Mitzvah #113 - Causing others to sin

It is forbidden to cause others to sin.

Included in this Mitzva is the prohibition of giving people bad advice on any subject; religious, financial, with relationships or any other subject.

Included is the prohibition of helping people, or assisting them, or making it easier for them to do a sin.

This also applies to non-Jews transgressing any of the 7 Noachide laws.

Applies to everybody, always, everywhere

Verse: "and in front of the blind do not put a stumbling block" (Vayikra 19:14)
