Al NoorMajlis Atfalul Ahmadiyya Inner ParkSummary of the topic, addressed at the Tarbiyyat Forum on Sunday, 23rd JanuaryPunishment of Theft in Islam“These are the limits set by Allah, so approach them not. Thus, does Allah make His commandments clear to menso that they may become secure against evil.” (2:188)The Holy Quran provides specific punishments for only four offences, that is, adultery, slandering, murder and theft.These offences appear to have been selected to indicate that life, family institution, property, honour and social orderhave to be protected.A cursory glance is enough to realise the horrific, extensive and extremely profound impact these crimes have uponsociety and as a result of not taking appropriate measures to check and prevent them, society is ruined and destroyed.In fact, these are the four crimes which have dominated society and are responsible for most of the sufferingand misery that is witnessed in the world today.“And as for the man who steals and the woman who steals, cut off their hands in retribution of their offence as anexemplary punishment from Allah. And Allah is Mighty, Wise.” (5:39)As far as the structure of society is concerned, Islam builds it on simple living, truth, righteousness and abstinencefrom absurdities of life and senseless customs. Islam establishes a society which is pure of such frolics and has theleast causes which could be held responsible to tempt someone to steal. These are the aspects of the society whichirrespective of religion or belief are to be observed by every subject of an Islamic State.As far as Muslims are concerned, there is emphasis on worship and purity of heart and sight, and the moral teachingprovides details regarding obligations to humans.In the light of all that, if the residents of a country are truly Muslims, the thought of stealing should be unimaginable.However, it is sad that in the real situation, such a scenario is difficult to present. The Muslim States have sadly becomethe hubs and breeding grounds of evil crime, fraud and falsehood, let alone theft and robbery.In these circumstances, there can be no better punishment than the one imposed by Islam, that is, the punishmentof cutting the hands. Such a punishment becomes a warning indicator and a deterrent for others.Moreover, this punishment has a very powerful effective force for the prevention of stealing.In the early history of Islam, there there were extremely rare cases of the cutting of the hands since the prescribedpunishment was put in place, primarily as a deterrent. Consequently, there were hardly any thieves. But when onewas caught, he was dealt with scrupulously and the punishment enforced rigidly. The Holy Prophet (Peace andblessings of Allah be upon him) strictly forbade allowance of any concession or favour in the matter of ‘hadd’ punishmentswithout any distinction.We are told in a hadith, narrated by Hadrat Ayesha (ra), that a woman from a noble family once committed theft. TheQuraish were very embarrassed and disturbed by the incident. They sent Osama bin Zaid to the Holy Prophet toseek forgiveness for the woman. Huzur (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was deeply offended and said,‘How dare you intercede in the matter of limits fixed by Allah?’ Hudur stood up and said: ‘People before you weredestroyed because when a prominent and influential person committed theft he was not apprehended and when anordinary person committed theft he was given the severest punishment! By God, if the daughter of Muhammad(Peace be upon him) committed theft, I shall cut her hands and not allow any concession at all!’ (Muslim Kitab AlHudoodBa’ab Qata Assariq)For the punishment of cutting the hands of a thief, Islam has also laid down limits on conditions such as that the stolengoods should not be edible on which the sustenance of life depends or pilfering or lifting. For such offences someother form of befitting punishment is meted out.The philosophy of punishments in Islam indicates that Islam provides punishment only as a last resort with the purposeof reform brought about through a blending of human values and justice tempered with mercy. Encouragingforgiveness where it is likely to reform and improve things, providing severe punishment where there is clear disregardand exceeding the limit of lawAl Noor Newsletter 9
