    Hi, I have for the past year been going through some hardship of trying to understand religion, I am called myself an Omnist which for those who may or I think nobody has come across is a someone who believes in all religions, I know you thinking how? but I have gone from that now to agnostic but like everyone else I want to be found not lost. I am also from Leeds so It would be nice to speak to others in the same circumstances, I am very open minded and can speak about anything.

    I have been an exmuslim for quite a while, 2013 was the year I found light. Hopefully CEMB platform will help me find like minded people. Great to see a thriving exmuslim community.

    I was raised in a strict Muslim household and started to question the religion once I started secondary school. By year 8 I knew that this wasn't for me and that I couldn't continue living by the rules set out for me. However I also knew that there was nothing I could do at that time. I had no money and no where else to live.

    8 years later and I'm still in the same position. Although I have a job, I don't have enough to move out. So I'm stuck living in this horrible house.

    I cam NEVER tell my parents about my situation, EVER. I know for a fact they will either kill me or send me to a city in Africa (even though I am British).

    I can't bear praying and fasting anymore, I don't know how others do it.

    I know that I will never live the life I want and that kills me. But I think what would get me through all this is to talk to others, who are in the same situation I am in.

    I am an X Muslim , I have come to this decision after a lot of research and after see people and myself go through a lot of bad things in the name religion. I have seen people suffer just because they want to protect the myths of a religion that is making their life worse , and my story with my family is similar. I am glad to have found this platform where one can talk openly and without any fears of what will happen in result of the free speech. I can surely prove and talk a lot about how today religion is making this world suffer with every possible hatred. .

    I live with a extremely strict and religious muslim family. Every since last year I've been losing more and more faith in Islam and find it to be one of the worst ideologies / religions I have ever had the misfortune to face the realities of. If i ever told my family how I feel I'm 100% sure I would be in danger. I am too young to leave or find somewhere to stay and still in school so I'm trapped here. I came here to find other people like me and find advice on how to cope. I'm so grateful that there are organisations like this.

    I stumbled across this website today and must say how moved I am to hear all the testimonies of people suffering at the hands of a religion which has left many feeling scarred, jaded and isolated from their nearest and dearest.

    I have never been a Muslim - I was bought up a devout Jehovahs Witness from birth. Bought up to believe that the worlds end was coming and that I had to conform or die..... I was bought up in a physical and sexually abusive household and had no outside help because we were strictly told that 'worldly association' was not allowed.

    I fortunately was able to leave in my mid teens but bared the scars of my indoctrination for many years - going off the rails and had to find my own path.

    Life following breaking free from such indoctrination is hard and the outside world once breaking free can make you go a little crazy especially when being given such a liberty that you once never had. My advice to everyone that is considering leaving is to do your research, build up a network of friends..... Save some money, and take the leap only when you are secure... There is always a high probability that your family may shun your existence therefore getting a plan together is always necessary.

    If anyone ever needs to talk I will respond to all x

    I left Islam when I was 12. I'm now 23 years old and agnostic. Most of my friends are Muslim and I want to meet people who I can relate to more.

    i was born in Pakistan with very strict Conservative Muslim family, i came here as asylum seeker at the age of 14, my step father use to beat me every time because of not praying, they always force me to do Muslim practice, and i had to do it because i was in fear that he might kill me. my mother bought me here because she no longer wanted to see me suffer science then i have been living alone in UK.

    I've been brought up as a Muslim and all my life till 15 I followed my parents words and what they told me to. I also followed my cousins too and they are very religious. When I was 15 I realised that's not what I want. Even after what I went through I still believed in allab and my religion. Now I'm 18 and I've gone through so much. I don't think his helped or even been there for me at all. I don't have faith anymore. I have had enough of believing something that's not there. I want to move on and move forward with my life instead of being held down by whoever this Allah is. I think joining this society will help me realise more and help me clear my head. I am so strongly against this religion.

    I left Islam over a year ago and life has been a massive battle since. I would like to join the group as there is a need for this community.

    I have left Islam, this false religion. I appreciate some of the principles i.e. 2.5% charity, but on the grand scheme of things it's man made.
    I secretly hide this fact as it would no doubt leave me ostracised within my family circle as they are all completely delusional.
    I had my doubts many years ago and I'm glad there is an underground ex muslim (yes without uppercase M) movement. To death with religion!!
    I wish I could burn the quran and all other religious texts and have a barbecue with the fire.

    I'm glad that some of us have found a way out. Fu**ing cult that it is. I met so many delusional people over the years. However one fair point is that some people who are in extreme suffering i.e. third world countries, it does give hope to the many good people who don't wish to harm anyone. It's a shame that humanity in general is selfish but that is another issue.

    I am proud to be an atheist. I have lived in several muslim and christian countries and never really cared about religion. Recently I have started to become more aware of the harm that it does, especially with the savage terrorist attacks, rapes and violence of ISIS and therefore I have taken more of an interest in speaking out against it (all religion, not just islam). I am glad to see that many muslims in the UK are leaving the religion because this will enable them and their descendants to live peacefully with the rest of us. I want them to know that they are truly welcome and they are not alone.

    Hi, i am a Pakistani five years before i moved here in UK. I born and raised in a Muslim family in Pakistan, where everybody had strictly instructions to pray 5 times, about fasting in ramazan and other religious activities. When i was nearly 16 i have so many questions in my mind related to Islam, but when ever i tried to ask those questions everybody get angry on me and stopped me.Than i start running from Islam and religious activities because i felt that this is against humanity and feminism and so many other things.Day by day questions against Islam were increasing in my mind but there i cant express my views openly against Islam because of the fear of blasphemy law in Pakistan.I am happy here in UK here everyone have freely right to talk and to express their views without any fear. Now i am glad that recently i found this platform where i can find more other atheist who have same thinking like me and where i can openly share my feelings with them. I want to be a part of this.

  17. Mark Neil Fletcher

    , Basford, Stoke-on-Trent

    I converted to Islam at the end of last year with the best of intentions. As a homosexual with serious mental health problems, I knew it would be a big struggle for me to become a Muslim, but was up for the challenge and positive about it. I renounced Islam a couple of days ago. The experience of trying to repress my sexual thoughts and identity left me with sex on the brain all the time, wet dreams, self-hatred and suicidal ideation. Doing my best to be a good Muslim meant totally rejecting the gay friend I was living with and moving nearer to a mosque. Yesterday I moved back in with him and have ceased all contact with local Muslims. I found the experience of doing my best to learn how to pray "properly" and everything that goes with it a thoroughly joyless and irrational one. My contact at the mosque was trying to take over every aspect of my life. I attended the five daily prayers there for several weeks, a weekly ijtima and many other events. My conclusion is that practising Muslims are seriously deluded if not thoroughly bonkers. The CEMB is essential to look out for the interests and concerns of ex-Muslims and oppose a nutty and authoritarian belief system. Thanks for being there and providing a forum for apostates.

    i've been out of the folds of islam for a while. recently i let a few people know about this and i've been involved in heavy theological debates with them. so far i've won all arguements with logic and philosophy. these people are accepting in front of my face but the minute i turn my back they are calling me a kaffir. i can help others who want to engage in academic debates with muslims. i've extensive reaearch into hadith especially the 9 volumes of bukhari; i find many of them rathar farcical and almost child like. i've defeated imams too.throgh my logical distruction of this faith three people are now ex and one thiniking. i do fear for my life as i live in a somali majority area but i'm not of them. lately i have become more vocal and confident and am engaging in debates all the time. i may have to leave this area soon or even the country altogether. i've told that i could be the next salman rushdie if i put everything i know on pen and paper. my written engllish could do with some help as i'm more words than paper. my family are aware of me as a very liberal person when it comes to religion and politically i'm on the left of the left (it it exists any more)
