The Law of Apostasy in Islam by Samuel Zwemer

“The idea of personal liberty – freedom of conscience – has no place in Moslem law, whether religious or civil… The law of apostasy is known to all Moslems from their youth up, if not in its detail of legal penalties, yet in its power of producing an attitude bitterly hostile toward converts to Christianity. What else could such a law produce except a fanatic attitude toward all who are not Moslems?
