Do not kill your children for fear of poverty. We provide for them and for you. Surely killing them is a heinous sin.
Do not go near adultery. It is truly a shameful deed and an evil way.
Do not take a ˹human˺ life—made sacred by Allah—except with ˹legal˺ right.1 If anyone is killed unjustly, We have given their heirs2 the authority, but do not let them exceed limits in retaliation,3 for they are already supported ˹by law˺.
Do not come near the wealth of the orphan—unless intending to enhance it—until they attain maturity. Honour ˹your˺ pledges, for you will surely be accountable for them.
Give in full when you measure, and weigh with an even balance. That is fairest and best in the end.
Do not follow what you have no ˹sure˺ knowledge of. Indeed, all will be called to account for ˹their˺ hearing, sight, and intellect.
And do not walk on the earth arrogantly. Surely you can neither crack the earth nor stretch to the height of the mountains.
The violation of any of these ˹commandments˺ is detestable to your Lord.
