EP101: Leaving Ahmadiyya & Islam 🕋 with Reason on Faith


https://youtu.be/EvTiLQm_CbU

Watch the video version of this conversation (for Subscribers): https://www.subscribestar.com/posts/25818 

Sohail Ahmad (@ReasonOnFaith) was raised in the minority Islamic sect of Ahmadiyyat, a community that is persecuted relentlessly by mainstream Muslims. Today, he has come out of the closet with an explosive, controversial video discussing at length why he has left Ahmadiyyat, why he has left Islam, and why, despite rejecting his faith, his compassion for the well-being and safety of his Ahmadi Muslim family and friends remains as intact as ever. If you are a Muslim, or an Ahmadi Muslim, with doubts and questions, this is a must-listen conversation.

We talk about the latest on the historical records that give us clues to how Islam arose, in a riveting and eye-opening conversation. Check it out.

EP89: An Ex-Muslim Embraces Hinduism ☪️→🕉️ With Farhan Qureshi

https://youtu.be/kOts1_m5-i4

He then left Ahmadiyyat and became a devout mainstream Sunni Muslim for around a decade, during which he publicly debated Christian scholars like James White and David Wood.
