Quran [33:60-62]
« on: January 04, 2016, 01:23:14 AM »
Salaam to All

Here is the translation of Quran[33:60-62]:

If the hypocrites and those in whose hearts is disease and those who spread rumors in al-Madinah do not cease, We will surely incite you against them; then they will not remain your neighbors therein except for a little.
Accursed wherever they are found, [being] seized and massacred completely.
[This is] the established way of God with those who passed on before; and you will not find in the way of God any change.

According to Quran[5:32], death penalty is only allowed for case of murder and corruption in the land. Spreading rumors and being a hypocrite clearly is not act of murder, does Quran consider the act of Spreading rumors and state of being a hypocrite corruption in the land?

Depends on the nature of the hypocrisy. You wouldn't give the death penalty to a little girl spreading rumors in her school, even though she's a hypocrite. She's spreading corruption, but it's not major, legitimate corruption. However, you might give the death penalty to a federal double-agent or a national spy in a war. This is definitely major corruption. It depends on the magnitude of the crime.

Of course, it's guilty until proven innocent. You can't declare someone a hypocrite unless you're absolutely sure.
