Q: What is the punishment in Islam for a married man who has committed zina with a prepubescent girl younger than nine years of age?
A: Where there is a shar`ee court they will decide using their discretion as to what type of punishment should be meted out. They have the right to employ their discretion in choosing the type of punishment.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
