Mr Obama’s middle name is Hussein which is a Muslim name. Since his stepfather was an Indonesian Muslim, it is natural for the son to adopt the religion of the father (especially in Islam). Adopting something from your father does not mean you have to believe in it. However, in Islam it is not the case. If at any time in one’s life were to ever be a Muslim – you are a Muslim.

Was Obama ever a Muslim? He says he is a “Christian” but does that mean he has denied and recant from being a Muslim? If he was, he is an apostate of Islam. The consequences of apostasy is severe in Islam. I hope that this issue will get the necessary coverage so that the issue of apostasy in Islam will be exposed.

Daniel Pipes wrote an interesting article regarding Obama’s Islam,

  • “Interviews with dozens of former classmates, teachers, neighbors and friends show that Obama was not a regular practicing Muslim when he was in Indonesia” – implying he was an irregularly practicing Muslim.
  • “Obama occasionally followed his stepfather to the mosque for Friday prayers, a few neighbors said” – confirming that he did pray in the mosque.
  • “Obama’s 3rd-grade teacher at the Catholic school, who lived near the family [said that] ‘Rarely, Barry went to the mosque with Lolo'” – confirming that Obama attended mosque services.

A few verses from the Hadith on apostasy in Islam,

  • Muslim 623 The Prophet said: “It is not permissible to take the life of a Muslim except in one of the three cases: the married adulterer, a life for a life (if the person is Muslim), and the deserter of Islam.”
  • Bukhari 9:89:271 A man embraced Islam and then reverted back to Judaism Mu’adh said: “I will not sit down unless you kill him as it is the verdict of Allah and His Apostle”
