     The Islamic claim to fame is that their nations flourished while the Western world suffered through the dark ages. They use this as proof that the Islamic way of life is best, that Allah guides,  and that great minds are produced within an Islamic government.  They argue that if Islam were wrong, these great minds would have  noticed it.

     Of course Islamic countries produced many great minds and were responsible for many accomplishments. But if one does their research, it becomes clear that these great free thinkers that Muslims claim as their own, actually disdained the ideology of Islam.


  • Zakariya ar Razi  (864-930), a Persian, was one of the greatest physicians of all times. The Islamic world claims him as their own however, his writings criticized religion in general and Islam in particular.  Almost all of Ar Razi’s philosophical books were destroyed, but these famous quotes remain:

"How can anyone think philosophically while listening to old wives' tales founded on contradictions, which obdurate ignorance, and dogmatism?"

“The prophets—these billy goats with long beards, cannot claim any intellectual or spiritual superiority. These billy goats pretend to come with a message from God, all the while exhausting themselves in spouting their lies, and imposing on the masses blind obedience to the "words of the master."

Does that sound like a Muslim?



  • Abu Ali Sina (980-1037) a Persian, made enormous contributions to medical science. His philosophies were based on Aristotle and Plato. He denied immortality and the idea that God cares about individuals. Because of his views, which were the antithesis of Islamic teachings, he became a target of an attack by the Islamic philosopher Al-Ghazali, who deemed him an apostate.

  • Ibn Rushd (1126- 1198) born in Spain (called Andelusia at the time,) was a great philosopher, scientist, and physician. His views on philosophy opposed theology and he was labeled a heretic by Christian, Jewish and Islamic leaders.  The Caliph of Marrakesh ordered all of his books on philosophy destroyed, but allowed those on medicine, mathematics and astronomy to remain.

  •  Al-Farabi (870-950), a Persian, made contributions in mathematics, philosophy, medicine and music. He also wrote books on sociology. In his books, he advanced the view that reason is greater than revelation. This was considered heretical to Muslims. He questioned the authority of the Koran and rejected predestination.

  •  Omar Khayyam (1048-1131), a Persian, was a great mathematician, astronomer and poet. Whether he believed in the existence of God is debatable, but he rejected the idea of divine intervention, an afterlife or judgment day. He was asked several times by religous officials to explain his views on Islam. Although he never did this, his poetry defied many facets of Islam, and opposed its teachings. He did however, make a hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca) to appease the Islamic officials who sought to persecute him.

  • Al-Marri (973-1057) was a Syrian poet claimed by Islam. Here are some examples of his beautiful poetry:

“The Jews, the Muslims and the Christians, They’ve all got it wrong. The people of the world only divide into two kinds, One sort with brains who hold no religion, The other with religion and no brain.”

"Do not suppose the statements of the prophets to be true. Men lived comfortably till they came and spoiled life. The "sacred books" are only such a set of idle tales as any age could have and indeed did actually produce."

"The Prophets, too, among us come to teach, Are one with those who from the pulpit preach; They pray, and slay, and pass away, and yet our ills are as the pebbles on the beach."

  "They err—Moslems, Jews,Christians, and Zoroastrians: Humanity follows two world-wide sects:One, man intelligent without religion,The second, religious without intellect."

"Had they been left alone with reason, they would not have accepted a spoken lie; but the whips were raised to strike them. Traditions were brought to them and they were ordered to say, "We have been told the truth"; If they refused, the sword was drenched with their blood.  They were terrified by scabbards of calamities, and tempted by great bowls of food, Offered in a lofty and condescending manner. "

"So too, the creeds of man: the one prevails until the other comes; and this one fails  when that one triumphs; ay, the lonesome world will always want the latest fairy tales."

"What is religion? A  maid kept close that no eye may view her; The price of her wedding gifts and dowry baffles the wooer. "   

"Of all the goodly doctrine that I from the pulpit heard, my heart has never accepted so  much as a single word."  

"O fools awake! The rites ye sacred hold are but a cheat contrives by men of old who lusted in baseness-and their law is dust."
