Supporting quotations

Stated Allaah the Mighty and Majestic concerning one of the children of Aadam, {So the self of the other encouraged him, and made fair-seeming to him the murder of his brother. So he murdered him and became one of the losers.}, [Sooratul-Maa'idah, Aayah 30]

And Allaah the Mighty and Majestic said, {Due to that, We ordained for the Children of Israa'eel, that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation for murder, or to spread corruption in the land; it would be as if he had killed all of mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved all of mankind.}, [Sooratul-Maa'idah, Aayah 32]

The Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said, «No one kills another person out of transgression, except that the burden for that falls upon the first son of Aadam, because he was the first one to begin the practice of killing.»[10] And Allaah the Mighty and Majestic said about His Messenger, Moosaa ('alayhis-salaam) that he said to Khidr, {Have you killed an innocent person who had killed none? Indeed, you have committed an evil thing!}, [Sooratul-Kahf, Aayah 74]

And Allaah said about him, {The man from his party asked him for help against his foe, so Moosaa struck him with his fist and killed him. He said, "Indeed, this is the work of Satan, since he is a plain misleading enemy." He said, "My Lord! Indeed, I have wronged myself, so forgive me." So He forgave him. Indeed, He is the Oft-Forgiving, the Most Merciful.}, [Sooratul-Qasas, Aayahs 15-16]

And there occurs in Saheeh Muslim (no.2905), from Saalim Ibn 'Abdullaah Ibn 'Umar, who said, 'O people of al-'Iraaq! How do you ask about the minor sin whilst you are committing the major sin?! I heard my father, 'Abdullaah Ibn 'Umar (radiyallaahu 'anhumaa) saying, 'I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) say, «Indeed, the fitnah (trial, tribulation) will come from here.» And he pointed with his hand towards the east. «And you will be striking the necks of each other.»

And Moosaa killed a person from amongst people of Fir'awn by mistake, so Allaah the Mighty and Majestic said to him, {Then you killed a man, but We saved you from great distress and tried you with a heavy trial.}, [Soorah Taa Haa, Aayah 40]."'

And the statement of Saalim Ibn 'Abdullaah, 'How do you ask about the minor sin whilst you are committing the major sin,' points out that which occurred from his father, as is related in Saheehul-Bukhaaree (no.5994), that a man from amongst the people of al-'Iraaq asked him about killing mosquitoes. So he said, 'Look at this one! He asks me about killing mosquitoes whilst they have killed the son of the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam). And I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) saying, «They are my two sweet basils in this world.» He was referring to al-Hasan and al-Husayn (radiyallaahu 'anhumaa).

And Allaah the Exalted said, {And We took your covenant, "Do not shed the blood of your people, nor turn your own people out from their dwellings." Then, you ratified this, and you shall bear witness to it.}, [Sooratul-Baqarah, Aayah 84]

And Allaah the Exalted said, {And We ordained therein for them, "Life for life, eye for eye, nose for nose, ear for ear, tooth for tooth, and wounds equal for equal." However, if anyone remits the retaliation by way of charity, it shall be for him an expiation.}, [Sooratul-Maa'idah, Aayah 45
