What is the ruling on those who join other religions from Islam? The Grand Ayatollah Hakim’s Fatwa

SHAFAQNA – The Grand Ayatollah Seyyed Mohammad Saeed Hakim answered questions about joining other religions from Islam.

Question: What is your Fatwa regarding those who join other religions from Islam? In your opinion, do they deserve to be punished? If so, what kind of punishment?

The Grand Ayatollah Hakim: There is no doubt that they deserve to be punished severely in the hereafter. In Ayah 257 of Surah Al-Baqarah, Allah (SWT) said: “Those who reject faith, their masters are the evil ones whom they will lead them from light into the depth of darkness. They will be companions of fire, to dwell therein for ever.” Punishment in this world is not our duty.
