ABSTRACT
The article analyzes the evolution of the concepts of jihad from the death of Prophet Muhammad in 632 to the death of Taqi al-Din Ibn Taymiyyah in 1263 based on the book "Evolution of the Concept of Jihad in Islamic Thought," by Maher al-Charif. The rules of Islamic warfare were first laid out in the commentary "Ahkam al-Jihad" in the 8th and 9th centuries. The earliest opinion on hostilities towards the kuffar or infidels was written by Kufan scholar Muhammad bin Hassan al-Shaybani in 804. Ibn Taymiyyah is said to introduce a radicalized jihad concept.
