By commencing formulation of legal and criminal rules based on Islam, blood money rules were written and enacted in 1982 titled as "Islamic Penal Code (Blood Money)" in the first period of the Islamic Consultative Assembly. It was reviewed in 1991and enacted with some corrections, but these rules were faced with some problems from the first years of enforcement. One of the most important problems is losses more than blood money. So, from the beginning of these rules enforcement, the judicial system was faced with abundant problems as regards claims for damages arising from physical injuries and since it was not clarified for the judges, different verdicts were issued in this regard. Although it has not yet been settled and a binding vote has not been issued in this regard, this opinion may be a basis for final corrections in blood money rules. It seems that lack of accurate knowledge about nature and philosophy of blood money on one hand and lack a comprehensive analysis of the executive problems on the other hand have converted losses caused by physical injuries issue into an acute problem of the Judiciary.
