Killing a Muslim unlawfully is a serious matter and a grave crime.

Yes, but on a case-by-case basis. From the long hadith narrated on the authority of 'Abdullah ibn Buraida, the Prophet ﷺ delayed the stoning of a woman from Ghāmid till after her child had weaned: قَالَ: إِمَّا لاَ فَاذْهَبِي حَتَّى تَلِدِي.‏ فَلَمَّا وَلَدَتْ أَتَتْهُ بِالصَّبِيِّ فِي خِرْقَةٍ قَالَتْ هَذَا قَدْ وَلَدْتُهُ.‏ قَالَ: ‏ اذْهَبِي ...

Honor killing is not allowed in Islam, because it isn't the ordered punishment in Quran. A Muslim is not allowed to apply a different punishment other than the one ordered in Quran. Recm (stoning) was only done once to a woman who herself confessed her sin. At that time, the ayats which contained law for punishment of adultery hadn't been delivered yet. So, ...

A fast answer (here the basical references al-Muwatta' 1, 2, 3, 4 sunan abi Dawod, jami' at-Tirmidhi 1, 2 and sahih Muslim) as I'm busy!

Ibn Abi Zayd al-Qayrawani said in his Risala: Legal ...

Proof can be established through: Al-Iqrār (Arabic: الإقرار): Confession by the person committing hirābah, or Al-Bayyinah (Arabic: البينة): The testimony of two witnesses provided certain conditions are met. The conditions for the witnesses are that they: Be ...

One of the conditions for applying the Hadd punishment is that the perpetrator must be accountable, it does not apply to a child below the age of puberty. رفع القلم عن ثلاثة عن النائم حتى يستيقظ وعن الصبي حتى يحتلم وعن المجنون حتى يعقل The pen has been lifted from three: a sleeper till he awakes, a boy till he reaches puberty, and a lunatic till he ...

If the burden of proof is not met or there's a doubt (even in case of an adulterer who in first place admitted his crime, but then retracted his statement or in case of a drunk when the only evidence is the odour of alcohol) then the accused Person must be released. Let's take a detailed example: In case of Theft The qadi still has the option of ta'azir ...

This is an open and shut case: "We were with the Prophet (ﷺ) [in a gathering] and he said: 'Pledge to me that you will not associate [anything as] partners with Allah, and that you will not steal nor commit adultery.' He recited to them the Ayah. (And he said:)'Whoever among you dies, then this reward is with Allah, and whoever among you does some of this ...

No there are only hadd punishment for what goes against one of the five fundamental goals of shari'a مقاصد الشريعة which are (I'll quote example cases where the punishment may apply for each of them): The preservation of ... - Religion / Faith (din الدين) like the case of an apostate that attacks Islam - Life (nafs النفس) like somebody who kills an ...

I would like to say that the above incidents are not honor killings; rather, they are part of the shareeah of Islam ("the law of the land").
