Q: I want to know about the punishment given for committing zina. They say they should be given 100 lashes. My question is, what if the two that committed zina, never committed it with another person, and both are willing to get married, are they still given this punishment?
A: This law is applicable in an Islamic country.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
