Bombing in the US: unIslamic


Per the rules of War & Islam, the following has been prohibited by 

Prophet

Muhammad:



1. Killing traders, merchants, contractors and the like are to be 

spared if

they do not take part in actual fighting (kharaj of Yahya p 34, Kharaj 

of

Abu Yusufp 122)



 2. Killing non Combatants (Mabsit of Sarakhisiy, X, 64)



 3. Combatants are only those who are physically capable of fighting 

(Sharhj

al siyar al kabir, IV,78).



 4. Killing women (Idem, I, 59, 34), minors, servants, and slaves who

accompany their masters yet do not take part in actual fighting (Sharhj 

al

siyar al kabir, IV, 79-80), the blind (Mabsit of Sarakhsiy, X, 69), 

monks

(Sharhj al siyar al kabir, I, 33), hermits (Idem, III, 190), the very 

old

(Mabsut of Sarakhsiy, X, 6), those physically incapable of fighting 

(Idem,

p69), the insane or delirious (Mabsut of Sarakhsiy p 69)



 5.  Killing peasants when they do not fight and the result of war is



indifferent on them (Idem, IV, 79; for order and practice of Abu Bakr 

see

Tabari 2026, 2031; for Umar see Ibn Rush Bidayah alk Masjtihad I 311)





 And Allah the Almighty states in the Quran:

"Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you but do NOT transgress

limits; for Allah loveth not transgressors"

[Surah al Baqara (2): 190]





 the Prophet said:

"Do not be people without minds of your own, saying that if others 

treat you

well you will treat them well and that if they do wrong you will do 

wrong;

but accustom yourselves to do good if people do good and not to do 

wrong if

they do evil."

 [Tirmidhi 5129]





 Hundreds if not thousands of people have died. I suspect that few of 

these

people have done anything harmful to Muslims.



 Yes, the policies of the US may harm many Muslims e.g. in Palestine, 

Iraq,

South East Asia etc - but this does NOT mean that the rules of Islam 

are

broken and non combatants are targeted. Most people are no more 

responsible

for the political actions of their government any more than you or I.





 May Allah have mercy and guide us all, ameen.
