Bopping em in the head.
« on: November 27, 2012, 07:56:04 AM »
So yeah. Say you're walking down the street and BAM a thug comes out and starts swinging. It is obviously instinct to protect yourself BUT i read a hadith somewhere which says do not hit the head. But it wouldnt be a very effective fight if you couldnt hit them in the head. Actually if you hit them in the head and knock them unconscious or disorientate them the fight could finish very quickly. So...whats the opinion?

As'salamu Alaikum Akhi and Everyone,

The Hadith is referring to the discipline.  You're not allowed to strike any loved one or family member in the area above the shoulders.  Also, a slave, if slapped, is automatically freed.  He/she becomes automatically free.  Please visit:

Also, in the days of the swords, where it's not just skills that determined the fight, but also the courage and the lack of fear from getting stabbed and killed by a sword, Allah Almighty Said in the Glorious Quran that the true solid, and fearless Believers who are not afraid of death, and who have the 100% Belief that they will got to Paradise if they die in the Holy Cause of Allah Almighty, they can face up to 10 times the number disbelievers:

[008:065]   O Apostle! rouse the Believers to the fight. If there are twenty amongst you, patient and persevering, they will vanquish two hundred: if a hundred, they will vanquish a thousand ALFAN (big group) of the Unbelievers: for these are a people without understanding.

The Arabic word ALF means:

1-  A group, or a large group.
2-  The number 1,000.


The Noble Verse here is saying that the True and Best of the Believers, can defeat numbers that are 10 times their size if they were less than 100 Believers.  And if they were 100 or more of Believers, then they can take on an entire big group or a small army.

Allah Almighty used the same Word, ALF, throughout the Glorious Quran to mean bringing Muslims into One Big Unity:

[003:103]  WaiAAtasimoo bihabli Allahi jameeAAan wala tafarraqoo waothkuroo niAAmata Allahi AAalaykum ith kuntum aAAdaan faallafa bayna quloobikum faasbahtum biniAAmatihi ikhwanan wakuntum AAala shafa hufratin mina alnnari faanqathakum minha kathalika yubayyinu Allahu lakum ayatihi laAAallakum tahtadoona

[003:103]   And hold fast, all together, by the rope which God (stretches out for you), and be not divided among yourselves; and remember with gratitude God's favour on you; for ye were enemies and He joined your hearts in love, so that by His Grace, ye became brethren; and ye were on the brink of the pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus doth God make His Signs clear to you: That ye may be guided.

‏3:103 واعتصموا بحبل الله جميعا ولاتفرقوا واذكروا نعمة الله عليكم اذ كنتم اعداء فالف بين قلوبكم فاصبحتم بنعمته اخوانا وكنتم على شفا حفرة من النار فانقذكم منها كذلك يبين الله لكم اياته لعلكم تهتدون

[008:063]  Waallafa bayna quloobihim law anfaqta ma fee al-ardi jameeAAan ma allafta bayna quloobihim walakinna Allaha allafa baynahum innahu AAazeezun hakeemun

[008:063]  And (moreover) He hath put affection between their hearts: not if thou hadst spent all that is in the earth, couldst thou have produced that affection, but God hath done it: for He is Exalted in might, Wise.

‏8:63 والف بين قلوبهم لو انفقت مافي الارض جميعا ماالفت بين قلوبهم ولكن الله الف بينهم انه عزيز حكيم

ALLAFA is a verb of ALF. 

I hope this helps, insha'Allah.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah
