about this book
  • overview

    Thanks be to God, and peace be upon His Messenger, Muhammad, who was sent by God as a mercy to all mankind. God Revealed the Holy Qur’an to the Prophet Muhammad to clarify all things; it prescribes for humanity correct doctrine and high morality and shows us how to organize our relations amongst each other in a manner that wards off tyranny and preserves rights. This is a study of combat (qitaal) gleaned from the Holy Qur’an; it is from a series of lectures. The introduction includes, the ideal approach to Qur’anic exegesis. The research discusses the following subjects: the nature of the call to Islam (da’wah); the Holy Qur’an and the legitimacy of combat; the Holy Qur’an and the organization of combat and its rules. The research concludes that the practical combat which the Prophet (pbuh) and his two Caliphs conducted was an exact and correct application of what the Holy Qur’an prescribes in regards to legitimate combat, its organization and its rules.
