The cost of leaving or criticising Islam

Ishaq:368 "We carried his head back to Muhammad during the night, saluted the Prophet as he stood praying, and cast Ashraf's head before his feet. The Prophet praised Allah that the poet had been slain, and complimented us on the good work we had done in Allah's Cause. Our attack upon Allah's enemy cast terror among the Jews, and there was no Jew in Medina who did not fear for his life.

A recent survey in the UK found that almost 40% of young Muslims favour killing ex-Muslims who convert to another religion and those who are perceived as insulting Islam . The thousands of converts from Islam are living in fear of their lives and are constantly harrassed by their families and other members of their community and many have also been physically attacked. This inspite that many Muslims are working 24/7 to convert others to Islam, what double standards!

Punishing critics of Islam and those who convert from Islam is not the ideology of a few fanatics but it is the law in the quran and the hadiths, scrolling down the pages you will find a small example of the numerous verses that sanctions it. Also at the end of the page you can see many articles and videos that illustrate the horrendous persecution and murder endured by converts from Islam and critics of Islam.

Apostasy in islam does not only involve criticism or leaving islam, many other minor transgressions can carry the death penalty, you can read about it by clicking here.

the slightest criticism of Islam leads to a death sentence in muslim countries

It is estimated that in Iran hundred of thousands are leaving Islam inspite of the fact that the state hangs onverts, read article here. Inspite of all persecution millions of people are leaving Islam every year, most Muslims tell you that Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world, the truth is that at this rate Islam is imploding from within and inspite of the fast birth rate it could dwindle to a few millions in the next few years. Let the facts speak for themselves.

People in Islam have a high birth rate due to lack of birth control so in this sense Islam is growing. Also for many years in the West Muslim preachers have been extremely active in trying to convert people and at first they have encountered some measure of success in convincing some that Islam is a religion of peace and that the whole world is persecuting Islam hence Muslims must fight back. However most have these converts within a short period of time realise that Islam is far from being a religion of peace and that conflict throughout history has been initiated by Islam. They also become disillusioned by the violence of their scriptures like the quran and the hadiths.

Islam as a religion and political ideology in reality is imploding!

In this speech an Imam is alarmed by the fact that 75% of Muslim converts within a short period of time leave Islam. If an Imam admits to 75% probably the figure is even higher than that.

click here to hear a radio speech by an Islamic scholar who says that 75% of those who convert to Islam leave it soon after, if an Imam admits to75% probably the real number is more like 80 to 90%, the speaker is Ilyas Ba-Yunus, PhD, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, State University of New York at Courtland.

video by Al Jazeera the mouthpiece of Islam admiting that 6,000,000 African Muslims leave Islam every year

2,000,000 russians have left islam

huge exodus from islam

millions leaving islam

At the bottom of this page there will be links to many videos and articles that show how millions are leaving Islam every year and the persecution they suffer.

First let us see how many verses in the Quran and the hadiths clearly promote the death and hatred of converts and desbilievers and how Sharia scholars
clearly promote death for converts. This in spite of the fact that Muslims are on a 24/7 campaign to convert as many people as possible to Islam and in most cities in the West you can see them on street corners and parks where people congragate preaching Islam along with Islamic politics and jihad. Under the links to verses from the Quran and the wars of Muhammad you will also find tons of other verses condemning those who leave or oppose Islam.

The verses - killing those who leave islam, down the page another section will give numerous instances where critics were murdered under the orders of muhammad

They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): so take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (from what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks. quran 4:89

quran [4:115] As for him who opposes the messenger, after the guidance has been pointed out to him, and follows other than the believers' way, we will direct him in the direction he has chosen, and commit him to Hell; what a miserable destiny!
Verily, those who have turned back (have apostated) as disbelievers after the guidance has been manifested to them,

Shaitân (Satan) has beautified for them (their false hopes) and prolonged their term (age). 47:25

Then how (will it be) when the angels will take their souls at death, smiting their faces and their backs? 47:27

quran 88:21 But whoever turns back and disbelieves ( apostates ),

88.024 Allah will punish him with a mighty Punishment,

4:88 What is the matter with you, then, that you have become two parties about the hypocrites, while Allah has made them return (to unbelief) for what they have earned? Do you wish to guide him whom Allah has caused to err? And whomsoever Allah causes to err, you shall by no means find a way for him.

4:89 They desire that you should disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so that you might be (all) alike; therefore take not from among them friends until they fly (their homes) in Allah's way; but if they turn back, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and take not from among them a friend or a helper. In verse 4:88 allah says that he causes people to disbilieve and then in 4:89 he orders muslims to kill those who have dibilieved!

Bukhari (52:260) - "...The Prophet said, 'If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.' "
Bukhari (89:271) - A man who embraces Islam, then reverts to Judaism is to be killed according to "the verdict of Allah and his apostle."

"Any one who, after accepting faith in Allah, utters Unbelief, except under compulsion, his heart remaining firm in Faith - but such as open their breast to Unbelief, on them is Wrath from Allah, and theirs will be a dreadful Penalty." Surah 16: 106

Bukhari (84:58) - "There was a fettered man beside Abu Muisa. Mu'adh asked, 'Who is this (man)?' Abu Muisa said, 'He was a Jew and became a Muslim and then reverted back to Judaism.' Then Abu Muisa requested Mu'adh to sit down but Mu'adh said, 'I will not sit down till he has been killed. This is the judgment of Allah and His Apostle (for such cases) and repeated it thrice.' Then Abu Musa ordered that the man be killed, and he was killed. Abu Musa added, 'Then we discussed the night prayers'"

Bukhari (84:64-65) - "Allah's Apostle: 'During the last days there will appear some young foolish people who will say the best words but their faith will not go beyond their throats (i.e. they will have no faith) and will go out from (leave) their religion as an arrow goes out of the game. So, wherever you find them, kill them, for whoever kills them shall have reward on the Day of Resurrection.'"

" No Muslim should be killed for killing a Kafir" (infidel). Bukhari Vol. 9:50

Killing the critics

Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 270: Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah: The Prophet said, "Who is ready to kill Ka'b bin Al-Ashraf who has really hurt Allah and His Apostle?" Muhammad bin Maslama said, "O Allah's Apostle! Do you like me to kill him?" He replied in the affirmative. So, Muhammad bin Maslama went to him (i.e. Ka'b) and said, "This person (i.e. the Prophet) has put us to task and asked us for charity." Ka'b replied, "By Allah, you will get tired of him." Muhammad said to him, "We have followed him, so we dislike to leave him till we see the end of his affair." Muhammad bin Maslama went on talking to him in this way till he got the chance to kill him. You can read the whole story in detail here

Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 271: Narrated Jabir:
The Prophet said, "Who is ready to kill Ka'b bin Ashraf (i.e. a Jew)." Muhammad bin Maslama replied, "Do you like me to kill him?" The Prophet replied in the affirmative. Muhammad bin Maslama said, "Then allow me to say what I like." The Prophet replied, "I do (i.e. allow you)."

Bukhari Volume 5, book 59, Hadee(th) number 369 of SaHeeH bu(kh)aaree: Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah: Allah’s Apostle said, “Who is willing to kill Ka’b bin Al-Ashraf who has hurt Allah and His Apostle?” Thereupon Muhammad bin Maslama got up saying, “O Allah’s Apostle! Would you like that I kill him?” The Prophet said, “Yes,” Muhammad bin Maslama said, “Then allow me to say a [false] thing [i.e. to deceive Ka'b bin Al−Ashraf]. “The Prophet said, “You may say it.”

Ishaq:368 "We carried his head back to Muhammad during the night, saluted the Prophet as he stood praying, and cast Ashraf's head before his feet. The Prophet praised Allah that the poet had been slain, and complimented us on the good work we had done in Allah's Cause. Our attack upon Allah's enemy cast terror among the Jews, and there was no Jew in Medina who did not fear for his life.

Uqba mocked Muhammad in Mecca and wrote derogatory verses about him. He too was captured during the Battle of Badr, and Muhammad ordered him to be executed. "But who will look after my children, O Muhammad?" Uqba cried with anguish. "Hell," retorted the prophet coldly. Then the sword of one of his followers cut through Uqba’s neck.
Source: Bukhari, vol. 4, no. 2934; Muslim, vol. 3, nos. 4422, 4424; Ibn Ishaq, p. 308 / 458. Bukhari and Muslim are reliable collectors and editors of the hadith (words and deeds of Muhammad outside of the Quran). These three passages from the hadith depict Muhammad calling on Allah for revenge on this poet.

The Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) ordered a person to be executed who had committed the act of insulting the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) and became an apostate. At that time he was wrapped in the cover of the Ka�ba. It has been narrated by Hazrat Anas bin Malik (radi Allahu anhuma) that the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) was present at Makkah on the day of the conquest of Makkah when someone reported that Ibn Hanzal (the insulter of the Holy Prophet, sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) was wrapped in the cover of the Ka�ba. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) ordered him to be executed. (Bukhari, Vol. 1, pg. 249) Tons of other stories from the holy scriptures where Muhammad ordered critics to be executed, now you know why muslims kill critics.

another link about critics killed by muhammad

The scribes of Muhammad were 42 in number. `Abdallah Ibn Sarh al-`Amiri was one of them, and he was the first Quraishite among those who wrote in Mecca before he turned away from Islam. He started saying, "I used to direct Muhammad wherever I willed. He would dictate to me 'Most High, All-Wise', and I would write down 'All-Wise' only. Then he would say, 'Yes it is all the same'. On a certain occasion he said, 'Write such and such', but I wrote 'Write' only, and he said, 'Write whatever you like.'" So when this scribe exposed Muhammad, he wrote in the Qur'an, "And who does greater evil than he who forges against God a lie, or says, 'To me it has been revealed', when naught has been revealed to him." So on the day Muhammad conquered Mecca, he commanded his scribe to be killed. But the scribe fled to `Uthman Ibn `Affan, because `Uthman was his foster brother (his mother suckled `Uthman). `Uthman, therefore, kept him away from Muhammad. After the people calmed down, `Uthman brought the scribe to Muhammad and sought protection for him. Muhammad kept silent for a long time, after which he said yes. When `Uthman had left, Muhammad said "I only kept silent so that you (the people) should kill him."[2] Al-Sira by al-'Iraqi

Mahommed did not tolerate criticism this is why critics of Islam even to this day are murdered'

Asma bint Marwan, had spoken critically of Muhammad, telling her tribe to be wary of him. She said: "'You obey a stranger who encourages you to murder for booty. You are greedy men. Is there no honor among you?' Upon hearing those lines Muhammad said,'Will no one rid me of this woman?' Umayr, a zealous Muslim, decided to execute the Prophet's wishes. That very night he crept into the writer's home while she lay sleeping surrounded by her young children. There was one at her breast. Umayr removed the suckling babe and then plunged his sword into the poet. The next morning in the mosque, Muhammad, who was aware of the assassination, said,'You have helped Allah and His Apostle.' Umayr said,'She had five sons; should I feel guilty?''No,' the Prophet answered.'Killing her was as meaningless as two goats butting heads.'" (Ibn Ishaq, pp. 675-76 / 995-96.)

all the major schools of islamic jurisprudence believe that the punishment for apostasy is death

A supposedly critic of muhammad is killed purely on hearsay, no enquiry and no trial and his belongings are distributed amongst his killers

Volume 4, Book 53, Number 369: Narrated 'Abdur-Rahman bin 'Auf:
While I was standing in the row on the day (of the battle) of Badr, I looked to my right and my left and saw two young Ansari boys, and I wished I had been stronger than they. One of them called my attention saying, "O Uncle! Do you know Abu Jahl?" I said, "Yes, What do you want from him, O my nephew?" He said, "I have been informed that he abuses Allah's Apostle. By Him in Whose Hands my life is, if I should see him, then my body will not leave his body till either of us meet his fate." I was astonished at that talk. Then the other boy called my attention saying the same as the other had said. After a while I saw Abu Jahl walking amongst the people. I said (to the boys), "Look! This is the man you asked me about." So, both of them attacked him with their swords and struck him to death and returned to Allah'S Apostle to inform him of that. Allah's Apostle asked, "Which of you has killed him?" Each of them said, "I Have killed him." Allah's Apostle asked, "Have you cleaned your swords?" They said, "No. " He then looked at their swords and said, "No doubt, you both have killed him and the spoils of the deceased will be given to Muadh bin Amr bin Al-Jamuh." The two boys were Muadh bin 'Afra and Muadh bin Amr bin Al-Jamuh.


Burning, was a common punishment against apostates ( converts ) and unbelievers and it had been sanctioned in the quran

Allah's favourite punishment is burning the kuffar alive.

Bukhari:V4B52N260 "Ali burnt some apostates publicly'

quran 3.181. 8.50, 17.97 : The penalty for disbelievers is Scorching Fire!

Do not molest the prophet or else! 9.061 Among them are men who molest the Prophet and say, "He is (all) ear." Say, "He listens to what is best for you: he believes in Allah, has faith in the Believers, and is a Mercy to those of you who believe." But those who molest the Messenger will have a grievous penalty.
