The penalty for apostasy[change | change source]

Sharia law does not allow Muslims to leave Islam, in order to become atheist or convert to other religions. This is strictly forbidden, and is called apostasy. In Muslimtheology, apostasy is a crime against God. The punishment for apostasy is death for Muslim male apostates. The major schools of sharia law differ in their punishment for female apostates: Maliki, Shafi’i and Hanbali sharia requires execution of female apostates, while Hanafi and Jafari sharia requires arrest, solitary confinement and punishment till she recants and returns to Islam.[21]  http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sharia_law#The_penalty_for_apostasy

  • Capital punishments – by beheading / crucifixion (for apostasy, for highway robbery with homicide), by stoning (for illicit sex by a married offender)
  • Amputation of hands or feet (for theft and highway robbery without homicide)
  • Flogging, between 40 to 100 strokes (for sex by unmarried offender, drinking alcohol, gambling, and accusing someone of illicit sex but failing to present Muslim witnesses of the crime)  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hudud#Punishments

Theft (stealing) is a hudud crime in sharia, with a fixed punishment. The punishment is amputating (cutting off) the hands or feet.
