Das Kriegsressort §61-69

Artikel 69: Die militärische Ausrüstungen und Logistik der Armee

Das Kalifat (Kalifatsstaat), die Verfassung, Artikel 69: Die Armee muss mit allen erforderlichen Waffen, Gerätschaften, Ausrüstungen, Kriegsbedarf und der notwendigen Logistik ausgestattet werden, die es ihr ermöglichen, ihre Aufgaben als islamische Armee wahrzunehmen.


Article 69:
It is obligatory to provide the Army with weapons, supplies and equipment, as well as all necessities and requirements, which enable it to carry out its mission as an Islamic Army.

Its evidence is the words of Allah (swt)

((وَأَعِدُّوا لَهُمْ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُمْ مِنْ قُوَّةٍ وَمِنْ رِبَاطِ الْخَيْلِ تُرْهِبُونَ بِهِ عَدُوَّ اللَّهِ وَعَدُوَّكُمْ وَآَخَرِينَ مِنْ دُونِهِمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَهُمُ اللَّهُ يَعْلَمُهُمْ وَمَا تُنْفِقُوا مِنْ شَيْءٍ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ يُوَفَّ إِلَيْكُمْ وَأَنْتُمْ لَا تُظْلَمُونَ (60)}

And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know [but] whom Allah. (TMQ 8:60). So the preparation for fighting is a duty, and this preparation should be open so as to intimidate the enemies and the hypocrites from amongst the subjects. His (swt) saying,

((تُرْهِبُونَ))

To strike terror is the reason(Illah) for preparation. The preparation will not be complete unless the reason for which this legislation came has been achieved, which is intimidating the enemies and the hypocrites. Therefore, it is a duty to provide all the arms and equipment for the Army in order that intimidation is produced and by greater reasoning in order to ensure that the Army is capable of carrying out its mission which is Jihad to convey the call to Islam. When Allah (swt) addressed us regarding preparation, He (swt) stated that the reason (Illah) for it is intimidating the known enemies, and those who are not apparent.

Allah (swt) said

((وَأَعِدُّوا لَهُمْ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُمْ مِنْ قُوَّةٍ وَمِنْ رِبَاطِ الْخَيْلِ تُرْهِبُونَ بِهِ عَدُوَّ اللَّهِ وَعَدُوَّكُمْ وَآَخَرِينَ مِنْ دُونِهِمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَهُمُ اللَّهُ يَعْلَمُهُمْ))

And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know [but] whom Allah.(TMQ 8:60). It is necessary to notice the precise accuracy of the verse, where Allah (swt) did not order Muslims to make preparation for the purpose of fighting, but rather for the purpose of intimidation, which is more profound. This is because the enemy’s knowledge of the force of the Muslims deters it from attacking them or confronting them. This is one of the greatest styles that can be used to win wars and attain victory.
