Hadith for the day

Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas:

If a man who is not married is seized committing sodomy, he will be stoned to death. Abu Dawud said: The tradition of ‘Asim proved the tradition of ‘Amir b. Abi ‘Amr as weak.

Sunan Abu Dawud 38:4448

It is OK for married men, then?

But just two hadiths later …

‘Asim reported from Abu Razin on the authority of Ibn ‘Abbas saying:

There is no prescribed punishment for one who has sexual intercourse with an animal. Abu Dawud said: ‘Ata is also so. Al Hakam said: I think he should be flogged, but the number should not reach the one of the prescribed punishment. Al-Hasan said: He is like a fornicator. Abu Dawud said: The tradition of ‘Asim proves the tradition of ‘Amr b. Abi ‘Amr as weak.

Sunan Abu Dawud 38:4450
