Islam against Wahhabi terrorism and their betrayal of pledges

Malik, when asked whether safe conduct promised by a gesture had the same status as that promised by speech, said, ‘Yes, I think that one can request an army not to kill someone by gesturing for safe conduct, because as far as I am concerned, gesture has the same status as speech. I have heard that ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas said, ‘There is no people who betray a pledge, but that Allah gives their enemies power over them.'”

[Al-Muwatta of Imam Malik, Book of Jihad]
