If muḥṣan [commonly translated as "adulterer" but technically meaning someone who has had legal intercourse, but who may or may not currently be married] and free [not a slave], one must be stoned to death, while a free bachelor must be whipped 100 lashes and banished for a year."

In the 1980s, Saudi King Khaled issued numerous royal decrees designed to guarantee support among religious conservatives in the aftermath of an uprising of religious fundamentalists in 1979, known as the Grand Mosque seizure.

Much of the subsequent written law has focused on the areas of economics and foreign relations.
