In the Muslim world is is a sin to convert from Islam to Christianity. Such a sin it it that there are fatwa’s concerning this deviation from the Islamic religion.
A fatwā (Arabic: فتوى; plural fatāwā Arabic: فتاوى), in the Islamic faith is a religious opinion concerning Islamic law issued by an Islamic scholar. In Sunni Islam any fatwa is non-binding, whereas in Shia Islam it could be binding, depending on the status of the scholar. Western media frequently uses the term incorrectly to specifically mean an Islamic law pronouncing a death sentence upon someone who is considered an infidel or a blasphemer, whereas the term’s correct definition is significantly broader. Fatwā cover social and political issues and jihad. If a fatwā does not break new ground, then it is simply called a ruling.
So how does the Muslim/Islamic world deal with a former Muslim, who has stated that the Call to [Muslim] prayer “is one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset”, that he was raised a Muslim, registered as a Muslim in Indonesia, studied the Koran [Quran], both father and step-father were Muslim’s. Therfore without any contention or debate, that in fact Barack Hussein Obama II was in fact a Muslim, that has turned against the Islamic religion, embraced Christianity in the Church of Reverand Jeremiah Wright and the teachings of Black Liberation Thelogy, which is in contrast of the teachings of the Koran [Quran].
Here is the fatwa, proof that death “is a very normal part of Islamic law for apostasy and for every muslim its an honor to CLEAN the umma if Rifqa is dead”.
Obama describes Al-Azhar University this way: “For over a thousand years, Al-Azhar has stood as a beacon of Islamic learning, and for over a century, Cairo University has been a source of Egypt’s advancement”.
Legal opinion on apostasy by a Fatwa committee concerning the case of a man who converted to Christianity: “Since he left the Islam, he will be invited to express his regret. If he does not regret, he will be killed pertaining to rights and obligations of the Islamic law.” Popis Source: Orientalist Author: al-Azhr, the Egyptian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs This Fatawa describes how an Egyptian man turned apostate and the subsequent punishment prescribed for him by the Al-Azhr Fatawa council. The following translation is a rough guide:
In the Name of Allah the Most Beneficient the Most Merciful.
Council of Fatawa.
This question was presented by Mr. Ahmed Darwish and brought forward by [name obscured] who is of German nationality.
A man whose religion was Islam and his nationality is Egyptian married a German Christian and the couple agreed that the husband would join the Christian faith and doctrine.
1) What is the Islamic ruling in relation to this man? What are the punishments prescribed for this act?
2) Are his children considered Muslim or Christian?
All praise is to Allah, the Lord of the Universe and salutations on the leader of the righteous, our master Muhammed, his family and all of his companions.
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.
