Hudood are applied even if there are those who accuse it

Weekly Sultaniyya Hadith Source Week No: 17


Hudood are applied even if there are those who accuse it

Hadith 20, Establish the limits/ Hudood of Allah near and far, and do not let the blame of the blamers affect you (Ibn Maja, Hakim)

Commentary:

A: The application of the Hudood is a severe punishment, intended only to be used in those circumstances which have been legislated by Allah (SWT) and have been proven beyond a shadow of doubt. This is to protect the most closely held and critical values of the society, such as security and well being. As such when the conditions are met the Hudood should be applied irrespective of those who would blame and accuse those carrying out the punishment with their subjective (and currently failing) views of how the society should be protected.

B: According to Imam Suyuti the phrase "near and far" can intend closeness in terms of relationship - so that personal relationship should not influence the application of Hudood, or can mean closeness to the rule (the powerful and the weak) - so that Hudood is applied equally on all stratus of society irrespective of their social position or closeness to the ruling power. And this second meaning is confirmed by the next narration mentioned.

Narrated: Abu Huraira
The Prophet (SAW) allowed the sale of the dates of the Araya for ready dates by estimating the former which should be estimated as less than five Awsuq or five Awsuq. (Dawud, the sub-narrator is not sure as to the right amount.)

Supplication said after the last tashahhud and before salam
اللّهُـمَّ اغْـفِرْ لي ما قَدَّمْـتُ وَما أَخَّرْت ، وَما أَسْـرَرْتُ وَما أَعْلَـنْت ، وَما أَسْـرَفْت ، وَما أَنْتَ أَعْـلَمُ بِهِ مِنِّي . أَنْتَ المُقَـدِّمُ، وَأَنْتَ المُـؤَخِّـرُ لا إِلهَ إِلاّ أَنْـت

O Allah, forgive me for those sins which have come to pass as well as those which shall come to pass, and those I have committed in secret as well as those I have made public, and where I have exceeded all bounds as well as those things about which You are more knowledgeable. You are Al-Muqaddim and Al-Mu-akhkhir. None has the right to be worshipped except You. Meaning of Al-Muqaddim and Al-Mu-akhkhir: Allah puts forward and favours whom He wills from amongst His creation just as He defers and holds back whom He wills in accordance to His wisdom. E.g. Favouring man over the rest of creation, favouring the Prophets over the rest of mankind, favouring Muhammad (saw) over all the Prophets and Messengers...etc.
