Former Muslims United (sometimes abbreviated as FMU)[1] is a group formed in October 2009[2] in the United States which seeks to protect former Muslims from persecution by those Muslims who believe that Sharia (Muslim religious law) requires such persecution. They are vocally outspoken against honor killings.[3]

They wrote a pledge rejecting punishment by death for apostasy that was sent to many people.[4] The Director of the organization is Nonie Darwish.[5]

The group opposed the building of a new mosque for the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.[6] They put up a billboard saying “Stop the Murfreesboro Mosque".[7][8][9]
