Rape

From WikiAhmadiyya, the free encyclopedia on Islam and Ahmadiyyat

Rape and assault are forbidden in Islam and punishable for the perpetrator. Victims are not to be punished, as demonstrated by the example set by the prophet of Islam, Muhammadsa:

A woman was coerced (raped) during the time of Messenger of Allahsa. He waived the legal punishment for her and carried it out on the one who had attacked her.

- Ibn Majah

Punishments for rapists can include payment of large sums in financial compensation to the victim.
