Here we see Abdal Hakim Murad’s 10 second comment destroy the Islamophobes’ false narrative of ‘Islam preaches terrorism’. He states, according to Sharia, that terrorism is classified as Hiraba (Hirabah) which is punishable by death. Thus we learn, Sharia is against terrorism.
Adal Hakim Murad Destroys Islamophobes’ Big Terrorism Lie in 10 seconds!
What is Hirabah?
The term hirabah refers to public terrorism in a war against society and civilization. In legal terminology it is defined as “spreading mischief in the land,” but its precise meaning, as defined by Professor Khalid Abou el Fadl, is “killing by stealth and targeting a defenseless victim in a way intended to cause terror in society.” This is the Islamic definition of terrorism. It is the very opposite of jihad.
The term hirabah comes from the root hariba, a verb that means to become angry and enraged. By derivation the noun harb (pl. hurub) means variously “war” and “enemy.”
