    The type of Jihaad in Palestine
    Source: fatwa-online.com,

    Shaykh Abdul Aziz Ibn Baaz (rahimahullah)
    Majmoo' Fataawa wa Maqaalaat Mutanawwi'ah - Volume 4, Page 295
    Majallah ad-Da'wah published 09/08/1409 A.H.

    Question: What is the Islaamic Sharee'ah perspective of the current jihaad of the Palestinians; Is it jihaad in the Path of Allaah, or jihaad for the sake of land and freedom? And is jihaad for the sake of land (and freedom) considered as jihaad in the Path of Allaah?


    Response: It has been confirmed to us by trustworthy and reliable witnesses that the Palestinian intifaadhah (uprising) and those who have stood forth in this are from the most dedicated Muslims there, and that their jihaad is (an) Islaamic (one). This is because they are oppressed by the Jews, and that which is obligatory upon them is to protect their religion and themselves and their families and children and to drive out their enemy from their land with all they are able to of strength.


    And these trustworthy and reliable (witnesses) who joined (the Palestinians) in their jihaad and assisted them in that have informed us of their (the Palestinians') Islaamic enthusiasm and their abidance to applying the Islaamic Sharee'ah amongst them. So that which is obligatory upon the Islaamic countries and the rest of the Muslims is to assist and support them so they can be free of their enemy, so as to return to their land, in accordance with the saying of Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala):


    {O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allaah is with those who are pious}, [Soorah at-Towbah, Aayah 123]


    And His (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) saying:
    {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 Path of Allaah. This is better for you, if you but knew}, [Soorah at-Towbah, Aayah 41]


    And His (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) saying:
    {O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment}
    {That you believe in Allaah and His Messenger (Muhammad sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam), and that you strive hard and fight in the Path of Allaah 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 (Eden) Paradise], that is indeed the great success}

    {And also (He will give you) another (blessing) which you love, help from Allaah (against your enemies) and a near victory. And give glad tidings (O Muhammad sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) to the believers}, [Soorah as-Saff, Aayaat 10-13]


    And the verses with this meaning are many.
    And it is authenticated from the Messenger of Allaah (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) that he said:
    ((Make jihaad against the mushrikoon with your wealth, your selves and your tongues (speech)))


    And because they are oppressed, then it is upon their Muslim brethren to aid them against those who oppress them, as the Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) said:


    ((A Muslim is the brother of a(nother) Muslim; he does not oppress him and nor does he hand him over (to the enemy))), its athenticity is agreed upon by both al-Bukhaaree and Muslim.


    And his (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) saying:
    ((Assist your (Muslim) brother if he is the oppresser or the oppressed)), it was asked:
    "O Messenger of Allaah: (we understand about) assisting him when he is oppressed, so how do we assist him when he is the oppresser?" He (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) said:
    ((Restrain him from oppressing (anyone), for that is asssiting your (Muslim) brother)).


    And the ahaadeeth regarding the obligation of jihaad in the Path of Allaah and assisting the oppressed and deterring the oppresser are very many.
    So we ask Allaah to grant our mujaahideen brethren victory in the Path of Allaah over their enemies in Palestine and elsewhere, and to unite them upon the truth and to grant all the Muslims the ability to assist them and to stand firm against their enemies and to forsake the enemies of Islaam wherever they may be and to descend upon the evil-doing and criminal people/nation (much) suffering, (that) which does not cease, indeed He is the All-Hearing.

    As-salaamu 'alaykum wa rahmatullaah.

    Firstly, jazaak Allaahu khayran, yaa Abaa 'Abdillaah.

    Secondly, in this fatwaa al-'allaamah Ibn Baaz (rahimahullaah) says that there is jihaad and brothers can help the mujaahideen in Falasteen. However, there are also fataawaa about Hamas and their deviation, about the different groups. Fataawaa of Shaykh al-Albaanee (rahimahullaah) about the situation in Falasteen, and also other 'Ulamaa who gave advices etc.

    There are sayings of our 'Ulamaa who are still alive about jihaad on the earth of Allaah. They say that there isn't anywhere legitimate jihaad as prescribed in the sharee'ah. So, what is the whole picture?

    PS: the fatwaa of Shaykh Ibn Baaz was published on 09/08/1409 A.H.

    The words of Shaykh Abdul Aziz Ibn Baaz (rahimahullah) are words of Truth:

    So that which is obligatory upon the Islaamic countries and the rest of the Muslims is to assist and support them so they can be free of their enemy,

    I ask Allah swt to lighten his grave and shower him with mercy.

    Hamas is not an islamic group we can all see that from their tongues and actions.

    The one in bold, do you mean that there isn't any jihad in a country?
    I would say Palestine is Jihad.

    As-salaamu 'alaykum wa rahmatullaah.

    Ahlul-'Ilm, like shaykh al-Albaanee (rahimahullaah) and the ones among those who are still alive of the likes of shaykh al-muhaddith 'Abdul-Muhsin al-'Abbaad (hafidhahullaah), say that there are many groups but no legitimate jihaad under one banner of a Muslim leader against the kuffaar. However, they have spoken about the fact that the Muslims are obliged to defend themselves, possessions and honour, so this is not the issue.

    That of which the 'Ulamaa speak are the different groups of Muslims who have leaders for each group and who can't even work together, thus causing fitnah between each other. No doubt, there were times were clear legitimate jihaad according to sharee'ah took place, like in Afghanistan, Chechnya, Bosnia, Kashmeer, 'Iraaq,... However the situations changed and so did the hukm (ruling).

    The point is, shaykh Ibn Baaz (rahimahullaah) said that there is jihaad in Palestine, meaning fighting along with the Muslim leader. Now we do not find any jihaad according to sharee'ah there, and 'Ulamaa have spoken about this.

    So I guess that these words of Ibn Baaz (rahimahullaah) were uttered at the time when there was indeed legitimate jihaad in Palestine under the leadership of one Muslim leader.

    The takfeeriyyoon accuse the Salafiyyoon of being against jihaad fee sabeelillaah while even the Salafee 'Ulamaa have done jihaad. For example shaykh Jameel ar-Rahmaan al-Afghaanee (rahimahullaah), shaykh Aboo Anas, shaykh al-'Utaybee and many others, may Allaah preserve them. So the issue isn't the benefit and greatness of jihaad, but how it is done and when it is done.

    I ask Allaah to make the Muslims firm in Islaam, to unite the people of knowledge, the hukkaam (leaders) and other Muslims upon one path, the path of Rasoolullaah, the Salaf as-Saalih (pious predecessors). I ask Allaah to grant power to the Muslim leaders and enable them to proclaim jihaad against the kuffaar and let the Muslims fight the disbelievers who are at war with Islaam and the Muslims. Wa billaahit-tawfeeq (and with Allaah lies success).

    Wallaahu Ta'aalaa a'lam.

    As-salaamu 'alaykum.

    I am not twisting any words. I told you he said that in the past, and shaykh al-Albaanee and others said that there is no jihaad (how it should be according to sharee'ah)! So we have to look at the whole picture.

    Do not accuse your brothers of that which they have nothing to do with!

    Brother there are even those ignorant people who even said the jihad in Somalia was invalid in 2006 eventhough we had an ameer, one flag, one organization, i believe the ulema in somalia said it was jihad. but sadly mever did i hear one famous shaykh who have big influence over others say anything abt somalia eventhough we had sharia and peace for the first time in 16 years. and most importantly the scholars spoke when the kuffar made a ''Somali Government''.:SMILY335:

    Salamu alaykum

    It is an obligation upon all of us to study our deen first. To know tawheed and akheeda. To know what La illahe illalah means as many muslims are ignorant of that. The prophet :saw: tought the companions for he first 13 years in mekkah tawheed until they had a firm akeedah and nothing could shake it. After the 13 years in mekkah of suffering, torture, injustice, they were given the right of performing hijjrah to medina where Allah gave the the permisson to fight. Today, Allah knows best but if you took the whole muslim ummah of 1.6 billion, How many Pray?(i could say maybe 1% which maybe leaves 99% who dont) out of that 1%, how many pray and know the pure tawheed (meaning, they dont wear ammulets for protection, dont make duah to people in graves, dont swear by quran, family members etc.)? So, now we are deviding even the 1% even further. So, now that there are small amount of people that do not make shirk but then maybe their prayer is not correct and not according to the sunnah of the prophet. So, maybe there is a handful of people who really understand the tawheed, akeedah and know the sunnah of the prophet :saw:.

    So, is really jihad the first obligation or clean ourselves from Shirk of any sorts, gain knowledge of halal and haram as the companions were thought the first 13 years of mekkan period? The prophet :saw: in a narration said that who ever seeks the path of knowledge Allah will make the path to jannah easy for him.

    Therefore the knowledge (ailm) come before the actions. The actions do not come before the knowledge. You dont pray and then you say you will believe in ALlah. No, first you have the pure monotheistic belief in Allah (tawheed) and then you perform the outward actions.

    That is why when jibreel a.s came to the prophet :saw: asked him first about imaan (faith) which is inward belief, and then about islaam (which are the outward actions of faith).

    Therefore, muslims really have to learn who ALlah is, His beatifull name and attributes, worship Him sincerely without any partners according to the way of His prophet :saw:, and then when the call to defend this religion comes, there will be people with strong imaan to answer that call. The companions fought with imaan and not numbers. Their imaan was that strong that some would say that even if jahannm or jannah were brought to them, it would not increase nor decrease their imaan any more than it is.

    Therefore, lets learn and gain knowledge (first imporance) of this religion and know who our Lord really is (not just saying there is not God but Allah) which is a improper statement as well, but to know that when we say Allah is our Rabb that He is the Khalliq (creator), al-Melik, Al-Maalik (the only King,Owner), al-Mudabir (the One who is in control of everything).

    Just thought that this is a great importance that many muslims do not know and it has brought great consiquences.

    Allah knows best

    To encounter our enemies whether they be zionists, Hindus, the west, india and China Muslim nations must have to be politically united into one country insha Allah. Without this we are doomed to further disrgrace.
    The borders that divide our nation cut our ummah like knives and thus, our body is broken into peices.
    ask youself, can a body function properly when it is cut into peices ?

    I dont think so.
    It is no more less than death.

    Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakatuh

    You can not compare the situation today to that.

    Firstly, the Sahaba had the Prophet Muhammad (salallahu alayhi wa salam) with them.

    The Sahaba and the early generation of Muslims were people of Tawheed. They were people who did not enter into Shirk or Kufr. They were united upon Islaam.

    Today, the situation is that various callers call to a unity where major issues such as Aqeedah are totally ignored. That is why you will see cooperation between the Raafidah Shi'ah who do Shirk, kufr, who go against the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (salalahu alayhi wa salam) and who curse the Sahaba and the Mother of the Believers.

    Is this the kind of cooperation that Muslims who have Ghierah, honour would want?

    - Jihad is with us until the day of judgement, - the issue is, the Muslims are weak today.

    As for protecting our Muslim brothers and sisters, then this is something obligatory, and we must work hard to actually do something about it.

    Shaykh Hussain aal Shaykh, the Imaam and Khatieb of Masjid al Nabawi made a very good speech which is here in TTI.. that addresses these problems, I would ask people to listen to that or read it.. and not to just jump to conclusions.
