CRIME AND PUNISHMENT

You have heard that it was said, 'Eye for eye, and
tooth for tooth.' BUT I tell you,
Do not resist an evil
person
. If someone strikes you on the right cheek,
turn to him the other also.
And if someone wants to
sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak
as well. If someone forces you to go one mile, go with
him two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do
not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from
you.  [Matthew 5:38-42]

Brothers and sisters, if someone is
caught in a sin,
you who live by the Spirit should
restore that person
gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be
tempted.  [Galatians 6:1]

Anyone who has been stealing must
steal no longer,
but must
work, doing something useful with their own
hands, that they may have something to share with
those in need.  [Ephesians 4:28]

Do
not repay evil with evil or insult with insult.
On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because
to this you were called so that you may inherit a
blessing.  [I Peter 3:9]

Do
not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do
what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible,
as far as it depends on you, live at peace with
everyone.  [Romans 12:17-18]

As to the thief, Male or female, cut off his or her
hands
: a punishment by way of example, from Allah,
for their crime: and Allah is Exalted in power.  [Surah
5:38]

The punishment of those who wage war
against Allah
and His Messenger (
Mohammed), and strive with
might and main for mischief through the land is:
execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of
hands and feet from opposite sides.
 [Surah 5:33]

"Be sure I will
cut off your hands and your feet on
apposite sides
, and I will cause you all to die on the
cross."  [Surah 7:124]

We ordained therein for them: "
Life for life, eye for
eye, nose or nose, ear for ear, tooth for tooth
,
and wounds equal for equal."  [Surah 5:45]

I will instil terror into the hearts of the
Unbelievers:
smite ye above their necks and smite all their
finger-tips off
them."  This because they contended
against Allah and His Messenger. If any contend
against Allah and His Messenger, Allah is strict in
punishment.  [Surah 8:12-13]

Therefore, when ye meet the
Unbelievers (in fight),
smite at their necks.  [Surah 47:4]
