Steve Wells: How to Deal With Treacherous Wife.

Hmm. Some atheists just can't leave it alone and had to drag everyone down with him. Is it because he's too afraid of ending up being nothing? Having nothing to hope for after the end of the road had reached him? Or is it vice versa? Now let's check out this piece of writing that I've encountered in the net. See what you guys think of it.

Taken from:

"What to do with an unfaithful wife: The Bible vs. the Quran"

...Boy, that's going to be hard to beat! But let's see what the Quran says about it.

Luckily, the Quran deals with the same situation: a man who suspects that his wife has been unfaithful. Except that here the husband claims to be a witness of his wife's infidelity.

For those who accuse their wives but have no witnesses except themselves... Quran 24:6a

Now you might think that would be enough to prove the wife's adultery, but it isn't, because just two verses ago, the Quran says that four witnesses are required to convict a wife of adultery.

Those who accuse honourable women but bring not four witnesses, scourge them (with) eighty stripes and never (afterward) accept their testimony - They indeed are evil-doers. Quran 24:4

So what's a husband to do in this case? Well, Allah has that all figured out. The husband can just swear that it's true four separate times and that way he can serve as four separate witnesses.

For those who accuse their wives but have no witnesses except themselves let the testimony of one of them be four testimonies, (swearing) by Allah that he is of those who speak the truth. Quran 24:6

How cool is that?

Oh and then, swear one more time, just to make it all official like. And this time ask Allah to curse you if you are lying. That ought to do it. (It's sort of like saying, "Cross my heart and hope to die" when swearing. No one would lie doing that!)

And yet a fifth, invoking the curse of Allah on him if he is of those who lie. Quran 24:7

So now there are five witnesses and we can get on with the punishment.

The woman can appeal the case, though, by swearing five times that she is innocent.

And it shall avert the punishment from her if she bear witness before Allah four times that the thing he saith is indeed false, And a fifth (time) that the wrath of Allah be upon her if he speaketh truth. Quran 24:8-9

I don't know what happens then. What do you do when you have two people that cross their hearts and hope to die on opposite sides of the same case? The Quran doesn't say and I don't think the Supreme Court has ever had a case like that.

So that's what the Bible and the Quran say a husband should do with an unfaithful wife.

Which procedure do you think is the best?

My response and let's see if he would publish it in his blog.

You didn't finish up the story, what happened to the wife and husband after they have taken the oath that they are on the right side?

Finish your story.

If not, those who are not that dwindling in whatever you are in, won't be that convinced that you know what you need to know to talk about it in the first place.

1. The four witnesses’ requirement showed just how hard it is to apply the punishment in the first place. It can only be applied when the requirements are fulfilled, for no one in the right mind would do it openly in front of strangers like a chicken.

2. A husband that can't bring four pious witnesses have to swear the oath, and no earthly rules and regulations nor punishments fall upon the accused wife nor the accuser husband. (The curse of Allah will fall upon the liar, remember?)

3. What's your solution in dealing with this matter?

4. Be a kind moderator and publish me, if you are truly dwindling in unbelief.

5. A copy of this is going to be out in my blog.

6. Good luck!
