The Qur’anic Concept of War
The book begins with a description of the historical, political as well as Qur’anic perspective to the formation of the Muslim Ummah. It then spells out the mission, role and characteristics of the new state within the framework of which it analyses the divine concept of war. In this context, it dwells on the permissible causes of war; its object, nature, dimensions and ethics. This is followed by a discussion on the Qur’anic concept of total and military strategy, and the divine rules and principles for the conduct of wars.
