A debate at New York University on October 25, 2012 between FTN guestwriter Farhan Qureshi, an ex-Muslim, and Christian apologist David Wood.
Category: Farhan Qureshi
Farhan Qureshi is a former Muslim and a former Muslim apologist who writes for FaithFreedom.org and FreethoughtNation.com.
As a Muslim, Farhan debated Christian missionaries on a public stage including Dr. James White, David Wood, Nabeel Qureshi, Sam Shamoun, Dr. Tony Costa, and Walid Shoebat (former PLO terrorist). He also debated on an intrafaith topic Shaikh Shaker Elsayed, the Imam of Dar al Hijrah mosque most famously knows for housing two of the 9/11 hijackers and also having Anwar Awlaki as an Imam there.
Since leaving Islam, Farhan went in search for the meaning of reality and existence, and currently claims agnosticism. After a period of time that involved grieving, praying and reflecting, he turned back to apologetics to challenge his beliefs and defend them. Since then, he has come out as a former Muslim and Muslim apologist in two debates.
