Execution has been always a part of Islamic hudud and punishments which are completely against humanity and immoral.

Executions in islam

Muhammad himself has ordered different punishments for various reasons such as homosexuality, apostates and blasphemers and adulterers.
What Saudi Arabia has done and many other Islamic governments have been doing for centuries or decades are all parts of Islam. Saudi Arabia claims that they have ordered execution of terrorists from Al-Qaeda, ISIS and….. but the action they have ordered to be done on them is just as Islamic as those terrorists. And:”Saudi Arabia is a Sharia state, so many of these men were likely executed for Sharia offenses, which include apostasy: a hadith depicts Muhammad saying: “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him” (Bukhari 9.84.57). The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law according to all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence. It would certainly qualify as a “deviant belief.”…..”

Examples of punishment

Here are some examples: “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or *crucifixion*, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;
Quran 5:33
Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), *smite at their necks*; At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens. Thus (are ye commanded): but if it had been Allah’s Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But those who are slain in the Way of Allah,- He will never let their deeds be lost.  Quran 47:4

Allah’s apostle

Stoning:”Al-Bara’ b. ‘Azib reported: There happened to pass by Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) a Jew blackened and lashed. Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) called them (the Jews) and said: Is this the punishment that you find in your Book (Torah) as a prescribed punishment for adultery? They said: Yes. He (the Holy Prophet) called one of the scholars amongst them and said: I ask you in the name of Allah Who sent down the Torah on Moses, if that is the prescribed punishment for adultery that you find in your Book. He said: No. Had you not asked me in the name of Allah, I would not have given you this information. We find stoning to death (as punishment prescribed in the Torah).
But this (crime) became quite common amongst our aristocratic class. So when we caught hold of any rich person (indulging in this offense) we spared him, but when we caught hold of a helpless person we imposed the prescribed punishment upon him. We then said: Let us agree (on a punishment) which we can inflict both upon the rich and the poor. So We decided to blacken the face with coal and flog as a substitute punishment for stoning. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: O Allah, *I am the first to revive Thy command when they had made it dead. He then commanded and he (the offender) was stoned to death*…
Sahih Muslim 17:4214″
