Islam Under Scrutiny by Ex-Muslims

Islamic Voodoos



This article probes into the traditions, customs, practices, and rites of Islam, which are largely based on Arab Bedouins’ society of Muhammad's time. In a modern world, these Islamic customs and traditions are no more than superstitious beliefs and irrational acts—better known as voodoo practices. These Islamic Voodoos encompass practically every aspect of a Muslim’s life—from birth to death. There are Islamic voodoos for angels, animals, biology, sorcery, resurrection, soul, Satan, hygiene, women, medicine, toilet practices and so on. Sourcing from the founts of Islam, such as the Qur'an and ahadith, we learn that much of what the Muslims believe to be divine, pure, salubrious, and supernatural actually have no scientific or rational basis. Muslims are pathetically duped by the claims that these Islamic Voodoos are meant to improve and uplift their lives, materially as well as spiritually. This is plain Islamic deception. The sooner the Muslims get rid of these illogical and senseless Islamic traditions and customs, the sooner they will be free from the bondage of Islamic Voodoos.


Chapter 1



The world is perplexed with Islam. Hardly a day passes when we do not read any news about ‘Peaceful’ Islam. Islamists often tell us that Islam is a religion of peace, moderation, logic and practicality. They will even insist that Islam is scientific, rational, and there is no superstition and irrationality in Islam. This article probes deeply into the claims of these shrewd Islamists.

This article exposes the lies these Islamists propagate. You will learn how deeply Islam is mired in absolute superstitions, irrationality, mind‑boggling, endless, meaningless rituals and customs. In all the core scriptures of Islam (such as the Qur'an and ahadith) we find unbelievable irrationality, superstition and rites that will even beat the rituals practiced by many religious cults in Africa, South America and other parts of the world. Collectively, these rituals are known as voodoo and/or black magic. As there are always Islamic versions of any item (such as Islamic Science, Islamic Computer, Islamic Food, Islamic Psychology, Islamic Bomb…and so on), there are also Islamic Voodoos and Islamic Black Magic. These Islamic Voodoos are often carefully ensconced by the shrewd Islamists, lest the world know the truth. But this hide‑and‑seek game cannot go on forever. Thanks to the power of the internet, we are now able to expose this dark secret of Islam to the gullible world population. I can assure you that without the internet, I could have never published this article in any Islamic country, as well as in most western countries, because of their culture of too much political correctness. Many Muslim might be shocked that their, pure, unblemished, scientific and latest revelation for mankind’s upliftment could contain such voodoos.

True, most religions do contain many irrational, unscientific, illogical and superstitious elements, which, today we laugh at, and dismiss them. However, there is no shortage of diehard believers who still cling to those voodoos. So why must we blame Islam? You see, the most important difference between Islam and other faith is the compulsory nature of Islam. Thus, if a Hindu follows Hindu Voodoo, it is the choice of the individual. There is no compulsion for all Hindus to practice Hindu voodoos. Ditto for Christians. There are no laws in any Christian‑majority or Hindu‑majority countries to force them to indulge in voodoo rites. This is not the case with Islam. Since Islam is the ‘complete’ code of life, as per Allah’s dicta, and as per Muhammad’s Sunna (Muhammad’s traditions and acts), it is incumbent upon all Muslims to emulate in full those Islamic Voodoos. There are severe penalties for not practicing Islamic Voodoos. In many Islamic countries, much of the Islamic Voodoos you will read in this article, are enforced with full force of law. For example, in Malaysia and Iran a Muslim is fined, or whipped or incarcerated for eating in public during Ramadan. Ditto for Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. The Islamists, will often extol the virtue of Ramadan fasting, although there is no medical evidence to suggest this to be true. But in Islam, violating this voodoo of Ramadan fasting is treated as a serious crime, punishable by lashing, fine, or jail sentences.

Most Islamic Voodoos enunciated in this article reflect the traditions, customs, practices and beliefs of the illiterate, barbaric, and uncouth Bedouin Arabs leading a nomadic life in the harshness of desert. Muhammad was a product of his time and traditions. He simply codified those Arab Bedouin voodoos as Allah’s commandment and empowered this voodoo system to regulate a Muslim’s life. A Muslim cannot escape Islamic Voodoos; he will have to live with them and die with them. From birth to death, in every phase and stages of his life he will be hunted down with Islamic voodoos. Every action he does, he must ensure that that conforms to Islam—more precisely, with Islamic Voodoos. He must not question those mindless Islamic rituals, he must not doubt even a word of the Qur'an, and he must not deviate even a millimetre from the Islamic specifications. This means that the entire belief system in Islam is purely based on blind faith. In verse 3:32 Allah says that Muslims must not question Islam, they must blindly follow Muhammad, because following Muhammad is following Allah (3:31, 4:80, 5:48, 33:71). In verse 24:51 Allah clarifies this further when He says: the blind believers are the true followers when they say, without any arguments, 'we hear and we obey'. This means Allah likes blind believers. A hadis in Sunaan Abu Dawud (3.41.5112) says that Muhammad’s tongue is Allah’s tongue, and another hadis in Sahih Bukhari (4.52, 2004) writes that whoever obeys Muhammad obeys Allah, whoever disobeys Muhammad disobeys Allah. Please note that these are words emanating from the unalterable words of Allah and Muhammad. No power on earth could ever change them.

Therefore, it is mandatory for all Muslims that they emulate Arab Bedouin customs, traditions, manners, dress, language, practices, and their voodoos. A Muslim has no choice but to be an Arab Bedouin of Muhammad’s time. This compulsory imposition of the desert Arabs’ beliefs and actions (read voodoos) is the most problematic part of Islam. If we separate these Islamic Voodoos (read Arab Bedouin Voodoos) Islam will die. Islam’s life blood is Arabism, precisely, Bedouinism. Once non‑Arab Muslims eschew this forced Arabism on them Islam will wither away from their society. That is why exposing the inane Islamic Voodoos is actually exposing Islam at its core—the ugly and the darker sides of Islam, which most Islamists, especially those living in the west carefully attempt to hide.

When you read all the episodes of this article and you will understand why Muslims do what they do.

Wow! What infantile gibberish that there are angels,jinns,etc that muslims in the 21st century must believe in ? All this gibberish will make even an infant smirk disdainfully as it is an insult to common sense and even the intelligence of an infact! No wonder , with such absolute stupidities ,the muslim get mad that they wouldn't tolerate anyone questioning or laughing at these ludicrous fairy tales without morals - Jinns eat bones,charcoal and shit! There are muslim jinns,christian jinns , Shia jinns , sunni jinns , hanbal jinns, and so on. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! My stomach is aching laughing convulsively at the raw stupidities!

With such stupidities from Allah and his 'prophet' ,muslims are ever ready to defend them both with dire threats and violence is not surprising at all. How else can they defend the honour of their sole 'prophet' and the silly Allah from the riotous laughter that would follow these infantile gibberish? I really pity the muslims that they cannot come out of this incurable malady and integrate with modern society!

This is funny and at the same time tragic. Muslims have painted themselves into a corner, they cannot get out of it without looking stupid so anyone who points out the obvious gets threatened with death. Pitiful.

To this ISLAMIC monster,pedo, rapist MO_ HAM_ MAD true sucker,slave,dark minded fascist,dogmatic ,antidemocrat,antifreedom, JIHADIST ( is he Mr. ZAKIR NAIK? ) who is propagating his Hallucinations just like his BOSS MO /ALLA. .................. Hai --- ISLAMIC JIHADIST. You are certainly HALLUCINATIONG with your postings here - giving mis/disinformation by deception and lies & dishonesty. - just like the MO - Your profeteer, pedophile MO did . Even a 5 yr old will immediately tell that there is no comparison,no connection in whatso-ever way between the noble of the noblest SANATAN DHARMA & the paedo MO invented ( copied ) ISLAMISM !!!! Infact tehy are diametrically opposite. SANATAN DHARMA is not based on revelations,is not based on prophets,is not based on Only book of GOD - crap . SANATAN DHARMA is not dogmatic & it is not intolerant like ISLAMISM. SANATANA DHARMA do not claim that God is their GOD & the language in which it is written is chosen by GOD, that people for which it was meant were chosen by their GOD. Infact SANATAN DHARMA do not impose anything on anybody. BUt PEDO MO is intolerant,fascist,foisting his hallucinations on one & all ,killing all opponents,nonbelievers. SANATANA DHARMA do not tell you to belive in anything - it is you who has to read,think by using your intelligence,rational means that must do the right thing ,do good ,do good deeds,have good conduct,have kindness,compassion - then only you are considered as righteous person. in SANATAN DHARMA GOD is not confined to MALE entity & chauvinst . But Female- has equal if not preeminent role for all creatures existence in the universe..... One can write volumes to say that SANATAN DHARMA is in no way connected or fore told anything about pedo MO. DO not try to get some legitamacy or sanity by bringing in Hindu scriptures. It is your mental imbalance that makes you think that way.Moreover - you must also know that the values,principles,philosophy,ethos of SANATANA DHARMA are universal - eternal . All intellectuals,philosophers,thinkers of the world agree on this & know this - if they studied all theologies. There is nothing like SANATAN DHARMA on this planet. Read BHAGAVADGEETA. you will be enlightened ,ennobled,enriched,elevated & uplifted................... QQURRAN is on the opposite end - is like sewage ,inhuman,cruel,darkness,regressive,repulsive,poison to humanity.

Only Muhamad is the most hated man in the world,even by enlightened muslims as they cannot openly admit it for rear of death and torture that will be inflicted on them should they express their contempt for islam and Muhamad openly! Mohamad rapes his own 9 year old daughter Fatima ,his friend Abu Bakr's 6 year old daighter Ayesha, his own daghter in law Zainab the wife of his foster son Zayyed,the wives captured as war booty before their husbands and slitting the throats of the hussbands of the women before their very eyes and raping them. Most barbaric and ctuel! The likes of such a hallucinated psychopath the world has never seen before nor will be seen after!

On the subject of angels and Islam Mudammad it's taught had had received ay times the message of the Koran from an angle. Even IF this story is true it does not mean the Koran is of God. First,the Bible warns about "false apostles deceitful workers..." Further, "Satan himself is transformed into an angle of light." This is found in First Corinthians 11:13-15." Second, the apostle Paul warned in Galatians 1:6-9. of false gospels or "another gospel" and "though we or an angel from heaven,preach any other gospel unto you than which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so I say now again,If any man preach any other gospel unto you that ye have received,let him be accursed." The gospel of the Bible is found in First Corinthians 15:3-8. which is in great contrast to the teachings of Islam. In Sum, even IF Mudammed did receive a message from an angle it only means that it is a false message, from an accursed angle,to an accursed and false apostle. - Quotes taken from the King James Version.

Ther's nothing called a pre- requisisite to beliive in jinns. The basic islamic conditions of faith are to beleive in GOd, his Prophets, Angels, Coran, ths day of Judgement, the things you are focusing on are LITTERATURE? EITHER GOOD OR BAD? BUT LITTERATURE jinns are creatures of god, tey are unlike us. we know a little about. I, for instance , dont like people talking too much on this issue. I find them strange. The path of Allah is straight, clear, light, happiness, and peaceful, even if our llfe is hell, truly. See what the Coran says about jinns, sourat Jinn "1. Say: It has been revealed to me that a company of Jinns listened (to the Qur'an). They said, 'We have really heard a wonderful Recital! 6. 'True, there were persons among mankind who took shelter with persons among the Jinns, but they increased them in folly. 11. 'There are among us some that are righteous, and some the contrary: we follow divergent paths. 12. 'But we think that we can by no means frustrate Allah throughout the earth, nor can we frustrate Him by flight. 13. 'And as for us, since we have listened to the Guidance, we have accepted it: and any who believes in his Lord has no fear, either of a short (account) or of any injustice 18. "And the places of worship are for Allah (alone): So invoke not any one along with Allah. 26. "He (alone) knows the Unseen, nor does He make any one acquainted with His Mysteries,-
