Bismillah...

DARS ONE

WHAT IS THE DEFINITIOIN OF JIHAD?

- The definition of Jihad given to us by the Islamic scholars is to wage war against the kuffar for the spread of la ilaha illallah Muhammad-ur-rasulullah

- It is not for the sake of racism, regionalism, tribalism, nationalism, etc.
- That is not jihad because it is not for the sake of la ilaha illallah.
- The Prophet said the man who fights for Allah’s word to be the highest is the mujahid fi sabeelillah.

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." [al-Bukhari (123) and Muslim (1904)]

- Jihad has to be against the kuffar.
- So when Muslims fight amongst themselves, it is not jihad; it is called fitnah.
- When Ali and Muawiyyah fought against each other, the scholars didn't classify that as Jihad.
- They said the fitnah of Ali and Muawiyyah.


THE FOUR REASONS WHY THE MUSLIMS ARE SUFFERING

1 - THE MUSLIM COUNTRIES ARE NOT GOVERNED WITH SHARIAH LAW

And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed - then it is those who are the wrongdoers. (Al-Ma'idah 5:54) Sahih International


2 - THE MUSLIM COUNTRIES ARE GOVERNED BY THE WORST OF ALLAH'S CREATION

- These Arabs in the Gulf, when they sell the oil they buy a yacht and they pack it with alcohol and Russian prostitutes.
- They live a playboy lifestyle with the wealth of the ummah.
- They ignore the plight of the ummah; they don't care about starving Muslims.

Hudhaifa ibn Yaman reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “By Him Who has my soul in His hand, the Last Hour will not come before you kill your imam, kill each other with your swords and the worst of you inherit your world (becoming your leaders).” [Tirmidhi 2177, Ibn Majah 4043]

- The worst from Allah's creation have become your leaders.
- These leaders in the Gulf compete with each other to see who can have the biggest bank account, the most alcohol and the most prostitutes.
- I'm sure ameerul mu'mineen uses the wealth from the oil to feed the Muslims.

- The leaders are very evil men and they don't want the khilafah.
- If the khilafah comes back, the wealth will be used to feed Muslims.
- The Muslims won’t use the wealth for prostitution and to gamble in casinos.

- These Gulf Arabs gamble away millions in casinos.
- They couldn't care less about starving Muslims.
- They don't want the khilafah to come back because the caliph won't tolerate their playboy lifestyle.
- Nobody hates the khilafah like these apostate leaders.


3 - THEY HAVE ABANDONED JIHAD

- The Prophet called the religion jihad.

“If you deal in usury (riba) and hang onto the tails of cows, being satisfied with cultivation and ceasing to take part in Jihad, Allah will inflict a humiliation upon you which will not be removed until you return to your religion.” [Reported by Ahmad and Abu Dawud and graded as authentic by Al-Qattan. Al-Hafiz states in Al-Bulugh that the chain of narrators is trustworthy and reliable]

- The Abassid caliph Haroon Ar-Rashid used to do jihad one year and make hajj the following year.
- He continued in this format till he died.
- This caliph didn't suffer any humiliation.
- The law of nature says you need to resist in order to exist.


4 - BECAUSE OF OUR SINS

Whatever of good reaches you, is from Allah, but whatever of evil befalls you, is from yourself. (An-Nisa 4:79)

Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (RA), who said that the Prophet (SAW) said: “They will follow the ways of those who came before them, handspan by handspan, cubit by cubit, until even if they entered a lizard’s hole they will follow them.” We said: “O Messenger of Allah, (do you mean) the Jews and Christians?” He said: “Who else?” [al-Bukhari (3456) and Muslim (2669)]

- This is the evidence to show that your sins cause you to suffer.

Verily! Allah will not change the good condition of a people as long as they do not change their state of goodness themselves (by committing sins and by being ungrateful and disobedient to Allah). (Ra'd 13:11)

- If you are suffering, Allah won't remove the suffering until you come back to your deen.


- The sahabas were enthusiastic to do jihad, even the female sahabas.

Narrated `Aisha: (the mother of the faithful believers) I said, "O Messenger of Allah! We consider Jihad as the best deed." The Prophet said, "The best Jihad (for women) is Hajj Mabrur." [Sahih Bukhari (2/133) No. 1520]

- However a woman can go to jihad with the permission of the ameer.
- This is because of the hadith of Umm Haram.

It was narrated from Anas ibn Malik (RA) that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) used to enter upon Umm Haram bint Milhan and she would give him food. Umm Haram was married to 'Ubaidah ibn al-Samit. One day the Messenger of Allah (SAW) entered upon her, and she provided him with food and started grooming his head. The the Messenger of Allah (SAW) slept, then he woke up smiling. Umm Haram asked, "What is making you smile, O Messenger of Allah?" He said: "Some people of my Ummah were shown to me (in my dream) campaigning for the sake of Allah, sailing in the middle of the sea like kings on thrones."Umm Haram added, "I said, 'O Messenger of Allah! Pray to Allah to make me one of them.'" So the Messenger of Allah (SAW) prayed to Allah for her and then laid his head down (and slept). Then he woke up smiling (again). (Umm Haram added): I said, "What is making you smile, O Messenger of Allah?" He said, "Some people of my Ummah were shown to me (in my dream) campaigning for the sake of Allah." He said the same as he had said before. I said, "O Messenger of Allah! Pray to Allah to make me one of them." He said: "You will be among the first ones." Then Umm Haram sailed across the sea during the time of Mu'awiyah ibn Abi Sufyan, and she fell down from her riding animal after coming ashore, and died. [al-Bukhari (2877) and Muslim (1912)]

- Muawiyyah is the caliph who established the navy and Umm Haram went out for jihad with the navy.
- She died on her way back from the jihad.
- The scholars say she fell off her horse and died.
- So her grave is now in Cyprus.

- It's easy for a woman to go for jihad because it's easy for her to make an IED and transport it under her abaya.
- If women are not allowed to go to jihad, why did the Prophet tell Umm Haram she shall be one of them?

- The male sahabas were filled with enthusiam to go for jihad as well.
- The evidence for this is Surah Tawbah verse 92.

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)

- Their eyes were filled with tears because they missed the opportunity to go to the frontline with the Prophet.
- This is why we hate the shiites, because they hate the sahabas.

- It is worthy of mentioning that Allah said 'kutiba' which means prescribed for fasting and Allah used the same word for jihad.

O you who believe! Observing As-Saum (the fasting) is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become Al-Muttaqun (the pious - see V.2:2). (Al-Baqarah 2:183)

- This is why you are fasting now.
- 'Kutiba' means the thing is fardul ayn.

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)

- This means jihad training is fardul ayn on every Muslim.
- When you are trained if the ameer sends you to the frontline, you have to go.
- They trained you and it is expensive to train a person.

- Women can be trained with the permission of the ameer.
- They can be trained to make IEDs.
- In Palestine and Chechnya, women take up guns and shoot kuffar.
- The reason why these women take up arms is because their husbands die.

- Some of you women are afraid to kill a lamb because you have pity for the lamb.
- Yet you can blow the head of a kaafir off and have no qualms about it.
- Especially if she was raped by a kaafir, she could blow his head off and have no qualms about it.


THE 21 AIMS AND OBJECTIVES OF JIHAD

- These notes are from a combination of different scholars.

1 - TO PROTECT THE MUSLIMS FROM TYRANNY, OPPRESSION AND PERSECUTION

And if Allah did not check one set of people by means of another, the earth would indeed be full of mischief. But Allah is full of Bounty to the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists). (Al-Baqarah 2:251)

- Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi gave a khutba in Arabic in Mosul.
- Ameerul Mu'mineed gave a khutba and you don't understand it.
- That's shameful.

Imam Shafi'i (rh) said: "Every Muslim is obligated to learn the Arabic tongue to the utmost of his power in order [to be able] to profess through it that "There is no Ilah but Allah and Muhammad is His Messenger" and to utter what is mandated upon him, the takbir, and what is commanded, the tasbih, and the tashahhud and others." [al-Risala al-Shafi'i (pg. 47)]

Ibn Taymiyyah said: "Moreover, the Arabic language itself is part of Islam, and knowing Arabic is an obligatory duty. If it is a duty to understand the Qur’an and Sunnah, and they cannot be understood without knowing Arabic, then the means that is needed to fulfil the duty is also obligatory.” [Iqtida' as-Sirat al-Mustaqeem (1/527)]

- BBC commented on the khutba and said this is the answer to the Iraqi government.
- The Iraqi government said they killed Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi.
- They spread propaganda.
- So he came and gave a khutba.

- A shia is a low life scum of the earth, children of mut'ah.
- You killed a ghost, you didn't kill ameerul mu'mineen.

And what is wrong with you that you fight not in the Cause of Allah, and for those weak, ill­treated and oppressed among men, women, and children, whose cry is: "Our Lord! Rescue us from this town whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from You one who will protect, and raise for us from You one who will help." (An-Nisa 4:75)

- The one who will rescue the people is ameerul mu'mineen.
- The government of Nouri Al Maliki put many Muslim women in prison and shiite men raped them.
- These women made this dua found in the above ayah (4:75).

- Thousands of sunnis were in jail.
- All the Iraqi soldiers are guitly of killing sunnis and raping sunni girls.

- When you want to implement shariah, you can't show any mercy.

Imam ibn Athir records in ‘Kamil’ the famous story of a Muslim woman who was captured by the Romans and held in a place named ‘Amuriyyah. Not content with only capturing her they tried to dishonour her as well. Frightened and alone she called out the name of the Caliph, “[Ya Mu’tasim] Oh Mu’tasim.” A man witnessed this incident and rushed to the Caliph informing him of what had happened. When he heard the plight of this woman he responded bravely, “Labbaik [I am here at your call].” He prepared a large army and set off for battle and to rescue the woman. Mu’tasim’s army conquered the enemy and entered ‘Amuriyyah. After destroying the enemy stronghold, they came to the woman and freed her. [Ibn Athīr's al-Kāmil]

Caliph Mu'tasim wrote back to the Roman Emperor of Byzantium, saying: "Ya kalb ar-Rum! (Oh you Roman dog!) I have an army of men that stretch from where I stand (Baghdad) to where you stand (Constantinople), who love to fight and die as much as your men love to live." [Ibn Athīr's al-Kāmil]


- The caliph led the army himself.
- Mu'tasim called the King of Rome, the dog of Rome.
- He rescued the Muslim woman himself.

- In those days the Muslims were strong because they didn't abandon jihad.
- So he was able to call him the dog of Rome and he led an army to rescue one Muslim woman.
- Thousands of Muslim women are being raped.

- They don't want the caliphate to come back because they don't want the Muslims' lives to be protected.
- Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi said he's going to take revenge for what is happening in Burma and CAR.
- They killed the Muslims in CAR and ate them.
- These people are brain dead.


2 - TO SPREAD ISLAM

On the authority of Abdullah ibn Umar (RA), that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “I have been ordered to fight against the people until they testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and until they establish the salah and pay the zakat. And if they do that then they will have gained protection from me for their lives and property, unless [they commit acts that are punishable] in Islam, and their reckoning will be with Allah.” [al-Bukhari (25) and Muslim (22)]

Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. He it is Who created for you all that is on earth. Then He Istawa (rose over) towards the heaven and made them seven heavens and He is the All-Knower of everything. (At-Tawbah 9:29)

- The Muslims conquered Egypt, Persia, Afghanistan, India, Syria, Jordan, Spain, etc. so these countries became Muslim countries.
- It is called 'futuhaat'.


3 - TO WIPE OUT FITNA

- Allah said fitna is worse than slaughter.

And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah is worse than killing. And fight not with them at Al-Masjid-al-Haram (the sanctuary at Makkah), unless they (first) fight you there. But if they attack you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers. (Al-Baqarah 2:191)

And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world[]]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do. (Al-Anfal 8:39)

- Didn't you go on youtube and see ISIS knocking down the shrines of the goofy Sufis and the shady Shiites?

- Allah said to fight them till there's no more fitna.
- Fitna is shirk.

- The reason why they knocked down these shrines is because the Prophet knocked down masjid ad-diraar which was built by hypocrites.
- It's better to knock it down and build something else.


4 - TO PROTECT THE BORDERS OF THE ISLAMIC STATE

- When you think everything is fine because of the caliphate that is wrong.
- You have to pick up your arms when the caliphate is announced.
- Because we are mujahideen sans frontiers.
- You pick up your arms and expand the Islamic State.
- The sykes-picot agreement is in the dustbin of history.

The sykes picot agreement:

- Many Muslims have never heard about the sykes-picot agreement.

- The British were the first to use chemical weapons against Iraq.
- This is how evil they are.
- This took place after the First World War after the Ottoman Empire collapsed.
- The British and the French sat at a round table to decide how to divide Muslim land between them.

- To tear down the border between Syria and Iraq is similar to when the Prophet broke the idols in the kaaba.
- That border was a false deity.
- I am appalled that many Muslims haven't heard of the Sykes-Picot agreement.
- The British took Iraq and the French took Syria.
- This is humiliation.

Sahl bin Sa'd (RA) reported: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "Observing Ribat (e.g., guarding the Islamic frontier for the sake of Allah) for a single day is far better than the world and all that it contains. A place in Jannah as small as the whip of your horse is far better than the world and all that it contains. An endeavour (fighting) in the Cause of Allah in the evening or in the morning is far better than the world and all that it contains." [al-Bukhari (2892) and Muslim (1881)]


5 - TO LESSEN THE POPULATION OF THE KUFFAR

- We have to do a cull of the kuffar to protect the world.
- The Prophet was reprimanded when he took captives.

It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allah desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise. (Al-Anfal 8:67)

- This is exactly what ISIS is doing.
- No captives.
- They're trying to capture land.

- The food is for mujahideen, not captives.
- When they know that you don't take captives, they will surrender.
- Taking captives is counterproductive.

- If they surrender you accept their tawba.
- Surah Tawba verse 5 is officially the verse of the sword.

Then when the Sacred Months (the Ist, 7th, 11th, and 12th months of the Islamic calendar) have passed, then kill the Mushrikun (see V.2:105) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush. But if they repent and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and give Zakat, then leave their way free. Verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (At-Tawbah 9:5)

- If they make tawba accept their tawba.
- Don't kill them after they make tawba.

- Don't forget when Usama was fighting, he killed a person after he took his shahada.
- The Prophet questioned Usama about this.
- Usama thought the shahada of this person was disingenuous.

Usama ibn Zayd (the Prophet’s adopted grandson) killed an idolater in battle after the the idolater had said: “There is no god but Allah” (la ilaha illallah). When news of this reached Allah’s Messenger, he condemned Usama in the strongest terms and he said to him: “How can you kill him after he said La ilaha illallah?” He replied: “But he said it with the sword hanging over his head-” The Prophet said again: “How can you kill him after he said La ilaha illallah?” He replied: “O Messenger of Allah, he said it in dissimulation (taqiyyatan).” The Prophet said: “Did you split his heart open (to see)?” and he did not cease to reprove him until Usama wished that he had not entered Islam until after he had killed that man so that he might have been forgiven all his past sins through belief.  [Bukhari, Muslim, Ahmad, Tayalisi, Abu Dawud, Nasa'i, al-`Adni, Abu `Awana, al-Tahawi, al-Hakim, and Bayhaqi]

- The religion of shiites is deception.
- They do taqiyya.

So, when you meet (in fight Jihad in Allah's Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives). (Muhammad 47:4)

- Hitler did a cull.
- He killed 20 million kuffar.

ISIS jihadists demolish mosques, shrines in northern Iraq (PHOTOS)

- ISIS didn't destroy mosques, they destroyed Sufi temples.
- They don't fulfil the conditions of a mosque.
- They are temples like Hindu temples and Sikh temples.

- Don't say ISIS kills Muslims.
- Shias aren't Muslims.
- They are the worst kaafirs in the world.

Ibn Hazm — "Shia are not even Muslims", when Christians debating him brought a Shia book as reference.See al-Millal wa al-Nahl الفصل في الملل والنحل 2/213

- What is the madhab of the caliph?
- He's a hanbali.
- Ahmad ibn Hanbal was Iraqi and the Sunnis of Iraq are hanbalis.
- So you have a hanbali caliphate.


6 - TO STRIKE TERROR INTO THE HEARTS OF THE KUFFAR

And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know [but] whom Allah knows. And whatever you spend in the cause of Allah will be fully repaid to you, and you will not be wronged. (Al-Anfal 8:60) Sahih international

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 Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly. (Al-Anfal 8:60) Yusuf Ali

- As soon as Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi announced the caliphate, the hypocrites came out of the woodwork like worms to bad mouth the caliphate.
- Just when you think you are a Muslim, the caliphate exposes you as a low life scum of the earth and a hypocrite.
- The caliphate was a test for you and you failed miserably.
- You are nothing but a hypocrite and a waste of space.

- The scholars who bad mouth the caliphate like Yusuf Qardawi, Abu Qatada and Abu Muhammad al Maqdisi have to publicly make tawba to rescue their character from demolition.
- When Yusuf Qardawi bad mouthed the caliphate, Muslims weren't surprised because he believes in democracy.
- People are surprised at Abu Qatada and Abu Muhammad al Maqdisi.

- Are you a real jihadi or a fake jihadi? Beware.
- If you bad mouth the caliphate you are a fake jihadi.
- You are like a Christian who claims to follow Jesus but walks around with an uncircumcised penis and eats pork.


7 - TO EXPOSE THE HYPOCRITES

- Allah spoke about testing the people to see who is real.

If a wound (and killing) has touched you, be sure a similar wound (and killing) has touched the others. And so are the days (good and not so good), We give to men by turns, that Allah may test those who believe, and that He may take martyrs from among you. And Allah likes not the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong­doers). (Aali Imran 3:140)

- Some people are so evil they smoke marijuana, they cheat on their wives, drink alcohol, etc.
- Darul harb has turned you into low life scums of the earth.
- The only way for you to go to Paradise is to die on the battlefield.
- Europe and America has finished you.

- Allah gives the sweetness of victory and the bitterness of defeat to men in turns.

Those who believe say: "Why is not a Surah (chapter of the Qur'an) sent down (for us)? But when a decisive Surah (explaining and ordering things) is sent down, and fighting (Jihad ­ holy fighting in Allah's Cause) is mentioned (i.e. ordained) therein, you will see those in whose hearts is a disease (of hypocrisy) looking at you with a look of one fainting to death. But it was better for them (hypocrites, to listen to Allah and to obey Him). (Muhammad 47:20)

- When fighting is mentioned, the hypocrites look at you as if to say they are going to drop down, faint and die.
- Jihad gives you honour but cowardice gives you dishonour.


8 - JIHAD IS TO CLEANSE THE BELIEVERS OF THEIR SINS

Miqdam ibn Ma’dikarib (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “There are with Allah six blessings for the martyr. [1] He is forgiven with the first drop of blood. [2] He is shown his abode in paradise. [3] He is preserved from the torment of the grave and is safe from the great fear on the Day of Resurrection. [4] A crown of honour ingrained with pearl is placed on his head, which is better than the world and what it contains. [5] He is married to seventy-two maidens (huris) of paradise. [6] His intercession for his seventy relatives is accepted.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/187-188) No. 1663, Musnad Ahmad (4/131) No. 17221, Sunan Ibn Majah (4/82) No. 2799]


9 - TO TRAIN THE BELIEVERS IN REGARDS TO SABR

And certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to As-Sabirin (the patient ones, etc.). Who, when afflicted with calamity, say: "Truly! To Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return." (Al-Baqarah 2:155-156)

- I've seen mujahideen cry when their loved ones die.
- But Allah said give glad tidings to those who have sabr.
- The Prophet cried when Jaafar was killed.
- The Prophet was devastated.

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)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

DARS TWO

8. CLEANSE THE BELIEVERS OF THEIR SINS

Allah makes you sometime experience the bitterness of defeat
- or sweetness of victory to turn some you into shuhada
- by you becoming a shaheed, your sins are forgiven

Miqdam ibn Ma’dikarib (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “There are with Allah six blessings for the martyr. [1] He is forgiven with the first drop of blood. [2] He is shown his abode in paradise. [3] He is preserved from the torment of the grave and is safe from the great fear on the Day of Resurrection. [4] A crown of honour ingrained with pearl is placed on his head, which is better than the world and what it contains. [5] He is married to seventy-two maidens (huris) of paradise. [6] His intercession for his seventy relatives is accepted.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/187-188) No. 1663, Musnad Ahmad (4/131) No. 17221, Sunan Ibn Majah (4/82) No. 2799]

If a wound should touch you - there has already touched the [opposing] people a wound similar to it. And these days [of varying conditions] We alternate among the people so that Allah may make evident those who believe and [may] take to Himself from among you martyrs - and Allah does not like the wrongdoers - (Aali Imran 3:140)

Allah is talking about the sweetness of victory and bitterness of defeat in the above ayah
- some of you have lived a sinful life
- the only way for you to go to paradise is to die on the battlefield


9. TRAIN THE BELIEVERS IN REGARDS TO SABR (PATIENCE)
Patience is to hear and obey the commandment of Allah
- whether we like it or we dislike it; that is patience
- the evidence is: 2:216

Fighting has been enjoined upon you while it is hateful to you. But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not. (Al-Baqarah 2:216)

Even though fighting is difficult, you go to the front line that is patience
- still you hear and obey
- the other evidence is: 8:46

And obey Allah and His Messenger, and do not dispute and [thus] lose courage and [then] your strength would depart; and be patient. Indeed, Allah is with the patient. (Al-Anfal 8:46)

The ayah is talking about patience and obedience to the amir on the battlefield
- Allah is talking also about unity


10. TO REMOVE THE PAIN FROM THE HEART OF THE BELIEVERS
- you are living in a world which your lands are occupied
- your natural resources are plundered by the infidels
- the Islamic scholars are incarcerated or assassinated
- ethnic cleansing is taking place against the Muslims in many countries around the world
- like Burma and CAR
- thousands of Muslim women are being raped in many countries all over the world
- like what took place in Bosnia and Kashmir
- the American army raped Muslim women in Iraq
- the Shia lock-up 1000’s of Sunni girls and raped and impregnated them
- Allah said nothing can heal the pain like what you feel in your bosom, except Jihad fisabillilah
-the evidence is: 9:14-15

Fight them; Allah will punish them by your hands and will disgrace them and give you victory over them and satisfy the breasts of a believing people (At-Tawbah 9:14)And remove the fury in the believers' hearts. And Allah turns in forgiveness to whom He wills; and Allah is Knowing and Wise. (At-Tawbah 9:15)

Allah is giving you some of the aims and objectives of jihad in the above ayah
- when you see the plight of the Ummah and you suffer in your heart,
- Allah says nothing can heal it except for jihad
- because Jihad is used to punish and disgrace the kuffaar


11. TO AQUIRE THE BOOTY

And much war booty which they will take. And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise. (Al-Fath 48:19)

- Allah spoke about the booty in the above ayah. The booty is the spoils of war.

Abu Huraira reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: I have been given superiority over the other prophets in six respects: I have been given words which are concise but comprehensive in meaning; I have been helped by terror (in the hearts of enemies): spoils have been made lawful to me: the earth has been made for me clean and a place of worship; I have been sent to all mankind and the line of prophets is closed with me. [Sahih Muslim (1/371) No. 523]

Ibn Umar narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "I was sent by the sword from now until Judgment Day, until Allah Alone is worshipped with no partners, and my livelihood is in the shadow of my spear, and humiliation and submission are on those who disobey me and whoever imitates a people is one of them" [Musnad Ahmad (2/50) No. 5115, Shu'ab al-Eman al-Bayhaqi (2/417) No. 1154, Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah (4/212) No. 19401]

- All these are evidences; to prove that the booty was made halal for you

al-Shawkani (rh) said: “Ibn Abi Jamrah said: The scholars of hadeeth are of the view that if the primary motive is to make the word of Allah supreme, it does not matter what else is also achieved.” [Nayl al-Awthaar (7/254)]

The above means, if your intention is to use the wealth to spread la ilaha illallah,
-then you allowed to go to the battlefield to get the booty

The battle of Badr started because the prophet (SAW) sent his Sahabas
- to capture the caravan of Abu Sufiyan
- the caravan of Abu Sufiyan was the booty

Ibn Umar narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "I was sent by the sword from now until Judgment Day, until Allah Alone is worshipped with no partners, and my livelihood is in the shadow of my spear, and humiliation and submission are on those who disobey me and whoever imitates a people is one of them" [Musnad Ahmad (2/50) No. 5115, Shu'ab al-Eman al-Bayhaqi (2/417) No. 1154, Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah (4/212) No. 19401]

al-Haafiz Ibn Hajar (rh) said: “This hadeeth indicates that war booty is permissible for this ummah, and that the provision of the Prophet (SAW) has been placed in war booty and not in other kinds of earnings. Hence some of the scholars said that it is the best kind of earnings.” [Fathul Baari (6/98)]

- this fatawa means; the best way to earn a living is from the booty

al-Qurtubi said: “Allah sent provision to His Prophet (SAW) by means of his striving and He made it by means of the best kind of striving which is earning it by means of force and strength.” [Tafseer al-Qurtubi (8/108)]

The Europeans got rich by going to places like Africa and robbing them
- for the diamonds etc
- they went and got the booty by colonising the world
- many Africans speak French
- It's humiliating to see Africans speak French

The bush administration thought they could invade Iraq and steal the oil,
- but they failed
- now the oil is in the hands of the Islamic State


12. TO DISGRACE THE KUFFAAR
- the evidence is: 9:14

Fight them; Allah will punish them by your hands and will disgrace them and give you victory over them and satisfy the breasts of a believing people (At-Tawbah 9:14)

When communism was in its heyday,
- a lot of Muslims in Eastern Europe became communist
- Muslims with the name Muhammad; who is a communist in his heart
- but when the Mujahideen defeated the USSR in Afghanistan
- they gave up communism
- millions of Muslims in Eastern Europe, dumped communism
- socialism was disgraced in Iraq

It is important for you to disgrace kufr
- because if you don't disgrace kufr,
- the weak Muslims will adopt the ideologies of the kuffaar
- today, millions of Muslims in Nigeria, Bangladesh etc, think they are Muslims,
- but they are 5 star kaafirs because they believe in democracy
- also Pakistan, India and Turkey
- even in Egypt, millions there believe in democracy

If you do not disgrace the kuffaar, the weak Muslims will imitate the kuffaar
- because the average Muslim suffers from inferiority complex
- therefore the 12th aim and objective is to disgrace the kuffaar
- like Allah told you in 9:29

Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture - [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled. (At-Tawbah 9:29)


13. TO STRENGTHEN THE ISLAMIC BROTHERHOOD AND ISLAMIC SISTERHOOD
- where do you find brotherhood?

Damrah bin Saeed from his father narrated that some woollen shawls were once brought to Umar Ibn al-Khattab. Amongst them was a very large one of excellent quality. Some people indicated that it was of great value and should be sent to Safiyya bint Ubayd who was recently married to Umar's son Abdullah. However, Umar said, "I shall send it to someone who is more deserving to it, namely Ummu Ammaara Nusayba bint Ka'b about whom I heard the Messenger of Allah (SAW) say, 'Whether it was to the right or to the left, in whichever direction I turned I saw her fighting in my defence."' [Maghazi al-Waqidi (1/271), al-Tabaqaat al-Kubra Ibn Sa’d (8/415), Kanz al-Ummal (13/625-626) No. 37592]

- if you say women cannot go to the battlefield, your knowledge is weak.

…(On that day) [battle of Uhud] I saw 'Aisha, the daughter of Abu Bakr and Um Sulaim both lifting their dresses up so that I was able to see the ornaments of their legs, and they were carrying the water skins of their arms to pour the water into the mouths of the thirsty people and then go back and fill them and come to pour the water into the mouths of the people again. (On that day) Abu Talha's sword fell from his hand twice or thrice. [Sahih Bukhari (5/37) No. 3811]

It was narrated from Anas ibn Malik (RA) that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) used to enter upon Umm Haram bint Milhan and she would give him food. Umm Haram was married to 'Ubaidah ibn al-Samit. One day the Messenger of Allah (SAW) entered upon her, and she provided him with food and started grooming his head. The the Messenger of Allah (SAW) slept, then he woke up smiling. Umm Haram asked, "What is making you smile, O Messenger of Allah?" He said: "Some people of my Ummah were shown to me (in my dream) campaigning for the sake of Allah, sailing in the middle of the sea like kings on thrones." Umm Haram added, "I said, 'O Messenger of Allah! Pray to Allah to make me one of them.'" So the Messenger of Allah (SAW) prayed to Allah for her and then laid his head down (and slept). Then he woke up smiling (again). (Umm Haram added): I said, "What is making you smile, O Messenger of Allah?" He said, "Some people of my Ummah were shown to me (in my dream) campaigning for the sake of Allah." He said the same as he had said before. I said, "O Messenger of Allah! Pray to Allah to make me one of them." He said: "You will be among the first ones." Then Umm Haram sailed across the sea during the time of Mu'awiyah ibn Abi Sufyan, and she fell down from her riding animal after coming ashore, and died. [al-Bukhari (2877) and Muslim (1912)]


Habeeb bin Abi Thaabit narrates that Haarith bin Hishaam, Ikrama bin Abi Jahal and Ayaash bin Rabee'ah (RA) were all fatally wounded during the Battle of Yarmook. When Haarith bin Hishaam asked for some water and was about to drink it, Ikrama looked at him. Haarith said, "Give the water to Ikrama." When Ikrama took the water, Ayaash looked at him. Ikrama therefore asked that the water be given to Ayaash. However, before the water could reach Ayaash he had already passed away. By the time the water reached the others, they had also passed away. [Mustadrak al-Haakim (3/270) No. 5058]

These sahaba, even when they were on the verge of death,
- they would fulfil the needs of their brother before they would fulfil their own needs
- where else in human history can you find such brotherhood? No where


14. TO TOPPLE THE KAAFIR AND APOSTATE LEADERS

On the authority of Ubada bin As-Samit the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “…topple the leader if you see clear kufr...” [al-Bukhari (7056) and Muslim (1709)]

This is because the prophet (SAW) has commanded us
- to topple the leader if you see clear kufr as mentioned in the above hadith
- Riba banks is clear kufr is an example. Also to legalize this and night clubs, etc

Ibn Kathir (rh) said: “So Whosoever abandons the wise Shariah which was revealed upon Muhammad ibn Abdullah, the seal of the prophets, and goes to other abrogated Shariah for judgment, he becomes a Kaafir. So how about the one who goes to al-Yaasiq (man-made law) for judgment and gives it precedence (over the Shariah of Muhammad (SAW). Whosoever does this has become a Kaafir by the Ijma of the Muslims.” [Al-Bidayah Wan-Nihayah, (Vol. 13, p119)]

Ibn Katheer (rh) said: “Thus, it has become in his sons a followed law to which they have been giving precedence over ruling by the book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger (SAW). Whoever does this is a Kaafir who must be fought until he returns to the rule of Allah and His Messenger. So no one other than He should rule neither minorly or majorly." [Tafseer Ibn Katheer (3/131)]

...And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed - then it is those who are the disbelievers. (Al-Ma’idah 5:44)

Ibn Mas'ud was asked (by the people of Iraq), What is rashwa (taking bribes)? He replied, "This is suht (unlawful earning)." They said, "No, we meant in ruling." He then said, "This is the very kufr." Then he recited: "...And whosoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed, such are the Kafirun." (Al-Ma'idah 5:44) [Tafsir al-Tabari (10/321) No. 11960, Tafsir Ibn Kathir (3/119)]

The above hujja prove that Allah has made takfir
- on those who govern other than what He has revealed
- and the prophet (SAW) told us to topple the leader if we see clear kufr


15. TO PROTECT THE LIVES AND HONOR OF THE SINCERE SCHOLARS

On the authority of Abu Darda the Messenger of Allah said: “…Verily the scholars are the heirs to the Prophets. Verily, the Prophets did not bequeath deenars or dirhams. All they left behind was knowledge, so whoever takes it, has indeed acquired a huge fortune.” [Musnad Ahmad (5/196) No. 21763; Also related by Abu Dawud (2/341) No. 3641; at-Tirmidhi (5/48) No. 2682; Ibn Majah (1/150) No. 223, ad-Daarimee (1/110) No. 342 and ibn Hibbaan (1/289) No. 88]

The Prophet (SAW) told us that the scholars are the inheritors of the
Prophets
- and the prophets suffered incarceration and even murder
- therefore we need to do jihad to protect our scholars

...But is it [not] that every time a messenger came to you, [O Children of Israel], with what your souls did not desire, you were arrogant? And a party [of messengers] you denied and another party you killed. (Al-Baqarah 2:87)

Evidence is in 2:87 above
- this is talking about how the Jews killed prophets
- if people can kill prophets, they will kill scholars as well
- because a prophet is above a scholar
- Abu Hanifa died in prison, he was poisoned
- Ibn Taymiyyah died in prison
- Adnan Mandares was publically hanged in Turkey
- because he said we need to do the Adhan in Arabic
- Adnan Mandares was a scholar
- after they killed him, they named an airport in his name because of their guilt

Your scholars need protection; so that they can speak the truth
- the only crime Adnan Mandares did was say the adhaan should be in Arabic

Ibn Abbas (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Verily the most painful punishment on the Day of Judgment are those who kill the prophets or people murdered by the prophet or kill one of his parents, and making statues and knowledgeable people who do not benefit from his knowledge." [related by Bayhaqi in 'Shu'ab al-Iman' (10/288) No. 7504]


16. TO FREE THE MUSLIM CAPTIVES

Ibn Nuhaas transmits from An-Nawawi in Ar-Raudah: “If the enemy capture a Muslim or two, then is it equivalent to invading a Muslim land? There are two opinions on this. The first opinion is no, because the troubling of one Muslim soldier is insignificant. The more correct and other opinion of the two is yes, because the sanctity of a single Muslim is greater than the sanctity of an entire state.” [Mashari Al-Ashwaq ila Masari' Al-Ushaq (2/838)]

- to free the Muslim captives is fard al-kifayah
- to free the captives is one of the ways to come closer to Allah

Sheikh-ul-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah said: “Freeing the prisoners is one of the greatest compulsory deeds and spending ransom money and other means towards that, is one of the greatest ways to come close to Allah.” [Al-Fatawa (28/635)]

The first thing the Islamic State did when they took over Mosul,
- was free the captives

Ibn Hajar Al-Asqalani said: “The saying of Imam Al-Bukhari, 'The Chapter on Freeing Prisoners' refers to freeing them from the hands of the enemy by money or by other means. The word 'Al-Fakak', where the fa (Arabic letter) from the word has a fatha (it is also permissible for it to take a kasrah), means to free. This word is mentioned in two hadiths. The first one is the hadith of Abu Musa: "Free the prisoner." Ibn Battal said that freeing the prisoners is compulsory on a collective duty (Fard Kifayah). This opinion is also held by the majority of the scholars.” [Fath Al-Bari (6/167)]

It is compulsory to free the captives
- even when they say "we will never negotiate with terrorist",
- they quickly set the captives free
- when you capture them, they set your captives free

Imam ibn Athir records in ‘Kamil’ the famous story of a Muslim woman who was captured by the Romans and held in a place named ‘Amuriyyah. Not content with only capturing her they tried to dishonour her as well. Frightened and alone she called out the name of the Caliph, “[Ya Mu’tasim] Oh Mu’tasim.” A man witnessed this incident and rushed to the Caliph informing him of what had happened. When he heard the plight of this woman he responded bravely, “Labbaik [I am here at your call].” He prepared a large army and set off for battle and to rescue the woman. Mu’tasim’s army conquered the enemy and entered ‘Amuriyyah. After destroying the enemy stronghold, they came to the to the woman and freed her. [al-Kamil fi at-Tareekh (6/38)]

17. TO PROTECT THE HOLY PLACES OF ISLAM
- the Hindus demolished Babri masjid out of hatred for Islam

[They are] those who have been evicted from their homes without right - only because they say, "Our Lord is Allah." And were it not that Allah checks the people, some by means of others, there would have been demolished monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques in which the name of Allah is much mentioned. And Allah will surely support those who support Him. Indeed, Allah is Powerful and Exalted in Might. (Al-Hajj 22:40)

The Jews want to tear down Masjid al-Aqsa
- to build in its place the kingdom of Solomon
- to receive the Dajjal - their king


18. TO PUNISH THE KUFFAAR FOR BREAKING THE COVENANT WITH THE MUSLIMS

And if they break their oaths after their treaty and defame your religion, then fight the leaders of disbelief, for indeed, there are no oaths [sacred] to them; [fight them that] they might cease. (At-Tawbah 9:12)

When Quraish broke the covenant of hudaibiyyah,
- the Prophet responded swiftly, by conquering Makkah


19. TO TEACH THE MUSLIMS UNITY

And obey Allah and His Messenger, and do not dispute and [thus] lose courage and [then] your strength would depart; and be patient. Indeed, Allah is with the patient. (Al-Anfal 8:46)

In the above mentioned ayah,
- Allah commanded us to obey authority to be united and to have sabr

And Allah told us, in 9:47, not to take troublemakers with us on the battlefield
- troublemakers are called mutineers

Had they gone forth with you, they would not have increased you except in confusion, and they would have been active among you, seeking [to cause] you fitnah. And among you are avid listeners to them. And Allah is Knowing of the wrongdoers. (At-Tawbah 9:47)

If you take the mutineers with you, they will only cause disorder
- and some of the mujahideen will listen to them
- I put it to you, that the 19th aim and objective of jihad is to teach unity
to the ummah


20. TO ANNIHILATE THE MUNAFIQEEN

O Prophet, fight against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be harsh upon them. And their refuge is Hell, and wretched is the destination. (At-Tawbah 9:73)

In the above mentioned ayah,
- Allah commanded us to wage war against the munafiqeen
- and we should be harsh with them

When Abu Bakr as-Saddiq was the caliph,
- some they prayed but they refused to pay zakat
- they were hypocrites so they were killed
- and their women were taken as concubines

Abu Hurairah (RA) reported: When the Messenger of Allah (SAW) passed away, Abu Bakr (RA) was appointed as his successor (caliph). Amongst the Arabs some men apostatised. Abu Bakr (RA) resolved to fight them. 'Umar bin Al-Khattab (RA) said to Abu Bakr: "How can you fight them when the Messenger of Allah (SAW) has declared: 'I have been commanded to fight people till they testify La ilaha illallah (there is no true god except Allah); and if they do it, their blood (life) and property are secured except when justified by law, and it is for Allah to call them to account." Upon this Abu Bakr (RA) said: "By Allah, I would definitely fight him who makes distinction between Salat and the Zakat, because it is an obligation upon the rich to pay Zakat. By Allah I will fight them even to secure the piece of rope which they used to give to the Messenger of Allah (SAW)." 'Umar (RA) said: "I realized that Allah opened the heart of Abu Bakr (RA) for fighting those who refused to pay Zakat, and I fully recognized that Abu Bakr was on the truth." [al-Bukhari (1399, 1400) and Muslim (20)]

They were killed because they pick and choose what they wanted
- you cannot pick and choose what part of Islam you want to practice
- because Allah says, enter into Islam wholeheartedly (2:208)

O you who have believed, enter into Islam completely [and perfectly] and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy. (Al-Baqarah 2:208)

And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know [but] whom Allah knows. And whatever you spend in the cause of Allah will be fully repaid to you, and you will not be wronged. (Al-Anfal 8:60)

Allah says there are other enemies you don't know, but Allah knows
- others whom you do not know, they are the hypocrites


21. TO INCULCATE IN THE BELIEVERS THE SPIRIT OF SACRIFICE
- the evidence is what Allah says in 9:24 below

Say, [O Muhammad], "If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your relatives, wealth which you have obtained, commerce wherein you fear decline, and dwellings with which you are pleased are more beloved to you than Allah and His Messenger and jihad in His cause, then wait until Allah executes His command. And Allah does not guide the defiantly disobedient people." (At-Tawbah 9:24)

- the second evidence is 9:111

Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties [in exchange] for that they will have Paradise. They fight in the cause of Allah, so they kill and are killed. [It is] a true promise [binding] upon Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the Qur'an. And who is truer to his covenant than Allah? So rejoice in your transaction which you have contracted. And it is that which is the great attainment. (At-Tawbah 9:111)

- the purpose of jihad, is to inculcate in the believers the spirit of sacrifice
