    Terrorism

    Deliberate use of violence against noncombatants for political ends. Perpetrators can be states, agents of states, or individuals or groups acting independently or in cells. Does not apply to all acts of politically inspired violence. Islamic law condemns the use of violence except to combat injustice, particularly where acts of aggression have occurred, such as people being driven out of their homes, and even then circumscribes the use of violence with careful regulations concerning who may initiate violence, warning prior to the initiation of violence, the immunity of noncombatants, and requirements for the cessation of hostilities. Violence not sanctioned by Islamic law is called hirabah.
