This important collection reveals a multiplicity of perspectives on the Islamic law of war and peace. Prefaced by an original introduction, the carefully selected works demonstrate how the concept of Jihad is interpreted or misinterpreted. They also examine the rules applicable during the conduct of armed conflict and the significance of peace and security within Islamic tradition. The collection provides valuable insights into the compatibility of the Islamic law of war and peace and the law of armed conflict, demonstrating how the former could minimise unnecessary human suffering during armed conflict. This book is an essential source of reference for everyone interested in this vital relationship.

`The collection provides valuable insights into the compatibility of the Islamic law of war and peace and the law of armed conflict, demonstrating how the former could minimize unnecessary human suffering during armed conflict. Islam and the Law of Armed Conflict is an essential source of reference for everyone interested in this vital relationship.' -- Midwest Book Review
`This is a timely volume that sheds authoritative light on an often misunderstood topic in Islam. The strength of the volume is in the inclusion of materials from both established traditional and contemporary scholars on the subject. It provides a much needed enlightenment on the question of armed conflict and the use of force under Islamic law, especially at this time. I will recommended it highly for anyone interested in a better understanding of the subject.' -- Mashood A. Baderin, University of London, UK
