I only wanna know if you , ex muslims, feel the same as I do or not !!
Ok ; as an atheist who lives in an islamic country, and in order to stay on the safe side , I know for sure that I shall keep my thoughts for myself .
It 's like acquiring a new skill . I learnt how to kill those religion debates that may disclose my secret ; I also know how to return any invitation to the mosque , I have millios of excuses now ... but when it comes to Ramadan , ahh , I just don't fit in anymore !!
you know , you cannot drink, eat or smoke outdoors and get away with it , you havee no excuse for that !! you know if you do that ,you will be jailed or , if lucky enough, injured and spat on by fellow muslim citizens !
Indoors , I can drink water , I always keep a bottle in my room ; as for food I prefer fruits because they are easy to hide ! the problem is with cigarettes ;I cannot smoke because of their smell that stays for so long !!
I know Ramadan is extremly holly to muslims and I really don't wanna shock my family !! as I said before I am keeping this for myself and two other friend ; nobody else knows !! I am not satisfied !
how do you feel about this stupid month ?????
I was in Iran last year during Ramadan as I was visiting my grandparents - so you are right. You cannot eat or drink in public or you face whipping if caught by police. What can we say? Islam is inherently evil and is a retrograde force upon humanity. As an atheist in an Islamic country - you cannot express your views openly in public as apostasy carries the death penalty. May I ask, what country do you reside in?
Thanks for your reply Sassan K ; as for your question , I live in Morocco .I know that Iran is more strict than Morocco when it comes to enforcing the Islamic law ... good for you you left to a another place , hope it's not islamic though ! lol
why you are saying that this month is stupid ???
why you want muslims to respect your believes if you dont respect their believes ??????????????!!!!
First of all ; I don't have belief ,I have thoughts !
2 : I wouldn't write this if muslims respected atheists !!
3 : muslims hate and you have to accept that !
4 : I cannot eat , drink o smoke in ramadan because muslims don't respect my decisin ! that's all and yes it is astupid month
ok how do you expect muslims to respect your THOUGHTS if you dont respect their religion?????????
at least islam respect and believe in other divine religions
2. islam respect atheists (islam not muslims) : islam told us to respect everyone and work with everyone ("lakom dinokom wa liya din")
3. Islam dousnt hate and im sure you did read coran and what coran told us about respecting others whatever their thoughts are (you should make difference between islam and muslims , talk to me about ISLAM , not people because atheists can hate , everyone can hate)
4. yes you can , i saw in casablanca people eating in mcdonald and even some of my friends and i didnt judge them and yes you shouldnt eat infront of people bcz if you do that meanst u DIDNT RESPECT them because they are hungry ....
5. and by saying that ramadan is stupid , it shows that you are the one that HATES my friend
good luck on fixing ur thoughts toward others first ;)
In country, in Ramadhan eating in public is a crime punishable by law.. if you try eating in public before sunset you will go to jail and you will be lashed!!
*In my country
You should have married another infidel.
it's hard to find one .. I live in Morocco and I have been looking for any atheist friends since a long time ... I am still looking ! I want a wife who doesn't believe in fairy tales
So how do you return an invitation to the mosque? That sounds like something I can use.
I'm afraid that, unless you live alone, there's no escaping Ramadhan. I used to try to steal a snack here and there but really, since you can't have a proper meal, might as well go with the flow and enjoy iftar with your family at the end of a long fast.
By the way, Ramadhan is not as bad if you're not working, so maybe you can time your vacation to coincide with Ramadhan.
