Punishment are of two types. The first is to neglect or omit duties when one is able to fulfil them, such as the repayment of debts, delivering things held in trust to their rightful owners, safeguarding the property of orphans and delivering these when the orphans come of age.

It is absolutely forbidden to accuse anyone of immoral and lewd action. Allah says: ‘Those who accuse chaste women who may have been unthinkingly careless but remained true believers, shall be rejected by Allah in this world as well as in the life to come. They shall endure awesome suffering’ (24: 23).
