Apostasy- As Explained (Sort of) by Shaykh Abdullah Adhami
All Saints Episcopalian Church in Pasadena on December 15 will be Shaykh Abdullah Adhami. In the above video from a previous appearance, Adhami is seen answering a question from the audience on the subject of apostasy. His answer takes up almost the entire 12 minutes of the video. It is evasive as he refers to an instance when the Prophet Muhammad allowed a professed apostate to go free without harm. (That is a standard part of the answer.) Eventually, Adhami refers to the issue of private apostasy vs public apostasy, in which the apostate publicly speaks out against Islam. (I am paraphrasing).
