Yes its wrong but stoning a human is worst. How could another human think of doing such a act. This has to do with religion as the days go on we see more and more reasons why some religions are made for personal gain.

Under Iran's Islamic law, adultery is still theoretically punishable by stoning, which involves the public hurling stones at the convict buried up to his waist.

Under the punishment of stoning, a male convict is buried up to his waist with his hands tied behind his back, while a female offender is buried up to her neck with her hands also buried.

Interesting...i think its called the sharia law and muslims don't really have a problem following it in their Islamic countries.But its the 'sensitive West' that tells them whats right and whats wrong to follow.

sharia law=bad stuff

democracy=good stuff

I bet this thread is gona turn into 'islam bashing' for the next 50 odd pages.

Well i think how the world is run should be common sense really not all islamic people would think like all and not all westerners would think good it depends on the person and what he/she thinks is right true?.

Majority of muslims don't have a problem with following sharia law and trust me they like it more than democracy.

And if they like it than who are we to judge?

We have a problem in the West about Muslims following their ways and implementing their own laws through the legal system but than when they are back in their islamic countries,we still moan about their rules and laws.

I really don't get what the real problem is.Very confusing

So sad. & I think this goes with the Jesus times aswell..if Jesus didnt exist, we would be stoning people for adultery aswell now. So many of the founding fathers believed in the new testament. Or im probably wrong. LOL

Not that I believe in Jesus that is...

The Old Testament of Christianity, which is the Tanakh of the Jews and as such a common book of religious reference, prescribes death by stoning for a long series of offenses, including:



  1. Adultery (including an engaged woman having sex with a man other than her fiancé) (Deuteronomy 22:23-24)
  2. Having sex with animals ("bestiality")
  3. Engaging in idolatry or seducing others to do so
  4. Homosexual relations
  5. Breaking the Sabbath
  6. Cursing God
  7. If an ox gores a man or a woman to death, the ox shall surely be stoned and its flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the ox shall go unpunished. (Exodus 21-28)
  8. In addition, Deuteronomy (21,21) specifies that the parents of "a rebellious son" (בן סורר ומורה) may bring him to the market square and ask the townspeople to stone him to death.
  9. For touching Mount Sinai Exodus 19:13

Different strokes for different folks.

I had always thought/heard that the male involved in the sexual liason was usually given a lighter sentence, if any at all.

Have times changed, or was I just mis-informed?

I'm thinking the latter as I have done 0 research on the subject to back up what I believed to be true

Types Of Stoning In Countrys


Afghanistan - As most areas of Afghanistan, aside from the capital, Kabul, are controlled locally by warlords or tribal leaders, the Afghan legal system depends highly on an individual communities' local culture and the political and/or religious ideology of its leaders. Stoning also occurs in lawless areas, where vigilantes decide to commit the act for religious and/or political purposes



Iran - The Iranian judiciary has officially placed a moratorium on stoning, although the punishment remains on the books.[6] Stoning had occurred in Iran, for crimes including but not limited to adultery. "The penalty for adultery under Article 83 of the penal code, called the Law of Hodoud is flogging (100 lashes of the whip) for unmarried male and female offenders. Married offenders may be punished by stoning regardless of their gender. Exact figures cannot be found on numbers.



Pakistan - Islamic law in Pakistan still allows stoning as a form of punishment, however, no such executions have taken place in the country.



Saudi Arabia, Sudan, United Arab Emirates - Sentences to stoning or stonings without a sentence were also reported within the last years from Sudan, Saudi-Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
