#2. Murder (Killing a Person Deliberately)

This is also one of the greatest of major sins which is not limited to killing a person but also include abortion without legitimate reason, and within very precise limits.

Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell to abide therein; and the Wrath and the Curse of Allah are upon him, and a great punishment is prepared for him” Q4:93)

“Kill not your children for fear of want. We shall provide sustenance for them as well as for you. Verily the killing of them is a great sin.” (Q17:31)

“Those who invoke not, with Allah, any other god, nor slay such life as Allah has made sacred, except for just cause, nor commit fornication, and any that does this (not only) meets punishment.” (Q25:68)

And it was narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

“A man will continue to be sound in his religion so long as he does not shed blood which it is forbidden to shed.”

… Abide by the truth even if your mind deserts you.
