This research deals with an important issue that is the judgement on apostasy and the punishment of an apostate. The relation of apostasy to the principle of no compulsion is imposed  to embrace religion, This research is divided into a preface giving a definition of apostasy lexically and idiomatically and showing behaviors leading to profanity and apostasy. In addition to four topics as follows:

 

In the first topic the researcher shows a judgement of apostasy with the different views of old and contemporary scholars including evidences of each party and a discussion of these evidences and weighing of sayings. The second topic deals with an apostate’s belief and differing views of scholars on apostasy. The third topic is related to atonement of an apostate before execution of punishment  and the differing ideas of scholars.The fourth topic deals with  the authorized party of executing the punishment in places that are not governed by Islamic Shari’ah,where Muslim communities live in The West and in America.

 

The researcher reached a result that the apostate has two penalties one worldly that is to be killed with strong evidences taken from the Sunna and practices of the companions of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him). Another penalty is in the hereafter. There is no difference between a man’s apostasy and a woman’s apostasy both are the same. The person who orders the punishment is the ruler.
