The question of how Islamic law regulates the notions of just recourse to and just conduct in war has long been the topic of heated controversy, and is often subject to oversimplification in scholarship and journalism. This book traces the rationale for aggression within the Islamic tradition, and assesses the meaning and evolution of the contentious concept of jihad. The book reveals that there has never been a unified position on what Islamic warfare tangibly entails, due to the complexity of relevant sources and discordant historical dynamics that have shaped the contours of jihad. Onder Bakircioglu advocates a dynamic reading of Islamic law and military tradition; one which prioritises the demands of contemporary international relations and considers the meaning and application of jihad as contingent on the socio-political forces of each historical epoch. This book will be of great interest to scholars and students of international law, Islamic law, war and security studies, and the law of armed conflict.

Islamic Philosophy Of War And Peace

Islam means "peace" and "submission to God." With its ethical system of instruction for a balanced life based on faith and reason, how did this "religion of peace" come to be feared? After the 9/11 tragedy, Islam was judged by many in the West to be a hub of terrorism and a threat to world peace. People everywhere voiced concern over its concepts of war and Jihad. Ashraf traces these and related concepts from their inception in Qur'anic injunctions and the Prophet's precepts to their current interpretation, evaluating them in their spiritual, moral, juridical, and cultural contexts. Misunderstandings about Islam lie at the core of much bitterness and violence. With no central authority to definitively interpret its teachings, misconceptions regarding Islam's ideology of war and peace abound. To label Islam as militant is to misinterpret jihad as simply a call to war and to ignore its laws governing warfare, which emphasize restraint as far as possible. Islamic Philosophy of War and Peace explains the spirit of Islam, its mandate for peace, and what the pluralistic notion of jihad stands for in the hope that clearing up ambiguities will foster peaceful relations between Muslims and the rest of the world.

Since September 11, 2011, Dr. Robert Morey has been in great demand as an internationally recognized scholar on Islam and Muslim terrorism. He earned a Ph.D. in Islamic Studies and has been debriefed by both the FBI and Naval Intelligence on the meaning of Jihad and his vast knowledge of Muslim terrorism in the United States. His counter-terrorisms efforts resulted in several attempts being made on his life. For ten years prior to 9/11, he warned America that radical Muslims were planning to launch a Jihad or Holy War on the America (Dr. Morey's landmark work, Islamic Invasion, was published in the 1980s). "I have been in the military for the last twenty three years and it is refreshing to find someone who is not afraid to stand up to incredible pressure and political correctness. The man who proposed dropping atomic bombs on Japan was at first vilified, mocked and then denounced as crazy. But, in the end, it was the only practical way to win the war against Japan. Morey's plan to win the war on Muslim terrorism is the only practical way to do so with minimal loss of life and property." LCDR Bryan W. "As a member of the United States Marine Corp's most successful Cell Warfare program for over 18 years, the Combined Action Program, I became an expert on warfare, and, after graduating the Program, I was given the honor of teaching Cell Warfare to many soldiers. What is the basis of Islam's Warfare theory called "Jihad"? Dr. Morey's book documents that it is based on the pro-violent teachings and practices of Mohammed. Morey clearly understands the nature and aim of Islam's global jihad. Hostility, Hatred, Disorder, Slavery, Poverty, Ignorance, and Misogyny are the fruits of Islam. Just look at past or present Muslim culture and nations. Morey lays out a military plan to win the war against radical Islam, not just fight it. In war, we sometimes have to do the unthinkable in order to avoid the intolerable. If America does not do what is necessary to win the war against terrorism, terrorism will win the war against America." Steve K. (United States Marine Corp) "In this book, Dr. Morey gives a penetrating discussion of radical Islam. He reveals its diabolical nature and aim of world conquest. Within these pages the truth is made plain about the violent nature of Islam according to the Qur'an and accepted Hadiths. No democracy can ever flourish in a theocratic rule based upon Sharia laws from the Qur'an. Human rights are considered the product of Western Civilization and there is no concept of civil or personal rights under Islamic rule. In this book you will find the best solution to the problem of radical Islam. The facts will challenge you to do the right thing. These are critical times facing the world. Get it right " Prof. Colin P. Akridge (internationally recognized African American Scholar and Viet Nam War veteran) Dr. Robert A. Morey Ph.D., D. Min., D.D. Faith Defenders http: //

The Mamluks were, at one distinct point in history, the greatest body of fighting men in the world and the quintessence of the mounted warrior. They were slave soldiers, imported as boys into the Islamic Empire from the pagan Steppes, but they became its savior, bringing defeat to the Mongols and forming the machine of jihad that ultimately destroyed the Crusader Kingdoms of Palestine and Syria. They entered the Islamic world as unlettered automatons and through a total application to the craft of the warrior they became more than soldiers. After a bloody seizure of power from their masters, the descendants of Saladin, they developed a martial code and an honor system based on barracks brotherhood, a sophisticated military society that harnessed the state's energies for total war and produced a series of treatises on warfare that more than compare to SunZi's Art of War in their complexity, beauty of language and comprehensive coverage of the bloody business of war. Their story embraces many of the great themes of medieval military endeavor. The Crusaders and the deadly contest between Islam and Christendom, the Mongols and their vision of World Dominion, Tamerlane the Scourge of God and the rise of the Ottoman Empire whose new slave soldiers, the Janissaries, would be the Mamluks' final nemesis.

That Muhammad succeeded as a prophet is undeniable; a prominent military historian now suggests that he might not have done so had he not also been a great soldier. Best known as the founder of a major religion, Muhammad was also Islam’s first great general. While there have been numerous accounts of Muhammad the Prophet, this is the first military biography of the man. In Muhammad: Islam’s First Great General, Richard A. Gabriel shows us a warrior never before seen in antiquity—a leader of an all-new religious movement who in a single decade fought eight major battles, led eighteen raids, and planned thirty-eight other military operations. Gabriel’s study portrays Muhammad as a revolutionary who introduced military innovations that transformed armies and warfare throughout the Arab world. Gabriel analyzes the environment in which Muhammad lived and the religion he inspired as they relate to his military achievements. Gabriel explains how Muhammad changed the social composition of Arab armies by replacing traditional ways of fighting with a new command structure. Muhammad’s transformation of Arab warfare enabled his successors to establish the core of the Islamic empire—an accomplishment that, Gabriel argues, would have been militarily impossible without Muhammad’s innovations. Richard A. Gabriel challenges existing scholarship on Muhammad’s place in history and offers a viewpoint not previously attempted.
