Misconception : Does Islam Allowed Stoning To Death ?Bismillah Hir Rehman Ir Raheem

Zina (fornication, adultery) is a serious crime and a major sin which takes away the quality of faith from a person, and exposes him to punishment and humiliation unless he repents. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“And come not near to unlawful sex. Verily, it is a Faahishah (i.e. anything that transgresses its limits: a great sin, and an evil way that leads one to hell unless Allaah Forgives him)” [al-Isra’ 17:32]
Some people have a misconception that 'stoning to death' is a punishment laid out in The Quran or promoted by Islam for acts such as adultery.
However, Stoning to death is never allowed by the Quran for an adulter. Moreover Quran also states the punishment for an adulter:
Quran says in Surah Nur chapter 24 verse 1-2:
1.[This is] a surah which We have sent down and made [that within it] obligatory and revealed therein verses of clear evidence that you might remember.
2.The [unmarried] woman or [unmarried] man found guilty of sexual intercourse - lash each one of them with a hundred lashes, and do not be taken by pity for them in the religion of Allah , if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a group of the believers witness their punishment.
The Quran never sanctions stoning to death as a punishment for anyone. In fact, the only times it is mentioned in The Quran is as a threat to believers from non-believers
Read These Verses : 11:91, 18:20, 36:18, 44:20, 26:116
Quran says in 26:116:
"They said, "If you do not desist(refrain), O Noah, you will surely be of those who are stoned."
So We can See that The Quran had Nothing to Do with Stoning An adulter, Where as it also prescribed Punishment for an adulter.
Also, Interestingly, in many popular translations of The Quran, for verse 24:3 they state an adulterer can only marry another adulterer, but if stoning to death for adultery was a punishment, this translation would be unecessary and illogical.
Stoning to Death In Hadith:
There are a few Muslims who do propagate, based upon a “re-reported narrative” called Hadeeth that the Second Caliph (successor to the Prophet) had said in one of his sermons that there used to be a Revealed Verse for “Death” by stoning but it has since been lost and is not to be found in “The Holy Book”.
I wish to inform these propagators that this is a fundamentally faulty narrative – Hadeeth. Here are the indisputable facts from the Islamic history to substantiate my remark.
i) The Second Caliph died in 644 CE
ii) The Revelations that came to the Prophet were collected and compiled in a book form by the Third Caliph.
iii) This final compilation of the Holy Book (al-Qur’an) was done in 651 CE (i.e. seven years after the death of the Second Caliph). In defies logic that a person could have passed such a remark for “The BOOK”, which was compiled years after his death.
iv) Even if one was to entertain the notion that the Second Caliph had indeed made such a serious statement in public concerning the Qur’an, then it could not have escaped the notice of his successor who undertook the task of compilation.
v) It is inconceivable that not a single member of the Commission, appointed for the compilation of “The Holy Book” did not hear that Sermon nor its narrative. To say that the Third Caliph and/or the Commission knew of the “Lost Verse” and yet ignored the allegations and did not include that verse is to say that they all were totally incompetent.

However Prophet Stoned Jews According To their Law:
Bukhari Hadith No. 4.829: When a Jew and a Jewess who had committed the illegal sexual intercourse were brought before the Prophet (s.a.s.), he ordered them to be punished according to their Jewish laws that are recorded in the Torah. The couple was stoned to death. This Hadith was narrated by Abdullah bin Umar.
Punishment for an Adulter According To Jewish Law:
Deuteronomy 22.22 "If a man be found lying with a woman married to a husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman and the woman; so shalt thou put away evil from Israel"
As you can see, according to Islam the real Islam, God order 100 lashes as penalty for adultery if no regret was showed. Never stoning. The prophet allowed stoning of the adultery Jews because according to Islam Jews are allow to be judge by their laws and not by Islamic laws.
I dedicate this article to the people that were victim of this horrible crime against Humanity and Islam.
I published these for Sunni Muslims and Shia Muslims who are so ignorant that they are still killing men and women using these laws. Jews must have find better interpretation of these punishment because they don’t have stoning to death punishment. Sunni Muslims must open their minds all around the world specially the religious scholars who try to justify these punishment with their unintelligent illogical arguments. Shame on all those who support this cruel punishment.
