Abu Usamah at-Thahabi – Apostasy

Posted on April 29, 2013


Full clip of Abu Usamah on apostasy at Green Lane Masjid (part of clip used in Undercover Mosque).

“And then finally the hadith ‘baddala deenahu, faqtuhulu’, ‘Whoever changes his religion then kill him.’ ‘Whoever changes his religion then kill him’. That’s not talking about the Yahudi [Jew] who changes his religion from Yahudia [Judaism] to Nasrani [Christianity]. It’s not talking about the Christian who changes his religion from Christianity to Judaism. It’s not talking about the Magian [Zoroastrian] who changes his religion from a Magian to being a person who doesn’t believe in Allah at all. This is talking about the Muslim man or woman who changes their religion from Islam to anything else, kill them in the Islamic state because he has made a form of shirk and that he has legislated for himself what Allah (swt) said was haram. And it’s haram for him to change his religion. So the Muslim who changes his religion, the penalty for that is death because he said it was halal.”
