Ancient War Criminals at the Time of the Prophet Hood (alayhisalaam)

Allaah (The Most High) informed us that Hood (alayhis-salaam) said to his people:

وَإِذَا بَطَشْتُمْ بَطَشْتُمْ جَبَّارِينَ

“And when you seize, you seize as tyrants?” [Soorah Ash-shu-araa: Ayah:130]

Imaam Ibn katheer (rahimahullaah) said: “He described them (as people of) strength, harshness and tyranny. [1]

And when you seize, you seize as tyrants: Without having any pity. [2]

Imaam as-Saa’di (rahimahullaah) said: “And when you seize’’ the creation (i.e. your opponents), you seize as tyrants’’ by killing, hitting and seizing wealth.  Indeed, Allaah granted them great strength and it was incumbent upon them to utilize their strength in obedience to Allaah; however they were boastful and arrogant.  And they said: ‘’Who is mightier than us in strength?’’ and they utilized their strength in disobedience to Allaah, futility and foolishness.  Therefore, their Prophet (Hood) forbade them from that. [3]
