Have there been Muslims who preach Islam in a way that makes you want to vomit, or even consider apostasy? Have there been people coming at you with those big beards, throwing Quran verses and hadiths at you for a shock effect? Do you live in a Muslim country where scholars refuse to denounce domestic violence, honor killings, oppression of non-muslims, women, and other shameful acts? Do you live in a Muslim country where their views of Islam are shaped by the culture and ways of life? And when you object to them, they say you're misguided, or just a non-Muslim for not following them? Doesn't it annoy you that so many misguided people use this religion to promote hatred and bloodshed? Doesn't it annoy you how so many people in this religion overreact and resort to extreme measures? Doesn't it annoy you MORE when those who engage in any of the above cause Muslims to become insecure about Islam, and even become apostates?

If you think people leave Islam just because they want to drink or have sex outside of marriage, then you're an idiot. You fit in with the above morons who think they're getting extra judgment day points by using Islam to suit their emotions and stupidity. It's becoming increasingly difficult to remain a part of this ummah with all the lunatics we sadly produce. And if you can't see this then YOU HAVE NO FAITH, and you don't want to admit the problems that are affecting many young Muslims.

It's becoming increasingly difficult to be a Muslim today because of what happens in the name of our religion. Every single day someone or some group does something ridiculous in the name of Islam. And you know what? Those morons who use this religion for violence, hatred, stupidity, and oppression DON'T CARE what we have to go through. To them, they're doing God a favor by presenting Islam this way. They think they're getting extra judgment day points by causing hatred and fear!

It is so painful to see how many bullies we have in this religion of ours. We have people in Islam who show no mercy, who are unforgiving, who will do their best to bring you down, who will do their best to embarrass you, who will do their best to insult and degrade. It makes me wonder, how are we suppose to have inner peace and full confidence in Islam when these people are running around and targeting us?

Some Islamic websites that need to be avoided

Before seeing these ridiculous websites, you might want to read the following first:

http://mymuslimthoughts.blogspot.ca/2015/04/does-culture-influence-our-views-on.html

Something we have to realize is that certain Islamic websites will twist Islam to their liking. They will quote verses out of context, and they will rely on salafi/wahhabi hadiths, ESPECIALLY when it comes to the topic about women.

So let's begin. This first one if called Quran.mu, and it is horrible. Not only does the Maulana (unfortunately) misquote several Quran verses and rely on salafi/wahhabi hadiths, he attacks pro gender equality Muslims and equates them with wanting sex. If you want to puke see here: http://www.quran.mu/mixing-of-sexes-in-islam.html. They have a whole section on women, and it is the usual stupidity of them being needed to be burka covered housewives and be segregated from society.

The second one is called The Muslim Woman. It is a Saudi based website, and again, has the usual women needing to be burka covered housewives because the authors say so because they read Islam.
*EDIT*- It turns out this website has closed down! Thank Allah for that!

This last one (for now) is based out of South Africa, called the Majlis. This website is very anti-salafi, which normally would be a good thing. However, these guys are pretty screwed up, since deobandis are just as mental. I first noticed this in 2012, when it launched a fiery of fatwas against Muslim women who played at the Olympics. The mufti called them "prostitutes". That's when I know this was a screwed up website (fatwa is the last link).
These people are extreme. They use the "shaytaan", "biddah", "kuffar", and "mushrikeen" card consistently. The admin of the website clearly has mental issues. Have a look at these fatwas, it might make Islam QA look liberal to you!

Why you should avoid online Islamic forums

I have mentioned this before. Online forums/boards are cesspools for nutjobs. I have never questioned my faith more than when I visited these websites. I have seen idiotic and sick comments about women, non-Muslims, other sects of Islam, those who have different interpretations of Islam, and those who are non-salafi. One example is a woman who wrote on their that she worked for a human rights group in Afghanistan. She was immediately chastised for 1) Working 2) Working for groups that promote "biddah" or "kuffar" ideologies 3) Working with men. That woman, last time I checked, deleted her account because she couldn't take the amount of freaks harassing her.

I myself posted before how I was a member of Ummah forums. When I posted about me going to watch my sister play basketball, I was also getting numerous messages about what I was doing was "haraam". I was so sick of the freaks on there, I just left and wondered if Islam was the right religion.

And then there's always morons who support terrorist groups or post fatwas from extremist preachers. I posted before how salafis respond to terrorist attacks in Europe, and I spoke about how they use online forums to express their idiotic views.

You see, on line Islam forums (especially ummah forums, islam awakening, and salafitalk) are usually dominated by right wing Muslims (whom are usually Salafis/Wahhabis/Deobandis). Right wing Muslims are those whom are very strict, ultra conservative, have very narrow minded and rigid and strict interpretations of Islam. They take dawah very seriously, and what better way to do that than to go on Islamic forums?

As I have said before many times, for example, the subject of women is often the favorite topic of these right wingers. Right wing Muslims heavily sexualize every inch of a woman's body, every action she takes, every movement she makes, every dress she wears, and even what she says. They also follow every single hadith (doesn't matter if it's weak or fabricated or not in its context) and strictly follow Salafi or Wahhabi Sheiks.

So, unless you are a terrorist supporter, or a backwards person who thinks women should be burka covered housewives segregated from the public because Allah created women as "fitnah", or you hate other sects of Islam or want to wage war on different interpretations of Islam, if you go on to these forums, you will lose your faith. Sane and civilized Muslims will have their faith shaken when they visit such forums. So AVOID such gatherings.

A reminder about "authentic" hadiths

I have noticed a pattern in certain hadiths declared "authentic". For example the hadiths about gheerah and dayouth were declared authentic by the salafi/wahhabi Muhammed Nassiruddin Al Albani. Also, the hadith about women wearing perfume not entering paradise, women needing to prostrate in front of their husbands, these hadiths are ALSO verified as "authentic" by al albani and two other salafi/wahhabi sheikhs.

When you see hadiths verified as valid or sound, see WHO is doing so. If its verification is done by salafis/wahhabis. you can IGNORE such hadiths because most likely they are NOT true. Remember, hadiths came well after the Prophet pbuh died. They were compiled by ordinary people like you and me. Hadith scholars themselves aren't always on the same page. I mentioned previously how the salafi/wahhabi hadith scholar Al Albani verified a hadith about only an arab being allowed to rule an Islamic state, which has caused controversy among his own community. He also rejected certain hadiths in Sahihh Bukhari. Yes, Al Albani, a very orthodox salafi scholar, rejected some hadiths in Sahih Bukhari.

Something else that I want to stress is the fact that hadiths are CONTEXT SPECIFIC. For example, when the Prophet pbuh said female rulers of a country won't be successful, he was specifically referring to the Persians at the time who chose an unfit daughter of the deceased ruler. Another example is when the Prophet pbuh said that those who can't swim or those who don't do archery are not among us. How many Muslims take part in archery? How many Muslims are there that don't swim?

Here are some videos by Dr Shabbir Ally who says not all hadiths can be accepted because its like a game of Chinese whisper:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MN10qU4dP2A
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdFyd0HHkAE

Here is an article about hadiths:
http://www.irfi.org/general/history_of_hadiths.htm

So in conclusion:
Salafi/wahhabi verified hadiths are NOT reliable
Hadiths are context specific; referring to specific people, times, and places.
Hadiths are subject to scrutiny and rejection because 1) They were compiled hundreds of years after the Prophet pbuh died 2) Even among hadith scholars there are disagreements about the validity od certain hadiths.

Dear Muslim women, you are NOT sinning if men get aroused by you

This is a follow up to my articles on women not being sex objects.

Muslim women are constantly told by sheikhs and the common person that they are sinful if they go out and men get turned on. There is a hadith on this, and you know what? Don't believe in it. Its a false and weak hadith. Its stupid to assume that Allah created women as sex objects who need to cover up and be hidden away because men can't control their lusts. Its stupid to assume that Allah only created women to wear burkas and be housewives because again, men can't control themselves.

Its because of this idiotic and sick thinking that muslim women are denied full public participation in everyday life. I see here in the west how women are living their lives just like how men are, and it annoys and saddens me that muslim countries restrict women's activities because men will get turned on.

The rule that Muslim women shouldn't wear provocative, sleazy, and racy clothing is just so that they should be professional in appearance. This doesn't mean you are to be covered head to toe in a burka, niqab, or hijab, rather it means you wear regular modest clothes that even your non-muslim neighbors wear. This is not hard to understand. If men find you beautiful (not the same thing as aroused by the way), then its NOT your fault in any way and don't think it is. Ignore the salafi and wahabi shitheads who will come at you. Many Muslim women mind their own business without having the intention to cause lustful thoughts and feelings from men, so how on EARTH does it make ANY sense that these women are sinning?? What about for Muslim men? What if they go out and women find them attractive? Are men sinning to? Is shaytaan with men too when they go out??
