Myth vs Fact

Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace.

Reliance of the Traveller, Book O.9.4

O9.4: Who is Obligated to Fight in Jihad

Those called upon (O: to perform jihad when it is a communal obligation are every able bodied man who has reached puberty and is sane.


The following may not fight in jihad:

-1- Someone in debt, unless his creditor gives him leave;

-2- or someone with at least one Muslim parent, until they give their permission;

unless the Muslims are surrounded by the enemy, in which case it is permissible for them to fight without permission.


As the Myth vs Fact Series draws to a close, I turned to Reliance of the Traveller, the all purpose handbook of authentic Islamic Law, approved by Al-Azhar University. This is part of Sharia. It confirms the fact that Islam is not peaceful.
