Summary

The doctrine of war in Islam is a subject which is surrounded by much confusion. What all can agree is that war has featured overtly in Islamic theology and thought from its earliest days until now. Amidst the multitude of different interpretations which are sincerely held and practised by different individual Muslims, there is a ?benchmark? against which all are compared. This is the well-defined classical interpretation which was followed in the early years of Islam, and to which modern Islamic terrorists look for their justification. This book seeks to trace the development of the classical doctrine in medieval times and how it is used in our own age.
