Sudan: Death Penalty for Christian Woman

This is a story that needs further investigation. This woman who is reported to have been raised as a Christian is facing the death penalty for 'leaving Islam'. Of course one would think the authorities need to establish if this lady was ever a Muslim as the report says she was raised a Muslim. Allah knows best what the ruling is and what her situation was and is.

I pray the Sudanese scholars and authorities look into this matter. I pray this lady and her husband convert to Islam. Ameen

For any Christian Islamophobes out there, remember that according to Christian theology Jesus ordered the killing of apostateswho preach the worship of other gods and John Calvin agreed with killing heretics and blasphemers

JUBA, South Sudan, April 28, 2014 (Morning Star News) – A pregnant woman in Khartoum, Sudan raised as a Christian faces the death penalty for “leaving Islam” because her father was Muslim, sources said.

Meriam Yahia Ibrahim, 27, and her Christian husband also have a toddler son. As marriage to a Christian man is prohibited for a Muslim woman in Sudan, Ibrahim also could be given 100 lashes for “adultery,” the sources said. If convicted of “apostasy” and “adultery,” the whipping and execution would be administered soon after giving birth to her second child, due next month, according to a rights worker for Justice Center Sudan in Khartoum.

“We are fighting for Meriam’s life, freedom, and fair treatment – according to the law, if she had been a Muslim she should be killed soon after she gives birth to her child,” said the rights worker, whose identity was withheld for security reasons.

Married to a South Sudanese Christian who obtained U.S. citizenship several years ago, Ibrahim’s nightmare has included denial of bail, insufficient medical care for both her and her unborn child, beatings in prison and a U.S. Embassy that has offered little help, sources said.

“Meriam needs treatment every month to keep the unborn baby still in the mother’s womb, but no medical help has been allowed,” her husband, Daniel Wani, reported to Justice Center Sudan. “They are denying my wife her rights to fair treatment and my rights to visit and see my son.”

Christians having dreams and converting to Islam:

Invitation to Islam

Jesus taught people to do the Will of God (according to Mark 3:35) in order to become his brothers, mothers or sisters. A Muslim means one who submits to the Will of God. Do you want to become a brother of Jesus? If yes, become a Muslim. Now is the time.
