Welcome to the group, Part of whole.

100 is indeed a cool milestone, although this group is very quiet.

Tbh, these days I mostly hang out at the forum at http://www.councilofexmuslims.com although this nontheist-only social networking site is awesome too.  :)

I got the message about "is this group active?" Well some groups go through a slow period but I think they are still worthwhile.

Idcollapse, I'm glad you came here to this group, we might actually be making a difference! My advice to you is just to give it some time and don't harry to announce anything, with time you will become much more confident and comfortable with it in public. And I'm sure there must be groups of at least liberal or open minded people in Morocco, you have to find them and hang out with them, stop spending time with people that don't understand you, it gets silly and hard...

hi everyone.... 

i am an ex muslim too and i would like to share my experience  with you folks. i welcome all your comments because i really need  them. i need some guidance and advice.

 ok;  i am  a young man from Morocco 28 years old exactly.i have got to say that during all those years i abode by the teachings of Islam. i considered it as the only right religion  and that any religion apart from it a mere delusion. i can dare and say that at some point of my life i was very religious too ; especially during time of crisis etc. ....

anyway all those years as a muslim weren't happy for me. i was all the time anxious .... it was a strange anxiety that came and went all time.  sometimes i would keep on praying and reading the koran just to feel better. that would work sometimes but wouldn't most of the time. i was kinda afraid of something....maybe i was afraid of something my god wouldn't like....    

 sometimes when i  committed sins  i would directly repent and  start feeling sad and regretful because i wasn't strong enough to fight the impulse or desire. To sum up  i didn't have control over my life ; islam or religion in general  was limiting my actionst thoughts and even my feelings ... it simply ruined my life ; and my professional life exactly because i didn't give 100 percent and i i always thought that god would be there to finish the 'thing' for me.

religion didn't  answer my inner questions. by the way ; in almost any religion you aren't supposed to ask questions about god... we are told that those kind of questions are sins. well they aren't.

religion is full of contradictions ...  and it makes your life miserable because you have always to relate all of your achievments and failures to the will of god. another thing  ; no god ever answers our prayers  even if you spend long hours praying " my case".

in islam nobody goes to heaven  excepr for good muslims. the rest suffers in life by their disturbed soul and hard obstacles in life. they suffer also after death in hell for not being good muslims. those like me always according to islam  who were once muslims and decided no to be anymore will have a more sever punishment because they know what islam is all about tatatata .

to get all this out of my mind required from me so much time ;courage and free thinking.

now i really feel better ... i control my life. no more  anxiety and this is the most important thing for me. only peace real and good peace.

 

 my problem right now  is that nobody knows about this...   i don't intend to  tell anyone right... i am supposed to be muslim because we are born muslims... my parents and grandparents were... i was taught that at school ; home and society... i was brainwashed..  if people know that i am atheist now... some will laugh some will avoid me .. i may go to jail for this  because it is considerd a crime in my country to be atheist if you were muslim before.    how can i deal with this situation  i really don't know... event my closest friends don't know....neither my family-

 advice needed. thanx
