    Assalamualaikum

    Today everyone says that there is consensus on death penalty of apostate. But i have read in an article that Imam Al Awzai,Ibrahim Nakhi,Sufyan Thawri,Imam Sarakhsi(may Allah bless them all) don’t accept this penalty.(and every person of knowledge know the level of the mentioned personalities).But i wasn’t satisfied with that article much so i wanted to ask if any of you know the good references of these opinions (if exist)?

    Following are some good books that discuss the debate on apostasy from the historical perspective along with references to the opposing opinions of various classical scholars on the topic:

    1. Murder in the Name of Allah by Hazrat Mizra Tahir Ahmed [Cambridge: Lutterworth Press, 1989.]

    2. Penalty of Apostasy, Historical and Fundamental Study [Weston, Ont.: International Publishing and Distribution Co., 1998.]

    3. Freedom of Religion, Apostasy and Islam [Routledge; 1st edition, 2004]
