CHAPTER 4 PAGAN PUNISHMENT FOR ADULTERY ALSO STOLEN FROM THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE.
CHAPTER 4 PAGAN PUNISHMENT FOR ADULTERY ALSO STOLEN FROM THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE.
In this chapter I wish to show more evidence of the so called Hudood Laws (part of the Sharia Laws of the religion of Ahlus Sunnah) that are plagiarized from the Christian Bible. In this case we shall look at the laws relating to the punishment for adultery.
The Sharia Laws state that the adulteress and the adulterer shall be stoned to death. If they are not married the punishment is 100 lashes. This is a great blasphemy against the Prophet and is an attempt to smear the good name of Islam. Stoning to death is NOT part of Islam.
This is another false law the ulema of Ahlul Sunnah have stolen from the Christian Bible. Here is the evidence :
Deuteronomy 22: 23 - 24
22 If a man is found sleeping with another man's wife, both the man who slept with her and the woman must die. You must purge the evil from Israel.
23 If a man happens to meet in a town a virgin pledged to be married and he sleeps with her, 24 you shall take both of them to the gate of that town and stone them to death-the girl because she was in a town and did not scream for help, and the man because he violated another man's wife. You must purge the evil from among you.
This is the source of the evil Sharia Law where the Ahlul Sunnah say that the adulterer and the adulteress must be stoned to death.
The Bible repeats this death penalty again :
10 " 'If a man commits adultery with another man's wife-with the wife of his neighbor-both the adulterer and the adulteress must be put to death.
Coming now to the Ahlul Sunnah, in the collection of fake hadith known as the Sahih al Bukhari (Volume 8, pages 209-210, translation by Dr Muhammad Muhsin Khan) we read this alleged sermon delivered by someone by the name of Hadhrath Umar during his last Hajj as Khalifa:
"Certainly Allah sent Muhammad with the truth, and revealed to him
the Book. One of the revelations which came to him was the verse of
stoning. We read it and understood it. The Messenger of God stoned and we stoned after him. I am concerned that if time goes on, someone may say, 'By God, we do not find the verse of stoning in the Book of God;' thus, the Muslims will deviate by neglecting a commandment the Almighty revealed."
"Stoning is in the Book of God. It is the right punishment for a
person who commits adultery if the required witnesses are available,
or there was pregnancy without marriage or adultery is admitted."
"When the verses "Rajm" [Stoning] and ayah "Rezah Kabir" descended,
they were written on a piece of paper and kept under my pillow. Following the demise of Prophet Muhammad (S) a goat ate the piece of paper while we were mourning.
Refer also 1. Sunan Ibne Majah, Volume 2, Page 39, Published Karachi, 2. Musnad Imam Ahmad, Volume 6, Page 269, Published Beirut and 3. Taweel Mukhtalif Al Hadees, Page 310, Published Beirut.
This is the famous false hadith where the ulema say that the verse of stoning people to death was revealed by God and then became abrogated after a GOAT ate the piece of paper or parchment on which this verse was written. This story is too ridiculous even to justify any comment. If indeed the GOAT ate the verse and caused it to be abrogated, then why still keep in practice a verse that has been abrogated by a hungry GOAT ?
This killing the adulteress / adulterer or stoning them to death is NOT found anywhere in the Quran at all. About those who commit zina (adultery) the Quran says the following :
[24.2] (As for) the fornicatress and the fornicator, flog each of them, (giving) a hundred stripes, and let not pity for them detain you in the matter of obedience to Allah, if you believe in Allah and the last day, and let a party of believers witness their chastisement.
This is the Quranic law. But according to the Christian Bible and the false hadeeth created by the ulema, the adulterer and the adulteress must both be stoned to death or killed. Since the Bible came before the hadeeth, we now know that the false hadeeth about stoning people to death is stolen from the Christian Bible.
Just like the head covering for women, the law of stoning the adulterer/ adulteress to death is also plagiarized from the Bible. Indeed the Ahlus Sunnah are actually Christians. They are not Muslims.
They have created a great fitnah against the Prophet by saying that the Prophet prescribed the stoning of people to death for adultery.
The act of people stoning other people is indeed recorded five times in the Quran. In all these occurrences the people who performed the act of stoning were pagan disbelievers. Nowhere in the Quran does it mention that any believer or Muslim shall stone another human being.
Of course the exception to this is God Himself who says that He has rained stones upon evil communities of the past. But God also says that He can burn the wrongdoers in the hellfire, wipe out the wrongdoers by earthquakes, send diseases against them and so on. That is all within God’s power but nowhere in the Quran does God ask any human to stone another human for anything. In the Quran, the act of stoning other people is always the practice of the pagans. Here are all the five occurrences of pagans stoning people in the Quran :
In Surah 26:116 Noah was threatened with stoning by the pagan disbelievers.
In Surah 19:46 Abraham's father who was a pagan disbeliever threatens to stone Abraham.
In Surah 18:20 the Companions of the Cave (Ashaabul Kahfi) are in fear of being stoned by the pagan disbelievers.
In Surah 36:18 three messengers are threatened with stoning by the pagan disbelievers.
In Surah 11:91 the Prophet Shuaib is threatened with stoning by the pagan disbelievers.
Throughout the Quran the only people who resort to stoning are the pagan disbelievers. Stoning people is not a punishment sanctioned by Islam.
We have already quoted the verse above (Surah 24:2) which prescribes the punishment of 100 lashes for the adulteress and the adulterer. Here are some other verses that talk about punishing adulterous behaviour.
[4.22] And marry not woman whom your fathers married, except what has already passed; this surely is indecent and hateful, and it is an evil way.
[4.23] Forbidden to you are your mothers and your daughters and your sisters and your paternal aunts and your maternal aunts and brothers' daughters and sisters' daughters and your mothers that have suckled you and your foster-sisters and mothers of your wives and your step-daughters who are in your guardianship, (born) of your wives to whom you have gone in, but if you have not gone in to them, there is no blame on you (in marrying them), and the wives of your sons who are of your own loins and that you should have two sisters together, except what has already passed; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
[4.24] And all married women except those whom your right hands possess (this is) Allah's ordinance to you, and lawful for you are (all women) besides those, provided that you seek (them) with your property, taking (them) in marriage not committing fornication. Then as to those whom you profit by, give them their dowries as appointed; and there is no blame on you about what you mutually agree after what is appointed; surely Allah is Knowing, Wise.
[4.25] And whoever among you has not within his power ampleness of means to marry free believing women, then (he may marry) of those whom your right hands possess from among your believing maidens; and Allah knows best your faith: you are (sprung) the one from the other; so marry them with the permission of their masters, and give them their dowries justly, they being chaste, not fornicating, nor receiving paramours; and when they are taken in marriage, then if they are guilty of indecency, they shall suffer half the punishment which is (inflicted) upon free women. This is for him among you who fears falling into evil; and that you abstain is better for you, and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
[4.26] Allah desires to explain to you, and to guide you into the ways of those before you, and to turn to you (mercifully), and Allah is Knowing, Wise.
In 4:25 above we are advised to marry believing women or even bondwomen. If the bondwomen who are married later commit sexual indecency then their punishment shall be half the punishment meted out to the free believing women.
This can only be possible if the punishment for adultery for example is 100 lashes as per Surah 24:2. The punishment for the bondwomen who commit adultery would then be 50 lashes or half the punishment for free women. If the punishment for adultery was stoning to death, then how do the ulema stone someone ‘half to death’ ?
It is clear that the ulema stand on stupid ground when they try to uphold false teachings from the Christian Bible against the true teachings of the Prophet in the Quran. The ulema have caused a lot of chaos, confusion and hardship for the ummah because they insist on upholding falsehoods from the Christian Bible.
