ISIS, The Koran, and The Hudud

ISIS crucifies Christians, kills apostates (those who leave Islam), and amputates the hands of those who steal.


How do they justify such barbaric behavior?

These cruel punishments are commands from allah in the Koran.


The Hudud is a part of sharia (Islamic Law), and contains the seven (7) crimes specifically listed in the Koran along with their punishments.  If it is in the Koran, according to Islam, it is the word of allah as revealed to Mohammad.

Punishments for hudud crimes are fixed and, therefore, cannot be altered by an Islamic judge’s ruling.

Four of the seven offenses are punishable by death.  They include fornication, adultery, armed robbery, and rebellion.


For instance, for armed robbery Koran 5:33 states:  “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and his messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land.”

The other hudud crimes include punishments for:  fornication (sex outside of marriage) for which Koran 24:2 prescribes “The woman and the man guilty for fornication flog each of them with a hundred lashes: let not compassion move you in their case in a matter prescribed by Allah”; false accusation of sexual intercourse; drinking intoxicants; and theft.

On September 24, 2014, an open letter to the leader of ISIS Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi signed by 126 Islamic leaders, including senior scholars across the globe, was published.

The letter stated:  “Hudud punishments are fixed in the Qur’an and Hadith and are unquestionably obligatory in Islamic Law.”

The signatories included leaders of prominent U.S. Islamic organizations including:  the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) also known as Hamas; the Fiqh Council of North America; the North American Imams Federation; and others.

Its in the Koran, which means allah said it.  U.S. Islamic leaders condone it.  ISIS does it.

What is all the fuss about?

    Items 2 & 7 comprise the core of what the so-called aberrational “Executive Summary” seeks to achieve: I.e. “2” tacitly assures the usually supportive occupational cast listed in “7” of continued immunity from physical harm at the hands of jihadists as long as they maintain their unquestioning acceptance of the threadbare “classic Arabic” thesis — I.e. a language which even 90% of all Muslims can’t even read, thus must rely solely on maniacs preaching non-Muslim hate in the thousands of mosques, and elsewhere, worldwide. In a word, as usual, call it “CONTROL”.

    In the aftermath of it’s defeat in 1071 by Normans under the command of Roger Basso, when the Islamic Emirate (State) of Sicily [831-1072, capital Palermo] was superseded by the “County” of Sicily, Muslims remained citizens of the ensuing multi-ethnic county until the 1240s, I.e. when those who had not yet converted to Christianity were expelled.

    Thus, as one may expect, a lingering influence of the Arabic language on the Sicilian language – mainly respecting agricultural terms – has remained. Albeit, one puzzling non-specific exception reminiscent of “The Hudud” with regard to punitive barbarity also exists I.e. the Arabic word “Mafia”: I.e. Swagger or boldness/bravado (from mahyas “aggressive boasting, bragging or marfud “rejected”.

    Said etymology is based on the books, “Mafioso” by Gaia Servadio; “The Sicilian Mafia” by Diego Gambetta, and “Cosa Nostra” by John Dickie,

  5. Hello JG, Thank you for this article. New term to learn Hudud. The gruesome penalties used by Isis, and other terror groups have a source in Islam, which I understand, I understand also it is also denied by the administration which misdirects the minds of many….if Loretta Lynch gets her way, it could soon be criminalized. That the many mb organizations (that you have studied and reported) continue to spread the mosques and deception really points out why deception was made obligatory and really was necessary,clever and devious.

    Obama at the Baltimore mosque….denial and misdirection from the highest office, another “whats is all the fuss about’?
    As you say, “Its in the Koran, which means allah said it. U.S. Islamic leaders condone it. ISIS does it.”

    This letter says it all, Obama protects terror.

  7. Meanwhile, many of our political leaders look the other way and disregard the punishments sanctioned by Sharia laws as if they could never happen in this country. Some have already been carried out, such as honor killings. Contrary to what the public is being told, Islam does NOT mean “peace” ; it means Submission, and it appears that our liberal media and current political agenda has already submitted to the treasonous doctrines of Islam being an accepted ideology in America.
