Punishing Oneself For A Grave Sin
If a Muslim commits a grave sin like robbery or adultery and is not caught by others, does it still apply to him that he must get himself punished by claiming to others he did something like this and then get the punishment such as getting his hands cut or get stoned? Just like there is a kaffara for a Muslim for breaking a fast without sound reason that he must keep 60 fasts does the same thing apply to aforementioned sins? Or he can simply do tauba and never return to those sins again while still giving himself some form of punishment such as feeding poor people or something else?
