Question :
Allah, the Exalted, says:
The (female) fornicator, and the fornicator, flog each one of them a hundred lashes.
"The (female) fornicator, and the fornicator, flog each one of them a hundred lashes."
An-Nur 24: 2.

And those who calumniate chaste women and do not being four witnesses flog with eighty lashes.
"And those who calumniate chaste women and do not being four witnesses flog with eighty lashes."

An-Nur 24: 4.

"And the thief - male and female - amputate their hands in retribution of their offense as an exemplary punishment from Allah, and Allah is Mighty, Wise."
What will be the verdict on those commit such major sins when there is no one to subject them to castigation, and they die before repenting?

Answer :
Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jama'ah believe that any Muslim who fornication, libeling chaste women, or theft, would be subject to the Will of Allah, Glorious is He. If He wishes He forgives him, or if He wishes He punishes him on account of major sin which he committed and died before repenting to Allah. But he will finally be admitted into Paradise, account to the Words of Allah:
Verify, Allah dose not forgives whatever is short of that to whoever He wills.
"Verify, Allah dose not forgives whatever is short of that to whoever He wills."
Al-Ma'idah 5: 38.
And according to the authentic Hadiths that emphasize taking out of Fire the disobedient people who believe in the Oneness of Allah. And, according to the following authentic Hadith which with was narrated by ' Ubadah bin As-Samit who said: "We were with the Prophet (Piece Be Upon Him)when he said to us:
Do you want to give me your pledge that you shall not ascribe a partner to Allah, nor fornicate , nor steal.
"Do you want to give me your pledge that you shall not ascribe a partner to Allah, nor fornicate , nor steal."
An-Nisa 4 :48.
Then he recited the above Verse. Then he Said:
He who fulfills his pledge, his reward will be with Allah. But he who commits any of those sins, and gets punished (in this world) then his punishment stands as an expiation. While he who commits any of these sins, and Allah covers up for him, then it will be up to Allah, if He wishes, he punishes him, and if He wishes, he forgives him.
"He who fulfills his pledge, his reward will be with Allah. But he who commits any of those sins, and gets punished (in this world) then his punishment stands as an expiation. While he who commits any of these sins, and Allah covers up for him, then it will be up to Allah, if He wishes, he punishes him, and if He wishes, he forgives him."
