The first book of its kind, Leaving Faith Behind tells the true stories of women and men who were born into Muslim families and have made the difficult decision to leave Islam. Stories include the woman who has struggled to live without the hijab because of emotional abuse and threats from her family, the man who was shunned by his community after coming out as gay, the bisexual woman who ran away from home and the man who has created underground networks connecting ostracised and scared ex-Muslims.

Fiyaz Mughal is the founder and director or Faith Matters, an organisation committed to reducing extremism and developing platforms for discourse and interaction between all faiths in the UK, and TellMAMA which monitors and provides support for victims of anti-Muslim incidents.
Aliyah Saleem chose to leave Islam at the age of 19 and has since founded Faith to Faithless to support ex-religious people in minorities.
