Rape victim sentence changes, six months imprisonment and lashes increased to 200

Though the rapists' sentences have been increased to between two years and nine years' each, the verdict against the rape victim has been that she should now have her lashes increased to 200. Additionally, she must now be imprisoned for six months.

Her lawyer has also been punished. Judge Soliman Al-Muhanna from the Qatif court suspended him from the case, and confiscated his lawyers' license. He has now been summonsed by the Judicial Investigation Department of the Ministry of Justice to attend a disciplinary hearing.

He claimed: "Actually this is the second time they have contacted me. They claim that I advertise my services and that that is against Saudi law."

The rape victim was told by the judges at the General Court that her sentence had been increased because of "her attempt to aggravate and influence the judiciary through the media."

Obviously, as the media had reported on the case, it exposed an abuse of justice that the Saudi judiciary would rather happen in secret. And this is the same Saudi Arabia that recently lectured the European Union about "human rights".

The reason why the woman was alone in a car with a man was because he was her former boyfriend. They had arranged to meet as he was to hand over pictures he had of her. She had been due to marry another man. The woman was Shia - her rapists Sunni.

Lawyer Abdul Rahman Al-Lahem said: "My client is the victim of this abhorrent crime. I believe her sentence contravenes the Islamic Sharia law and violates the pertinent international conventions. The judicial bodies should have dealt with this girl as the victim rather than the culprit. The court blamed the girl for being alone with unrelated men, but it should have taken the humane view that it cannot be considered her fault."

    Does a woman have to defend herself against a would-be rapist?

    Does a woman have to defend herself if someone wants to rape her, and is she allowed to use a weapon for that purpose?


    Praise be to Allaah.

    A woman who is being forced to commit zinaa [unlawful sexual activity] is obliged to defend herself and should not give in even if she kills the one who wants to do that to her. This self-defence is waajib (obligatory), and she is not at fault if she kills the one who wants to force her into zinaa. Imaam Ahmad and Ibn Hibbaan reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever is killed defending his property is a shaheed (martyr), whoever is killed defending himself is a shaheed, whoever is killed defending his religion is a shaheed, and whoever is killed defending his family is a shaheed.” In the commentary on this hadeeth it says: “whoever is killed defending his family is a shaheed” refers to the one who defends the honour of his wife and female relatives.

    If a man is obliged to defend his wife and fight off the one who wants to rape her – even if this leads to his own death – then this obligation applies even more to the woman herself, who must defend herself and not give in to the aggressor who wants to violate her honour, even if she is killed, because if she is killed she will also be a shaheedah, just as her husband will be a shaheed if he was killed defending her honour. Shahaadah (martyrdom, the status of shaheed) is a high status which is only achieved by the one who dies in the way of obedience to Allaah and that which He loves, which indicates that Allaah loves this kind of defence, a man’s fighting to defend his wife’s honour and a woman’s fighting to defend herself. But if she is unable to defend herself, and the evil aggressor overpowers her and rapes her by force, then she should not be subjected to any punishment (hadd or ta’zeer); rather, the punishment should be carried out on the evil aggressor.

    It says in al-Mughni by Ibn Qudaamah al-Hanbali: “Concerning a woman who was pursued by a man, and she killed him to protect herself, Ahmad said: ‘If she knew that he wanted [to rape] her, and she killed him to protect herself, then she is not at fault.’ Ahmad mentioned the hadeeth which al-Zuhri reported from al-Qaasim ibn Muhammad, from ‘Ubayd ibn ‘Umayr, in which it said that a man had visitors from [the tribe of] Hudhayl, and he wanted [to rape] a woman, so she threw a rock at him and killed him. ‘Umar said, ‘By Allaah, there is no diyah for him ever’ i.e., she did not have to pay the ‘blood money’ for him. If it is permissible to defend one's money, which one can give away, then a woman defending and protecting herself and her honour which cannot be given away, is clearly more permissible than a man defending his money. If this is clear, then she is obliged to defend herself if she can, because letting someone overpower her [rape her] is haraam, and by not defending herself, she lets him overpower her.” [al-Mughni, 8/331]

    And Allaah knows best. Al-Mufassal fi Ahkaam al-Mar’ah, 5/42-43.

    Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in al-Turuq al-Hukmiyyah, 18: “(Section) … A woman who had committed zinaa was brought to ‘Umar ibn al-Khattaab (may Allaah be pleased with him), and he asked her about it and she admitted it, so he commanded that she should be stoned. ‘Ali said: ‘Maybe she had a reason.’ So he said to her, ‘What made you do that?’ She said, ‘I had a partner who shared livestock with me; his camels had water and milk, and mine had none. I got thirsty, so I asked him to give me something to drink, but he refused unless I let him have his way with me. I refused three times, but I was so thirsty that I thought I was going to die, so I gave him what he wanted, and he gave me something to drink.’ ‘Ali said: ‘Allaahu akbar! “… But if one is forced by necessity without wilful disobedience nor transgressing due limits, then there is no sin on him. Truly Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” [al-Baqarah 2:173 – interpretation of the meaning].’”

    In Sunan al-Bayhaqi it says: “From Abu ‘Abd al-Rahmaan al-Sulami, who said: ‘A woman was brought to ‘Umar who had been extremely thirsty, and had passed by a shepherd and asked him to give her something to drink; he had refused to give her something to drink unless she let him have his way with her. [‘Umar] consulted with the people as to whether he should have her stoned. ‘Ali said, ‘She was forced to do it. I think you should let her go.’ So he did so. I say: this is what should be done. If a woman is in desperate need of food and drink from a man, which he will not give her unless she lets him have his way with her, and she is scared that she will die without them, so she lets him have his way with her, then she is not to be punished. If it were asked, is it permissible for her in this situation to let him have his way with her, or does she have to suffer [her hunger and thirst] with patience, even if she dies? The answer is that her case is like that of a woman who is forced to commit zinaa, to whom it is said, ‘Either you let me have my way with you, or I will kill you.’ The woman who is forced to do this should not be punished; she can save herself from being killed in this manner, but if she bears it (i.e., being killed) with sabr (patience), this is better for her. (But she does not have to put up with with being killed). And Allaah knows best.”

    "Those who disbelieve spend their wealth in distracting people from the right path, will continue to spend until it becomes a source of regret for them and then they will be overcome. And the disbelievers will be resurrected towards Hellfire so that Allaah may distinguish the evil from the righteous"

    "They suffer neither thirst nor fatigue, nor hunger in the Cause of Allaah, nor they take any step to raise the anger of disbelievers nor inflict any injury upon an enemy but is written to their credit as a deed of righteousness. Surely, Allaah wastes not the reward of the righteous"(At-Tawbah, 9:120)

    O disbeliever, we debate with you in the words addressed by Allaah (the Arabic name of the One True God) to the People of the Book (Jews and Christians) and the disbelievers. He says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “O People of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Do not exceed the limits in your religion, nor say of Allaah aught but the truth. The Messiah ‘Eesa (Jesus) son of Maryam (Mary) was (no more than) a Messenger of Allaah and His Word (‘Be!’ – and he was), which He bestowed on Maryam, and a spirit created by Him; so believe in Allaah and His Messengers. Say not: ‘Three (trinity)!’ Cease! (it is) better for you. For Allaah is (the only) One (God). Glory be to Him (Far Exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allaah is All-Sufficient as a Disposer of Affairs.”

    [al-Nisa’ 4:171]

    “Say: O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Do you criticize us for no other reason than that we believe in Allaah, and in (the revelation) which has been sent down before (us), and that most of you are faasiqoon (rebellious and disobedient [to Allaah])?”

    [al-Maa’idah 5:59]

    “How can you disbelieve in Allaah? Seeing that you were dead and He gave you life. Then He will give you death, then again will bring you to life (on the Day of Resurrection) and then unto Him you will return.”

    [al-Baqarah 2:28]

    “… whosoever disbelieves in Allaah, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, and the Last Day, then indeed he has strayed far away…

    Verily, those who disbelieve in Allaah and His messengers and wish to make a distinction between Allaah and His Messengers (by believing in Allaah and disbelieving in His Messengers) saying, ‘We believe in some but not in others,’ and wish to adopt a way in between,

    They are in truth disbelievers. And We have prepared for the disbelievers a humiliating torment.”

    [al-Nisa’ 4:136, 150-151]

    O disbeliever, do you think that you can do any harm to Allaah by your disbelief? Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “… But if you disbelieve, then unto Allaah belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth, and Allaah is Ever Rich (Free of all wants), Worthy of all praise.” [al-Nisa’ 4:131]

    You will only increase in hatefulness and loss in the sight of Allaah, you disbeliever, for you are one of the worst of living creatures, as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “Verily, the worst of moving (living) creatures before Allaah are those who disbelieve, - so they shall not believe.”

    [al-Anfaal 8:55]

    O disbeliever, are you not going to die? Or do you doubt that as well? Do you know what your position will be when you die, if you die in a state of disbelief? Listen:

    “And if you could see when the angels take away the souls of those who disbelief (at death), they smite their faces and their backs, (saying): ‘Taste the punishment of the blazing Fire.’”

    [al-Anfaal 8:50]

    O disbeliever, woe to you from what will happen to you on the Day of Resurrection! Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “… so woe to the disbelievers from the meeting of a great Day (i.e., the Day of Resurrection, when they will be thrown in the blazing Fire).”

    [Maryam 19:37]

    We have an appointment with you after death, on the Day of Reckoning:

    “On that day those who disbelieved and disobeyed the Messenger [Muhammad SAWS (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)] will wish that they were buried in the earth, but they will never be able to hide a single fact from Allaah.”

    [al-Nisa’ 4:42]

    O disbeliever, do you know what Allaah has prepared for you if you die in a state of disbelief? Read:

    “And whosoever does not believe in Allaah and His Messenger [Muhammad SAWS (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)], then verily, We have prepared for the disbelievers a blazing Fire.”

    [al-Fath 48:13]

    “Verily, those who disbelieve, and die while they are disbelievers, it is they on whom is the Curse of Allaah and of the angels and mankind, combined.”

    [al-Baqarah 2:161]

    “Verily, those who disbelieved, and died while they were disbelievers, the (whole) earth full of gold will not be accepted from any one of them even if they offered it as a ransom. For them is a painful torment and they will have no helpers.”

    [Aal ‘Imraan 3:91]

    “Surely, those who reject Faith, neither their properties, nor their offspring will avail them aught against Allaah. They are the dwellers of the Fire, therein they will abide.”

    [Aal ‘Imraan 3:116]

    Do you know what you will have to drink in Hell if you die as a disbeliever? Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “… But those who disbelieved will have a drink of boiling fluids and painful torment because they used to disbelieve.”

    [Yoonus 10:5]

    Do you know what you will have to wear on that Day? Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “… Then as for those who disbelieve, garments of fire will be cut out for them, boiling water will be poured down over their heads.”

    [al-Hajj 22:19]

    Do you know what kind of punishment you will endure?

    “Surely! Those who disbelieved in Our Signs, We shall burn them in Fire. As often as their skins are roasted through, We shall change them for other skins that they may taste the punishment. Truly, Allaah is Ever Most Powerful, All-Wise.”

    [al-Nisa’ 4:56]

    “If only those who disbelieved knew (the time) when they will not be able to ward off the Fire from their faces, nor from their backs; and they will not be helped.”

    [al-Anbiya’ 21:39]

    O reviler, maybe on the Day of Judgement you will wish that you had been a Muslim in this world. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “Perhaps (often) will those who disbelieve wish that they were Muslims.”

    [al-Hijr 15:2]

    O disbeliever, you are among those who have disbelieved and done wrong. Allaah says concerning you and your like (interpretation of the meaning):

    “Verily those who disbelieve and do wrong, Allaah will not forgive them, nor will He guide them to any way”

    [al-Nisa’ 4:168]

    “Those who disbelieve and deny our signs are those who will be the dwellers of the Hell-fire.”

    [al-Maa’idah 5:10]

    There you will have no life, but neither will you be able to find any respite in death. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “But those who disbelieve, for them will be the Fire of Hell. Neither will it have a complete killing effect on them so that they die, nor shall its torment be lightened for them. Thus do We requite every disbeliever!”

    [Faatir 35:36]

    O disbeliever, have the glad tidings of a punishment from which you will not be able to ransom yourself:

    “Verily, those who disbelieve, if they had all that is in the earth, and as much again therewith to ransom themselves thereby from the torment on the Day of Resurrection, it would never be accepted of them, and theirs would be a painful torment.”

    [al-Maa’idah 5:36]

    O disbeliever, if you want to mock Islam and its followers, this is nothing new:

    “Beautified is the life of this world for those who disbelieve, and they mock at those who believe. But those who obey Allaah’s Orders and keep away from what He has forbidden, will be above them on the Day of Resurrection. And Allaah gives (of His bounty on the Day of Resurrection) to whom He wills without limit.”

    [al-Baqarah 2:212]

    O disbeliever, if you think that the light of Islam will be extinguished, then you are living in a world of illusions. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “They (the disbelievers) want to extinguish Allaah’s Light with their mouths, but Allaah will not allow except that His Light should be perfected even though the disbelievers hate (it).”

    [al-Tawbah 9:32]

    O disbeliever, do you know that you are cursed if you do not submit to Allaah, so save yourself from this curse:

    “Verily, Allaah has cursed the disbelievers, and has prepared for them a flaming Fire (Hell).”

    [al-Ahzaab 33:64]

    There is still time for you to repent from sin and transgression, so long as you are still alive. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “Say to those who have disbelieved, if they cease (from disbelief) their past will be forgiven. But if they return (thereto), then the examples of those (punished) before them have already preceded (as a warning).”

    [al-Anfaal 8:38]

    Whoever is guided, then it is for his own benefit, and whoever disbelieves, then Allaah has no need of His creation. The curse of Allaah be upon the disbelievers.

    I dont know what you mean by sharia law.....but saudi arabia, home of mohammed , Prophet of Islam is dealing out the punishment...
    maybe you Maldivians have another interpretation.......

    "If within the city a man comes upon a maiden who is betrothed, and has relations with her, you shall bring them both out of the gate of the city and there stone them to death: the girl because she did not cry out for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbors wife." (Deuteronomy 22:23-24 NAB

    From this it is clear that it is the Bible which prescribes the killing of both the rapist and rape victim, but not Islam!!!

  8. Anonymous8:10 PM

    Hi Anonymous,

    Sharia means the law of God as far as I know. Although Saudi was the country our Prophet (May peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), it doesn't mean that everything done in the country will be correct!

    In order to know the teachings of Islam or any other religion you don't have to see the followers! Because most of the time the followers themselves don't know what their religion teach! I challenge you anyone to show me one evidence from the Qur'aan or Sunnah of Prophet(May peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) which prescribe a punishment for the rape victim!!! There is no punishment at all!

    We have done same with Christianity! Without seeing what the followers of Christianity do, we have seen their bible to know what christianity say about rape victim!

    "If within the city a man comes upon a maiden who is betrothed, and has relations with her, you shall bring them both out of the gate of the city and there stone them to death: the girl because she did not cry out for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbors wife." (Deuteronomy 22:23-24 NAB)

    So can you see, which religion actually prescribe killing of the rape victim?

    No on should believe what these enemies of Islam are saying! They have left Islam not because Islam is bad, but because of their lack of understanding of the correct teachings of Islam. See, one of these fools don't know the meaning of Sharia!!

    These fools don't know anything about Islam! Who can be more ignorant than these bunch of pervets!! We are sick of your nonsense false stories!!

    I wonder why there is no fool from this blog who is brave enough to respond to our comments! For surely these people are just uneducated fools trying to say something bad to Islam!

    10 points which refute the lie against Prophet (PBUH) and Aishaa (RA)

    1- If the marriage was so wrong, then why didn’t Aisha’s mother object to the marriage? Instead she happily gave Aisha for marriage, and prepared her for the marriage.

    2- Why didn’t Abu bakr the father of Aisha object to the marriage? If it was so wrong you would expect the father to have not allowed such a marriage to take place.

    3- Why did the women who were present with Aisha when she was about to be given to the prophet for marriage wished her luck and were happy for her. If the marriage was wrong, the women present would have been sad, and they would not have been happy for Aisha, rather what we see is that they were happy for Aisha and had no problems with this marriage whatsoever.

    4- Are we supposed to assume that Abu Bakr, and Aisha’s mother, and the women present with Aisha are all pedophiles and child molesters? Indeed such a conclusion with be very ignorant, and arrogant.

    5- Why didn’t any of the prophet’s enemies use this against the prophet Muhammad? If the marriage was so wrong, then you would expect to find his enemies to be the first ones to start using this against him, instead what we find is that his enemies NEVER EVEN ONCE brought this marriage up in a negative way against him.

    6- In fact why didn’t any of the Arabs around the Hijazi area object or talk against this marriage? It was not only the pagan Arabs in Hijaz who didn’t object to this marriage, but the surrounding Arabs didn’t object to it neither!

    7- Are we to assume that ALL these Arabs were pedophiles and child molesters? Indeed such a conclusion would make the one making this conclusion a very stupid man, because only a very stupid arrogant man would accuse an entire race of being child molesters and pedophiles.

    8- Why is there not a SINGLE hadith from Aisha showing her being displeased of the marriage? Why is there not one hadith from Aisha showing her to be like a victim, instead when you look at Aisha you find no symptoms of a victim. She became a great leader for Islam, a great scholar for Islam who would teach about Islam to many men. Does this seem to be the symptoms of someone who has been abused?

    9-If Aisha was indeed a victim and so on, then why did she love the prophet Muhammad so much, and would sometimes get jelous around him because she loved him so much, does this sound like someone who is a victim?

    10- from all the hadith literature we have, we can confidently say that if Aisha was alive today, that she would distance herself from these Christians making these sick arguments, and that she would want nothing to do with these people, this in itself speaks volumes since these people making this sick argument are supposed to be the good guys who are trying to be helpful.

    Rape occurs in all wars at all times, but Islam is the only world religion that sanctifies it and gives it religious justification as a permanent institution through concubinage and sexual slavery. Furthermore the Hadith (the sayings attributed to Muhammad and his companions) and the Sira (the biography of Muhammad) which are the Muslim equivalents of the Acts and Epistles also give religious sanction to violence, theft, slavery and rape on the part of Muslims when dealing with unbelievers.

  17. Anonymous11:38 AM

    My dear u have uttered a load crap with a locked mind and blin eye!! Islam doesn't belive in rape!
    It is prohibited!! Theft is haraam too. You have misunderstood and it shows ignorance when u said only islam allows slavery of the captives!!

    Read the ur old bible:

    Exodus 21:20-21 "If a man beats his male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies as a direct result, he must be punished, but he is not to be punished if the slave gets up after a day or two, since the slave is his property."

    Leviticus 25:44-46 "Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property. You can will them to your children as inherited property and can make them slaves for life, but you must not rule over your fellow Israelites ruthlessly."

    What kind of a human value does the Bible give to slaves? If slaves and their children must be inherited and passed down to newer generations as slaves, then how in the world will they ever gain their freedom?? Does the Bible believe in Freedom? Does the Bible believe in liberating human beings from slavery? Apparently it does not !!!

    Bible allows rape too!
    Judges 21: 10- 24 : "Completely destroy all the males and every woman who is not a virgin."

    "...They told the men of Benjamin who still needed wives, "Go and hide in the vineyards. When the women of Shiloh come out for their dances, rush out from the vineyards, and each of you can take one of them home to be your wife! "

    "... They kidnapped the women who took part in the celebration and carried them off to the land of their own inheritance. "

    "They are the ones who caused the plague to strike the LORD's people. Now kill all the boys and all the women who have slept with a man. Only the young girls who are virgins may live; you may keep them for yourselves."

    NOW GO AND READ UR BOOK OF CORRUPTION!! You guys don't have any proof but keep on uttering same old crap!
