Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani rahimahu Llah-
Some 500 people on Monday staged a silent protest in Tokyo against the bloodshed in Gaza, the biggest such gathering in the Japanese capital since the violence began early this month.
This is such a beautiful present masha’Allah! Perfect for graduation!

You not only taught us half of our deen, but also taught us how anyone can make a mistake; but the way you regretted your mistakes, that just made you more noble and made us realize how to ask God for forgiveness.

Walaikum Assalaam Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu,
In the linguistic sense, the Arabic word “jihad" means struggling or striving and applies to any effort exerted by anyone. In a religious sense, as described by the Quran and teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), "jihad" has many meanings. It can refer to internal as well as external efforts to be a good Muslims or believer, as well as working to inform people about the faith of Islam.
Imaam ibn al-Qayyim said in his book Madaarij us-Salikeen: “Jihad is of four main types (that are to be divided into sub-catagories):
1.. Jihad an-Nafs (one’s own self)
2.. Jihad ash-Shaytaan (Satan)
3.. Jihad al-Kuffar (the Rejecters of Faith) and al-Munafiqeen (the hypocrites)
4.. Jihad ahlu (the people of) ath-Dhulm (injustice), al-Bid’ah (innovation) and al-Munkaraat (sin and evil)”
Jihad an-Nafs (one’s striving against his desires) is also four types:
1. Firstly: Striving hard to learn the true guidance and the religion of truth, meaning Islamic Monotheism (Tawheed), without which the soul will have no success or happiness in this life or the Last Life. When the Nafs (soul) does not acquire knowledge of the religion, it will be miserable in both places of dwelling (this life and the next).
2. Secondly: One’s striving hard to implement what he has learnt. Knowledge without implementation will not be beneficial and may even bring about harm.
3. Thirdly: Striving to deliver the Message and teach it to those who do not have knowledge of it. Otherwise one will be among those who hide the Guidance and the Clear Proofs that Allah has sent down. Such are those whose knowledge will neither bring about benefit to them nor safety from Allah’s punishment.
4. Fourthly: Striving to be patient in the face of hardships of conducting Da’wah (inviting mankind) unto Allah, while disregarding the threat of being harmed by other people and the enemies of Islam, all the while striving to endure all these difficulties.”
Imaam ibn al-Qayyim said in his book Madaarij us-Salikeen: “There are two types of Jihad ash-Shaytaan (Satan):
1. First: Jihad against him to disregard the misgivings and doubts he raises to invalidate Imaan (faith).
2. Second: Jihad against him by ignoring what he tempts one with erroneous intentions and desires. Achieving certainty (concerning Faith) comes after practicing the first type of this Jihad, while successfully observing patience is the result of practicing the second type. Allah says what means:
We made from among them leaders guiding by Our command when they were patient and certain of Our signs.
Surah As-Sajda 32:24
Verse regarding Jihad ash-Shaytaan:
“Surely, Shaytaan is an enemy to you, so treat his as an enemy” [35:6]
The Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) said: “The example of the Mujahid (who performs Jihad) in the Cause of Allah, and only Allah knows who is truly performing Jihad in His Cause, is the example of he who is both a Saa’im (fasting) and a Qaa’im (standing up in voluntary prayers).” [Al-Bukhari
Imaam ibn al-Qayyim said in his book Madaarij us-Salikeen: “As for Jihad al-Kuffar wal-Munafiqeen, they are also four types:
1. with the heart,
3. wealth and
4. one’s self (body).
Jihad al-Kuffar is usually practiced with the hand, while Jihad al-Munafiqeen is usually practiced by the tongue (by refuting them and exposing their misguided ways, etc.)”
What is a Kafir?
A person who does not exercise his faculties of reason, intellect, and intuition to recognise his Lord and Creator and misuses his freedom of choice by choosing to deny God. Such a person becomes a rejector of Faith - in the language of Islam, a kaafir. Kufr literally means ‘to cover’ or ‘to conceal’. The person who denies God is called a kaafir (concealor) because he conceals by his disbelief what is in his nature and soul - because his nature and soul is instinctively to submit to God. His whole body, every limb, bone, cell submits to the Will of God - fulfilling the duty that has been assigned to it. But for this person, his own nature has become concealed from his eyes and he thinks and acts in total disregard of it.
Do Muslims seek to Kill those who are not Muslim?
Chapter 60 Verses 7-9
Perhaps Allah will make friendship between you and those whom you hold as enemies. And Allah has power (over all things), and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (60:7)
Allah does not forbid you to deal justly and kindly with those who fought not against you on account of religion and did not drive you out of your homes. Verily, Allah loves those who deal with equity. (60:8)
It is only as regards those who fought against you on account of religion, and have driven you out of your homes, and helped to drive you out, that Allah forbids you to befriend them. And whosoever will befriend them, then such are the Zalimun (wrong-doers those who disobey Allah). (60:9)
Some verses regarding Jihad al-Kuffar wal-Munafiqeen:
"But strive hard against them (ie. the Kuffar), (by preaching to them the Quran) with the utmost endeavor, with it (i.e. the Qur’an)" [25:52]
"O Prophet! Perform Jihad against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be severe against them" [66:9]
“O you who believe! What is the matter with you, that, when you are asked to go forth in the Cause of Allah, you cling heavily to the earth? Do you prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter” [at-Tauba 9:38]
”…We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul - unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land - it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And, whoever saves one, it is as if he had saved mankind entirely." [Qur’an, 5:32]
“And fight, in the path of Allah, those who fight you…" [Qur’an, 2:190]
“Among mankind is he whose speech impresses you in worldly life, and he calls Allah to witness as to what is in his heart, yet he is the fiercest of opponents. And, when he goes away, he strives throughout the land to cause corruption therein, and to destroy crops and lives. And Allah does not love corruption." [Qur’an, 2:204-5]
Ibn `Abbas says: The Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him), when dispatching his troops, would tell them, "….Do not behave treacherously, nor misappropriate war-booty, nor mutilate [those whom you kill], nor kill children, Do not kill a child, nor a woman, nor an old man, nor obliterate a stream, nor cut a tree.” Bukhari, Muslim, Ahmed
Jihad Against those who Practice Injustice, Innovations and Sin
Imaam ibn al-Qayyim said in his book Madaarij us-Salikeen: “There are three types of this Jihad.
1. First, with the hand, when able to do so.
2. But when one is unable, then he should revert to Jihad with the tongue,
3. and if again unable, then with the heart.”
Some Ahaadeeth regarding this type of Jihad
Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: “He amongst you who witnesses an evil, let him change (remove, stop) it with his hand. If unable, then with his tongue, and if unable, then with his heart, and this indeed is the weakest Imaan.” [Muslim]
Imaam ibn al-Qayyim says, “These are thirteen types of Jihad, and he who dies without performing in Jihad or encouraging himself to perform Jihad, will die on a way (method, part, manner etc) of hypocrisy”
I hope it clear all your points in shaa Allah. May Allah guide us all to the straight path.
Back in action. For how long? Only Allah (SWT) knows. #syria #mujahideen #jihad
