Another Ex-Muslim claims to be an Authority on Islam

This video has gone up because a viewer decided to post a “rebuttal” to one of our posted videos via youtube that describes the phenomenon of the fake ex-Muslim and how they are being propped up as authorities on Islam. He attempted to post a link to his youtibe page which is not allowed in the comments sections , as it is an Islamophobic hate/propaganda page. Let us look at his “facts” about Muhammad(saws) and decide whether this person is in fact an ex-Muslim as he says or simply a former Extremist Muslim, or non-practicing Muslim with little to no knowledge of the Deen:

My comments are in green.

Facts bout muhammad you aren’t taught by the imams: –

1) Muhammad ordered raids on innocent caravans and stole their stuff to pay for his “ummah”‘s expenses

Every Muslim knows that these so-called raids were to take back property that the Pagan Arabs confiscated from those Muslims still in Mecca and to counter the effect of the economic boycott policies that the Pagan Arabs imposed on the the fledgling Muslim community. Every Muslim also knows that every battle fought by the Muslims was defensive.

2) Muhammad murdered people and stonned people to death

Outright lie used by detractors of every stripe who employ a very weak exegetical method. The ahadith about the stoning as well as so-called murders an assassinations are due either to a misunderstanding of the hadith or the Orientalist and Extremist Muslim tactic of dubbing da’if hadith as either sahih or hasan. Proper scrutiny of all these reports reveals their falsehood.

3) Muhammad cut people’s hands and feet off for petty theft but himself robbed from innocent caravans

Already answered above.

4) Muhammad said only have 4 wives but disobeyed his own allah (coz he knew he made up allah) and married 12 wives one of which was 9 YEARS OLD when he was 53 YEARS OLD

The same old Orientalist garbage. Where did Allah say that Muhammad(saws) should have only four wives? Someone has not been reading his Qur’an. Someone who claims to have been Muslim no less! I will be writing an article for my other blog about this issue of Aisah(ra) and her young age when she married the Prophet(as). I do hope you read it.

5) Muhammad asked muslims to constantly be scared and live a life of fear from allah and always hate non-muslim kuffar infidels

Where is the verse saying that Muslims should live a life of fear? Throughout the Qur’an we find the opposite message. And which hadith can we find Muhammd(saws) saying “hate the kuffar“. I suspect he thought he could get away with that claim without posting evidence? 

6) Most people left islam when muhammad died but abu bakar went to war with them and forced them back to islam. The war is called “Wars of apostasy”

That is the biggest lie of all, and if he cannot see that he is merely regurgitating Islamophobic propaganda I feel sorry for him! May Allah Guide him.


When he [Muhammad] asked him about the rest he refused to produce it, so the apostle gave orders to al-Zubayr bin al-Awwam, “TORTURE HIM until you extract what he has.” So he kindled a fire with flint and steel on his chest until he was nearly dead. Then the apostle delivered him to Muhammad bin Maslama and HE STRUCK OFF HIS HEAD.” (Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 764)

“When the apostle ordered him to be killed, Uqba said, “But who will look after my children, O Muhammad?” [Muhammad’s reply] “Hell.” The man was put to death. (Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 458)

If the owner of this youtube channel knew anything about isnad, hadith criticism and the tendentious stories in the sira, you wouldn’t dare to post these stories as evidence against Mushammad(saws). He seems to be combining the neo-Orientalist garbage with Extremist Muslim beliefs here, as they are both fond of selective, unscholarly, unexamined use of Islamic sources.

The rest of this video is filled with the same types of lies, disinformation and bogus tafsir that one can expect from Islamophobes. And I really have wonder why this person has tried to cover his face and alter his voice, obscuring his real identity?

    It’s funny how i came across your site because i’m sure now that I was reading the same youtube channel that described the exact issues about mohammed (pbuh) he was trying to debate. Also, his youtube name had “exmuslim” in it and I questioned whether he truly was a muslim. I wasn’t sure if what he posted was true, but I did do some research to find more information about what he may have left behind or misunderstood in his “source of evidence” to express it in a negative way.
    You indeed are defending it, but it would be better to show clarity by providing ‘sources’ to prove his misunderstanding. I am actually on the search now.

    Allah Ma’ak
