Assalamo Alaikum

Of course the punishment of fire is reserved for Allah Tallah.

My question is one not of theory, but of practical tactics.  How should a Muslim country fight a war and with what type of weapons are they allowed to use Islamically? Swords and rifles, of course, what about bombs/missles thrown from airplanes or what about tanks that throw their bombs great distances? Nuclear bomb? Land mines?

Civilians dont venture onto the battlefield, the battlefield is where they live, the aspects of war have changed from 1400 years ago, it is entire cities, beachfronts and the other strategic points.

Bi ismillahir rahmanir raheem

Assalamo Alaikum

Do we make Halal what Allah has made haram for practical reasons?

since when have muslims used modern weapons in civilian areas we have been the one to be invaded, would you advocate killing muslims?

i suggest you look at modern Jihad fighters and the tactics they use, no jet fighters tanks or shelling of civilian areas.

There is no excuse period, if you feel the need to kill civilians on an excuse of practicality than you have not done jihad properly starting with jihad an nafs and culminating in the jihad with the body and soul.

Ali (hs) would not kill his enimie imdietly even after he spat in his face so not to kill him out of anger as this was haram.
Rasul Allah (sallah llahu alaihi wa sallam) said: "Whoever knows himself, knows his Lord" and whoever knows his Lord has been given His gnosis and nearness.

My direct question was whether using bombs was right or not, How did you get the idea that I was advocating killing civilians?  The modern jihad fighters I know about are commiting suicide because they are facing military frustration and the fact that there is no organized khilafah where people are uniting under to fight.

All Muslims should read Tafsir Ibn-Kathir concerning At-Tauba, as it has been cited out of context both by uneducated Muslims to justify patently unIslamic practices and by non-Muslims determined to disparage Islam.
