Thanks a lot for your reply, Dhimmi. I agree with you completely. You are so right about the word "Islamophobia". I was called racist by my ex whenever I found something alarming in Islam! Racist! Someone needed a good dictionary to learn basic meanings of basic words to use them properly.

In fact, one of the things that made me questioned all was the he had a good amount of surahs memorised and was completely obsessed with memorising as much as possible. He talked proudly about the "full-hafiz" children he met in here. Of course, he wanted his children full-hafiz. It was like a dream for him. For those who don't know the term, it refers to those persons who have memorised the Qur'an completely. Well, my ex didn't speak Arabic at all nor did know much of what he was reciting (chanting) countless times (that was one of my recurrent complaints). Why can't one pray in their mother tongue? For me, it makes no sense. He only knew some words and memorised what surahs were about. He used to reply that Arabic is God's language and that we all would talk Arabic one day, that it didn't matter I didn't understand the language but that language put me close to God. Wow. He used to say "The day is close when the whole world is "reverted" (not converted! You know well why) to Islam because it's the only one and True religion". The rest were the religions of stupids. Stupid minds that were in need to be repaired. As for this, my family was insulted. And of course, I knew that after marriage, he would have made me relinquish to my family too, as a Muslim can't befriend a kafir. Isolation is one of the first things they do to leave their victims without their support system and allows them to brainwash them without any intervention. Beware, girls!

Thanks again for your response and your nice wishes. All the best for you too.

And keep doing it so well!
