” If one of the heathens We ask asylum , grant it so you can hear the word of God, and then escort you to where you can be safe. This is because they are men without knowledge” ( Quran 9:06 ) God
As the Prophet forbade his companions to affect the elderly , wounded , women, children and people in places of worship. Also prohibited the destruction of the fields. Degrading the corpses of the enemies was strictly forbidden and give them a quick burial was the respect commanded. War
The orders of the Prophet about the captives were strictly followed by his companions.

One of the partners related to this incident : When traveling with the Prophet , they found a bird with its young , so her mother took . The bird came and began to flap its wings, so the Prophet asked :
“Who has distressed this bird by taking its young ? Turn immediately ” ( Sahih Al- Bukhari) .
