Yasmine Muhammed Joins Board of Advisors of the Brighter Brains Institute

Posted: Mon, May 01, 2017 | By: Humanism



Yasmine Muhammed is an Arab-Canadian university educator, activist, and author who has a blog called Confessions of an Ex-Muslim.

She recently completed a memoir entitled: From Al Qaeda to Atheism. In it she describes how, even though she was born and raised in North America, she endured the same traumas that are familiar to Muslims across the planet. As a child, she was beaten for not memorizing the Quran.

As a teenager, she was forced into a marriage to a member of Al Qaeda (after he was bailed out of prison by Osama bin Laden). And as an adult, she wore a niqab, and lived in a home/prison with paper covering all the windows. Yet, somehow, with nothing but a high school diploma and a baby in tow, she got out.Yasmine’s message is one of hope to her fellow ExMuslims.

Brighter Brains Institute is very happy to have her own our Board of Advisors. We are presently discussing with her how we can assist activists living in Islamic nations.
