Leaving Faith Behind gives voice to women and men who were born into Muslimfamilies and communities, but who have made the decision to leave Islam or todissent against some of the most significant aspects of Islamic doctrine.

Aliyah, who realized as a young woman that she did not have to live by rigid rulesand concepts that suffocated her true self.

Hassan, who became a practicing Muslim in his teens, but for whom doubts led him toleave the faith in his fifties.

Jimmy, banished from his home and family when he was discovered to be gay.

Marwa, who keeps secret from her community the fact that she can no longer practicea religion that she believes degrades and denies basic rights to women.

Aisha, for whom the journey from belief to disbelief was a gradual process involvingpersonal challenge and confrontations with friends and family.

As increasing numbers of people in Western society choose to turn away fromorganized religion, this book allows the stories of some of them to be heard: thereasons for their decisions to leave, the challenges of leaving, and the effects on theirlives and relationships. It also captures portraits of life and culture within Muslimcommunities in our fast-changing world, and how they are reacting and responding tomigration, secularization, more inclusive attitudes to gender and sexuality, and othertrends of modern society.
