Can an apostate be forgiven by Allah?
I'm asking because of the verse 4:137:

"Those who believe, then reject faith, then believe (again) and (again) reject faith, and go on increasing in unbelief,- Allah will not forgive them nor guide them nor guide them on the way."


Al Salam Aleikum

Repentance is accepted from anybody as long as it fulfills it's conditions, so yes an apostate can be forgiven even he/she repents before he/she dies.

  • maybe quoting 3:89 would be good, also commenting on verses before (such as 3:86), which is similar to the quoted verse in the question. – Kilise Aug 12 '17 at 16:54
