Article summary: 

The punishment for Ridda [apostasy] from Islam was not stated clearly in the Holy Qur’an like the punishment for stealing. However, it was mentioned in two not-agreed-by-all Hadiths. The scholars did not consider such Hadiths while giving opinions, to the extent that Dr. Mahmoud Shaltout, the late Grand Sheikh of Al-Azhar said that blasphemy itself is not enough to merit a sentence of death. Dr. Ismael Al-Daftar, professor at the Faculty of Usul Al-Din [Islamic Theology] at Al-Azhar University has a different opinion.
