OF JIHAD: UNDERSTANDING THE OBLIGATION – SECOND EDITION
years English speaking Muslims have been interested in, speaking and
hearing about, and waging Jihad for the sake of Allah. However,
except for those who are able to understand the Arabic language,
knowledge of the topic has been somewhat difficult to come by. This
due to there being so few works available that comprehensively deal
with the subject in the English language, despite its exhortations,
rulings, and stories occupying so much of the Qur'an, Sunnah, and
classical Islamic works.
the title of the work suggests, this book focuses on the Fiqh
(jurisprudence) of Jihad, relying on the Qur'an, the Sunnah, and the
opinions of the classical scholars of Islam to provide an insight
into the related rulings that govern this topic of critical
importance in the life of the believer.
second edition completes the work, including chapters 17-33 that were
originally intended to be published as Part 2 of the work. Thus, the
book now contains in excess of 700 pages, containing chapters
detailing the definition of Jihad, the stages of its legislation, the
conditions that make it obligatory, the categories of people fought,
collateral damage, rulings regarding prisoners, Ghanimah, covenants,
assassination, kidnapping, sabotage, and more...
