Abstract: THE idea of perpetual war between Muslims and non-Muslims is held by jihadists who commit acts of terrorism in the name of jihad. A corollary to this idea is the concept of Dar Al-Islam (Land of Islam) and Dar Al-Harb (Land of War). In the jihadists’ mind, Dar Al-Islam refers to a land ruled by a Muslim ruler and the Shari’ah is held as the rule of the land. In contrast, a land is considered as Dar Al-Harb when it is ruled by non-Muslim or when the Shari’ah is not recognised as the rule of the land.
