Khaled Abdul-Aziz did not attempt to cover up his "crime" when he was tried by members of Ansar al-Sharia, an al-Qaeda affiliate.

"I admit my guilt," he said.

After the man confessed to stealing public property, the Ansar al-Sharia group operating in the al-Hajar area between Jaar and Zinjibar in south Yemen cut off his right hand.

In an interview with a Yemeni journalist, published by Al-Wasat weekly in November, Abdul-Aziz talked about his trial before a "court" set up by Ansar al-Sharia, another name for al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).

"My crime is theft, which has become prevalent in our area," he said. "Extreme poverty and hunger drove me to steal. I am not a thief. I stole out of necessity."

Abdul-Aziz was subjected to hadd punishment, and his right hand was cut off at the wrist. He received a "consolation" sum of only 120 riyals (54 cents).

Similar incidents have been occurring repeatedly in areas that Ansar al-Sharia controls. The practice of severe punishment raises questions about their legitimacy as it relates to Sharia, especially the applicability of hadd punishment in a country mired in extreme poverty, and whose government cannot provide its citizens with the basic necessities.

Ansar al-Sharia (supporters of Sharia law) is the new name AQAP adopted in May. The al-Qaeda brand, through which the organisation used to establish links that would later become regional affiliates, was abandoned by the organisation's Gulf affiliate, which opted to adopt an entirely opposite course and is currently active under the name Ansar al-Sharia.

This suggests that al-Qaeda chose a name that it believes has the potential to gain public acceptance because the Gulf population is proud of their Islamic heritage. According to this thinking, the local population would not be inclined to oppose the implementation of Islamic Sharia law, even though this doesn't mean that they subscribe to al-Qaeda's or Ansar al-Sharia's interpretation of the teachings of Islam, including the application of hadd punishment while Yemen is undergoing economic hardship and political conflict.

The International Food Policy Research Institute stated in reports published this year that since 2006 the percentage of Yemenis living in poverty has risen 8% to 42% of the total population. Thirty-two percent of Yemenis are unable to obtain adequate amounts of food, and 58% of children are suffering from malnutrition. Yemen ranks 74th out of 85 developing countries on the Global Hunger Index.

The high poverty rates raise questions about the legitimacy of such actions by Ansar al-Sharia, especially in light of historical evidence showing that hadd was not implemented in all circumstance in the past and was suspended in times of war or extreme poverty. Hadd punishments were suspended during the reign of Caliph Umar ibn al-Khattab when drought gripped the Hijaz region for many years, causing the population to endure an economic crisis that lasted over nine months and resulted in the death of many citizens.

Few people believe that Sharia authorises cutting off the hand of an impoverished thief when the state fails to provide daily necessities to destitute people who resort to theft as a means to provide for themselves and their dependents.

However, Ansar al-Sharia judges do not seem to be convinced that Yemen's conditions call for suspending application of hadd in areas under their control, despite the controversy over the legality of turning to amputation, flogging and killing. It is also not clear how Ansar al-Sharia acquired a mandate to apply hadd and act like a state within a state.

Abu Bishr, an Ansar al-Sharia "judge" in Jaar in south Yemen, said the population welcomed them when they declared they had arrived to "apply God's Sharia law," which should not be surprising in a conservative country like Yemen. Islamists have been active in Jaar since 1994, following the defeat of South Yemen communists.

Abu Bishr said in an interview with Al-Wasat that the group did not cut off the hands of "poor" thieves and only applied hadd punishment against individuals who stole to obtain qat or illegal drugs.

When asked about subjecting an impoverished person like Abdul-Aziz to hadd, Abu Bishr said, "Most of those who were subjected to hadd are young and capable of working, and there are many employment opportunities in the area. There is no famine as many claim. The thieves only use that as an excuse to steal. We have thieves in custody who were not subjected to hadd, and we did not have their hands cut off because they claimed to be poor."

It is difficult to confirm or refute the claims of the Ansar al-Sharia "judge" because of the security situation in Yemen, including regions in the south where al-Qaeda is active.

Muslim scholars argue that authority over application of hadd belongs to the head of state within the judicial system, and it must be implemented following Sharia guidelines governing such matters such as the age of puberty and adulthood. Officials should take into consideration whether compelling circumstances led offenders to commit the crimes they are accused of.

Mohammed al-Akwaa, a scholar who is the mufti of Thamar province and a member of the Yemeni Scholar's Association, said in an previous interview with Al-Shorfa that hadd must be implemented in accordance with Sharia law, which clearly states that the head of state has the sole authority to implement hadd, exclusive of any other party or group.

The Seyaj Organisation for Childhood Protection monitored several crimes committed by al-Qaeda in Yemen, including cutting off the hand of a 15-year-old boy accused of stealing electric cables. The boy's hand was hung in a public square. In another case, a man who was charged with stealing had his hand cut off as punishment, and later died of his wounds. The organisation's data show that more than 50,000 families were displaced from their villages and cities, virtually emptying them of their populations.

Ahmed al-Qurashi, head of Seyaj, told Al-Shorfa, "The crimes and abuses al-Qaeda committed in Jaar that were reported are just the tip of the iceberg. Much more remains shielded because of the tight control the organisation maintains over the city. People are afraid and cannot challenge the organisation, and there a lot of crimes that people in Jaar cannot reveal."

Al-Qurashi said children, whether they are child soldiers who die in armed confrontations or civilians, are affected by the war being fought between Ansar al-Sharia and the Yemeni army more than any other segment of society.

In light of news about citizens who are leaving areas that are controlled by Ansar al-Sharia, the controversial application of hadd, and widespread poverty and unemployment, questions must be raised about AQAP's attempt to rebrand itself as Ansar al-Sharia. If the goal is to avoid using the al-Qaeda name because it is no longer an appealing brand, which is clearly the case, the Ansar al-Sharia name does not seem to be achieving its intended result either.

    The Sharia has nothing to do with them. They went out of their houses and they were disunited, and then they pursued them??! That is dreadful!! The application of the Sharia is only happening in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by the permission of the ruler (King Abdullah ibn Abd al-Aziz or his deputy). The scholars of Sharia agree on this until now and there is no disagreement except from the Kharijites (a sect which literally means those who went out or opposed). They are the people of perfection, honesty and integrity, who were criminals and rapists, and then they entered the religion to declare others as apostates and repel their mistakes. They became paranoid due to their mistakes which stain their blood and skins. Certainly, they are criminals and destroyers. If the hand of one of their children were chopped off, they would make a fuss. We are in a time that is different from the rest of times. If the thief comes to the judge and admits his guilt, the judge will not give a verdict easily. He will ask him about his state of mind at such time, whether he was under the influence of a substance or anything. The important thing is that if the prescribed punishments are to be applied in the world, they would repel people. This is why: the Islamic religion is the religion of kindness and peace, the prescribed punishments came to protect the necessities of the societies and humans. The mechanism of applying those punishments is up to the judge, the responsible people who are qualified to decide and rule and the ruler (the president – king) etc., because chaos will make people execute each other!!

After doing so, there will be no excuse, and the command of God will be applied for sure, because this way I am not an oppressor!

    “This issue is not strange in a conservative country like Yemen and in an area like Ju’ar, where the Islamists‎ have been strongly active since 1994, following the defeat of the communists in southern Yemen.” This is not fair and unrealistic, because rule in southern Yemen was not communist or the like, because there was a conflict over power between some stupid and ignorant people who claim religiosity and secularists who want to achieve progress. As for execution of the religious penalties in a poor country and against poor people, while the rich are exempted and allowed to loot the people’s money as they wish under the name of religion, this is injustice and backwardness incarnate. This is what we see in all the states that claim that they apply sharia of God, who is innocent of them and their alleged sharia. Where is the technological progress, O stupid people, while we live in the 21st century? The problem is that Egypt is underway after the success of the Islamic current, which is loyal to the backward Bedouin ideology, and the domination of the usurious capitalists.

    First, I wish that this article were not like a true word that intends to achieve an evil objective. Second, the common errors, even among the scholars, include the belief that the prescribed penalties can be canceled under some circumstances. That is because saying that Umar ibn Al-Khattaab, may God be pleased with him, canceled the penalty for theft during the year of famine, or the like, is not true, because he would never dare to do so on his own, simply because he fears God. Indeed, he did not cut off the hands of the convicted thieves during the year of famine, but this was in application of a religious ruling that then became the cancellation of a religious penalty. By the religious ruling here, I mean the fact that any doubt regarding the possession of stolen money makes the penalty void, because the absence of all reasonable doubt is a prerequisite to the execution of all the prescribed religious penalties. Hence, in such a case, he applied another Islamic ruling, rather than cancelling the penalty. The doubt during the year of famine was the belief of the poor that they have a right in stolen money, depending on the Quranic verse in which God the Almighty said what can be translated as: “And in their wealth the beggar and the outcast had due share.” Hence, the needy person may believe that he has a share in this money, even if he acquired it through theft. Of course, the thief here deserves the punishment, but the doubt that arose here absolves him from the penalty. Consequently, it must be clear that Umar, may God be pleased with him, did apply a religious ruling that prevents execution of the penalty for theft under certain circumstances, rather than canceling it, may God forbid. God the Almighty said what can be translated as: “We have neglected nothing in the Book of Our decrees.” Hence, everything that would happen to the people until the Day of Judgment has a ruling in our religion. Hence, we can never cancel any religious ruling under any circumstances, because the claim that Umar did so is groundless.

    In the Name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful! My brothers and sisters: I remind you and myself of what Almighty God says: "But you will never find in the way of God any change, and you will never find in the way of God any alteration." -Fatir: 43. The rulings of Islamic Sharia are clear and honest; each ruling of the Islamic Sharia is expiation and purification of the sin that the Muslim has committed. Muslims should not argue about the rulings of God Almighty. My brothers and sisters, do not forget that the kind religion of Islam is targeted by the enemies of God and Muslims all over the earth. They always seek to distort the facts and defame the reputation of Islam and Muslims. Yet, God will complete His light, despite the hatred of infidels. My brothers and sisters, this is some advice from someone who loves you for the sake of God, because Almighty God says: /A mistake; this is a saying of the Prophet Muhammad/: "None of you will believe unless he loves for his brother what he loves for himself." Make your rulings in these matters based on the Holy Qu'ran and the Prophetic traditions and sayings of the Messenger of God, Muhammad, peace be upon him. Finally, please pray with me: "O God! Show us the truth as truth, so that we may follow it, and show us falsehood as falsehood, so that we may abstain from it." Amen, O Lord of the Worlds! Naseer al-Haqq, Supporter of Righteousness

    Peace be upon you…. cutting off the hand of the thief is legal when he steals something equal to a half of a dinar or higher, according to the opinion of the majority of the Islamic jurists. However, cutting off the hand has conditions, such as the fact that the thief must not be needy and that the execution must be at the hands of the ruler or his deputy. The thief also must be wise and eligible for the religious duties. When the conditions of the theft are met, the hand must not be amputated from the shoulder, but from the wrist. This is what is stated in sharia. However, those ignorant people cut off the arm at the shoulder, ignoring the fact that this is not the preponderant or the famous opinion. We ask God to guide the Muslims and to support them against their enemies.

I say to you Arabs, those people are a group supported by the national security and the al-Ahmar tribe, both of which are struggling to get into power in Sanaa'. They recruit the youth to threaten the area and delude the USA into thinking that there is terrorism in the south of Yemen, which is not true. The security force surrendered the city, camps and arms to them, which was a kind of farce, as their number was not more than 200 persons. The government forced the citizens to leave the governorate and banned anyone from entering for 6 months to blockade the city. How can they have the arms, ammunition and food? The answer is the Yemeni planes, which are bombing the houses of southern citizens. The same planes drop boxes of weapons and food for the supporters of oppression, i.e. Ansar al-Sharia. The sad thing is that many young boys who are younger than 15 years old have been fooled into joining these battles. This is done so that the southern Yemenis do not have any chance of liberating their land, by keeping them busy with al-Qaeda. This is the truth of what we suffer, we the citizens of the oppressed Abyan!

Who is a thief, according to Sharia? What is the nature of the money that was taken? Does the word "stolen" apply to it? What is the place from which the money was taken; is it a secure place? What these groups are doing has nothing to do with Islam; it is not linked to Sharia, the Islamic rulings or punishments. They are violating Islam to scare people away from Islam, the application of Islamic rulings on earth and the establishment of a righteous Caliphate based on the Prophetic method. Yet, God's decree will prevail. They plan, God plans, and indeed God is the Best of Planners!

    Almighty God says: "…and when they saw him, they greatly admired him and cut their hands…" -Yusuf "Joseph": 32. Cutting the hand means to give an opportunity to seek sustenance by looking for work, so that the thief does not return to stealing again. Cutting the hand doesn't mean chopping it off, as the idiots might think who claim to be applying the Sharia, i.e. the Islamic Law. The Sharia is actually the authority of the ruler. Omar ibn al-Khatab did not stop the application of the prescribed punishments in the year of al-Ramadah, because no one can stop the application of them. He only followed the Qur'anic text, as we clarified. As for cutting the hand, it is based on complex conditions, such as stealing without a need or necessity and the value of the stolen item, etc. There are other conditions, but there is no room to mention them here. This retarded, repulsive thinking should be eliminated because it drives people away from Islam. Then, we should show the kind aspect of our great religion.

They are like the woman who locked up the cat without food and she did not even let her go and search for food for herself.

    Certainly, it is forbidden to chop off the hands of the thief who steals to feed himself. On the contrary, what is more logical is chopping the hands of those who steal the fortunes and future of a whole nation? They and their likes live a luxurious life, along with their children, family and entourage, while on the other hand, the people suffer from poverty and death due to hunger. The people strive to earn a dinar, while others don't make any effort, while stealing fortunes, appointing relatives and other kinds of corruption. Of course, Islam is not to blame; this is to the guy who quoted Jesus. Islam does not chop off the hands of a poor man for stealing so he can eat, and preserve the hands of those who have been stealing the fortunes, earnings and sources of people for more than sixty years. The hands of those who robbed countries, displaced people and brought traitors and Freemasons to continue selling and displacing the people here and there have to be chopped off. They besiege the people, Judaize the land and fool others into believing there is a right that they actually ask for.

    We have a beautiful story in Christianity. One time, a Jew caught a female fornicator. He caught her in the act. They brought her to Jesus and they said: “Moses said to us that a woman like that has to be stoned. Tell us what to do?!” Jesus said to them: “Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.” He kept writing on the ground the sins that they had committed; they all let the woman go and left. Jesus raised his head and found the woman scared. He said to her: “Did anyone condemn you?” She said: “No, master.” He said: “I don't condemn you either; go and sin no more.” Guys, I want to say something important, something that we have to consider carefully. When God created us, He knew what each of us would do in his life in detail. He knew whether a person would steal or not, and despite this, He created the person complete, without a missing hand or leg. Also, for the people who say that religion has nothing to do with emotions, I want to say to them: If God has nothing to do with emotions, then who would?! Guys, this is forbidden. God has created emotions in us, will God create something that is wrong, or something that the Almighty has nothing to do with?

    I like the content. Majed -01-01 23:49:13" A lot of al-Qaeda members have let this organization down, as God the Almighty has said; “Their enmity among themselves is very great. You would think that they were united, but their hearts are divided.” All glory is to God; the rights of the Muslims will never go in vain. In fact, they will experience the acts which they have carried out against people, and maybe even stronger. In fact, al-Qaeda is not like before, given that it has begun to be weaker and weaker for many reasons, the first of which are material funds. In fact, al-Qaeda is currently unable to collect money from all of the parties which were used to helping it. The death of Osama bin Laden has destroyed this organization, given that its strength was in this man, who was the mastermind of its criminal acts. Thus, the death of bin Laden has affected it a lot. After bin Laden, the death of Atiyah has weakened it again."

    There is obvious hostility in the article toward applying the Islamic Sharia; it is clear on the part of the writer and most of those who commented. I don't even think they are Muslims, because they make Muslims doubt their belief. The 15-year-old is not a child. He also did not steal food; he stole power cables. So, how come those who commented think that it is due to hunger, not a as a profession? If you were poor and someone came and stole your children's food, what would your position be? If you knew that they were poor and that they could not find food to survive, what did you do to rescue and help them? Aren’t you Muslims like they are? The prescribed punishments were set by God ever since he created humanity, because he knows the best interest of humans. Stop your insinuations; the enemies of our religion aim to question our belief and drive us away from worshiping God.

    Peace and Blessings of God on Muhammad and the family of Muhammad. May God have mercy on this poor child! What they did to him has nothing to do with the Islamic Sharia. One of the conditions for applying the prescribed punishment for theft is that the thief must not have committed his crime due to hunger. There are other measures that have to be reviewed first. The chopping should not be done on the entire palm; it should be the ends of fingers. This is in the Sharia. With this horrendous act, the child will not be able to work and he will die of hunger, or he might be dependent on society, due to losing his hand.

    I consider this an act of brigandage. Any gang tries to control cities and do what they want according to their desires. The prescribed punishments have to be applied by the State through the qualified judges. They need an experienced judge who studied jurisprudence and he must have vision, knowledge and patience. He has to be a man who fears God and does not feel afraid to apply the law. He should be a man who makes a mistake by giving a pardon, not a mistake of doing injustice. There are big thieves in Yemen who steal people in broad daylight and they are not poor, why don't they judge and punish them first? I would say to them: If you are part of the Yemeni people and the Yemenis accept your method, then run in the elections and you will win and be in power. At this time, everybody will obey you and your decisions will be legitimate because you would be in a position of authority. Most people will accept them as long as the decisions are based on jurisprudence and issued with consensus. As for the ones who support what they (Ansar al-Sharia) did, they are either extremists or idiots. They have no understanding whatsoever of jurisprudence or law. God is the Helper!

    This incident that seems to have been repeated several times lately in the areas controlled by Ansar al-Sharia which is raising questions from the religious point of view, at least. The question is whether it is religiously allowed to apply the Sharia in a country drowning in destitution. The country cannot even provide the minimal requirements of a decent life for the citizens.

    From Aisha, may God be pleased with her, that Quraish was concerned about the affair of the Makhzoomiya, i.e. a member of Makhzoom tribe, woman who committed theft. They asked: “Who will speak to God's Messenger, peace be upon him, regarding her?” And some of them said, “Who better for this than Usama ibn Zaid, the beloved of God's Messenger, peace be upon him?” So Usama spoke to him, PBUH, and he said, "Do you intercede regarding a boundary among the boundaries of God?!" Then he, PBUH, stood and began a speech and said, "Those who came before you were only destroyed, because when a noble one among them stole, they left them alone, but when the weak among them did likewise, they enacted the prescribed punishment upon them. By God! If Fatimah, the daughter of Muhammad were to steal, I would cut off her hand." -Narrated by Bukhari and Muslim.

God willing, we are heading towards that. The application of the prescribed punishments against the thief and fornicator is the duty of the Emir and Caliph. I think the Mujahidin, i.e. strivers of Yemen are authorized to do so. To the brother who says, let's go back to the books, the fatwas of the Muslim scholars, the predecessors and their followers, may God be pleased with them: I say to him, we should return to the people on the borders, i.e. faraway destinations, concerning what we are not sure about. I think those people are the people of Khorasan, especially Afghanistan. The Mujahidin know better than we and the ruling scholars do, who, I think, have sold their hereafter to buy the present life.

  • االحميدي

    2012-2-5

    My brothers, we all know the foundation of the Islamic Sharia, i.e. laws. Before judging any case according to Islam, certain conditions have to be fulfilled. The most important of these conditions are maturity and puberty of the convict. Thus, the application of the prescribed punishment to this juvenile is a crime, and the people who committed it will be judged by God on the Day of Judgment. First, they should have known the reasons why he committed the crime. Second, what were the losses caused by the crime? Third, who are the people responsible for the crime? Are the conditions for applying the punishment to him fulfilled or not? The convict said that his reason was his desperate need, due to economic reasons that affect a whole country, not just one person. So, the punishment should have been imprisonment for a certain time, so that he would learn his lesson and not do it again. He should learn that God is the Sustainer who gives sustenance. They should have not chopped off his hand. All we have to say is, God is sufficient for us, for He is the Best Disposer. We trust in the Lord of the Worlds to punish every oppressive tyrant. I pray to God Almighty to give him patience and give him his rights back from the one who oppressed him; i.e. punish the oppressor, in the present life and in the hereafter!

    The suspension of the penalty for theft by Umar, may God be pleased with him, during the year of famine does not mean the cancellation of the penalty; it is an appropriation of the religious juristic rule, “Under all circumstances, penalties should be repealed in case there is any doubt for it.” During the famine, the number of hungry and needy people increased, and this made it very difficult to distinguish those who stole out of need, and those who stole without a need. Hence, Umar, may God be pleased with him, suspended the penalty for theft during the year of famine.

I call on all the oppressed people to be patient and to wait for relief. According to the comments that I have read, I confirm that all believers condemn whoever abuses our honorable Prophet, peace be upon him, or his household with any word, as they are words of mercy for us and for all those who were guided to piety.

    Peace be upon you…. I would like to draw the attention to the fact that the age of 15 means that one is an adult in the sight of sharia. However, some people are affected by the western law, which considers that the age of adulthood is 18 years. Hence, they condemn carrying out the penalty for theft against this young man, not against adults. In addition, the scholars agreed that execution of penalties is the responsibility of the ruler or his representative who is authorized to carry out this judgment. As for al-Qaeda and the supporters of sharia, we would like to tell them that each party is convinced of the validity of their thoughts, and we ask God to expose the truth about you to the people. However, such parties exploit the emotions of the people, as is the case with the Rafidah and Christians. We seek God's help against them. In addition, we call on those who say that this is prohibited to stop saying anything until they learn their religion. Finally, I also call on the opportunists who want to fish in troubled waters and seek to tarnish the pure image of Islam through this website to remember that it is enough lying for a man to speak of everything that he hears. They have to know that seeking knowledge is a duty, so as not to remain ignorant, O Muslims!

    Peace be upon you…. shouldn’t we follow the role model of the righteous predecessors? The Caliph of the Arab and Muslim world suspended the penalty for theft during the year of famine because of the rampancy of poverty and hunger. He took the people’s circumstances into consideration and asked Amr to send some of the riches of Egypt to him to distribute to the poor and the needy. Important note: Islamic jurisprudence necessitates considering the motivations for the crime before executing the penalty. In addition, the perpetrator in our case is not an adult, and thus his father or his tribe must be held accountable for his crime. When justice prevails and when we eliminate poverty by providing food, clothes, and the other basic needs to the poor and the needy, in such a way that makes committing such crimes unjustified, then we can apply the penalties. We have to learn from the Quran and the Sunnah, as well as the rule of the Righteous Caliphs, may God be pleased with them. Son of the captured Quds.

    Al-Qaeda is infiltrated by Iranian and Persian intelligence. Hence, Iran applies its agenda through this terrorist organization under the cover of the war on the crusaders, while they in fact kill the Muslims in the Islamic states. All of these conspiracies are being implemented at the hands of people who are deceived by the thoughts of this al-Qaeda terrorist organization. Hence, those who join al-Qaeda turn into soldiers who implement the Iranian and magi agendas while unaware. These are the facts that are supported with pictures and documents. The leaders of al-Qaeda settle in Tehran and we have never heard of a single attack on the Iranian interests or militias.

  • دينى هو الاسلام

    No comment and I have nothing to add. Anyway, I would like to confirm that if Islam had allowed cutting off the hand of a young child who knows nothing other than suffering from hunger, and who knows very little about Islam, unlike the adults, I would have never followed Islam or believed in the merciful Prophet, peace be upon him. However, I am sure that the Prophet, peace be upon him, was merciful, and I want to ask this question: if a young boy stole at the time of the Prophet, peace be upon him, would he have stood watching the little boy while his hand was being amputated, knowing that he was young and did not understand Islam? I swear, the Prophet, peace be upon him, would have never accepted this under any circumstances. I am sorry for using such harsh words, but when I imagined this scene of the young boy, I became extremely angry. As for the adults who steal, they deserve this punishment, but we must remember that Yemen suffers from hunger. May God send peace and blessings upon the Prophet, peace be upon him, who was the messenger of mercy, tolerance and kindness. As for those who apply this verdict against this boy, they understand the meaning of Islam as their leaders understand it, forgetting that the Prophet, peace be upon him, ordered us to ask ourselves first. Please, I call on the Arab rulers to return to their hearts for judgment. I am proud to be Muslim and cannot adopt the understanding of Islam that allows this to be done to a child. However, I follow the messenger of mercy, tolerance, and kindness to the elders and the youth.

So wait and see what will happen! The problem is that the Arabs know nothing but talking. We cannot take our rights with our hands. I wish I were not an Arab, because the Arabs hate and envy each other. You can consider what is happening in Syria, Egypt after Mubarak, Iraq after Saddam, Libya, Algeria, and the forgotten Palestine. In short, all we can do is to demonstrate and leave the enemies to destroy our homes. We also consider that those who are not with us as our enemies. We allow the West to fool us, but we insist that the West is our friend. Please, try to use your minds.

    No one has the right to punish anyone. God is our Creator and he knows what is right and wrong. The one who steals is not a thief; he needs money to sustain his life. So, please consider the people’s conditions before torturing them and guide them to the right path, because God does not like the oppressors, but he likes those who love each other. Some Arab states punish the thieves and cut off their hands. Hence, they should realize that God will punish them for their violations. You will never control the people’s behavior. This is my creed and belief. This is the worst form of oppression. Instead of cutting off the hand of the thief, try to ask him why he did this. If it is just a habit, then we can punish him, but if this was done out of need, then the capitalists should help or employ him so that he can improve his living conditions, rather than cutting off his hand. As for the case in question, he certainly needs money to provide for his family and children. Ahmed Adel, 2011-12-29 05:50:11. This is prohibited for you.

Upon receiving the reply, Umar promptly sent another message that read, “If you amputated the hand of a hungry person, I will cut off your head.” In addition, whoever steals from the public money should not have his hand amputated, because the thief has a right to stolen money; rather, we should cut off the hand of the rich people who steal the private properties of the others.

However, today some polytheists who call themselves Al-Qaeda and other names in all countries defame Islam on the orders of the wishes of the Jews and to eliminate Islam and dismantle it. May God curse them forever.

That is because there is no law that punishes those who make mistakes, rather than the groups and tribes. In the presence of poverty and hunger, the only thing that is left for one is dignity rather than subordination to some groups in the name of the religion. O God!

What is this criminality, which allows me to judge you as traitors and killers who work to defame the image of Islam in front of the world? If you are really Muslims, then you should work on finding jobs for the Muslim youth instead of practicing these bloody rituals that are out of context. You are really criminals, because you enjoy the sight of blood. You are savages and I swear if I had the power, I would kill you and I would not protect the life of any dog of you.

    Peace be upon you…. dear brothers, we should not accuse Islam of being responsible for any mistake, because the Islamic history witnessed periods when there was no one to receive the Zakaah, which proves the mercy and justice of Islam today. The Muslim world is divided into small states and each ruler rules a people, and some of them are just while the rest are oppressors. So, why don’t we accuse the president of such and such or the governor of such and such of being responsible for the poverty, hunger or oppression, instead of accusing Islam? Anyone who accuses Islam is wrong, and the true religion of Islam has nothing to do with him. We, the Muslims, are ready to give our food in charity to those who need it most, and we prefer them to ourselves. Hence, I wish that your discussion would not involve the religion. Rather, we should define the concerned officials who are responsible for this, because I think that the writer of this report only wanted to defame Islam. I did not see any Muslim attacking the Christians or followers of any other religion, knowing that the followers of the other religions are very hostile towards Islam, which is the fairest, most honorable and the purest religion. If you a true Muslim man, then specify who is responsible for this mistake or that one, and avoid overgeneralizing regarding Islam, because this affects all the Muslims, not only the Islamic scholars or jurists. O God! Support Islam and Muslims and disgrace the disbelief and those who collaborate with the infidels who hide among the Muslims.

    Sa’d Al-Iraqi/ The religious penalties are not applied these days for reasons that are related to the circumstances and sharia, which require modifications to the prescribed penalties and the retribution from the perpetrators. In addition, the rulings of sharia have been deactivated for a long period, and therefore we found some fake religious people, who do not understand anything other than what donkeys can understand, with their long beards that hide the filth and their fossilized fatwas that belong to the old times, deviating from the right path of the righteous predecessors and the recommendations of the seal of the prophets who recommended following his caliph Ali ibn Abi Taalib, may God be pleased with him. He said that love and support for him is akin to love for the apostle and vice versa. He also said that the truth is always with Ali wherever he goes. He also said that Ali is the one who distinguishes the people of Paradise from the people of hell, and that Ali is like the father of this nation. He also said that Ali is from the trees of a beautiful oasis, while the rest are from the inferior places.

Why don’t they help the poor?

    Those who claim that they apply sharia as to cutting off the hand of the thief are ignorant about two important things, supposing that they have acquired some religious knowledge: 1- the rulings of sharia, 2- application of these rulings in reality. They do not know that the Islamic jurists have adopted 13 conditions for executing the penalty for theft. If they are ignorant or not fully knowledgeable, then they have to return and acquire the knowledge that enlightens them about the reality of life.

    Do not listen to these malicious allegations. God the Almighty said what can be translated as: “O ye who believe! If an evil person bring you tidings, verify it, lest ye smite some folk in ignorance and afterward repent of what ye did.” And: “O ye who believe! Shun much suspicion; for lo, some suspicion is a crime.” The supporters of sharia can never do this, because those who followed the path of God will not deviate. These allegations against those mujahedeen aim at wasting their work and services to Islam with these rumors. Do you believe that those who sacrificed this world for the sake of the hereafter and who have miraculous acts when they fell as martyrs, do not have the rulings of sharia? I swear this never happened and it will not happen, despite the fact that I am like you and I did not see anything with my eyes. If this happened, then I think that this thief absolutely deserves this penalty, because he is not poor or unable to find food. Fear God and stop speaking about the mujahidin in this way without knowledge and wake up. We ask God to make our nation know the truth and to make our nation return to the right and the truth.

    Dear brother, these rulings were actually applied during the lifetime of the Prophet, peace be upon him, not in these days. The world has changed and the criminals receive their penalties in different forms. Can you tell me how the thief who was punished will work after that? He will find himself forced to commit more crimes. In addition, this is not acceptable, because it depicts Islam as a bloody religion, which would make those who intend to embrace it change their mind and deviate from the religion of the truth and tolerance.

    Peace be upon you…. The religion of Islam is a great religion and it calls for human nobility. Hence, in order to execute any religious penalty against anyone, all the conditions must be satisfied and then the role of mercy and forgiveness comes in. In Islam, there is a rule that says, “Let there be no harm or reciprocal harm.” We should sacrifice with some individuals in order to achieve the interests of the society, and secure it against the crimes of theft and their consequences. Hence, sharia states that the penalty for the adult and sane thief, who stole many times, not only once, who is not under necessity that allows some prohibitions, with the exception of the theft of foods and books, is the amputation of the hand. We thank God for the blessing of Islam.

    Yemenis are a poor people. Hence, the Yemeni president should search in the streets for those who beg food and provide them with food. However, it is unfortunate to say that he did not do so. In Qatar, you can search for the poor, but you will not find anyone searching for food in the streets, because the people enable them not to remain in the street. When I went with my father on a visit to Yemen, we found many beggars in the streets, and my father gave them money. I swear that I felt for them. I wish I could go again and contribute to alleviating their suffering. I seek God's help.

In fact, we should not let them carry out their despicable acts, including the killing of innocent people everywhere. Al-Qaeda is adopting filthy and heinous methods in Yemen. Indeed, they are trying to intimidate Yemeni citizens. They want to make them overwhelmed by terror and fear, in order to force them to give up and submit to their demands. However, we, the Arabs, hate Al Qaeda terrorism and terrorists. We should defy terrorists and prevent them from committing further crimes against the civilians. In fact, the Yemeni citizens did not bow to the terrorists. They did not accept the acts of violence and criminality carried out by Al Qaeda in Yemen.

Instead of cutting off heads and hands, come to receive mercy from Jesus, who loved the thief and loved even those who crucified him, according to the Christian beliefs.

    Those people are ignorant, because they do not cut off the hand of the thief to improve the society or clean it, but they do this to make the Muslims, who have diseased hearts, believe that they do the best. God the Exalted says what can be translated as: “He it is who hath revealed unto thee, Muhammad, the Scripture wherein are clear revelations - they are the substance of the Book - and others which are allegorical. However, those in whose hearts is doubt pursue, forsooth, that which is allegorical, seeking to cause dissension by seeking to explain it. No one knoweth its explanation save God. And those who are of sound instruction say: We believe therein; the whole is from our Lord; but only men of understanding really heed it.” You will not feel this oppression unless you feel pain because of the injustice; Oman.

    The application of the prescribed penalties in sharia is acceptable, and the divine law specifies amputation of the palm of the thief’s hand. Hence, I wish that no one would try to be smart; he should read the books of Islamic jurisprudence first. With regard to the suspension of the penalty of the thief during the year of the famine, it was his own opinion, not a revelation. We can imagine what would happen if the poor people stole in all countries. No one would accept going through a crisis and then having someone come to steal from him. We seek God's help.

No person is safe from making mistakes, so I would have hoped you did not rush in your punishment because he was still a kid...

    I see that this is a result of their total ignorance. Why do they appoint themselves as swords over the necks of the people? Do they have the authority to do that? This is just an attempt to oppress the people, under the pretext of applying the prescribed punishments in sharia and zeal for the religion. Why didn’t Umar, may God be pleased with him, cut off the hands of the thieves during the year of famine? Rather, why didn’t they try to reform the thieves by teaching them a craft so they could make a living? Unfortunately, we do not understand our religion well. Some ambassadors of Islam misrepresent Islam, and they are enemies of their religion without even knowing it. Those who accept this ruling are ignorant about sharia and Islamic jurisprudence. The first word that was revealed in the Quran was “Read…” Hence, we have to read and learn, rather than repeating things like parrots. I fear for Islam, because of the behavior of such people, who seek extremism despite everything, despite the fact that the Prophet, peace be upon him, always chose the easiest option whenever it was possible. Instead of amputating the hands of poor people, we have to bring the major thieves to justice, who steal millions and spread corruption on earth, depending on what they stole from us. Fear God and ask the scholars if you do not know.

    The application of sharia with its form and content is perfect, but when it comes to the application of the prescribed punishments in sharia, they must be applied strictly. Complete amputation of the hand is prohibited by the divine law, because amputation of the hand of the thief in sharia means amputation of the fingers and the parts that are used in prostration during prayer, which are the forehead, the palms, the knees and the legs. God stated this and you should read the books of Islamic jurisprudence correctly, not haphazardly.

    Because you went astray from the method of Islam, so this might be what the Christian journalism of America writes. It is true that we should never cut the hands of the thief if he was poor.

    Those who claim to be Muslims apply the Islamic law with ignorance. The Mufti (Grand Imam) said that cutting the hand means scratching to leave a mark not amputation. The verse in the Quran says: "Go thou back to thy lord, and ask him `What is the state of mind of the ladies who cut their hands?' For my Lord is certainly well aware of their snare."(Yusuf: 50) They have handicapped this poor child with brutality which offends Islam. They should be dealt the same way and their hands amputated.

    Al-Qaeda terrorist organization or any of the other similar names were not appointed by the Islamic nations to apply the Islamic Sharia. Have not they asked before applying the punishment about this Arab country that lives in an angry revolution against poverty, oppression, inequality and injustice? Have not they asked this child before applying the punishment? Have not they asked his family whether they fed and clothed him? Have not they felt what Yemen is suffering such poverty, hunger, sickness and lack of treatment? Have not they felt and seen the revolutionists who were killed because they wanted to live freely and with dignity and pride in a nation rich with resources. If these resources were distributed according to justice, it would be more than enough for the people. Have not they thought for even one minute that religion is ease? God forbid, if a plane crashes and the people run out of food, Islamic law permits them to eat anything to stay alive. Shame on them for what they did! God will curse them! Fear God, you were not authorized to apply Sharia and prescribed punishments. God suffices us, for He is the Best Disposer of Affairs! May God punish all those who claim to represent Islam while actually Islam disowns them and it has nothing to do with them until the end of time (Day of Judgment).

    Is this an application of Sharia or the intimidation of the ruling of Islam? To those who claim that they are the guardians of Sharia, I want to ask you a simple question. According to Islam, which person does the term “thief” apply to? What is the description of the money that was taken and would that make it stolen money? What is the place from which the money was taken; is it a restricted place? The actions of these groups do not represent Islam at all. It has nothing to do with Sharia, Islamic law or the prescribed punishments of God. They simply violate Islam to make people afraid of the religion, the application of the Islamic rulings and the establishment of a just Caliphate based on the Prophetic method… “Yet, God prevails in his affairs.” -Qur’an: Yusuf: 21 "They plot and plan, and God also plans, but the best of planners is God." -Al-Anfal: 30

    We belong to God the Almighty and to him we shall return. The Prophet, peace be upon him, was right when he said that the trivial person will speak about people’s affairs. Those trivial people legalize the prohibited things, prohibit the allowed things, and call things by incorrect names. They hate the righteous people and the mujahidin, and they criticize the Islamists‎ and speak ill of the penalties of God. All of this comes from a group about whom God has said: “Those are people who forgot God; therefore He caused them to forget their souls.” If you asked one of them about the number of pillars of Islam, he could not answer you. I look at them as if I am looking at the devil who deceived them, until they became included in the Quranic verse in which God the Almighty said what can be translated as: “Those whose effort goeth astray in the life of the world, and yet they reckon that they do good work.” Those trivial people about whom the Prophet, peace be upon him, told us, dedicated themselves to fight God and His Messenger, as well as hating the righteous people and mujahidin. Can any one of them tell me what he has offered to Islam, other than speaking ill of the rulings of God and our heroic sheikh Osama bin Laden, who spent his whole life in jihad? Probably, he made mistakes, but this does not justify abusing him. We heard that he was killed while fighting in the cause of God until his last breath. You are cruel. We seek God's help against you.

    Umar ibn Al-Khattaab, may God be pleased with him, suspended the execution of the prescribed penalty for theft during the famine. So, why don’t those trivial people learn from Umar, who suspended this penalty, due to the presence of doubts? 1- The prescribed penalties and punishments were imposed out of the keenness of God to protect the Five Major Purposes of sharia individually and collectively. Sharia also guarantees the rights of the suspects and provides them with sufficient guarantees to check the presence of the condition of aggression as a prerequisite to the execution of the punishment. 2- Umar ibn Al-Khattaab, may God be pleased with him, did not invent anything new when he suspended the execution of this penalty during the famine; rather, he was following the traditions such as the Quranic verse in which God the Exalted says what can be translated as: “Whoso is forced by hunger, not by will, to sin: for him, lo! God is Forgiving, Merciful.” In Islam, the prescribed penalties can never be applied in the presence of any doubt whatsoever. Hence, there is a great doubt that prevents us from executing the prescribed penalty for theft, because the thief stole out of a strong need. Of course, this does not mean agreeing with theft.

    Unfortunately, those are the supporters of ignorance and the devil, but they do so in the name of the religion, while they are donkeys that carry heavy books without benefiting from them, and they are like mad dogs. 1- The prescribed punishments in sharia cannot be executed in the presence of any doubt. 2- The prescribed punishments should be deactivated under such circumstances. 3- Those who apply sharia must educate the people first, and then give them a chance to change their conditions, in addition to many preliminary steps that precede this application, in order to allow people to learn and to make them realize the reality of the rulings of sharia. The religion does not seek to punish people through the imposition of these prescribed penalties, but they were imposed for deterrence and protection of rights. We ask God to curse those ignorant people who make people hate Islam, while the Prophet, peace be upon him, said, “Make things easy and do not make them difficult, cheer the people up by conveying glad tidings to them and do not repulse them. It was sent to revive the true and clear religion of Abraham.”

However, we stress the necessity of a sound application, rather than its being used as a pretext on the part of some spiteful and atheist groups that allege that they apply Islam, while they seek to impose their control in the reality under the pretext of the religion and sharia. We want sharia to be applied first to the president and then to the people. Justice must prevail according to the Sunnah and sharia. Finally, I would like to say that we seek God's help against all those who have oppressed the others, especially this spiteful organization.

    The true Muslim cannot violate sharia. The prescribed penalties were put in place to protect the money of the people and their honor and blood. Only those who violate the prohibitions of God fear these penalties. No one has the right to comment on the rulings of God or to sympathize with the criminals.

    We cannot apply the rulings of Islam to the people as long as they were not provided with proper food and houses. The application of the rulings comes only after they have been given their rights. The hungry people have a right to the bellies of the rich. Hence, when the poor steals to satisfy his hunger, he will not be liable under sharia. The rich person who steals must be punished. Islam is the religion of neither mercy nor vengeance. Do not make Islam a burden on the shoulders of the poor, who are already overburdened. Prevent the thieves from stealing by giving them their rights, so they will not steal. If anyone steals after that, then he must be punished.

    O people, there is a saying that necessity has its rules. Even the Quran states that in the case of necessity, one could eat pork to save his life, as long he will not do it again without necessity. Poverty is not a problem, even if it caused one to steal but not kill. If we considered fasting during the month of Ramadan, there is a rationale behind it. It aims at making the rich feel the hunger of the poor. That is why this person stole, and I think that he is not guilty in religious terms.

    In the name of God, the Most Merciful, the ever Merciful. First, the child in question is an adult, and he was found guilty of killing the son of a rich man. He was arrested three months after committing his crime and he was sent to prison. He confessed to the murder and the family of the victim refused to accept blood money and insisted on retaliation. I heard this story from his guard in the prisons, who described the killer as a religious and polite young man, who used to pray and ask God to accept him. When the verdict was issued to him, he was brought to the prison yard, and then a clergyman came and asked the family of the victim to accept the blood money for the last time, but they refused. The young man was smiling until he was killed. This is a statement to all people.

    No doubt, there are things that we do not agree with. If the story of the child you mentioned is true, I think applying the prescribed punishment to him is wrong, for a number of reasons. First, he is not an adult yet; he is just a child. Second, he is poor. Third, the punishment for stealing public property is not cutting off the right hand, because he has a right to this public money. The punishment should be a different one, something other than cutting off the hand. That is, of course, if the claims of Ansar al-Sharia are true, because there are many accusations these days. I say to my brothers in Ansar al-Sharia: Fear God and do not abuse people; think about their circumstances. Return to the Book of God, the Qur’an, and abandon your bad inclinations. Do not act arrogant because of your strength, because God is the Powerful, the Omnipotent and He is capable of seeking revenge.

There are many measures and procedures that should be considered before applying the prescribed punishment according to Sharia law. I hope the scholars of Yemen would look into this subject and give a fatwa, in that regard, so that we do not have such disasters again. God is the Arbiter of Success!

    It seems this incident has happened several times in the places controlled by the Ansar al-Sharia Group. This raises a lot of questions in terms of the legitimacy of this act.

    The prescribed punishment for theft should only be applied in a fair country with no poor people. The one who can apply the punishment should be an honest, fair person who follows the Sharia as well! There are more than thirty conditions that should exist before applying the prescribed punishment! We all know the famous story and saying: “He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.”

    Applying the Sharia of God on earth is a deterrent to criminals anywhere, but not at every time. Omar ibn al-Khatab did not apply the prescribed punishment for theft at the time of famine, and he knew that he was responsible for helping his people. Did the Ansar al-Sharia Goup provide all the needs for the people of Yemen, so that no theft might happen? Sadly, this is the ignorant and oppressive way of applying Sharia. They forgot that Sharia is a spirit to be considered and applied. Just like what the righteous Caliphs did, may God be pleased with them! May God curse every Muslim that defames Islam!

    A lot of al-Qaeda members have let this organization down, as God the Almighty has said; “Their enmity among themselves is very great. You would think that they were united, but their hearts are divided.” All glory is to God; the rights of the Muslims will never go in vain. In fact, they will experience the acts which they have carried out against people, and maybe even stronger. In fact, al-Qaeda is not like before, given that it has become weaker and weaker for many reasons, the first of which is material funds. In fact, al-Qaeda is currently unable to collect money from all of the parties which were used to helping it. The death of Osama bin Laden has destroyed this organization, given that its strength was in this man, who was the mastermind of its criminal acts. Thus, the death of bin Laden has affected it a lot. After bin Laden, the death of Atiyah has weakened it more than before. As a matter of fact, the criminal acts of al-Qaeda are not like before, given that conditions are different. In fact, the money which used to be stolen is gone now. Thus, al-Qaeda is unable to carry out other projects without thefts. The other reason that has caused al-Qaeda members to desert the organization is the huge losses experienced by the despicable al-Qaeda because of the various arrests of al-Qaeda members in the different Arab countries. In fact, the countries most affected by the terrorist acts are Iraq, Egypt and Yemen. Indeed, all these countries are working on besieging al-Qaeda members and arresting them directly. Therefore, al-Qaeda members are currently terrified of such acts and they are despairing of their current situation. Thank God, this is what we want. We really hope that they will be dispersed and that they will not grow stronger. We hope that “their enmity among themselves is very great”. God willing, all such things will be fulfilled, thanks to the invocations of the Muslims against al-Qaeda. In fact, the Muslims have been very much harmed by their despicable and hostile terrorist acts. Thus, we hope that God will weaken them, God willing.

Pharaoh had been a despot, and he received his due punishment. In fact, the Arab nation has witnessed many violent and cruel acts due to the head of snake, Osama bin Laden. Besides, the followers of this accursed person have claimed innocent lives through their criminal operations of bombing and booby-trapping. May our dear, great, and merciful God save the Arab and Islamic nations from any evil and from the terrorist organization of al-Qaeda. In fact, this terrorist organization has harmed everything. Thus, every day I curse Osama bin Laden and I pray to God Almighty to send him to the fire in order to be tortured, because he caused many people and many families to suffer. These people hate life due to this criminal. May God protect all of the Arab and Islamic nations and may God destroy the hearts of all those who want to cause the suffering of the Islamic nation. In fact, the terrorists of the accursed Osama bin Laden want to tarnish the reputation of Islam and the Muslims, because they have worked on damaging Islam and the Muslims. Besides, Ayman al-Zawahiri and many other cowardly criminals want to dominate the Islamic nation. However, this will never be achieved.

What is your stance toward the prophetic hadith in which, the Prophet, peace be upon him, says that whoever carries the arms against us is not one of us. Hadith No. 1459, v 4, page 93 of Al-Jami Al-Tirmithi, with an authentic chain of narrators, verified by Al-Albaani. I want to say to those ignorant people that the same case can be filed before a judge and he will issue a certain result, and then another judge announces a different ruling regarding the same case, and all of them are right, despite the fact that they follow the same religion and believe in the same Prophet, peace be upon him. The religion is not deficient in terms of those who seek to complete it and the Prophet, peace be upon him, did not neglect the conveyance of the Message to come and convey it. Some people live as ignorant people and die as deviant people. One of the worst crimes is revolting against the constitution of the state and its religious symbols, as well as killing innocent Muslims and Christians. They ruled by the sword and we ask God to fight them because of the horrible crimes that they committed. We seek God's help against them.

    No one has the right to blame anyone or punish him, because God is our creator and he knows what we do. Hence, whoever steals is not a thief, but he needs money to live. Consider the people’s conditions before torturing them. Try to guide them to righteous deeds, because God does not like the oppressors, but he loves the people who love each other. Some Arab states torture people and amputate their hands, and they will be tortured on the Day of Judgment for their deeds. You will not be able to control people’s acts, because according to my ideology, this is the worst form of oppression that is practiced by the rich against the poor and the strong against the weak. Instead of amputating the hand, ask him why he did this. If it is was a habit, then punish him; but if it was done out of necessity, then the capitalists should help him by giving him a grant or employing him so that he can live and provide for his family. He confessed the crime, but he needs money to live with his children. This is all.

    Ibn Maajah narrated that Abu Hurayrah, may God be pleased with him, reported that the Prophet, peace be upon him, said, "There shall come deceptive years. The truthful shall be deemed liars, while the liars shall be believed. The honest shall be deemed dishonest, while the dishonest shall be deemed honest. And the Ruwaybidah will speak in these times." The companions, may God be pleased with them, asked: "What is Ruwaybidah, O Messenger of God?" He replied: "He is an insignificant man who shall speak on behalf of the general masses.” This honorable hadith applies to the writer of this article. There is no power except with God the Almighty. The enemies of peace from among the Muslims are worse than their infidel counterparts.
