Hadith on Adultery: Unlawful sex with a slave is punished as adultery

Habib ibn Salim reported: A man had sexual intercourse with the servant girl of his wife, so the matter was referred to Al-Nu’man ibn Bashir. Al-Nu’man said, “I will judge them with the judgment of the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him. If she had given him permission, I will lash him one hundred times. If she did not give him permission, I will stone him.”

Al-Tirmidhi said, “It was narrated from more than one of the companions of the Prophet, among them Ali and Ibn Umar, that he must be stoned. Ibn Mas’ud said he is not stoned, but rather is given a discretionary punishment. Ahmad and Ishaq adopted the opinion as narrated by Al-Nu’man ibn Bashir from the Prophet.”

عَنْ حَبِيبِ بْنِ سَالِمٍ قَالَ رُفِعَ إِلَى النُّعْمَانِ بْنِ بَشِيرٍ رَجُلٌ وَقَعَ عَلَى جَارِيَةِ امْرَأَتِهِ فَقَالَ لَأَقْضِيَنَّ فِيهَا بِقَضَاءِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لَئِنْ كَانَتْ أَحَلَّتْهَا لَهُ لَأَجْلِدَنَّهُ مِائَةً وَإِنْ لَمْ تَكُنْ أَحَلَّتْهَا لَهُ رَجَمْتُهُ

قال الترمذي فَرُوِيَ عَنْ غَيْرِ وَاحِدٍ مِنْ أَصْحَابِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مِنْهُمْ عَلِيٌّ وَابْنُ عُمَرَ أَنَّ عَلَيْهِ الرَّجْمَ وَقَالَ ابْنُ مَسْعُودٍ لَيْسَ عَلَيْهِ حَدٌّ وَلَكِنْ يُعَزَّرُ وَذَهَبَ أَحْمَدُ وَإِسْحَقُ إِلَى مَا رَوَى النُّعْمَانُ بْنُ بَشِيرٍ عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ
