Dear Ayesha,

I read your comments again and again to find out what leads you to leave Islam. I knew your previous comments which attacks person of Muhammed. I still think that the biography of Muhammed 4 you is not main reason but just a mask. Why?

(1) People usually question the existence of God not personal life of a messenger.

(2) You never mentioned the name of Allah. You used to worship Allah not Muhammed, peace upon him. That's not normal.

(3) Instead of denying Allah verbally you told us you have your own God that is suitable to your character.
This is what I understood from your sentence "I feel much more free and happy now and am much more confident of my God's approval of my character "

"one God for each character" wow. What a luxury. No rules Great X.
This is not new for me I heard this from an ex-Christians. This is 21 st century. People leaves their original religions and create their own God in their minds.

You wrote that
"From what I read I could never stay muslim"

It doesn't matter what you read people like you can't be belong to any religion. You don't like rules do you?
You wrote that
"Every time I went to mosque imam scared the hell out of me. Not any more."

This is what you absorbed from what you listened to others. If imam was boring and telling the same thing again and again this was your problem. There are good and bad doctors like good bad imams. This is so normal. Why didn't you look for good imams?

You wrote that
"I realized muslims were kept in fold through fear of hell fire. Mullahs and imams started disgusting me. "

Genuine believers never believe God just because of the fear of hell. False logic.
If you don't believe God there is no hell. That´s so simple.
If Mullahs and imams were talking about heaven would you be happy as a Muslim? Again false logic. Hell and heaven point the end not the start.

You wrote that
"Ther is no going back. I know too much."

I do not agree that you know much. You lost your faith by reading hadiths. What a pity. Buhari confirmed 4000 hadiths out of 600 000 (ratio : 1/150). People used to fabricate many hadith.

I don't believe any hadith or article about our messenger, which has different meaning than what Quran says. No matter how trustworthy the narrators may have been. You tell me who also told this in the history of Islam if you know too much.

I have been reading the biography of our messenger, written by a Muslim historian. It is almost 600 pages. It is especially written to answer all the allegations. I read also the book written by non Muslim Historians about him. None of them call our messenger as a criminal. Only narrow minds dare to insult the great founder of Islamic civilization. Who cares?

It seems that you can NOT go back. Arrogance don't suit Islam. I told the same thing to another ex-Muslim who appeared on this website before. He told us he doesn't believe in God. This is what happens to ex-Muslims.

Good luck, what else I can say.
