Stoning was a threat made by the Kuffar against the Prophets of Allah and other believers.  Allah tells us in the following verses:

قالوا يا شُعَيبُ ما نَفقَهُ كَثيرًا مِمّا تَقولُ وَإِنّا لَنَراكَ فينا ضَعيفًا ۖ وَلَولا رَهطُكَ لَرَجَمناكَ ۖ وَما أَنتَ عَلَينا بِعَزيزٍ

qālū yā-shuʿaybu mā nafqahu kathīran mimmā taqūlu wa-ʾinnā la-narāka fīnā ḍaʿīfan wa-law-lā rahṭuka la-rajamnāka wa-mā ʾanta ʿalaynā bi-ʿazīz

They said, “Oh Shoaib! We do not understand much of what you say. However, we do find you weak among us. Had it not been for the family ties, we would have stoned you to death! You are not precious among us!” (Surah Hud 11:91)

إِنَّهُم إِن يَظهَروا عَلَيكُم يَرجُموكُم أَو يُعيدوكُم في مِلَّتِهِم وَلَن تُفلِحوا إِذًا أَبَدًا

ʾinnahum ʾin yaẓharū ʿalaykum yarjumūkum ʾaw yuʿīdūkum fī millatihim wa-lan tufliḥū ʾidhan ʾabada

“If they overcome you they may stone you to death, or compel you to rejoin their way. In the later case, you will never ever be successful.” (Surah al-Kahf 18:20)

قالَ أَراغِبٌ أَنتَ عَن آلِهَتي يا إِبراهيمُ ۖ لَئِن لَم تَنتَهِ لَأَرجُمَنَّكَ ۖ وَاهجُرني مَلِيًّا

qāla ʾa-rāghibun ʾanta ʿan ʾālihatī yā-ʾibrāhīmu la-ʾin lam tantahi la-ʾarjumannaka wa-hjurnī maliyya

He said, “Have you turned away from your gods, oh Ibraheem? Desist, for if you do not, I shall stone you to death. Out of my sight, now!” (Surah Mariam 19:46)

قالوا لَئِن لَم تَنتَهِ يا نوحُ لَتَكونَنَّ مِنَ المَرجومينَ
 qālū la-ʾin lam tantahi yā-nūḥu la-takūnanna mina l-marjūmīn
They said, ‘Ya Noah, if you do not relinquish, you will certainly be stoned.’ (Surah ash-Shu’ara 26:116)
قالوا إِنّا تَطَيَّرنا بِكُم ۖ لَئِن لَم تَنتَهوا لَنَرجُمَنَّكُم وَلَيَمَسَّنَّكُم مِنّا عَذابٌ أَليمٌ
 qālū ʾinnā taṭayyarnā bikum la-ʾin lam tantahū la-narjumannakum wa-la-yamassannakum minnā ʿadhābun ʾalīm

They said, ‘Indeed we take you for a bad omen. If you do not relinquish we will stone you, and surely a painful punishment will visit you from us.’ (Surah YaSeen 36:18)
