Punishment of Apostasy
Question asked by Ali Zafar.
Posted on: Wednesday, May 31, 2006 - Hits: 3566

My question is that if somebody wants to convert from Islam to any other religion does Islam let him or her do that? I was told that this is not allowed and is punishable by death. Does not this mean that there is no freedom of choice in Islam? I am al-hamdullah a Muslim and just want to know about it.

There are two views in this regard. You have referred to one view. Another view which think is intellectually more convincing is that there is no punishment for a person who becomes an apostate by leaving Islam.
