Western country or Islamic country?
Age of brother?
Yes, your life is at stake. Yes, you should be paranoid. Welcome to humanity.
Welcome to FFI coco.
I am not sure how old your brother is and how seriously he takes islam but i guess you need to lead him to analyse the Quran. Just sit with him and read Quran with him and ask questions. Create doubts in his mind and he will join you.

At first it was a big shock etc. but it wasn't because I was going against Islam that was the problem, but the fact that I had become different from them. My mum believes in life after death and she said she wants to be with me after we die, even if it's in hell. Thus by me leaving Islam she thinks we won't be together in the hereafter. Both my parents are these so called 'apologetics' the precise rules of Islam aren't a big deal to them. So this made me really lucky compared to other apostates.
However as of late my younger brother is learning more about Islam, and has recently been enlightened to that oh-so-amazing hadith that claims death upon apostates. He made some threatening remarks while telling me about it but I just took it as a joke.
But now I'm beginning to wonder if it is really just a joke? I could never in my life imagine my brother killing me!!! But then I shouldn't underestimate the power of this religion. I'm scared that my brother will slowly turn into a fanatic and one day reason with himself that I need to die.
I want to know what anyone's opinion is of this actually happening...or am I just being paranoid in my state as an apostate of Islam?
I don't know what to do. He won't listen to me at all,

He won't listen to me at all, it's like he has some barrier that comes up when I talk about the Qur'an, he doesn't agree with most of it, but he will never question it. I put a translated copy of the quran down hard on the table once and he grabbed my hand really hard and said some things. I said that he was acting crazy all because of a book! Then he said what would I do if he did that to one of the books in my room I like reading. I just started to laugh because I wouldn't care if someone put a book down on a table and it made a noise.

Muslim kills his sister for family honour.
OTTAWA - A man who killed his sister and her fiance because they brought dishonour on his family was sentenced to life in prison yesterday with no chance of parole for 25 years. Hasibullah Sadiqi, 23, said nothing after a jury of seven men and five women found him guilty of two counts of first-degree murder in the Sept. 19, 2006 gun slayings of his sister, Khatera Sadiqi, 20, and her fiance, Feroz Mangal, 23. The couple were shot to death while they sat in Khatera's car in the Elmvale Mall parking lot just before 1 a.m.
"Your crimes have shocked and bewildered the people of almost every community in the nation's capital," said Ontario Superior Court Justice Douglas Rutherford, who sentenced Sadiqi immediately following the verdict. "The forfeiture of your liberty for the rest of your life only seems just."
Members of Mangal's family, including three of his brothers, wept in the courtroom when the verdict was confirmed by Rutherford. Hameed Mangal told the court his family's lives have not been the same since the killings....
Over the course of the month-long trial, the jury heard from witnesses that Hasibullah Sadiqi was angered by the fact his sister had decided to get engaged to Mangal without seeking the permission of her father, from who she was estranged. Khatera had also begun living with Mangal and his family, another decision which witnesses said upset Hasibullah.
On the evening of Sept. 18, 2006, the couple went for dinner and to a movie with a group of friends that included Hasibullah. Khatera and Mangal drove Hasibullah to where his car was parked near the mall at the end of the evening. Before they could drive away, Hasibullah walked to his car, pulled a loaded Smith & Wesson .44 Magnum handgun from underneath the seat, walked back to Khatera's car and shot the couple at close range. Khatera died at the scene; Mangal was taken to hospital but died 10 days later when he was removed from life support.
In a victim impact statement read to the court by assistant Crown attorney Mark Moors, Khatera's mother, Nasima Fayaz wrote about how there remain unanswered questions despite the conclusion of the trial.
"The most compelling question, though, and always the most elusive, is why?" Fayaz wrote. "In this instance, why were two clean-living, law-abiding young people so shockingly removed from this world? Can anyone convincingly answer this question?
what happened dear coco ., How old is your younger brother? how old are you and what does he weigh?? Take some karate classes., Slap him and beat the hell of that kid until he gets good grades in school and stops talking nonsense about religions. Did he finish high school?
But there is something you can do. Ask him questions.

I will try to do this, but when I do he say things like 'I don't talk to kafirs' etc. There's an iron curtain around him, I think mostly he fears what happens after, when he finally accepts that Islam is not what he thinks it is. Right now Islam is the only way, like how it was with me.

Ram wrote:Turbopower, what are you trying to prove? What kind of Islamic logic are you using? Please educate us. In one case, a Muslim man kills his sister because in his eyes she had dishonoured the family by choosing a man to marry without his and his father's consent - he did not care that the man was a Muslim also. In the other case, it is purely an emotional disconnect and a dire financial situation.
A Muslim is very sane and exactly knew why he had to kill his sister and her fiance. He killed for Islam, he killed because he was a Muslim. The other guy killed because he was insane. A very big difference.
