Conditions for Jihaad
Ibn Juzayy Al-Mâlikî – may Allâh bestow mercy on him – in Al-Qawaaneen Al-Fiq'hiyyah [p.112] summarizes the conditions for Jihâd as follows:

  • That the fighters should be Muslims.
  • They should have come of age.
  • They should be of sound mind.
  • They should not be under bondage.
  • They should be males.
  • They should have the ability to carry out the Jihâd with their limbs and wealth (such as possession of good weapons).
  • As for what are imperatives thereof:

  • Good intention (to exalt Allâh's Words).
  • Obedience to the ruler.
  • Not stealing from the war booty.
  • Respecting the terms of treaty (with the enemy).
  • remaining steadfast in the battlefront.
  • Avoiding corrupt practices.
  • There is nothing wrong in fighting behind a sinful ruler (so far he is a Muslim).
