The Twitter page @exmuslimbecause began to revive the #exmuslimbecause. As expected, Muslims did not appreciate this hashtag very much because it offended their faith. So they began to tweet sarcastic remarks under the #. Others attempted to disagree with and challenge the #.

Below is video of my conversation with a friend of mine named “Reema” who is also an ex-Muslim. She is a native Arab speaker and devoted to learning. She discusses her journey of ascending from her faith using the Islamic scriptures. This was a great conversation! I learned a lot. Enjoy!
Coming from a Sunni-Sufi background, there was a great emphasis on dreams and visions in my religious upbringing. People would have conscious “visions” and dreams of Prophets, angels and jinns coming before them and sending them a message about the truth, dreams etc. This would have potentially dangerous effects because if a religious authority had a dream that someone he knew was fornicating, that person would get into unwarranted trouble. Even though it could easily have been just a dream.
We called these visions “Kashf” and they were believed to be messages from Allah and the Prophet.
