Ask an Alim

what is punishment for Blasphemy


Now due to recent issues in my country, a Non-Muslim woman was spared on blasphemy because due to lack of witness, My question is if someone talks against Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) and Allah should he really be killed? If yes why should we do that because our religion teaches to deal it with peace and love,I am Muslim


Salaam Alaykum,

The issue of apostasy is a complicated one and the cases are to be individually treated by a judge. In brief, there is no repentance from a person who is born in the faith and who then becomes a confirmed apostate. As for one who converts from another religion and then turns away from Islam and later repents his repentance is accepted.

Kind regards
