The Islamic Ruling on Killing Women and Children in Battle and the Obligation to Avoid the Mistakes of Some Scholars

Shaykh Mūsá Richardson

A condemnation of the ruthless brutality and un-Islamic behaviour of extremist groups (such as al-Shabāb) who seek to legitimise the indiscriminate slaughter of civilians in the name of Islām.

The lecturer explains, using Islamic texts, how this is entirely unlegislated in Islām. Rather, it is the devious plot to follow up the mistakes of a scholar or the bloodthirsty cries of deviant groups (such as the Muslim Brotherhood) who seek revenge not justice, behaving contrary to the Prophet Muḥammad (ﷺ). Also recommended is the article, The Reality of al-Harakah al-Shabaab al-Mujāhidīn in Somalia.
