Punishment of RAPE

RAPE: Most people think that the Qur’an prescribes no punishment for the rapist. But the Qur’an claims to be a well perfected Book and that it covers all things that were necessary to be revealed (Tibiyaanan likulli shayi 16:89). The Qur’an does not use Zina-bil-Jabr (forced sex) for good reason since it prescribes grievous punishment even for harassing or bothering women. The term used in 33:60 derives from Rajf = Creating alarm = Bothering = Frightening = Harassing = Causing to tremble = Inciting fear. The punishment for men creating Rajf among women could vary from exile to slaying depending on the circumstances and extent of Rajf caused by the accused]

33:60 Thus it is: If the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is disease, and those who create turmoil in the City do not desist (from harassing women), We shall give you control over them (O Prophet). And then they will be your neighbors for no more than a short while. [See context 33:59]

33:61 Accursed, they shall be seized wherever found and slain one and all. [This is the penalty for men who keep annoying innocent women on the street, assault them or rape them]

33:62 That was the way of God among those who lived before. And never will you find any change in God’s way.
