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?

Hijab is not in the Quran whether you like it or not

This is my 6th of 7th post on this and I feel like I need to keep telling people this (especially from people where hijab is always associated with virginity and piety (so Pakistan, Afghanistan, Saudi, and Yemen)).

Conservative Muslims usually argue the evidence for hijab from the Quran, because there isn't any reliable hadith material that advocates for hijab. They try and break down the Arabic words to prove head covering is there. However, there are a significant amount of websites and videos that show there is nothing about head covering in the Quran, and they also break down the root words in Arabic.

The following are Quran-alone websites. I have not linked to them before, as the ten or twelve sources on my other posts about hijab not being mandatory are all from non-hadith rejecting websites. I feel like a change is needed for people to realize hijab is just not in the Quran, and I will use Quranist websites for this post. To some it might seem more clear. Even if you do not reject hadiths, still see the arguments in the websites and see the evidence against covering the head. If you wear a hijab, or support the view it is mandatory, you need to accept the fact that you know what? The argument of it being not mandatory is pretty solid and holds weight, whether you like it or not.

So anyways here they are:

http://www.quransmessage.com/articles/hijaab%20FM3.htm (surprisingly, this one is a little conservative. It still says head covering is not required, but it might be if women beautify themselves a way which causes attraction. I have to disagree with this because as I have mentioned before, hair cannot cause sexual arousal in men. The site also goes on to say arms and shoulders need to be covered. However, I disagree with this part also. Shoulders and arms do not cause sexual arousal either).

http://www.quranicpath.com/misconceptions/hijab_niqab.html (interesting as it uses science to prove its point).

A few points I want to make: Hair is not a sexual organ. It is not a vagina or breasts. So we need to stop treating it like a sexual part. As for arms, it makes no sense how that is sexualized. If a woman rolls up her sleeves to do a task, is she now sinning? It makes no sense.

Conservative Muslims say hijab is necessary because a woman's beauty needs to be covered. If a Muslim woman is beautiful, so be it. Get over it and move on. It is stupid to tell women to dress up because others might find her attractive. It is stupid to make women self concious that she is attracting attention of males.
