The Quranic style of dealing with crime and punishment is a revolutionary style. In order to control crime, the Quran has given the world a solid and comprehensive system in which it has not only created fear of God and fear of the Hereafter in the hearts of the people but has also given a practical system of punishment. There are three types of punishments in Islamic law. Boundaries, qisas and penalties. Everyone agrees on five boundaries. The limit of adultery, the limit of theft, the limit of qazf, the limit of robbery and the limit of alcohol. No limits can be waived once the limits have been established. Qisas can be forgiven by forgiving the heirs of the slain while the authorities have wide powers in penalties. Depending on the circumstances, these may be reduced. The main purpose of the Shariah punishments is to prevent the oppressor from oppressing and to correct him, but also to appease the oppressed and redress their grievances. By implementing these punishments, where crime can be controlled in the society, all kinds of social protection can be provided to the members of the society.
