The penalty for apostasy in Islam is death:
Sahih al-Bukhari 6922—Allah’s Messenger said, "Whoever changed his Islamic religion, kill him."While there is some disagreement among Muslim scholars as to whether female apostates are to receive the same penalty as male apostates, early Muslim authorities insisted that both males and females were to be killed for leaving Islam.
Sahih al-Bukhari 6921—Ibn Umar, Az-Zuhri, and Ibrahim said, "A female apostate (who reverts from Islam), should be killed."According to Muhammad, Muslims must carry out Allah's punishments even against their own family members:
Sunan Ibn Majah 2540—The Messenger of Allah said: "Carry out the legal punishments on relatives and strangers, and do not let the fear of blame stop you from carrying out the command of Allah."Not surprisingly, when Rifqa's father found out about her conversion and threatened to kill her, she ran away from home and sought refuge with a Christian couple in Orlando, Florida.

She recently spoke at First Baptist Orlando (Rifqa starts speaking after the 27:00 mark):
