AK-83's comments imply that he agrees with the stoning of the women for adultery. Can he give any example of a man being stoned for adultery and the woman involved being let off with lashes? Can he also explain the following Hadith which implies adultery?

Volume 9, Book 89, Number 321:

(60.12) And the hand of Allah's Apostle did not touch any woman's hand except the hand of that woman his right hand possessed. (I.e. his captives or his lady slaves).
