بارك لله فيك .. سألتك سابقا عن حكم الدفاع عن النفس في حالة تعرضك لسطو أو تعدي عليك في البيت أوالمنزل .. و لكن هل هناك فرق بين أن تكون النية هنا هي إبعاده عن المنزل و طرده أم أن

تكون النية هي قتله .. أجبنا بارك لله فيك فجوابك له الأثر الطيب في نفوسنا جزاك لله خيرا

( the Questioner says): Allah bless you…I asked you previously about the ruling of defending oneself in the situation of your resisting a burglary or transgression against you in the house…But is there a difference between the niyyah (intention) being to remove or expel him (the transgressor) from the house and between the niyyah being to kill him?…

 

سؤالي هنا هو

هل جائز أيضا أن يحمل الشخص معه شيئا في السيارة ليدافع به عن نفسه ( في حالة ما إن كان هناك تعدي عليه من قبل لص ) سواء أكان يريد سرقة السيارة أو سرقة المال أو غيره .. لأننا كثيرا ما نسمع عن أشخاص أوقفوا شخصا بسيارته غصبا في وقت متأخر من الليل و ضربوه و سرقوا منه ما عنده من مال و أخذوا منه السياره و لم يجدوا لهم على أثر .. فهل جائز حمل شيئا للدفاع عن النفس (فقط ) و ليس للتعدي على  الغير .. بارك لله فيك و جزاك الله ألف خير و نفع الأمة الاسلامية بك

(The questioner continues): Here my question is: Is it also permissible for a person to carry something with him in his car to defend himself with (…if there is some transgression against him before theft) whether he (the transgressor) wants to steal the car, his wealth, or other than that..Because we hear a lot about people stopping someone in his car by force late at night. And they beat him and steal from him what he has of wealth. They also take his car from him and they do not find a trace of them (later).

So is it permissible to carry something for defending oneself (only) not for transgressing against others?

تكون نيته دفعه بالأدنى فالأدنى لاقتله ابتداءا فإن كان لايندفع إلا بالقتل قتله لينجو هو من القتل أو قاتله لأخذ ماله وهو ما يعرف عند أهل العلم بالصائل

Answer (Shaikh Maahir al Qahtaani) : In the beginning, his intention is to defend himself with the least amount of force necessary, not to kill him. But if there is no way to defend himself except by killing him, then he kills him to save himself from being killed or fought against and robbed. He (the transgressor) is known to the Scholars as the attacker.

ولاحرج أن يحمل معه سلاح ليدفع به عن نفسه كما جاء عن ابن عمر أنه حمل السلاح للص دخل منزله فكان السلاح معه في المنزل فاستفاده لذلك ولله أعلم

And there is no harm in him carrying a weapon with him to defend himself as there comes (in a narration) from Ibn Umar that he picked up the weapon when the thief entered his house. So the weapon was with him in the house so that he could benefit from it. And Allah knows best.
