The Book of Jihād (Kitāb al-Jihād) is part of the fragmentary Book of the Disagreement among Muslim Jurists (Kitāb Ikhtilāf al Fuqahā') by Muhammad ibn Jarīr al-Tabarī (ca. 839 - ca. 923 C.E.), the famous Muslim historian and Qur'ānic commentator. It consists of several sections that deal with different issues related to jihād in classical Islam such as the rules of declaring and conducting war against enemy states and the rules of making peace with the enemy. Regarding each of these issues, the author expounds the opinions (or, "legal decisions") of the founders of the three major Sunnī schools of Islamic jurisprudence (fiqh): Abū Hanīfa (d. 767 C.E.) and his disciples, al-Shāfi'ī (d. 820 C.E.) and Mālik b. Anas (d. 795 C.E.) in addition to the other jurists. The present annotated translation of the Book of Jihād is based on the original manuscript located in Istanbul, Turkey. The translator has provided a description of the structure and content of the translated text which concludes that al-Tabarī's Book of Jihād presents a clear model for the relations between the Islamic state and other states. This work will appeal to scholars of Islamic Studies as well as Religion, History and Political Science.
