Asian housemaid gets death for adultery in Abu Dhabi
An Abu Dhabi criminal court sentenced an Asian housemaid to stoning to death after she was found guilty of committing adultery while married.
The maid had been rushed to hospital following abdominal pains and tests showed she was pregnant after sleeping with another man.
Newspapers said the maid confessed in court that she committed adultery and the judge handed down the sentence on the basis of her confession in line with Islamic law.
It was the first time in many years that a person was sentenced to stoning to death in such a case in the UAE. Judicial sources said the maid can appeal the sentence.
What if the man was married, does that mean he should then be stoned?
It doesn't say in the article whether or not he was single or married (or punished at all).
Too many people in your religion wanting people dead, whatever happened to love your fellow man, tolerance and forgiveness. Just goes to prove being an atheists is the most humane thing you can be
Rippy...whatever...I want her dead for her mistake.....mk...that was rippy paid chamchas
cataplayboy is missing today maybe got deleted by our Respected MODS
Well in that case Sharia is a crime against humanity.
Rippy...she deserves to be stoned as per sharia...yeah as per sharia
Seriously boxe, you must be trolling. No reasonable civilised person would support stoning a woman to death and a few lashes for the man. How about you preaching forgiveness or does you and your religion like to be soaked in blood?
Cata...go n save her..but I prefer she be stoned as per sharia and that man be lashed
Lol... cata playboy, that sounds true
Cata..still here..go n save her...run now
Everything that was written in any of the human languages that exist now or existed in the past.
Rip..what was written by men
Well if it is obviously wrong you need to change. No country's laws stay the same or we would still be burning witches or nailing people to crosses. (You and I know it was written by men and developed over the first two centuries of Islam's existence so don't hide behind barbarity)
I thought the reposte to being accussed of Islamic Terrorism that they are misguided and Islam is the religion of peace.
Stoning someone to death in a barbaric act of cruetly is strange version of peace I am not aware of.
I think it is time for Islam to update their books.
khali..he is not as great as beloved prophet...we do not follow a scientist but the sunnah of our rasool
yasir khalliwalli is not stable due to hig temperature in Gulf Country making him write various theories and opinions ..................
she is a muslim...and she is getting punishment as per sharia...period
share your opinion what is the point of sharing someone else opinion...
who is this scientist...i follow sunnah of our Prophet Muhammad (saw)
@khaliwali: what you are doing in arab country if you hate Arabs ?
Anyone living in a country should follow the rules and regulatons of the country even though you dont like it personally
bald...no need...leave it to abudhabi...i wll parcel a stone...lol
Boxbe i know where some stones are sold, i can tell u and u can buy and go ahead and stone her....
bald...wil ask abudhabi court and come...the public i believe or god know who
so who is going to stone her?
khaliwali...no wonder it is the fastest growing religion..and no one cares what u say
bald..she is muslim from indonesia
It must not be practiced on someone who is not muslim, it is better to chase her away to their country and not allow them back than kill her... maybe she has a children, and maybe the husband doesnt want her dead... Even if it is sharia law it does not make it perfect...
Bald...dont tell me...it is sharia law..and yes we as muslim need to follow what islam tells..period
And how many times do we get our luv, trust etc killed? So should we kill everyone who betrays us? is that how Allah operates?
Boxbe thats kinda wierd to kill someone over that, if it was the husband who made the decision it is better. Mybe the husband would forgive her
SHE Murdered her husband love, trust etc
Who gave the right? and y should we support killing someone? She did not commit murder!
she did not kill any one..then how will she face her husband..she already killed her husband by this act
those supporting this stoning, do you mean if we gave you stones you would lift your hand and throw the stone at her until she dies?
She did not kill any 1 and this is barbaric... people do repent and learn from mistakes, noone has the Right to take life... NOONE
cata....what was ur previous id
Welcome RIP long time no see ...................
cata..dont get frustrated here...go and save her
Religion poisons everything and Mr Box is the cheerleader of death
SILVER..she admitted she did wrong..where is the man that is the question..and she did in hosh o awaz
Jaw dropping,Brutal and thoroughly Insane.....How could anyone watch a poor soul die a slow incredibly painful death???
cata...go and save her
And if UAE is strictly following sharia, why don't they ban liquor in the country? why do they serve them in emirates and Etihad, or allow bars to operate in the country, especially in 5 star hotels? why do all their banks, like any other banks, give and take interest? either you follow and implement sharia law completely or just do not follow.
Barbaric, Inhuman and Disgusting, UAE = Saudi
Dear All, Everyone is right in their point of view, but in the end the lady will suffer and we urge the Embassy should fight for it to protect their people. Did anyone find out who is that culprit did that mistake with that lady, is he from her same nation or local guy. Everyone should be equally punish, but not in this way (stoning to death) I fully agree with friends URSTRULYASH & SPIDERMAN 80
Zina (Arabic: الزناء) is extramarital sex in Islam. Islamic law prescribes punishments for men and women for the act of Zina. Zina is committed when a muslim man and women who are not married have any kind of sexual relations with each other. Zina does not just mean having sex with each other but according to hadiths looking into eyes of the person is also Zina. Anything leading to the actual of sex is considered Zina. Hence having any kind of such relation with a person of opposite sex is stictly forbiden in Islam. Islam does not allow one to have girlfriends or boyfriends irrespective of the fact of whether you are married or not.
This punishment is considered to be for the protection of men and women and their rights to each other. Islamic culture respects marriage, and has provisions to protect that institution. Islam forbids any relations out of marriage. Zina is consider amongst one of the greatest sins in Islam, whether it is before marriage or after marriage. According to Zina, in addition to the punishments rendered before death, sinners will be punished severely after death.
Extramarital sexual intercourse may be punished by up to 100 lashes, while adultery is punished by Rajm (stoning), according to some interpretations of the Islamic law. Punishment by stoning is not specified in the Quran for any crime, and is based solely upon hadith.
galinda...unfortunately u did not get the meaning of zina...zina is done by a married man or a married woman..that is call zina
Is the punishment for Zina different for men and women? I thought it was the same.
with another man...he should be un married and get the meaning for adultery..she did when she had a husband and still committed the crime..that guy would get lashes
spiderman...whose kid is that and why r u missing the point..she admitted she did adultery
@Galinda : i guess he wil b awarded Oscar for Special performance :(((
I didn't see anything in the story about the punishment for the man.
Will he be stoned to death?
@Spiderman & urstrulyash : Absolutely Correct :))
disgusting , from camels to cars , nothing else changed in this world
I hope they do the same when an Emirati is also caught for adultery. Agree its sharia and adultery is punishable offence, but it should be applied to everybody equally in a practicing country, not just poor helpless expats.
Totally disgusting... how can you kill someone for something that million people do every day without any punishment all across the world....the worst part is that she probably was raped too.... she is probably poor.. from a country that does not care for its citizens.. she is voiceless and there is nobody to stand up for her....i did not expect that from UAE.. what a shame !!!
Nomad..what about the lady act
death by stoning is barbaric, period.
rainbow...it is sharia..nothing barbaric...she should have known before doing such dirty act
No one is perfect. Why to stone? Still living in the era of stone age? Let her send back to the place where she belong.
should it serve as sample to those who are . . . . .
Barbaric, Inhuman and Disgusting.
if its true she deserves to be stoned as per sharia
may god help her and forgive her..hope she wins the appeal and is let off..
