I came across a video of the burning of a Jordanian pilot by ISIS, and at the end of it, it quotes the statement:
" فإن كان في التمثيل الشائع لهم دعاء إلى الإيمان وحرز لهم عن العدوان؛ فإنه هنا من إقامة الحدود والجهاد المشروع "
attributed to Imam Ibn Taymiyyah, as if to validate their actions.
(I note that other sources indicate that 'الشائع' there, is a substitute for an original word 'السائغ')
Might anyone be able to further elaborate on the phrase above: its source(s) and meaning(s)?
