This verse lays down the fines for adultery as follows:
God hath imposed a fine on every adulterer and adulteress, to be paid to the House of Justice: nine mithqals of gold, to be doubled if they should repeat the offence.
Critique: The financial strength of the House of Justice is thus cemented by the pious money of adultery. Ha Ha Ha…
The more the adultery, more the income for the House of Justice.
But will this not be injustice for the poor who cannot afford to pay the fees to the House of Justice to commit adultery???
