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!

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
Oh yeah, maybe a lot of you now are thinking why such words are written above.
Like we all know, who would want to race with an injured horse, right? That’s gonna make you definitely lose.
Subhan’Allaah, it looks so simply but there are things that are laid infront of us that bear so much than it looks, deeper wisdom, deeper understanding and reflection.
Let me relate to you a story that truly breaks hardened hearts, if only reflected much, in sha Allaah.
 Ubaidullah Ibn ‘Umar Qawariri (May Allaah have Mercy on him) narrated:
" I never missed the evening congregational prayer (I’sha) until a guest came to my house on night and I stayed in his company and missed the evening prayer. So I went out looking for a masjid in the city of Basra where I can catch the prayer, but in vain. I found that people had already prayed, and masjids had been closed.
I returned home saying to myself the hadith of our beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassalaam saying:
"The prayer in congregation is twenty-seven (27) times superior to the prayer offered by a person alone."
So, I prayed the evening prayer twenty-seven times over and then went to sleep. In my sleep, I dreamt that I was with a group of people who were racing on horses. I was also racing with them on my horse but I was failing behind them. I kicked my horse to catch up with them but I could not.
One of them turned to me and said: "Do not urge your horse, for you will not be able to catch up with us."
I asked: "Why not?"
He replied: "We prayed the evening prayer in congregation but you prayed it alone."
I woke up, deeply grieved.
Subhan’Allaah! Subhan’Allaah reflect from this man! Look at his determination, and his grief upon missing one salaah.
Realize that you can never be successful in anything unless you have Allaah Azza Wa Jall, yes maybe here in dunya you can race among the richest people, the socialites, the elites of this world and yet your finish line will only at the doom of your death, chasing something that was never meant to be yours.
Yes, I say, do not race with an injured horse and I meant it being your salaah.
I’ve seen a lot of people talking about jihad, urging one another, but when it is time for athan he cannot even raise his hands up surrendering to Allaah in every utterance of Allahu’akbar!
You want to be among the front liners of the army that will emerge from the coming Khalifa, then be strict on your salaah, be consistent and firm with it. How can you stand to fight for Allaah Azza Wa jall when you can’t even stand against yourself?
Your real battle is right there, with your nafs, that’s the jihad you should really really be concerned of, once you are firm with it, then everything will go in its way, to be able to have a firm dedication you have to have a firm belief in your heart.
The Sahabah Radiyallahu Anhum were pioneering models of salaah, it was their dedication for it, their worship to Allaah Azza Wa Jall that would bring them strength to fight in the battlefields, not the twitter fans, nor the tumblr followers it was their taqwa!
O men of this Ummah, you are our protectors, our mujahideen, our warriors, the flag bearers of the Kalimah! So be the likes of ‘Umar Ibn Al Khattab, Ali Ibn Abi Talib, Hamza Ibn Abdul Muttalib, the Khalid Ibn Al Walid, Salahuddin Al Ayyub, such were great men of this deen, they were great warriors but what mold them to be such great fighters for this deen was nothing else but their taqwa and love for Allaah Azza Wa Jall.
Know that these great men would go into the battlefield, strong as mountains, but crying like babies in their Salaah out of their fear and love for Him! They were consistent in their prayers!
The first step to become so strong as them is to work on your hearts, and what else can bring such comfort to it but salaah? Remember how our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassalaam when Khadija Radiyallahu Anha passed away call out to Bilal Radiyallahu Anhu to call the athan, when he lost his sons, he would then call out to Bilal Radiyallahu Anhu to call the athan again, because he could only find ease and comfort within Salaah.
O men of this Ummah, raise your flags by perfecting your salaah first and foremost and see how Allaah Azza Wa Jall will clothe you with His protection and arm you with His strength and bestow upon you weapons that will only lead you and give you a one way ticket back to Him.
So BECOME THE MARTYRS OF THIS UMMAH, Soar high and be honored by Allaah Azza Wa Jall!
Men of this Ummah, you are protectors of the Ummah, your blood is our honor, rejoice for you fight for no one else but Allaah Azza Wa Jall, the King of all Kings!
Soon you will race with the enemies, so see to it you do not race with an injured horse!
Allahu’akbar! Allahu’akbar! Allahu’akbar!
And we pray that we become such establishers of salaah that whenever athan is called we get up immediately and leave our works to go and perform one of the best gifts that He has given us, salaah.
 Al Ka’baar, Ad-Dhahabi, p. 26-27
 Sahih Bukhari: Vol. 1, Book 11, Number 618
"Declare your jihad against 13 enemies. The ones (twelve) you CANNOT see.
If you can master and destroy them, then you will be ready to fight the enemy (one) you CAN see.” - Imam Al-Ghazali
