Some young people today think that showing enmity towards disbelievers, those who reside in Islamic lands or those visiting here, is sanctioned by the Islamic legislation. For this reason, some of them even think it is permissible to kill them or kidnap them if they see from them something they detest.
It’s forbidden to kill a non-Muslim resident or anyone who legitimately and legally entered the country with the permission of the government under a contract of safety (indicated by the issuance of a visa). Showing any type of aggression towards them is also impermissible. Any criminal actions that occur from them must be reported to the legitimate Islamic authorities.[1]
