"He is found guilty by an Islamic court, one of the punishments is stoning to death.But for the believer there is an important benefit."
Islamophobes think that Muslims stone people to death just for kicks. Perish the thought. (Also perish whoever the stones are being thrown at.) The stoning is a kind of therapy. Except with big rocks. And it's meant to help the one being stoned.
Adulterers and homosexuals can benefit from being stoned to death: Canadian Muslim Cleric
Brampton Sheikh Faisal Hamid Abdur-Razak justifies the Islamic law of stoning, explaining that a Muslim who is sentenced to death by stoning actually benefit from this capital punishment as his soul is being purified by this act.

“Even in Islamic Sharia [Law] the act of stoning is also done to reject certain evil actions, evil deeds. If someone commits certain crimes in Islam, and he is found guilty by an Islamic court, one of the punishments is stoning to death, signifying our rejection of evil actions as well.”
“But for the believer there is an important benefit."
What is this amazing benefit, aside from the accompanying weight loss and amateur plastic surgery?
“And finally the Prophet ordered that he will be stoned to death. And this was done, and the Prophet, peace be upon him, ordered that he will be prepared for [an Islamic] funeral and the Prophet himself prayed [in] his funeral. He told his companions: 'he is in heaven, he is purified, he is purified'. So, this act of stoning now [meaning as is learnt from this story] is also purification for the believer.
So apparently stoning gay men to death purifies them for those 72 virgins. Isn't Islam so incredibly considerate?
