Jihaad: The Misconceptions Cleared - By Br. Aboo Uways 'Abdullaah Ahmad 'Alee rahimahullah
An excellent admonition repelling the shubuhaat (doubts) that are widespread amongst the average Muslim in relation to 'Jihaad'.
Our noble brother, Aboo Uways explains the varying types of Jihaad; that which is obligatory on every Muslim and that which is obligatory upon the people of a given land. Also, the criterion for Jihaad, it's conditions and understanding the position of the rulers and the ruled.
The lecture contains an inspiring reminder of the widespread ignorance that is commonplace amongst the Muslim ummah, that Muslims from the West to the East are eager to pick up arms and defend the shee'ah but yet there is no concern for 'tasfiyah wat-tarbiyah' (purification and education) in the most basic of affairs.
