Thanks for your replies.

It would be like finding a lost sheep and bringing it home.

I was wondering also if there is more leniency if a convert reconverts back to her own religion. Do they make a distinction between a convert and a Muslim from birth?–or do their laws on death penalty apply to all Muslims?
She’s Filipino and her husband is from middle east, according to the newspaper article. Here in the Philippines, the Shar’ia law is for Muslims and our civil law for non-Muslims.
When she brought back her children with her here in our country, the Shar’ia law applied to her because she was technically a Muslim. When she reconverted back to Catholicism, that was when the law for non-Muslims applied and she was able to get her children from her husband.
No offense intended for Muslims in this forum, but I really found the application of Shar’ia law in this case quite unfair to the woman considering she was already maltreated by her husband and their law intended for her to lose her children as well?

this is something we must warn women about
I agree with you.
The latest news regarding the second and more well-known actress here who is having marital problems with her Muslim spouse apparently for maltreatment (also) --her husband said that he wants his family back together (he intends to fetch her and her children here) and bring them back to his Muslim country and that it was okey for him if she converts back to Catholicism…and that he intends to teach his children how to pray.
The mother of this actress said that she will try to stop the plane if ever her daughter plans to return to her husband’s country. Its a bit dramatic, I know, but I understand where her mother is coming from. I would be scared too considering that they live in a far-away country.
I am wondering if in case she does give her marriage a second chance and it does not work out, will this actress will have a hard time getting her children back if ever she goes back to his Muslim country?
