Stoning

Summary:


From Iranian Penal code prior to 2013. The status of stoning as a punishment in Iran is now unclear as the provision was originally removed by Iranian MPs but then reinstated with ambiguous wording by the Iranian Guardian Council of Cleric and sharia Jurists.

Article 102 of the Islamic Penal Code reads: “An adulterer man shall be buried in a ditch up to near his waist and an adulterer woman up to near her chest and then stoned to death.”

Article 104 – “The size of the stone used in stoning shall not be too large to kill the convict by one or two throws and at the same time shall not be too small to be called a stone.” That is, pebbles are ruled out, but so are rocks big enough to kill quickly.

Article 23 – But if the condemnation is based on the testimonies of witnesses, then first the witnesses will throw stones, then the mentioned judge and then other people.

Stonings can reportedly take anywhere from 20 minutes to two hours. According to the International Committee Against Stoning, the doctor recruited to oversee the execution (often against his will) will periodically stop proceedings to check if the victim is dead. If not, the stoning resumes.

Summary: 

AISHA Ibrahim Duhulow was 13 years old when she was buried up to her neck in the Somali port city of Kismayu on Oct 27 and stoned to death by 50 men belonging to the Islamic group Al Shahab. A truckload of stones was brought to the field where this murder took place. When a few members of the thousand-strong spectators tried to save the girl, Al Shahab gunmen opened fire, accidentally shooting a little boy. It did not take long to kill Aisha. She had been accused of fornication, although according to her bereft father, she had gone to complain of being raped by three men.

 The Muslim candidate Fahad Qureshi from the Islam Net group refused to condemn stoning of homosexuals during a debate with Norway's immigration minister Sylvi Listhaug. He also refused to shake hands with Listhaug.

Summary: 
  • Islam was created 600 years after Christianity not to affirm the Bible, but to discredit it; not to co-exist with "the people of the book" -- Jews and Christians -- but to replace them.

  • It is hard to read Islamic law books without concluding that Islamic values are essentially "a rebellion against the Ten Commandments".

  • Islam violates the commandment "Thou shalt not kill" when Allah commanded Muslims to kill Allah's enemies, and in the process, kill and be killed in jihad if they are to be guaranteed heaven.

  • Accepting a parallel legal system would effectively nullify actual freedom for many of the people possibly forced to use it, and the ability to receive equal justice under law. Sharia is the reason there is a death warrant out on this author, on Salman Rushdie and others, for apostasy.

Summary: 

What does sharia decree?

Sharia offers a code for living governing all elements of life, from prayers to fasting to donations to the poor. It decrees that men and women should dress modestly, which in some countries is interpreted as women taking the veil and the sexes being segregated.

"Sharia governs the lives of people in ways which are not governed by the law," says Lynn Welchman, director of the Centre for Islamic and Middle Eastern Law. "Over 50 countries are members of the Organisation of Islamic Conference, and you can expect there will be some form of compliance with sharia - either in people's personal lives or enforced through the courts by the state. A lot of states in the Middle East are taking more elements of sharia into their state laws."

What are Hadd offences?

Within sharia law, there is a specific set of offences known as the Hadd offences. These are crimes punished by specific penalties, such as stoning, lashes or the severing of a hand. The penalties for Hadd offences are not universally adopted as law in Islamic countries.

Some countries, such as Saudi Arabia, claim to live under pure sharia law and enforce the penalties for Hadd offences. In others, such as Pakistan, the penalties have not been enforced. The majority of Middle Eastern countries, including Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon and Syria, have not adopted Hadd offences as part of their state laws.

Hadd offences carry specific penalties, set by the Koran and by the prophet Mohammed. These include unlawful sexual intercourse (outside marriage); false accusation of unlawful intercourse; the drinking of alcohol; theft; and highway robbery. Sexual offences carry a penalty of stoning to death or flogging while theft is punished with cutting off a hand.
