Ayah

وَلَكُمۡ فِى ٱلۡقِصَاصِ حَيَوٰةٌ يَٰٓأُوْلِى ٱلۡأَلۡبَٰبِ لَعَلَّكُمۡ تَتَّقُونَ

Translation

In the Law of Equality there is (saving of) Life to you, o ye men of understanding; that ye may restrain yourselves.<br/>

Tafsir

In retaliation there is life for you, that is great longevity, O people of pith, possessors of intellect, because if the would-be killer knew that he would be killed [in retaliation], he would refrain [from such action] and would have thereby given life to himself and to the one whom he had intended to kill; and so it [retaliation] was stipulated by the Law, so that you might fear killing, fearing retaliation.
