Todays quran quote:


“..As for the thief, both male and female, cut off their hands. It is the reward of their own deeds, an exemplary punishment from Allah. Allah is Mighty, Wise...”


The implementation of the ‘hadd’ punishments as they are called, require specific preconditions and a proper trial.  They are often meant to act as a deterrent more than anything else, and they are not the only way to deal with such crimes according to Islam.

Besides, I don’t think the existing prison industrial complex is even close to being a better alternative.  Read about it.

So chopping off hands is ok in Jacks mind.

Thanks for clarifying.
