  • Confused about the punishment of stoning in Islam...

    Forgive me for my ignorance, but I have a few questions about the punishment of stoning to death in Islam...
    I am 100% a Muslim Alhamdulillah, but a few days ago I was having a discussion with a muslim who is struggling to understand Islam, he was asking me about a few topics that concerned him which I answered to the best of my knowledge. But when the topic of the punishment of stoning in Islam came up I struggled to answer him as I don't know much about it... It's not really a topic that I have ever looked into or asked about myself. :embar:



    So basically I'm hoping you can help me understand it! I find it hard to understand why this punishment is allowed? & why so harsh? After all we are all mere humans with our own cloud of sins, shouldn't it be only Allah who can punish these people?:confused: (I don't mean to be ignorant, I am just trying to understand it... I don't deny what is writen in the Quran at all, Allah knows best)

    In this discussion, another brother explained that in the Quran or hadith (Sorry, I don't remember which) it says that let the first person to throw a stone be sinless... Which is in fact a reminder to us all rather than a practice to follow that we ourselves are all sinful and to not judge or punish others unless we are perfect ourselves, which is almost impossible. Is this true?

    Please answer only if you have knowledge about it, no opinions. And please provide references. Internet is full of false websites so I'm not sure where to look but if you can direct me to any places in the Quran or hadiths etc? Jazakallah

    Re: Confused about the punishment of stoning in Islam...

    Assalamu Alaykum

    It seems you are a sincere person who questions in a very polite way. I know you are addressing your concerns, but you should not utter your doubts. Because this way you are admitting to the public your doubts on Allah's law. Every Muslim should support Allah's law inwardly and outwardly. You first should seek knowledge yourself on this, seek logical conclusions to refute your doubts, before you bring these doubts out.

    This is what I gathered from reading other people's views on this.

    I sugest you read sister Redeem's posts on this forum because she adresses all these doubts people put into our minds in a very logical way: http://www.gawaher.com/

    It is very important to know refutations to the most common things they usually bring to your face.

    All shar'i rules have rules that have to be met, before the original rule is brought out. This includes the punishment for stoning.

    This is how I refute them.

    Christians: It is known their Bible is an unreliable document. They have altered many laws of Allah and not just the punishments of stoning. However, in the old testament, the punishment of stoning is commanded. The Jews will admit it. The OT is theirs anyways.

    Atheists: Just tell them this is our law. How is our law different than theirs? Because their laws contain punishments, and so do ours. But what is the point of killing a person who beleivs somehting else? It is that they decided to scream out to the Muslim country and population that they left the religion of Muahmmad, sall-Alalhu alayhi was alam, and the religon of Allah, azz wa jall. This person is bringing our religion down this way on purpose to us, asking for a punishment and challenge. These people usually ridicule our religion, and we are not Christians, we do not allow our religion be treated as a last resort. Our religion is our priority and superiority judgeing them morally, etc...

    I find it hard to understand why this punishment is allowed?
    This punishment has to be performed by a judge or a magistrate [lower case judge]. Not by civilians. They are permitted to repent and come back to religon outwardly an dinwardly. There are no loop holes in shariyah. Shariyah is a strick law of Allah, azz w ajall, but it is also very leninet to us in many ways like in cases of necessity as well as force. And it does give exceptions from scripture to rules.

    find it hard to understand why this punishment is allowed?
    It is allowed with certain rules. These rules are easily met in an Islamic country. However, it isn't so strict, the person is not to tell or make his or her apostasy known.

    You have to understand that apostasy is an offense to Allah, they earned Allah's wrath after that person has all faviours of Alalh , and after Allah chose to grant that person the ability to learn this religion.

    why so harsh?
    What these disbelievers do is generalize on shariah making it seem as if it is impossible to implement it. This is not true at all. Let's say I commit adultery being unmarried. I am supposed to get punished by 100 lashes, and if I try this practice on myself, I would find out that it really isn't so harsh.

    Same with an apostate getting killed. If this apostate is so strong in his faith, they would want to get killed for their faith. It isn't like they are suffering so much.

    Allah is strict but also most lenient or merciful.

    After all we are all mere humans with our own cloud of sins, shouldn't it be only Allah who can punish these people?
    No. They deserve humiliation and punishment of this world, and on the herafter. Some sins are a real crime against Allah.

    Yes, these clouds of sins are something good for us. We turn back to Allah due to them. In the hereafter, it all depends on teh amount of good deeds you got in order Allah forgives you. When He forgives you, He grants you something no one can earn through good deeds; it is Paradise. Paradise is only the mercy of Allah.

    Allah ordained that humans punish these people. There is a law in this religion and humans implement it.

    I don't deny what is writen in the Quran at all, Allah knows best
    You're smart, alhamdulillah. We must not deny any verses or hadeeths. We are allowed to question them like you do :)

    In this discussion, another brother explained that in the Quran or hadith (Sorry, I don't remember which) it says that let the first person to throw a stone be sinless... Which is in fact a reminder to us all rather than a practice to follow that we ourselves are all sinful and to not judge or punish others unless we are perfect ourselves, which is almost impossible. Is this true?
    I do not know of that, but I wouldn't use it as some backup to their claims.

      Re: Confused about the punishment of stoning in Islam...

      One of the objectives of the Shariah is to preserve the family/lineage. Adultery (fornication is different) undermines the family system, and thus leads to further sins and causes the society to fall into chaos and disorder, as we see in much of the West today. That is why the punishment is so harsh.

      However, the punishment is mostly a deterrent, because it is almost impossible to meet the requirements needed to implement the punishment without the accused admitting his/her guilt. Four people are needed to witness the actual penetration in order for the punishment to be applied. And usually it is difficult to even find one witness. Not only that, but if someone accuses another person of commiting adultery and can't bring four witnesses, then the accuser is punishment with lashes. So if the Shariah is being properly implemented, then this is a very rare punishment to be carried out. I think this punishment happened on two or three occasions while Rasulullah was alive, and even then it was because the people being punished had come and asked Rasulullah to punish them. Also on each occasion, only the person who admitted guilt was punished while the other partner's name didn't even come up.

      Now, why did those people ask for the punishment despite knowing what it consisted of? Because they were genuinely remorseful and wanted to repent from the sin completely and not be punished for it in the Hereafter, because Allah does not punish a slave twice for one sin. Therefore, the punishment of stoning which they recieved in this world, erased their sin and caused them to not be punished for it in the Hereafter. Of course, they could have just repented secretly without the punishment and just kept the sin between themselves and Allah and thus not be punished in both this world and the Hereafter, but they decided to repent publicly for reasons best known to themselves and Allah.

      As for what the other brother said regarding those who themselves are sinless throwing the first stone, that is not from the Quran and has no place in Islam. It is actually a Christian teaching. Please let him know that.

        I am not someone with complete knowledge of Shari'ah. i dislike what you say becuse you're saying Allah prescribed something impossible to implement. From what I know:
        On this world, we judge people by actions. In shar'ah, we do not only apostate by claiming we belong to another religion, many things in Shr'ah can make a person an apostate, like not offering one of Islmaic pillars and denying Islamic teachings. You claim the person has to state it, but tha tis not correct, if someone sees that person commit acts of kuft deliberately, they will get executed.

        Many people prech th eway you do, negating things trying to please th eother party. Ther eis punishments in this religon and they are possibkle to me implementes, whether people like it or not. Do not make it seem as if this cannot be done. It easily can, especially if th eperson doesn't know how to give excuses of what they done publically for example.

          I never said that it is impossible to implement this punishment. I wrote that it is almost impossible, meaning that it is very difficult to meet the requirements needed to implement this punishment without the person admitting their guilt.

          I also did not claim that the person has to state their guilt. Yes, that is the easiest way to implement the punishment and the only way that it was implemented during the time of Rasulullah, as far as I know, but if the other requirements can be met then the punishment can be applied without the accused admitting guilt. But it is very difficult.

          You are wrong, sister, when you say that if someone sees a person commit acts of kufr deliberately then they will get executed. If a Muslim apostates, then he/she is executed only if they actively work against the Deen after apostating, as far I know. Otherwise this will go against the Ayah in the Quran which says that there is no compulsion in religion.

          Similarly, it is wrong to say that if someone sees a person commiting adultery then they will be stoned. One witness is not enough to meet the requirements for the punishment. You need to have four witnesses who saw the actual penetration. The two people could be together and naked and fooling around, but if penetration is not witnessed by at least four people, then the punishment cannot be applied. How difficult is that? Unless the people are commiting the act in the middle of the street then it would be almost impossible to prove.

          And why is it so difficult to prove? And why do the accusers get punished if they can't bring four witnesses? Because another objective of the Shariah is to preserve the dignity/honour/reputation of people. If there was no punishment for not being able to prove charges of adultery, then those accusations would be flying around left and right and people's, especially women's, reputations would be in tatters. So there is a wisdom behind everything which Allah has legislated whether we know it or not, and the Shariah is truly a beautiful thing is people take the effort to learn and understand it.

            By the way, sister Rasema, it seems that you are a bit confused. The punishment of stoning is not for apostasy, which is what you seem to believe. The punishment of stoning is for zina (adultery). Apostasy is straight up execution.

              Okay. Then you're saying it is very difficult to meet the requirments for this rule to become implemented. It may be so, but easy too, nothing near impossible. The person doesn't need to admit anyhthing if they are seen to commit acts of kufr for example.

              I also did not claim that the person has to state their guilt.
              I do not know if they do or they do not. Maybe someone else answers if they have to claim they are apostates. If for example a person quits praying in Saudia Arabia, they will be tortured in some way until they start praying again, if they do not, they do it out of arrogance, etc..and thus will get executed...

              Yes, that is the easiest way to implement the punishment and the only way that it was implemented during the time of Rasulullah, as far as I know, but if the other requirements can be met then the punishment can be applied without the accused admitting guilt. But it is very difficult.
              I am sorry brother, the authority wouoldn't find it diffucult at all. It is easy to find these poeple guilty, otherwise tehy never would commit these things and others would not come to know of their sins. The public would easily spot this person commit these sins in a way that will ge thim in trouble and clearly prove his guilt.


              You are wrong, sister, when you say that if someone sees a person commit acts of kufr deliberately then they will get executed. If a Muslim apostates, then he/she is executed only if they actively work against the Deen after apostating, as far I know.
              First of all, you do not see the seriousnes sof Sahriah. Second of all, if for some reason you find these rules negative due to some reasons of yours, please mention only the reasons and they will be reproved with greater logic by our brothers and sisters. Don't tell me I am wrong out of your own conclusions of Shar'ah and Qur'anic verses.

              go against the Ayah in the Quran which says that there is no compulsion in religion.
              There is no compulsion in religion. But how does that contradict that there is apunishment for leaving this religion? Waht does that verse mean? Please find out. You can't compulse someone to the religion, but if they come out of it themselves, then there is compulsion to bring them back into it. The verse you quoted is not complete in its context. Neither do you know verses befor eit or after it.

              To forse someone { There is no compulsion in, entering into, religion. ] to ACCEPT Islam this verse [and other verses] prohibit. To COME BACK to Islam is done out of the person's choice. "No, it is done by force and cumpulsion!" Maybe so,, but not to ACCEPT IT, BUT TO COME BACK TO IT. The difference is:

              Forsing a non-Muslim enter ISLAM is haram as said by verse. Frocing a fprmer Muslim reaccept islam is prescribed by 70 something ashaba and resool, salw.

              The differenc eis: Former Muslim [apostate] and a non-Muslim. See how stoning someone to death does no contradict forsing someone to ACCEPT Islam. APostates a long ago accepted it out of will. if they were born to it, they reach the age of puberty early and do have options to leave, but with what excuse?

                What ar eyou saying. Stop using words to mess with religious text.

                Punishment for leaving islam: "Whomsoever leaves Islam, kill him." Hadeeth and tons of others.
                Punishment for sommiting adultery: Unmarried is punished by a 100 lashes [men or women]. Married are punished by death penalty [Clearly fro m Qur'an].


                We ar egeneralizing on these rules making it seem to the first poster harsh due to your unclear writings. It becomes more acceptive to read this from the Qur'an directly, these rules. The Qur'an mentiones the requirments for these punishments to be carried out.

                Now stop confusing th equestionnare.

                    No argument exists:

                    "Allah's Apostle said, "The blood of a Muslim who confesses that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that I am His Apostle, cannot be shed except in three cases: In Qisas for murder, a married person who commits illegal sexual intercourse and the one who reverts from Islam (apostate) and leaves the Muslims."Sahih al-Bukhari, 9:83:17
                    "Whoever changed his (Islamic) religion, then kill him" Sahih al-Bukhari, 9:84:57


                    The [unmarried] woman or [unmarried] man found guilty of sexual intercourse - lash each one of them with a hundred lashes, and do not be taken by pity for them in the religion of Allah , if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a group of the believers witness their punishment.24:2


                    Your mistake is:

                    You follow your environment's suggestions and you rso called scholars. That is why these scholars do not follow the past scholars who were relatives of Resool, sall-Allah ualayhi wa salam.

                    Whomsover contradicts the past scholars in Sahr'ah, is not a scholar and should be boycotted. It is very important for all to follow past scholars and scholars who folow past scholars originally.
