This is your friendly Ex-Muslim. Most of us are straight. We don’t have to worry about being in a relationship, holding hands, giving a peck on the cheek or kissing our loved one, or showing our love in any way. We are privileged enough to not have to worry about “coming out” or “getting married”.
People sometimes wonder when you left Islam were people trying to kill you. No, for me it wasn’t like that. People weren’t trying to kill me. I had all different types of people trying to help me. I was well known in the community as a convert because I converted from Ismailism right. So I had a ton of friends everybody loved me. They were trying to help me to come back to Islam. (more…)
We are now seeing how fickle the Muslim community’s support and “love” is. They went from fawning over a Muslim convert to hating him in a matter of days. We are seeing that Islam is a one-way street. Once you enter, you can’t leave it. Or you can…but at great risk. We’re seeing how conditional the Muslim community’s love is. But I already knew that. I went from beloved to hated in a matter of weeks over leaving Islam. But this isn’t about me.
This is your friendly ex-Muslim. So a Muslim woman by the name Ginrabah1996 has been making some TikToks about atheism and atheists.

So you’re Muslim and you’re against blasphemy of Islam. That means you’re against anyone criticizing, attacking, offending, or mocking anything about your religion. You don’t support the people’s right to say and post any of this “blasphemous” stuff. You think it should be illegal. Maybe you even think it should be punishable by death or jail time. Let me ask you a question: Who was the first blasphemer in Islam? (more…)
