I need help with not fearing being exposed to Islam. I’ve been too much exposed to very toxic parts of Islam (I don’t know if they are authentic or not) but it was very very discouraging. Even made it hard for me to pray etc.
Read the Quran from beginning to end many times, that is 99% of Islam. Anything that goes against its message, anything that goes even against a single verse of it, is not part of Islam.
You can also go through this blog1 and read the quotes to get an idea of what Islam is like as it is practiced by its most devout followers. If you can, read Yasmin Mogahed and Tariq Ramadan’s books.
