This time, we meet Huda and her parents Sameera and Luke. Luke is Huda’s step-dad and a convert to Islam, which made him even more passionate about the faith when he joined their family.
But soon, Luke realized the religion’s misogyny and disturbing attitude toward non-believers weren’t just views held by a radical fringe. They were “part and parcel of traditional Islam itself.” He had to leave. And he wanted to lead his family out of the religion, too.
I was amazed by how smooth their transition out of Islam was. It doesn’t always work out that way, obviously, but it gives me hope that some Muslims who doubt the faith might have a path out of it that isn’t full of drama and fear.
