Everything that is not expressly forbidden is permitted in Islam. Everything that is done with the intention of furthering the cause of Islam is also permitted

It is nowhere expressly forbidden in the Quran to kill women and children, or anyone else for that matter, therefore it must be permitted to kill women and children if a Muslim believer does it with the good intention of serving Islam and the prophet. Anything that increases the power of Islam in the world is good by definition. This is the supreme end of all Islamic activity and the Ummah itself.

If believers are also caught up in the carnage that is just unintentional collateral damage which Allah will dutifully forgive but it should be avoided if possible. This is why Jihadists try to filter out Muslims during their killing sprees.

If a believer claims that he killed women and children with good intention no one can dispute this, not even Allah and his prophet. Therefore this action is always good if it is done with good intention. This is Islamic ethics 1 on 1. The end always justifies the means. If someone believes that whatever he does is for the benefit of Islam then it is permissible. No one can say otherwise. Allah is not bothered about a bit of infidel blood. He is in it for the long haul. The Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev brothers who did the Boston Marathon bombing are a good example of this:

    Islam judges the man’s real deeds above hidden goodwill.
    Q.18, v.104. They are those whose effort turns vain in life of the world, whereas they expect to have offered the good travail.

    Moderate Muslim’s non-interference.
    Islam condemns, distances, verbally opposes but not reacts whatsoever against Moslems who wronged Non-Moslem victims, on purpose to permit a personal retaliation between them.
    Bukhari, Book 59, Hadith 628.
    Narrated Salim’s father: When there came the day then Khalid ordered that each man (i.e. Muslim soldier) should kill his captive, I said, By Allah, I will not kill my captive, and none of my companions will kill his captive. When we reached the Prophet, we mentioned to him the whole story. On that, the Prophet raised both his hands and said twice, O Allah! I am free from what Khalid has done.

    Killing the civilians is forbidden.
    Q.17, v.33. And do not kill the soul which Allah has forbidden, except by right.

    Shari’ah Minimalism. Per Qur’an Q.60, v.8, Allah doesn’t prohibit Moslems in personal level to perform the Golden Rule to Non-Moslem enemies, except 2 types of sinners: Non-Moslems who wage war against Islam and those who expel Moslem residents from the lands (including Moslem sinners in such a sectarian war).
    All civil crime can be pardonable except 2 things: War on Islam and expulsion.

  2. madmanna says:

    “Killing the civilians is forbidden.
    Q.17, v.33. And do not kill the soul which Allah has forbidden, except by right.”

    But which soul is this? Where is this “soul” which cannot be killed defined in the Koran?

    In the hadith you can always find both sides are true. The hadith can not give us any absolute ruling about whether it is forbidden or not to kill civilians.

    Kill them wherever you find them means anyone, civilian or not, of any age or sex.

    [4.89] They desire that you should disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so that you might be (all) alike; therefore take not from among them friends until they fly (their homes) in Allah’s way; but if they turn back, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and take not from among them a friend or a helper.
    [4.91] You will find others who desire that they should be safe from you and secure from their own people; as often as they are sent back to the mischief they get thrown into it headlong; therefore if they do not withdraw from you, and (do not) offer you peace and restrain their hands, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them; and against these We have given.you a clear authority.

    This is mandatory from Allah. Who can rule against him?

    [9.29] Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.
    [9.30] And the Jews say: Uzair is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!
    [9.31] They have taken their doctors of law and their monks for lords besides Allah, and (also) the Messiah son of Marium and they were enjoined that they should serve one God only, there is no god but He; far from His glory be what they set up (with Him).

    You don’t know how to read Arabic. do you?
    There is a word “And” twice among “seise them”, “kill them”, take not” that gives 3 options. They are:
    (i) Seising the apostates who surrender (usually female and children).
    (ii) Hunting down and killing the apostates who fled on the spot (usually men).
    (iii) Cutting off and freezing all resources of the apostates who are out of reach.
    Abu Bakr with agreement of the early Moslems just uses the option of enslavement upon the female apostates who follow a false Prophet Musaylama.

    In the context of verse, Qur’an Q.4, v.89 just directs the literary ability of readers with logical conclusion. We can’t seise them (surrendering apostates) if we kill them. It wouldn’t make sense to seise a corpse into jail. To possibly seise any surrendering apostate it must firstly be preceded by a logical condition of “finding” him alive somewhere.

    Moreover, the prohibition of befriending the apostates would not make sense at all if the apostates were killed. Logically, nobody would befriend a corpse.

    After all, Q.4, v.90 makes another exception that Moslems can’t publicly carry out a massive hunting to take down the apostates who fled to the country of Non-Moslems who have a covenant of peace with Moslems.

    “madmanna says: [4.91] You will find others who desire that they should be safe from you and secure from their own people; as often as they are sent back to the mischief they get thrown into it headlong; therefore if they do not withdraw from you, and (do not) offer you peace and restrain their hands, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them; and against these We have given.you a clear authority.”

    Once again, there are 2 options:
    (i) Seising the surrendering betrayers, to be the POWs.
    (ii) Killing the combative betrayers on the spot.

    Moreover, Q.4, v.92 once again makes another exception that Moslems can’t kill any believer (Mu’min). The Shari’ah court should examine whether the apostates and the betrayers still believe in Allah or not. Hence, at most, any “believing enemy” can only be seised or imprisoned for a life time.
