Isis stoned to death for sex before marriage for couple in mosul_QUSAY TARIQ
Stoning, or lapidation, is a form of capital punishment whereby a group throws stones at a person until he or she dies. No individual among the group can be identified as the one who kills the subject. This is in contrast to the case of a judicial executioner. Slower than other forms of execution, stoning is a form of execution by torture.
Stoning is called Rajm (Arabic: رجم) in Islamic literature, and it remains a legal form of judicial punishment or an extrajudicial tribal practice in many Middle-Eastern and South Asian countries. Several countries have also sentenced people to death by stoning, but have not carried out the sentences. In modern times, allegations of stoning are politically sensitive, as in case of Iran, which describes such allegations as political propaganda
Sickening images have emerged of a man and woman appearing to be stoned to death by Islamic State militants for 'having sex before marriage'.
The images show a large crowd gathered around the pair in ISIS-controlled city Mosul, in northern Iraq, as the bound and blindfolded couple are murdered in the street.
A charge sheet is said to have been read to the crowd accusing the man and woman - both believed to be in their 20s - of 'fornication' and announcing their barbaric punishment.
A large pile of stones and rocks were then hurled by around 12 jihadis, leaving the road in the public square covered in blood.
And come here to the main theme A crowd of men, women and children watched as the couple were stoned to death in the town square.
Shocking new images have emerged showing Islamic State militants stoning a blindfolded and bound man and woman to death in Iraq.
The couple were sentenced to death for having sex before marriage.
A large crowd, including children and women, gather at the scene in the town square in Mosul in Nineveh province, to watch as the couple are murdered.
The bearded IS executioner-in-chief Abu Ansar al-Ansari pronounces the order of stoning for "fornication."
An Islamic State militant with a yellow scarf covering his face is seen using a microphone and PA system to read out the charges against the couple, as the crowd jostles for a better view.
Stones are piled up in preparation for the killing.
A large pile of stones are gathered in the middle of the road. The ISIS militants then begin throwing them at the blindfolded couple, whose hands are bound, rendering them unable to defend themselves and helpless.
Pools of blood appear in the road, before the man and woman finally die of their injuries.
IS fighters routinely carry out such horrific executions in accordance with their radical interpretation of Sharia law.
On March 24, thousands of protesters took to the streets in Kabul to demonstrate following the murder of a 27-year-old woman who was accused of burning the Koran.
Pools of blood could be seen in the square where the blindfolded couple were murdered.
The victim, named only as 'Farkhunda' and who is believed to have been mentally ill, was lynched by a crowd of men near the Shah-e Doh Shamshira shrine and mosque after she was allegedly seen burning a copy of the Koran.
She was killed by the mob with sticks and stones on 19 March, before being thrown from a roof and run over by a car outside a local mosque. A graphic video of the murder was circulated on social media.
She was buried this week with women's rights activists carrying the coffin at a funeral attended by hundreds of people.
Add to There is no reference to stoning in the Quran.
The Qur'an forbids all sexual intercourse outside the marital BOND between a man and a woman as sinful, but makes no distinction between illegal sex outside marriage and illegal sex between unmarried man and woman. Quran in verse 24:2 declares the punishment for consensual but illegal sex as flogging a 100 times, but makes no mention of stoning. Some modern Muslim scholars suggest that stoning to death should not be part of Sharia, because only Quran should be the basis of sharia, and hadiths should not be considered as source of sharia. The vast majority of Muslims and most Islamic scholars, however, consider hadiths, which describe the words, conduct and example set by Muhammad during his life, as a source of law and religious authority second only to the Quran. They consider sahih hadiths to be a valid source of Sharia, justifying their belief on Quranic verse 33.21, and other verses
