One of Indonesia's biggest problems is the corruption cases that frequently occurred. The Corruption Eradication Commision (KPK) has carried out imprisonment, monetary sanctions, and property confiscation. However, the corruption cases are increasing. The type of this study is library research. This study focused to analyse Wahbah Zuhaylī's thoughts in his book, Tafsīr al-Munīr fī al-Aqīdah wa al-Syarī’ah wa al-Manhāj, especially regarding the death penalty for corruptors and its relevance to the cases in Indonesia. Here Authors analyse sariqa and rishwah terms. The methods used are thematic and content analysis. The results of this study indicate that sariqa and rishwah are parts of corruption. according to Zuhaylī, it is a very dangerous offence and has more dangerous repercussions than murder. To prevent corruption, Zuhaylī generally does not recommend any punishment, including the death penalty, except hand cut - off (qat'u al-yad). It means that, as a preventive measure and a warning to the public, Zuhaylī prioritizes hand cut - off over the death penalty.
