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?

How do we as Muslims explain sexual abuse of boys?

I have mentioned this many times before how Muslim women are always blamed for inviting rape and harassment because they don't wear a burka or hijab. I have mentioned before how Muslim women even in burkas and hijabs are not spared from harassment. I have shown in my other blog (pakmentality.blogspot.com) the countless comments by men (and self hating women) who do their best to make sure women are blamed for being harassed. I have mentioned before how I have been harassed by an old creepy woman. I have mentioned how some of my male friends have had sexual advances towards them by other men. I have mentioned about boys in madrassas in Pakistan and Afghanistan being subject to rape and sexual abuse.

Have a look at the following statistics about the abuse, harassment, and rape boys and men face by (mostly) other men (and some women). These links also show much of the sexual abuse and harassment is committed by mehram family members (so much for the common argument that one can relax in clothing around mehrams).


This one here is an Islamic link that tackles sexual abuse and harassment very well. Have a look at the comments at the amount of girls who have been sexually abused by their own fathers, uncles, and brothers: https://www.soundvision.com/article/15-tips-for-victims-on-how-to-deal-with-sexual-assault-abuse-and-harassment-in-the-west

Now obviously women are subject to far more abuse and harassment. But as the links show, many boys and men will have their lives ruined as well. Should we tell men, like how we do to Muslim women, that they should wear hijab and burka? Honest question. And what about around mehrams, because as the links show they commit much of the sex crimes. Should we tell boys and girls to wear hijab and burka around their own fathers, uncles, and brothers?
