Muslim extremists launched an attack in the past using airplane to crash the tall building in United States of America. Many muslims as well as non-muslims were killed as a result of the crash from terrorists. Is this acceptable from the sight of Allah? How about the attack of India through terrorists that caused non-muslims as well as non-muslims. Now, let's examine Quran 25:68 whether their actions are acceptable from Quran 25:68:

Quran 25:68 (Yusuf Ali), "Those who invoke not, with Allah, any other god, nor slay such life as Allah has made sacred except for just cause, nor commit fornication; - and any that does this (not only) meets punishment." The phrase, Those who invoke not...any other god, in Quran 25:68, implies that these people are undoubtedly to be muslims. As the phrase, Those who invoke not...any other god, is mentioned in Quran 25:68 with the phrase, nor slay such life, it implies that we, muslims, must not slaughter our muslim fellows. The phrase, except for just cause, in Quran 25:68, implies there should be a good reason for muslims to slay muslims. The phase, does this (not only) meets punishment, in Quran 25:68 implies muslims would receive punishment. As the phrase, except for just cause, is mentioned in does this (not only) meets punishment, it implies that muslims will receive punishment from Allah if they slay non-muslims without a just cause. In the case where muslim extremists launched the attack to United States of America through airplane's crash had caused many non-muslims as well as muslims. Quran 25:68 demands that muslim extremists will certainly receive punishment on the Last Judgment Day for their wrong action to slaughter many muslims at that time. The same from India too.

Quran 25:68 (Shakir), "And they who do not call upon another god with Allah anddo not slay the soul, which Allah has forbidden except in the requirements of justice, and (who) do not commit fornication and he who does this shall find a requital of sin;" The phrase, they who do not call upon another god, in Quran 25:68 certainly refers to muslims. The phrase, do not slay the soul which Allah has forbidden except in the requirement of justice, in Quran 25:68 implies that there should not be any reason for muslims to slaughter muslims except it is required to execute justice to slay muslims. Or in other words, if the muslims are not quilty to be slaughtered to death, there should not be any reason for anybody to slaughter them. As the phrase, do not slay the soul which Allah has fobidden except...justice, is mentioned in Quran 25:68 with the phrase, he who does this shall find a requital of sin, it implies that Allah would consider the act for muslims slaughter muslims without a cause to be a sin. Let's look into the airplane's crash through the act of muslim terrorists that caused many muslims to perish since there were muslims as well as non-muslims in that building prior to the act of attacking. Thus, muslim terrorists have committed a sin that has been recognised by Allah as mentioned in Quran 25:68.

Quran 25:68 (Picthal), "And those who cry not unto any other god along with Allah, nor take the life which Allah hath forbidden save in (course of) justice, nor commit adultery - and whoso doeth this shall pay the penalty;" The phrase, those who cry not unto any other god, in Quran 25:68 certainly refers to muslims. The phrase, nor take the life which Allah hath forbidden save in (course of) justice, in Quran 25:68 implies that muslims must not slaughter muslims unless it is meant for the execution of justice. Or in other words, if there is no right reason to slaughter muslims, there should not be any reason for a muslim to slaughter muslim. As the phrase, nor take the life which Allah hath forbidden save in (course of) justice, is mentioned in Quran 25:68 with the phrase, whoso doeth this shall pay the penalty, it implies that muslims that slaughter muslims without a justifiable reason will have to pay the penalty. Or in other words, muslims will receive punishment from Allah as a result of killing muslims. Recalling the act of muslim extremists to launching attack through airplane's crash that would have killed many muslims that were in that building prior to the crash. These muslim extremists would indeed receive penalty from Allah for the blood shed through their launching of attacking in United States of America.

Quran 25:68 (Mohsin Khan), "And those who invoke not any other ilah (god) along with Allah, nor kill such person as Allah has forbidden, except for just cause, nor commit illegal sexual intercourse - and whoever does this shall receive the punishment." As the phrase, nor kill such person as Allah has forbidden except for just cause, is mentioned in Quran 25:68 with the phrase, whoever does this shall I receive the punishment, it implies that Allah would punish those muslims to slaughter muslims as well.

The phrase, nor kill such person as Allah has forbidden, is mentioned in Quran 25:68 with the phrase, except for just cause, it implies that muslims could slaughter muslims unless there have been a justifiable reason for this action. However, if there is no justifiable reason for muslims to do it, there should not be any reason for muslims to slaughter muslims.
