And if they had intended to march out, certainly, they would have made some preparation for it

Al-Maqdisī

In the Name of Allāh, the Most-Merciful, the Most-Gracious

Praises are due to the One who said:

وَلَوْأَرَادُواْالْخُرُوجَ لأَعَدُّواْ لَهُ عُدَّةً وَلَـكِن كَرِهَ اللّهُانبِعَاثَهُمْ فَثَبَّطَهُمْ وَقِيلَ اقْعُدُواْ مَعَ الْقَاعِدِينَ

“And if they had intended to march out, certainly, they would have made some preparation for it, but Allāh was averse to their being sent forth, so He made them lag behind, and it was said (to them), “Sit you among those who sit (at home).” [at-Tawbah : 46]

لَوْكَانَعَرَضاً قَرِيباً وَسَفَراً قَاصِداً لاَّتَّبَعُوكَ وَلَـكِن بَعُدَتْعَلَيْهِمُ الشُّقَّةُ وَسَيَحْلِفُونَ بِاللّهِ لَوِاسْتَطَعْنَالَخَرَجْنَا مَعَكُمْ يُهْلِكُونَ أَنفُسَهُمْ وَاللّهُ يَعْلَمُإِنَّهُمْ لَكَاذِبُونَ

“Had it been a near gain (booty in front of them) and an easy journey, they would have followed you, but the distance was long for them, and they would swear by Allāh, “If we only could, we would certainly have come forth with you.” They destroy their own selves, and Allāh knows that they are liars.” [at-Tawbah : 42]

فَلَمَّا كُتِبَ عَلَيْهِمُ الْقِتَالُ تَوَلَّوْاْ إِلاَّ قَلِيلاً مِّنْهُمْ وَاللّهُ عَلِيمٌ بِالظَّالِمِينَ

“But when fighting was ordered for them, they turned away, all except a few of them. And Allāh is All-Aware of the Thālimūn (polytheists and wrong-doers).” [al-Baqarah : 246]

And may Peace and Prayers be upon al-Mustafā al-Amīn who warns us saying:

“Whoever dies and does not have, upon his neck, the Pledge of Allegiance (Al-Bay’ah); he dies the death of pre-Islamic Ignorance (Jāhiliyyah).”[Narrated by Muslim from Ibn ‘Umar, may Allāh be pleased with them]

..And Says:

“Whoever does not fight, or take good care or the family that a fighter has left behind, Allāh will inflict him with a calamity before the Day of Ressurection” [Narrated by Abī Dāwūd from Abī Umāmah, may Allāh be pleased with him]

Stand up, O Brother, and search for a merchandise that will not fallow and will save you from a painful torment…

***

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا هَلْ أَدُلُّكُمْ عَلَى تِجَارَةٍ تُنجِيكُم مِّنْ عَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ
تُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ وَتُجَاهِدُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِبِأَمْوَالِكُمْ وَأَنفُسِكُمْ ذَلِكُمْ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْتَعْلَمُونَ
يَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَيُدْخِلْكُمْ جَنَّاتٍ تَجْرِي مِنتَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهَارُوَمَسَاكِنَ طَيِّبَةً فِي جَنَّاتِ عَدْنٍ ذَلِكَالْفَوْزُ الْعَظِيمُ
وَأُخْرَى تُحِبُّونَهَا نَصْرٌ مِّنَ اللَّهِ وَفَتْحٌ قَرِيبٌ وَبَشِّرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ

“O, You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment. “That you believe in Allāh and His Messenger, and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allāh with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know! (If you do so) He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of ‘Adn -Eternity [‘Adn (Edn) Paradise], that is indeed the great success. And also (He will give you) another (blessing) which you love, help from Allāh (against your enemies) and a near victory. And give glad tidings to the believers.” [as-Saff : 10-13]

Stand up, O Brother, and help brothers of yours asking for your help…

مَا لَكُمْ لَا تَنَاصَرُونَ

“What is the matter with you? Why do you not help one another?” [as-Sāffāt : 25]

Stand up, O Brother, for you are not a cuckold…

Isn’t the chaste of ‘Irāq your Sister?! Isn’t the virtuous of Shīshān your Honor?! Don’t the scattered bodies of the children concern you?!

وَمَالَكُمْ لاَ تُقَاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللّهِ وَالْمُسْتَضْعَفِينَ مِنَالرِّجَالِ وَالنِّسَاء وَالْوِلْدَانِ الَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَرَبَّنَاأَخْرِجْنَا مِنْ هَـذِهِ الْقَرْيَةِ الظَّالِمِ أَهْلُهَاوَاجْعَل لَّنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ وَلِيّاً وَاجْعَل لَّنَا مِن لَّدُنكَنَصِيراً

“And what is wrong with you that you fight not in the Cause of Allāh, and for those weak, ill-treated 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-Nisā’ : 75]

Are you pleased with the Cross to be planted in your land and you remain silent?!

Are you pleased with the Jews to shake their heads in the Masjid al-Aqsā?!

Are you pleased that all the Lands of Islam to be occupied and ruled by other than the Sharī’ah of Allāh?!

وَمَن لَّمْ يَحْكُم بِمَا أَنزَلَ اللّهُ فَأُوْلَـئِكَ هُمُ الْكَافِرُونَ

 

“And whosoever does not judge by what Allāh has revealed, such are the Kāfirūn (disbelievers)” [al-Mā’idah : 44]

Does it please you that the Impies impure the ‘Irāqi Masājid and to bombard the Ma’āthin in Shīshān?!

Don’t you know that without Jihād, the Earth would have been corrupted, the Masājid would have been destructed, and people would have been prevented from the remembrance of Allāh..?!

وَلَوْلاَ دَفْعُ اللّهِ النَّاسَ بَعْضَهُمْ بِبَعْضٍ لَّفَسَدَتِ الأَرْضُ وَلَـكِنَّ اللّهَ ذُو فَضْلٍ عَلَى الْعَالَمِينَ

“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 ‘Ālamīn (mankind, jinns and all that exists).” [al-Baqarah : 251]

وَلَوْلَادَفْعُ اللَّهِ النَّاسَ بَعْضَهُم بِبَعْضٍ لَّهُدِّمَتْ صَوَامِعُوَبِيَعٌ وَصَلَوَاتٌ وَمَسَاجِدُ يُذْكَرُ فِيهَا اسْمُ اللَّهِ كَثِيراًوَلَيَنصُرَنَّ اللَّهُ مَن يَنصُرُهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَقَوِيٌّ عَزِيزٌ

“For had it not been that Allāh checks one set of people by means of another, monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, wherein the Name of Allāh is mentioned much would surely have been pulled down. Verily, Allāh will help those who help His (Cause). Truly, Allāh is All-Strong, All-Mighty.” [al-Hajj : 40]

Does it please you to come across the Āyāt of Jihād and Qitāl, and then you become one of those whom Allāh had said to:

أَفَتُؤْمِنُونَبِبَعْضِ الْكِتَابِ وَتَكْفُرُونَ بِبَعْضٍ فَمَا جَزَاء مَن يَفْعَلُذَلِكَ مِنكُمْ إِلاَّ خِزْيٌ فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَيَوْمَالْقِيَامَةِ يُرَدُّونَ إِلَى أَشَدِّ الْعَذَابِ وَمَا اللّهُ بِغَافِلٍعَمَّا تَعْمَلُونَ

“Then do you believe in a part of the Scripture and reject the rest? Then what is the recompense of those who do so among you, except disgrace in the life of this world, and on the Day of Resurrection they shall be consigned to the most grievous torment. And Allāh is not unaware of what you do.” [al-Baqarah : 85]

Doesn’t the wills of your beloved Muhammad- SallAllāhu ‘Alayhi Wa Sallam- deprive you from sleep:

“Expel the Polytheists from the ArabPeninsula” “Free the Suffering (POW)”

What is the matter with you that you don’t prepare your weapon and equipment?!

وَأَعِدُّواْلَهُم مَّا اسْتَطَعْتُم مِّن قُوَّةٍ وَمِن رِّبَاطِ الْخَيْلِتُرْهِبُونَ بِهِ عَدْوَّ اللّهِ وَعَدُوَّكُمْ وَآخَرِينَ مِن دُونِهِمْلاَ تَعْلَمُونَهُمُ اللّهُ يَعْلَمُهُمْ وَمَا تُنفِقُواْ مِن شَيْءٍ فِيسَبِيلِ اللّهِ يُوَفَّ إِلَيْكُمْ وَأَنتُمْ لاَ تُظْلَمُونَ

“And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war to threaten the enemy of Allāh and your enemy, and others besides whom, you may not know but whom Allāh does know. And whatever you shall spend in the Cause of Allāh shall be repaid unto you, and you shall not be treated unjustly.” [al-Anfāl : 60]

What is the matter with you that you don’t incite your children and brethren?! For you have no excuse today, and you have no where to run… you are not tasked except for yourself…

فَقَاتِلْفِي سَبِيلِ اللّهِ لاَ تُكَلَّفُ إِلاَّ نَفْسَكَ وَحَرِّضِالْمُؤْمِنِينَ عَسَى اللّهُ أَن يَكُفَّ بَأْسَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْوَاللّهُ أَشَدُّ بَأْساً وَأَشَدُّ تَنكِيلاً

“Then fight in the Cause of Allāh, you are not tasked (held responsible) except for yourself, and incite the believers, it may be that Allāh will restrain the evil might of the disbelievers. And Allāh is Stronger in Might and Stronger in punishing.” [an-Nisaa’ : 84]

So wake up, O Lion of Islām, for Allāh is with you, and whomever Allāh is with will never be defeated because of fewness!

And if the Ummah comes together to harm you with something, they wouldn’t be able to harm you except with something that Allāh had written upon you, Pens have been raised and Papers have dried.

When I talked to you, O Brother, I feared for myself and you, to become one of those who abandoned Jihād for the love of the Family and Children so then we gain the Torment of Allāh and His Punishment:

قُلْإِن كَانَ آبَاؤُكُمْ وَأَبْنَآؤُكُمْ وَإِخْوَانُكُمْوَأَزْوَاجُكُمْوَعَشِيرَتُكُمْ وَأَمْوَالٌ اقْتَرَفْتُمُوهَاوَتِجَارَةٌ تَخْشَوْنَكَسَادَهَا وَمَسَاكِنُ تَرْضَوْنَهَا أَحَبَّإِلَيْكُم مِّنَ اللّهِوَرَسُولِهِ وَجِهَادٍ فِي سَبِيلِهِفَتَرَبَّصُواْ حَتَّى يَأْتِي َاللّهُ بِأَمْرِهِ وَاللّهُ لاَ يَهْدِيالْقَوْمَ الْفَاسِقِينَ

“Say: If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your kindred, the wealth that you have gained, the commerce in which you fear a decline, and the dwellings in which you delight … are dearer to you than Allāh and His Messenger, and striving hard and fighting in His Cause, then wait until Allāh brings about His Decision (torment). And Allāh guides not the people who are al-Fāsiqūn (the rebellious, disobedient to Allāh).” [at-Tawbah : 24]

Or that what Allāh says becomes true on us, when He says:

يَاأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ مَا لَكُمْ إِذَا قِيلَ لَكُمُ انفِرُواْ فِيسَبِيلِ اللّهِ اثَّاقَلْتُمْ إِلَى الأَرْضِ أَرَضِيتُم بِالْحَيَاةِالدُّنْيَا مِنَ الآخِرَةِ فَمَا مَتَاعُ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا فِيالآخِرَةِ إِلاَّ قَلِيلٌ
إِلاَّ تَنفِرُواْيُعَذِّبْكُمْ عَذَاباً أَلِيماً وَيَسْتَبْدِلْ قَوْماًغَيْرَكُمْ وَلاَتَضُرُّوهُ شَيْئاً وَاللّهُ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

“O, you who believe! What is the matter with you, that when you are asked to march forth in the Cause of Allāh (i.e. Jihād) you cling heavily to the earth? Are you pleased with the life of this world rather than the Hereafter? But little is the enjoyment of the life of this world as compared with the Hereafter. If you march not forth, He will punish you with a painful torment and will replace you by another people, and you cannot harm Him at all, and Allāh is Able to do all things.” [at-Tawbah : 38-39]

***

How, and Allāh had ordered the Believers:

وَقَاتِلُوهُمْحَتَّى لاَ تَكُونَ فِتْنَةٌ وَيَكُونَ الدِّينُ كُلُّهُ لِلّه فَإِنِانتَهَوْاْ فَإِنَّ اللّهَ بِمَا يَعْمَلُونَ بَصِيرٌ

“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 Allāh Alone [in the whole of the world]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allāh is all-Seer of what they do.” [al-Anfaal : 39]

قَاتِلُواْالَّذِينَ لاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللّهِ وَلاَ بِالْيَوْمِ الآخِرِوَلاَيُحَرِّمُونَ مَا حَرَّمَ اللّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ وَلاَ يَدِينُونَ دِينَالْحَقِّ مِنَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ الْكِتَابَ حَتَّىيُعْطُواْالْجِزْيَةَ عَن يَدٍ وَهُمْ صَاغِرُونَ

“Fight against those who believe not in Allāh, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allāh and His Messenger and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” [at-Tawbah : 29]

يَاأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ قَاتِلُواْ الَّذِينَ يَلُونَكُم مِّنَالْكُفَّارِ وَلْيَجِدُواْ فِيكُمْ غِلْظَةً وَاعْلَمُواْ أَنَّ اللّهَمَعَ الْمُتَّقِينَ

“O, you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allāh is with those who are the Al-Muttaqūn (the pious).” [at-Tawbah : 123]

قَاتِلُوهُمْ يُعَذِّبْهُمُ اللّهُ بِأَيْدِيكُمْ وَيُخْزِهِمْ وَيَنصُرْكُمْ عَلَيْهِمْ وَيَشْفِ صُدُورَ قَوْمٍ مُّؤْمِنِينَ
وَيُذْهِبْ غَيْظَ قُلُوبِهِمْ وَيَتُوبُ اللّهُ عَلَى مَن يَشَاءُ وَاللّهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ

“Fight against them so that Allāh will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people, and remove the anger of their (believers’) hearts. Allāh accepts the repentance of whom He wills. Allāh is All-Knowing, All-Wise.” [at-Tawbah : 14-15]

يَاأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ مَا لَكُمْ إِذَا قِيلَ لَكُمُ انفِرُواْ فِيسَبِيلِ اللّهِ اثَّاقَلْتُمْ إِلَى الأَرْضِ أَرَضِيتُم بِالْحَيَاةِالدُّنْيَا مِنَ الآخِرَةِ فَمَا مَتَاعُ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا فِيالآخِرَةِ إِلاَّ قَلِيلٌ
إِلاَّ تَنفِرُوا ْيُعَذِّبْكُمْ عَذَاباً أَلِيماً وَيَسْتَبْدِلْقَوْماً غَيْرَكُمْ وَلاَتَضُرُّوهُ شَيْئاً وَاللّهُ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍقَدِيرٌ
إِلاَّتَنصُرُوهُ فَقَدْ نَصَرَهُ اللّهُ إِذْ أَخْرَجَهُ الَّذِينَكَفَرُواْ ثَانِيَ اثْنَيْنِ إِذْ هُمَا فِي الْغَارِ إِذْ يَقُولُلِصَاحِبِهِ لاَتَحْزَنْ إِنَّ اللّهَ مَعَنَا فَأَنزَلَ اللّهُسَكِينَتَهُ عَلَيْهِ وَأَيَّدَهُ بِجُنُودٍ لَّمْ تَرَوْهَا وَجَعَلَكَلِمَةَ الَّذِين َكَفَرُواْ السُّفْلَى وَكَلِمَةُ اللّهِ هِيَالْعُلْيَا وَاللّهُ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ

“O, you who believe! What is the matter with you, that when you are asked to march forth in the Cause of Allāh you cling heavily to the earth? Are you pleased with the life of this world rather than the Hereafter? But little is the enjoyment of the life of this world as compared with the Hereafter. If you march not forth, He will punish you with a painful torment and will replace you by another people, and you cannot harm Him at all, and Allāh is Able to do all things. If you help him not (it does not matter), for Allāh did indeed help him when the disbelievers drove him out, the second of two, when they were in the cave, and he said to his companion: “Be not sad (or afraid), surely Allāh is with us.” Then Allāh sent down His Sakīnah (calmness, tranquility, peace, etc.) upon him, and strengthened him with forces (angels) which you saw not, and made the word of those who disbelieved the lowermost, while it was the Word of Allāh that became the uppermost, and Allāh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.” [at-Tawbah : 38-40]

كُتِبَعَلَيْكُمُ الْقِتَالُ وَهُوَ كُرْهٌ لَّكُمْ وَعَسَى أَن تَكْرَهُواْشَيْئاً وَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ وَعَسَى أَن تُحِبُّواْ شَيْئاًوَهُوَشَرٌّ لَّكُمْ وَاللّهُ يَعْلَمُ وَأَنتُمْ لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ

“Jihād is ordained for you 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. Allāh knows but you do not know.” [al-Baqarah : 216]

فَاقْتُلُواْ الْمُشْرِكِينَ حَيْثُ وَجَدتُّمُوهُمْ وَخُذُوهُمْ وَاحْصُرُوهُمْ وَاقْعُدُواْ لَهُمْ كُلَّ مَرْصَدٍ

“Then kill the Mushrikūn wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush.” [at-Tawbah : 5]

انْفِرُواْخِفَافاً وَثِقَالاً وَجَاهِدُواْ بِأَمْوَالِكُمْ وَأَنفُسِكُمْفِيسَبِيلِ اللّهِ ذَلِكُمْ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

“March forth, whether you are light (being healthy, young and wealthy) or heavy (being ill, old and poor), strive hard with your wealth and your lives in the Cause of Allāh. This is better for you, if you but knew.” [at-Tawbah : 41] (This Āyah left no excuse for anyone)

فَإِذا لَقِيتُمُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا فَضَرْبَ الرِّقَابِ حَتَّى إِذَا أَثْخَنتُمُوهُمْ فَشُدُّوا الْوَثَاقَ

“So, when you meet (in fight Jihād in Allāh’s Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly..”[Muhammad : 4]
