Christian Woman in Egypt Jailed Because Her Father Was Once Muslim

by Dr. D ~ November 25th, 2007

A Christian woman in Egypt was recently sentenced to 3 years in prison for the terrible crime of having a father who became a Muslim for a short time. This sounds incredible to Western ears, but ones official religion in Egypt is determined by the religions of ones father.

Shadia Nagui Ibrahim was found guilty of fraud for claiming that she was a Christian since her father had converted to Islam for a short period, though later came back to Christianity. He ‘officially’ became Muslim at that time and never legally reversed the situation. Therefore, Shadia was ‘officially’ Muslim even though she has been a Christian all of her life.

Comments: Sound confusing? The laws in Egypt are in place to keep Muslims from marrying Christians and/or converting to Christianity. It is very difficult for a Muslim to convert to Christianity in Egypt. To do so could be a jailable offense depending on the circumstances. However, Christians are quite welcome to convert to Islam.  The persecution of Christians ‘legally’ continues in Egypt.           *Top
