00:00:51 --> 00:00:58

We begin by asking Allah, Allah subhanaw taala and young filmin alumina you see Tina

00:01:00 --> 00:01:03

00:01:11 --> 00:01:15

we ask Allah to forgive, forgive our sins

00:01:17 --> 00:01:36

and mercy upon us, we ask Allah subhanaw taala for useful knowledge understanding and for wide sustenance. We depend utterly on him, the glory be to Him, and to him is our return. And there is no power of mine except not have a law.

00:01:38 --> 00:01:40

From our last session

00:01:41 --> 00:01:43

in Fukushima

00:01:46 --> 00:01:51

we, we said that in this session I will go into last time we were talking about

00:01:54 --> 00:02:27

society interaction in society because we were looking in the context of the cipher, or sometimes known as the constitution drawn up in Medina, on that basis, would probably saw some after the Hydra, that's where we are in the Sierra being focused era and opens up avenues for us to discuss various issues. One of them was relationships in society, and then relating the lessons we learn from Medina in society and from grandson to our relay situation. And I covered many aspects of that in the last couple of sessions.

00:02:28 --> 00:02:31

Now, we come to a topic which is

00:02:33 --> 00:02:34

greatly misunderstood.

00:02:35 --> 00:02:41

It's greatly misunderstood by Muslims, I believe, before it became understood by non Muslims.

00:02:42 --> 00:02:45

And, and that is a topic of jihad.

00:02:47 --> 00:03:04

The topic of jihad became so misunderstood by orientalist and Western nations that if you look for the, in fact, it's in the dictionary Oxford Dictionary, the word jihad. And if you look the meaning of it, you will find it says

00:03:09 --> 00:03:17

holy war, holy war. For those of you who've been studying Islam for years, you'll know that this has been the case for

00:03:18 --> 00:03:37

as far as I remember. Remember, it's not changed. So jihad, the meaning is holy war, and that is not from them, actually, because many of our own interpreters, and ima have given that view and have written books under the word jihad,

00:03:38 --> 00:03:40

and talk just about fighting,

00:03:41 --> 00:03:41


00:03:42 --> 00:03:45

And this is an important topic that we need to clarify.

00:03:46 --> 00:03:51

Why because we come into a situation in Syria, where we're going to have a battle situation.

00:03:53 --> 00:03:56

So there's various angles, we have to clarify it from

00:03:58 --> 00:04:10

the angle of Of course, what is jihad in essence? Does he have anything to do with fighting? Do they have nothing to do with fighting? Or do they have something to do fighting perhaps, and

00:04:11 --> 00:04:22

even in regards to warfare, we need to also look at the issue of and this is a long debated issue amongst Allah from past

00:04:23 --> 00:04:37

and to the near, near future and near past and the present until the debate will continue. As to Islam. When we talk about warfare now, we're not talking about jihad, I'm talking about

00:04:39 --> 00:04:39


00:04:42 --> 00:04:44

Some Allah said there is

00:04:46 --> 00:04:48

defensive warfare

00:04:49 --> 00:04:52

other and there is also offensive warfare.

00:04:54 --> 00:04:57

Okay. And that's quite a popular opinion By the way,

00:04:58 --> 00:04:59

but others

00:05:00 --> 00:05:15

I know there is in Islam, the only fighting that we get from Quran and authentic narrations from Rasulullah saw some you'll see that fighting is always defensive warfare in Islam. Islam doesn't initiate

00:05:16 --> 00:05:36

Islam initiate conquering and taking the offensive. Right? That's very important to understand this difference, I will look at that as well. But let's start with the issue of jihad first and what is the meaning of jihad? And why do we get this meaning etc, etc, and certain

00:05:38 --> 00:05:51

ideas that people put forward based on various things. Jihad itself, we want to look at the meaning of jihad, we have to go to the Quran. We have to go to the Quran and the Sunnah. authentics Allah says,

00:05:52 --> 00:05:58

woman tjahaja in America, he told NFC in the la lucha neon

00:06:01 --> 00:06:04

in the Lucha Libre Museum, I mean,

00:06:08 --> 00:06:17

whoever does jihad, then they do the Jihad for their own benefit by Nima mujahadeen enough. See, surely Allah is above all need

00:06:18 --> 00:06:21

from his creation.

00:06:25 --> 00:06:25


00:06:26 --> 00:06:29

is is Surah 29 verse six.

00:06:30 --> 00:06:39

Also in Surah Surah Hajj Allah says, We're j e to fill the hopper God

00:08:12 --> 00:08:16

this is interesting because this is in Surah. Hajj

00:08:18 --> 00:08:29

there's various opinions about sort of logic, but the most strongest and popular opinion also based on authentic report from the adverse majority opinion is that sweat lodge is a lucky soul

00:08:30 --> 00:08:33

is a monkey so that's important.

00:08:34 --> 00:08:34


00:08:37 --> 00:08:47

Because no fighting in Mecca. No order for fighting was given in Mecca. warfare started in Medina. Yes. So this is a mechi surah

00:08:48 --> 00:08:50

it does have some Ayah

00:08:51 --> 00:09:29

three or four of them which are meddling and you have sodas like that. Yeah, especially monkeys, right? There's a handful of sorta you call the monkey because most of it is monkey and it has odd diet which came in Medina. So circle Hodge has that as well. For example, what are the is was it which is an exception to being called monkey insolently hatch is the area who's in alladhina ukata Luna b n na homerville lemo permission has been given to those who are being fought yukata Luna those who have been fought was the permission given given to them to do fight back

00:09:56 --> 00:10:00

after the hater of Rasulullah saw salon which gave permission to

00:10:00 --> 00:10:01

fight back.

00:10:02 --> 00:10:11

This isn't suited to hedge even though the hedge is mucky, so you follow him. This isn't madness.

00:10:13 --> 00:10:16

However the other I mentioned to you which I do

00:10:18 --> 00:10:18

feel like I

00:10:19 --> 00:10:34

feel Phil I have a jihadi who wish to back home at the end of sweat lodge. Notice he says militar abiko Ibrahim, like the religion of your father, father, Abraham, he never went to any warfare. So when he's talking about jihad, they're not talking about fighting.

00:10:37 --> 00:10:55

It's not talking about fighting, using the word jihad. There, but it's murky, so it cannot mean fighting. So when Allah says has an order, where j do feel, laddie, then do jihad in the way of Allah as you ought to do jihad, aka jihadi

00:10:56 --> 00:10:57

What does it mean?

00:10:59 --> 00:11:15

Can't be fighting, can't be faking it he's telling you what it means. Well, he masala to soccer struggle and establish Salah pay the soccer Yeah, and here is a car if it's in Mecca, can be given certified to purify your

And wassim will be heavily left hold fasten to the rope of Allah because it was a struggle to hold fast under Obama like Mecca wasn't it as we've been through to the Sierra in Mecca where it was like, yeah,

00:11:32 --> 00:11:35

and the other eye which I mentioned mentioned to you.

00:11:37 --> 00:11:45

When you find Nemo, you Jacqueline FC whoever does Jihad they do jihad for their own good. This is also McKee I

00:11:46 --> 00:11:47

so it didn't mean fighting.

00:11:50 --> 00:11:57

By Nima you Jagger, whoever struggles then they struggle and strive in the way of Allah for their own good.

00:11:59 --> 00:12:00

That's what it means.

00:12:04 --> 00:12:08

finding them iugr NFC, then Allah SWAT also says

00:12:14 --> 00:12:20

one levena Jaya jaha do feanor la Vienna Hong Solana

00:12:21 --> 00:12:41

those cha hadoo feanor who do jihad fee meaning fee now is for Allah Allah talking about himself. Leon a fee Sabina in our way, we will guide them learner Vietnam similar to our ways. For those who struggle towards us we will guide them

00:12:43 --> 00:12:45

know, whereas the fighting here

00:12:47 --> 00:12:51

there's no fighting there. Those who fight a smoky eye again.

00:12:52 --> 00:13:23

in Mecca It was very clear. Otherwise not a contradiction because Allah said in the grand Khufu ad or Co Op masala to the prophet SAW salon and the Sahaba hold down your hands when they were being persecuted. injured, tortured and killed. Yeah, Khufu, Abia komaki masala hold down your hands but established salah and all these are coming these are yet still at that time. So if you had men fighting, it's impossible.

00:13:24 --> 00:13:43

It's impossible. Everybody's agreed there is no fighting no order for fighting for Muslims in Mecca. No order for fighting. So, all these is a monkey. And they saying they mention the word jihad. It means it means to struggle which is the the prime meaning of jihad,

00:13:44 --> 00:13:47

it is to struggle and Allah subhanaw taala

00:13:51 --> 00:14:30

mentions also in so alpha Converse 4050 to 25 goes up to a lot smarter says fella total care fee was he to whom B he had kV RA and do not obeyed the disbelievers Catherine those rejecters don't follow them don't obey them. Meaning in Diem follow their ways but I took a look carefully in what he the home be and do jihad against them with it with walk

00:14:31 --> 00:14:59

with the kurata be he Jihad and Kabira major Jihad big jihad. So if that means fighting, are they going to fight with the Quran? Like use it like a sword or something? There was no more stuff. Anyway, it was mostly recitation, there was some writings on parchment, which I hit the home key, dude. Yeah, that means with the tongue with the argument tastes with the Quran. It was Quran affected so many Sahaba mostly wasn't it that message

00:15:00 --> 00:15:09

As the melted the heart because the ones who had the ground from the solar system to other leading Sahaba they were doing jihad with the Quran in Dawa

00:15:10 --> 00:15:11

McKee I get.

00:15:13 --> 00:15:22

So so many evidences we have, McKee is where jihad is being ordered for cannot mean fighting. It cannot mean fight.

00:15:24 --> 00:15:26

However, it's important to understand

00:15:27 --> 00:15:32

the when we talk about struggle, struggle comes in various words, isn't it?

00:15:34 --> 00:15:41

struggle is an own when you talk about the word struggle in English, that you struggle to achieve something that use various means.

00:15:44 --> 00:15:52

Yeah, whether it's your tongue, whether it's your mind, your abilities, yeah, your heart,

00:15:54 --> 00:15:56

all that striving and your hands

00:15:57 --> 00:16:02

unenhanced it can, it can include fighting as well.

00:16:03 --> 00:16:10

It can include fighting. So fighting, acquittal can be under jihad.

00:16:12 --> 00:16:36

But it is not the only meaning of jihad, you have an equal holy war. So Qatar is there as an under under the title of jihad, if it is done for justice in the way of Allah. Not any critical. Yeah, just because Muslim decided to call it jihad. They're fighting doesn't make a jihad.

00:16:37 --> 00:16:57

Okay? It depends on what Allah sees it, whether they're following the rules or regulations of the Sharia of the Quran and Sunnah in doing that, and that's important to understand. So under it, yes, it can come. Yeah. But generally, the Quran uses the word pattern for fighting

00:16:58 --> 00:17:06

without for fighting. And that's important. If you look at Jihad itself. Then we mentioned the plan saying Jihad and khedira

00:17:08 --> 00:17:10

is big, Major.

00:17:11 --> 00:17:24

And if you look at a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, for example, to show you that the heavy emphasis on the word jihad is more towards non fighting rather than fighting

00:17:25 --> 00:17:29

the promises Some said Alamo j in authentically

00:17:30 --> 00:17:32

Allah de jehoiada.

00:17:34 --> 00:17:35


00:17:36 --> 00:17:38

o tjahaja, Neff, several

00:17:39 --> 00:17:48

layers or jaha do gehouden Neff Sabu, futa Atilla fito, Atilla.

00:17:50 --> 00:17:55

That j is the one who struggles with themselves in the way of Allah

00:17:56 --> 00:18:00

struggles with themselves, it's very comprehensive meaning isn't it?

00:18:01 --> 00:18:30

Then in a one version of the same authentic, the need for sustenance, who strives in the way of Allah Mujahid is the one who stands in the way of Allah in obedience in being obedient to Allah. He thought Atilla Yeah, so when we strive to be obedient to Allah and doing the things that we are commanded, ordered, or encouraged to do and staying away from the things were to stay with Jenkins, according to the sudo muscle.

00:18:32 --> 00:18:38

So it gives a wide meaning. And then prophesize living authentically is saying after she had

00:18:40 --> 00:18:43

the most virtues of jihad is what?

00:18:47 --> 00:18:56

No, no, that's a separate issue and this idea after all, Jihad Kelly metal Hawk in the end, Soltani, Jerry,

00:18:58 --> 00:19:26

most virtues of jihad is to speak a word of truth in front of a tyrant ruler, in one version, because fear of the tyrant rule is going to kill the person, but you stand and speak what is just in truth. That's not fighting is it? Best to lay your life on the line but you're not fighting with a soul? It is to speak. So most virtues of jihad, prophesized Islam is saying is Kalamata hoc in the anger so timely genuine.

00:19:27 --> 00:19:36

So it's important to remember these kind of evidences shows that the the meaning of jihad, we'll come back to that issue that you mentioned about the hardness.

00:19:38 --> 00:19:39


00:19:45 --> 00:19:46

many people actually,

00:19:48 --> 00:19:52

when we were involved in the 80s, we used to hear

00:19:53 --> 00:19:59

this is one of the Hadith that the prophet SAW Islam said that the UK Jihad Jihad Al Akbar

00:20:00 --> 00:20:08

Is Jihad Jihad enough's? That the biggest jihad is Jihad on oneself you have a one cell

00:20:10 --> 00:20:15

and actually this is not the proper size it is not authenticated the profits.

00:20:17 --> 00:20:24

However we can get we can take something from it because it is authenticated to somebody who was a savvy,

00:20:26 --> 00:20:38

trustworthy good turbie according to Allah, in the old his books, and it is a report from this tab he called Ibrahim in a lb Abdullah a Shani.

00:20:40 --> 00:20:44

A moose Hawk is kunia Ibrahim in the

00:20:45 --> 00:20:48

abbey Abdullah a Shami was

00:20:49 --> 00:20:51

a righteous and pious Tabby

00:20:53 --> 00:20:56

in Shang Of course, theory area

00:20:57 --> 00:21:29

and this is reported in a minute aside Chris tardy who the mosque was an old angelbird Written by their socket in it is a report with a chain which is authentic to the Tabby so it is a call of therapy. It's a good it's a good statement. Okay. And as a good understanding from him, because the report says that when a battalion of fighters came back from war, back to Sham

00:21:30 --> 00:21:31

there were

00:21:32 --> 00:21:34

they met Ibrahim Avi

00:21:36 --> 00:21:38

Abdullah, he said to them,

00:21:45 --> 00:21:46

he said you've come back

00:21:48 --> 00:21:49

male jihad in Isla

00:21:53 --> 00:21:53

Cotta Raja

00:21:55 --> 00:21:59

mineral Jihad Al Azhar from FL tomb filled jihad in Aqaba.

00:22:00 --> 00:22:02

Paulo, yah,

00:22:03 --> 00:22:08

Mo Jihad Akbar, on Jihad on the call.

00:22:09 --> 00:22:16

So he said to them, you've come back from the lesser jihad, the smaller Jihad had just been fighting, laying their lives on the line.

00:22:18 --> 00:22:34

And he said, Oh, I wonder what you're going to do in the major jihad, the bigger jihad. They said, Oh, boo, Sark. What's the big idea? They were thinking, well, bigger is what we've done, what we've done, he said you had of the heart, Jihad meaning of the neffs.

00:22:35 --> 00:22:38

So this is authentic to him, and has a very good meaning.

00:22:40 --> 00:22:42

And we'll, we'll come back come back.

00:22:43 --> 00:22:44

Later, we will

00:22:46 --> 00:22:55

set in regards to jihad. Now, when we look at the issue of jihad, and we have to look at the issue of guitar as well.

00:22:57 --> 00:23:04

Another set betaal can be under the category as long as it's according to the Quran and Sunnah. And for justice.

00:23:06 --> 00:23:16

One of the and I mentioned to you some lessons back those who went for the ayah to save the eye on the sword in Surah. October.

00:23:17 --> 00:23:32

Yeah. And because of that, the abrogate is so much of the Quran abrogated meaning they said is defunct because they reduced the relationship with disbelievers and Al Kitab and Jews to killing them

00:23:34 --> 00:23:59

up to loom to move them kill them wherever you find them. And I told you this is totally accurate and totally impartial this meaning Yeah, at that time. Now, in similar line, they use various other evidences to try and show that some of them to try and show that Islam came with offensive jihad or offensive

00:24:01 --> 00:24:02

fighting or warfare.

00:24:04 --> 00:24:21

For example, they use 100 which is authentic to the Prophet Aslam where he said or mirror to an apostle a nurse or a doula Illallah Muhammad Rasul Allah, Faiza aloo vaniqa ossible meanie Dima

00:24:23 --> 00:24:24

y ser boom

00:24:28 --> 00:24:59

in this authentic IDs, and if you see disobeys as we saw in the 80s and 90s. And those were peddling this hadith and another one I'm going to mention in a minute, though, they were the ones who are particularly jihadi mentality, and I use the word jihad in a loose idea, because when they said they were jihad, these jihadi groups, they meant there was a harsh and fighting group, not the meaning of jihad that would have just given they had only one meaning of jihad. Yeah, so those kind of groups and people who are that way inclined you

00:25:00 --> 00:25:02

To throw these kind of things that is, in that way,

00:25:03 --> 00:25:18

this serif and in that translation if you look at in books as well, this is also incorrectly often often incorrectly translated and apologized and said, I have been ordered to kill human beings.

00:25:20 --> 00:25:50

Until Yeah, or unless they say the Shahada that fits with the those who went for the I've saved with non Muslim inside of the sword for killing or you have to say the Shahada. So you can't use like that 15 no compulsion in religion. So they use this stuff in a similar way. I've been ordered. That's what I've been sent for. I've been ordered to kill. Yeah, until and unless they say la ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah, the Shahada.

00:25:51 --> 00:25:52

And if they do,

00:25:54 --> 00:25:58

Lola Halawa, Muhammad Rasul Allah wa, wa,

00:25:59 --> 00:26:09

to soccer, and they established the salah, and they pay the soccer. Yeah, if they do that, then their blood and their property is safe from me.

00:26:10 --> 00:26:18

Right? So they also use the arguments if they don't do that they have gotten properties not safe from me. Yeah, I'm gonna go on attack and kill them.

00:26:20 --> 00:26:29

Except that which is left to take account of from last month last week, that's the complete list of these although is authentic when you take it out of its context.

00:26:31 --> 00:26:35

You take it out of its content, you can't take one at a time to understand the issue.

00:26:36 --> 00:26:45

So even when you look at the Quran in surah Toba, which we deliberated on some weeks ago, where it mentions about killing, even there,

00:26:46 --> 00:26:57

even that Allah subhanaw taala gave option, aside from fighting, of giving people the opportunity to come to a peace agreement and pages yet

00:26:59 --> 00:27:33

jizya, or to come to a truce and ask for us for even a safe passage is still October for those who didn't want to believe but they want safe passage, Allah saying give them safe passage, this or even give you any of those options. It says Shahada or be killed. Yeah. But you can't take it therefore like that you have to take this study in its context with the Quran first, which is clarifying for you a context behind the fighting and the killing, which is people who are war with you.

00:27:34 --> 00:27:37

They can't take you out of his out of his place.

00:27:41 --> 00:27:52

So people who work with you and then came also the heaviness of barreda, which is a famous serif in Sahih Muslim, which brought this hadith and the Quranic ayah together

00:27:53 --> 00:27:57

in a context that we need to understand what we need to understand

00:27:59 --> 00:28:00

that Allah says

00:28:02 --> 00:28:04

in the Quran, clearly, this also

00:28:06 --> 00:28:30

is a rebuttal for those who say there's offensive, offensive warfare, or offensive war in Islam. Allah says in the Quran walky lo fi Serbian Allah He Levine, iupati Luna kumala do and fight in the way of Allah those who fight you and do not transgress

00:28:31 --> 00:28:48

and do not transgress in Allah Allah you will not have been surely Allah does not love those who transgress that transgression can mean in the way of fighting and also fighting those who don't fight you because the beginning of the ISS fight those who fight you

00:28:50 --> 00:29:01

Yeah. Then says Welcome to New Home hasankeyf to move home so wherever you find in the Quran, you have to put it in this context and kill the wherever you find them in warfare.

00:29:02 --> 00:29:07

Means on the battlefield Yeah, not walking down the street.

00:29:08 --> 00:29:31

Yeah, for those who are not fighting, so it's in warfare. Walker to loom High School soccer how to move them wha athlete to whom in high school after a joke them and throw them out for where they threw you out. Well fit Natasha Domino Patil and fitna meaning tribulation and, and tyranny and oppression is worse than than killing in this situation.

00:29:33 --> 00:29:35

And it carries on

00:29:36 --> 00:29:51

unless water is fine in Tahoe, and if they stop meaning if they stop attacking and fighting you for in the love of water, right? Yeah, surely Allah is of forgiving, Most Merciful. Does that mean carry on killing them?

00:29:53 --> 00:29:58

But Allah says Allah is Forgiving, Most Merciful. Yeah, it means stop fighting them.

00:29:59 --> 00:29:59

Walk on

00:30:00 --> 00:30:20

loo home hut, Allah takuna fitna find them until that tyranny from them is stopped. Yeah, way akuna Dino, Dino lil fi Nintendo Fallout one Illa, Allah Bali mean. And if they stop and refrain from fighting you, then there's no enmity, enmity in other words.

00:30:28 --> 00:30:36

And similar I came, I haven't got time to go through all of them. But this is one of the best time to show you about fighting and there is no other Ayah

00:30:37 --> 00:30:48

from the Quran, authentic hadith, which gives the idea of you initiating the fighting, fighting is disliked.

00:30:50 --> 00:30:52

Fighting is disliked in Islam.

00:30:54 --> 00:31:05

It is a last resort. It is a last resort when you're your own life, property and blood and the citizen are in danger. Yeah, even then there are options given

00:31:06 --> 00:31:08

or making treaties,

00:31:09 --> 00:31:29

making a peace treaty to avoid the fighting. And you'll see the policy Islam as we go through Medina, how he tries to do that in different places to make peace treaties to avoid a fight to avoid bloodshed. And this is the way of Rasulullah saw. So I would expect that because it fits with rock metal element, doesn't it?

00:31:30 --> 00:32:09

That's the way Oh, that's the word of Islam didn't come with the idea of initiating fighting, but it does. How do you think Sahih Muslim is interesting because here it mentioned the prophesies. So there is a long Hadith and I'll give you an overview of it. The eponymous Aslam used to when he used to send out a battalion small battalion. And of course he's sending them out in warfare battle. He's sending them out under this heading of those who are fighting us so now he's sending out battalion. He's not sitting at home in Medina and nobody's fighting him and he's sending out war parties everywhere is he? Is that the meaning we get

00:32:10 --> 00:32:11

it because the Quran

00:32:12 --> 00:32:54

is against his way of life. Some people from the Muslims gave this idea to the orientalist and non Muslims that the prophet SAW some he was told not to fight and he didn't fight with those who even don't believe in prophet. He didn't fight because a week in Mecca, but as soon as they got to Medina, and they got a bit of life number and strengthen the government. They were up killing and like looting and because they got the upper hand now they're strong enough. Yeah, so the jihadists inverted commas took this and mentality we're no longer a mecca after the Hydra we're in the face of Medina and Medina, we've been told to kill, kill kill until they say La La La MaMa. This is why they

00:32:54 --> 00:32:57

divided like that. They have this division between hijra.

00:32:59 --> 00:33:07

So the orientation normalcy and then got the idea these Muslims living in our lands in countries that only quiet because they don't have enough power.

00:33:08 --> 00:33:11

If they're given a little bit of power, you know what they're gonna do.

00:33:12 --> 00:33:16

When they get an idea from the Quran from us, we gave them this idea.

00:33:17 --> 00:33:21

Read some of our books from prasa. You'll see we give them this ID.

00:33:23 --> 00:33:26

So when they think about what they call the fifth column,

00:33:27 --> 00:33:29

this is why they got this idea from

00:33:30 --> 00:33:57

they didn't make it out. We gave them this idea. And then you add that to the issues of what I mentioned before Eman is going around saying well we don't trust non Muslims. So how are they going to trust you? And they know that they're saying this we don't trust them? Yeah, so we have that kind of you know hiding in the shades here and then we don't know the thing what they up to Islam nothing like that far away from this idea.

00:33:58 --> 00:33:59


00:34:00 --> 00:34:04

the reality is that the focus Aslan was sending out

00:34:05 --> 00:34:13

when he sent out those who declared war on him when he sent out to battalion nevertheless, then he said to them yeah,

00:34:14 --> 00:34:26

that the leader he said have Taqwa in Allah when you go out there because that's what's going to control how you behave even on the battlefield and be good to the Muslim the army.

00:34:28 --> 00:34:39

Don't treat them like dogs to get respect because your agenda or Captain Yeah. And and begin in the with the name of a law.

00:34:40 --> 00:34:59

Begin with the name of Allah. And in this, these kind of handy he mentioned all this about not chopping down trees, not killing the non combatants, not causing harm here not attacking from the back. Yeah, not abusing this not not mutilating after all these beautiful things in warfare.

00:35:00 --> 00:35:11

Yeah, when people want to run second kill and butcher, ya know, even killing in that kill that in the method which caused the late least bit of torture and pain

00:35:13 --> 00:35:31

as a final necessity as it were. And even at that time, he says, Give them a choice, they have declared the war and you turn up, you don't just attack and file, you still give them a choice to make a peace, three thing to come to Islam, they have a choice as well. They'll suddenly become brothers in Islam.

00:35:32 --> 00:35:45

Yeah, they suddenly become brothers in Islam. And the war's off, they don't have to, they can make a peace treaty, or they can remain in the even in their lands, and agree to now because they've declared the war two pages here.

00:35:47 --> 00:35:57

two pages here, which like the tax because they can't come under the authority of the Muslim state, because they're going to be also defended against attack from others, like citizens.

00:35:59 --> 00:35:59


00:36:01 --> 00:36:25

So that was an alternative. But if they persist, they want to, they don't want any of these options. They don't want to make a truce. They want to fight you and kill you. Because you have no choice as a last resort, then to carry on fighting. With all the other options, the officer said, then hold back from fighting hold back from fighting, if they accept this hold back from fighting don't fight. You see how he's trying at every juncture to avoid the bloodshed.

00:36:27 --> 00:36:38

So you take that at least, you have to put that under that heaviness and the Quran. You can't just take that out of context. When he's saying I've been ordered to fight, you're going to take it another way.

00:36:39 --> 00:36:55

Until they declare, I've been ordered here by the way Coca Cola nurse doesn't mean to kill. It means to find an author and you have to lose the verb in Arabic has a meaning of somebody fighting you and you fighting them.

00:36:56 --> 00:37:01

So the best way to translate ot Allah is I have been ordered to fight back.

00:37:03 --> 00:37:04

You understand?

00:37:05 --> 00:37:08

Fight back those who fight you which fits with the Quran

00:37:10 --> 00:37:14

which fits with the Quran when the verse I mentioned to you before, yeah,

00:37:15 --> 00:37:18

well, Article feasability line Latina pata Luna

00:37:19 --> 00:37:21

fight those in the way of Allah will fighting you.

00:37:23 --> 00:37:32

So God Allah, the word inherent in the meaning is to fight back with somebody who's fighting you, is a two way process, not one way.

00:37:46 --> 00:37:47

And that's in warfare.

00:37:48 --> 00:38:02

The way to understand this relief is with the hurry to Pereda that you may have hatred for people, they may have done all sorts to you in the past. Yeah, the way we understand it, but when they declare Shahada

00:38:04 --> 00:38:07

even they're in the middle of a battle. Can't find them anymore.

00:38:12 --> 00:38:18

Yeah, that's a fit that with the Hadith of the famous Hadith, authentic of Osama bin Zayed

00:38:19 --> 00:38:25

they j w. herefor. was the famous instance of some islands in Haifa linked with this

00:38:34 --> 00:38:36

he was in battle who's the son of enzyme

00:38:43 --> 00:38:51

they the new hi Pisces sun, obviously you sound like Wednesday that told you that the slave of the freed slave of the soul is awesome.

00:38:56 --> 00:38:56


00:38:57 --> 00:39:05

we shouldn't say that because that was changed Islam change that. We don't say that. But he he brought up like a grandson

00:39:06 --> 00:39:07

or son.

00:39:10 --> 00:39:29

Absolutely. He was fighting in battle. Yes. And the person who was fighting which they said I should ally Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah. So he still killed him, is a young man. It was still young, the prophesies to remember on the deathbed made him in charge of the leader of the army.

00:39:30 --> 00:39:34

Anyway, in this instance, he came back unprocess and found out about it

00:39:36 --> 00:39:40

also was very, very angry, very angry.

00:39:41 --> 00:39:55

When he heard, he said, and when he was asked, he said, jasola He only said it to save his life. He said Osama Did you open up his heart and look inside? What will you say on a day of judgment when Allah asked you

00:39:57 --> 00:39:59

and and the Salah said the prophesied kept repeating

00:40:00 --> 00:40:01

Until I felt

00:40:03 --> 00:40:09

it described as one of the worst days of his. He said I wish I'd embraced Islam after this incident.

00:40:11 --> 00:40:11

He felt so bad

00:40:15 --> 00:40:40

and kept on rhetorically repeating what will you say on the day of judgment? How are you going to answer this in the middle? So you see when you put that together with this, and if you get a totally different meaning, different angle to it, in order to fight people, once they until they declare, when they've done that, then their property and blood is safe, you can't carry on killing them.

00:40:41 --> 00:41:02

Yeah, see how tense completely now that is the meaning and not the apparent meaning that you see from it at the beginning. That apparent meaning is the idea of promises and coming around killing and fighting everybody. They combine this idea with another very famous of these. Some of you may have heard of it, but we used to have this thrown around in data Atlas in the 80s.

00:41:03 --> 00:41:05

Remember this idea and we're used to

00:41:07 --> 00:41:24

until you learn about the Hadeeth in later years, but this is still used by these kind of people who think Islam is all about killing, butchering and fighting. These are these reported in the Muslim Ummah and Abu Dhabi it is a famous Hadith in which it is said that the prophet SAW Islam says

00:41:27 --> 00:41:30

boys to be safe Danang and the

00:41:33 --> 00:41:35

wall juillet risky

00:41:37 --> 00:41:38

What do we let

00:41:39 --> 00:41:40


00:41:42 --> 00:41:44

data room Hey

00:41:48 --> 00:41:56

wha Jolla Zillow was cigar Allah man hall for an MRI woman shambhavi comida Hua Minho

00:41:58 --> 00:41:59

in this hadith

00:42:00 --> 00:42:07

it is sent to the Polish awesome said I have been sent near the hour with a sword in my hand

00:42:08 --> 00:42:10

been sent with the sword

00:42:11 --> 00:42:24

yeah when the hour is imminent now the part of him being sent when the hour is imminent comes in a separate view which is authentic my coming and the hour I like this he sets a little less anybody notice it?

00:42:25 --> 00:42:30

My coming he said and the hour was the hour

00:42:31 --> 00:43:12

the final one everything's gonna fade they have judgment is like this. He said, yeah, that's why they say Allah The coming of Rasulullah saw the final messenger is one of the minor signs of the hour. They don't like using the word minor for him, but it's not one of the big major signs he mentioned in howdy flying the company GM must see the job coming up the Messiah and the sun rising from the western side etc etc. Those are seen as a major signs. So that's authentic, but this is not saying that they say they say I have been sent with the sword when the hour is near okay with the sword and my sustenance

00:43:13 --> 00:43:21

was made for me or given to me under the shade of the spears like in the battlefield

00:43:22 --> 00:43:45

Yeah, you see how he's been described being sent with a sword and his sustenance he provided under the under the shadows of the spears under the shadows of the spears and zillah humiliation Yeah, downtrodden This is given to the one who opposes my my order or opposes what I wore I broke

00:43:46 --> 00:44:29

one month the Shabaab economy for a minimum whoever imitates the people there from from amongst them. This added despite is to change it is not authentic, it is very weak. Some people try to make it hustle but this is weak if any part the last part which came in a separate chain mentorship, Bobby calm and follow me know I've talked about this in the hotbar as well, where the images of people is from amongst them. Yeah, this study is also from this, these changes and it is also in reality very weak. Some people made it happen, but some people use its meaning in completely inappropriate application. Reality is this hadith which seems to indicate a show the prophet SAW

00:44:29 --> 00:44:42

Selim as a person battling coming with a sword Spears under the shear he's spending all his time in warfare. That's what he came for to bring wall. So this study, you can forget it. It is not from the mouth of rasulillah

00:44:44 --> 00:44:59

it's very important to remember because people throw this kind of thing around. And this was clarified. Not by the likes of today. This was clarify centuries ago, even though it was collected by Amida old I mean Muslim craftsmen. Yeah, Allah man. What are they thinking around?

00:45:00 --> 00:45:03

That time and the times to come after made it clear that this is not authentic,

00:45:05 --> 00:45:07

although some tried to make it happen.

00:45:09 --> 00:45:16

So that's in a in regards to this. So these are the kinds of evidences and some people.

00:45:17 --> 00:45:46

Actually, I said to you that this is quite a popular opinion that there is something called offensive jihad in Islam, and it came in the letter came in. In fact, one of the major sources I've been using because in the Sierra, I told you was a big research done by Akira Amari, who is more heartless as well. And my teacher, who's on our leading Mahajan in the world says he's a good good level as well. Very good level Mahajan. Yeah.

00:45:47 --> 00:46:05

Who tried to bring the most authentic part of Sierra together based on grand ideas and authentic reports, which is what we've been trying to do in this frequency, as you know, those who've been coming from the beginning. His view actually, his view as well is that there is something called offensive,

00:46:07 --> 00:46:20

offensive war in Islam. I disagree with him entirely. He has no admittance really don't drink anything from crown Sumner and like others, aside from him, and say booty who wrote about
