Why cut off people's hands? 8 Years, 1 Month ago Karma: 0
Many people who know nothing else of Islam have heard that the Koran has a verse about punishing a thief by means of cutting off a hand.

The relevant verse from the Koran is:
"Cut off the hands of a male or female thief as a punishment for their deed and lesson for them from God (5:38)"

In practice, the penalty is extremely rare, and is applied in cases where there are serious mitigating circumstances. The penalty is even unheard of in some Muslim nations.

In the Sunna, the Prophet Muhammad offered detailed guidance on when a person's hand may be severed as punishment for the crime of theft. For instance, according to the Prophet, this penalty may never be imposed for the crime of stealing anything edible or a person who steals as a result of need.

It is important to understand that imposing penalties for theft or other serious crimes is a judicial matter and no one other than a qualified, totally impartial judge, subject to many restrictions, may pass such a sentence.
