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?

Are there really 1.6 billion Muslims on this planet?

Many people say Islam will become the largest religion by 2050.

Here's the thing. The 1.6 billion Muslim figure is made up of Shias, Sunnis, Ismailis, Sufis, Salafis/Wahabis, Ahmadiyya's, and Quran alone. Sunnis and Shias don't see each other as Muslim, Shias and Sunnis don't see Ismailis and Sufis as Muslim, Shias and Sunnis don't see the Quran alone group as Muslims, Ahmadiiyas are not seen as Muslim by anybody, and the Salafis/Wahabis don't see anybody but themselves as Muslim. So how can there really be 1.6 billion Muslims?

I have mentioned the 25 types of people who really should not exist in the ummah (http://mymuslimthoughts.blogspot.ca/2015/02/the-idiots-who-should-not-exist-in-our.html) but they do. These people unfortunately exist in our religion, and they add to the 1.6 billion number.

Makes me think, would many Muslims (me included) accept a much smaller number of worldwide Muslims if we could kick out the idiots who shame us on a daily basis?
