As-Salamu `Alaykum. Nowadays, there is much controversy concerning legal penalties and the application of the Islamic Shari`ah (Law) especially in Muslim countries that have just started implementing it. My question: Is applying legal penalties the main goal of the message of Islam? Should these fixed penalties be applied in a society that is still immature for such legal system? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear scholars, as-salamu `alaykum. Do the prescribed penalties set by Shari`ah correspond to the crimes committed or not? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu. The Qur'an says that Muslims are the community that 'commands the right and fobids the wrong' and Islamic law has the hudud penalties for crimes such as Zina. However, Muslims in non-Muslim countries cannot enforce these penalties? Is it permissible for Muslims to abandon them in non-Muslim countries? How can Muslims command the right and forbid the wrong when living as minorities in non-Muslim countries?
