Sura 6
Aya 151
۞ قُل تَعالَوا أَتلُ ما حَرَّمَ رَبُّكُم عَلَيكُم ۖ أَلّا تُشرِكوا بِهِ شَيئًا ۖ وَبِالوالِدَينِ إِحسانًا ۖ وَلا تَقتُلوا أَولادَكُم مِن إِملاقٍ ۖ نَحنُ نَرزُقُكُم وَإِيّاهُم ۖ وَلا تَقرَبُوا الفَواحِشَ ما ظَهَرَ مِنها وَما بَطَنَ ۖ وَلا تَقتُلُوا النَّفسَ الَّتي حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ إِلّا بِالحَقِّ ۚ ذٰلِكُم وَصّاكُم بِهِ لَعَلَّكُم تَعقِلونَ

Bijan Moeinian

Say: "Get together and let me recite what God has prohibited for you:

» Do not associate any partner with the Lord.
» Be nice [and generous] to your parents.
» Do not kill your children for the fear of poverty. I will provide for you and them. [If one is going through economic hardship, it is just a trial. Even if one has to die from the hunger, it will be his pre-destined way of leaving this life and happens only once. Why then worry about it constantly?
» Do not approach (secretly or publicly) the indecencies [such as going to a bar, even though you do not intend to drink.]
» Do not kill any living being whom God has forbidden to kill, unless in the course of justice. These are the Lord's commandments, may you be mindful.
