Muslims are leaving Islam at the fastest rate in its history for good reasons. On top of that, Islam is losing grip on its most effective tool of spreading: baby production - as muslim fertility rate is rapidly declining in recent decades, as shown in:

See graph at the end of the page, Muslim vs World/Christian fertility rate will converge very soon:

Demographic transition and declining fertility

"Over the last 22 years (1989 – 2010) the average fertility rate of the whole word declined from 3.50 to 2.56. A fall of 0.94 children per. women or 27% less children per women over the 22 years. The weighted average fertility rate for Christian nations(Term 12) declined from 3.26 to 2.56. A fall of 0.7 children per. women, or 21% less children per women over the 22 years. The weighted average fertility rate for the Muslim nations(Term 13) declined from 5.17 to 3.00. A fall of 2.17 children per. women or 42% less children per women over the 22 years. The fertility gap of 0.24 children per women, which existed between the world average and the average for Christian countries disappeared. The fertility gap between the Muslim countries and the Christian average declined from 59% in 1989 to 17% in 2010, a narrowing of the gap of 71%. If the trends of the last 22 years continue – which they are likely to do, since population trends tend to be fairly predictable in the near future – the Muslim and world/Christian fertility will converge in around 2015. Revised down from 2022/3 from last projection, made with numbers available until 2008."

Stands to reason....as muslim women become empowered they reject polgymy, early marriage and a life of constant childbearing.
They'd probably reject islam given the chance!
South Sudan being a great example of people who valued dignity rather than the cult of islam!

"given the chance" - the "chance" is always there, but the baggage may be too big to drop (families, friends, community, comfort zone money, and sometimes their lives).

Unless there is a compelling reason (such as finding another faith to be true), I see no reason why they would give up their comfort zone by giving up their "muslim" label - even if they are atheists in practice.
