A RESEARCH PAPER ON THE JURISPRUDENCE OF JIHAD: MASĪRAH SHAHR: “UNICITY OF GOD AND FIGHTING.

A Research Paper on the Jurisprudence of Jihad: Masīrah Shahr: “Unicity of God and Fighting: The Jurisprudence of Jihād”.on August 29, 2017.By Wade A. Bailey:Social Cultural Worker, author, journalist, studied Social Case Work, Anthropology, and Psychology at the Hanze University of Applied Sciences in Groningen, Netherlands.This Paper is a part of a teaching series from foundation Soualiga Youth on Jihad. Iam a senior researcher at the foundation.

Western media, counter terrorism ‘experts’, governments and other institutions are increasingly pushing the narrative, that jihadism is mainly a criminal problem ignoring the belief and value system that jihadist’s draw their ideology from, that system is Islam, ignoring that fact has and will continue to lead to chaos. There are explicit Koranic references to jihad, and it is part and parcel of Islamic history and culture. The following is from Masīrah Shahr: 
Unicity of God and Fighting: The Jurisprudence of Jihād”: ‘  This treatise is based on the six part lecture series entitled: „Tawhīd wa‟l-Qitāl‟,delivered by Shaykh Hārith an-Nadhāri, may Allāh accept him. It is centered around the Hadīth: The Messenger of Allāh said: “I have been ordered to fight against the people until they testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allāh and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allāh…” Based upon this Hadīth, the Shaykh has derived various benefits relating to Tawhīd and Jihād. In addition, a number of the legal rulings (Ahkām2) pertaining to Jihād have been included within the Shaykh‟s lectures on this topic.


The significance of this topic cannot be overstated, especially for the Mujāhidīn. As it is Wājib (compulsory) for the Muslim today to wage Jihād, it also becomes Wājib for him to have knowledge of the Islamic rulings surrounding Jihād, and train and prepare himself to engage in Jihād. As Allāh says: And prepare against them whatever you are able… 3 Likewise, the principle in Fiqh states, „that which is required to fulfill a Wājib is itself Wājib,‟ therefore in order for the Muslim to avoid being like those who Allāh described as those who are astray 4 he must precede his actions with knowledge.
Due to the efforts of those who wish to undermine and distort the pristine teachings of Islām, the worship of Jihād and all of the issues surrounding it, have been largely obscured from the Muslims. We find that Islāmic books and lectures are filled with every issue, big and small, detailing the intricacies and finer points of every act of „Ibādah under the sun, however, the Muslim is hard pressed to find a single book or lecture giving Jihād the justice it deserves, especially in the English language. This is despite the command of Allāh: So fight, [O Muhammad], in the cause of Allāh; you are not held responsible except for yourself. And incite the believers…  Once the Prophet migrated to Madinah, he waged Jihād until he returned to Allāh, and likewise, his companions raised and carried on his blessed banner until Allāh opened for them the kingdoms and treasures of the Byzantines and the Persians. The early believers were the deepest in knowledge and closest in their connection to Allāh the Exalted, and they never left Jihād or abandoned their longing for Martyrdom in the cause of Allāh. So much so that Allāh‟s Messenger, the one who was free from sin, even ardently desired Martyrdom for himself, despite the fact that Allāh had promised to protect him from all of his enemies.


 He wished, “In the name of whom Muhammad‟s soul is in His Hand, I wish I could fight in the cause of Allāh and then be killed, and then fight and then be killed, and then fight and then be killed.”  However, with the deepest regret, we find that many of the Muslims today wishes and aspirations could not be further from those of the Prophet and his trustworthy companions.

ISIS FAR FROM DEFEATED.

The false narrative crafted by the Trump administration and other western governments, that the Islamic State was all but defeated was being rebutted by their own intelligence agencies, since 2018. Even the CIA and other such agencies, consistently refuted the narrative put forth, by their own governments that the ISIS threat no longer existed.  That narrative is increasingly ringing hollow, as yet another headline from the corporate media shows, the following is the latest from one such outlet, The Jerusalem Post.   

‘Three years after ISIS appeared to be on its last legs in Iraq and Syria it has seized a city in Mozambique. The city is called Mocimboa da Praia and now there are fears it may have a foothold that is growing in the country. This slow process of ISIS radicalization has taken place for a year or more. However, it was largely dismissed as fear mongering. Now the group has infiltrated, and some are concerned that it may be on the cusp of a larger offensive. Much like in the ISIS offensive in Iraq in the summer of 2014 the attacks in southeast Africa have displaced hundreds of thousands. There are questions about how the port city might be re-taken by security forces.  The port now affects the whole of Cabo Delgado province. This is in northern Mozambique. The International Committee of the Red Cross has warned of a humanitarian crisis that may grow. While some still argue that ISIS is not actually causing or driving the war here, but it is instead just inequality and poverty, the kinds of images from Mozambique look like the same Islamist insurgencies in Nigeria or Somalia or other areas. While the international community is distracted by COVID-19 and major powers like the US no longer play a role in coordinating efforts like concentrating on these kinds of emergencies, ISIS can thrive in the margins.’

Shekau threatens African nations: Reiterates desire to establish Sharia.

Three days after Boko Haram released a video showing them killing three men allegedly working for the Nigerian government,  Leader Abubaker Shekau, has appeared in a new video threatening world leaders and disputing the Cameroonian government’s claim that it has defeated the terror group.
 
The 27-minute footage also showed Shekau thanking his followers. He displayed identity cards, arms, ammunition and other equipment purportedly seized from the Cameroonian Army.
 
He also ordered his fighters to remain steadfast, adding that the sect will not back down until Sharia is established in Benin, Cameroon, Chad, Niger, Nigeria and Mali.
 
Video Translation: 
 
”Let me speak briefly in Hausa language, Allah’s help towards us made us to continue fighting, our brothers too fought along Cameroon-Nigerian border. But you kept lying to the people that you have killed 60 of our people, that you succeeded in arresting 20 of our men. That you even rescued 5000 of your people.
 
”Why all these lies? Paul Biya, why are you lying? Is this how to convince your masters, the white men who are pigs and children of monkies?
 
”Lies! Lies every day, you better be careful, Paul Biya because you are not fighting Shekau but God. It would have been easy for you to fight Shekau not God. This thing is beyond your imagination even though you underrated our strength you cannot joke with the holy Quran, prophet’s hadith and the religion of Allah. No! No! No!
 
”Buhari, I’m very much sure that you have learned your lessons by now. You have really learned your lessons but you can still continue if you like. Remember that nobody has ever done bad and gotten away with it.
 
”By Allah, all your deception and lies to Nigerians that you are doing them good will not help you. Following the steps of America, Britain or practising democracy and educating children with Western education will equally not do you good.
 
”I rather not wish you bad but let me urge you to seek Allah’s forgiveness and repentance. Accept the real teaching of the Islam by not only depending on fasting, salat, zakkat and Hajj.
 
”It’s not my saying because religion is ideology which is based on practicing the Quran and its laws. I better not make too much talk. Niger Republic President Muhammadu Yusufu you are a liar. You can’t dare my students and if I rise against you it will be difficult for you to face me.
 
”Just remember that as long as we are Muslims and we practice the injunction of the Holy Quran we will be powerful. This is not something you can play with. Stop saying Boko Haram people are jobless because your propaganda will not help you in the presence of Allah.”
 
This is my warning to you all. By the way, this message was meant for my brothers in Islam  to remind them to remain resilient and dedicated towards the struggle. I assured them that the struggle is not shaken or weakened in anyway.
 
All the explosions in Maiduguri are carried out by us and we will continue to detonate bombs. In fact, you will never have rest of mind until you accept the holy Quran.:
