Sheharyar-ShaikhSheharyar Shaikh

Sheharyar Shaikh serves since 2015 as the Imam of the Islamic Society of Kingston, Ontario. He served as the President of North American Muslim Foundation and the Imam of Masjid Qurtabah in Scarborough, Ont. In recent years, he also took part in Dawah (introducing Islam to disbelievers) with activists affiliated with the Islamic booth at Toronto’s Dundas Square.

In 2013 Sheharyar Shaikh delivered a sermon entitled “There Is No Compulsion In Islam”. The following are  excerpts from a sermon which was delivered in English in 2013 (29:47-31:46):

There is an extensive topic on compulsion in religion (اكراه في الدين). I especially want to look at one aspect – the punishment for apostasy.

When a person in an Islamic State apostasies, leaves religion, let Allah be a witness that I am telling the truth, that the punishment for apostasy is death.

Anybody telling you anything else
