Please remember Muslims view the Quran as both perfect and for all time. There are caveats that sharia law applies around implementing these punishments but the general principle in Islam is that these are Islamic punishments.
" As for the thief, both male and female, cut off their hands. It is the reward of their own deeds, an exemplary punishment from Allah. Allah is Mighty, Wise."
"The only proper recompense for those who fight against God and His Messenger and try to spread evil in the land is to be killed, crucified, or either to have one of their hands and feet cut from the opposite side or to be sent into exile. These are to disgrace them in this life and they will suffer a great torment in the life hereafter."
