Why We Left Islam: Former Muslims Speak Out (Hardcover)
By Susan Crimp and Joel RichardsonAlso available in digital format here.
The penalty for renouncing Islam is death ...
...Which makes the stories in "Why We Left Islam" – and the lives behind them – all the more remarkable.
Compiled by journalist Susan Crimp and theological expert Joel Richardson, these shocking and brutally honest stories reveal a truth that the mainstream media and cowed politicians refuse to admit – that far from being a "religion of peace," Islam is both barbaric and repressive, a nightmare for both those living under it and those confronting it ...
- "The Qur’an is full of verses that teach killing of unbelievers and how Allah would torture them after they die. There are no lessons on morality, justice, honesty or love. The only message of the Qur’an is to believe in Allah and his messenger." - Ali
- "I don’t exactly remember what wrote doubt in my mind. Maybe it is Lord Buddha and his teachings or a glance at Jesus and his sufferings…then quite shockingly I realized my beloved prophet is a misfit. He failed to show me anything other than the dark side of human nature." - Divyan
- "People who have not lived in Dar Al-Islam cannot and will not understand the level of indoctrination Muslims undergo for their entire lives…If you’ve never used your mind but rather simply lived under the culture of submission (“Islam” means “submission"), your ability to think withers." - Basharee
Written by those who have lived under the Islamic yoke their whole lives, "Why We Left Islam: Former Muslims Speak Out" is both a powerful communiqué and a warning to the West.
“Powerfully written and deeply compelling, these accounts of people of conscience who left Islam are rendered all the more poignant by the realization that each one of them, whatever their status or situation, lives under the death sentence mandated by the Muslim Prophet Muhammad for apostates from Islam. This book should be required reading for human rights activists and all those who value the dignity of the human person, so that they will see why this horrific denial of the freedom of conscience within Islam must be resisted by all people of good will.”
- Robert Spencer, director of Jihad Watch and author of the New York Times bestsellers "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)" and "The Truth about Muhammad."
