Hadith: bloodshed and forgiveness

Hadith: 1

The Sahih of Imam al-Bukhari (#6862) has the following hadith from `Abd Allah ibn `Umar (Allah be pleased with them both):

لا يزال المؤمن في فسحة من دينه ، ما لم يصب دما حراما

“There will remain forgiveness for the believer in his religion except if blood is shed unlawfully” (ma lam yusab daman haraman). 

Notes:

  1. Severity of spilling Muslim blood, i.e. it is sacred, protected.
  2. Deliberate killing of a believer could be an act that can compromises the integrity of one’s belief (iman).

Allah knows best.
