Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, Pregnant Woman Sentenced To Death For 'Apostasy', Won't Renounce Faith, Husband Says


Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, faces death penalty in Sudan for not renouncing her Christian faith.

Even in the face of death, a pregnant woman in Sudan says she will not renounce her Christian faith.

Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, who is in her late-twenties, was sentenced to death by hanging earlier this month after being convicted in a Khartoum court of "apostasy."   Apostasy - Wiki  is the formal disaffiliation from or abandonment or renunciation of a religion by a person. One who commits apostasy (or who apostatizes) is known as an apostate. The term apostasy is used by sociologists to mean renunciation and criticism of, or opposition to, a person's former religion, in a technical sense and without pejorative connotation.

The term is occasionally also used metaphorically to refer to renunciation of a non-religious belief or cause, such as a political party, brain trust, or a sports team.

According to the AP, Ibrahim, who is eight months pregnant, was given four days to renounce Christianity and escape death, but she refused to do so.

Ibrahim's husband, Daniel Wani, told Fox News this week that his wife's position has not wavered.

The conversion of Muslims into other religions is punishable by death in Sudan, where Islamic Shariah laws were introduced in the 1980s, according to the AP.

Ibrahim, whose father is Muslim but mother is an Orthodox Christian, reportedly told the court that she was never Muslim and was raised Christian.

According to Amnesty International, a date for Ibrahim's execution has not been announced. "Sudan won't hang Meriam while she is pregnant," the organization wrote on its UK website. "The Criminal Code states that she must give birth first, and nurse her child for two years before her execution can go ahead."

Ibrahim has reportedly been held in prison for more than three months.

Pray for her and Christians all around the world who are being threatened with death and persecuted for believing in the Holy Bible.  Jesus is clearly her Lord! Our Sister in Christ is a pure example of what it means to be a faithful and righteous servant of Christ. Amen!
