Who are you, what brought you here, where are you coming from, when were you made aware of AU, why did you decide to join...
You and Neal should work on something together... But can poets do that?
Of course we can :) Right now isn't good because things are flying this way and that way lately but I would definitely want to do so when I'm settled.
Edmond, thanks for joining.
Same to you Chris :)
I liked your introduction, welcome to the world of clarity!
Believe in yourself.
Keep writing no matter how bad it seems as I am in the same boat there with you when it comes to writing!:) Write a piece come back to it at a later date and dislike what I wrote!
Hello Davy :)
I'm still fighting that and hopefully I'll get this writing thing down eventually.
Great :) And I'm always up for friends on Twitter especially atheists.
I'm "Hope" or you can call me Amal... 30 years old.. a wife and a mother.. I was raised as a muslim sunni... they taught us at schools some Islamic lessons as well as other sciences..see more education in Saudi Arabia I went to a mosque and memorized "The Three Assets" by Abd al-Wahhab.. I studied the "Tawhid" for Muhammad ibn Abd-al-Wahhab.. I taught the Arabic language and Tajwid for non arabic speakers.. so, I used to be called wahhabi! I didnt like the name whhabi :P I used to call myself a sunni!
I became Sufisi for 2 years lol :)
then returned back to the whabbi.. I was lost really and brain washed! but I knew that there is something wrong with Islam! really...
I met a christian girl from egypt I enjoyed talking with her about religion, she encouraged me to read for Dr Kamel Al-Najjar..
I read the book by chance "Critical reading of Islam" by Dr Kamel Al-Najjar is an Ex-Muslim atheist also I read all books of Nabil Fayad he's an atheist from syria .. and I said yes to freedom! :)
so, I'm born again! very happy! so, I'm a member of 'Atheist Universe' now! Atheism is great.. Atheists are lovely guys!
I am fine and safe and my husband is okay with my Atheism!
I'm always impressed by Muslims who become atheists.
The religious conditioning must be quite intense. I can only imagine the kind of social pressures that burdens you as Islam permeates so much of daily life. Hats off Amal!
