Hadith: shedding Muslim blood is unlawful


Muslim Blood is Dear to Allah (swt)

In the Sunan of Imam al-Tirmidhi (#1398) it has the following hadith from Abu Sa`id al-Khudri and Abu Hurayra (Allah be well pleased with them both):

“If the inhabitants of the heavens and the earth were to shed the blood of a believer, Allah will admit them all into the Hellfire…”

لو أن أهل السماء وأهل الأرض اشتركوا في دم مؤمن لأكبهم الله في النار
