Iran: Christian pastor accused of apostasy to die by hanging

“Death for apostasy? Absolute rubbish” scoffed the imam, when I asked him in a Q & A session after one of the ubiquitous ‘interfaith dialogues’ which are nothing but da’awa,  (proselytizing,)  and a lot of sweet talk. But that was many years ago. Has anything changed?  Let me know if you heard of a new trick, will you?

Islamic apologists in the U.S. routinely deny that Islamic law mandates that apostates from Islam be murdered. Unfortunately for the apostates, the facts are otherwise.

Muhammad, the prophet of Islam and supreme example of conduct for the Muslim (cf. Qur’an 33:21), said: “Whoever changes his Islamic religion, then kill him.” (Bukhari 9.84.57)

The Tafsir al-Qurtubi, a classic and thoroughly mainstream exegesis of the Qur’an, says this about Qur’an 2:217: “Scholars disagree about whether or not apostates are asked to repent. One group say that they are asked to repent and, if they do not, they are killed. Some say they are given an hour and others a month. Others say that they are asked to repent three times, and that is the view of Malik. Al-Hasan said they are asked a hundred times. It is also said that they are killed without being asked to repent.”

All the schools of Islamic jurisprudence all teach that a sane adult male who leaves Islam must be killed. They have some disagreements about what must he done with other types of people who leave Islam, but they have no disagreement on that.

The internationally renowned Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who has been praised as a “reformist” by pseudo-academic John Esposito and who has said this about Islamic apostasy law: “That is why the Muslim jurists are unanimous that apostates must be punished, yet they differ as to determining the kind of punishment to be inflicted upon them. The majority of them, including the four main schools of jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi`i, and Hanbali) as well as the other four schools of jurisprudence (the four Shiite schools of Az-Zaidiyyah, Al-Ithna-`ashriyyah, Al-Ja`fariyyah, and Az-Zaheriyyah) agree that apostates must be executed.”

  1. The only difference between Islam and True Christianity, is that, in Islam, it is a man that is always helping God. if someone leaves Islam, you kill them, If Someone draws the picture of Muhammad you kill them. But in Christianity, we dont protecct our God, we dont fight for our God he fights for us. He is not a weakling, that needs us to run after people with robes and hangs them. He’s the same one that destroyed Israel’s enemies in 1967, watch, he’s about to do it again. You are fighting a loosing battle.., Satan that deceived Muhammad is about to receive you all.

  2. A 45 year old non-muslim mother is in danger of being murdered by the Paki muslim mongrel mob. This is the statement made by one of the miserable retarded subhumans (muslims) who asked for her murder.
    ————————————————————————————————–The town cleric, who made the initial complaint against Bibi, called her death sentence one of the happiest moments of his life.

    “Tears of joy poured from my eyes,” Qari Salim told CNN.

    Remember the name!!!! Nice to see the muslims who read these articles stand up and fight for her – NOT – two faced bastards!!!!!

  3. that imam better talk with the Iranians then, becuase they will soon execute a Christian pastor. perhaps he should visit the Somalis-a number of ex-Muslim Christians have been murdered there recently. and swhile at it, he could visit Algeria, where a fatehr and daughter now live under a fatwa for leaving the Death Cult for Christianity!
