ABSTRACT
In all law systems, the safety of property, one's own life and chastity are among the indispensable and fundamental rights of human beings. In principle although it is fore- seen that the safety of these rights is under the supervision of the government, this safety right can also be given to the people themselves, which is known as legitimate defense. Accepted as a convenient way of legal safety, legitimate defense is the necessary and moderate defense right of a person against any aggression -which is present or will probably be present in the future - toward him (her) or another one's property, life or chastity. In order not to punish the one who makes legitimate defense, there are similar conditions both in Islamic and modern law. In Islamic penal law, legitimate defense is sometimes obligatory and sometimes left to the wish of the one obsessed.
