The Imaginary Friend of Faithful Muslims (Or Captor?)

Child with Imaginary Friend, From Psych2Go

As the oldest sibling there were a few years in my early childhood that I had nobody to play with. So I would run from one end of my parents’ apartment to the next fighting with my imaginary friends.  Boy was I good at martial arts… in my own imagination of course.

We would play power Rangers. I would even lose the battle sometimes and “die.” This is all on home video footage and it’s a very cute memory. It certainly influences my imagination for the rest of my life and even today.

I was 2-5 years old. Click to continue reading!

My Chat With Mufti News About Amos Yee Converting To Islam

Disclaimer: Mufti News is a satirical website.

Mufti Amos

 

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.

Muslim Youtubers Adam Saleh and Karim from AreweKukunow saw this video, and have rallied Muslims to report Amos Yee to Youtube for “racism.”

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.

Is Shaytan Truly Chained In Ramadan?

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.

Muslim Woman Played The “Misinterpretation Card”

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!
