Islam is not the Cause of Honor Killings. It’s Part of the Solution

Did you know? Criminal law in the Middle East today was shaped by the Ottoman Criminal Code of 1858, which was issued as part of the failing Ottoman Empire’s efforts to imitate its European rivals. The Code was little more than a translation of the French Criminal Code of 1832, copying word for word its lax punishment for honor crimes.

      I say;
      Why are so many Church fathers worse sex offenders? and Pastors like Jimmy Swaggart, Eddie Lee Long etc. worse sex offenders? Why are so many Christians committing sins? Strip clubs everywhere in Christian dominated countries. Why did the evangelical Christians voted for Donald Trump who grabs women private parts? Why will more than 80% of evangelical Christians voted for Donald Trump who treats women with disrespect?

      The answer will be that, a Christian’s choice or a Muslim’s choice must not be necessarily Christian of Islam. It is just a choice, no matter how more it is.

      I can bring so many news and videos where Christians are committing crimes in the name of Christianity. You will say they are not Christians. Why that double standards? Dr. James White is against the double standards you always show to Muslims.

      Thanks.

    • Instead of “church fathers”, it would better to say “some Roman Catholic priests”, because it sounds like you are talking about the “Early Church Fathers”, and that is not true; they were not sex offenders, etc.

      I am not making a double standard, there is a difference between “crimes of passion” and “honor killings” as to their motivations. Both are from sin and wickedness and pride and vengeance, spite, hatred, rancor in the heart, but “honor killings” in the east has an additional thing with it (seeking to pay back from broken “honor” and “stained reputation on the family, against the offended self”, etc. and also there are examples of this in Hadith and Sira and Muhammad the prophet of Islam, ordered some of these honor killings.

But what is the difference that eastern and especially Muslim cultures have many people, especially men, who take the law into their own hands and kill people (wives, daughters) who have stained their honor? (without even a trial, as many times they are just accused or suspected, but not proven of the dis-honor.)

    • I agree that people do that also in western cultures, but the difference is that in the Hadith and Sira, there are examples of “honor killings” done by Muhammad and his followers to take revenge for those that insulted him or did some other crime.

      We have an explanation because the root is the sinful nature of wickedness on the inside in the heart (Mark 7:20-23; Genesis 6:5), but Islam does not officially believe in the sinful nature, inherited from Adam (although there is actually some evidence from the Islamic texts that indicate some kind of inherited sinful nature), and inherent in all human beings from birth. Islam seems to teach and emphasize that it is the environment, upbringing, circumstances, bad parents, poverty, oppression, etc. are the problem, not the sinful human heart.

  9. In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
    Islam does not give permission to any individual to kill a family or clan member based on his belief that the victim brought dishonour upon the family, clan, or community. Only the Islamic Court can carry out the punishments (hudood) set out by the Shariah. (See: Shaami 6/104, Darul Ma’rifa)
    If someone’s family member does an act contrary to the teachings of Islam, then it is his responsibility to amicably stop the person from violating the injunctions of the Shariah and to advise him/her.

    A person who accuses another of committing adultery and cannot bring four witnesses who clearly saw the act taking place, is guilty of falsely accusing someone of adultery, the punishment for which is being flogged with eighty stripes. (This punishment, too, is to be carried out by the Court).

    Allah, the Exalted, says:

    Flog those who accuse any of the chaste women (of committing adultery), but fail to backup (their charges) with four eyewitnesses — flog them with eighty lashes, and thereafter do not accept their testimony ever again. Surely, they are the wicked ones. (Quran 24:4)

    According to Islam, the punishment for wrongfully killing someone is very severe:

    If a man kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell, to abide therein (For ever). And the wrath and the curse of Allah are upon him, and a dreadful penalty is prepared for him. (Quran 4:93)

    In short, honour killing is not permitted according to Islam. Encyclopaedia Britannica has correctly stated:

    “Such “honour killings” are in fact violations of both civil and Islamic law, but perpetrators frequently use religious reasons to defend their actions, thereby giving the crime a veneer of justification.”[i]

  10. By Abu Amina Elias for FaithinAllah.org

    Question:

    Does Islam let men kill their wives or daughters to protect their family honor?

    Answer:

    In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

    Vigilante killing for any reason is murder and forbidden in Islam, no matter what reason or excuse the murderer might have.

    Allah said:

    وَلَا تَقْتُلُوا النَّفْسَ الَّتِي حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ إِلَّا بِالْحَقِّ ۚ ذَٰلِكُمْ وَصَّاكُم بِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ

    Do not kill a soul that Allah has forbidden except by right of justice. This He has instructed you that you may reason.

    Surah Al-An’am 6:151

    So-called “honor killings” are cases of men who have killed their wives or daughters because they committed adultery or were involved in another scandalous behavior. They murder their family members due to cultural pressure and shame put upon their family name from society. These criminal actions are absolutely forbidden because it is not permissible in Islam for anyone to take the law into their own hands. The Prophet explicitly prohibited Muslims from punishing adultery themselves, for legal punishment requires due process from lawful authorities and adultery specifically necessitates four eye-witnesses before punishment can be applied.

    Abu Huraira reported: Sa’d ibn Ubadah said, “O Messenger of Allah, if I find another man with my wife, should I leave him alone until I bring four witnesses?” The Messenger of Allah said yes. Sa’d said, “Never! By the one who sent you with the truth, if that happened to me I would quickly grab the sword!” The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

    اسْمَعُوا إِلَى مَا يَقُولُ سَيِّدُكُمْ إِنَّهُ لَغَيُورٌ وَأَنَا أَغْيَرُ مِنْهُ وَاللَّهُ أَغْيَرُ مِنِّي

    Listen to what your leader is saying. Verily, he has a sense of honor and I have a greater sense of honor than him and Allah has a greater sense of honor than me.

    Source: Sahih Muslim 1498, Grade: Sahih

    In this tradition, the Prophet forbade a man from harming his wife even if he caught her being intimate with another man, despite his sense of honor being offended. Allah has a greater sense of honor than anyone, yet He has forbidden the believers from applying legal punishments without authority and due process.

    In fact, the issue of honor killings has nothing to do with what is prescribed and taught by Islam, but rather it involves sensitive cultural dynamics that are not unique to Muslims. Jews, Christians, and Hindus have likewise murdered their family members out of a sense of honor.

    According to journalist Nicole Pope:

    Articles in Western publications often describe honor killings as an Islamic tradition. Summary executions of women carried out in the name of honor are often given a religious cover, but the practice predates the advent of Islam and is found in other cultures. Around the Mediterranean, honor killings are featured in countries like Greece, Spain, and Italy until a few decades ago. They have now largely disappeared but some cases are still reported in South America… Condemning Islam itself for honor killings ignores the fact that these crimes were committed long before the religion came along. The Quran is strict on adultery, but it does not condone vigilante justice.

    Source: Pope, N. (2012). Honor killings in the twenty-first century. p. 119,122

    Furthermore, domestic and family violence is a universal phenomenon in all cultures and religions. Men in Western cultures murder their wives or girlfriends after they have been caught being intimate with another man. Is this not similar to an honor killing? Rather, the difference is that the media often reports Western domestic violence as individual, random, and aberrant, but domestic violence committed by Muslims is portrayed as regular, religiously-sanctioned, and evidence of a misogynistic culture. Therefore, the reality of the situation is obscured in order to promote a self-serving narrative of the “civilized” West saving Muslim women from a “backwards” East. Nevertheless, it is the duty of Muslim scholars, leaders, and laypeople to do what they can to end the phenomena of honor killings.

    Some anti-Muslim writers have claimed Islam justifies killing children and subsequently honor killings in the following report:

    Ibn Abbas reported:

    وَإِنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم لَمْ يَكُنْ يَقْتُلُ الصِّبْيَانَ فَلاَ تَقْتُلِ الصِّبْيَانَ إِلاَّ أَنْ تَكُونَ تَعْلَمُ مَا عَلِمَ الْخَضِرُ مِنَ الصَّبِيِّ الَّذِي قَتَلَ ‏

    The Messenger of Allah did not kill children, so you should not kill them unless you know what Al-Khidr knew about the child he killed.

    Source: Sahih Muslim 1812, Grade: Sahih

    They claim it is permissible to kill children because of the story in the Quran in which Al-Khidr killed a child. However, a key point of the story is that Al-Khidr did so only because Allah revealed to him that the boy would become a rebel. Since it is understood that Al-Khidr had knowledge of the unseen which did not belong even to Moses, Ibn Abbas is actually using the story as a proof against killing children.

    An-Nawawi comments on this tradition, saying:

    مَعْنَاهُ أَنَّ الصِّبْيَانَ لَا يَحِلُّ قَتْلُهُمْ وَلَا يَحِلُّ لَكَ أَنْ تَتَعَلَّقَ بِقِصَّةِ الْخَضِرِ وَقَتْلِهِ صَبِيًّا فَإِنَّ الْخَضِرَ مَا قَتَلَهُ إِلَّا بِأَمْرِ اللَّهِ تَعَالَى لَهُ عَلَى التَّعْيِينِ كَمَا قَالَ فِي آخِرِ الْقِصَّةِ وَمَا فَعَلْتُهُ عَنْ أَمْرِي فَإِنْ كُنْتَ أَنْتَ تَعْلَمُ مِنْ صَبِيٍّ ذَلِكَ فَاقْتُلْهُ وَمَعْلُومٌ أَنَّهُ لَا عِلْمَ لَهُ بِذَلِكَ فَلَا يَجُوزُ لَهُ الْقَتْلُ

    The meaning is that it is not lawful to kill children and it is not lawful to use the story of Al-Khidr killing the boy. Indeed, Al-Khidr only killed the boy because Allah commanded him as this was specific to him, just as he said in the end of the story: I did not do it of my own accord (18:82). So if you know about the boy as he did then you may kill him, but it is well-known that no one can know that, so it is not permissible to kill children.

    Source: Sharh Sahih Muslim

    In conclusion, honor killings have no justification in Islam. They are criminal acts that are committed due to the pressures of culture and other irreligious reasons. Muslims should make every effort to stop this phenomena from continuing.

    Success comes from Allah, and Allah knows best.

    Ibn Kathir, The Battles of the Prophet, pp. 183-4— “Allah, Most High, ordered the believers to prohibit the disbelievers from entering or coming near the sacred Mosque. On that, Quraish thought that this would reduce their profits from trade. Therefore, Allah, Most High, compensated them and ordered them to fight the people of the Book until they embrace Islam or pay the Jizyah. Allah says, “O ye who believe! Truly the pagans are unclean; so let them not, after this year of theirs, approach the sacred Mosque. And if ye fear poverty, soon will Allah enrich you, if He wills, out of His bounty, for Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, from among the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” Therefore, the Messenger of Allah decided to fight the Romans in order to call them to Islam.”

    Tafsir Ibn Kathir (on Qur’an 9:30)—”Fighting the Jews and Christians is legislated because they are idolaters and disbelievers. Allah the Exalted encourages the believers to fight the polytheists, disbelieving Jews and Christians, who uttered this terrible statement and utter lies against Allah, the Exalted. As for the Jews, they claimed that Uzayr was the son of God, Allah is free of what they attribute to Him. As for the misguidance of Christians over Isa, it is obvious.”
