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?

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.
