Muslims Leaving Islam
ISLAM FORBIDS MUSLIMS FROM LEAVING ISLAM, YET MORE AND MORE MUSLIMS HAVE LEFT ISLAM :
They wished that you disbelieve, as they have disbelieved, so that you will all be alike. Do not, take any compamnions from them, until they emigrate in the way of Allah. Then should they turn back (meaning: apostized), seize them and kill them wherever you find them; and do not take from them any companion or supporter (Quran, Chapter 4: 89)But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then are they your brethren in religion. We detail our revelations for a people who have knowledge. And if they break their pledges (ie apostaize) after their treaty (hath been made with you) and assail your religion, then fight the heads of disbelief — Lo! they have no binding oaths in order that they may desist. (Quran, Chapter 9:11,12)
After the Qur’an we turn to the Hadith. This is the command of the Prophet:
‘Any person (i.e., Muslim) who has changed his religion, kill him’ or :’baddala deenahu, faqtuhulu’ [This tradition has been narrated by Abu Bakr, Uthman, Ali, Muadh ibn Jabal, Abu Musa Ashari, Abdullah ibn Abbas, Khalid ibn Walid and a number of other Companions, and is found in all the authentic Hadith collections: Bukhari vol. 9, bk. 84, no. 57, the most famous of them all.]

Fatwa from al-Azhar, the Egyptian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs is about an Egyptian man turned apostate and the subsequent punishment prescribed for him : “This man has committed apostasy; he must be given a chance to repent and if he does not then he must be killed according to Shariah. As far as his children are concerned, as long as they are children they are considered Muslim, but after they reach the age of puberty, then if they remain with Islam they are Muslim, but if they leave Islam and they do not repent they must be killed and Allah knows best.
