Bismillah...

This is a new series and today we have a FIQH topic

In order for us to go to the battlefield, we need requirements
-even for nikah, there is requirements (potency and sanity) are among its requirements
-these conditions must be met otherwise our aim and objective cannot be met
-Allah said that "physical fighting" which is a word without ambiguities
-qitaal is physical fighting (we cannot tamper with this word)
-the kuffaar canot misinterpret this
-we must have INTENTION to do jihad

It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: One who died but did not fight in the way of Allah nor did he express any desire (or determination) for Jihad died the death of a hypocrite. [Sahih Muslim, Book 20, Hadith 4696]

Yagzoo = physical fighting on a battlefield

Jihad (holy fighting in Allah's Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know. (Al-Baqarah 2:216)

-when we are teaching, we should use words without ambiguities
-and the Sunnah of Allah is to call the enemies by their name

Perish the two hands of Abû Lahab (an uncle of the Prophet), and perish he! (Al-Masad 111:1)

-otherwise hypocrites will say "I do not know who you are talking about"

THE REQUIREMENTS OF JIHAD:

1. EEMAN
-this is because we will have Jews and Christians living in the Islamic State
-these thimmi pay a tax (jizyah) (to protect his life and property)
-we cannot steal from them or our hand is cut off (Shariah law)
-we cannot force them to go to the battlefield to fight
-the mujahid must be Muslim
-we are to do Salah, Zakah, Sawm, hajj, Ribaat (to watch over the borders of Muslim State)

Sahi ibn Sad (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger i saiu “To guard the frontiers for a day in Allah’s cause is better than the world and what is on it. A expedition in the evening by a man in Allah’s cause, or in the morning, is better than the world and whatever is on it. And the space of a whip in paradise is better than the world and whatever is on it.’ [Tirmidhi 1670 and Ahmed 22935]

-doing ribaat is better than the dunya
-if we do not have eeman (which is needed to do these things)
-our Salah and pillars are not accepted
-Eeman is a condition for acts of ibaadah

"Verily, Allah accepts only from those who are Al-Muttaqûn (the pious - see V.2:2)." (Al-Ma'idah 5:27)

Christians have Muslim friends and go to masjid with them
-but there is no barakah for Salah because he is a kaafir
-we need eeman for acts of worship and a Christian has no eeman
-Eeman is also a condition for the nikah of a man to Muslim woman
-the men in Makkah said, "send them back"
-but Allah 'tala revealed an ayah as exception to this rule 60:10

O you who believe! When believing women come to you as emigrants, examine them, Allah knows best as to their Faith, then if you ascertain that they are true believers, send them not back to the disbelievers, they are not lawful (wives) for the disbelievers nor are the disbelievers lawful (husbands) for them. But give the disbelievers that (amount of money) which they have spent [as their Mahr] to them. And there will be no sin on you to marry them if you have paid their Mahr to them. Likewise hold not the disbelieving women as wives, and ask for (the return of) that which you have spent (as Mahr) and let them (the disbelievers, etc.) ask back for that which they have spent. That is the Judgement of Allah. He judges between you. And Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. (Al-Mumtahinah 60:10)

-they are not to be sent back to their kaafir husbands (not lawful for a Muslimah)
-so eeman is a condition for jihad and nikah
-if your husband does not pray and abandons Salah, you must leave him because he is a kaafir

EEMAN is a condition for a man to marry a Muslimah
-many Muslimahs would like us to change this, so they can marry boyfriends from other religions
-in darul harb, you are turned into a lowlife scum of the earth
-since we know this is destroying our eeman, make hijrah and go somewhere else
-in darul harb, there's many homosexuals and lesbians

EEMAN is a requirement of jihad (and we are required to go if we are a Muslim)
-but some of you are thinking
-'when Umar was conquering Persia, he took Christians to the battlefield"
-at the Battle of Qadisiyyah, he paid them a salary to fight, they did not do this out of eeman
-and they were not required to fight; it was their choice for pay
-WE CANNOT FORCE A CHRISTIAN TO DO JIHAD but Muslims are required
-a Jew fought, as well at this battle

There are 3 conditions to use Christians
i. The person needs to sympathize with Islam
ii. The person must be a foot soldier and not a general, who makes decisions
-see 4:141

...And never will Allah grant to the disbelievers a way (to triumph) over the believers. (An-Nisa 4:141)

iii. The person should be monitored and controlled
-this applies to Christians and Jews, they should be carefully monitored

DO WE NEED TO PAY THEM?
-every journey in life needs TAQWAH

And take a provision (with you) for the journey, but the best provision is At-Taqwa (piety, righteousness, etc.). So fear Me, O men of understanding! (Al-Baqarah 2:197)

-taqwah - a life that fears Allah, without taqwah, you might kill your wife

UK DOMESTIC VIOLENCE FACTS - 2 WOMEN KILLED EACH WEEK:
http://refuge.org.uk/get-help-nowithwhat-is-domestic-violence/domestic-violence-the-facts/

-without taqwah, you might abuse your kids
-so on the battlefield, we need taqwah, as well
-we could be a fataan (someone who does fitnaa)

This is why many people marry 2, 3 or 4 times
- (they cannot stay married because they do not have taqwah)
-some cannot stay married for more than 1 year

2. MATURITY

Ibn Umar (RA) narrated: I was presented before Allah’s Messenger (SAW) for the army when I was fourteen years old. But, he did not enlist me. Then, the next year I was presented to him for the army being fifteen years and he took me. Nafi’ said: I narrated this hadith to Umar ibn Abdul Aziz and he said, “The limit between a minor and a major (is this).” Then he wrote (to his officers) that those who attain the age of fifteen may be given share in spoils of war. [Bukhari 2664, Muslim 1868, Tirmidhi 1717]

-you could be a 15 year old boy and the ameer says 'go to the frontline'
-we are to be prepared to go for jihad when we reach 15 years old
-"spoils of war" = booty
-a 12 year old boy or girl can participate in jihad
-because you do not need to be 15 years old to make an IED
-these requirements are for frontline duties, child labour is not a crime, so they can be used
-better to work than shoplift, but we cannot work them for long hours

Aisha (RA) was on many battlefields (Khadijah was the first to embrace Islam
-Umm Amaarah saved the Prophet's life on a battlefield (so women are used in jihad)
-masculinity is not a requirement of jihad

Khawla bint al Azwar - helped us conquer Sham
-she was called "al faris al mulatham" because she wore niqaab on the battlefield
-Mu'waiyyah established our Navy
-it was prophesized by the Rasool, she going to jihad on a ship

3. SANITY IS REQUIRED FOR JIHAD
-this is a condition for Salah, Zakah, Saum, Hajj, Nikah, and Jihad
-we cannot marry someone who hears "voices"
-this is haraam and they cannot be "mad" (mentally ill), as well

Umar ibn al-Khattab said, 'I heard the Messenger of Allah (SAW), say, "Actions only go by intentions. Everyone gets what they intend..." [al-Bukhari (1) and Muslim (4692)]

Sanity is required because we need to make our intention before we do these acts of ibaadah
-and a madman cannot properly make his intention

4. SOUND BODY

Not equal are those of the believers who sit (at home), except those who are disabled (by injury or are blind or lame, etc.), and those who strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives. Allah has preferred in grades those who strive hard and fight with their wealth and their lives above those who sit (at home). Unto each, Allah has promised good (Paradise), but Allah has preferred those who strive hard and fight, above those who sit (at home) by a huge reward; (An-Nisa 4:95)

-we need to have a 'sound' body for jihad, there is no blame on the lame
-Abdullah Ibn Umm Maktoom - a blind Sahabah who went for jihad
-he carried the flag for the Muslims on the battlefield

No blame or sin is there upon the blind, nor is there blame or sin upon the lame, nor is there blame or sin upon the sick (that they go not forth to war). And whosoever obeys Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad SAW), He will admit him to Gardens beneath which rivers flow (Paradise); and whosoever turns back, He will punish him with a painful torment. (Al-Fath 48:17)

The blind, lame and sick have no requirement for jihad
-a sound body is for FRONTLINE duties
-because a man in a wheelchair can do jihad: stay home and make IEDs
-he can make 100 IEDs a day

30 OF OUR BROTHERS ARRESTED TODAY:

5. SOUND ISLAMIC LEADERSHIP
-see 4:59

O you who believe! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger (Muhammad SAW), and those of you (Muslims) who are in authority. (And) if you differ in anything amongst yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger (SAW), if you believe in Allah and in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for final determination. (An-Nisa 4:59)

-we need an Ameer, but not a caliph
-the munafiqoon say ‘there is no jihad without a caliph’, this is dangerous Aqeedah

SHAIKH BIN BAAZ FATWA IN SUPPORT OF JIHAD AGAINST SOVIETS:
http://studytrueislam.com/islam/history-current-affairs-of-islam/ibn-baazs-fatwa-in-support-of-the-war-against-the-soviets/

In 1979, USSR invaded Afghanistan
-Shaikh bin Baaz said jihad was required because Muslims were invaded by kaafir
-no one said they did not agree with him then
-his fatwa was supported then and even US sent stinger missiles to help the Afghanis

CIA SUPPLIED STINGERS TO MUJAHIDEEN:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Du5CpAPxrsw


-and we had no caliph back then, which shaitan teaches you ideology?

In 1258 AD, the Tartars entered Baghdad and killed Musta'sim, for 3 years we had no caliph
-then the Egyptians chopped off the head of the 3 envoys (Tartars who were boasting)
-the Egyptians did NOT surrender and hung those heads on poles and called for JIHAD
-and they took the war TO the tartars at Ain Jaloot
-this is about 10 miles outside of Tel Aviv (1260 AD was the battle)
-the Tartars were defeated and this is history's TURNING POINT
-it was the first time the Tartars were defeated by the Egyptians
-and we had NO CALIPH THEN so there is no such thing as a caliph being required for jihad
-the caliph was reinstated when the battle was over

http://www.authentictauheed.com/2011/08/168-battle-of-ayn-jalut-by-shaikh.html

It has been narrated on the authority of Jabir b. Samura that the Holy Prophet (SAW) said: This religion will continue to exist, and a group of people from the Muslims will continue to fight for its protection until the Hour is established. [Sahih Muslim, Book 20, Hadith #4717]

Jabir b. 'Abdullah reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (SAW) say: A section of my people will not cease fighting for the Truth and will prevail till the Day of Resurrection. He said: Jesus son of Mary would then descend and their (Muslims') commander would invite him to come and lead them in prayer, but he would say: No, some amongst you are commanders over some (amongst you). This is the honour from Allah for this Ummah. [Sahih Muslim, Book 1, Hadith #293]

We have jihad in Somali, Afghanistan, Iraq, Chechnya
-we have no caliph and we have plenty of jihad!!!
-a caliph is not a valid condition for jihad - dodgy people put dodgy conditions on jihad and nikah

A MUSLIM LEADER NEEDS TO HAVE THESE 7 SOUND TRAITS:

i. BRAVE
ii. PIOUS WITH TAQWAH
iii. KNOWLEDGE QUR'AN AND SUNNAH
iv. WISE
v. HUMILITY

In Battle of Badr, the Prophet (SAW) and his Companions were deployed in the nearest place to Badr's wells. But Companion Hubab ibn al-Mundhir (RA) was not satisfied with this. With great politeness he said: "O Messenger of Allah (SAW), has Allah inspired you to choose this very spot or is it stratagem of war and the product of consultation?" The Prophet (SAW) replied: "It is stratagem of war and consultation." Al-Hubab said: "This place is no good; let us go and encamp on the nearest water well and make a basin or reservoir full of water, then destroy all the other wells so that they will be deprived of the water." The Prophet (SAW) approved of his plan and agreed to carry it out. [Ibn Hisham: al-Sirah al-Nabawiyyah, 1/620; Ibn Kathir: al-Sirah al-Nabawiyyah, 2/402; al-Suhayli: al-Rawd al-Anif, 3/62; and al-Tabary: Tarikh al-Umam wa al-Muluk, 2-29]

Hubbab ibn al-Mundhir gave opinions to the Rasool
-who followed his opinions on 2 different matters, he was a military strategist

vi. MILD-TEMPERED
-when the Sahabahs disobeyed the Rasool, he did not get upset

And by the Mercy of Allah, you dealt with them gently. And had you been severe and harsh­hearted, they would have broken away from about you; so pass over (their faults), and ask (Allah's) Forgiveness for them; and consult them in the affairs. Then when you have taken a decision, put your trust in Allah, certainly, Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him). (Aali Imran 3:159)

vii. JUST, NOT OPPRESSIVE
-fear the dua of the oppressed man

Narrated By Ibn Abbas: The Prophet sent Mu'adh to Yemen and said, "Fear the supplication of the oppressed, for there is no barrier between it and Allah." [Sahih al-Bukhari (1395) and Sahih Muslim (19)]

Abu Hurayrah (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger said, "Three prayers are surely answered: the supplication of the oppressed, the supplication of the traveller, and the supplication of the father for his son." [Abu Dawud 1536, Ibn Majah 3862, Ahmed 7513, Tirmidhi 3448]

3 people's duaas are always answered:
i. traveller
ii. the father for his son
iii. an oppressed person

6. TRAINING IS REQUIRED FOR JIHAD
-jihad training is required if you are 15 years old

And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war (tanks, planes, missiles, artillery, etc.) to threaten the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others besides whom, you may not know but whom Allah does know. And whatever you shall spend in the Cause of Allah shall be repaid unto you, and you shall not be treated unjustly. (Al-Anfal 8:60) [Muhsin Khan]

"threaten" is not the right word - the right word is to STRIKE TERROR

Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of God and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom God doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of God, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly. (Al- Anfal 8:60) [Yusuf Ali]

7. TRANSPORTATION

8. MONEY TO BUY YOUR TICKET
-Allah said;

Nor (is there blame) on those who came to you to be provided with mounts, and when you said: "I can find no mounts for you," they turned back, while their eyes overflowing with tears of grief that they could not find anything to spend (for Jihad). (At-Tawbah 9:92)

THE TABUK EXPEDITION:
http://www.authentictauheed.com/2012/04/304-sealed-necter-part-21.html

-when the prophet (SAW) was preparing for the Tabuk expedition he made it public
-and this is not usually done by him because he attacks secretly
-but this time he was fighting the Romans so he made it public
-and this made 30,000 people to respond to the call
-he could not have mustered this number if it was not public

Some people came to attend the jihad but were turned back by the rasul
-because he could not find mount for them
-these Sahabah cried so much for being turned back
-this shows how much they love jihad, in contrast to the munafiqoon of today

The prophet said if you kill a kaafir he will take your place in hellfire

It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger Allah (SAW) said: A disbeliever and a believer who killed him will never be gathered together in Hell. [Sahih Muslim, Book 20, Hadith #4661]

-this was why the Sahabah cried for not being able to fight jihad

Narrated Abu Musa (RA) Allah's Messenger (SAW) said: On the Day of Resurrection, my Ummah (nation) will be gathered into three groups. one sort will enter Paradise without rendering an account (of their deeds). Another sort will be reckoned an easy account and admitted into Paradise. Yet another sort will come bearing on their backs heaps of sins like great mountains. Allah will ask the angels though He knows best about them: Who are these people? They will reply: They are humble slaves of yours. He will say: Unload the sins from them and put the same over the Jews and Christians; then let the humble slaves get into Paradise by virtue of My Mercy. [Mustadrak al-Haakim (1/126) No. 193, Dhahabi mentions that this narration from Haakim is upon the conditions of al-Bukhari and Muslim]

If you owe a person money you have to pay him back before you go to the frontline
-if the jihad is fardul kifaya
-but if it is fardul A3in then you do not have to pay him back before you go to the frontline

Some Muslim countries have ministry of defence
-this is bid'ah in Islam
-this gives the Muslims the impression that only defensive jihad exist
-but we have offensive jihad too, so all we know is ministry of jihad

If it is offensive jihad your parents can say: look after us
-but if it is defensive jihad then they cannot stop you

9. WEAPONRY
-when a Muslim country has nuclear weapons, people do not like to attack them
-when Hizbus Shaytan fought with Israel they shot one of Israel’s planes in the sea
-and this made them scared

Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of God and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom God doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of God, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly. (Al- Anfal 8:60) [Yusuf Ali]

Uqbah bin Amir (RA) narrated: 'I heard the Messenger of Allah (SAW) and he was on the minbar when he read the verse: "(And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war...) [8:60], Verily strength is in throwing (i.e. shooting), verily strength is in throwing, verily strength is in throwing.” [Sahih Muslim (Vol. 3 pg. 1522) No. 1917]

-this is why Allah said prepare for them with power
-He did not say only prepare for them with taqwa
-and then the prophet added the icing and said your strength is in your power

Ata’ bin Abi Rabbah narrated: “I saw Jabir Ibn Abdullah and Jabir Ibn Umair al-Ansari doing archery. One of them got tired and sat down, so the other Sahabi (companion) said to him, "You have become lazy." I heard Rasulullah (SAW) saying: "Everything which does not consist of Allah's Zhikr (remembrance) is laghwun (futility) and not useful, except for four things: Someone who is practicing throwing at targets (with stones, woods, arrows, etc.), the training of the horse by a man, someone who teaches his family to play and someone who practice swimming." [Nasa'i in 'Sunan al-Kubra' (8/177) No. 8891, Baihaqi in 'Sunan al-Kubra' (10/26) No. 19741, Tabarani in ‘al-Mu’jam al-Kabir’ (2/193) No. 1785]

Abdullah ibn Abdur Rahman ibn Abu Husayn reported that Allah's Messenger said, “Indeed, Allah will admit to paradise three men because of one arrow; The maker who has a good motive in his mind while making it, the shooter and the one who hands it to him. He said further, Shoot and ride. And, that you shoot is dearer to me than that you ride. Everything with which a Muslim man amuses himself is void except his shooting with a bow, his training of his horse and his playing with his wife for they are among the right.’ [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/174) No. 1637, Sunan Ibn Majah (4/89) No. 2811, Musnad Ahmad (4/148) No. 17375]

Learn how to make IEDs to fight the kuffaar
-it is better than throwing rocks, do not be a dinosaur

10. OBEDIENCE TO THE AMEER

O you who believe! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger (Muhammad SAW), and those of you (Muslims) who are in authority. (And) if you differ in anything amongst yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger (SAW), if you believe in Allah and in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for final determination. (An-Nisa 4:59)

11. TO PURIFY YOUR INTENTION
-a man approached the prophet and said some fight for fame, booty etc
-so who is fighting for Allah?

Narrated By Abu Musa: A man came to the Prophet and asked, "A man fights for war booty; another fights for fame and a third fights for showing off; which of them fights in Allah's Cause?" The Prophet said, "He who fights that Allah's Word (i.e. Islam) should be superior, fights in Allah's Cause." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 4, Book 52, Hadith #65]

-he replied that any man who fights to make the word of Allah the highest
-is the one who fought for Allah
-so this is a requirement for jihad, you need to purify your intentions
-do not fight for isms and schisms, fight for Allah

When Abdullah Azzam (RH) was in Palestine
-he asked them if there was religion behind their jihad they said no
-he left them and went to Afghanistan to fight fisabilillah

What is your intention for fighting?
-Allah hardly Asks questions in the Qur'an
-but one of them is;

Then where are you going? (At-Takwir 81:26)

-so you need to ask yourself, what is your aim? what is your intention?
-because maybe you are going to commit suicide fighting for democracy
-just like all those Egyptians who fought and died for democracy

NATO took part in Libya, when they saw it was going to have an Islamic twist
-they did not want Muslims to take over the oil-rich country

12. UNITY
-Allah said;

And hold fast, all of you together, to the Rope of Allah (i.e. this Qur'an), and be not divided among yourselves,... (Aali Imran 3:103)

-He also said;

And obey Allah and His Messenger, and do not dispute (with one another) lest you lose courage and your strength depart, and be patient. Surely, Allah is with those who are As-Sabirin (the patient ones, etc.). (Al-Anfal 8:46)

-this tells you unity in the battlefield is a must
-and so you are not allowed to take the fattaan to the battlefield
-they spread fitna among the ranks of the mujahideen
-they fan the flame of fitna

Had they marched out with you, they would have added to you nothing except disorder, and they would have hurried about in your midst (spreading corruption) and sowing sedition among you, and there are some among you who would have listened to them. And Allah is the All-Knower of the Zalimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.). (At-Tawbah 9:47)

13. SABR
-Allah said;

And obey Allah and His Messenger, and do not dispute (with one another) lest you lose courage and your strength depart, and be patient. Surely, Allah is with those who are As-Sabirin (the patient ones, etc.). (Al-Anfal 8:46)
