I think the question is I think now you came out as a word as and as a non-believer and gay while still at home in an Islamist Muslim families so what happened then well I mean when I first kind of realized I was gay and I accepted myself as a gay Muslim I slowly I mean after a few months after that I I kind of you know going to contact online with a group of other progressive Muslims it's called Muslims for progressive values they've got associate status at the the UN I believe and and it is an American Muslim organization and they're very like they they advocate for for gay rights and you know being gay is OK in Islam and you know they're very progressive and very liberal just like my views were at the time no and you know I befriended them talk to them a lot and I felt more comfortable and then slowly I started coming up to all of my closest friends I came up to seven people in person individually every single one of them was Muslim and to my shock and surprise every single one of them accepted me because these people were like the people that were the closest to me the ones I trusted that ones that you know I cared about oh I don't know I knew they cared about a lot about me now whilst they might not have necessarily accepted you know that all being gay is OK in Islam they accepted me as a person and they they kind of they were still friends with me you know they still like me as a person and I was very surprised at that because I was pretty sure at the time before kind of chaos within that and he some of them would kind of you know turn away and just reject me but that wasn't the case so I came out to them and then you know when I got at this stage I was very progressive and started you know because you know and become really progressive and liberal at this stage I kind of I didn't believe that heaven Janna was you know limited to just Muslims I believed it was open to everyone atheists agnostics Christians Jews whatever if you're a good person you'll go to heaven that was kind of the understanding of Islam I had at that time so for me now actually kind of going back and questioning wasn't scary at all and I just naturally kind of because I've changed my views of evolution on radical Islam and then on my sexuality I just thought one day I just love em hmm what about the whole concept of religion that's like questioning the entire concept of religion and River in revelation and that was actually really easy and when I kind of looked into that started reading a lot a lot of stuff from Richard Dawkins watching a lot of his my interviews and debates read a lot from Christopher Hitchens Sam Harris and a few other kind of read come big atheists and I realized actually they made a lot of sense that you know the whole concept of revealed religion was you know no wasn't very reasonable so at that time I then basically just left is long and that was not hard for me at all at all the hardest thing for me was actually becoming D radicalized hmm this in comparison was nothing it didn't even feel very I mean it was emotional don't get me wrong but in comparison there was nothing you

Islam The Beautiful Religion

( Be Just )

Quran Verse:5:8
'' O ye who believe! stand out firmly for God, as witnesses to fair dealing, and let not the hatred of others to you make you swerve to wrong and depart from justice. Be just: that is next to piety: and fear God. For God is well-acquainted with all that ye do. ''

Qur'an 4:58
'' Indeed, God commands you to render trusts to whom they are due and when you judge between people to judge with justice. Excellent is that which God instructs you. Indeed, God is ever Hearing and Seeing.''

( The Rules Of War )

Quran 2:190
'' Fight in the way of God those who fight you but do not transgress. Indeed. God does not like transgressors. ''

Quran 2 :193
'' And fight them on until there is no more oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in God; but if they cease, Let there be no hostility except to those who practice oppression. ''

Quran 4:90
''………So if they withdraw from you and cease their hostility and offer you peace, in that case Allah has not granted you permission to fight against them.''

Quran 8:61
''And if they seek peace, then you also seek it, and put your trust in God. He is the Hearer, the Knowledgeable.''

( Stand Up For Justice )

Quran 4 : 135O
'' Ye who believe! stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to God, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for God can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest ye swerve, and if ye distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily God is well-acquainted with all that ye do.''

Quran 16: 90
"Indeed, Allah orders justice and good conduct and giving to relatives and forbids immorality and bad conduct and oppression. He admonishes you that perhaps you will be reminded."

( Who Are The Good Human Being? )

Quran Verse 177
'' Righteousness is not that you turn your faces toward the east or the west, but [true] righteousness is [in] one who believes in God, the Last Day, the angels, the Book, and the prophets and gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to relatives, orphans, the needy, the traveler, those who ask [for help], and for freeing slaves; [and who] establishes prayer and gives charity; [those who] fulfill their promise when they promise; and [those who] are patient in poverty and hardship and during battle. Those are the ones who have been true, and it is those who are the righteous. ''

( Freedom To Believe And To Reject )

Quran 2: 256
'' Let there be no compulsion in religion. Truth stands out clear from error ''

Quran 10:99
'' And had your Lord willed, those on earth would have believed – all of them entirely. Then would you compel the people in order that they become believers? ''

( Tolerance For Other Religions )

Quran 109: 1- 6
Say,"O disbelievers,

I do not worship what you worship.

Nor are you worshippers of what I worship.

Nor will I be a worshipper of what you worship.

Nor will you be worshippers of what I worship.

For you is your religion, and for me is my religion."

( Protection for Idol Worshiper )

Quran [9:6]
"And if any one of the polytheists seeks your protection, then grant him protection so that he may hear the words of Allah. Then deliver him to his place of safety. That is because they are a people who do not know. "

Quran [16:125]
“Call people to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good teaching, and argue with them in the most courteous way”

Quran [7:199]
“Be tolerant, command what’s right, pay no attention to foolish people”

( Friendship With Non Muslims )

Quran Chapter 60 Verse 8
'' God does not forbid you from those who do not fight you because of religion and do not expel you from your homes – from being righteous toward them and acting justly toward them. Indeed, God loves those who act justly. ''

(( God teaches us throughout the Quran that there are righteous Jews and Christians. As such there is no prohibition for Muslims to be friends with Jews, Christians or people of any other faith))

( Do Christians And Jews and other non-Muslims go to the Heaven? )

Quran 2:62
'' Those who believe (in the Qur'an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,->ANY<- who believe in God and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. ''

(Quran 3:113-114)
'' Not all of them are alike: Of the People of the Book ( Christians and Jews ) are a portion that stand (For the right): They rehearse the Signs of God all night long, and they prostrate themselves in adoration. They believe in God and the Last Day; they enjoin what is right, and forbid what is wrong; and they hasten (in emulation) in (all) good works: They are in the ranks of the righteous.''

( Allah Is The Protector Of Monasteries, Churches, Synagogues And The Mosques )

Quran 22:40
[They are] those who have been evicted from their homes without right – only because they say, "Our Lord is God ." And were it not that God checks the people, some by means of others, there would have been demolished monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques in which the name of God is much mentioned. And God will surely support those who support Him. Indeed, God is Powerful and Exalted in Might.

( Why Are There So Many Different Religions In The World ? )

Quran 5 48
''…… If God wanted He could have made all of you a single nation. But He willed otherwise in order to test you in what He has given you; therefore try to excel one another in good deeds. Ultimately you all shall return to God; then He will show you the truth of those matters in which you DISPUTE.''

NOTE:
Quran 3:85 ''If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to God), never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter He will be in the ranks of those who have lost (All spiritual good)''

My explanation of above verse

( The above verse saying is that God will not accept a religion from the Muslims and the non-Muslims but total submission to God. )
Question: How Can Muslim And the non-Muslim submit to the God?

Answer: Be nice to other human being and Do not lie, Do not steal, Do not cheat, Do not hurt other and Do charity work.

( God Allow Muslims To Marry And Eat Food From Christian And Jew And Vice Versa )

Quran 5;5
''This day [all] good foods have been made lawful, and the food of those who were given the Scripture ( Christian and Jew) is lawful for you and your food is lawful for them. And [lawful in marriage are] chaste women from among the believers and chaste women from among those who were given the Scripture ( Christian and Jew) before you, when you have given them their due compensation, desiring chastity, not unlawful sexual intercourse or taking [secret] lovers. And whoever denies the faith – his work has become worthless, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.''

( Kindness Toward Atheists / Apostate )

(Quran 60:8)
'' As for such [of the unbelievers( atheist)] as do not fight against you on account of [your] faith, and neither drive you forth from your homelands, God does not forbid you to show them kindness and to behave towards them with full equity: for, verily, God loves those who act equitably. ''

( All The Terrorists / Killers Will Inter Hell Fire )

Quran 5:32
"……Whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land – it is as if he had slain mankind entirely……"

( Turned Your Enemies Into Your Best Friends )

Quran (41:34)
"The good deed and the evil deed are not alike. Repel the evil deed with one which is better, then lo! he, between whom and thee there was enmity (will become) as though he was a bosom friend."

( In The Sight Of God Men And Women Are Equal )

Quran (16:97)
“To whoever, male or female, does good deeds and has faith, We shall give a good life and reward them according to the best of their actions.

Quran 9:71
''And the believers, men and women, are protecting friends one of another; they enjoin the right and forbid the wrong, and they establish worship and they pay the poor-due, and they obey God and His messenger. As for these, God will have mercy on them. Lo! God is Mighty, Wise.''

Quran 30:21
“And of His signs is that He created for you from yourselves mates that you may find tranquility in them; and He placed between you affection and mercy…”

The Prophet Muhammad said, “Heaven lies under the feet of your mother.”

( Human Are One family )

Quran 49:13
" O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of God is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And God has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things)."

( All The Raciest People Will Inter Hellfire )

Quran (30:22): "And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the diversity of your languages and your colors. Indeed in that are signs for those of knowledge."

The '' BASIC '' message of God to human is that YOU believe in God and be good to other human being AND in the returned God will reward you a new life in the Paradise.

* The Quran ONLY guide you how to become good human being.

* You are good human being or bad human being that is YOUR choice.

* No one can forced you to become good human being

* You MUST work HARD for to become good human being.

* Why we should do good deeds and avoid bad deeds?

* Do Good – it's for You. Do Bad – It's against you

* Find the excuse to help other and forgive other NOT the other way around

* YOUR final destination is either Hell or Heaven

* So work HARD toward choice of YOUR destination

Quran 17:7
" If you do good, you will do so for your own good. And if you do evil, it will be to your own loss."
