  1. Be safe.
    • A person who openly leaves Islam often faces death threats. So always watch out for such threats.
    • Remember that you are not alone. Millions of people have already left Islam.
  2. Learn more about Scientific Errors in the Quran, hadith and so on.
    • These errors prove that the Qur'an is not the word of God and that Muhammad is not a messenger of God.
  3. Reject the method of teaching in madrassas, where you have to learn an unknown language by heart. Instead, understand the meanings of the Islamic scriptures.
    • Abandon the mosque.
  4. Respect women as equals of men.
  5. Give up Muslim rituals.
    • For example, halal food requires lots of animals to be slaughtered. You can go vegetarian.
  6. Learn more about the life of Muhammad, what he did and why.
  7. If you are a gay from a Muslim background, understand that Allah and lots of Muslims want you dead for what you are, often for no fault of your own. Therefore, you will realize that Allah is not a god.
  8. You can convert to another religion or be an atheist or agnostic.
  9. You can adopt a foreign culture and assimilate in it.
  10. Respect and appreciate non-Muslims.
    • Non-Muslims have contributed disproportionately much more to humanity than Muslims. So be thankful to them.
    • You may have witnessed some racism by non-Muslims or open Islamophobia. While racism is not justifiable, remember that siding with Muslims or clinging to Islam will not be the best solution to it. Concepts such as Muslim unity or oneness are not suitable solutions either.
    • When Muslims face a backlash, bear in mind that they too are at fault somehow.
  11. Keep your children away from Islam.
    • Your exit from Islam might well be a sort of waste if your children are raised as Muslims and they self-identify as Muslims.
