The claim states they “carried out a series of bombings with explosive belts and devices,” but has not been verified by Belgian authorities at this time.

President Obama addressed the tragedy while on a trip to Cuba, saying Americans “stand in solidarity” with Belgian people and that the United States will “do whatever is necessary to support our friend and ally Belgium in bringing to justice those responsible.”

An reportedly official statement by ISIS was sent to Amaq News:

Paris Attack (13th Nov. 2015) and Brussels Attack (22nd March, 2016) in the light of the Islamic Shari’ah.

Justifying the Paris attacks/Brussels attack(& the likes of it) in the light of the Qur’ān and sunnah and the ijmā’ & quotes from the scholars of the salaf.

We have seen so many people in the social media claiming that The Islamic state was not justified in killing the French “innocent” citizens in the blessed ghazwa in Paris, and that of the Brussels attack now.We have also seen some evil “scholars” – Scholars for the dollars quoting the textual evidences out of context. Today , we shall tackle this topic with evidences from the Qur’ān and sunnah and the ijmā’ & quotes from the scholars of the salaf

First we want to make it clear to all that what makes the kafir’s blood permissiable to spill is not him fighting the Muslims, rather it is his “KUFR” that necessitates his killing. So if one asks, can you kill a Kafir (who does not fight Islamand muslims)? the answer is a big YES.

[■] Explaining the “Mafhūm Al-Mukhālafah” (the understanding of the opposite) in Usūl Fiqh:

This is like when Allāh said: “And never pray (funeral prayer) upon any of them (i.e. the hypocrites) who dies, nor stand at his grave.” (At-Tawbah verse 84). So because the disbelieving hypocrites were those whom Allāh specifically identified as being prohibited to have the funeral prayer performed upon and their graves visited, then this necessitates that the Muslims are those who are to be prayed upon and whose graves are to be visited. And this is understood by the rule: “Mafhūm Al-Mukhālafah” (the understanding of the opposite), because if we say the disbelievers are those whom Allāh specified a prohibition regarding something, then this necessities that the opposite ruling would apply for those who are opposite to them (i.e. the believers). So this is the explanation for the rule: “Mafhūm Al-Mukhālafah”, which is also referred to as: “Dalīl Al-Khitāb”. ○●○●○●○

The example of the prohibition of praying the funeral prayer for the disbeliever indicating the permissibility of praying the funeral prayer for the Muslims and visiting their graves was used by Shaykh Al-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah frequently, as he said: “And do not ever pray upon anyone of them who dies and do not stand at their graves.” Therefore, the ‘Dalīl Al-Khitāb’ is that the believers are prayed upon and their graves are to be stood at.” [“Majmū’ Al-Fatāwa ”, Vol. 3/399; also look to Vol. 24/330 & Vol. 24/346 & Vol. 27/448] ???? ????

Allah says: “…But if they repent and perform As-Salat, and give Zakat, then leave their way free…” (At-Tawbah Verse 5)

NOTE: Repentance in the above ayah means saying the shahadatain and entering Islam. Ibn ‘Umar narrates that the Rasulullah(saw) said: “I have been ordered to fight against the people until they testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and until they establish the Salah and pay the Zakah. And if they do so then they will have gained protection from me for their lives and property, unless [they commit acts that are punishable] in accordance to Islam, and their reckoning will be with Allah the Almighty.” [Sahih Bukhari & Sahih Muslim] Therefore, the ‘Dalīl Al-Khitāb’ in the above ayah & hadeeth is that, if the kuffar don’t become Muslims, their blood would not be protected and would be legal to spill and their wealth would be halal to take. ???? ????

Allah also has made the blood of every kafir legal to spill in the general ayah: “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush” (At-Tawbah verse 5).

Allah just said the mushrikeen(idolators), so he never differentiated the “innocent civilians” from the “fighting soldiers”. So who are we to differentiate the kuffar today? ???? ????

Ijmā’ of the ulamaa on the legality of spilling the blood of the Kuffar:

● Ibn Kathir said: “Ibn Jareer narrated an Ījmā'(scholarly consensus) that it is permissiable to kill a kafir if he has no protection even if he is in Baytul Harām or Baytul Maqdis” [Tafsīr Ibn Katheer 2/6]

● Al Qurtubi said: “The ulamaa have gathered in consensus(ijmā’) that; if a kafir was to wrap his neck with his hands and the backs of all the trees in the Haram(Makkah) (in an effort to save his life); that would not prevent his killing if he had no previous contract of security” [Tafsīr At-Tabari 6/61] ♢♢♢♢♢

Quotes of the ulamā’ of the salaf about the legality of apilling the blood of the kuffar even if they dont fight us:

● Imam Ash-Shafi’ said: “Allah the exalted & blessed legalized(to spill) the blood and wealth of the kafir unless he pays the jizya(tax) or he is granted protection for a certain period” [Al Umm 1/264] ????

● Imam Ash-Shawkāni said: “As for the Kufar, their blood is basicaly legal(to spill) as it is in the ayah of the sword(At-Tawbah verse 5), what about if they start fighting(us)?” [Al Sayrul Jarār .. ????

● Umar bin Al Khattab said to Abu Jandal (May Allah be pleased with them both): “For verily they are Mushrikeen(polytheits), and the blood of one of them is like the blood of a dog” [Reported by Ahmad & Al Bayhaqi] ????

● Ibn Muflih said: “There is no expiation nor blood money paid for killing a kafir that has no peace treaty, because his blood is generaly permissiable(to spill) like the pig” [Al Mubdi’ 8/263] ????

● Ash-Shawkāni said: “The kafir, whether he fights(the Muslims) or not: his blood is permissiable(to spill) as long as he is a kafir” [Al Sayrul Jarār 4/369] ????

● Al Kāsāni: “Basicaly: Anyone(who is a kafir) from the fighters(i.e. the male that has reached the fighting age): it is permissiable to kill him whether he fights(the Muslims) or not” [Badā’ As-Sanāi’ 7/101] ????

● Al Qurtubi said: “If a Muslim meets a kafir that has no contract(of protection): it is permissiable for him to kill that Kafir” [Tafsīr Al-Qurtubi 5/338] ????

● As-Sarkhāsi said: “There is no sin upon one who kills the appostates before calling them to Islam because they are the same with the kuffar and the Message(of Islam) has reached them” [Al Mabsūt 10/120] ????

●Imam An-Nawawi said: “As for the kafir that has no contract of peace(with a legitimate Islamic State to which he pays Jizya), there is no liability in killing him, from whatever religion he might be” [Rawdhatu Tālibīn 9/259] ????

●Ibn Hajar Al ‘Asqalāni said: “The existence of the disbelief (Kufr) is what permits the blood” [“Fat’h Al-Bārī ”, Vol. 12/326; publication of “Maktabat Dār As-Salām” & “Maktabat Dār Al-Fayhā’ ”, 1st Edition, 1418 H.] ????


For those that say that we mistranslate these Quranic verses of Jihad and Qitaal and we go against the ‘known’ ‘ulamaa’:

then give them this audio by Shaykh Ibn ‘Utheymīn who they respect alot who says exactly what we have said now

Shaykh Ibn ‘Utheymin(rh), said in a tape recording regarding this topic: “And the second (matter) is the forbiddance of killing women and children in times of war. But if it is said: ‘If they (the kuffār) do this to us – meaning that they kill our children and women – Then do we then kill them?’ The apparent [dhāhir] is that it is (permissible) for us to kill their women and children- And due to the generality of the Statement of Allāh: “Then whoever transgresses the prohibition against you, you transgress likewise against him”{ Al-Baqarah: 194} [Refer to the side “B” from the third cassette of Kitāb al-Jihād from Sharh Bulūgh al-Marām. Starting at time frame 29:09] ????

In addition to the above cattegories of those of the kuffar that we shouldnt kill, we have :

1. The Children

2. The Women

3. The Old etc.

》》 So All those kuffar cattegories we mentioned that their blood is protected; they can be killed anytime should they violate their contracts by:

A.) If the dhimi/Mu’āhad starts fighting the Muslims etc he is killed and his blood would be legal to spill despite him paying jizya ????

B.) If the kuffar kill our children/Women/old we do the same: Allah Says: “So whoever has transgressed against you, then transgress against him in the same way that he has transgressed against you” [Al Baqarah 194]

So how many Muslim women and children and old have The French Kuffar killed in Syria, Iraq and other parts of the muslim lands???? We have not yet settled the scores, a few hundreds aint enough yet.

Allah also says: “And if you punish [an enemy, O believers], punish with an equivalent of that with which you were harmed” [An-Nahl 126]

Allah Also Says: “And the retribution for an evil act is an evil one like it” [Ash-Shūrah 40] ????

Allah also says: “And those who, when an oppressive wrong is done to them, they take revenge” [Ash-Shūrah verse 39].

So, this was a piece of article for the one who cry and mourn on the death of the Kuffar, while the death hundreds of muslim men, women, old and children dying daily in the airstrikes don’t effect them in anyway.
