  • Statement by Abu Bakr (ra)

    During the khalifah of Abu Bakr; who had appointed Khalid bin Waleed as the commander of the muslim army that was conquering Iraq..... (the below is extracted from the: The biography of Abu Bakr As-Sideeq. By As-Sallaabe.)

    During one of the said raids, two Muslims, who were staying among the natives of Iraq, were killed. The two men had embraced Islam and had with them a letter that guaranteed their safety, and that letter was from none other than Abu Bakr As-Siddeeq Ra. Muslim soldiers didn't know about the letter, and so they killed the two men, not knowing that they were Muslims. When Abu Bar Ra found out about what had happended to the two men, he paid blood money to their relatives, but he also sent a clear message to Muslims who lived among non-muslims, particularly non-Muslims that were at war with Muslims. He Ra said, "And that is what people who live with the enemy in their lands get." Or in other words, it was not the Muslim army that sinned by killing the two - since they didn't know that they were Muslim - but instead it was the two men who were sinning by living in the enemy territory."

      Jazakallah for reminding.
      Whosoever dies without participating in an expedition (Jihad) nor having the intention to do so, dies on a branch of hypocrisy.(Sahih Muslim)
