In Sabah, Muslim men involved in adultery with married women may now face more severe legal consequences under the State Judiciary Enactment (MAN) of Sabah. The Minister of Science, Technology, and Innovation (KSTI) for Sabah, Datuk Mohd Arifin Mohd Arif, who concurrently holds the position of Sabah Islamic Religious Affairs Exco, recently shed light on the legal provisions available under the Sabah Sharia Court Enactment.

According to Datuk Mohd Arifin Mohd Arif, Sabah has specific legal frameworks, such as Section 86 of the Sabah Sharia Criminal Offenses Enactment 1995 and the MAN enactment. Notably, the MAN Sabah enactment outlines more substantial penalties, including the forfeiture of three livestock. Non-compliance with these regulations can result in an 18-month imprisonment or a fine of RM3,000.

The Minister shared these insights with reporters after visiting the Sharia Court in Kota Kinabalu, Likas, on Tuesday. During the visit, Dr. Mohammad Fahmi Ngah, Selangor's Islamic Religious Affairs and Cultural Innovation Exco, was also present to officiate the official government administration visit.


Datuk Mohd Arifin Mohd Arif emphasized that cases of marital interference involving third parties among Muslims may be subject to these stringent penalties based on Sabah's customs under the MAN enactment. This move signifies a stricter approach to uphold moral and ethical standards within the state.
