Rare Justice: Judgements, Decisions and Answers to Difficult Questions part 14

Penalty to the Inheritors of a Murdered Man whose one Hand was already Cut

It has been reported by Kulaini who reported it from Imam Jafar Sadiq (A) and the latter reported it from ‘Kitab-i-Ali’ that a man murdered another man intentionally, but one hand of the murdered man was already cut either for penalty or by some one out of enmity.

Hazrat Ali (A) said that if the hand of the murdered man was cut for penalty he still stood responsible for it, but if it was cut down by some one out of enmity and as a mark of cruelty the inheritors of the murdered man should return the amount of penalty, if already received by him as penalty, to the inheritors of the murderer before murdering him. In the former case they may not pay any thing and murder the murderer for murdering their legator or alternatively they can receive full penalty in cash from the murderer for the murder.

A Case of Penalty with Regard to Drunkards

Four persons drank wine, quarrelled among themselves and stabbed one another with the result that two of them died on the spot and the two other who survived were wounded in the brawl. Hazrat Ali (A) ordered for eighty whips each to the wounded and also ordered them to pay the penalty to the inheritors of the deceased after deducting the penalty for their wounds. He also added that in case any of the wounded persons or both of them died then inheritors had nothing to pay to the inheritors of the murdered.

According to another report he said that the penalty was due from all the four tribes of the persons concerned. The amount of penalty which had to be paid to the wounded would however, be deducted from the total amount of penalty to be paid to the inheritors of the murdered because it was quite possible that they might have murdered each other, (Manaqib Sher Aashob: vol. 2,p.200 through Abu Turab: p. 227).

The Compensation with Regard to a Drowned Man

Six persons were once swimming in the Euphrates. One of them was drowned. Two of them came to Amir-ul-Momineen Hazrat Ali (A), and complained to him that the three other had drowned him, while they complained the two who had complained to him previously had themselves drowned him and were simply accusing them to save their own skin. Hazrat Ali (A) ordered that the total amount of the penalty should be shared equally by all the five of them and paid to the inheritors of the sixth man, who was drowned (Manaqib hehr Aashob: vol. 2, p. 200).



Babu Ganesh Prasad Warisi of Allahabad a rich landlord and a banker related, “I had come on certain business to Unnao. On seeing a huge crowed I though that possibly there is a bridegroom, when I went near I found not a bridegroom but a saintly person, his face glowing with Divine grace. Everyone whether Hindu or Muslim was keen to have a look at him. Somehow I managed to go near him and offering a few cardamoms paid my respects. He received me in a gentle manner and said “Sait, we will meet again.”

Ever since I saw him I became restless, neither could sleep nor relish my food. So I immediately left for luck now and upon seeing my bridegroom felt tranquil. He received me in a pleasing manner and said, “Sait, you have come.” I expressed my desire to become his disciple and my wish was granted. He advised me to prefer Divine Love, never to give expression to pain or utter sorrow. On the very day I came back to allahabad my insanity grew more and more day by day. Once again I came back to Deva Shaeriff. While I touched his feet he gave me a gentle blow on my back and said, “Sait, you have come to the right place. Remain in this shrine with Fazal Hussein”.

Hearing this information the kith and kin of Sait Saheb occupied his estate and give him fifty rupees every month for his expenses. He began to remain in Deva Sheriff spending his time with our Saint and addressed him in submissive tone “my bridegroom” and paying respects offered a few cardamoms in similar way as he had behaved in the Railway Station.



There used to be a Jewish boy who would serve the Prophet. The Prophet treated him with affection as he did with other children. On one occasion the boy fell ill, so the Prophet went to visit him. He sat near his head and said to him, ‘Embrace Islam.’ The boy then looked at his father who was with him, and his father said, ‘Obey Abū al-Qāsim [the Prophet].’ The boy embraced Islam (and then died). The Prophet departed, saying, ‘All praise is due to God, Who saved him from the Hellfire.’¹

On another occasion, a Jewess brought poisoned meat of a sheep to God’s Messenger and he ate a little from it. After her plot was discovered, as the poison became manifest, she was brought to God’s Messenger and he asked her why she did it. She replied, ‘I wanted to assassinate you.’ God’s Messenger said, ‘God will not empower you to do it.’ The Companions submitted, ‘Shall we not kill her?’ He replied, ‘No.’ Thus, he forgave the Jewess for the wrong she did to him
