… “Jihad is a communal obligation,” meaning upon the Muslims each year. [Reliance of the Traveller, O9.1, pg 600]
How is Jihad supposed to achieved each year?
… “One may also leave (or cease Jihad) if the opposing non-Muslim army is more than twice the size of the Muslim force” [ibid, O9.2, pg 601]
Something that ISIS/ISIL is not following in the Middle East or anywhere, oh but wait it says one MAY leave so I guess they are all right.
“Jihad is also (0: personally) obligatory for everyone (0: able to perform it, male or female, old or young) when the enemy has surrounded the Muslims (0: on every side, having entered our territory, even if the land consists of ruins, wilderness, or mountains, for non-Muslim forces entering Muslim lands is a weighty matter that cannot be ignored, but must be met with effort and struggle to repel them by every possible means.” [ibid, O9.3, pg 601]
“Muslims may not seek help from non-Muslim allies unless the Muslims are considerably outnumbered and the allies are of goodwill towards the Muslims. [ibid, O9.7, pg 602]

Bidaya al-mubtadi’ (y21). 6.48–49)) [ibid, O9.9, pg 603]
When a child or a woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman’s previous marriage is immediately annulled. [ibid, O9.13, pg 604]
“So do not be fainthearted and call for peace, when it is you who are the uppermost” (Koran 47:35).
… Truces are permissible, not obligatory. [ibid, O9.16(2), pg 605]
… There must be some interest served in making a truce other than mere preservation of the status quo. [ibid, O9.16(2), pg 605]
I think I have done enough soul deadening for myself today and this is only O9 and I haven’t gotten to O10 and more.
