sense.
    If you want any more advice you can PM me. I wavered one, just like you and that experience made me a stronger muslim.
    Inshallah I'll pray for Allah to guide you sister.

    I strongly discourage leaving the religion. Many have sacrificed their lives so you could become Muslim. Also, you are an Ahmadiyya. You should instead, switch to normal Islam as one of the beliefs of Ahmadiyya is believing in an extra prophet.

    Brother dw you do not need to embark on any formal process to leave the religion of Islam, as you mention you are an Ahmadi, in the most bluntest but truest of words you are not a Muslim so I reconsider your question as your fear of leaving the Ahmadiyya community and encountering hostility as a result. In which case I'd advise you to curse the culture in your heart, conceal your beliefs and openly express them the moment you feel you are in safety.
    Curious how in debates/discussions about terrorism, Muslims will often come up with a variant of "there are 1.6 billion Muslims in the world and most of them aren't terrorists", but then those same people say "Ahamadi aren't Muslims, Sufis aren't Muslims, Shias aren't Muslims" etc. Nice to see they only use the large numbers when it suits them and don't when they want to highlight the perceived superiority of their own sect...

    Even if you exclude the other sects, Sunnis make up 90% which is a predominant majority.

    The point still stands that they’ll group all sects in together to make a number point, but won’t believe they’re all Muslims in practice.

    There are no groups in Islam. Idiotic people have taken it into their own hands and formed random groups which doesn't make sense.

    Theirs only one authentic group in Islam and that is known as Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama'aah. This belongs in the one and only sunni sect.

    However that said we still accept them even if they are following different Imams or sects. We are all one at the end of the day.

    I do understand the reason behind the headscarf, which is that a woman should protect her beauty from all men apart from her husband, however I find it unfair how males don't have to cover themselves. This religions standards are what I don't like, men are seen to be superior and women inferior.
    Yes, I see were you’re going. But you’re saying that you don’t understand this religion. Aren’t all religions male dominant and sexist. In fact, Christianity for instance has more sexist comments in the Old Testament than all religions put together. I believe religions are really old fashioned now and people need to put these childish things under the carpet, whilst live reality. But the Qur’an does tell men to cover up too and lower their gaze. I guess the traditional and bigot way of looking at women is that they need more protection in a male dominated society - this shouldn’t be the case though. Women should feel safe with or without clothes. Even christianity for instance tells women to cover their hair but I think the bias in the Bible and the fact that it has been changed many times has led to people to look down upon Old Testament. I myself am a Agnostic and believe that there’s nothing more sensible than believing that Gods existence is unknowable to the human intellect.

    What nonsense, of course there are many sects of Islam! It’s not surprising that you, as a Sunni, claim Sunnism is correct. Similarly, a Shia will say their interpretation is the correct one, an Ahmadi theirs etc.

    If your family would disown you because you chose not to follow a religious doctrine then do they love you for who you are or what they want you to be.

    That may sound cold but when my family found out I was an atheist it was difficult to take for some of them but they didn't disown me.

    I am still the son of my parents, the brother of my sister etc. I just happen to be a 20yr old with me own adult opinions.

    To all those Muslims asking, pleading and advising her to stay. You are all selfish and self centered. There is a girl i know who was brought up in a muslim family and a devote muslim, she took her time to study and meditate on the sayings of quran and found at that they were all contradicting itself and it was all lies.
    I dont want to go deep in to the quran and reveal some lies but if you all that are claiming to be muslims, remove the blindfold from your eyes and be open minded and take your time to study the quran from the beginning to the end. You will see all the contradictions, falsehood and even bad things that Mohammad did clearly written there( someone who confessed to being possessed by demons, not to mention where women and child were being slaughtered)
    Please study and meditate and dont listen to people, check it yourself and you will see everything bodly written
