Shaykh ibn Taymiyyah (r.a.) on Those the Prophet (s.a.w.) Executed for Apostasy

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh ibn Taymiyyah (r.a.) mentioned: “The Prophet (s.a.w.) accepted the repentance of some apostates and ordered the execution of others who had added to their apostasy other matters that included doing ill and causing harm to Islam and Muslims.  For example, he ordered the execution of Maqis ibn Hubabah, the day Makkah was conquered, because in addition to his apostasy, he had killed Muslims and taken property and had not repented before his capture; he ordered the execution of al-Quraniyyun when they compounded their apostasy with similar matters as well; he ordered the execution of ibn Khatal when he compounded his apostasy with curses and the killing of Muslims; and he ordered the execution of ibn Abu as-Sarh when he compounded his apostasy with accusations and slander.”
