fatwa1123.jpg

http://www.hoseini.org/Esteftaat-English.htm

I am curious about his proof/evidence for this claim, but alas I cannot read Farsi, and the English version of this particular book 'Modern Islam' is not available for download/viewing on his website.

Only the Farsi version is available for download [see download link***].

Could somebody please translate the section on Apostasy from Farsi to English for all of us to read?

Additionally, could the more learned individuals of this forum give their opinions/comments on his fatwa?

Many Thanks. JazakAllah Khair.

As soon as I saw the words "Modern Islam", I knew that there was a problem.

Nonsense, because for example the Qur’an is called Koran in Slavic languages. The form Koran was most predominant from the second half of the 18th century till the 1980s, when it has been superseded b

There’s no dominant belief uniformly agreed upon by all, that’s why you refer to your individual marja’. I also forgot to mention that there’s also a distinction between carrying out, or not, hud

But could you translate his explanation from his book?

Edit: I can't read Farsi language, so I can't even google translate it because I don't know where in the book it discusses apostasy.

I know in our religion, we should execute the ex-Muslim. I personally do not support it.

It’s mostly a fiqh I ruling but don’t see any Muslims country except KSA practices this ruling although it doesn’t has right to do it , it’s just right of infallible Imam (عليه السلام) even in Iran & Iraq nobody executes for this reason

Neither do I, forgive me if it may sound blasphemous but name one instance executing a kafir was beneficial in the 20th-21st century? @Ashvazdanghe

Everytime somebody gets executed in a Islamic country, the Islamophobic sentiments flare up. There is a correlation, brother.

Thanks your link doesn’t open ,anyway ideas of such persons that call themselves reformer or modernist in Islam always based on satisfying non Muslim based on giving their idea about matters that is not practical without presence of infallible Imam (عليه السلام) for enjoying non Muslim communities that will cause problem for Muslims & non Muslims because by their false idea people think can converts to Islam then leaves it easy without facing any consequences & make converting to Islam & doing apostasy again a cheap idea like ordering pizza that is completely wrong.

Practically we don't have such practice in Shia Islamic countries like as Iran &Iraq but it's doing by countries like as KSA but nobody blames them for that except few humanist group but they are always blaming Iran & Iraq for KSA barbaric acts in name of Islam & again and again I repeat it's just right of Infallible Imam to excutes apostate & all people that their apostasy proved just went to prison or exiled from Iran

It is logical in a theocracy to have religious treason, considering the structure and foundation of such a society is built on submitting to God alone and not one's own desires, and making a specific truth claim regarding God's laws, and of course in Islam this allows for legal pluralism... That being said, historically under Islamic sharia, killing of apostates has been rare. This could be due to a number of reasons, such as burden of proof, due process of law, and having the law being designed around deterrence rather than prosecution. The law has mainly been applied to prominent cases of political importance. Regardless, I do think that an apostate proselytizing and blaspheming against Islam is high treason and thus bad for the social cohesion of a theocratic society and a violation of the social contract. The fear is not converting others, the fear is angering others, creating a sense of disunity and lack of cooperation and comradery in society.

Do other Maraji hold the same position as Hosseini Nassab (ha) regarding apostates? If yes, could you list some of them? Thanks

People must know Islam accepts their idea even not recognizing good but after accepting Islam they must rules & can't turn their back to Islam & leave it like other religions

First He is not a verified Marja only some people gathered around him & said he is a Marja

Second : I said conclusion of fatwas rest of Marajis (ha) that all of them are against his idea ,he just extends rulling about women to men although rulling about apostate men is not applicable in non Muslim countries like as women but he just crates delusion by saying these words

You misunderstood me... I am saying that in an Islamic society, religious treason must exist, since you will anger Muslims and cause disunity among Muslims. Thus, the fear is not that the apostate will convert Muslims away from Islam (as is commonly misconstrued in the West), but the fear is regarding the degradation of the foundation, structure, unity and cooperation of the Islamic society.

Thanks for the clarification. I think he (h) is the only Marja who has such an opinion. As far as I remember (based on memory) mainstream reformists / modernists, such as Jannaati (h), Saanei (h), Tehrani (r) Fadlullah (r), Khoei (r), Sadr (r), do NOT hold this opinion. Anyone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

He is right in a sense. Only an infallible Imam can implement Hadd/punishment. Therefore, killing of apostates in present era is haram

Perhaps this is what is said in his book... but I can't read Farsi so I am unable to verify this.

I haven't read his bool and in general I haven't read much about this topic. What I do recall is a television debate where an academic Muslim scholar also argued against apostasy on the basis that during the lifetime of the Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) there are recorded instances of people leaving Islam and not being punished for it.

Wallahu a'lam

Salam could you give references about the fact that only Imams could execute apostates ? I thought that during occultation religious scholars had the power to implement huddud also.

This extends to someone who is not executed as well, like Salman Rushdie.

It's a conclusion from what happened under Islamic laws in Iran after revolution that nobody executed for apostasy until now even after confirming their apostasy

I am not really sure that most scholars agree with that. By the way if we don't apply huddud which punishments are we supposed to applicate?
