THE PURPOSE OF THIS BOOK

This book is not meant to ridicule Muslims, but to provide evidence for those who embrace Islam. I challenge them to reconsider and re-evaluate their Islamic faith - without the mind control so often exercised by psychotic, confused, and emotionally repressed individuals. Have you been told the truth about the Islamic faith? Are you sure? Or have you been misled by a fabricated doctrine based on delusions and myths? Is Islam a religion of peace or is it the doctrine that has caused so much destruction and suffering over the last 14 centuries?
In this book I give you solid evidence of the truth that all religious people, especially Muslims, need to be made aware of. The truth contained in this book has the power to save future generations from the slavery and abuse of religious mind control. 

There are two kinds of people who seek the truth: those who want to know the truth and those who are looking for anything to justify their faith - that which has been thrust upon them as absolute truth.

The evidence we hear or read is debatable, but I believe it can be unequivocally confirmed as true or false when objectively challenged by a critical and free-thinking mind equipped with sound logic, reason, and proven scientific facts.

PREFACE

I had no idea I was infected with a virus that has the capacity to paralyse the human mind and prevent it from thinking freely and critically. It's a potent illness that's been quietly growing for thousands of years: the religious brainwashing virus. By preying on defenceless children and the illiterate masses fed by the media, it is now able to dominate and abuse its victims. At the age of seven, I was kidnapped by Islamic theology and held captive by their god for many years. I spent the most of my time in the mosque, where I learned about Islam, prayed, and memorised the Quran. I was completely devoted to Allah, the Islamic God, and his claimed prophet Mohamed. I had been brainwashed.

Despite my strong confidence in Allah, I was eager to learn more about Him. My curiosity motivated me to inquire of someone I knew who was well-versed in the Islamic faith. My first inquiry was, "Who created Allah, and from where did he come?" When I was taught that these questions were asked by Satan to divert our attention away from Allah, I was stunned! And it was suggested that I recite the Quran's chapter on constancy to maintain my faith: "Say, "Allah is One, Allah is the Everlasting Refuge." He neither begets nor is born, and there is no one who can compare to Him." This Quranic chapter contains all Muslims are permitted to know about Allah, and it is intended to protect Muslims from Satan. My urgent inquiries were thus quiet, yet they lingered in my mind. Why does Allah have an unlimited army of angels to do his job, worship, and glorify him if he is entirely self-sufficient?

I looked for answers in the Quran, Mohamad's teachings, and the writings of Muslim scholars, all of whom claimed to have been enlightened by Allah to lead us. All I discovered was a primitive faith based on irrational beliefs and fairy tales that had nothing to do with truth or logic.

The turning point

I travelled a lot and talked with individuals from many walks of life, all with different religious beliefs, levels of knowledge, and backgrounds. After graduating in England, I travelled to the United States and a number of European and Asian nations, working in Syria, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates for several years. It was distressing to see Muslim countries run by corrupt, wasteful tyrants who have no moral conscience or regard for human rights.

Many Muslim-majority countries, particularly Arab ones that have implemented Sharia, the so-called divine law, see a wide range of human misery, injustice, persecution, slavery, and, worst of all, the catastrophic damage brought on by religious conflict.

Allah could simply have revealed irrefutable evidence of His existence and of Islam as the only authentic religion. He is the God who does not require adoration but demands it, who does not require creation but does so anyhow, despite the fact that most of his wretched creatures will suffer as a result. 

He is the God who wants us to love and obey him freely, but who also threatens us if we don't. Allah opted to connect with his human beings through a succession of prophets chosen at random, but he decided to stop communicating with humans 1400 years ago. He is the All-Perfect, who sent three divine books but let the first two be ruined before deciding to protect the third, which He might have done from the start. 

He is the All-Knowing One, who has made his messages so unclear and easy to misunderstand that people would dispute and kill each other for the rest of their lives over them. He is the Merciful One who puts his poor animals to the test by murdering, starving, and afflicting them with diseases, calamities, and birth deformities, then punishing them when they lose faith in him.

If there is a God, I cannot think he is so cruel as to torture his flawed and limited beings indefinitely, as Islam's God declares in his Koran: "Their bellies and skins will be melted by boiling water poured on their heads. Iron rods will be fastened to them, and when they try to flee Hell in their terror, they will be dragged back..." (22:19-22 in the Qur'an).

I have no doubt that Islamic teaching eliminates free critical thinking in favour of irrational inconsistencies between Allah and Mohammed - the kind of superstition to which one must blindly succumb since one has been brainwashed into believing that Allah and Mohammed are true.

What is the subject of this book?

The purpose of this book is to demonstrate the empirical facts that has convinced me that Islam is not a divine revelation. This book also tries to reveal the hidden dangers of Islamic teachings, as well as the tragic consequences that Muslims have faced as a result of blindly following individuals who claim to be empowered by Allah to guide humanity on the right road. I'll focus on Islam because it's the faith I've practised and studied extensively for many years.

In Volume One: 

In the first chapter, Islam is debunked as a peaceful religion. The alleged authenticity of Allah and Muhammad is examined in Chapters 2 and 3. The Qur'an did not come from a divine source, according to Chapter Four. The concepts of Sharia and the negative implications of its application will be discussed in Chapter 5. In the last chapter, I will go over all of the evidence offered to support Allah's existence. I will also summarise my conclusion and explain why the Islamic god 'Allah' isn't a good contender for a divine being.

Chapter One of Volume Two will demonstrate that the Quran is not a book of scientific wonders. The Islamic propaganda and brainwashing apparatus that have been working for the past 1400 years are exposed in Chapter Two. The third chapter examines the history of the Islamic world, emphasising the turmoil that Islam has wreaked on its adherents for the past 14 centuries. The attacker presents whatever he imagines as incontrovertible truth, and the victim's mind can be fooled and influenced in Chapter 4.

The fifth chapter explores where we get our morality and if we need God to act appropriately. In the final chapter, I shall express my opinion on Islamic doctrines and explain why. I'll also discuss the following step: adopting a free mind and embracing reason and scientific evidence, which would make people better off without religion.

Religious fanatics and their supporters are likely to react angrily to my book, labelling me "Islamophobic" and "anti-Islamic." Religious extremists and others who share their beliefs have a basic, black-and-white worldview: either submit and accept our faith or you are wicked and should be battled and eliminated! People who have been misled actively oppose freedom of speech and human progress. Freedom of speech is essential to democracy, and everyone should be able to say what they believe as long as they do not threaten or use violence.

I hope that this book will assist millions of people in breaking free from the slavery of religious thought control that humanity has been subjected to for thousands of years. It will assist people in resisting the theological illness that has for centuries excused hideous cruelty and violence.

I appreciate people's decision to follow a certain faith. Similarly, I would expect others to accept my right to be a non-believer who recognises that the blood shed as a result of religious brainwashing far outweighs the moral ideals that religion so falsely claims to uphold.

Believe in whatever God you want, but don't threaten me with it or label me your worst enemy because I don't share your beliefs.
