A Kadir Jasin
THE so-called jihad that Islamic State (IS) extremists are unleashing on Muslims and non-Muslims is not jihad at all. It’s murder and barbarism.
Prophet Muhammad (SAW) had, among other things, instructed his soldiers that:
1. Do not kill any child, any woman, or any elder or sick person. (Abu Dawud)
2. Do not practice treachery or mutilation. (Al-Muwatta)
3. Do not uproot or burn palms or cut down fruitful trees. (Al-Muwatta)
