Shedding unlawful blood

Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Tarefe said:

أعظم الذنوب بعد الكفر سفك الدم الحرام، ولو سُبق الكفر بذنبٍ لسبقه القتل، ففي الحديث: لن يزال المؤمن في فسحة من دينه ما لم يصب دما حراما

The greatest sin after disbelief is shedding unlawful blood; and if disbelief had been preceded by a sin it would have been preceded by murder. It is mentioned in the ḥadīth: “A believer continues to guard his religion so long as he does not shed blood unlawfully.”
