Burning people as a punishment
Q: According to ISIS, burning someone to punish him is permissible. They quote the scholar Ibn Hajar that it is permissible to burn. The Prophet branded two men from Uraynah with a branding iron. Is this authentic?
A: There is a hadeeth in Abu Dawood where we are commanded not to burn anybody.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
