Excerpts from:
"Liberating the Servants from the barbarity of Abu Qataad who calls for the killing of women and children."
Shaykh Abdul Malik Ar-Ramadaani

Abu Qataadah said (Ansaar Magazine no. 90, page. 20, 30/3/1995):

"Therefore, it becomes clear that threatening the offspring and wives of the apostates with death, as done by the Armed Islamic resistance in Algeria, in order to weaken their oppression of women, prisoners and brothers, is a legislated act and there is no doubt surrounding it."
Copy of actual fatwa is on page 171

Abu Qataadah issued a verdict (page 12) with the title:

"A fatwa of great importance about the permissibility of killing women and children to repel the danger of the killing and violation of the Ikhwaan (brothers)"    
Copy of actual fatwa is on page 222

[Exposing the immorality and wickedness of Abu Qataadah]

In Bukhari (3014) and Muslim (1744), narrations carrying a similar wording, upon the authority of Ibn 'Umar (Radiya Allahu 'anhu) who said:
"The Messenger of Allah (Sallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) prohibited the killing of women and children."

It is authentically reported by Malik (in Muwatta) and others, that when Abu Bakr sent the armies to Shaam he said:
"Do not kill women or children or an old aged senile person. Do not cut down fruit-bearing trees. Do not destroy an inhabited place."

Bukhari reports (3045) upon the authority of Abu Hurarirah:
"Allah's Messenger (Sallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) sent out ten spies under the command of 'Asim bin Thabit Al-Ansari, the grand-father of 'Asim bin 'Umar Al-Khattab. When they reached (a place called) Al-Hadah between 'Usfan and Mecca, their presence was made known to a sub-tribe of Hudhail called Banu Lihyan. So they sent about one hundred archers after them. The archers traced the footsteps (of the Muslims) till they found the traces of dates which they had eaten at one of their camping places. The archers said, "These dates are of Yathrib (i.e. Medina)," and went on tracing the Muslims' footsteps. When 'Asim and his companions became aware of them, they took refuge in a (high) place. But the enemy encircled them and said, "Come down and surrender. We give you a solemn promise and covenant that we will not kill anyone of you." 'Asim bin Thabit said, "O people! As for myself, I will never get down to be under the protection of an infidel. O Allah! Inform your Prophet about us." So the archers threw their arrows at them and martyred 'Asim. Three of them came down and surrendered to them, accepting their promise and covenant and they were Khubaib, Zaid bin Ad-Dathina and another man. When the archers got hold of them, they untied the strings of the arrow bows and tied their captives with them. The third man said, "This is the first proof of treachery! By Allah, I will not go with you for I follow the example of these." He meant the martyred companions. The archers dragged him and struggled with him (till they killed him). Then Khubaib and Zaid bin Ad-Dathina were taken away by them and later on they sold them as slaves in Mecca after the event of the Badr battle.
The sons of Al-Harit bin 'Amr bin Naufal bought Khubaib for he was a person who had killed (their father) Al-Hari bin 'Amr on the day (of the battle) of Badr. Khubaib remained imprisoned by them till they decided unanimously to kill him. One day Khubaib borrowed from a daughter of Al-Harith, a razor for shaving his public hair, and she lent it to him. By chance, while she was inattentive, a little son of hers went to him (i.e. Khubaib) and she saw that Khubaib had seated him on his thigh while the razor was in his hand. She was so much terrified that Khubaib noticed her fear and said, "Are you afraid that I will kill him? Never would I do such a thing." Later on (while narrating the story) she said, "By Allah, I had never seen a better captive than Khubaib. By Allah, one day I saw him eating from a bunch of grapes in his hand while he was fettered with iron chains and (at that time) there was no fruit in Mecca." She used to say," It was food Allah had provided Khubaib with."
When they took him to Al-Hil out of Mecca sanctuary to martyr him, Khubaib requested them. "Allow me to offer a two-Rak'at prayer." They allowed him and he prayed two Rakat and then said, "By Allah! Had I not been afraid that you would think I was worried, I would have prayed more." Then he (invoked evil upon them) saying, "O Allah! Count them and kill them one by one, and do not leave anyone of them"' Then he recited: "As I am killed as a Muslim, I do not care in what way I receive my death for Allah's Sake, for this is for the Cause of Allah. If He wishes, He will bless the cut limbs of my body." Then Abu Sarva, 'Ubqa bin Al-Harith went up to him and killed him. It was Khubaib who set the tradition of praying for any Muslim to be martyred in captivity (before he is executed). The Prophet told his companions of what had happened (to those ten spies) on the same day they were martyred. Some Quraish people, being informed of 'Asim bin Thabit's death, sent some messengers to bring a part of his body so that his death might be known for certain, for he had previously killed one of their leaders (in the battle of Badr). But Allah sent a swarm of wasps to protect the dead body of 'Asim, and they shielded him from the messengers who could not cut anything from his body."

You can clearly see how Khubaib was oppressively captured, and then on top of that he was deceived, and he also knew that he was going to be killed. Furthermore, Allah allowed him to be in the presence of one of the children of the very people that unjustly captured him.
Bearing all these factors in mind, this did not lead him to kill this child.

Ibn Hajr in fath (7/384) (May Allah have mercy upon him) said:
"This hadeeth proves that the covenant made with the polytheists has to be fulfilled, and the killing of their children must be avoided."

What has been reported by Ibn S'ad in At-Tabaqaat (2/91), Al-Waaqidi in Al-Maghaazi (1/392-394), Ibn Hishaam in As-Seerah (2/275), Abu 'Awaanah in his Musnad (4/221-223) and Al-Bayhaqi in Dalaa'il An-Nubuwwah (4/33-34), clearly illustrates the seriousness and gravity of killing women and children; this is the story when the Prophet (Sallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) sent some of his companions to kill Abu Raafi' Al-Yahoodi, and he was an individual who used to harm the Prophet.
Upon the authority of 'Abdullah ibn 'Ateek (Radiya Allah 'anhu) who said:
"When his wife screamed one of the men from amongst us began to lift his sword against her, but then he remembered that the Messenger of Allah prohibited killing women and he refrained his hand, if it was not for that it would have been the end of her that night."

Ibn Taymiyyah said in As-Saarim Al Maslool (2/258) after mentioning this incident:
"We only mentioned this to repel the misconception of anyone who may think that the killing of women was permissible the year of the conquest of Makkah then prohibited after that, actually the people of knowledge have no uncertainty about the fact that the killing of women has never been permissible?.
Even though this woman yelled, and the evil consequences of her scream were feared, they withheld from killing her hoping that scaring her would prevent any threat she posed."

This is a story about a disbelieving woman; where the companions of the Messenger of Allah refrained from shedding her blood despite the fact that she was complicating things for them.
That is the reason why Abu 'Awaanah entitled a chapter in his Musnad (4/220) with:
"The prohibition of killing women and children in the lands of war and fighting"

Imam Al-Ajurree (Shari'ah:1/325) said:

The scholars, past and present, have not differed over the fact that the Khawaarij are a despicable people, and disobedient to Allah and His Messenger, regardless of their praying, fasting and that they exert great effort in worship, as this doesn't benefit them in the slightest.
They feign to enjoin the good and forbid the evil, but this didn't benefit them, because they misinterpret the Quran in accordance to their desires, and they try to camouflage their falsehood before the believers.
Allah, the Most High, warned against them, the Prophet (Sallaahu 'alayhi was sallam) warned against them, the rightly guided Caliphs who succeeded him warned us against them, the Companions warned us against them, and similarly those who followed them in goodness.
The Khawaarij are the Shuraat (those who claim that they sold themselves seeking the pleasure of Allah), filthy and foul.  
All who walk upon their Madhab, past and present, from the rest of the Khawaarij, inherit their belief, and rebel against the Muslim rulers and leaders, and declare the Muslims blood to be lawful.
