Hadith: Supporting Killing of Muslims


Support in Killing a Muslim

In the Sunan al-Kubra of Imam al-Bayhaqi, 8/22 it has the following hadith from al-Zuhri (Allah have mercy on him) that:

“Whoever helps in killing a Muslim by even half a word will be brought on the Day of Judgment with the words ‘hopeless from the mercy of Allah’ written between his eyes.”

من أعان على قتل مؤمن بشطر كلمة جاء يوم القيامة مكتوب بين عينيه آيس من رحمة


  1. killing a Muslim is unlawful.
  2. Assisting in word or deed to kill a Muslim is unlawful.
  3. Killing a Muslim can negate Allah’s mercy on the Day of Judgment.


Allah knows best.
