The following is my answer to a Quora question: “Can an ex-Muslim become a Muslim again?”
There is nothing in the religion that precludes anybody from coming to Islam, even an ex-Muslim. The foundations of the faith is our husn azh-zhan, good opinion, of God, and that includes Generosity, Mercy and a Forgiving Nature. What is required is the renunciation of anything inclement to the testification of faith, that there is no god but Allah (s.w.t.), and that Muhammad (s.a.w.) is the final prophet and Messenger. Your sins are Forgiven, and you are Muslim.
