In Islam, “saving one human is like saving all of humanity” applies only when that human being is a follower of Islam.Â Â According to verse 5:32, a life is worthy ONLY when it follows Islam. This is why parts of the verse are always purposely omitted by Islamic da’awa gigolo’s Â when attempting to convert or confuse others.

How typically deceptive it is when Muslims refer to koranic verse 5:32 claiming that saving one human being is like saving all of humanity. They are attempting to prove that Islam cares about people of all religious faiths. It doesn’t.
First, verse 5:32 is Jewish in origin – it comes from Judaism, from the Jerusalem Talmud (Sanhedrin 4:1, 22a), where it does refer to people of all religious faiths. This is far from the only Islamic verse or concept snatched from Judaism. Others were pilfered from Christianity and Zoroastrianism.
When you cherry-pick from verse 5:32, as most Muslims do, it seems to condemn the killing of ALL humans, and to apply equally to ALL people. However, when understood in its entirety, this koranic verse permits and encourages the killing of non-Muslims. Furthermore, this verse is meant for only Jews to follow; they are referred to explicitly at the beginning of the verse:Â “we decreed for the Children of Israel”.
The verse states that killing (by Jews) is permissible under two conditions: (a) when a Jew kills for a justifiable reason, perhaps in self-defense (“for reasons other than manslaughter”), and (b) when a Jew kills a disbeliever, that is, someone who is not obedient to Islam (“corruption in the earth”Â orÂ “fitna”, which occurs when there are disbelievers of Islam).
The analogy ofÂ “all of mankind has been killed”Â when a human is killed, applies only when a Jew kills a follower of Islam. According to verse 5:32, a life is worthy ONLY when it follows Islam. This is why parts of the verse are always purposely omitted by proselytizers of Islam when attempting to convert others.
In order to avoid fitna (or a state of disorder due to Islam not being followed), disbelievers must be killed, as is presently occurring worldwide. Muslims, like ISIS, are killing other Muslims (Shiite or Ahmadi Muslims) because they are not considered to be Muslim enough.
If, as Muslims claim (based on verse 5:32), they cannot kill anyone of any religion, then you would expect, at the very least, that they not kill other Muslims. However, take a look around the world. Pick any country where death, oppression and destruction run rampant. You will see the extent to which Muslims with the power to kill (like ISIS) care about Muslims who are not considered to be Muslim enough, let alone people of other religions.
Here is koranic verse 5:32, which should be read in its entirety:Â “For that cause, we decreed for the Children of Israel, that whoever kills a human for reasons other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind. And whoever saves the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. Our messengers came to them with clear proofs (of Allah’s sovereignty), but afterwards lo! Many of them become transgressors of the earth.”
Here is the next verse, 5:33, showing how to punish the disbelievers of Islam:Â “Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified, or that their HANDS and FEET BE CUT OFF from opposite sides, or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment.”
In Islam, “saving one human is like saving all of humanity” applies only when that human being is a follower of Islam. Otherwise, it just doesn’t matter.
