Disclaimer: Mufti News is a satirical website.
Amos Yee is a Youtuber who uses satire and vulgarity to promote freedom of speech. He recently made a video where he points out the misogyny/violence in the Quran then desecrates it. By desecrate, I mean he rips out pages from the Quran and dry humps it.
This caused a wave of Muslims to take notice of atheist debunks of Islam on Youtube, and brand it as “hate speech.”
Recently there was an article by MuftiNews stating how Amos Yee has converted to Islam and became a Mufti. A Mufti is a Muslim legal expert who is empowered to give rulings on religious matters. The same website also stated how Mufti Amos had plans on creating an Islamic Theme Park. Click for more!
There is a famous hadith commonly quoted by Muslims on Ramadan. The hadith goes as follows:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “When the month of Ramadan starts, the gates of the heaven are opened and the gates of Hell are closed and the devils are chained.” (Sahih al-Bukhari 1899)
According to this Hadith, the devils are chained. The devils are what causes evil desires and actions. By this logic: [the Islamic version of] evil is chained.
But is it really?
- I lost faith in Islam during Ramadan of 2012 after a long period of doubt and critical examination.
- Indonesian Police forces warn their local communities on rising crime rates (such as theft, prostitution and mugging) in Ramadan compared to the rest of the year. (Also try this article.)
- Egypt has witnessed rising crime rates in Ramadan
- Child trafficking increases in Yemen during Ramadan.
- According to a study in Morocco, irritability increases in the month of Ramadan.
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 #.
One young woman and I had a brief exchange in the midst of this. I will paste the screen shots below. I kept her username and photo out to maintain her anonymity because I would much rather focus on discussing her thought than single her out and bully her. #realtalk Click for more!

She interviews Muslims who are challenging Islamic Extremism’s influence through maintaining their individuality and fighting for justice. I found one interesting incident, about a former radio talk show host in Algeria who directly defied Islamists. Look below: Click to keep on reading!

Hold up let me get this straight…
So Allah was lonely, created Jinn, Humans, Angels. Then Iblis stands up to his authority and was cast away. He challenged God in a battle of wits that will go until the end of existence, over who can get more followers. God then has Adam and Eve chilling in heaven and forbade them to eat a specific fruit… knowing that Iblis was lurking around there as a talking snake. Eve ate it out of temptation. God sent them to Earth where they and their offspring (the rest of humanity) will be tested by God and tempted by Iblis. Click to keep on reading!
