Conditions of Jihad: Tamayaz Asafoof; Separating the battle lines between the Muslims and the Kuffar (non-muslims)

Tamayaz Asafoof (separating the battle lines) means where the believers are not mixed with the kuffar (non-muslims) in a way that the Jihad cannot be established except by injuring or killing the Muslims. In that case Jihad is left off as a precaution as the conditions of Jihad are not fulfilled.

Allah exalted be He said; “Had there not been believing men and believing women whom you did not know, that you may kill them and on whose account a sin would have been committed by you without (your) knowledge, that Allaah might bring into his mercy whom he wills; if they (the believers and the disbelievers had been apart, We verily would have punished those of them who disbelieved with painful torment”. (Surah al-Fath; Ayah 25)

So look how Allah ordered His Messenger (salalla alahi wasalam) with stopping fighting with the Musrikeen (idolaters) of Quraish and He ordered him with delaying it until the Muslims were separated from the kafireen (non-muslims). In order to protect their blood and thier souls.

Translated from the book Jihad, Its Types and Rulings and its Limits Explained and between Chaos by Sheikh Hamd Ibrahim Al Uthmaan, pg 160.

The Exception to this rule is Where the kuffare muslims as captives and use them as human sheilds

Sheikh ul Islam ibn taymeeyah Said”That if a non-muslim army have muslim captives and they(the kuffar) are using them as human sheilds and the Muslim( army) fears harm(on itself) if they dont fight them (the kuffar) then in this situation then they(the muslims army) fight the kuffar even if that leads to the killing of the muslim captives

And if they(the muslim army dont fear harm(on itself) then there is a permissibility to fight even if that leads to  killing of those captives according to one of the two opinions of the scholars,and these muslims if they are killed are shuhada(martyers) majmoor fatawav28 page 546-547
