Sticking To Your Peace Treaty

Ibn Al-Mundhir stated:

“If a (Muslim) man enters Daar Al-Harb with a covenant of security then he is safe from them based on their agreement of security and they are also safe from him. Thus, it is not allowed for him to betray them, cause fear to them or kill them.

If he takes anything from them, he has to return it back to them, and if he takes anything with him back to daar Al-Islaam, he has to give it back. A Muslim should neither purchase such (taken) property nor destroy it because the wealth and property has a trust.”

[Al-Aswat Fis-Sunan Wal-Ikhtilaaf, 11/292]
