Apostasy and Freedom of Religion in Islam by Quran



What does Quran says about Apostasy? What is the punishment for Apostasy in Islam? Does Islam allow the freedom of religion? Is there any punishment for the person who changed his/her religion? This post is going to cover all of you questions regarding to Freedom of Religion and Apostasy in Islam by Quran.

It is fact that Islam is most misunderstood religion of the world. One of the reason behind the fact is “anti Islamic websites” who are more in numbers than Islamic website. Those anti websites provide fake information, half verses of Quran and share the information without any base. The purpose of such websites are to make people hate Islam and its teaching.

Without any commentary and putting my addition words to explain the verse of Quran. I am going to share some verse from Quran which are going to prove that there is no punishment of apostasy in Islam because religion is a person’s own concern which belong to only Allah and only Allah can punishment or reward for the acts which are wholly done for Him.

There is no Compulsion in Religion:

There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing. – Quran 2:256

And had your Lord willed, those on earth would have believed – all of them entirely. Then, [O Muhammad], would you compel the people in order that they become believers? – Quran 10:99
