Salaam all,

This is 4:29
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ لاَ تَأْكُلُواْ أَمْوَالَكُمْ بَيْنَكُمْ بِالْبَاطِلِ إِلاَّ أَن تَكُونَ تِجَارَةً عَن تَرَاضٍ مِّنكُمْ وَلاَ تَقْتُلُواْ أَنفُسَكُمْ إِنَّ اللّهَ كَانَ بِكُمْ رَحِيمًا
Ya ayyuha allatheena amanoo la takuloo amwalakum baynakum bialbatili illa an takoona tijaratan AAan taradin minkum wala taqtuloo anfusakum inna Allaha kana bikum raheeman

The Aya says:
O those who made themselves safe (in Allah), do not eat your money between you, by falsehood if not it is trade based on mutual acceptance from you. And do not kill yourselves. Allah indeed happened to be merciful by you (plural).

My personal note:
The Aya gives talks about “eat your money between you” this statement points to eating each other’s money, or even badly spending one’s own money. The same applies for killing yourselves. It points to killing oneself and killing others within the society.

The Aya also seems to point out that trade which is based on mutual acceptance and willingness is acceptable.

Translation of the transliterated words:
Ya ayyuha allatheena: O those who
Note: the three words used here are callings.
Amanoo: made themselves safe
Note: the root is Hamza-M-N and it means safe or safety. AMANOO is an action that is derived from the root and that is completed. It means: the action of making the object (not mentioned and therefore the subject and the object can be the same entity here) become safe happened by the subject (third person plural). So, it ends up meaning: they made themselves safe.
La: not
Takuloo: you (plural) eat
Note: the root is Hamza-K-L and it means eating. This will then take different meanings depending on the different planes of thought that a person has. TAKULOO is an action that is being completed or will be completed. It means the action of eating is happening or will be happening by the subject (second person plural) of the object AMWALAHUM= their money, coming up.
AmwalaKum: your money/ your (plural) belongings
Note: the root is M-W-L and it means what a person owns of gold and silver. This is used to mean anything owned or just money. AMWALA means moneys of. KUM means plural you.
Baynakum: between you (plural)
Bialbatili: by the falsehood/ by the untrue/ by what leads to none.
Note: Bi suggests that what comes after it is either an association with the action, a tool of the action or an object of the action or any combination of the three. If bi serves as an object of the action that it serves as an emphasis of the action. ALBATILI is derived from the root is B-TTa-L and it means null or void or naught. ALBATILI is what is null and void or what leas to null and void. In here it is used for falsehood and untruth because they lead to null and void.
Illa: if not
An: that
Takoona: she be/ she happens to be
Note: the root is K-W-N and it means being. TAKOONA is an action that is being completed or will be completed that is derived from the root. It means: the action of being is happening or will be happening by the subject (third person singular feminine pointing to transaction). This in turn means: She be or she happens to be.
Tijaratan: trade
Note: The root is T-J-R and it means exchange of goods for goods or services for services or goods. TIJARATAN means trade.
AAan: about/ from
Note: this word takes the meaning of from, but at times takes the meaning of away from or about and so on. Here, it carries the meaning of about or from.
Taradin: mutual willing acceptance/ mutual acceptance/ approval
Note: the root is R-Dhad-Y and it means loving acceptance, or agreeing and loving at the same time or mainly approval since approval has the meaning of acceptance in a deeper sense. TARADIN is an interactive word and it means mutual acceptance/ approval/ willing acceptance.
Minkum: from you (plural)
Wala: and not
Taqtuloo: you kill/ fatally injure/ fatally harm
Note: the root is Qaf-T-L and it means killing or actions leading to death as in causing serious injury or harm. TAQTULOO is an action that is part of an order or a request that starts with WALA= and not. The order means: and do not kill/ fatally harm or injure..
Anfusakum: yourselves
Note: ANFUS is derived from the root N-F-S and it means to breath but is extended to mean self since the self breathes and that defines her existence. ANFUSA is a noun that is derived from this root and it means Selves of. KUM means plural you.
Inna: indeed/verily
Allaha: Allah
Kana: happened to be
Note: the root is K-W-N and it means being. KANA is an action that is completed that is derived from the root. It means: the action of being happened by the subject (third personal singular). This in turn means: He was or He happened to be
Bikum: by you (plural)/ in you
Note: Bi denotes that what comes after is a tool and/or an object or an association with an action that was mentioned. If it is an object of the action then it makes it stronger. KUM means plural you.
Raheeman: merciful
Note: the root is R-Ha-M and it means womb in concrete. This term is used to mean mercy and all the good that the womb provides. RAHEEM is the one with the womb-like mercy.

Salam all and have a great evening
