Toutefois, Ahmad est un apostat musulman. Il connaît le livre et n'a aucune hésitation à le dénoncer pour ce qu'il est et à se moquer des arguments de ceux qui y voient un texte d'origine divine.
Extrait de son texte:
Six years ago, it never crossed my mind that I would be writing an article like this. I never thought I’d be looking on the religion I believed in once the way I am today.
(...) The problem with Islam for the outsider is that in the face of it and in the way it’s generally presented, it kind of makes more sense than any other Abrahamic religion. It’s kind of more practical, and it has way less nonsense in its teachings, yet still, it has what is enough for it to share the same quality of being man made.
(...) The Quran makes the claim that it’s the word of God, and that it’s miraculous, and so do Muslims. Just ask any average Muslim for a proof of that, they will straight away tell you that the Quran is a linguistic miracle as it claims, that no other book is like it, that the Arabs at the time of Muhammad – who regarded language, poetry and eloquence in the highest regards- could never produce anything like it in its beauty.
Yet ask the same person for a single example, then watch them stand there with no answer, simply because they just repeat what they were told. It’s true that the Quran’s language is somewhat unique, yet only just like the works of Shakespeare and the symphonies of Mozart. No one could produce anything like them, because each carry the style of their author. No miracle is needed, not to mention that the Arabic speaker can search online to find that the Quran does in fact contain grammatical and linguistic errors, which Muslim scholars tried to come up with the most bizarre excuses for as many as they could of these errors.
(...) That’s when Muslims start pouring their “Scientific miracles in the Quran” on you, which is basically a verse in the Quran that is given steroids and then bent in all shapes and directions to make it look as if it holds a fact that only modern science could discover.
(...) Scientific Errors
Quran is full of them, simple as that. It says that asteroids, planets and stars are for shooting devils that try to listen to the heavens. Its says that a famous general (not named but is believed to be Alexander the Great) has found the sun to be setting in a hot muddy water spring. It says that an ant spoke and that King Solomon heard it. It says that heaven (the sky) was raised and is being held so that it won’t fall on earth. Do I need to go on or are you still laughing?
(...) I have chosen to only consider the Quran here as it’s what all Muslim, regardless of what sect they belong to hold as true. Hopefully in a later blog I’ll be able to include the Hadith (Muhammad's sayings and actions). Until then do not let any Muslim –ignorantly in their good intention- fool you with a book that you can’t read in its original language.
Un des mes anciens élèves m'avait offert un Coran en cadeau. J'ai essayé de le lire car je voulais être capable de le critiquer, mais c'est tellement tordu comme texte que j'ai abandonné à chaque fois. Un jour, j'aurai peut-être assez de temps à perdre pour y replonger...
D'ici là, je vous invite à écouter les témoignages d'autres ex-musulmans qui sont très bien placés pour nous parler de leur ancienne religion, comme par exemple Maryam Namazie, Salman Rushdie, Soufiane Zitouni, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Djemila Benhabib, Nabila Ben Youssef ou Mona Walter (bien que dans ce dernier cas, à en juger par son pendentif, elle semble avoir malheureusement échangé un endoctrinement pour un autre):
