The Verses of Death in the Quran: 2

museumquran

Quran (5:33)“The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”

In this verse the Quran permits Muslims to Kill and torture whoever are in war with Allah and His messenger which lead to Muslim Jurisprudence writers to use this as a punishment for any body involved in what they define as “Being in war with Allah and his messenger”

ISIS is using the same Verse today to crucify people in Iraq and Syria who commit different forms of what they view as sins punishable by killing and crucifixion.
