Execution of Hudud (ordained punishments

Q 31: Can a father carry out a Had (ordained punishment for violating Allah’s Law) on his son if the latter commits a sin that obligates it, since a father is the guardian of his sons, or is it only the ruler or his deputies who should carry out Hudud?

A: Carrying out Hudud is the responsibility of rulers and their deputies; neither a father nor anyone else can carry out a Had. (Part No. 22; Page No. 10) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
