Why do Muslims become Athiests?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Someone I used to go to school with has become an atheist, and it broke my heart. It breaks my heart every time I hear something like this. 

Why does this happen? Why is it that people break under tests like this? Any explanations, if there is one?

It seems like more Shias around me are leaving their faith, and quite frankly I'm upset and scared for them.

Breaks my heart too. Based on the Quran and history, most people will choose not to believe. They simply prefer this life, or they are lazy and don't want to practice. Or in some cases they perhaps they never understood Islam. I try to understand it myself. InshaAllah I hope the person you knew comes back to Islam!

Salam. It is heartbreaking. I was discussing this subject about an hour ago with a friend. I know it doesn't make sense for someone to leave Islam, but I tend to think that hardships in life can make some people temporarily insane. When they come back to their senses, inShaAllah they realize their mistake, repent, and embrace Islam again.

It is simple logic. Whenever someone wants to leave islam, they want some justifications for their sinful way of living.

I feel sorry for people who choose to become athiests. Becoming athiest is scary because I find that the most insulting thing someone can do to Allah. 

Someone who disbeliefs after he was a muslim, is much worse than someone who has never embraced islam.

I guess there are more than a single or couple of factors involved. Even here in Pakistan I have noticed few guys Sunni though, going either agnostic or full blown up atheist. 

1. Personal Hardships either emotional or financial 

2. ISIS and ilk 

3. Western cultural Influence 

4. In Sunni cases, where their clerics tried hard to justify or make cases that otherwise can't be.   Or tried to convey more radical views about religion and they became fed up. 

5. They seek miracles in life, when life is actually but a mess. 

6. Western educational influence that's hellbent not to prove God than to prove God  

7. Incest or rape

8.  a blonde trashy girl friend that was the member of scientology church.

They think that if they leave Islam and become Atheist, God ceases to exist (naoozbillah). They think they are now free from responsibilities and have taken the first step to the stress-free life they crave. Little do they know, they will have a stress-filled afterlife because of their hasty decisions.

1. Haven't studied the religion properly.

2. They're living a sinful life.

3. They desire this world

 know it feels like a slap to the face losing a brother or a sister. I have a friend who is in a confusing state (I think I'm not sure) sometimes it feels he's a good muslims sometimes it feels like he has left but I hope Allah will not let him go Insha'Allah. But please remember do not treat your friend different, consider him equal because he's still your brother/sister in humanity.

I have relative who is against a concept of "Just God". He says god could have made everything easy. Why there is a lot of suffering and evil in this world. He says Quran and all other religious books sounds like a fairy tales to him. He used to be a very good muslim kid but now he is agnostic. I think people should stop comparing religion with science. Science changes everyday. He says i could only believe on things i could see and since i can't see god i am not gonna believe. There any many things which we haven't seen but we know they exist.

This is utterly due to lack of understanding of this life., which is fake/unreal.. it's even more fake or unreal than a fairy tale itself, as well as the basic concept what religion is, God didn't create this unreal/virtual world for us to 'live' here.... people easily assume, as it's truly a 'life' and the one 'worth living' ... on the contrary., it's a fake world, fake life, merely created to put us to trial, and evaluate each of us of their 'right rank or place' in the eternal life .. or real life.....

This might sound bit philosophical, but if you look around and sit back, you would be shocked., you are actually living a delusion., and it feels so real, that we actually end up believing in it.

Most atheists that I know became atheist because they were angry at God about the injustice in the world. 

I don't understand how a person can be angry at God while asserting that God doesn't exist, but that's what I've observed. They lack understanding and do not want the responsibility of free will. For many people it's just a phase and they eventually grow out of it.

I understand and i told him look this is part of a life. God has made rules (Islamic rules) and if we all follow them i am sure nobody will die with hunger and there will be no poverty. Its us who don't follow the rules god told us. We made the borders not god. He has given us free will and we could do whatever we want.

They're enemies now.

Perhaps the evil is increasing, remember that the prophecies say that Islam will end up with few people as believers, and a wind will take the souls of the few believers, and after that there will be no Islam on the earth, that's close to the final judgement.

Plus all the good people that will die; every century that comes will have less good people, and the next one less and so on.
