ABSTRACT

Whether as a religious crime or as an offence in non-religious laws, the issue of adultery appears to be problematic. Islamic law as an example of religious law not only considers adultery as a sinful act but prescribes specific ways of proving it. In the same manner, some national penal laws criminalize adultery as an offence worthy of punishment. This work is a comparative investigation of the prescribed methodologies of proving adultery within a religious and non-religious legal contexts.
