What we're about

This group is a warm, accepting, supportive and fun community where you can connect and engage with your fellow Ex-Muslims - people who have left the religion for other religious or a-religious ways of life, including those who still identify culturally with being a Muslim.

Realising that you no longer believe in God, that you're agnostic or that you want to take on a new religion is not an easy path to walk in the Muslim community. It can be isolating, confusing and tumultuous. Most of us are not able to discuss our views openly with family and friends for fear of ostracisation, shame and even threats of physical violence for some.

We created this forum so that we can begin to find each other and start to build our community. So come join us and feel free to share your journey so far and the challenges you might still be grappling with or to simply have fun and just hang out.

We're also acutely aware that leaving Islam can be particularly tough for women due to the misogynistic nature of our culture which tends to place far greater weight on the need for women to conform and comply and that tends to penalise and judge women more harshly for deviating from convention. So we extend an extra warm welcome to all our fellow Ex-Muslim Women - fear not, please come join us!

We look forward to seeing you all at our next meet-up!
