Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Jihad: Part 5

In the previous installment, we found that Sharia confirms the definition of Jihad and the requirement that it be performed annually. Now we will discover Jihad’s significance and persistence in the Qur’an & hadith.

9:111. Verily, Allâh has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allâh’s Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur’ân. And who is truer to his covenant than Allâh? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success .

The relationship between Allah and the Muslims is master: slave. Allah has purchased them to fight in his cause, killing and being killed, in return, they receive admission to Paradise.

In Surah As-Saff we discover what a Muslim must do to be saved from Hellfire and gain admission to paradise. Can you guess what it is?

61:10.  O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment.

61:11. That you believe in Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad), and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allâh with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know!

61:12. (If you do so) He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of ‘Adn ­ Eternity [‘Adn (Edn) Paradise], that is indeed the great success.

61:13.  And also (He will give you) another (blessing) which you love, help from Allâh (against your enemies) and a near victory. And give glad tidings (O Muhammad) to the believers.

Muslims get out of Hell and enter Paradise by participating in Jihad!

How long does this continue?

Abu Dawud Book 14, Number 2526

Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Three things are the roots of faith: to refrain from (killing) a person who utters, “There is no god but Allah” and not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits, and not to excommunicate him from Islam for his any action; and jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal (Antichrist). The tyranny of any tyrant and the justice of any just (ruler) will not invalidate it. One must have faith in Divine decree.

Jihad continues from 610 to the end of the world. Now we know that Jihad is continuing & contemporary, not an anachronism.

Can Jihad be abandoned?

Abu Dawud Book 23, Number 3455:Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:

I heard the Apostle of Allah, (peace_be_upon_him) say: When you enter into the inah transaction, hold the tails of oxen, are pleased with agriculture, and give up conducting jihad (struggle in the way of Allah). Allah will make disgrace prevail over you, and will not withdraw it until you return to your original religion.

If Muslims exchange Jihad for productive pursuits, Allah will curse them until they return to their original religion. Jihad is their religion! Jihad must continue, it can not be abandoned.

Its all just words, right? Nobody ever did any of that stuff, right? Wrong! Each of the four major hadith collections has a ‘book’ dedicated to the subject of Moe’s battles.

The last item in that list is the Jihad book from Malik’s Muwatta, an early codification of Islamic law. Its heading conveys significant information to the discerning eye.
