Muslims must remember that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) laid out ethics of war and in that he clearly stated that “Do not kill any old person, any child or any woman. (Reported by Abu Dawud); Do not kill the monks in monasteries (Musnad Ahmad ibn Hanbal)” Also during a war, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) saw the corpse of a woman lying on the ground and observed: “She was not fighting. How then she came to be killed?”
Muslims have to find out these people among themselves who are willing to disobey Allah and the Prophet (pbuh) and the non-Muslims should try and understand that we Muslims are ourselves victims of terrorism and rather than questioning us, work with us to root out this problem.
