Why is a Muslim told by Muhammed that it is wrong to kill a fellow Muslim but he is not told that it is wrong to kill a non-Muslim. In the bible God tells us in the ten commandments that it is wrong for any man to kill any other man. In the bible the value of all men’s lives is equal and sacred before God, in the Koran not so

  1. [4.92] And it does not behoove a believer to kill a believer except by mistake, and whoever kills a believer by mistake, he should free a believing slave, and blood-money should be paid to his people unless they remit it as alms; but if he be from a tribe hostile to you and he is a believer, the freeing of a believing slave (suffices), and if he is from a tribe between whom and you there is a convenant, the blood-money should be paid to his people along with the freeing of a believing slave; but he who cannot find (a slave) should fast for two months successively: a penance from Allah, and Allah is Knowing, Wise.
  2. [4.93] And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his punishment is hell; he shall abide in it, and Allah will send His wrath on him and curse him and prepare for him a painful chastisement.

  1. θ says:

    General prohibition of killing the humanbeings.
    Q.17, v.33 And do not kill the life which Allah has forbidden, except by the truth. And whoever is killed unjustly We make his leader a power, so let him not exceed in a killing retaliation. Indeed, he has been supported.
    Q.25, v.68 And those who do not invoke with Allah another deity or kill the life which Allah has forbidden, except by the truth, and do not commit fornication. And whoever does that will meet a punitive sin.
    Q.28, v.15 And he entered the city at moment of inattention from its folks and found therein two men fighting: one from his faction and one from among his enemy. And the one from his faction called for help to him against the one from his enemy, so Moses struck him and finished him. He said, This is from the work of Satan. Indeed, he is an enemy with real astray.

    The use of Arabic word “Yaqtatilan” (fighting, wrestling, harming) in Q.28, v.15 is one of the Islamic proofs that shows the word “Qital” doesn’t always mean killing.

    Specific prohibition of killing the covenanted people.
    Q.9, v.4. Excepted are those with whom you make a treaty among the polytheists, then they do not give you loss in everything, and not trample you over anything; so fulfill for them their treaty till their term. Indeed, Allah loves the unblemished ones.
    Q.9, v.7. Hence, on whatever they are upright toward you, be upright also toward them. Indeed, Allah loves the unblemished ones.
    Q.4, v.90. Except for those who take refuge with a group between yourselves and whom is a treaty, or those who come to ye their hearts strained at fighting ye or fighting their own people. And if Allah had willed, He could have given them a power over ye, and they would have fought ye. So if they keep detente on ye, and do not fight ye, and offer you the peace, then Allah has not made for ye a way against them.

    Bukhari, Hadith 2930.
    The Prophet said, “Whoever killed a Mu’ahid (a person who is granted the pledge of protection by the Muslims) shall not smell the fragrance of Paradise though its fragrance can be smelt at a distance of forty years (of traveling).”
    Abu Dawud, Hadith 3052.
    Allah’s Messenger said: “If anyone wrongs a man with whom a covenant has been made, or curtails any right of his, or imposes on him more than he can bear, or takes anything from him without his ready agreement, I shall be his adversary on the day of resurrection.”

  2. madmanna says:

    “General prohibition of killing the humanbeings.
    Q.17, v.33 And do not kill the life which Allah has forbidden”

    That’s the point. The only life that is forbidden in the Koran is the life of the believer.

    If the Non Moslems themselves think their life is worthless and cheaper, just as Jesus belittles them as expendable dirty rags, who are we Moslems to persuade them otherwise?
