Abstract: Abstract This study analysed to what extent the existing laws in Malaysia regulating the three major social ills, namely illegal drugs, alcoholic drinks and adultery are in harmony with or in violation of the teachings of the Holy Qur’an and Bible respectively. To achieve this purpose, a comparative analysis between the Quranic and Biblical scriptures was carried out. The findings showed that both religious texts view that the three major social ills are forbidden acts. However, this study found that the current laws used to deal with the three major social ills are not in full harmony with the teachings of the Holy Qur’an and the Bible. This study found that the punishment for alcoholic drinks and adultery under the Malaysian Syariah criminal offences enactments/acts are not in harmony with the prescribed punishment as mentioned in the texts of the Holy Qur’an. In addition, the non-existence of capital punishment (namely death penalty) for the commission of adultery by Christians is not in harmony with biblical texts. Keywords: Islam, Christianity, laws, social ills, Malaysia. Abstrak Kajian ini menganalisa sama ada undang-undang sedia ada di Malaysia berkaitan dengan gejala sosial utama iaitu najis dadah, minuman beralkohol dan zina adalah sejajar atau bertentangan dengan ajaran Islam dan ajaran Kristian. Bagi mencapai tujuan kajian, suatu analisa perbandingan telah dilakukan antara teks al-Qur’an dan Bible. Hasil kajian menunjukkan kedua-dua teks keagamaan berpandangan bahawa ketiga-tiga gejala sosial tersebut adalah haram. Walau bagaimanapun, kajian menunjukkan undang-undang sedia ada yang digunakan untuk mengawal ketiga-tiga gejala sosial tersebut adalah tidak selari dengan teks Al-Qur’an dan Bible. Kajian juga menunjukkan bahawa hukuman bagi minuman beralkohol dan zina di bawah enakmen/akta kesalahan jenayah Syariah Malaysia adalah tidak selari dengan hukuman yang telah dinyatakan di dalam teks al-Qur’an. Ketiadaan hukuman mati bagi kesalahan zina yang dilakukan oleh penganut Kristian juga didapati tidak selari dengan teks Bible.
