Brief Comments on Riyaadh al-Saaliheen #5

Punishment for adultery

بـسـم الله والحـمـد لله والـصلاة والـسـلام عــلى رسـول الله، وبـعـد

Shaikh Ibn al-`Uthaymeen رحمه الله said:

“And this is from the Hikmah (Wisdom) of Allaah عز وجل; He تعالى did not legislate that a married person who commits adultery (either a man or a woman) be killed with a (single stroke of a) sword and that the matter is closed (quickly); but rather (He تعالى legislated) that they be stoned till they get the punishment (i.e. death) and that they taste (suffer) the pain (in recompense) for the pleasure that they enjoyed through the Haraam means. This is because this adulterer’s whole body took pleasure in this Haraam, so it is from the Wisdom (of Allaah تعالى) that the whole body obtains the punishment as much as it received the pleasure.”

[Sharh Riyaadh al-Saaliheen (1/167)]
