After a woman converted from Islam to Christianity, her relatives decided to kill her. When she confirmed that she believed Jesus would save her, they forced her to ingest deadly rat poison and left her to die. Much to their shock, what occurred shortly after made them realize that Allah’s wrath is nothing compared to Christ’s power.
Quran 4:89 states that only after non-Muslims convert to Islam should they be treated as equals. If they apostatize, the verse continues, they are to be hunted down and slaughtered for leaving Islam. It is an unforgivable sin that Sharia governments punish more than a millennium after the Islamic prophet Muhammad modeled it.
Morning Star News reports that after a Muslim woman converted to Christianity, her devout relatives concocted a sinister plan to “test” her new faith. Scoffing at the idea of salvation, the Muslim family of 24-year-old Sandra Summaya decided to honor kill her, as is prescribed in Islam. First, however, they wanted to make sure to crush her faith in Jesus Christ as she took her final breath. Unfortunately, they had no idea their plot would backfire.
On January 1, Summaya’s immediate family and several other enraged relatives gathered in Kamuge County, Uganda, to celebrate the New Year by murdering their apostate relative. Summaya’s paternal uncle stood up and mockingly read a passage from the Bible that stated how God would protect his people from harm. It was then that he and the other Muslim kin forced her to confess her faith and test it by ingesting rat poison.
“He said, ‘Do you believe that Issa [Jesus] is able to protect your from poison as written in the Bible?’ and I answered, ‘Yes,’” she recalled. “Immediately I was forced to take the poison to confirm my faith in the Bible, at around midnight. I could not deny the Bible, so I took the rat poison.”
As expected, Summaya became violently ill. Thinking they had defeated her belief and her God, they bound her to a tree and left her to die, according to the Gospel Herald.
“I started having severe stomach pains together with vomiting and cried for help,” she said. “I was taken away from the homestead to a nearby bush. I was tied with a rope to a tree and left to die.”
Incredibly, Summaya didn’t die, managing to survive until neighbors discovered her sobbing in pain. She was rushed to a hospital and is miraculously recovering from an attack that should’ve undoubtedly killed her.
“I found Summaya unconscious, and we rushed her to a Kamuge nursing home, where the doctor saved her life,” said the neighbor, whose name is withheld for security reasons.
“She will still be in the hospital for some few days as we monitor her situation,” said the nurse, who requested anonymity.
Summaya’s own brother had handed her over to the family for murder. She was ridiculed, threatened, and ultimately poisoned, but she never waivered in her faith. Now, her family must live with the humiliation of knowing they couldn’t kill her.
There are several scriptures in the Quran that order Muslims not only to kill unbelievers but also to refrain from making friends with them or even being peaceful with them. In fact, the only time it’s acceptable for Muslims to be kind to non-Muslims is when it can be used as a manipulative tactic to spread Islam.
As is the case with homosexuality, adultery, and blasphemy, Allah requires the execution of apostates. Muhammad modeled this by repeatedly declaring it to his followers.
Sahih Bukhari (84:57) – [In the words of] “Allah’s Apostle, ‘Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'”
As jihad expert Robert Spencer points out, revered Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi once declared that “if they had gotten rid of the apostasy punishment, Islam wouldn’t exist today.” Even the most devout, experienced Islamic scholars know that their religion is so oppressive, miserable, and inconsistent that it would’ve died out long ago if Muhammad himself hadn’t encouraged it’s spread through terror.
While God offers unconditional love, Allah repeatedly admits that he doesn’t love sinners. While the Bible teaches followers to “turn the other cheek” instead of retaliating, the Quran orders followers to slaughter and oppress. Without the sword, Islam wouldn’t be the second-largest religion on earth. Truly, Christianity is set apart, as millions continue to turn to Christ despite suffering the most persecution of any faith.
