Retaliation

Retaliation-القِصاص

1. The sword rents asunder and the religion joins together; for religion commands good and the sword forbids evil. Allah, the Exalted, says: Indeed in retaliation there is life for you.

1ـ اَلسَيْفُ فاتِقٌ، والدّينُ راتِقٌ، فَالدّينُ يَأمُرُ بِالمَعْرُوفِ، والسَّيْفُ يَنْهى عَنِ المُنْكَرِ، قالَ اللّهُ تَعالى: ﴿ولَكُمْ فِي القِصاصِ حَيوةٌ﴾.

2. And retaliation [has been ordained] as a prevention of bloodshed and the execution of punishments [has been ordained] for realising the importance of prohibitions.

2 ـ والقِصاصَ حَقْناً لِلدِّماءِ، وإقامَةَ الحُدُودِ إعْظاماً لِلْمَحارِمِ.
