Prohibition of Selling Weapons during Times of Sedition "fitnah"


  • | Thursday, 2 February, 2017

Divine Guidance and Prophetic instructions make clear for us the way of life through which we keep our communities safe and prevent the spread of seditions and corruption. In this connection, our gracious religion forbids selling weapons during times of sedition, so as not to ignite the fire of enmity and lead to killing many innocent victims from children, old people and women. 
Allah (Glory be to Him) says: “And if two factions among the believers should fight, then make settlement between the two. But if one of them oppresses the other, then fight against the one that oppresses until it returns to the ordinance of Allah. And if it returns, then make settlement between them in justice and act justly. Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly.” [Al-Hujurat: 9]. In addition, The Prophet(PBUH) is reported to have forbidden selling weaponduring times of sedition (Narrated by al-Bazar and al-Bukhari)
