[004:027] All‚h wishes to accept your repentance, but those who follow their lusts, wish that you (believers) should deviate tremendously away (from the Right Path).


[004:028] All‚h wishes to lighten (the burden) for you; and man was created weak (cannot be patient to leave sexual intercourse with women).


[004:029] O you who believe! Eat not up your property among yourselves unjustly except it be a trade amongst you, by mutual consent. And do not kill yourselves (nor kill one another). Surely, All‚h is Most Merciful to you.


[004:030] And whoever commits that through aggression and injustice, We shall cast him into the Fire, and that is easy for All‚h.


[004:031] If you avoid the great sins which you are forbidden to do, We shall expiate from you your (small) sins, and admit you to a Noble Entrance (i.e. Paradise).


[004:032] And wish not for the things in which All‚h has made some of you to excel others. For men there is reward for what they have earned, (and likewise) for women there is reward for what they have earned, and ask All‚h of His bounty. Surely, All‚h is Ever All-Knower of everything.


[004:033] And to everyone, We have appointed heirs of that (property) left by parents and relatives. To those also with whom you have made a pledge (brotherhood), give them their due portion (by Wasiyyah ó will). Truly, All‚h is Ever a Witness over all things.




(V.4:29) What is said about committing suicide.

Narrated Th‚bit bin Ad-Dahh‚k [radhi-yAll‚hu 'anhu]: The Prophet [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam] said, "Whoever intentionally swears falsely by a religion other than Isl‚m, then he is what he had said (e.g. if he says, 'If such thing is not true then I am a Jew,' he is really a Jew if he is a liar). And whoever commits suicide with a piece of iron, will be punished with the same piece of iron in the Hell-fire." [Sahih Al-Bukh‚ri, 2/1363 (O.P.445)]

Narrated Jundub: The Prophet [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam] said, "A man was inflicted with wounds and he committed suicide, and so All‚h said: 'My slave has caused death on himself hurriedly, so I forbid Paradise for him.' " [Sahih Al-Bukh‚ri, 2/1364 (O.P.445)]

Narrated Abu Hurairah [radhi-yAll‚hu 'anhu]: The Prophet [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam] said, "He who commits suicide by throttling, shall keep on throttling himself in the Hell-fire; and he who commits suicide by stabbing himself, shall keep on stabbing himself in the Hell-fire (forever)." [Sahih Al-Bukh‚ri, 2/1365 (O.P.446)].


(V.4:31) Narrated Abu Hurairah [radhi-yAll‚hu 'anhu]: The Prophet [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam] said: "Avoid the seven great destructive sins." They (the people) asked, "O All‚h's Messenger! What are they?" He said, "(1) To join partners in worship with All‚h, (2) to practise sorcery; (3) to kill a person which All‚h has forbidden except for a just cause (according to Isl‚mic law); (4) to eat up Rib‚*; (5) to eat up the property of an orphan; (6) to show one's back to the enemy and fleeing from the battlefield at the time of fighting, and (7) to accuse chaste women who never even think of anything touching their chastity and are good believers." [Sahih Al-Bukh‚ri, 8/6857 (O.P.840)].

* Rib‚: See (V.2:275) and its footnote.


(V.4:33) See for details [Sahih Al-Bukhari, 3/2292 (O.P.489)].
