Left Islam the Day My Daughter Was Born
20 Dec. 2004
Dear Ali Sina,
I'm from the Netherlands. I left Islam and wanted to share my story with you and other apostates. I’m from Morocco and like many Moroccans I immigrated to Holland. I used to be a very passionate Muslim but a few years ago I began to question Islam.
Before it I had found many contradictions in the Quran, but I was blind and decided not to think about it.
Then I met a Dutch woman and it was love at first sight. She was a feminist and strangely enough I agreed to tolerate it. But I loved her intelligence and her self-esteem. I didn’t want to have four wives because I love only one woman. Soon I became a feminist myself! But I didn’t leave Islam because my parents told that Islam was a pro-feminist religion (rubbish). Then my wife got pregnant. My father told me that I had to forbid her from working. But how could I? She’s an independent human being. She didn’t want to stop her career. Father said I was the head of the family and I could demand whatever I wanted from her. I said we were equal. He named me a fool. But I didn’t leave Islam.
Then my baby girl was born. My father said I didn’t have to speak to my wife for some weeks. I was astonished. I looked at my baby girl and promised she would never suffer like other Muslimahs. She will be independent and self-sufficient like her mother. I left Islam the day my daughter was born.
Soon afterwards Holland was astounded to hear the latest news… The murder of Theo Van Gogh was the last straw. I knew, something like that was going to happen. If you knew what Imams are preaching in mosques across Holland, you would understand that there is nothing strange with killing of this poor director.
I ran away with my wife and daughter and now we are hiding in The Hague .
My wife earns more money than me, but I’m not belittled by it. She wants to have a career and I support her. We won’t have more children because she’s a busy woman and I don’t want to make her a breeding machine. We have a nanny. I love my daughter and I am not disappointed by not having a son.
I thought of becoming a Christian but then I decided to follow your motto. Now I’m a prophet myself I’m probably even better than Mohammed. :)))))))
P.S. I wanted to write some verses from Quran that made me question Islam but I have no time. You know… a small daughter, wife and work :)
If you, dear Mr. Sina, are a father or even have a daughter, you will understand why I decided to join your united forces against Muslims.
I’m a bit nervous about writing this testimony because my own father wants to see me dead. But it’s very important. The whole world needs to learn the truth about Islam.
