Burning Someone With Fire, Part 7 (By Ibn Rushd)


Burning With Fire, By Ibn Rushd:

Ibn Rushd said:

“The proscription of mutilating the bodies of the enemy is fully established. The Muslim jurists (fuqahaa) agreed on the permissibility of slaying them with weapons, but disagreed about burning them with fire.

A group of jurists disallowed burning them with fire or even attacking them with it, and this is the opinion of ‘Umar and is also narrated from Maalik.

Sufyaan Ath-Thawree permitted this, while some of them said, ‘If the enemy initiates this then it is permitted, otherwise not.’ “

[Bidaayat Al-Mujtahid, by Ibn Rushd. Book of Jihad, chapter, “Identification Of The Harm Permitted To Be Inflicted Upon The Enemy”]
