I read this text below on a website are there any reports that say something against this atheist criticism at the time?
“ The fact that an atheist critical of religion named "Al Ma'arri" could live during that time period proved that it was anything but Islamic. This is what he said: "Do not suppose the statements of the prophets to be true; they are all fabrications. 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." He also called "Hajj" a pagan journey. Many of them held beliefs and opinions that would qualify them as heretical Muslims even by modern Islamic standard. Meanwhile in most Muslim countries nowadays, all bets are off once you start criticizing Islam openly. “
