Jihad is justified

Reader comment on item: Jihad and the Professors

Submitted by Waheed (United Kingdom), May 16, 2003 at 06:58

Calling and acting on jihad at this particualr time is totaly justified. America and Britain are involved and encouraging the killing, torture and rape of our Muslim brothers and sisters. So if it is not the right time for calling off jihad, then when is it right.

It is written in ahadith(to the nearest meaning);

the messenger of Allah(peace and blessing be upon him) said;

That a time will come when the non-muslims will come togehter and eat off a plate like hungry men. The food will represent the muslims.

and he (peace and blessing be upon him) was asked;

"will this be because the muslims will be small in number?"

and he (peace and blessing be upon him) replied;

"No, the muslims will be great in number, but they will have love for the world and hatred for death."


Ask yourself this is this not happening at this very time?!

In places like Palestine and Kashmir etc. Muslims are being oppressed. They are being murdered and raped. So do they not have the right to defend themselves?

If someone broke into your house and starting killing your family, what would you do?

Would you stand aside and say. "the whole world will call me a terrorist so i will stand there and let it happen." NO -- you would not. You wouldl fight until your death.

So don't condemn people who are fighting for their own and their families' lives.
