Stoning for Adultery

STONING

The penalty for zina[change | change source]

Sharia law states that if either an unmarried man or an unmarried woman has pre-marital sex, the punishment should be 100 lashes.[14][15] If a married man or a married woman commit adultery, the punishment should be 100 lashes and then stoning to death.[16] There are some requirements that need to be met before this punishment can happen. For example, the punishment cannot happen unless the person confesses, or unless four male eyewitnesses each saw, at the same time, the man and the women in the action of illicit sex. Those who accuse someone of illicit sex but fail to produce four eyewitnesses are guilty of false accusation and their punishment is 80 lashes.[17] Maliki school of sharia considers pregnancy in an unmarried woman as sufficient evidence that she committed the hudud crime of zina.[18][19] The Hadiths consider homosexuality as zina, to be punished with death.[20]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hudud#Punishments

  • Capital punishments – by beheading / crucifixion (for apostasy, for highway robbery with homicide), by stoning (for illicit sex by a married offender)
  • Amputation of hands or feet (for theft and highway robbery without homicide)
  • Flogging, between 40 to 100 strokes (for sex by unmarried offender, drinking alcohol, gambling, and accusing someone of illicit sex but failing to present Muslim witnesses of the crime)  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hudud#Punishments
