A systematization and codification of the international law of Islam in the second century of Hijrah. Contents : A lengthy introduction on the development of Muslim International Law and (1) instructions about conduct of war (2) the army's treatment of believers (3) re-acquistion of property (4) management of Kharaj (5) peace and reconciliation (6) intermarriages of the people of war and trade relations (7) injunctions about apostates (8) rebels (9) booty, with notes, references, bibliography and index. An example: al-Shaybani (749-804AD) enunciated the rules of belligerency for Muslims, in that the fighters for the sake of faith and religion are not allowed to kill women, children, aged persons, invalids, paralytics, monks and hermits, and other non-belligerents on the warring side, and that the killing of hostages is strictly forbidden. Muslim International Law may be defined as: That part of the law and custom of the land and treaty obligations which a Muslim state observes in its dealings.
