Salute the Sultan! Brunei Reinstates Hudud for Sexual Deviance

If you have had a rough week or are feeling down in the dumps, I have just the news to cheer you up. The Muslim country of Brunei is implementing hudud to crack down on sodomites and fornicators!

Reuters:

Brunei has defended its right to implement Islamic laws that would allow death by stoning for adultery and homosexuality against growing global criticism.

Brunei, a Muslim-majority former British protectorate with a population of around 400,000, will implement the Sharia laws from April 3, punishing sodomy, adultery and rape with the death penalty, including by stoning, and theft with amputation.

The laws, elements of which were first adopted in 2014 and which have been rolled out in phases since then, will be fully implemented from next week, the prime minister’s office said in a statement on Saturday.

“The (Sharia) Law, apart from criminalizing and deterring acts that are against the teachings of Islam, also aims to educate, respect and protect the legitimate rights of all individuals, society or nationality of any faiths and race,” the statement said.

Some aspects of the laws will apply to non-Muslims.

This is exactly right. The Sharia protects all of our rights, individually and communally. When rectum-sex enthusiasts are allowed to promote their gender-bending degeneracy openly, that deeply harms all of us. That brings down the moral character of society. That destroys the sanctity of marriage. That teaches the world that sexual desire — no matter how base, how deviant, how contrary to God’s will — is acceptable to pursue and, in fact, must be pursued.

The LGBT indoctrination program, however, doesn’t want you to recognize these harms. They want you to think gay sex acts are “victimless” and that marriage between men and women is not a sanctified institution. Rather, marriage, according to them, can be remolded into anything that society chooses: two men, two women, two men and one woman, three women and a horse, etc. There is nothing special or unique about the relationship between men and women that forecloses the possibility of LGBT marital options.

But we do reject this social constructionist nonsense. Allah created human beings in a certain way. Our bodies and minds are created in a certain way and only certain types of relationships allow human beings to flourish in this world and the next, while other types of behaviors lead to destruction and widespread suffering. LGBT relationships and relationships outside the confines of Islamic law are inherently destructive. And Allah tells us this clearly in the Quran when He describes one such society that had fallen into the muck of base degeneracy was destroyed: Qawm Lut.

I’m sure the non-sodomites who lived among Qawm Lut and sanctioned that behavior and, hence, were destroyed with the rest of the city don’t think homosexual behavior is a victimless act.

Brunei, which neighbors two Malaysian states on Borneo island, already enforces Islamic teachings more strictly than Malaysia and Indonesia, the other majority Muslim countries in southeast Asia. The sale of alcohol is banned and evangelism by other religions is forbidden.

The country does not hold elections, but any discontent is assuaged with generous government polices including zero taxes, subsidized housing, and free healthcare and education.

Time to move?

The expected implementation of the strict Islamic laws has drawn widespread criticism. Politicians in Europe and the United States have attacked the plans and raised concerns with Brunei.

“Stoning people to death for homosexuality or adultery is appalling and immoral,” former U.S. vice president Joe Biden said in a Twitter post on Friday. “There is no excuse – not culture, not tradition – for this kind of hate and inhumanity.”

Oscar-winning actor George Clooney has called for a boycott of luxury hotels owned by The Brunei Investment Company, such as the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Dorchester in London and the Plaza Athenee in Paris.

I think Muslims need to counteract any boycott by making Brunei their next vacation destination spot. Maybe some of these expensive spiritual tourism tours led by shuyukh can make Brunei the next go-to site, maybe attend a caning or two so Western Muslims can experience first hand what implementing hudud actually means. Just a thought.

By the way, how silly that these Western politicians and celebrities can’t stand it that a Muslim country implements the Sharia. They are frothing with anger. Isn’t it great?

  1. Hahahahahaha, I love this article, may Allah protect Brunei and make it a model for other Muslim countries to follow suit. Great article Daniel.

  2. They just gave the USA a perfect pretext to expand their influence in the South China Sea and peg China back under the guise of spreading “freedom” and “democracy”. As it happens they’ve got a lot of oil too.

    • Welcome to the club as I m one too. That was my first thought too. A sultan who leads a life that is way too extravagant calling for hadud ordinance is kinda suspicious. Secondly USA would never let a Muslim country thrive or leave it on its own if it wasn’t in bed with her. And that too an oil rich country.
      I smell a rat.
      Sultan is another prostitute of the western powers who cares only about his whims and desires. Just my 2 cents

  3. Excuse my tin-foil, but what if this is a “Pulse nightclub” sort of event on a political scale to trigger a response from so-called Muslim leaders of today, given Trumps timely plan to end criminalization of LGBT.

    Maybe there is a legitimate excuse over why this law was enacted now, or maybe we need to examine the Brunei sultanate a bit more and find out if this action was sincerely for the cause of Allah or an order from the West.

    If its the former, then may Allah protect the land and its people, if its the latter…. may Allah keep us steadfast on our deen.

      • Very good point. I don’t know much about Brunei except that the sultan is extreeeemely extravagant. Very suspicious to see such a stand being made from him. It could be 4D chess.

        It would be nice for westernized muslims to see religion uncompromised in person but the reality is that many of them might flat out become open murtads. Their level of Imaan is that low.

      • The response from western Hollywood degenerates to boycott the presidents hotel chains – raises a question. Why does the president of an country that wants Sharia law have such investments in the first place?

  4. Already the order of hudud was from quran like nuzum so it’s great to bring back the law in entire world to protect illegal sexuality and make easy marriage

  5. I don’t see how this is a good thing. Whilst homosexual acts and adultery are disordered, they do not harm society to the extent that rape does. Even if it can be argued that adultery does harm society (and I’m inclined to agree that it does), death is too high a penalty for adultery. Homosexual acts do not harm society provided they take place behind closed doors (one can agree that open sexual behaviour of all kinds is harmful), so punishing them for said act is unjust.

    • 1) These death penalty is not for the mere crime itself but for it’s afront to society as a whole, because 4 pious witnesses are a pre-requesite for the dealth penalty. Spying is not permissible in Islam and would exclude any spy from being a pious witness. Any less than that and you just get some lesser punishment.

      2) The severity of the punishments is not for the sake of societal benefit but as expiation from hell in the afterlife. It’s application is literally a minor manifestation of hell on Earth that is unpleasant for everyone.

      3) Because of 2) in the life of the prophet, the only situations of such punishments occured at the request of criminal, whilst the prophet both encouraged and practised seeking for all reasonable excuses and doubts that would make the application of the death penalty unnecessary.

      Here’s the report of three cases:

      A man from the tribe of Aslam came to the Prophet (ﷺ) and confessed that he had committed an illegal sexual intercourse. The Prophet (ﷺ) turned his face away from him till the man bore witness against himself four times. The Prophet (ﷺ) said to him, “Are you mad?” He said “No.” He said, “Are you married?” He said, “Yes.” Then the Prophet (ﷺ) ordered that he be stoned to death, and he was stoned to death at the Musalla. When the stones troubled him, he fled, but he was caught and was stoned till he died. The Prophet (ﷺ) spoke well of him and offered his funeral prayer. [Saheeh Bukhari]

      Then a woman of Ghamid, a branch of Azd, came to him and said: Messenger of of Allah, purify me, whereupon he said: Woe be upon you; go back and beg forgiveness from Allah and turn to Him in repentance. She said: I find that you intend to send me back as you sent back Ma’iz. b. Malik. He (the Holy, Prophet) said: What has happened to you? She said that she had become pregnant as a result of fornication. He (the Holy Prophet) said: Is it you (who has done that)? She said: Yes. He (the Holy Prophet) said to her: (You will not be punished) until you deliver what is there in your womb. One of the Ansar became responsible for her until she was delivered (of the child). He (that Ansari) came to Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) and said the woman of Ghamid has given birth to a child. He (the Holy Prophet) said: In that case we shall not stone her and so leave her infant with none to suckle him. One of the Ansar got up and said: Allah’s Apostle, let the responsibility of his suckling be upon me. She was then stoned to death. [Saheeh Muslim]

      “A woman from Juhainah confessed before the Prophet (ﷺ) that she had committed adultery, and she said: ‘I am pregnant.’ So the Prophet (ﷺ) called for her guardian and said: ‘Be good to her and if she gives birth to her child then tell me.’ So he did so, and then he (ﷺ) gave the order that her clothes be bound tightly around her. Then he ordered her to be stoned and she was stoned. Then he performed (funeral) Salat for her. So ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab said to him: ‘O Messenger of Allah! You stoned her then you prayed for her?!’ He said: ‘She has repented a repentance that, if distributed among seventy of the people of Al-Madinah, it would have sufficed them. Have you ever seen something more virtuous than her sacrificing herself for the sake of Allah?'” [ Saheeh Muslim ]

    • @ S.N Oh man…you need to get some real classess on Islam.
      Such a lame comment n observation with all due respect

  6. Muslim liberalism is a convoluted, hasty, ill-thought out response to their increasingly weak position in the societies they live in

    • “Muslim liberalism” is a contradiction in terms. Liberalism by definition is unislamic and Islam by definition is not liberalistic. Islam means submission to the will of God: meaning your opinions, feelings, lusts, desires, wants etc. should not overrule the decree of God, while liberalism says engage in all of that…the only boundary is the non-aggression principle: effectively meaning if you have two consenting adult individuals/parties everything becomes fair game. If you want to use drugs go ahead, fornication or adultery no problemo, exploitative financial practices…

  7. “Indeed, the Sultan and his equally decadent brother, Prince Jefri, were dubbed “constant companions in hedonism” in 2011 by Vanity Fair. He lives in a palace with 1,788 rooms, 257 bathrooms, five swimming pools, a mosque, a banquet hall that holds 5,000 people and a 110-car garage. When he turned 50, the Sultan built a stadium, invited Michael Jackson to perform in it and paid him $17 million for three concerts.

    Jefri, 59, maintains a separate pleasure palace and once owned a 152-foot yacht called Tits; he named its tenders Nipple 1 and Nipple 2, and could never understand why others often found that juvenile and crass. Here and abroad, the brothers are infamous for their sex parties and their harems composed mainly of underage girls.”

    • The response from western Hollywood degenerates to boycott the presidents hotel chains – raises a question. Why does the president of an country that wants Sharia law have such investments in the first place?

    • Eh there is a quite a difference between the UN charter of human rights vs the Cairo declaration. I suggest you read about the differences to develop a better understanding of actual human rights as laid out by the Creator

      • Did anyone speak directly to the Creator to know that He approves of gays being killed? No.
        Not everyone has the same understanding of the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. It is very likely that the story was not about homosexuality at all, actually.

        If I were you I would be very cautious in speaking on the behalf of God to advocate for such crimes.

    • Rose is a pathetic troll thats for sure.
      Go comment on the degenerate sites that support your filthy vision of celebrating deviant behavious n filthy acts

      • 1) Why are you insulting me?
        2) Where did I say I support filthy acts? In fact, killing people is a filthy act and as you can see I don’t support it.

        Peace.

      • Rose, any Jew could tell you that “killing” is vague and to be split into two categories: execution, and murder. (Actually a third applies as well, warfare, but we are here dealing with life in a state of shalom.)
        Murder is filthy and forbidden. But the lawfully-instituted state is, by definition, the entity which holds the monopoly on violence; and if there is a murderer or a molester about, the state has the right and the DUTY to end that threat.
        To sum up, Rose: you are being insulted because you have engaged in bad-faith arguments. Any Jew could also tell you about THAT. It is permissible to lie to enemies in war; it is impermissible to fork your tongue against those you hope to convince.

        As for the Muslims here, although I am not one, I imagine the Muslims have to be chagrined that a kitabi must school you upon the basic ethics common to any civilised religion.

        Peace upon those who follow G-d’s guidance.

  8. Dajjal is coming! We have the mix between kufr and Islam, and between justistice and tyranny. If you are trustful Muslims you is obligatory for you to condemn this Sultan king of hipocresy and his distortion of Sharia law application in the middle of a ultracapitalist kafir State.

  9. When Joe Biden calls you immoral you know you’re on the right track. LOL just LOL. Who by the way cares what Hollyweird degenerates have to say? These people are notorious drug abusers, alcoholics, fornicators and molesters…and they change religions as often as they change underwear. Nothing but clowns and jesters.

  10. Did Allah create the foreskin as well? I’m only asking because you mentioned that “Allah created human beings in a certain way”. I would be interested to see the wisdom behind its creation.

    • Alhamdulillah, he is for real.

      Why should a country not decide their own laws when the majority of its people agree.

  11. Islam is barbaric it stones gay people?

    Actually We explained in this video, that’s not exactly the case. It only stones, PROUD and open gay advocates. And not those who remain behind closed doors. See video here for a detailed explanation:

    Does Shariah Law simply Execute Gay People or punish them? Or allow them to live their Privat lives?

    Now that we have settled that misconception, I now advise you to watch this documentary found on the “insight Program, you may need to subscribe but I can assure you it’s simple, just requires your email and log in password. Then watch the video here: Click on video: 7.HiV Positive on link:

    Just to give you a ran down of the show, it talks about how same sex marriage has injured there lives, example high risk levels of AIDS virus, the pains and suffering and after effects of treatment drugs, depression, isolation, partner betrayal surrounding Aids testing, being child barren, and the list goes on. And how same Sex Marriages even after the introduction of contraception sexually transmitted diseases are, found most prevalent in same sex or bisexuals relationships, due to also fornication and Adultery (i.e ) open relationships.

    Islam, is a pure mechanism that, instructs a true moral code, protecting and minimizing risk levels, thus trying to eliminate, those trying to indulge in these things, in order to safe guard the community, so what is barbaric is not Islam, rather what is barbaric is the consequences, of what same sex marriages in particular homosexuality causes for our communities.

    In fact the West is even playing a vital role in trying to spread there immorality into the lands of Muslims see video here:
    https://youtu.be/1_nnKgntsAs
    The same West that accuses, Muslims not to bring Shariah law to the West, plays a vital role in trying to infiltrate their Culture on the Muslim World.

    Also I find it laughable when, the West tells Muslims if you don’t respect the Law of the Land, than find yourself another country. But than the same folks, don’t tell the LGBTI advocates in Brunei to respect the law of the land, and move out and go to the West.

  12. I thought this Daniel haqiqatju was an Iranian rationalist, but after reading his website I’ve come to the conclusion that he’s just another Saudi funded wannabe bedouin extremist. I would not want this mainstream wahabi to associate with my tribe. He lives in the west but he has the audacity to censor out a western woman for wearing a western dress. Reminds me of how Saudi airlines used to censor two and a half men. While I would like to see harsh punishment for rape, I don’t consider adultery should be given the same treatment as it is done by consent. Also gays should not be put to death, rather they should be educated about why this is not a preferable lifestyle. Maybe Mr long difficult name is too naive to realise that all this sharia law business of the sultan is just a political gimmick to stay in power. General Zia of Pakistan similarly used religion to stay in power for 11 years. But what does Mr Daniel care. I bet he’s itching to throw the first stone at the adulterous couple and separate the eyes from their sockets like his patron saint of peace Muhammad who was involved with 70 such executions. Regardless of the fact that he will live with a disgusting guilty conscience for the rest of his life following that event!

  13. Perhaps this is the last sin

    When you commit some sin do not despair of attaining closeness with your Rabb because, perhaps this is the last sin destined for you.

    When you commit some sin as a result of human nature, never allow this sin to bring about the slightest change in your determination to remain steadfast on the Deen and do not permit it to slacken your bond with Allah Ta’ala. Do not be deceived by the thought: ‘I am unable to remain steadfast on the Deen, hence my sinning.’ Do not think that firmness on the Deen is impossible on account of the sin committed. With this idea, do not become audacious in sin. This idea which you entertain is baseless because a sin committed as a result of the weakness in human nature is not in conflict with firmness on the Deen. Yes, persistence in sins, abstention from taubah and deliberate commission of sin are negatory of firmness (Istiqaamat).
    It is quite possible that the sin committed may be the last decreed for you and thereafter such mercy may be directed to you, that you will commit no further sin.

    Extract from: Ikmaalush Shiyam

    There should not be in your mind any sin so grave that it prevents you from holding a good opinion of hope with Allah Ta’ala and causes you to despair of His mercy and grace. He who has recognised his Rabb knows that infront of his Rabb’s grace and mercy, his sins are insignificant.

    One should not hold one’s sins in such a grave light that one loses hope in the grace and mercy of Allah Ta’ala. One should not think: “The gravity of my sin is so great that there is no forgiveness for it, and I have on account of this sin now reached a stage where I am unfit for His grace and mercy.” Such despair is the consequence of unawareness of the attributes of Allah Ta’ala.

    One who has recognised his Creator and is aware of His attributes, will be acquainted with His attributes of Forgiveness and Grace. He will thus understand that in the presence of these infinite attributes, his sins are insignificant. He will always have hopes of being forgiven.

    While this should be one’s attitude, one should not consider sin itself to be insignificant. If the gravity of sin is not in the heart, one will then not resort to taubah nor will there be regret and remorse.

    The summary of this discussion is: Neither consider the sin in such grave light that one despairs and loses hope in forgiveness, for this too is kufr, nor regard sin so lightly that one feels no remorse and is deprived of taubah. The hope of forgiveness should be tempered with regret for having sinned, and a firm resolution should be made to refrain from disobedience in future.

  14. Salaam Ustadh Daniel – I hope you see and respond to this question:

    Does partial implementation of the shariah even make sense?

    Under a capitalist economic system where poverty is rife, implementing the Islamic hudud system?

    Surely only under the Islamic economic system can the implementation of the hudud system make sense?

    Maybe you can share your views via a post or respond back InshaAllah.
