کیا جہاد ریاست ہی کرے گی یا کوئی گروہ اپنے طور پر جہاد کر سکتا ہے

اگر کسی مسلم معاشرے پر ظلم و ستم ہو رہا ہے او رجہاد ہو سکتا ہے تو کیا جہاد ریاست ہی کرے گی یا کوئی گروہ اپنے طور پر منظم ہو کر اس طرح کا جہاد کر سکتا ہے؟

Militant Islam

I am a Muslim from India. I want to know why has the history of the followers of Islam been so bloody and continues to be so. It pains me to see my fellow followers of the faith getting killed every single day, somewhere in the world.Is acceptance of change not a part of Islam? Is the message of peace not understood and propogated by our religious leaders? Is forgiveness not a bigger force compared to vengeance in our religion?

Hajj Or Jihad?

There is a ḥadīth in the Sahih of Bukhari which says that hajj has greater status than jihad. Does this ḥadīth not contradict all other hadiths on jihad? The Prophet (sws) put jihad third in good deeds after the salah (prayer) and serving parents.

Obligation To Wage Jihad

In a video-clip (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-N4Wf_RR-0), Mawlānā Waḥīd al-Dīn Khān has claimed that, since killing of non-combatants is not permissible in Islam, the scope of jihad has almost ended in the nuclear area as war can escalate into a situation where killing innocents may become inevitable. Also, he believes that only defensive (in self-defence) is permissible and, that too, only at the level of the state. In an essay of his “Ṣabr kē us pār,” he advises Muslims to suppress their desires and focus only on their responsibilities. What are your views n this regard?

Regarding The Jihad Of The Companions Of The Prophet (sws)

My question is regarding Jihad of the companions of prophet. I am convinced about the stance of Mr Ghamidi that Prophet (sws) in fact killed the mushrikeen of that time after "itamam-e-hujjat". But I wonder that itamam-e-hujjat can be accepted for individuals who were the direct addressees of Prophet (sws), as he (sws) totally convinced them regarding the message of Islam and they deliberately denied the truth. But what about the nations (i.e. Persians and Romans) which were just sent letters. Can "itamam-e-hujjah" be done just by sending letters? I believe that saying that "itamam-e-hujjah was completed on those nations just by sending letters, is a weak argument. May be my knowledge is not complete. Kindly shed some light in detail as I and my friend are having difficulty in understanding this.

Some people are of the view that hizb-ullah and taliban have actually defeated Israel and US by engaging them in war for several years and at the same time recently Israel withdrew from one of the wars against hizbullah. Now the jihad they are doing does not satisfy all the conditions of jihad, then how they are winning the battles, should we consider it that it is God's help (nusrat-e-ilahi). And can we say that today Israel, India and US are doing persecution and if we were able then jihad was obligatory to be declared by our state? Kindly answer in detail about both the questions especially the first one.

Itmam A Hujjah And The Jihad Of The Companions

I have following questions regarding the answer you have provided me regarding Itamam-ul-Hujjah on neighboring countries.

1) I think the answer you have provided is not sufficient. I still cannot understand that how we can assume that just on the basis of Itamam-ul-Hujjah which was done in Makkah/Madina, it was also done on Faris and Rome? I mean that there is evident difference between itamam-ul-hujjah on the people of Makkah/Madina where first every question was answered directly and then only the punishment was given. Whereas in the case of neighboring countries, only letters and then later an army was sent by only giving leverage to individuals who ask for asylum. To elaborate further if I make an analogy, if for example in current times, a prophet comes in India, and does itamam-ul-hujjah there, punishes the kafirs there and then write a letter that I have done this in India and now the same will happen to you in Pakistan if you will negate what I am preaching. Will it be considered as itamam-ul-hujjah?
2) Were the letters written to the neighboring countries before the punishment to the direct addressees or after that? Could you please provide the content of letter?
3) Any evidence from the sources of history that the message of Islam was delivered in its ultimate form to the people in neighboring countries? Like people accepting Islam, or Quran or any hadith mentioning that those people are also doing kufr?
4) This is the question which I asked in my last email as well but could not get answer. "Can we say that today Israel, India and US are doing persecution and if we were able then Jihad was obligatory to be declared by our state?"
5) My next question is regarding the current issue of Cartoons on Facebook. What should be the approach of a person using Facebook, should we deactivate our accounts or should we defend it by being there?

Usama’s (rta) Army

The prophet (SWS) ordered the army of Usama to move to the boarders for war. This took place when the prophet was already suffering from the illness that resulted in his passing away. The historical records are evident that:

1. Even when the prophet was in his difficult moments of illness he did not asked the army to stop.

2. All the major pioneers of Muhajers and Ansar were in the army, including Abubakr and Umar.

My question is:

Assuming that the prophet knew that he was passing away (as apparent from many historical documents), why he wanted to send the closest companions (and in fact the potential candidates for Khelafat) far away? I was thinking that in such circumstances a wise decision would be to keep the potential candidates for khelafat close and in access. This is particularly important if we agree that Shora is the basis of the affairs after the holy prophet.

Imagine if the army had prepared a couple of days earlier and they had all gone to war. Then the prophet would pass away while almost none of his close companions where there. The main companions of the prophet were absent only for a short time and the leadership was going to be given to people (Ansar) who might not have been accepted later by the rest (Quraysh). What would have happened if the companions where far away near the boarders and then the remaining people wanted to choose a Khlifa among themselves.

Please explain the idea behind sending the army in that critical time.

On a side note, please also let me know the status of two companions, Abubakr and Ali with regrad to the army. It appears like Abubakr left the camp of the army soon and went to his place out of Madinah. Was this because he was excluded from the army by the prophet when he was ordered to lead the prayers? As for Ali, his name is mentioned no where with regard to Usama army. It appears as if he never joined the army, was he also excluded?

Jihad For The Propagation Of Islam

Spreading Islam By The Sword

In the early period of Islam, we find that the Islamic rule was extended by the Companions (rta) of the Prophet (sws) to a large part of the world. They conquered Persia, Rome, Egypt and many other countries of their times. My question is that why did they impose Islam on these countries? Why were they not given the option of accepting Islam if they wanted to?
