Ruling on someone who commits Zina dying before receiving the Hadd

Q 2: What is the ruling on a man who commits Zina (sexual intercourse outside marriage) then dies without receiving Hadd (ordained punishment for violating Allah’s Law)? Some scholars said that the Hadd will be applied to him on the Day of Resurrection. Some others said that the person who applies the Hadd of Zina has to be someone who did not commit the same sin before. What is your opinion on the foregoing?

A: If a person commits Zina and Hadd is applied to them, this will be considered a Kaffarah (expiation) for them. On the other hand, if a person commits Zina but dies before Hadd is applied to them; their affair will be with Allah (whether to forgive or punish them). Besides, it is only the ruler who has authority to apply Hadd.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
