Title Abstract Action(s)
قرآن اور بائبیل میں مذکور سزائیں اور ان پر اعتراضات: تجزیہ و تقابل Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, has created human beings with an innate disposition for peace. This is why the elimination of all forms of crimes from any society is essential to establish a peaceful society. Both the Quran and the Bible suggest various punishments to eradicate these crimes. However, during modern times, some Western and Eastern philosophers, along with certain scholars, hold theories that consider the penal systems of religions, particularly the Islamic system of crime and punishment, as non-natural and hostile to humanity. They raise objections in various ways against the punishments mentioned in the Quran and the Bible. This perspective arises from a lack of understanding of the philosophy behind crime and punishment. The purpose of implementing punishments is not merely to inflict pain upon individuals, but rather to evoke a sense of aversion to criminal acts and to establish a stable and enduring society where the latent human capacities for peace and justice can be realized effectively. This research aims to compile objections against the punishments mentioned in the Quran and the Bible and, through a research-oriented approach, provide answers to these objections in light of the Islamic teachings. Critics of Islamic punishments argue that they are severe, barbaric, and contrary to basic human rights. On the other hand, throughout history, all religions have considered the idea of punishment for crimes and have, in different epochs, provided laws and regulations for the realization of punishment and its implementation as per the divine scriptures revealed for human guidance. The Bible also contains injunctions for severe punishments for crimes. Similarly, Islam has introduced a system of reward and punishment to curb these crimes, with the intention of preventing injustice and establishing peace within society. Hence, it is imperative to implement these punishments with complete justice to foster a strong and peaceful society. In conclusion, the discussion regarding punishments and criticisms mentioned in the Quran and the Bible provides insights into the deeper philosophical understanding of crime and punishment. The purpose of these systems is to deter criminal behavior, foster societal tranquility, and promote the ultimate goals of humanity.
