He had to be punished for apostasy, when he became a Christian. But when he has accepted Islam again, no one can lay a hand on him.

Sincere Tawba (repentance) is sufficient for one to be forgiven for apostasy. Repeated pleading, crying, begging; while on the prayer mat, will help a lot.

There you have it - if that's what you're asking. :unsure:

Please note that there are two types of apostates: murtad fitri and murtad milli. The fist means that one has been born a Muslim. The second that one has converted to Islam. In the first case, if someone who has been born a Muslim OPENLY AND FREELY REJECTS the Religion of Islam (which means he considers the Holy Prophet to be liar astagfirullah) then he has to be killed IRRESPECTIVE of whether he repents or not. Maybe Allah will accept his repentance but he still has to be punished in this world. But in the second case you have to give him a chance to repent. If he repents then he is forgiven, if not, then he has to be killed. The rulling differs for the women although.
