Stoning is integral to Islam, a part of its Sharia Law – the divine constitution of Allah.
The penalty for adultery between a married man and a married woman is 100 lashes with a whip and death by stoning. (Volume 3, Part 3, p. 359)
So, when a daughter engages in illegal sexual acts, it becomes a religious responsibility for the father to mete out Allah’s prescribed punishment, including death by stoning. Not only that, in Islam, killing children by their parents are not crime as per “Umdat al-Saliq” or “Reliance of the Traveller”, a manual of Islamic law, certified in 1991 as a reliable guide to Sunni Islam by al-Azhar University, the most prestigious and authoritative institute of Sunni Islamic jurisprudence in the world. This 14th-century law-manual states that punishment or “retaliation is obligatory against anyone, who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right”, EXCEPT when “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers)” kills their “offspring, or offspring’s offspring” (section o1.1-2). In other words, a parent, who murders his/her child for the sake of honor or any other reason, does not commit any crime under Islamic law.
Murdering one’s child is murdering all mankind
HONOR KILLING IS A HATE CRIME
Hadiths record multiple incidents of stoning for adultery that were ordered by Muhammad. So, murdering someone by stoning for the act of adultery is a SUNNA, which Muslims must seek to enforce. For a detailed listing of Muhammad's stonings go to: http://www.islamreform.net/new-page-26.htm
The following is a video, wherein a father—following in the footsteps of Muhammad—stones his own daughter in front of a crowd screaming Allah Akbar – Allah is the Greatest. As the poor woman screams in pain and agony, the father happily smashes her head into a bloody pulp. What a barbaric crime that is:
Similar crimes of Muhammad have been recorded in vivid detail by his pious followers. One of the most barbaric acts of murder by Muhammad was stoning to death of a woman, who had just given birth (Muslim 17:4206). A woman, who became pregnant, confesses to Muhammad that she is guilty of adultery. Muhammad allows her to deliver the child, then had her stoned to death (Muslim (17:4206):
“….She said: Allah's Apostle, here is he (baby) as I have weaned him and he eats food. He (the Holy Prophet) entrusted the child to one of the Muslims and then pronounced punishment. And she was put in a ditch up to her chest and he commanded people and they stoned her. Khalid b Walid came forward with a stone which he flung at her head and there spurted blood on the face of Khalid and so he abused her. Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) heard his (Khalid's) curse that he had huried upon her. Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: Khalid, be gentle. By Him in Whose Hand is my life, she has made such a repentance that even if a wrongful tax-collector were to repent, he would have been forgiven. Then giving command regarding her, he prayed over her and she was buried.”
Read the complete Hadith here: http://www.islamreform.net/new-page-26.htm
Can you imagine the level of barbarity of burying the mother of little baby up to her breasts and stoning her to death? If you try to imagine the whole episode in your mind, what a horror scene it turns out to be! Quoting the hadith: “Khalid b Walid came forward with a stone which he flung at her head and there spurted blood on the face of Khalid and so he abused her.” Do you not hear the yelling and screaming of this poor woman begging for mercy, the blood gurgling in her mouth? Quoting the narrator, “she has made such repentance that even if a wrongful tax-collector were to repent, he (Muhammad) would have been forgiven.” But he won’t show mercy to this poor woman for a non-criminal deviant behavior. What a monstrously cruel person Muhammad was, who us supposedly a finest prophet of God and prototype of all humanity.
So, if you make a comparison, there is absolutely no difference between the levels of cruelty perpetrated by the father of the girls in the above video and by Muhammad in the above hadith incident.
No mention of stoning for adultery in the Quran!
So-called moderate Muslims frequently claim that stoning is not mentioned in the Quran. But that does not mean it is un-Islamic, since multiple hadiths mention Muhammad’s ordering of stoning to death for adultery, and the Quran commands Muslims to ‘obey Allah and His prophet” in many verses. Furthermore, according to Muhammad’s child-wife Aisha, Allah had revealed a verse commanding stoning to death for adultery, but a goat ate the piece of papyrus, on which it was recorded.
- [Narrated 'Aisha] "The verse of the stoning and of suckling an adult ten times were revealed, and they were (written) on a paper and kept under my bed. When the messenger of Allah expired and we were preoccupied with his death, a goat entered and ate away the paper." (Musnad Ahmad bin Hanbal. vol. 6. p. 269; Sunan Ibn Majah, p. 626; Ibn Qutbah, Tawil Mukhtalafi 'l-Hadith (Cairo: Maktaba al-Kulliyat al-Azhariyya. 1966) p. 310; As-Suyuti, ad-Durru 'l-Manthur, vol. 2. p. 13)
- It was narrated that 'Aishah said: “The Verse of stoning and of breastfeeding an adult ten times was revealed, and the paper was with me under my pillow. When the Messenger of Allah died, we were preoccupied with his death, and a tame sheep came in and ate it.” (Hasan) [Ibn Majah Vol. 3, Book 9, Hadith 1944]
These Hadiths are supported by other narrators.
God sent Muhammad, and sent down the scripture to him. Part of what he sent down was the passage on stoning. Umar says, “We read it, we were taught it, and we heeded it. The apostle Muhammad stoned, and we stoned after him.”
Sahih Bukhari 8.817, regarding the revelation of the stoning verse for adultery, records:
…In the meantime, Umar sat on the pulpit and when the callmakers for the prayer had finished their call, Umar stood up, and having glorified and praised Allah as He deserved, he said, “Now then, I am going to tell you something which (Allah) has written for me to say. I do not know; perhaps it portends my death, so whoever understands and remembers it, must narrate it to the others wherever his mount takes him, but if somebody is afraid that he does not understand it, then it is unlawful for him to tell lies about me. Allah sent Muhammad with the Truth and revealed the Holy Book to him, and among what Allah revealed, was the Verse of the Rajam the stoning of married person (male & female)… I am afraid that after a long time has passed, somebody will say, ‘By Allah, we do not find the Verse of the Rajam in Allah’s Book,’ and thus they will go astray by leaving an obligation which Allah has revealed. And the punishment of the Rajam is to be inflicted to any married person (male & female), who commits illegal sexual intercourse, if the required evidence is available or there is conception or confession. And then we used to recite among the Verses in Allah’s Book: ‘O people! Do not claim to be the offspring of other than your fathers, as it is disbelief (unthankfulness) on your part that you claim to be the offspring of other than your real father’…
Sahih Muslim 17:4194 also talks about revelation of the verse for stoning adulterers that was lost:
Abdullah b. Abbas reported that Umar b. Khattab sat on the pulpit of Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) and said: Verily Allah sent Muhammad (may peace be upon him) with truth and He sent down the Book upon him, and the verse of stoning was included in what was sent down to him. We recited it, retained it in our memory and understood it. Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) awarded the punishment of stoning to death (to the married adulterer and adulteress) and, after him, we also awarded the punishment of stoning, I am afraid that with the lapse of time, the people (may forget it) and may say: We do not find the punishment of stoning in the Book of Allah, and thus go astray by abandoning this duty prescribed by Allah. Stoning is a duty laid down in Allah’s Book for married men and women who commit adultery when proof is established, or it there is pregnancy, or a confession.
Stoning a legal divine punishment: Al-Quran
Although, stoning for adultery verses was eaten up by the goat, thus excluding it from compilation in the Quran, yet the Quran refer to stoning as a legal form of punishment of Allah.
- Qur'an 11:82: And we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone): Then see what was the end of those who indulged in sin and crime!
- Qur'an 7:84: We rained down on them a shower (of brimstone): and evil was the shower on those who were admonished (but heeded not)!
- Qur'an 26:173: And We rained down on them a shower (of brimstone): and evil was the shower on those who were admonished (but heeded not)!
- Qur'an 27:58: Stoning is barbaric cruelty causing horrendous suffering. No God would ever have as his prophet a man who ordered stoning for any reason. Muhammad was no prophet of any god and therefore Islam is totally fraudulent.
