In this case, the difference isn't because one's a man and one's a woman, rather it's because one is the one being accused, and one is the accuser. If the accuser is lying when he accuses his wife, then the worst he is guilty of is lying. However, if the accused is lying when she swears against this accusation, she is not only guilty of lying, but it also ...

Stoning married adulterers is a revelation from Allah ﷻ. This is why the Prophet ﷺ and his companions did so. The verses you quoted on flogging refer to unmarried adulterers. In the khutba of a Friday prayer, 'Umar ibn Al-Khattab responded to your question: حَدَّثَنِي أَبُو الطَّاهِرِ، وَحَرْمَلَةُ بْنُ يَحْيَى، قَالاَ حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ وَهْبٍ، ...

First, let us define some of the words that were translated, a mushrik is just someone who committed an unforgivable crime, it does not necessarily mean a polytheist, this is just one of the crimes that are considered shirk. Of the crimes that are considered shirk, adultery is one or them, so a mushrik can also refer to an adulterer. The ayah says that they ...

From Holy Qur'an: And do not marry Al-Mushrikât (idolatresses, etc.) till they believe (worship Allâh Alone). And indeed a slave woman who believes is better than a (free) Mushrikah (idolatress, etc.), even though she pleases you. And give not (your daughters) in marriage to Al-Mushrikûn till they believe (in Allâh Alone) and verily, a believing slave is ...

Stoning an adulterer is the universally accepted legal punishment among the scholars of sunni islam (see e.g. islamqa), and I think among shia scholars as well. The material law (i.e. what is the punishment and what constitutes adultery) is quite clear; penetrative sex while married with someone you are not married to constitutes adultery, and the punishment ...

The Muslim has committed fornication because (s)he is unmarried. The non-Muslim has committed adultery because (s)he is married. Both adultery and fornication are called Zina. Non-Muslim's marriages are considered valid.

It is good that your friend intends to observe Ramadan as fasting this month expiates all but major sins in between two occurrences of Ramadan: عن أبي هريرة أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم كان يقول: الصَّلَوَاتُ الْخَمْسُ وَالْجُمُعَةُ إِلَى الْجُمُعَةِ وَرَمَضَانُ إِلَى رَمَضَانَ مُكَفِّرَاتٌ مَا بَيْنَهُنَّ إِذَا اجْتَنَبَ الْكَبَائِرَ Abu Huraira ...

You start your assumptions from the wrong perspective and we know logic says: ex falso quodlibet. Zina is indeed a sexual relationship out of marriage. Now what you seem to have overseen is that in the case of an in-vitro fertilization where the eggs don't come from the wife (while the semen comes from the husband), they would come from an other woman. ...

According to Islam, it is considered as haram practice to have such relations as you said explicit sexual roleplay on the Internet (cybersex) with someone they are not married to. Since this kind of relation can be led to haram (forbidden) acts (or thoughts) and actually Satan will be the third person between you and the person who you are chatting to....

Wa Alaykum Salam. There are 2 opinions about this issue: Recm (stoning to death) is not mentioned in Quran. Therefore there should be no killing. The punishment should be given according to Quran. There are hadiths about recm. Usually (maybe in all) the ones that was killed was all married ones. There is also a claim that there were verses about recm, but ...

A general rule: any sin that is thought as less important will become greater. In a Hadeeth Imam Ali peace be upon him says do not see to the smallness of the sin but do see the greatness of the one you disobey. In another Hadeeth any relatively small sin that is considered small will become a major sin. Now let me return back to your statement that "I am ...
