Quoting Islam — A Useful Compendium

.

Print it out, send it by email far and wide. Have it with you to quote from, at the next meeting with political figures or people in the press. They can’t be allowed to keep ignoring what is in the Qur’an and Hadith, can’t keep pretending that Muhammad was, in his life, as an exemplar for Muslims, somehow akin to Jesus and Buddha. Hold up for ridicule those who keep misinforming the public, and help thereby to shame them, and shut them up.

Muhammad says, “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.”

He says those words in the most canonical hadith collection, Sahih al-Bukhari, 9.84.57.Various other canonical hadiths attest that Muhammad called for death to those who leave Islam. That’s why even today all the schools of Islamic law prescribe death for apostasy from Islam.Check out these links to news stories, and also these links to news stories about people being killed for daring to leave Islam. And many, many more such stories have been reported in the global media.

A December 2010 survey conducted by the Pew Research Center found relatively widespread popular support for the death penalty as a punishment for apostasy from Islam: in Egypt (84% of respondents in favor of death penalty), Jordan (86% in favor), Indonesia (30% in favor), Pakistan (76% favor) and Nigeria (51% in favor).

    DANG, but I’m getting tired of seeing everyone from Robert Spencer on ALWAYS quoting Bukhari about this, in stead of the QUR’AN ITSELF:

    Sura 4:89 says those who try to leave islam must be murdered….
