User: In Islamic society, ______ sets rewards for good behavior and punishment for crimes.

Weegy: Punishment for Crimes Islam?s philosophy with respect to the spread of misconduct is prevention. Part of the prevention mechanism is severe penalty. The severity of punishment of a Muslim serves as a giant deterrent to committing a crime. [ Because of the severity of punishment, the majority of people would not commit the violation or even begin to think of carrying it out. The likeness of this policy is much like the common practice of law-suits in the United States that are costing violators millions of dollars in penalty, which has effectively kept many violators away from committing a violation. An example of this is the multi-billion law suit case against the Tobacco companies, Philip Morris, R.J. Reynolds, Brown and Williamson, Lorillard, the Leggett Group and Brooke Limited charged with reckless disregard to misrepresenting information relating to health cost them over 200 billion dollars to a class case and over 246 billion dollars to 46 states? case. Similar to the common expensive lawsuits are the stiffer penalties in traffic laws that are implemented to reduce accidents and death. In the same way, today?s courts of law are stiffening the penalties and sentences to limit violations. For example, a traffic citation point in 2003 requires eighteen months to be removed off the driver?s record versus six months requirement in the middle of 1980s. Similarly, the level of intoxicant found in drunk-driving citations has risen from 0.12% in the mid seventies to 0.1% to 0.08%in the 2000?s. This restriction has saved thousands upon thousands of lives from death in drunk driving accidents. Let us illustrate the psychological effect of the severity of punishment on people?s behavior. According to Islamic law, the maximum penalty for professional theft is cutting hands. It should be understood that this policy does not mean that for every theft there is a hand to be cut. The judge exercises other forms of penalties such as imprisonments or fines. With the mere existence of the hand-cutting rule, however, theft in Muslim societies never grew to the level of proficiency and organized crime. ]
