I left Christian faith because it simply doesnt make sense and that Islam makes more sense. DONT WATCH THESE VIDEOS! THESE PEOPLE ARE FAKE CONVERTS THAT WANT TO BRAINWASH PEOPLE INTO THINKING ISLAM IS WRONG!! The Mighty One sharing Divinity with a Man? If Jesus had any share of Divinity then he would be so powerful. Jesus ate, he slept, he did everything that a human needs to do to survive.

Listen I may be young but I aint stupid. I have debunked these videos before. They all say the same stupid propaganda about Islam that its so violent and then they saw Jesus and he told them to become Christian. I have seen dozens of these videos. Dozens and they are all the same.

A lot of these high-profile Muslim converts to Christianity are fake, and cannot even re-enact the Muslim prayer.  The most famous fake is probably Ergun Caner, but there are others who either were never Muslim or were nominally Muslim. Either way, if other people leave the truth, it does not mean the truth is not the truth.

@sidnaq

I left Christianity because it is a irresponsible belief and defies logic and common sense. Why would one claim to believe in one God and say that He is three separate but equal personalities  in one deity and then tell you that God (The Father) is not Jesus or the Spirit , Jesus (The Son) is neither the Spirit or God and the Spirit is not God or Jesus. 

And when you ask them for more details or how it to be, they say "It's a divine mystery"

Can you trust such an answer? I couldn't growing up.

Some convert from Islam to Christianity. Others from Christianity to Islam. Some just convert to another group within the same religion. All for a  variety of reasons. Most of us stay with the religion of our parents and are not affected by "hostile" propaganda.

Sister, no matter what, I ask you, NEVER watch those videos! These people make these type of videos for one of these reasons, fame, attention, or the fact that they are embarrassed to be Muslim, so make up a video so that they can leave looking " cool ", that they survived the terror.

I ask you to not worry, and to not have doubts. They are of the biggest liars. Muhammad SAW and Imam Ali (a.s) warned us about these people.

Let us take a look at the Quran.

وَاِنۡ تُطِعۡ اَكۡثَرَ مَنۡ فِى الۡاَرۡضِ يُضِلُّوۡكَ عَنۡ سَبِيۡلِ اللّٰهِؕ اِنۡ يَّتَّبِعُوۡنَ اِلَّا الظَّنَّ وَاِنۡ هُمۡ اِلَّا يَخۡرُصُوۡنَ‏
(6:116)  If you obey the majority of those who live on earth, they will lead you away from Allah's path. They only follow idle fancies, indulging in conjecture.
 
Quran here is telling us that the majority is not always right. Just because there is a bigger group, does not at all mean that they are with the truth. Imam Hussein (a.s) proved this to us on the Day of Karbala. Let us never forget.

@sidnaq The people who say 'it is fake' are telling the truth.

I have a personal story:

When I came to Australia(I was 9 years of age), and our family hardly knew anyone. My dad randomly met these missionaries who then became very good friends with him. My dad found them very friendly and they started inviting our whole family to their gatherings. Every month, they have these big family gatherings where they invite various families(even on Christmas etc). They were very friendly to us at start and then they started slowly bringing religious discussions up. They then started sending these CD's which have these 'ex-Muslims' stories like every month or so. Even when we went to their house, they played these videos in front of us. That is when my dad felt uncomfortable and found out that these people are only our friends in hope that we convert to Christianity one day. The videos were terrible with 'weird music' and propoganda stuff like 'I dreamt of Jesus' or 'I was about to go to hell, but Jesus saved me' etc

My dad then made it clear that we are never becoming Christians by having 'arguments with them'. Soon after, they never contacted us ever again despite us calling them. I will never forget these lame propoganda fake videos.

The producers of these videos target Muslims with weak faith and have made fake stories. Never fall for these, or waste your time watching these.

@sidnaq . Imma be straight foward with you. Right now it is a very very bad time to lose your faith. Im talking about the prophecies. They're getting worse. Stay strong Sister. Allah is right there. Watching you. He understands you. Dont give up now. If you give up, then a piece of my heart will be gone. It hurts me to witness Shia leaving the faith. It hurts.

can you share with me your own personal story :D?

It's not that exciting.  Basically I was raised Catholic, but found things wrong with Catholic beliefs at a young age.  I continued to attend mass and go through the rituals as long as I lived with my parents, but as soon as I was out on my own I claimed no religion.  I always believed in God, I just didn't agree with the organized religions I knew about.  At a later time in my life I decided that I couldn't possibly be wiser and more knowledgeable than millions of people living and past, so I returned to Christianity in spite of its logical and theological flaws.  One day while in a Protestant church service, the pastor asserted that "All Muslims are Satan worshipers." I knew this to be incorrect, and I also knew that this claim was in violation of Christian teaching, but I didn't really know what Muslims do believe and do worship so I resolved to research before discussing the pastor's error with him.  In the course of my research I found answers to the theological and logical problems I'd had with Christianity, and became unable to not convert.  

The pastor never did agree to talk with me.  I guess he'll learn about his error on the Day of Judgement if he doesn't figure it out before then.

As for as I'm concerned, there is no such thing as an "ex-Muslim". You're either a Muslim or a kafir - you've either chosen Islam or you have rejected it - your parents have their own destiny. You shouldn't get any recognition or legitimacy for having Muslim parentage. It's a religion not a culture.

We may not have time or interest to read every post, but there is no reason to be afraid to read propaganda as long as we dont loose our common sense.

Very uninforming comments in this thread,

@sidnaq  it is your choice whether or not you would like to study any case or matter that pertains to things you find personal. I don't find it right for anyone to ask her not to watch these videos. What I will say however is that there are many videos just like this that are created by movie editors and producers (they do this because it is their job; most have an education background in it) who will use your emotions against you through tropes like experiencing a revelation through dreams, experiencing a physical visit by their Lord, and other means which can emotionally impact how you feel and what you may believe, even if it may not necessarily be true at all.

There are very healthy options to go through this like comparing and contrasting scriptural verses and their context; understanding theological similarities and differences, understanding why they are different and so on. You have the freedom of mind to make the choice in your own matter but I implore you that you must spend a large amount of time in studying and pondering. You cannot enter a belief system you have no knowledge of; likewise in order to subscribe to a certain dogma you must know, for the most part, the extremely essential parts of a belief system. 

Also, it is more then normal to have doubts and I find that healthy personally; it means you are thinking. Let these doubts be extinguished through your personal studying and inshallah through keeping true to yourself you will arrive to nothing but truth. Salaam

(Also, If you would like information, i've spent a majority of the past year and a half studying interfaith theology between Christians and Muslims. I could help you understand where to start if you'd like to message me). We also have a small amount of Christian members on this site you could ask for information as well. Good luck

Sure umm, can you explain to me why islam is the correct religion?

The religious person's answer is always like this:

You can't disprove God therefore my God is true. 
My God says that he is the only real God.
Therefore all other gods are disproved. 

Anyone who thinks otherwise is deceived by Satan.

    • Iran condemns Egypt terrorist attack Tehran (ISNA) - Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi has strongly denounced a deadly terrorist attack in the Egyptian city of Arish, which killed and wounded hundreds of people on Friday morning.   In a statement, Qassemi blasted the brutal attack and expressed sympathy with the Egyptian nation and the bereaved families of the victims. "Undoubtedly, the Takfiri terrorism that is suffering the heaviest defeats these days in the region does not refrain from making any desperate effort and ruthless move to assert its existence once again," he noted. "This sharply increases the responsibility of regional governments to gain a real and accurate understanding of terrorism and to seriously and collectively counter it," Qassemi went on to say. He also called on all nations and governments to be as vigilant as possible at this particular juncture in the face of new plots by the bloodthirsty losers.

    • They have mutual responsibilities. Quran orders women to have hijab and men to lower their gaze. Men dont have to cover their hair because a man whose hair is uncovered doesnt seem attractive to women. Women are much different from men. Due to their different creation, men and women have different responsibilities. For example, men have to work to support their families but women dont have to do it. Or another example is jihad (to fight in the fields) which is not wajib for women. If you dont like the way you look when you cover your hair then just change your scarf. There are many different styles; you may like some of them.  
    • hi the allowing for human cloning is permitted for curing & wellness not for beauty Site code fa599 Archive code 549 Genetic modification profile and Soul problem Thematic classification of rights and judgments Genetic modification Genetic modification share                   Summarize the question What is the genetic and neonatal birth order of this method? question What is the genetic modification of Islam? How does a person come up with this method and how do you solve the problem of the soul? Concise answer The genetic modification in NIC has a type that is normal in nature, which is different from the rule, but in general, if the correction is based on the embryo or sperm and oocyte of the couple, to prevent the occurrence of hereditary and genetic diseases And the birth of the baby is paralyzed and ill and also causes the physical or mental perfection of the infant and does not require any other haram action, according to the Shari'a do not have such an obstacle. And the child born in this way, because of the husband's sperm and ovum, has no problem.   But in relation to the problem of the soul, it should be said that if this correction is before the breath of the soul, there is no problem, and if, after blowing the soul into the body (four months), it is still not difficult, because the soul and soul that after During the stages of growth, the body is given to the body, it is related to that body, and with it's life, and the person's identity depends on the personality of the same soul, and the Takvina spirit and the body of that body and body are intrinsic to that soul.   Detailed Answer The advancement of science and technology in recent decades has provided significant services to human health, health and improvement of human life. Among these advances in the field of medicine, scientists have been able to invent some methods to prevent inherited and genetic diseases so that they can modify the embryo or sperm and ovum in the early stages of growth. And prevent the birth of sick and paralyzed and defective babies.   Obviously, as the wisdom and consequently sharia judge, the patient should go to the doctor for treatment, and if he is diagnosed by a doctor, he should do this. By saying this, if there is such a possibility that in the early stages of the dismemberment of the sprout and before the birth of the infant or the patient can be prevented, there should be no problem.   Genetic modification in the medical sciences has different types, which is natural in terms of its kind, which is different from the jurisprudential point of view. But what is said in answer to the question is that in general, if the modification is carried out on the fetus or sperm and the egg of the husband and wife, and without combining it with sperm of a man or an ovum of another woman, and that leads to health and physical perfection Or spiritual, and does not require another forbidden act, this correction is permissible. But if it is possible that the corrective action would not be useful and that the defect may be caused by the fetus, the permit is the place of the problem.   Since the birth of a newborn born in this way has not been violated, this infant belongs to the husband and wife of the Shari'a.   But if genetic modification is carried out by combining sperm with a man or an ovum of another woman, who is joining the believer of this work and the child who is born of this process? There are different views among the jurists.   Below, we will draw your attention to the following issues:   1. What is the pregnancy sentence for a woman with a sperm of her husband? Is the child born in this way the decree of a true child?   All the great authorities: The principle of this task is unimportant; provided that it is avoided of the forbidden pretext (such as the look and the touch of a non-lawyer) and the child is born, all the rules of the child of that husband and wife are. [1]   2-   What is the decree of introducing sperm to a woman's womb if her husband is not supportive?Who is the child who is born?   All the great authorities (except the Grand Ayatullah Khamenei): This is forbidden, and if a son is born, it belongs to the owner of the spit and to the woman who owns the womb. [2]   Grand Ayatollah Khamenei: The principle of this task is unimportant; provided that it is avoided of the forbidden pretext (such as the look and the touch of the nonhuman), and if a son is born, it belongs to the owner of the spit and to the woman who owns the womb. ]   Concerning the soul issue, here it should be said that if this action was carried out in the very early days, it does not have an embryo at all. And if it is after that, the spirit that is not removed from the body and no other spirit has come to its place. In any case, the soul and soul, which is given after a process of growth to the body, is related to that body and with its lifetime, and the diagnosis of that body depends on the personality of the same soul, also It is the spirit of Tekvivna and the temporarily possessed by that body, and that body is the mumble of that spirit.   The result is that if it is a genetic modification without committing unlawful acts and thus preventing the birth of defective babies, it is not only permissible, but also desirable, because of the birth of sick and sick babies who are nursing and nursing and raising children It has many problems for parents and family, prevention and safe delivery of children to the community.   The response of the Office of the Grand Ayatullah, Fazel Lankarani (Al-Ajali), to the question:   Genetic modification, if it is limited to treating drugs and the like, does not involve the inoculation of the male vagina, and there are no conflicts with the spirit issue.   The Office of the Grand Ayatullah Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi (Azhali):   Correction is by no means a problem, but simulation is not allowed. And there is no problem in the spirit of genetic modification.     [1] Khamenei, Ayubawat al-Sathatat, S 1271 and 1277; Imam, Tahrir al-Waslah, C 2, Allaqih, M 1; Tabrizi; Sūrat al-Najajah, vol. 5, p. 1013; Fazil, Jameem al-Masaleh, vol. 1, 2103, 2104; Vahid, The explanation of al-Masaleel, 2900; Sistani, the explanation of Al-Masaleh, the artificial insemination, M 69; Safi, Jamea Alahakam, J 2, S 1392; Opri, J 2, S 1392; Optical, Esfahat, C 2, S 903 and C 1, 985 ; PICKTHAL: Sufatiat, 2nd Dec., 1757, and Office: Behjat.

    • To prove Ayatollah Khamenei's vision is wrong we should know how Natives treated settlers upon their arrival.  Is it not documented that there were fair exchanges in the beginning? Then how did that turn into human hunt afterwards ? And even if reciprocal animosity did take place, how do you ignore the feeling of the person holding a gun against one who does not. It is almost impossible that mass killing took place without some form of self contentment. And I am not just trying to justify Sayid's word. Go see any civil war when two former neighbors fight, it is often with this feeling of destructive pleasure.
