58 . What should be the Judgement on Murder

 

Surah No. 2, Al Baqr, Ayat No. 178



يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الْقِصَاصُ فِي الْقَتْلَى الْحُرُّ بِالْحُرِّ وَالْعَبْدُ بِالْعَبْدِ

وَالأُنثَى بِالأُنثَى فَمَنْ عُفِيَ لَهُ مِنْ أَخِيهِ شَيْءٌ فَاتِّبَاعٌ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَأَدَاء إِلَيْهِ بِإِحْسَانٍ

o ذَلِكَ تَخْفِيفٌ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَرَحْمَةٌ فَمَنِ اعْتَدَى بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ فَلَهُ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ

Translation :



O you who believe! Law of equality is prescribed for you in the matter of the murdered; the freeman for the freeman, and the slave for the slave, and the female for the female. If the murderer is forgiven by the brother of the slain by accepting the blood shed money then the killer can pay this, which will reduce his burden. This is a mercy from your Lord. But even after this whosoever transgress, he will be in grave penalty.
