36 Or Adultery #19






The Arabic word zina, here translated as adultery, signifies both

fornication and adultery. It applies not only to sexual relations between

a married person and someone who is not his or her spouse, but also to

fornication (see note 77); penalties for other kinds of sexual offence are

left to the Universal House of Justice to determine.
