This is what really confuses me. Personally, I don't support death penalty and wouldn't wish it on anyone, even criminals like Bush. Yet in Islam it is prescribed for certain crimes.

Read the Hadith, during the time of our Prophet (Peace be upon him), death sentences were carried out, often the condemned was stoned to death or beheaded. These methods were also there under other Prophets such as Moses and Abraham(Peace be upon Them) as narrated in Old Testament. As a Muslim, I get confused because my religious beliefs clashes with my personal opinions and I don't know which way to go.
