Fringe benefits – Part 8 – Marry a mermaid January 22, 2015

male mermaidI don’t know what I was thinking about the other day but it made the infamous mermaid fatwa cross my mind. The mermaid fatwa was an edict that was issued by some “scholar’ and posted on islamqanda many years ago but has since been removed. In a nutshell, it states that mermaids are halal to eat (with one dissenting opinion) and uses several hadith to back up the verdict. An old copy can be found here:


So a fringe benefit of being an apostate is being able to marry a mermaid. Whereas Islam views mermaids as a potential food source and would support killing them, I am free to keep them off plate and marry one. If Mormons can believe that people live on the moon and sun and once prominent Islamic scholars can claim that the earth is flat then anything is possible and I can marry a mermaid. Alhamdulillah for apostasy!


Fringe Benefits – Part 7 – Celebrate different holidays December 17, 2014

Filed under: Fringe Benefits — evebitestheapple @ 9:59 pm

christmas treeI was in a nostalgic mood this morning so I put on some Christmas music and warmed some cinnamon on the stove. I haven’t celebrated Christmas or any other traditional American holiday for more than 14 years. Most Muslims know that celebrating any holiday outside of Eid is forbidden although many do it anyway. When I apostated I had to decide what I would do about the holiday issue.

After some research I decided that I would celebrate Christmas and other holidays if I wanted and that there was no real harm. I came to this decision because the history of Christmas started out as a pagan ritual and had nothing to do with Christ until Christians co-opted the holiday and made it about Christ’s mass. Contrary to popular belief, Jesus was not originally “the reason for the season”. Christmas started out as celebration of the winter harvest and change of seasons which was a time of decorating trees, gift giving, community, wreath hanging, and food. There may also be some superstition about the wreath preventing demons from coming into one’s house(soot/coal in the stocking), I don’t remember. (more…)


I thought the devils were chained away this month… July 21, 2014

I wouldn’t be surprised if this happened in the Germantown area of Philadelphia. The article states that the Muslims there tried to mete out shariah punishment for a man that was suspected of stealing. The imam tried to whack off his hand because it makes Allah happy to cut off limbs in his name. Maybe if you cut off body parts in Ramadan you get extra rewards in Jannah(sarcasm).




Jannah is boring February 8, 2014

The world can be an exciting place that can be a struggle for the Muslim to resist in an attempt to receive some fictitious reward in Jannah. I remember reading the Quran and hadith about Jannah and more than once the thought would jump in my head about how Jannah sounded so dull and boring. Being a woman all I had to look forward to was laying around for eternity waiting for my husband to come have sex with me. No television? No art shows? No roller skating? No swimming? No dancing?

No, just lie around and drink liquor out of gold cups and wait for the stallion to show up after porking his hur-al-ayn.

How depressing.

I would try to silence the thoughts with the standard “whispers of shaytaan” explanation but damn, Jannah sounded like one huge infinite snoozefest.

I’m glad I shook that belief system off and am back into the world with all its vitality and all it has to offer.


More of Muhammad’s plagarism November 29, 2013

Does this verse sound familiar:

“Indeed, those who deny Our verses and are arrogant toward them – the gates of Heaven will not be opened for them, nor will they enter Paradise until a camel enters into the eye of a needle. And thus do We recompense the criminals.” – Quran 7:40

Of course it does because Muhammad plagiarized it from here:

“Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” -Matthew 19:24

and here:

“It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” -Mark 10:25

Not to mention the two hadith found in Sahih Muslims that state the exact same thing. Islam is nothing more than a watered-down copy of the false religions of Christianity and Judaism.

Muhammad plagarizes many names of Allah from the Hebrew Bible July 1, 2013

“Are you not from everlasting, , O Lord my God, my Holy One(קְדֹשִׁ֖י )? we shall not die. O Lord, you have ordained them for judgement and, O Mighty God, you have established them for correction.” ~Habakkuk 1:12

Al-Quddus or The Holy is also  קְדֹשִׁ֖י  in this verse(The Holy written in Hebrew).

“O LORD, I have heard your speech, and was afraid: O LORD, revive your work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make it known; in wrath remember mercy(rahem).” ~Habakkuk 3:2

The Hebrew word for mercy also reflects one of the 99 names of Allah: Rahem or mercy or רַחֵ֥ם
