Summary/Abstract: The article focuses on the opinion of the jurists about the concept of rebellion (baghy) and its significance in Islamic law. The objective is to provide a short review of the issue. The article starts with a brief explanation of the lexical meaning of baghy and its position in classical texts. It attempts to shed some light on the issue of rebellion against unjust or corrupt imams, and what is the relationship between them from the perspective of the two prime sources of Islam: the Qur’an and hadith. The last part of the paper discusses the relationship between Islamic rebellion law and international law.
