al-Qatl - Murder

Contents > Relationships with others > Murder

You must know not to kill/murder. Allah says,


“Nor take life - which Allah has made sacred - except for just cause. And if anyone is slain wrongfully, we have given his heir authority (to demand Qisaas or to forgive): but let him not exceed bounds in the matter of taking life; for he is helped (by the Law).” al-Qur’an, Surah al-Israa’, 17: 33

And Allah says,


“If a man kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell, to abide therein (For ever): And the wrath and the curse of Allah are upon him, and a dreadful penalty is prepared for him.” al-Qur’an, Surah al-Nisaa’, 4: 93
