Punishment of Zina
Assalamu alaikum,I am 29 years old married man. I have a beautiful girl child of 1.5 years old.My problem is that I was sexually abused by my nighbor during my childhood and as a result I am still getting attracted to men. I have had lot of sexual engagements with many men. I am learning qur'an by heart for 6 months now. I am punctual in doing my daily prayers & I fast on every thursday. Even after this I am continuing to have sex with men. I want to stop it now and here and I want to repent to Allah.How can the biggest sin of all get forgiven? I am planning to do Umrah in the coming Ramadan. I heard that doing Umrah n Ramadan is equivalent to a Haj. So will my sins be forgiven?Please pray for me & my family.Jazakallahu Khairan, -TK
Dear scholars, as-Salamu `alaykum. I have heard that the punishment specified for the person who commits adultery is 80 lashes. I would like to ask, from where did you get the punishment of stoning to death. Moreover, if you say that it is based on the Sunnah, I can say that how to depend on Sunnah in this regard. Isn’t it a fact that the Qur’an is the source of legislation for all Muslims? Jazakum Allah khayran.
