- about death of someone who converts

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by American - Muslim (United States), Nov 5, 2008 at 12:23

I don't know where you got your Islamic teachings - but just because someone who was born Muslim converts, does not mean he must be killed according to Islamic Law. In the Quran, it clearly states "there is no coercion in religion" (la ikraha bil deen). You can not compel someone to be Muslim according to Islamic shariah and humans are born free and are accountable for their deeds only to GOD ALMIGHTY.
