Amira Abbasi, Converts, #(2242)

Apr 16, 2015

I’ve always been a rather great believer in Islam, born in Karachi, Pakistan I was surrounded in it and grew up accepting and defending it for no reason other than it being the religion of my parents. When I was in College, in the UK after we immigrated, during my half term holiday, having completed my coursework early, I saw this rather funny, intelligent, eccentric man on TV called Richard Dawkinson “The Big Question”; and I first dismissed him as an idiot who didn’t know what he was talking about, but just for the sake of even handedness, and so as not to be completely and utterly biased, I read his Magnum Opus: “The God Delusion” and once I started it…I found myself curiously compelled by the simple logic of it. All the arguments I had used previously in defence of Religion, suddenly melted away and left them bare for the empty idiocy it was. And my faith deserted me the more I read, until by the time I finished, I was near enough a 6 on the 7 point scale the genius of Mr. Dawkins devised.

I owe him ever so much, read his works…do your research, and if you still believe in your faith by the end of it. You’re either indoctrinated or plain stupid.

    Saqab. If your faith in Allah is strong, you could read this book and it would have no effect. I challenge you to challenge you’re own faith, and see if you have the inner strength to read. Amira had the courage.
