The Requirements of Jihaad
Question 1: Aswrwb sheikh you said war is deception. You also said that a brother can shave his beard and even wear a cross to deceive the kuffar. So can a sister uncover (remove her hijab) to blend in with western society in order to go for jihad? What’s the ruling for this? jzk.
Answer 1: A sister can uncover to save her life. She can uncover to plant a bomb on the battlefield with the permission of the Ameer or else she is not allowed.
Question 2: Do we pay Christians and Jews now to do jihad with us?
Answer 2: Umar (r.a) did it so you are allowed to use Christian sympathisers but there are conditions attached.They should foot soldiers and also they should not be commanders in the army but should receive orders.
On the authority of Abu Najeeh al-’Irbaad ibn Saariyah (RA) who said: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) gave us a sermon by which our hearts were filled with fear and tears came to our eyes. So we said, "O Messenger of Allah! It is as though this is a farewell sermon, so counsel us." He (SAW) said, "I counsel you to have taqwa (fear) of Allah, and to listen and obey [your leader], even if a slave were to become your ameer. Verily he among you who lives long will see great controversy, so you must keep to my Sunnah and to the Sunnah of the Khulafa ar-Rashideen (the rightly guided caliphs), those who guide to the right way. Cling to it stubbornly [literally: with your molar teeth]. Beware of newly invented matters [in the religion], for verily every bidah (innovation) is misguidance." It was related by Abu Dawud (no. 4607) and at-Tirmidhi (no. 2676), who said that it was a good and sound hadith.
Question 3: Salam Alaykum, 95 % of Muslim women don’t want to be widows, they don’t want to work and take care of our orphans and they won’t incite us to go for jihad. Should these women be considered enemies and divorced?
Answer 3: Shaikh can’t be reckless and say to divorce because already the divorce rate in the ummah is too. There is no woman who wants to be a widow. You should teach them the importance of jihad. Develop their imaan and aqeedah.
Question 4: Assalam Alaikum Shaikh, which English translation would you recommend? Please are there any limits to striking terror in the hearts on the enemies of Allah. Jzk
Answer 4: When you strike terror in the heart of the kuffar it should be in the battlefield.You are not allowed to cut down trees or kill women and children except when they are soldiers. If they are killing your women and your children then you are allowed to kill their women and children to take revenge. The lives of the Muslims are much more precious than their lives.
Question 5: Is it not considered stealing to take money in the form of credit or loan from kuffar government and use it for jihad and not pay back to them?
Answer 5: This question is incriminating, please ask your local scholars.
