Main Article Content
Amnesty, pardon, and forgiveness are the means, in Islamic theology and law, as in most other world traditions, of relieving someone from punishment, blame, civil liability or religious obligation. The same result is often achievable by recourse to certain other methods such as reconciliation, arbitration, and judicial order.
