In the Name of Allah Most Merciful Most Beneficent:
Peace and Blessings of Allah be up on Prophet Muhammad and his noble Family and his noble Companions,ameen.
An Inspiration was coming to me to explain Jihad, to explain “Gospel Of Jesus (Peace be up on him) and to explain “Paganism” and something else which I cannot remember now!.
So Insha Allah let me explain Jihad today.
ON JIHAD (HOLY WAR):
JIHAD ACCORDING TO TRADITIONAL SUNNI IMAMS-THE GOOD SERVANTS OF ALLAH-THE BEST MUSLIMS- PIOUS MUSLIMS:
ACCORDING TO MUSLIM MYSTICS AND THEIR BEST FOLLOWERS
Jihad (Struggle,Strive,revolution,War etc) is an “Act of Struggle” against Evils in society in order to establish Moral,Religious and Justice for oneself or for all people”.
When Jihad is done for one self, it means “struggle against one’s own evil desires and immoral character and behaviour which prevent him from obeying God!.
For great Saints, Jihad is to purify their Body,Mind and Soul from everything except “ALLAH S.W.T Al-Malik Al-Quddus.
To make God-The King of Kings prevail in their Body,Mind and Soul and Purify them with the attribute of Al-Qudus (The Holy).
Allah S.W.T Says about such Saints in the Tongue of Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of Allah be up on him):
On the authority of Abu Hurairah, who said: the messenger of Allah said: Allah the Almighty has said: “Who soever shows enmity to a friend of Mine, I shall be at war with him. My servant does not draw near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have imposed upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it.”
related by Bukhari.
Only Such Awliya Allah (Great Saints) must be followed!. If you follow lower level people, you will be misguided and you will misguide and destroy others too!.
So follow Awliya Allah (Ulool Ilm,Ulool Amru and guard yourself from misguidance
Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu): “The Messenger of Allah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: ‘The Jews separated into 71 sects, and the Christians into 72, and my nation will divide into 73 sects.’” (Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah)
The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: “Seventy-two (of the 73 sects of the Muslim nation) will be in the fire, and only one will be in Paradise; it is the Jama’ah (i.e. Ahle Sunnah WA Jamaah).”
(Abi Dawud, Ad-Darimi, Ahmad)
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN JIHAD (STRIVING IN GOD’S CAUSE) AND MALHABA (BATTLES):
All battles are not Jihad (struggle in the God’s Way), everything that is happening labelled as Jihad today is not Jihad!, because it is filled with tyranny oppression and injustice! And this fake Jihaad of today is carried out not for the cause of Islam, but for the cause of hypocrisy! (such as Nationalism, Democracy, sectarian conflicts etc). Islam advocate universal humanity and single brotherhood, and there is no place in Islam for nationalism, democracy , tribalism and sectarianism, people who call their conflict to establish this things as Jihad for a vain reason, and God Will defeat their lie , at the hands of their enemies, for certain their Jihad will never succeed!
SO BEWARE OF IMPURE PEOPLE WHO CALL YOU TO KILL OTHER PEOPLE!!!
Allah sayings in Quran what is True Jihad is: surat Ash-Shams, (Verses 9&10), what can be translated as, “Indeed he succeeds who Zak-Kaha purifies his ownself, and indeed he fails who Das-Saha corrupts his ownself.”
Worldly Jihad is fought against Mankind for worldly reason!. The real Mujahid (the Warrior) is the one who struggle to purify himself!.
Why Most present day Mujahideens (fake warriors) are defeated ?
Because they have not purified their heart nor they have never struggled to strive to purify themselves!. They are taking weapons against others without correcting their own hearts first!. Such Wars are defeated by Allah!. Also war fought without obeying Allah ,His Prophet (S.A.W) and those who are in authority (Ulool amri-4:59)!!!.
Present day Mujahideen are fake!. They are not following Major body of Muslims or their Imams!!!. They do not struggle to purify themselves or to bring them Imam (caliph) of Muslims back!. But they are fighting for their own ego!!!. Then how can they become true victorious!?
Allah (S.W.T) also said in surat Al-A’la, (Verse 14), what can be translated as, ” Indeed whosoever purifies himself shall achieve success.”
So how can those people be true Mujahideen or True Jihadis when their aim is totally wrong, but to Kill innocent people, women and children?, how can they succeed while they are corrupt?
Quran Chapter, 2, surat Al-Baqarah, (Verse 151), what can be translated as, “Similarly We have sent (Muhammad) of your own, reciting to you Our verses and sanctifying you, and teaching you the book and Al-Hikmah…”
Chapter 3 also Allah (S.W.T) says in surat Al-Emran, (Verse 164), what can be translated as, “Indeed Allah conferred a great favor on the believers when He sent among them a messenger from among themselves, reciting unto them His verses, and purifying them …
surat Al-Fath, (Verse 4), what can be translated as, “He it is Who sent down As-Sakinah (tranquility) into the hearts of the believers.”
Prophet Muhammad is “Rahmatan lil Alameen”-Mercy to the Whole World
Some fools in Islam want to say Prophet Muhammad was!!!!, such nonsense people are those who making Fitna (tribulations) and serving Satan!
He (Prophet S.A.W) is not “Rahmatan lil Muslimeen-Mercy to the Muslim believers only!!!, but Mercy to the Whole World!. Mercy to Muslim,Christian,Jew,Farsi,Atheists,Pagans etc!.
His (S.A.W) Mercy brought all of them to the Best Morals and Practises , Muslim as well as Jew sought help and legal verdict from him!.
Allah says that The True Struggle (Jihad) one must do in his life is not to kill his neighbour Jew or Christians, but to clean one’s own self and to punish one’s own self for that evil he or she did!!!
When I caught an evil thought, I slap my face three times so hard!. Because I feared Allah and Punished me myself, before Allah punish!, and to seek forgiveness!
Quran 17:surat Al-Esra’, (Verse 82), what can be translated as, “And We send down from the Qur’an that which is a healing and a mercy to those who believe…”
Allah (S.W.T) also said in surat Yunus, (Verse 57), what can be translated as, “…There has come to you a good advice from your Lord (the Qur’an) and a healing for that in your breasts (the heart)…”
IF YOU ARE NOT AWLIYA ALLAH (SAINTS OF ALLAH) THEN HOW CAN YOU HAVE CLEAR VISION AND UNDERSTANDING OF OTHER’S HEART WHILE YOU ARE STILL LIVING WITH AN IMPURE HEART?, AND HOW DARE YOU ATTACK PEOPLE ACCUSING THEM SHIRK,DISBELIEF AND BiD’AH?
PROPHET SAYS: “Beware of the Gaze of a True Believer,for he sees with the Light of Allah”.
The above mentioned hadith Qudusi: “I will become his hand which he strikes, I will become his eye which he sees……”
also must read together!.
Allah says about such egoistic people with in Islam , who spread mischief on earth!.
Allah says about them: “Have you seen those who have taken their Ego as thei Lord, will you them find someone to guide him???” (Sura Al Kahf)
Allah says to be in the best manner when speak to the people of the Book-Ahlul Kitaab (Christians and Jews)
•And do not dispute with the followers of the Book except by what is best, except those of them who act unjustly, and say: We believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you, and our God and your God is One, and to Him do we submit. [Quran 29:46]
•Not all of them are alike; a party of the people of the Scripture stand for the right, they recite the Verses of God during the hours of the night, prostrating themselves in prayer. They believe in God and the Last Day; they enjoin Al-Ma’rûf and forbid Al-Munkar ; and they hasten in (all) good works; and they are among the righteous. And whatever good they do, nothing will be rejected of them; for God knows well those who are Al-Muttaqûn .(Quran 3:113-115)
•And there are, certainly, among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), those who believe in God and in that which has been revealed to you, and in that which has been revealed to them, humbling themselves before God. They do not sell the Verses of God for a little price, for them is a reward with their Lord. Surely, God is Swift in account. ‘(3:199)’
•Verily! Those who believe and those who are Jews and Christians, and Sabians, whoever believes in God and the Last Day and do righteous good deeds shall have their reward with their Lord, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve . [Quran 2:62]
•Say (O Muhammad ): “O people of the Scripture : Come to a word that is just between us and you, that we worship none but God, and that we associate no partners with Him, and that none of us shall take others as lords besides God. [Quran 3:64]
CALL FOR JIHAD IN BIBLE AND HINDU SCRIPTURES:
Jihad as a war fought to establish religious and moral life as well as to stop oppression and injustice in society, and for nothing else!!!.
Bible and Hindu Scriptures calling for war or to establish “Dharma” (Religious Moral life).
JIHAD IN BIBLE:
Do not think that I came to bring peace on Earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I came to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man’s enemies will be the members of his household. He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me. He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it.
Parallels in the Gospel of Luke (12:49–53,14:25–33)
The Bible extensively speak about Holy War, especially in the Old Testament, see the Book “Joshua” “Deuteronomy” etc . Christians try to say that Jesus is Love and he did not go for war , he did not kill anyone and so on. Because it is how you fish new followers into the Christian faith!. On the contrary to this Christian claims, New Testament (Christian) Bible testifies that when Christ return in the second coming he will wage ultimate war against hypocrites and unbelievers, even against Christians who do not obey his commands but initiate their own Church doctrines!
see Matthew 7 NIV
True and False Disciples
21“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
Matthew 13: 41 The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil.42 They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Matthew 24: 48 But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’49 and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards.50 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of.51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
YOU ATTAIN SALVATION THROUGH YOUR OWN EFFORT, NOT AS A FEE GIFT:
Luke 13: NIV
24“Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to.25 Once the owner of the house gets up and closes the door, you will stand outside knocking and pleading, ‘Sir, open the door for us.’
“But he will answer, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from.’
26“Then you will say, ‘We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.’
27“But he will reply, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from. Away from me, all you evildoers!’
28“There will be weeping there, and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but you yourselves thrown out
2 Thessalonians 2:8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will kill with the breath of his mouth and bring to nothing by the appearance of his coming.
LAWS AND ETHICS OF JIHAD IS TAUGHT BY THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH-PROPHET MUHAMMAD (S.A.W)
But Gospel never teach the rules of Jihad (Moral War), but Jesus (Peace be up on him) give glad tidings for his followers that “The Spirit of the Truth (Visha Prana/Paramathma-Bhagavath Gita) will come and He (Prophet Muhammad-Spirit of the Truth) will Teach you all that which you cannot bear now!.
Bible Says: John 16:7 King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
8: And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
10-Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
12:I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
13:Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
SURA 97. Qadr, or The Night of Power (or Honor)
1. We have indeed revealed this [Message] in the Night of Power:
2. And what will explain to thee what the night of power is?
3. The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.
4. Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by Allah’s permission, on every
5. Peace! … This until the rise of morn!
Bible Says:John16: King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.) continuing:
14:He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you.
15:All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew itunto you.
16:A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.
WHAT QURAN RULES THE ETHICS AND LAWS OF JIHAD?:
Islam (Quran and Traditions of Prophet rules the law and ethics of Jihad than any other religions!.
-Women,Children,Old age shall not be killed.
“Fight in the cause of God against those who fight you, but do not transgress limits. God does not love transgressors.” Quran 2:1
“If anyone killed a person – unless it was for murder or for spreading mischief in the land – it would be as if he killed the whole people” Quran 5:32
“The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom” Quran 5:33
The conduct of war:
Islam bans the killing of non-combatants (Quran 2:190 above), or of a combatant who has been captured.
Muslims are forbidden from attacking wounded soldiers (unless the wounded person is still fighting).
The Prophet’s (pbuh) view of non-combatants is shown by a Hadith in which Muhammad (pbuh) sees a woman killed in the battlefield and condemns the action.
When an enemy is defeated he should be made prisoner rather than be killed:
“So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make (them) prisoners, and afterwards either set them free as a favour or let them ransom (themselves) until the war terminates.” Quran 47:
Abu Bakr (the First Caliph) gave these rules to an army he was sending to battle:
•“Do not commit treachery or deviate from the right path.
•“You must not mutilate dead bodies.
•“Neither kill a child, nor a woman, nor an aged man.
•“Bring no harm to the trees, nor burn them with fire, especially those which are fruitful.
•“Slay not any of the enemy’s flock, save for your food.
•“You are likely to pass by people who have devoted their lives to monastic services; leave them alone”
Fight in the way of Allah against those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Lo! Allah loveth not aggressors.” Quran 2: 190
“Therefore if they withdraw from you but fight you not, and (instead) send you (Guarantees of) peace, then Allah Hath opened no way for you (to war against them).” Quran 4: 90
“But if the enemy incline towards peace, do thou (also) incline towards peace, and trust in Allah: for He is One that heareth and knoweth (all things).” Quran 8: 61
AND QURAN AND BIBLE SAYS SUCH RIGHTEOUS SERVANTS SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH!!!
Before this We wrote in the Psalms, after the Message (given to Moses): My servants the righteous, shall inherit the earth.”
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.nearly more than a thousand year since the advent of Islamic Caliphate
Nearly 1400 years, since the advent of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W), Muslims inherited the earth, especially the lands which is mentioned in Torah and Gospel!. It is only in 1920s after the Caliphate was abolished as Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be up on him) that Tyrants will come and divide nations and spread mischief on earth! And Imam mahdi and Isa (Jesus) alaihissalam will come in the near future to establish the Caliphate and to make Islam prevail over the world!
It is clear from Historical Fact that True Christians never inherited any Earth!, It was and it is Islam only who inherited all the holy lands and all that parts of the world which bible talking about!. Those people who colonies the world cannot be called as “Blessed Meek” and All the biblical lands are inherited by Muslims alone!. Present day Israel is even not belongs to Christians!. This is clear evidence that Prophet Muhammad (Spirit of the Truth) is the successor of Jesus (Peace be up on him).
And Insha Allah, again under the banner of Imam Mahdi (alaihissalam), Muslims are going to inherit all that holy lands and whole earth and then the coming of Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) before the end of the world!
JIHAD IN HINDU SCRIPTURES:
Hindu scripture approach Jihad somewhat Islamic way!. They emphasize having a Jihad lead by an Imam (Religious/spiritual head). Normally the Imam is depicted in Hindu Scriptures as “Incarnation of God!”Chapter 4. Transcendental Knowledge
Sri Krishna (The Spiritual Leader-Imaam) leads his disciple Arjun in the Mahabaratha War against his (Arjuna’s) own corrupted relatives!!!
yada yada hi dharmasya
glanir bhavati bharata
tadatmanam srjamy aham
yada–whenever; yada–wherever; hi–certainly;dharmasya–of religion; glanih–discrepancies; bhavati–manifested, becomes; bharata–O descendant of Bharata; abhyutthanam–predominance; adharmasya–of irreligion; tada–at that time; atmanam–self; srjami–manifest; aham–I.
Whenever and wherever there is a decline in religious practice, O descendant of Bharata, and a predominant rise of irreligion–at that time I descend Myself.
“Paritranaya sadhunam vinashaya cha dushkritam.
Dharma sansthapanarthaya sambhavami yuge yuge…” these lines from Bhagavad Gita.. that loosely translate as
“For the upliftment of the good and virtuous,
For the destruction of evil,
For the re-establishment of the natural law,
I will come, in every age”…..
This incarnations might be some Prophets or Saints, later considered as incarnations of God!
In Hindu Scripture War against evil is known as “Deva-Asura War”!
Deva means Heavenly people and Asura means Earthly people
The Attributes of Deva and Asura is widely explained in a chapter in Bhagavath Gita named: Daivasurasambadvdya Yoga”, I do not remember the chapter number now!.
The Hindu Sacred Book, Bhagavath Gita itself is a Spiritual Book teaching about how to defeat evil, worship ONE TRUE GOD-WHO NEITHER BORN NOR BEGOTTEN!.. The verses in Bhagavth Gita indicates the Fight against Evil in the Battle field Kuru Kshetra!!
tIn another meaning the word “Khetra” refer to the Temple, worship place!. The heart is where the God’s Throne is (Hadith). Prophet (S.A.W) says “Nothing can bear the Throne of God except the Heart of a True Believer-The one who purified his heart!
ON FAKE MUJAHIDEEN (FALSE WARRIORS IN THE NAME OF ISLAM)
Those who fool themselves and people and say that we are Mujahideen fighting for Pro-democracy and freedom!. Islam is Submission to God Alone, to follow Shari’ah and Sunnah (Traditions of Prophet)
Are you hiding your face from public not to identify you and calling yourself as “Mujahid(Warrior) in the Way of Allah”? and you calling yourself warrior of Allah?
FALSE JIHAD IS A WRONG DEED,HIDING FACE, NOT PROUD,PROPHET SAYS:
On the authority of Al-Nawwas bin Samaan, that the prophet said: “Righteousness is good morality, and wrongdoing is that which wavers in your soul and which you dislike people finding out about.” related by Muslim.
Shame no you people!.
Prophet saying about such hidden people whose aim is worldly,egoistic/materialistic!!!
From 40 Hadith Qudusi-Number 26: On the authority of Al-Nawwas bin Samaan, that the prophet said:
“Righteousness is good morality, and wrongdoing is that which wavers in your soul and which you dislike people finding out about.” related by Muslim.
The Sahaba and righteous Muslims were proud in what they doing (in Jihad). They did not hide their face in the battle field!!!. What kind of Jihad is that you change your name and hide your face and call it Struggle in the Way of Allah?
Have you no sense? (Quran-Al Bakara),
“Do you command other people righteousness and forget your own selves.” (2:44)
Enjoin you Al-Birr (piety and righteousness and each and every act of obedience to Allah) on the people and you forget (to practise it) yourselves, while you recite the Scripture [the Taurat (Torah)]! Have you then no sense? (Quran 2:44)
Have you no shame? (hadith)
Uqbah bin Amre Al-Ansari narrated that the messenger of Allah said : ”Among the words people obtained from the First
Prophecy are : If you feel no shame, then do as you wish.”
It was related by Bukhari.
Are you going to punish people for their wrong deeds while you are yourself a wrong doer and not punishing your own self first?
So, in total Jihad means to “struggle to purify”.
After the Badr war, Prophet (S.A.W) command his followers to prepare for greatest Jihad. They asked what is that Jihad Oh Prophet of Allah?
He (Peace be up on him) replied: “It is Jihad against own ego”
“Satan reach in Human body part where his blood reach” Hadith!
So Jihad is to purify and exhale Satan and Inhale God in to every cells!
Jihad may be to purify one’s Heart or to Purify the Society!.
Banning of Alcohol/Cigars etc are Jihad from government to purify the society!.
my advise to fellow Muslims is Do not get fooled by false Jihadis!!!
My advise to non-Muslim brothers is, Do not learn Islam from corrupted people (Worldly Materialistic People!, but learn from Awliya Allah (Saints of Allah)
There is no Jihad without Imam of Muslims!.
Prophet (S.A.W) said “whoever dies without an Imam, dies the death of Jahiliya (Pre-Islamic period of Ignorance)”- Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal
Even Jihad- struggle for Purification of Heart also need Imam-Shaykh/Murshid, Spiritual helper (17:80)
