However, what if the followers of Islam themselves leave their religion? Is religious freedom still sustainable? Or are there prohibitions and punishment for those who leave Islam?

Thus, it will be revealed how the attitude of the Prophet Muhammad and his companions towards apostates. So, the stigma of Islam which is accused of being the religion of murderous will be explored and answered contextually.
