According to article 655 of Islamic punishment code which appoints" the punishment for attempt to the above – mentioned thefts in previous articles is up to 5 years imprisonment and up to 74 lashesh.", Attempt to thefts of the previous articles is known by super – crime article. Although the expression of previous articles ‘seemingly includes all the thefts mentioned in article 655 of Islamic punishment code but procedure unity vote issued by general board of supreme court of the country by number and date of 635 and 8/4/1378, respectively was issued in such a way that many of jurists by deduction of it, knew just attempt to thefts mentioned in articles 651 through 654 of that code as crime.
In this paper, the writers by studying judicial opinions and suitable scientific interpretation seek to consider attempt to all thefts mentioned in Islamic punishment code including theft with prescribed punishment except theft which has come after the article 655 of Islamic punishment code as crime.
