I think u are still young instead do more research and then come up with a decision, there is no need to rush things especially when it comes to religion because it's not an overnight process. I advice you to do more research about Islam and reach the whole quran with the meaning and try to understand it. this is just another test that u have to overcome. in my opinion u should try to avoid saying that u want to leave religion because that fact that u was born a Muslim is the greatest gift in itself u should feel blessed everyday that u are Muslim. also missing out on what food pork u want to eat pork which is haram for a reason they are dirty animals, God is protecting you from such things hence there are rules that like he loves you and u should give the same love and attention. it doesn't matter what age you are but when ever someone leaves a religion or joins a religion they have to give a lot of thought and understanding to their choice. I hope u get back on track and don't loose hope. I also suggest you pray and follow the 5 pillars where appropriate and try to feel spiritual but if u feel like u can't do it and just don't want to do it then the rest Is up to you. also understand the situation u are in when I comes to Muslim parents and at the end of the day there job is to tell u what is right and wrong and they have done that then the rest is up to you because at the end if the day u will solely get judged by and Allah and will get questioned for ur choices and actions, not ur parents so once again give it a lot of thought. I suggest u get back in track and include urself in holy things try to feel spiritual. Islam is not a joke yes it may seem a little unfair but in reality it is not because the book and teaching don't change but our understanding does and how we judge it so we have to be open minded. I hope u understand where I am coming from and change for the better. may Allah guide u, u are in my prayers.

Oh boy, what a thoughtful and objective answer :rolleyes:

OP, do some reading from both sides. See arguments for the religion in question, and for being non-religious. Do note that most pro-religion material will be biased, but try to evaluate the evidence for the claims they make. If there's anything specific you're struggling with, let us know, it will be good to discuss it.

Best of luck.

Wrong. There is no evidence to support any religion, so it's only possible to be biased towards religion.

Whilst people are free to believe what they want, that must not be confused with the fact that unevidenced, incredible claims have zero credibility.

Perhaps, but as the other poster said, the burden of proof is on the religious, and it hasn't been met yet. However, many apologists will act as if there is evidence (such as Jesus's resurrection, obscure prophecies) and will do mental backflips to rationalise immoralities in scripture (slavery, wife beating, genocide to name a few) which is simply disingenuous. I do concede that the atheistic side can misinterpret scripture and overplay certain things, but not being convinced of an existence of a creator god (or gods) due to lack of evidence is the rational position.

pretending to be Muslim is a very bad idea, if she wants to
not be Muslim then be open there's no need to hide and fake

so why do many muslim communities and families look down on, disown, emotionally abuse and even threaten their children if they leave islam? I've even heard parents say that 'under islam, I wouldn't class them as my son/daughter if they left the religion'

You need to realise the consequences of this decision.
If you leave Islam, what will you benefit? If you don't leave Islam, you won't lose anything. I know why people think about doing this, they haven't been educated properly. You see, Islam isn't just strict rules that one has to abide to, it's about being there for God so that you can benefit after you die. Life isn't just about fun and games, but that one has to have a balance of it. God will ask you 'what have you done in the life I have given you?' and what will you respond? I'm just trying to help out here, but the other fellow users don't seem to help you out here as they sadly have a bad image of Islam.

Not with the rulings on apostasy and hypocrites (munafiqun).
