Leaving Faith Behind gives voice to women and men who were born into Muslim families and communities, but who have made the decision to leave Islam or to dissent against some of the most significant aspects of Islamic doctrine.* Aliyah, who realised as a young woman that she did not have to live by rigid rules and concepts that suffocated her true self.* Hassan, who became a practising Muslim in his teens, but for whom doubts led him to leave the faith in his fifties.* Jimmy, banished from his home and family when he was discovered to be gay.* Marwa, who keeps secret from her community the fact that she can no longer practise a religion that she believes degrades and denies basic rights to women.* Aisha, for whom the journey from belief to disbelief was a gradual process involving personal challenge and confrontations with friends and family.As increasing numbers of people in Western society choose to turn away from organised religion, this book allows the stories of some of them to be heard: the reasons for their decisions to leave, the challenges of leaving, and the effects on their lives and relationships. It also captures portraits of life and culture within Muslim communities in our fast-changing world, and how they are reacting and responding to migration, secularisation, more inclusive attitudes to gender and sexuality, and other trends of modern society.
