This article analyzes the
apologetic claim that [[The Holy Qur'an: Al-Baqara (The Heifer)|Surah al-Baqara]] (the Heifer) advocates freedom of and from religion.
The wisdom behind this Law of prescribing corporal punishment for apostasy in Islam is only to manifest the value and worth of the declaration of ‘shahaadah’ which enables one to enter Islam, and the severity of the crime of becoming an apostate in the Sight of Allah, Islamic Law, and the believers.; for unless and until one, of his own free will and without any coercion or force, himself declares his apostasy in a Shariah Court of a righteous Islamic State, the prescribed punishment of apostasy cannot be implemented.}}
