15 Questions Ex-Muslims Have For Muslims In Singapore

1 Censoring others

If someone insulted Islam or Allah or the Prophet, what would your response be? If you could just shut someone up to prevent him from insulting or critiquing Islam, would you?


2 Critique of Islam

What about critique of Islam? Is that permitted or should that not be allowed ? Are there questions that cannot or should not be asked, pertaining to Islam? If so, what are they ? And why can’t those questions be asked ? Does critique and honest curiosity count as intolerance and hatred towards Muslims and Islam?


 3 Misconceptions about Islam

What are some questions that you think non-Muslims in Singapore might have about Muslims in Singapore ? Do you think that ex-Muslims are mistaken in the way that they have perceived Islam? Or how about non-Muslims, in what ways do you think that non-Muslims have false assumptions about Islam?


4 Being Offended


Is offence taken or given? Who is responsible as in the case of Charlie Hebdo for the retaliatory actions of the murderers of the editors ?


5 Apostasy of a family member

If someone in your family chose to leave Islam, would you still consider him family? Will he be treated the same, or differently? If differently, how so? Why?


6 Friendships with Ex-Muslims

If your friend chooses to leave Islam, do you think it is possible for you to still continue being friends with him? How so?


7 Equality of gender in Islam

Would you say that Islam in Singapore treats women equally? Even though in Islam it clearly states in the Quran that a woman will receive half the inheritance of her male sibling, among other things, and that sharia dictates that a woman’s testimony is only half the value of that of a man’s?
*Al-Quran : 2:282

8 Consequences of Muslim apostasy in general

If a Muslim leaves Islam in a country where sharia is the law, is it right, or necessary, to kill him, as stated according to sharia law?


9 Relevance of the Quran


What are the verses in the Quran today that no longer have any relevance in today’s society? Since some verses are said to be only contextually and historically relevant and that a lot of the context then, does not apply now. How many percent of the Quran is irrelevant today ?

 

1 book


10 Emulating the Prophet

What are the practices of the prophet that should not be emulated ? Is fondling a girl and underage marriage allowed or even to be recommended or is that no longer recommended? Is slavery in Islam condoned, if it was still permissible today?
*Sahih Bukhari 3:38:504
*Sahih Bukhari 7:62:16
*Sahih Bukhari 7:62:17


11 Islam, a religion of peace


Is Islam a religion of peace? If so, why do Muslims around the world act in non a non-peaceful manner when they find something offensive. Numerous Bangladeshi bloggers have been hacked to death on the streets for blasphemy.  A fatwa calling for the death of blasphemers was imposed by Ayatollah Khomeini to Salman Rushdie in 1989. Theo Van Gogh, the film producer of Submission(2004) was killed as a response for his role in making the film, that criticized Islam’s treatment of women.


12 Other Muslim denominations in Singapore

How do you view Shi’ah’s in Singapore and the other Muslim denominations ? Are they to blame for anything, or everything bad that has happened in Islam?


13 Implementation of Sharia Law


If possible, should you want for the full extent of Sharia law in Singapore, given that the Sharia is supposedly the highest standard of ruling in any society, after all, it was decided by Allah.


14 Refusal of Sharia Law

What would it mean if a Muslim refuses sharia law, does that make him a hypocrite? Does that make him a non-Muslim?


15 The correct brand of Islam

Who is practicing the right brand of Islam? It is always said that anything that doesn’t seem right in Islam is due to misinterpretation. Any unfair punishment or unequal treatment is said to be a wrong interpretation on the doer’s part.  So who is actually interpreting it correctly then?
