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 are people so misguided on polygamy? Because they ignore what the Quran ACTUALLY says!

Ummah forums (a usual culprit) had a thread about polygamy. Many users were telling the woman who started the thread that polygamy cannot be objected to because its in the Quran and Allah says men can have up to four wives. Then there were some sadistic women who said they would absolutely love to be in a polygamous relationship because then all of the wives could be friends. Another woman on there said she was looking for a second wife for her husband (lets pray to Allah that she's unsuccessful). One other woman said she wants to be in a polygamous relationship because "all of the great men in Islamic history had more than one wife". Furthermore many of them say a man who marries a second wife doesn't have to tell his first wife. Smh.

And then we've got the ever so famous fatwa site Islam QA which says polygamy is pretty much mandatory for males even if they live in a non-muslim country: http://islamqa.info/en/11744

The woman who asked the question pisses me off, and it makes me want to headshot the idiot husband who is proposing to the woman. And it makes me further angry that Islam QA is fine with all of this.

A lot of what Islam QA writes isn't reliable. They themselves stake things out context. If you look they quoted a hadeeth where the Prophet said those who have the most wives are the best of the ummah. I forwarded this to onislam and they put Islam QA in their place: http://www.onislam.net/english/ask-about-islam/society-and-family/social-life/457613-polygamy-not-a-sixth-pillar-of-islam.html

If you look at that link, the scholar didn't mention the reason for polygamy. Which is why its up to us to interpret and understand.

If you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans, marry women of your choice, two, or three, or four; but if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly with them), then (marry) only one….   (Qur’an 4:3)

Notice how this verse on polygamy speaks of doing justice TO THE ORPHANS. Women at the time were not educated or involved in every day life. They were heavily dependent on men. Many men died in wars. I did an article about interfaith marriage here: http://mymuslimthoughts.blogspot.ca/2015/02/why-muslims-should-only-marry-muslims.html
I've already explained interfaith marriages are no longer Islamic and Muslims should marry only Muslims. At the time, Muslims also fought Romans (Christians) and certain jewish tribes. When their men died, their women were in the same position. This is a reason why both polygamy and interfaith marriages were permitted AT THE TIME. But if we look today, many Muslim women are independent. They do not need a man's help or his support (except maybe in cases like pregnancy). SO this verse is NO LONGER VALID. It SPECIFICALLY spoke about doing justice to a CERTAIN GROUP at a CERTAIN TIME. In addition to, there were RESTRICTIONS. You had to deal with them justly. There's well known hadiths that say a man who favored one wife over another will have his body twisted on the day of judgment.

Its unfortunate, but today in Pakistan, India and Bangladesh, imaams unconditionally marry already married muslim men to other women WITHOUT the first wife knowing. And considering the very poor status of women in those countries, the first wives are often ditched and left alone with the kids. These women sometimes have to get involved into prostitution or selling drugs to support themselves and their kids. Who's fault is this? It's the man, its the imaam for not properly knowing the context of polygamy, and that asshole woman (ASSUMING she knows the man is married, and ASSUMING she chose to marry him).

Please read my intro at the top of the blog again, and see how corrupt this ummah is becoming, and how all of this is causing many Muslims to question Islam, or flat out leave it. Islam QA, ummah forums, and the situation caused by scholars in the countries I mentioned only continue to prove my point.
