Islam is a one-way street. Non-Muslims can convert to Islam, but Muslims are not allowed to convert from Islam. All schools of sharia specify the death penalty for an adult male Muslim who leaves Islam, and the law imposes many other penalties on apostates. This book is written to raise awareness of Islam’s apostasy law and promote the case for its repeal. It looks at apostasy in the Islamic texts, the debate amongst Muslims about the law, and the treatment of converts from Islam today.
