Reading about Islam I found this in Wikipedia

Leaving Islam is a sin and a religious crime. Once any man or woman is officially classified as Muslim, because of birth or religious conversion, he or she will be subject to the death penalty if he or she becomes an apostate, that is, abandons his or her faith in Islam in order to become an atheist, agnostic or to convert to another religion. Before executing the death penalty, sharia demands that the individual be offered one chance to return to Islam.


is it true that if you join Islam you can't leave it anymore or you face death penalty?

  • This is only in Islamic states with Penalty death, but now there are one Islamic state I guess? But in Muslim countries, it no longer happens this. This punishment is up to God. He is the one that has the right to punish, not us.
