Yes, it is true that leaving Islam, in an Islamic state, can be a reason for someone to be put to death. Note the caveat: in an Islamic state. We do not have any Islamic state today; only Muslim countries who mix some parts of Islamic law with other types of law. I think the question you're asking is more about why this might be the case. As you mentioned, ...

It is impermissible to treat Animals bad, and the punishment is in the hereafter from Allah, but there is no haad or punishment in life, Also there is a reward from Allah for being kind to animals, Wallah A'laam. Narrated 'Abdullah bin `Umar: Allah's Apostle said, "A woman was tortured and was put in Hell because of a cat which she had kept locked ...

The quran orders certain punishments for those who sin the quran however does not say anything specifically about stoning or beheding. But it does include cutting the theives hand “[As for] the thief, the male and the female, amputate their hands in recompense for what they earned [i.e. committed] as a deterrent [punishment] from Allaah. And Allaah is ...

The hurricane on the east coast is the result of well understood weather conditions that are endemic to that region due to equally understood geographic, coastal and atmospheric conditions. The infrastructure impact, while significant, has resulted in remarkably few deaths, and is mainly inconvenient. High population density contributes to the number of ...

The question is a good one, and to see the answer, you have to understand that your question compares apples to oranges. As you say, it would be completely evil for a parent to apply such harsh punishment on his children. So why is God different? God is nothing like a human. He has no errors in judgement. He not only understands causes and effects; he ...

No, don't tell your would be spouse or to anyone for the Prophet has said, Every one of my followers will be forgiven except those who expose (openly) their wrongdoings. An example of this is that of a man who commits a sin at night which Allah has covered for him, and in the morning, he would say (to people): "I committed such and such sin last ...

One major problem i personally have with those who say we take the Quran only is: That Quran has been brought to us through a sane narrator chain with a high degree of tawatur, which is (or at least should be according to definition) the same case for Sahih Hadith. And riwayat al-ahaad in case of Quran have always been rejected! Note that as @makzimus said ...

Why should God act on the whims and provocations of a man? Is that worthy of His Majesty and Stature? God acts as He wills, and He does according to what He decrees. God doesn't respond to provocation, He punishes whom He judges, and administers the punishment in His own way, and He gives mankind freedom and respite for an appointed time and He will judge ...

There's no worldly punishment for acts done in ignorance. By stopping the act and staying away from him is a very good sign Alhamdulillah. What you should do is still make tawbah and astaghfir to Allah. In Surah aali-Imran 3:135 Allah says = "And those who, when they commit an immorality or wrong themselves, remember Allah and seek forgiveness for ...

Bismillah. Allah accepts repentance from any Muslim so long as his soul has not left his body. I.e, as long as he is still alive. That being said however, Allah will stop accepting repentance from any Muslim once the sun rises from the west and sets in the east. This is one of the major sins of al akhira (the day of judgement), in which every Muslim's book ...

Allah say in Quran: On the Day We will say to Hell, "Have you been filled?" and it will say, "Are there some more,"(Surat Qāf,verse 30) And: ... "I will surely fill Hell with jinn and people all together.'"(Surat As-Sajdah,verse 13) This verses emphasize that the promise of Allah will happen, and Allah will fill Hell with jinn and people; and of ...

If you go to the pages of holy Qur'an, As an example of storm (Maybe a hurricane), you'll find this: Surah Al-Ahqaf (Ayaah 21 - 25): And mention, [O Muhammad], the brother of 'Aad, when he warned his people in the [region of] al-Ahqaf - and warners had already passed on before him and after him - [saying], "Do not worship except Allah .

Yes, they are allowed to say whatever they want until their death. After that, in the Judgement Day, Allah will give their punishment for their sins. You are basically not authorized to attack them. But, you should defend your religion, without exceeding the limit. What is the limit? It is what they do. If they attack with their tongue, you should defend ...

God has many traditions. Among them is the Sunnah of استدراج (Istidraj). Which is like God leaving the person all to himself, letting him enjoy himself. Like a parent who is, OK I'm done with you, I'm not even going to punish you anymore (in this world), I'll leave all my justice to you for the afterlife. *وَ لاَ یحْسَبَنَّ الَّذِینَ کفَرُواْ أَنَّمَا ...

A Muslim who turns back from Islam and returns to disbelief is called a مرتد (murtad) in Islamic jurisprudence. The basis of this is the usage of the term in the Quran: ومن يرتدد منكم عن دينه فيمت وهو كافر فأولئك حبطت أعمالهم في الدنيا والآخرة And whoever of you reverts from his religion [to disbelief] and dies while he is a disbeliever - for ...

If you missed a Salat, for a reason, like you slept through it, or you forgot it, or something. Then you can make it up. but, if someone leaves salat altogether, out of laziness or not wanting to make it, then he/she is a kafir. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: العهد الذي بيننا وبينهم الصلاة، فمن تركها فقد كفر That which ...

Should one refuse medication when one believes he is being punished by Allah? Absolutely not. You should seek any type of medical treatment available. The Prophet of Allah, Mohamed son of Abdullah said = تَدَاوَوْا فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ لَمْ يَضَعْ دَاءً إِلاَّ وَضَعَ لَهُ دَوَاءً غَيْرَ دَاءٍ وَاحِدٍ الْهَرَمُ Translation = Make use of ...

Jahannam (Hellfire) is not eternal for all those who enter it. Some stay in there forever and ever, and some are admitted into Jannah after they have fulfilled their punishment period. Satan is of the group that stays there forever and ever. It follows that Jahannam is eternal. Eternity in Hellfire There are numerous verses about a group of people staying ...

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 ...

Since he was Muslim all the time he is subject to the procedure in place in Islam for such cases as described in Quran and Sunnah. The need for hard evidence and pure/proper witness is extremely important before taking any action. Any action taken must come from an islamic judge (which are kind of hard to find these days!)... As for "pious person" etc.: ...

According to Imam Muhammad-al-Taqi --peace be upon him-- only fingers should be amputated, since the Qur'an says, And the places of worship (المساجد) are for Allah (alone): So invoke not any one along with Allah [72:18] As we know there are seven places which should lie on the ground during prostration, and two of these seven places are the palms of ...

According to different Hadith from Imam Sadiq a.s. and other Ahl ul bayt there are 19 preconditions for amputating hand of a thief. If any of these preconditions are not met the hand should not be cut but still the thief has other punishments. Also, the cut of hand should be from end of fingers and the palm of hand should remain. According to The Twenty-...

Quran is very clear on this subject that good or bad deeds are not transferrable, as mentioned in Surah 35:18 And no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another. And if a heavily laden soul calls [another] to [carry some of] its load, nothing of it will be carried, even if he should be a close relative.... Surah 6:164 ... And every soul earns ...

At the initial step, I ought to mention that it doesn't justify your negative practice that you said "I curse a lot because i am surrounded by many teenagers who also curse a lot.". At the second step, as a Briefly speaking, generally cursing (using bad language or word) is considered as a bad act. It would be beneficial for you to pay attention to the ...

Bismillah, One of the main things that we as Muslims should do is to read the Tafseer of the Qur'an to have a better understanding of the verses and the rules. The verse that you referred to in your question is in Surat An-Nur (verse #3) is related to the previous verse in the same Sura. The adulteress and adulterer should be flogged a hundred lashes ...

Allah says: “Say: O my Servants who have transgressed against their souls! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah: for Allah forgives all sins: for He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” [Sûrah al-Zumar: 53] “And those who invoke not any other ilah (god) along with Allah, nor kill such a person as Allah has forbidden, except for just cause, nor commit ...

The very nature of a Tazeer punishment is that the punishment is not fixed and its upto the Qadi (judge) to impose something that will be sufficient as a deterrent while suiting the gravity of the crime. If the Qadi sentences the person to flogging, they can be no more than 10 lashes, according to this Hadith: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "No Punishment ...

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، ...
