Fight in the way ..

The phrase “Fight in the way of Allah”. This is not a command to go out and unjustly kill innocent Non-Muslims as some have concluded. It is a command to fight against those who fight you and not to become the aggressor i.e. initiator of violence, while doing so.

As is clearly stated in chapter 2 verse 190 of the Glorious Qur’an, “Fight in the way of Allah against those who fight against you,but begin not hostilities.Lo! Allah loveth not aggressors.”

Arabic: وَقَاتِلُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ الَّذِينَ يُقَاتِلُونَكُمْ وَلَا تَعْتَدُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُعْتَدِينَ
