Ex-Muslim: The Discrepancies Between Science and the Qur’an Helped Me Leave the Faith

The Ex-Muslims of North America released the latest video in their project featuring apostates willing to speak out publicly.

This time, we meet Ibaad, a man who loves science, but realized at a young age that the descriptions of the universe in the Qur’an didn’t match up with what the evidence showed.


The Qur’an talks about the Earth being the center of the universe, and it’s pretty clear that’s not the case, and it led me to question the religion even more… If one aspect of this self-proclaimed “perfect” religion is flawed, then what does it say about everything else?

Ibaad also discusses how the verses in the Qur’an showed a clear preference for him (as a male) over his wonderful, independent sisters, and he felt that didn’t make any sense. Reading the Qur’an, in other words, made him turn away from the Qur’an.

These videos are incredible. Be sure to watch the others in the series right here.
