Allah Almighty Says in the Noble Quran (what means):

Quote
“[As for] the thief, the male and the female, amputate their hands in recompense for what they earned [i.e. committed] as a deterrent [punishment] from Allah. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.” [Quran 5:38

Because cutting off the hand is a serious matter, it should not be done for just any case of theft. A combination of conditions must be fulfilled before the hand of a thief is cut off. These conditions are as follows:

1- The thing should have been taken by stealth; if it was not taken by stealth, then the hand should not be cut off, such as when property has been seized by force in front of other people, because in this case the owner of the property could have asked for help to stop the thief.

2- The stolen property should be something of worth, because that which is of no worth has no sanctity, such as musical instruments, wine and pigs.

2- The value of the stolen property should be above a certain limit, which is three Islamic Dirhams or a quarter of an Islamic Dinar, or their equivalent in other currencies.

3- The stolen property should have been taken from a place where it had been put away, i.e., a place where people usually put their property, such as a cupboard, for example.

4- The theft itself has to be proven, either by the testimony of two qualified witnesses or by the confession of the thief twice.

5- The person from whom the property was stolen has to ask for it back; if he does not, then (the thief’s) hand does not have to be cut off.

However, Umar ibn Al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “Do not cut the hand of the thief who steals dates in the year of famine.”

As'salamu Alaikum dear brothers,

Welcome to the board, brother Moassis.  I ask Allah Almighty to help you strengthen your faith through this board.  Ameen.

I just want to add that in non-Muslim lands, the Islamic Laws (stoning to death, cutting the hand, flogging, etc...) DO NOT apply.  So, if you know of anyone who has done a sin, then he/she is not obligated under the Islamic Laws in the non-Muslim countries, or even in the Muslim countries that do not apply the Islamic Law.

The application of the Islamic Laws is not to be executed upon people by mere individuals.  It is for the Muslim State and Muslim Court to convict and apply.

I hope this helps, insha'Allah.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah

Please give me answer of my questions. And please tell me briefly point wise, not explaining one point what are messages against humanity given by Rashad Khalifa to the world. Please don't feel bad, only I want to know whether u have some sympathy or some pity in your heart for Rashad Khalifa or not.

I'm satisfied he was killed and he deserved,he wanting to cause a war within Islam by making another Sect,and he also wanted to change the Quran,
also he was a Quranist and believed Beating Wives were OKAY.
