You might be interested in watching this video. Use translationApp because it is in Arabic.

And a bit of context here. "The Other" is a YouTube channel run by atheists from the Middle East. And many young Muslims are questioning everything about Islam and the reason? Thanks to the internet they have access to the entire Islamic literary tradition in Arabic. And Islamic literary tradition is full of utter disasters.

This video is about a bizarre story in the Qur'an that Muhammad was accused of stealing some of the loot in one of his raids. The Islamic literary tradition fills the gaps in the story. Muhammad is accused of stealing a "piece of red velvet" (under ware may be?) ! No I'm not joking. Why would he steal a piece of red velvet? Bizarre indeed.

Here is the video

More disasters? Many young both men and women in Egypt are making fun of Sheikh al-Azhar who is telling them to not mix together and women should be wearing the much hated al-Hijab

Here from the Arabic BBC

Islam will change for the better many be not in India and Pakistan but the source of the change will be from young people in the Middle East thanks to the internet
