Dr. Monzer Kahf, a prominent economist and counselor, states the following: “Unfortunately, weapons in the hand of American government and some other non-muslim countries are used against humanity and for aggression not only against Muslims, and from Shari’ah point of view it doesn’t matter who makes aggression or against whom it is addressed as aggression in all cases is ugly and forbidden. The American aggression destroys life everywhere in the world, Yet it is in the name of democracy, because for the aggressing democracy means stooges government that behave according to the benefits of the big corporations. Yet my dear, your income is not Haram because you take it against your work and what you do itself, being in the service of a civilian non-aggressive objective, is permissible, even though we know it is performed under an umbrella of an entity that serves the aggressive militarism.”
