Enormities: Charging A Woman Who Could Be Chaste With Adultery

This is another article in the chapter Enormities from the classical manual on Sharia called Reliance of the Traveller. The articles are posted one by one in the order they are given in the book.

p18.0 CHARGING A WOMAN WHO COULD BE CHASTE (def: 013.2) WITH ADULTERY
pI8.I Allah Most High says:
(1) “Those who accuse believing women, unmindful though innocent, are cursed in this world and the next and shall receive a painful torment”
(Koran 24:23).
(2) “Those who accuse innocent women without producing four witnesses, scourge them eighty stripes” (Koran 24:4).
p18.2 The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “Avoid the seven heinous sins … ” and he mentioned charging believing women, unmindful though innocent, with adultery.
pIS.3 As for someone who accuses the Mother of the Faithful’ A’isha of adultery after the revelation from heaven of her innocence (Koran 24:11-12), such a person is an unbeliever (kafir) denying the Koran and must be killed.
