How many muslims leave Islam?

→ According to research carried out by the respected Pakistani-born American Muslim Dr. Ilyas Ba-Yunus (1932 - 2007), 75% of New Muslim Converts in the US leave Islam within a few years. Listen to the clip detailing this research (or watch on Youtube).

70% new muslim become apostates in USA, 30-40% in UK! This is a iERA video in which a british convert Yusuf Chambers (now works with iERA) begging for donations and Zakat while stating this fact. Perhaps he was a bit naive and honest, since most muslims do not acknowledge the existence of ex-muslims. (watch on Vimeo).

Iranians are leaving islam in growing numbers.

→ There are certainly no penal sanctions for converting from Christianity to any other religion. In Islamic countries, on the other hand, the issue is far from dead. Ibn Warraq's Leaving Islam - Apostates Speak Out is worth watching.

Muslims Leaving Islam in Droves.

2 million ethnic Muslims converted to Christianity in Russia.

    [edit]My Testimony of Leaving Islam

    I converted to Islam about ten months ago at the time of this writing, thinking as many converts do that it is a rational religion with reasonable teachings and hoping that it would help to ease many of the psychological issues I have. That, after all, is how the religion is presented to the general public.
    What I came to find was that most Muslims, while being friendly, outgoing, and rational people to some extent (speaking from my own experience), were completely irrational and convinced that they know everything about every religion on the planet, when in reality (and I say this from the point of view of someone who has studied world religions a great deal) they know nothing about any except their own, and even that is debatable.
    But when I discovered that certain parties had written Arabic pieces and poems that matched the Qur'an both in literary style and rhyme scheme (these can be viewed, if the link has not already been provided on this website, at, that was the breaking point for me.
    I was then able to give Muhammad the title that I have given many religious leaders: "crazy cult leader bent on gaining power and influence off the backs of his followers." Besides this, in retrospect, I hated the person I was when I was a Muslim. I was a robot, acting for nothing more than the selfish hope of a farcical paradise.
    If certain people want to surrender their minds to this inane, drab, monotonous, and outdated religion, then they should go right ahead. As for me, I count myself among those who think for themselves.

    I'm a muslim revert, but didn't last long. I found too many issues with Islam just by instincts. While reading the Qur'an I thought it sounded strange. Like so much of it didn't make sense, disconnected, etc. I thought at first it was the translation but now reading this site and others I realise my inner feelings were correct.

    Although I still believe in some kind of divine, I just do my own thing. I follow what I feel is correct for me. Not a religion dictated by some ancient person.
