In Response To: Punishment of Self-defence killing? (Kianush, Iran)

Self defence is not punishable, though we are advised not to overstep the bounds of what we should and can do:

22:60 That is so. As for him who responds to aggression only to the extent of the injustice that was inflicted upon him, and is then wronged again, God will certainly help him. God is Forbearing, Forgiving. [22:39. ‘Afw = Absolving imperfections = Forbearance = Pardoning]

42:39 And whenever gross injustice is inflicted upon them, they defend themselves and stand up for their rights. [In the Divine System, the oppressed is helped and the oppressor is requited. Yastansiroon carries the meanings of defending and standing up for rights]
