Hadith Al-Nawawi Number 14: Three instances where Death Penalty is Allowed
1) If a Muslim commits Adultery.
(Note: To receive the punishment of adultery in an Islamic State is almost impossible. Notice I emphasized Islamic State. Because in order for any of these legislation’s to be put into place there must be an Islamic State. It is quite an oxymoron to even fathom that the laws of Islam can be implemented without the firm base of proper scholarship, judgment of learned men of the law, and establishment of an actual Islamic State. Without these necessary factors, these laws can not be applied. These laws can only be implemented alongside the foundations of an Islamic State that revolves around sound framework based upon the correct teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah. It is only after all aforementioned conditions are met; that there must be sound evidence, there must be witnesses, the witnesses must be four or more and The witnesses must be known to be truthful, and credible. Furthermore, if these conditions are not met in the proper Islamic State then the punishment can not be enforced.)
2) A life for a life.
(Note: The punishment for murder is the death penalty in an Islamic State. Just like the conditions stated above, there must be proper evidence, witnesses and proper information before carrying out the punishment upon the given individual.)
3) If a Muslim (While living under a proper Islamic State; that governs upon the moral and ethical guidelines of the Quran and Sunnah) decides to leave Islam and, on top of that commits crimes considered to be illegal, treason, murder, deliberate destruction of the peace or morals of the society; the punishment is death.
Can the Muslim be killed if they simply decided to leave Islam, peacefully? No.
Can the Muslim be killed if they declare a faith other than Islam? No.
The Quran and the Authentic Sayings of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) do not contradict. Prophet Muhammad lived by the Quran, acted according to the Quran, and judged according to the Quran. Let us see what the Quran has to say.
Proof from the Quran:
“There is no compulsion (force) in religion.” Quran 2:256
And say, “The truth is from your Lord, so whoever wills – let him believe; and whoever wills – let him disbelieve.” Quran 18:29
““Let there be no compulsion in religion. Truth has been made clear from error. Whoever rejects false worship and believes in God has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that never breaks. And God hears and knows all things.” (Quran 2:256)
“If it had been your Lord’s will, all of the people on Earth would have believed. Would you then compel the people so to have them believe?” (Quran 10:99)
“So if they dispute with you, say ‘I have submitted my whole self to God, and so have those who follow me. And say to the People of the Scripture and to the unlearned: ‘Do you also submit yourselves?’ If they do, then they are on right guidance. But if they turn away, your duty is only to convey the Message. And in God’s sight are all of His servants.” (Quran 3:20)
“The Messenger’s duty is but to proclaim the Message.” (Quran 5:99)
We have appointed a law and a practice for every one of you. Had Allah willed, He would have made you a single community, but He wanted to test you regarding what has come to you. So compete with each other in doing good. Every one of you will return to Allah and He will inform you regarding the things about which you differed. (Surat al-Ma’ida, 48)
[Say]: “You have your religion and I have my religion.” (Surah Al-Kafirun, 6)
