Asian housemaid gets death for adultery in Abu Dhabi

Asian housemaid gets death for adultery in Abu Dhabi

By Doha 2003

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.

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...

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.

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.

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

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.

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 !!!

By Baldwinmc• 7 years 5 months ago.

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

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.
