I am very sad to hear that Brother Ismaeel has left Islam. See discussion here
Someone on Facebook wrote the following:
This is a common progression. Person converts to or gets into Islam. Person starts “refuting” before actually learning. As a result, person gets *refuted* because you need to *learn* before you can *refute*. Person blames Islam rather than THAT for their inability to answer certain arguments (whether in a debate or even within their own mind). Person leaves Islam.
My own leaving of Islam (for about a week) was based on a mistaken understanding of what Islam actually teaches. Happily a knowledgable brother put me right in the end! I pray that God will guide Brother Ismaeel back to the straight path. It can be very difficult being a revert sometimes..
