>>American Thinker: The Anachronism of Apostasy
Posted February 14, 2010on:
This is a good article on just what Islam is all about. The article is short yet summarizes well and in plain language just what it means to be a Muslim and what to expect if one should leave that particular religion.
Islam is extremely possessive of its subjects. It is a religion that admits anyone into its fold by the person simply uttering a one-sentence statement of faith, shahada: “I bear witness that there is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is Allah’s messenger.” By so saying, one becomes Muslim for life and surrenders the right to ever leave it. Anyone who leaves the Islamic fold is murtad (revert), or an apostate.
