“Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah Al-Ansari: A man from the tribe of Bani Aslam came to Allah’s Apostle and Informed him that he had committed illegal sexual intercourse and bore witness four times against himself. Allah’s Apostle ordered him to be stoned to death as he was a married Person.” — Bukhari 8.82.805
“Narrated Abu Huraira: A man came to Allah’s Apostle while he was in the mosque, and he called him, saying, ‘O Allah’s Apostle! I have committed illegal sexual intercourse.’ The Prophet turned his face to the other side, but that man repeated his statement four times, and after he bore witness against himself four times, the Prophet called him, saying, ‘Are you mad?’ The man said, ‘No.’ The Prophet said, ‘Are you married?’ The man said, ‘Yes.’ Then the Prophet said, ‘Take him away and stone him to death.’ Jabir bin ‘Abdullah said: I was among the ones who participated in stoning him and we stoned him at the Musalla. When the stones troubled him, he fled, but we over took him at Al-Harra and stoned him to death.” — Bukhari 8.82.806
Shooting her in the head rather than stoning her to death is an innovation. Nonetheless, this is yet another Sharia Alert from Afghanistan: “Taliban execute pregnant woman,” from AFP, August 9 (thanks to Kenneth):
The Taliban publicly flogged and then executed a pregnant Afghan widow by emptying three shots into her head for alleged adultery, police say.
Bibi Sanubar, 35, was kept in captivity for three days before she was shot dead in a public trial on Sunday by a local Taliban commander in the Qadis district of the rural western province Badghis.
The Taliban accused Sanubar of having an “illicit affair” that left her pregnant.
She was first punished with 200 lashes in public before being shot, deputy provincial police chief Ghulam Mohammad Sayeedi told AFP on Monday.
“She was shot in the head in public while she was still pregnant,” Sayeedi said….
The radical Islamists staged public stonings or lashings of those found to have committed adultery or sex outside marriage.
The then-Taliban government would also chop off the hands and feet of those accused of theft and robbery.
…in accord with Qur’an 5:38.
