THE ETHICS OF THE CONQUEST, WAR AND PEACE: A STUDY OF THE EARLY ISLAMIC HISTORY

Abstract

Author(s): Celal EMANET

Islam is the religion of peace, goodwill, mutual understanding, and good faith; it will not acquiesce in wrongdoing. It men will hold their lives cheap defense of honor, justice, and the religion they hold sacred. The Islamic ideal is that heroic virtue combined with unselfish gentleness and tenderness as exemplified in the life of Prophet Muhammad. Muslims believe in courage, obedience, discipline, duty, and a constant striving by all the means in their power for the establishment of truth and righteousness. They know that war is an evil, but they will not avoid it if their honor demands it and a righteous Imam commands it. In other cases war may have nothing to do with their faith, except that it will always be regulated by Islam’s human precepts. The present article seeks to place the traditional legal discussion of the morality of the conquest, war and peace in the early Islamic history within an ethical context.
