Mali: Unmarried couple stoned to death for violating Islamic law, from JihadWatch.org, with comments

“During their brief control of key towns in the vast north, jihadist groups imposed a version of Sharia law which forced women to wear veils and set whipping, stoning and mutilation as punishment for transgressions.”

There is no version of Sharia law that does not require women to wear veils and doesn’t prescribe whipping, stoning and mutilation as punishment for transgressions. There are Muslim countries that don’t implement Sharia punishments or enforce Sharia restrictions upon women. But those countries are not operating according to some “moderate” form of Sharia. There is no such form of Sharia, except in the fantasies of Western non-Muslims.

The punishment this couple received is based on Islamic law, as codified from several ahadith. The caliph Umar, one of Muhammad’s closest companions, maintained that the punishment of death for adultery was originally in the Qur’an:

‘Umar said, “I am afraid that after a long time has passed, people may say, “We do not find the Verses of the Rajam (stoning to death) in the Holy Book,” and consequently they may go astray by leaving an obligation that Allah has revealed. Lo! I confirm that the penalty of Rajam be inflicted on him who commits illegal sexual intercourse, if he is already married and the crime is proved by witnesses or pregnancy or confession.” Sufyan added, “I have memorized this narration in this way.” ‘Umar added, “Surely Allah’s Apostle carried out the penalty of Rajam, and so did we after him.” (Bukhari, vol. 8, bk. 82, no. 816)

“Allah’s Apostle” is, of course, Muhammad, who did indeed carry out stonings. Here is the hadith in which he challenges the rabbis about stoning, and in which there is amidst the barbarism and brutality a final act of love and compassion:

The Jews came to Allah’s Apostle and told him that a man and a woman from amongst them had committed illegal sexual intercourse. Allah’s Apostle said to them, “What do you find in the Torah (old Testament) about the legal punishment of Ar-Rajm (stoning)?” They replied, (But) we announce their crime and lash them.” Abdullah bin Salam said, “You are telling a lie; Torah contains the order of Rajm.” They brought and opened the Torah and one of them solaced his hand on the Verse of Rajm and read the verses preceding and following it. Abdullah bin Salam said to him, “Lift your hand.” When he lifted his hand, the Verse of Rajm was written there. They said, “Muhammad has told the truth; the Torah has the Verse of Rajm. The Prophet then gave the order that both of them should be stoned to death. (‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar said, “I saw the man leaning over the woman to shelter her from the stones.” (Bukhari, vol. 4, bk. 56, no. 829)

Even the monkeys practiced stoning, according to another hadith:

During the pre-lslamic period of ignorance I saw a she-monkey surrounded by a number of monkeys. They were all stoning it, because it had committed illegal sexual intercourse. I too, stoned it along with them. (Bukhari, vol. 5, bk. 58, no. 188)

Muhammad’s example is, of course, normative for Islamic behavior, since “truly in the messenger of Allah you have an excellent example for him who looks to Allah and the Last Day, and remembers Allah much” (Qur’an 33:21).

“Unmarried Mali couple stoned to death for violating ‘Islamic law,’” Agence France-Presse, May 18, 2017:

An unmarried couple were stoned to death in public in northeast Mali by “Islamists”, local officials revealed, the first such incident since jihadist groups were driven out of the region.

Jihadists seized key northern cities in March 2012, and though they were driven out by a French-led military intervention in 2013, Islamist groups continue to make their presence felt with frequent attacks on domestic and foreign forces.

“The Islamists dug two holes where they put the man and the woman who lived maritally without being married,” said a local official. “They were stoned to death.”

The stoning happened in Taghlit on Tuesday, close to Aguelhok in the Kidal region, and the same source told AFP that members of the public were invited to take part.

“Four people threw stones at them until they died,” they said.

Another local official said the Islamists had accused the unmarried couple of violating “Islamic law”, which requires punishment by stoning.

During their brief control of key towns in the vast north, jihadist groups imposed a version of Sharia law which forced women to wear veils and set whipping, stoning and mutilation as punishment for transgressions….

      95% of the population of Mali is Muslim. I imagine many of them are “Islamists”.

      It is not as though “Islamism”–a made up term–is actually different from Islam.

    Stoning is defended with the story of Mohammed stopping to join monkeys who stoned an adulterous monkey. Sane, rational people would not believe that there is such a thing as ‘marriage’ for monkeys, but Mohammedans are forced to believe this LUDICROUS rubbish because Mohammed taught it.

    Islam humiliates the mind and kills people who have committed no crime but to love one another.

    The contrast with the behaviour of Christ (St John 7.53-8.11) is telling. And more evidence that Mo was not a true prophet.

    Jesus said something else about the stoning. As far as I am concerned, islam is a pre-Christian pagan cult. Arabs were just retarded.

      And, notably, Jews no longer stoned people to death in Muhammed’s time, either.

      In fact, the vile “Prophet” and his followers condemn Jews for *not* stoning people to death, and reinstate the practice themselves.

    And that’s why Jesus said…
    “Let whoever is without sin cast the first stone”.
    The difference between our Lord Jesus Christ
    vs.
    moohuMAD the false “prophet” is almost perfectly analogous to the difference between prosperous peaceful civilized decent western JudeaoChristian Nations
    vs.
    dysfunctional tyrannical oppressive intolerant miserable violent isLIEmic fiefdom’s.
    moohuMAD threw out the peace & love of Jesus’ Gospels and added violence & perversion to suit his perversions & greed.
    The last page of the bible is as true today as ever:
    “Whoever adds to or removes from this holy book shall be cut from the tree of life and will suffer all the plagues named in this book”.
    And so the isLIEmic world festers like the pestilence and blight it is.

    Mali: Unmarried couple stoned to death for violating Islamic law
    …………………….

    These *poor people*. It seems that “Islamists” having been driven out of Mali is overly optimistic.

    Of course, this barbarism is orthodox Islam.

    The *only* example of tenderness I have found in all the Islamic texts I have read–the Qur’an, the Sira, and hundreds of Hadith–is this one:

    Sahih Bukhari Volume 8, Book 82, Number 809:
    Narrated Ibn ‘Umar:

    A Jew and a Jewess were brought to Allah’s Apostle on a charge of committing an illegal sexual intercourse. The Prophet asked them. “What is the legal punishment (for this sin) in your Book (Torah)?” They replied, “Our priests have innovated the punishment of blackening the faces with charcoal and Tajbiya.” ‘Abdullah bin Salam said, “O Allah’s Apostle, tell them to bring the Torah.” The Torah was brought, and then one of the Jews put his hand over the Divine Verse of the Rajam (stoning to death) and started reading what preceded and what followed it. On that, Ibn Salam said to the Jew, “Lift up your hand.” Behold! The Divine Verse of the Rajam was under his hand. So Allah’s Apostle ordered that the two (sinners) be stoned to death, and so they were stoned. Ibn ‘Umar added: So both of them were stoned at the Balat and and I saw the man bending over the woman so as to protect her from the stones.

    “I saw the man bending over the woman so as to protect her from the stones”.

    This act of tenderness, of course, is not from a Muslim, but from a *victim* of Muslim savagery.

    God, I hate Islam.

    A proper Islamic penalty for the “Unmarried couple” is a scourging. Clearly the killers of those unmarried adulterers are bound to either a Qisas of “life for life” or a Blood Money if they did it on the ignorant reason.
