  • Prophet ‎﴾ﷺ﴿ Forgiving Murder

    Posted by Ahmad Shoaib on August 18, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    In this video around 30 mins in Ghamidi sahab talks about how sahaba said to the prophet ‎﴾ﷺ﴿ that they murdered or buried their daughters alive etc. And the prophet ‎﴾ﷺ﴿ gives glad tidings that these deeds are erased after accepting Islam.

    Should they not have been given the punishments for these crimes?

    When after repenting and accepting Islam, even shirk can be forgiven, then it obviously makes sense to forgive lesser crimes than shirk if one repented sincerely. Many verses in the Qur’an, Allah says he forgives all sins except shirk.

    If someone commits murder and accepts Islam maybe God will forgive him but what should happen in a court of law?

      I think Prophet might have forgiven the murderer ONLY if Allah wanted to continue his test in this world. Prophet didn’t do things on his own, but based on guidance from Allah.

      I am sure this must be one of those cases where Allah may have asked the Prophet to forgive the murderer if he repented and accepted Islam .

    Today a person will be punished if his crime is proven in the court of law.

      Why was that person forgiven though- a crime warranting capital punishment was committed . This seems to set a precedent

      Most likely because he repented and accepted Islam. His earlier crime was forgiven because of it.

    I see it this way .

    Allah is the giver and taker of life, and Allah decides when the test of a person in this world is over. A murderer would, in normal circumstances be given death punishment. However, when Allah decides that such a murderer has repented for his crime and he has now come to accept Islam (after completion of proof), the Prophet may have been given the instruction from Allah that this person, who has now become a Muslim, and also repented for his crime earlier, deserves forgiveness. Thus, Prophet might have forgiven such a person.

    Allah forgives whoever he wills, except shirk.

      Yes, but they repented and accepted Islam, so forgiven.
