In an attempt to show they are still enforcing Sharia Law in their self-proclaimed Islamic State, ISIS released a montage video of executions throughout the Middle East.

A portion of the video, titled “Enduring Glory,” features multiple graphic public Crucifixions.

ISIS justifies its executions by sourcing the Quran which states Sharia Law is the law of Islam and cannot be altered.

The Quran describes crucifixion as a punishment “for those for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger.”  This crime, under Sharia Law, is known as “Hudud” -crimes against God with fixed punishment.

The punishment for “Hudud” crimes are specifically listed within the Quran and the Islamic State believes it is their responsibility to impose these punishments on offenders.

For example, the Quran states that the punishment for theft is the amputation of the thief’s hands.

“[As for] the thief, the male and the female, amputate their hands in recompense for what they committed as a deterrent [punishment] from Allah . And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.”

 

On the other hand, the Quran says “whoever repents after his wrongdoing and reforms, indeed, Allah will turn to him in forgiveness. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.”
