    • Islam allows capital punishment for three crimes: murder, adultery and apostasy (a Muslim denying Islam and working against Islam)
      • These crimes must be proven according to Shari'ah law
    • It is a punishment set down by Allah in the Qur'an. The Qur'an is the word of Allah
    • Muhammad made several statements agreeing with capital punishment for murder, adultery and apostacy
    • Muhammad sentenced people to death for murder when he was the ruler of Madianh
    • The Shari'ah says that capital punishment is the punishment for murder, adultery and apostasy- Muslims ought to follow the holy law of Islam
    • Agree with all non-religious arguments for capital punishment
