Some People try to say Islam is Barbaric and cruel as they watch the basic Human Rights of these people being violated along with the targeting and killing of innocent Men, Women and children.
Let’s see what Islam teaches during times of war.
Before engaging in battle, the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) instructed his soldiers:
1. “Do not kill any child, any woman, or any elder or sick person.” (Sunan Abu Dawud)
2. “Do not practice treachery or mutilation.(Al-Muwatta)
3. Do not uproot or burn palms or cut down fruitful trees.(Al-Muwatta)
4. Do not slaughter a sheep or a cow or a camel, except for food.” (Al-Muwatta)
5. “If one fights his brother, [he must] avoid striking the face, for God created him in the image of Adam.” (Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim)
6. “Do not kill the monks in monasteries, and do not kill those sitting in places of worship. (Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal)
7. “Do not destroy the villages and towns, do not spoil the cultivated fields and gardens, and do not slaughter the cattle.” (Sahih Bukhari; Sunan Abu Dawud)
8. “Do not wish for an encounter with the enemy; pray to God to grant you security; but when you [are forced to] encounter them, exercise patience.” (Sahih Muslim)
9. “No one may punish with fire except the Lord of Fire.” (Sunan Abu Dawud).
10. “Accustom yourselves to do good if people do good, and to not do wrong even if they commit evil.” (Al-Tirmidhi)
Verse in the Holy Quraan
4:75 (Y. Ali) And why should ye not fight in the cause of Allah and of those who, being weak, are ill-treated (and oppressed)?- Men, women, and children, whose cry is: “Our Lord! Rescue us from this town, whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from thee one who will protect; and raise for us from thee one who will help!”

UN rights chief Navi Pillay says the killing of civilians in Gaza raises concerns over Israel’s precautions.
Israel’s military actions in the Gaza Strip could amount to war crimes, UN rights chief Navi Pillay has said, as Israel continued pounding Gaza for a 16th day.
Pillay on Wednesday also condemned indiscriminate rocket attacks by Hamas fighters.
“There seems to be a strong possibility that international law has been violated, in a manner that could amount to war crimes,” Pillay told an emergency session on Gaza at the UN Human Rights Council.
Pillay said the killing of civilians in Gaza, especially children, raised concerns over Israel’s precautions and respect for proportionality.
Israel has killed more than 600 Gazans and injured thousands. Two Israeli civilians have been killed by rocket fire into Israel, and 29 Israeli soldiers have died in the assault on Gaza.
Pillay added that Israeli civilians also had a right to live without fear of rocket attacks.
“Once again, the principles of distinction and precaution are clearly not being observed during such indiscriminate attacks on civilian areas by Hamas and other armed Palestinian groups,” she said.
The 46-nation council – which is the UN’s top human rights forum – was poised to call for an international inquiry into Israel’s offensive in the Palestinian territories.
The meeting was called by Arab and fellow Islamic nations.
It was set to vote on a resolution lodged by Palestine – which has observer status at the UN – condemning “the widespread, systematic and gross violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms”.
The resolution also called on the international community to “urgently dispatch an independent, international commission of inquiry” to investigate “all violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, particularly in the occupied Gaza Strip”.
The aim, it said, was to “establish the facts and circumstances of such violations and of the crimes perpetrated and to identify those responsible, to make recommendations, in particular, on accountability measures, all with a view to avoiding and ending impunity and ensuring that those responsible are held accountable, and on ways and means to protect civilians against any further assaults”.
