In his weekly fatwa session, which he uploads to his YouTube channel, Kuwaiti cleric Othman Al-Khamis said that apostates must be killed.  In a video uploaded on January 9, 2019, Sheikh Al-Khamis said that apostasy is tantamount to scorning Islam. In an October 14, 2015 video, Sheikh Al-Khamis said that only infidels may be enslaved, adding that people who do not worship Allah must convert to Islam, pay the jizya poll tax, be forced into slavery, or be fought against and killed. He urged people to not be ashamed of their religion and not to feel sorry for the apostates Al-Khamis added that people should not feel sorry for infidels who are punished for refusing to obey Allah.

Following are excerpts:

Sheikh Othman Al-Khamis, on January 9, 2019: Killing an apostate is not done in order to make him a Muslim [again]. Apostates are committing a crime, just like adulterers. If an adulterer is married, he is stoned. If he is not married, he is flogged. If the conditions for chopping off the hand of a thief apply, then the hands of thieves are chopped off. Murderers are killed. All these are punishments for acts committed by these people. The same is true for apostasy. A person who commits apostasy is killed. However, he is left [unharmed] if her repents.


Such a person is punished because apostasy is tantamount to scorning Islam, and he is therefore punished as if he cursed the Prophet Muhammad or Allah. This is why an apostate is killed. It’s not that we’re trying to force Islam upon him. Islam does not need or want mercenaries. We don’t say: “turn Muslim or we will slaughter you.”


On October 14, 2015: Only infidels may be enslaved. Muslims may not be enslaved. If there is fighting between Muslims because of fitna or for any other reason… Muslims must not be enslaved. Only infidels may be enslaved.


I ask people not to be ashamed of their religion and to refrain from saying: “No, this was only in the past, Islam does not call for this…” No! Be firm in your religion, proclaim it, and say: “Yes, this is my religion!” Those who do not want to worship Allah should be enslaved, forced to pay the jizya poll tax, convert to Islam, or fought against. These are the four options, and there is no fifth option. First, a person is called to convert to Islam: “Worship Allah! Allah created you in order for you to worship Him.” If he says: “I don’t want to worship Allah,” we say to him: “If you live on Allah’s land but do not worship Him, you have to pay the jizya.” But if he says: “I will not pay the jizya!”… If he refuses to either worship Allah or pay the jizya, we say to him: “We have no choice but to fight you.” So we fight him for that reason. If we kill him, he goes to the Hellfire, and if we capture him, he becomes a slave. In such a case, he is forced into slavery. Since he refused to willfully become a respected slave [of Allah], he shall become a despicable slave against his will. This is the way things go with people who do not worship Allah. Don’t feel sorry for them. They are infidels who refuse to worship Allah. They refuse to obey Allah. They are hostile toward Allah and they curse Him. People should not be blinded by mercy towards Allah’s enemies. They are aggressors. It is tantamount to showing mercy to a criminal who kills people, robs them of their money, violates the honor of their women, and hurts them… And then someone comes along saying: “True, he killed five or six people, but we must be forgiving.” No. It is wrong to forgive such a person.

  1. In the Second Surah of the Quran it talks about killing “infedels” and “oppressors”. However, it also states to fight only until the oppression ceases. Then forgiveness is to be extended and fighting is to cease.

  2. I will not convert. I may well die, but there will be many dead towel heads prior to my passing. I don’t think the muslims can sustain losses of 100 to 1 very long.

  3. Islam is a Cancer, as thus it must be Eradicated, World Wide ASAP!
    Islam is NOT a religion, maybe a cult at most, but more of a Political system then a Religion
    Since the start of islam, 270 million People have been killed by muslims worldwide, it is not a religion of peace.
    To back up my facts watch this video and see for yourself –

      • Pray to Him first to guide you to the truth. In one of His commandments which He gave to Moses, He said thou shall not kill. Which simply means He has not committed any life into our hand to terminate. And the Lord Jesus said “he who kill by the sword shall die by the sword”. This is the law of retributive justice. Most muslims violate this simple law, even by preaching such.
        Listen carefully all ye with an heart of blood lust repent for the kingdom of heaven is near and the day of judgement is fast approaching when you shall answer for all your deeds.

  4. Back in the day I saw a child/adolescent psychiatrist whose husband was from Kuwait.
    During our last meeting one of the things she discussed with me was that there will be times in your life when other people make decisions for you that you don’t like, and mentioned that her boss did that at times, and even her husband. It struck me as odd that her husband would make decisions for her that she didn’t like, because she was such a strong, educated, and independent woman. But then again, her hubby was from Kuwait, so…

  5. When will we put a stop to this, yes he’s from Kuwait but that is the true doctrine of the Muslim faith.. as for thé U.S. I see where Brooklyn mosque have started a ‘ Muslim Community Patrol’ they have a couple of cars that look very much like Police Cars.

  6. it’s so obvious, we all know that Islam is a religion of war, Muhammed killed, so who wouldn’t kill, There are thousands of people being killed or forced into slavery be cos of their faith and we keep hearing that Islam is a religion of peace..May God have mercy. If everyone decides to kill or force people into slavery the world would go into oblivion.

  7. The twelve deciples of Christ Jesus do you know what happened to them, they lay down them self to be killed because of the gospel of Christ Jesus, the word f God says who soever love his soul he will surely lost it and who soever hate his soul to the point of death because of Christ Jesus shall see it, don’t think you can use death to terrorise anybody, I belief that anybody that is fighting because of religion they are realy blind and they are not in the light of God they are in the darkness. Devil is against christ Jesus, in the heaven devil was trying to lift up his throne more than God throne, when God sees all the devil plan he send devil away from heaven down to earth’s, now for everybody to gain eternal life, that is why God sent christ to the world so that we can be delivered from devil and hell fire, do you know the meaning of holiness? It means obeying God, by doing what God says:1 thou shall not kill.2 thou shall not still l.3 thou shall not committed vornication.4 thou shall not commit adultery e.t.c. now if you are against Christ Jesus, and you have it in your mind that by killing, for the sake of religion you can get to heaven, you are doing wrong thing, it was devil that sat down in your heart. Devil like you when you are killing somebody and shielding innocent blood, but the wrath of God is over anybody that is killing. What they ask you to do is to accept jesus as your Lord and your saviour, nobody is calling you to become Christian, or Muslim just believed That christ Jesus is the son of God, because he died for you and I.

  8. “Kuwaiti cleric Othman Al-Khamis said that apostates must be killed.” OK, we must believe him! That is what the koran commands.
    Then it is clear we must form a Crusade against islam and purge it from earth! Death to islam! Pray that the Lord will destroy mecca and the kabbah
    The American-American

  9. 47:4 Behead and slaughter the unbelievers; take others captive
    “When you meet the unbelievers, smite their necks, then, when you have made wide slaughter among them, tie fast the bonds; then set them free, either by grace or ransom, till the war lays down its loads. So it shall be; and if Allah had willed, He would have avenged Himself upon them; but that He may try some of you by means of others. And those who are slain in the way of Allah, He will send them to Paradise.

    Islam is the most dangerous thing that the world has ever faced, Stalin and Hitler were insignificant compared to the engulfing and mendacious tentacles of Islam

    Islamic culture is based on shame and dishonor, and a high illiteracy rate to impede progress. Their greatness will come when all vestiges of advanced societies are destroyed.

  10. Untill islam in is world there is no peace……destroy completely islam then only there is Pease will come… is true…..muslims are worms we must crush them…

  11. That sheikh from Kuwait is a perfect example of stupidity.
    He actually says ‘We don’t want mercenaries in Islam.
    if you leave Islam that is a crime and we will kill you.
    If you don’t convert or pay the jizya, we will fight you
    and enslave you or kill you.’

    What part of the word Force doesn’t this Stupe understand?

If sharia keeps spreading, you will not only be silenced by the media and big technology, you will be jailed - or worse. Speak while you can!
