    Yes, she is to be executed (by hanging) because she refuses to renounce her Christian faith. Sudan enforces Sharia law and they claim she was brought up as a Muslim because her father was a Muslim. Because she is a Christian, they have condemned her on the grounds of apostasy. BUT her father left her mother (who was a Christian) and she was brought up as a Christian. She was never a Muslim!

    Meriam Yehya Ibrahim gave birth to a baby girl in prison on Wednesday. Her 20 month old son is also in prison with her and he is suffering dreadfully. Meriam's husband is wheelchair bound and unable to take car of himself.

    The court said she would be allowed to nurse her baby for two years before the sentence is carried out. Her Christian marriage, in 2011, has been annulled and she has been sentenced to 100 lashes for adultery because the marriage is not considered valid under Islamic law.

    Oh, how merciful Allah is, to allow his worshippers to take a pregnant woman and her son, throw them in prison on trumped up charges, give her 100 lashes and then execute her after her baby is two years old. Oh, how that brings honour to Islam and to the name of Allah. Such a civilised, compassionate and humane religion.

    And don't think this is a one-off case. Wherever Sharia law is enforced, freedom of worship does not exist. Please check out the articles in the links below.

    No not because she is a Christian, it is because they are accusing her of apostasy for not converting to Islam. They claim that she was a Muslim because here father was despite the fact that she was raised as a Christian by here Christian mother in Ethiopia, not Sudan. So she is not being killed because she is a Christian it is because she refuses to become a Muslim, she could have been any or no religion.

    It might be but we can't say that its true. Talking about Sudan and the Islamic followers it might not be true people just think and make a huge discussion for these things.

    First, she was not a Muslim. She has consistently stated she has always been a christian. Therefore, the claim of apostasy is without merit.

    Second, this is not Islamic law. Death for apostasy is Sudanese law. Its a law specific to that country and not Islam.

    Third, this actually goes against islam and as such, is not Islamic. The Quran explicitly states in Surat Al-Baqarah 256 "there shall be no compulsion in the religion".

    Fourth, if she was a muslim, and she is not, this certainly did not keep her in the folds of Islam. IT is totally impractical to use fear of death to keep people in a faith. Fear causes people to run away from things.

    Fifth, She won her appeal, but they have detained her. They detained her at the airport for unknown reasons. She was detained while leaving the Sudan to come here to the USA. She has a U.S. visa, plane tickets, etc. This is, therefore, an obvious violation of international law.

    Have you only just heard of this?

    It's sick I know.

    EDIT: She's recently given birth and I think she has (I think) 18 months to look after her new baby girl before she is executed.

    she was brought up by her mother who is a christian, yet they are saying she is muslim because of her fathers religion who has had no contact with her. and if God were to say what God thinks of that religion they would do the same to God

    They are like christians that way. They make claims of peace and tranquility, while they perpetrate crimes against humanity.

    That is just religion for you. It wouldn't work without all the hate.

    Hate and fear is what drives religion, and dishonest clergy.

    All these anti-Christians answering are disgusting such as people like Willbewill.

    You talk about how a Christian is being treated like sh.it and they point out things that happened hundreds of years ago and finger point. They don't just say the Muslim is wrong nope they have to finger point.

    Also Muslims bombing your house is 7 out of ten.

    Anyways I just wonder how these anti-Christians would feel if you said something like this for an example,"An Atheist is being killed" but then people finger point and mention someone like Stalin as if we're blaming that individual for another. (Like they're doing.) Don't think it would fly with them that much.

    Like honestly how would these Atheists feel if we told them after hearing one of there people is going to be executed and we said something like this,"they're just doing what Stalin did and other stuff like that." I don't think they would like it so much if we blamed that individual for what someone like Stalin did.

    If she was killed for being a Christian, she is now with God experiencing nothing but love, peace and happiness. God is so good. Those idiots will reap what they sow. I'm happy she is with the Lord now if this is true and she was killed...
