This work focuses on the use of suicide attacks by Muslims from the perspective Islamic jus in bello. It addresses the following questions: what is the position of Islamic law vis-à-vis suicide attacks? Are they martyrdom operations or perfidious acts? Are there any circumstances imaginable in which such attacks are allowed? Can the heroism of the companions of the Prophet and Imam Husayn on battlefields be considered as equivalent to suicide attacks? Who can carry out such attacks and against whom can they be carried out? Can women, children, and civilians be the target of such attacks? Are suicide attacks allowed by the Layha for the mujahidin in Afghanistan which they claim is based on Islamic law?
