Our dear GoD who cannor read speak or write Arabic here is what al-Tabari wrote about Q5:32 or

مِنْ أَجْلِ ذَٰلِكَ كَتَبْنَا عَلَىٰ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ أَنَّهُ مَن قَتَلَ نَفْسًا بِغَيْرِ نَفْسٍ أَوْ فَسَادٍ فِي الْأَرْضِ فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا

And here is what he wrote

الْقَوْل فِي تَأْوِيل قَوْله تَعَالَى : { مِنْ أَجْل ذَلِكَ كَتَبْنَا عَلَى بَنِي إِسْرَائِيل أَنَّهُ مَنْ قَتَلَ نَفْسًا بِغَيْرِ نَفْس أَوْ فَسَاد فِي الْأَرْض فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاس جَمِيعًا } يَعْنِي تَعَالَى ذِكْره بِقَوْلِهِ : { مِنْ أَجْل ذَلِكَ } مِنْ جَرّ ذَلِكَ وَجَرِيرَته وَجِنَايَته , يَقُول : مِنْ جَرّ الْقَاتِل أَخَاهُ مِنْ اِبْنَيْ آدَم اللَّذَيْنِ اِقْتَصَصْنَا قِصَّتهمَا الْجَرِيرَة الَّتِي جَرَّهَا وَجِنَايَته الَّتِي جَنَاهَا , كَتَبْنَا عَلَى بَنِي إِسْرَائِيل . يُقَال مِنْهُ : أَجَّلْت هَذَا الْأَمْر : أَيْ جَرَرْته إِلَيْهِ وَكَسَبْته آجُلهُ لَهُ أَجْلًا , كَقَوْلِك : أَخَذْته أَخْذًا , وَمِنْ ذَلِكَ قَوْل الشَّاعِر : وَأَهْل خِبَاء صَالِح ذَات بَيْنهمْ قَدْ احْتَرَبُوا فِي عَاجِل أَنَا آجِلهْ يَعْنِي بِقَوْلِهِ : أَنَا آجِله : أَنَا الْجَارّ ذَلِكَ عَلَيْهِ وَالْجَانِي . فَمَعْنَى الْكَلَام : مِنْ جِنَايَة اِبْن آدَم الْقَاتِل أَخَاهُ ظُلْمًا , حَكَمْنَا عَلَى بَنِي إِسْرَائِيل أَنَّهُ مَنْ قَتَلَ مِنْهُمْ نَفْسًا ظُلْمًا بِغَيْرِ نَفْس قَتَلَتْ فَقُتِلَ بِهَا قِصَاصًا

And to help you al-Tabari makes it clear that Q5:32 is dervied from the Biblical story of Cain and Abel and that he who kills is also killing the children of he who was killed and this is what is meant by killing all of humanity and he makes it very clear that this was a verse addressed to the Jews

That is what your sources tell us and how come you did not know that? why the dishonesty on your part?

And here is what Ibn Kathir says

يَقُول تَعَالَى مِنْ أَجْل قَتْل اِبْن آدَم أَخَاهُ ظُلْمًا وَعُدْوَانًا" كَتَبْنَا عَلَى بَنِي إِسْرَائِيل " أَيْ شَرَعْنَا لَهُمْ وَأَعْلَمْنَاهُمْ" أَنَّهُ مَنْ قَتَلَ نَفْسًا بِغَيْرِ نَفْس أَوْ فَسَاد فِي الْأَرْض فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاس جَمِيعًا وَمَنْ أَحْيَاهَا فَكَأَنَّمَا أَحْيَا النَّاس جَمِيعًا " أَيْ مَنْ قَتَلَ نَفْسًا بِغَيْرِ سَبَب مِنْ قِصَاص أَوْ فَسَاد فِي الْأَرْض وَاسْتَحَلَّ قَتْلَهَا بِلَا سَبَب وَلَا جِنَايَة فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاس جَمِيعًا

He agrees with al-Tabari

These are your sources so next time before you tell us this nonsense that Q5:32 isa bout Muslims being told not to kill think again

For the readers: This verse in indeed an example of the Quranic layer called al-Isra'eeliat or verses in the Qur'an that comes from Jewish literary sources external to the Bible

See our dear GoD Islamic soucres are your worst enemies so if you do not like them then get rid of them
