Where do you stand?

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

First my heart and compassion goes out to the victims, families and friends of the soldiers so viciously attacked by the TERRORIST at Ft. Hood. Yes, he is a TERRORIST!!!!!!!!

The politically correct morons in our government, press and society are doing physical harm to themselves trying to find new terms and excuses to describe the $^*@!% that deliberately killed and injured innocent people while shouting ‘allahu akhbar’. Nah, couldn’t be remotely affiliated with or identified as a muslim extremist. He’s a brainwashed moron of the first order, a religious nutjob, a criminal, a murderer, and a whiney little bitch that bullies and kills innocent people to get his way (guess he won’t have to be deployed now). But in the muslim world he is held up as a hero and shining example of the fine jihadist tradition. “Pay attention kiddies, we want you to go die while we sit back and watch from a safe cave.”

Major ‘Moron’ (I will not promote the use or memory of his name) was a follower of a radical imam who penned the following: (most of the commentary is removed, you can upload the entire PDF here.)  44 ways to support jihad

44 ways of supporting Jihad

Jihad is the greatest deed in Islam and the salvation of the ummah is in practicing it. In times like these, when Muslim lands are occupied by the kuffar, when the jails of tyrants are full of Muslim POWs, when the rule of the law of Allah is absent from this world and when Islam is being attacked in order to uproot it, Jihad becomes obligatory on every Muslim. Jihad must be practiced by the child even if the parents refuse, by the wife even if the husband objects and by the one indebt even if the lender disagrees.

Dear brothers and sisters the issue is urgent since today our enemy is neither a nation nor a race. It is a system of kufr with global reach. The kuffar today are conspiring against us like never before. So could we be heading towards the great battle between the Romans and the Muslims – Al Malhamah – which the Prophet (saaws) spoke about?

Again, the point needs to be stressed: Jihad today is obligatory on every capable Muslim. So as a Muslim who wants to please Allah it is your duty to find ways to practice it and support it. Following are 43 ways for the brothers and sisters to support Jihad fi sabeelillah:

1 – Having the right intention 

You must make the intentions of joining the ranks of the mujahideen. The Messenger of Allah says:
“Whoever dies and has not fought or intended to fight has died on a branch of hypocrisy” (Related by Muslim)

A sign that an intention of a person is true is whether they are preparing for Jihad or not. Allah says:
“And if they had intended to go forth, they would have prepared for it”. (9:46).

The conditions for Jihad al Dafi’ (the defensive Jihad) are five as stated by scholars such as Abu Qudamah: Islam, puberty, sanity, financial ability, and to be free of physical disabilities. If a person lacks the financial ability and doesn’t find anyone to finance him or suffers from an illness or a disability that excuses him from Jihad then a sign of the true intention of such a person is that he is sad that he is exempted from Jihad. Allah says about the ones who could not afford the expenses of joining in the battle of Tabuk:
“Nor [is there blame] upon the those who, when they came to you that you might give them mounts, you said, “I can find nothing for you to ride upon.” They turned back while there eyes overflowed with tears out of grief that they could not find something to spend [for the cause of Allah]” (9-92)


2 – Praying to Allah to award you with martyrdom


The Messenger (saaws) says: “Whoever sincerely asks Allah to award him with martyrdom would be given the rewards of martyrs even if he dies on his bed”
(Related by Muslim)

Asking Allah to die as a shaheed pleases Allah because it shows him that you are willing to give your life for him. But you need to be careful not to be merely paying lip service. A person who truly asks for shahadah would respond to the call of Jihad whenever he hears it and would eagerly search for death in the path of Allah.

The reason why the enemies of Allah succeeded in defeating some Muslims and taking over their land is because they have lost their love for martyrdom. The Messenger of Allah (saaws) says:
“Nations will attack you like a group of people eating from a plate. The sahabah said: “Is that because we will be few in numbers?” He said: “No, you will be numerous but you will be like the foam of the sea, and Allah will take away from the hearts of your enemies  the fear from you and Allah will cast in your hearts “wahan”” They said: “What is “wahan” O Messenger of Allah?” He said: “The love of this world and the hatred of death”
(Related by Abu Dawud).

Our culture of martyrdom needs to be revived because the enemy of Allah fears nothing more than our love of death.


3 – Jihad with your wealth


The financial Jihad has preceded the physical Jihad in every verse except one. This is to point out to us the importance of the Jihad of wealth because Jihad depends on it. In other words, no money no Jihad, and Jihad needs lots of it. That is why according to Al Qurtubi in his tafseer he states that the reward for money given as Sadaqah is multiplied by ten, but the reward for money spent in Jihad is multiplied by 700!

Allah says: “The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed which grows seven spikes; in each spike is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies [His reward] for whom He wills.” (2:261)

Probably the most important contribution the Muslims of the West could do for Jihad is making Jihad with their wealth since in many cases the mujahideen are in need of money more than they are in need of men. As Sheikh Abdullah Azzam puts it: “Men are in need of Jihad and Jihad is in need of money.”

4 – Fundraising for the Mujahideen


5 – Financing a Mujahid


6 – Taking care of the family of a Mujahid


Taking care of the family of the mujahid could be by protecting them, tending to their needs, providing them with financial assistance and protecting their honor.

The Messenger of Allah (saaws) says: Anyone of you who takes care of the family and wealth of a mujahid will receive half the reward of the mujahid (Muslim)


7 – Sponsoring the family of a shaheed


8 – Sponsoring the families of the prisoners of war


9 – Paying your zakah to the Mujahideen


10 – Contributing to the medical needs of the Mujahideen


The Mujahideen are in great need of any medical assistance they can get. They need physicians, they need hospitals and clinics that would open their doors to them and they need medicine. There are hundreds of thousands of Muslim physicians and nevertheless we hear many stories of injured Mujahideen who suffered from simple wounds but because of the absence of medical help they had to suffer in agony until they died.  Those Muslims who studied medicine and claim that they are doing it for the sake of Allah and to benefit the Muslims, we say to them: Where are you?

It is said that Khattaab – the great Muslim commander in Chechnya – was injured in a battle and his brothers found no Muslim doctor to take care of him so they had to take him to the Red Cross and have them treat him under gun point!

Muslim health care workers have a great responsibility and their contribution to Jihad is indispensable. In fact their rewards could be even greater than those of the fighters.


11 – Providing Moral support and encouragement for the Mujahideen


12 – Defending the Mujahideen and standing up for them


13 – Fighting the lies of the Western Media


The perceptions of many Muslims are formed by the Western media. Allah says: “O you who have believed, if there comes to you a disobedient one (fasiq) with information, investigate, lest you harm a people out of ignorance and become, over what you have done, regretful” (49:6)

So what about when the news is coming from a kafir rather than a fasiq?! The danger of the Western media stems from the fact that it puts on the cloak of truth and objectivity when in reality it is no more than the mouthpiece of the devil. Can’t you see that the Western media is constantly trying to underplay the atrocities committed by the West while exaggerating the violations – which are few and far in between – committed by Muslims? Can’t you see how the Western media succeeded in presenting the awlyaa’ (friends) of Allah, the ones who are fighting in His cause, as the followers of evil, while it presents the Pharaoh of this day and his armies as the army of  good? The Western media is so good in its deception that its lies pass on a wide section of the Muslim ummah.

The fact is that this media demonizes the Mujahideen, spreads lies about them, blows out of proportion their mistakes, tries to sow the seeds of disunity amongst them, attempts to ruin the reputations of their leaders, and ignores or demonizes the scholars of truth when on the other hand, it glorifies and promotes the scholars of falsehood.

So my dear brothers and sisters part of your duty is to campaign amongst Muslims to raise their awareness regarding this issue. You should encourage them to be careful and critical of the Western media. A Muslim should not believe Western sources unless they are confirmed by a trustworthy Muslim one. I say a “trustworthy” Muslim source because the verse was warning us from accepting the news of a disobeying Muslim. Now that is not to say that we should not believe the media in anything it says even in its weather forecasts! No, what we are saying is that you should not believe what they say about Islam and Muslims. A media source that could otherwise be very objective and truthful could become a fabricator when it comes to covering news on Muslims. That is how the disbelievers dealt with Muslims since the dawn of history…and there is no reason for us to believe why that would change.


14 – Exposing the hypocrites


The hypocrites represented a great danger to the Muslim community during the time of the Prophet, and they still do. The Messenger of Allah would fight them by exposing their lies. If the battle with the kuffar was primarily a battle of swords, the battle against the hypocrites was primarily a battle of words. Since the hypocrites hide behind the cloak of religion to spread their poisonous ideas, the way to fight them is by revealing the truth and exposing their lies. Your weapon against them is Quran and Sunnah.

Some of these hypocrites could be very charismatic. They could appear to be very impressive, but they are fake. Allah says: “And when you see them, their forms please you, and if they speak, you listen to their speech. They are as if they were pieces of wood propped up – they think that every shout is against them. They are the enemy, so beware of them. May Allah destroy them; how are they deluded?” (63:4)

The fake scholars and deviant ideologies need to be exposed for what they are.


15 – Encouraging others to fight Jihad


Inviting others to do good is an encouraged act of worship since it falls under enjoining good and forbidding evil. In addition to that, encouraging others to participate in Jihad was an act of worship we were specifically asked to do.


Allah says: “O Prophet, urge the believers to battle.” (8:65) and He says: “So fight, [O Muhammad], in the cause of Allah; you are not held responsible except for yourself. And encourage the believers [to join you] that perhaps Allah will restrain the might of those who disbelieve. And Allah is greater in might and stronger in [exemplary] punishment.” (4:84)


16 – Protecting the Mujahideen and preserving their secrets

The enemies of Allah will try to recruit Muslims to infiltrate Islamic work. They will tell them that we are doing this to protect the Muslims. They may carry along with them scholars who would approve that. Part of your role in protecting the Mujahideen is by warning the Muslim community that spying on a Muslim for a non-Muslim is nothing less than kufr.

Allah says: “And whoever is an ally of them among you – then indeed, he is one of them.” (5:51)


17 – Praying for the Mujahideen


18 – Following the news of Jihad and spreading it


Following the news of Jihad and the mujahideen is important because

It keeps your attachment to Jihad alive.

It strengthens your belongingness to the ummah.

It encourages you to join Jihad when you see the heroic acts of the Mujahideen.

It kindles your desire for martyrdom when you see the courage of martyrs.

Those who follow the news of the Mujahideen will see how Allah is protecting his servants and guiding them towards victory. They will see how the ummah is heading towards the era of Islam under the leadership of: “al Ta’ifah al Mansoorah” mentioned in the hadiths of Rasulullah (saaws).

Reading history or Fiqh books on Jihad provides you with the theory. Following the news of the mujahideen provides you with practical examples of how our brothers are applying the theory in today’s world. It provides you with something tangible, something real.


The news of Jihad is the news of the conflict between good and evil which has existed since the time of Adam and will continue until the end of time. Following the developments of this conflict brings Quran into light. When you read Quran with this awareness you would have a more engaged relationship with the book of Allah than a person who is living in the seclusion of his ivory tower. This engagement with the book of Allah reaches its height when you yourself are engaged in this conflict by joining the ranks of the mujahideen.


I need to repeat what I mentioned in point 13 that you should only spread authentic information from authentic sources. Because spreading rumors is an attribute of the hypocrites: Allah says: “And when there comes to them something [information] about public security or fear, they spread it around. But if they had referred it back to the Messenger or to those of authority among them, then the ones who [can] draw correct conclusions from it would have known about it.” (4:83)

19 – Spreading the writings of the Mujahideen and their scholars


20 – The issuance of fatwas supporting the Mujahideen


21 – Providing the scholars and Imams with information and news about the mujahideen


22 – Physical fitness


The Messenger of Allah (saaws) says:

“The strong believer is better and more beloved to Allah than the weak believer and there is good in both” (Related by Muslim)

Physical fitness is part of the preparation for Jihad. What Jihad needs is not body builders. What Jihad needs is mujahideen who have the ability to walk for long hours, to run for long distances (important for guerrilla warfare), to sprint (important for urban warfare), and to climb mountains. The mujahid needs to be able to perform all of the afore-mentioned while carrying a weight. In Jihad lands such as Bosnia and Chechnya unfit brothers represented a burden on the mujahideen because they would slow down the whole group. Also the unfit can more easily fall in the hands of the enemy. So endurance exercises should take precedence over exercise for strength and flexibility.

Even if a Muslim is not going to fight, physical fitness is still important. For example, a fit person can withstand prison and torture more than a person who is not. The early Muslims were fit since they led a military lifestyle. The companion Amr bin al Aas who opened Egypt in the time of Umar and was appointed as its governor used to say in Jumu’ah khutbah:
“I don’t want to see any one of you gaining weight while your horse is losing weight. If I see that I will reduce your salaries accordingly”

So dear brothers, exercising with the right intention is an act of worship. Our sisters are not exempt from this. They also need to be fit and the Muslim community needs to work out halal alternatives for the sisters to exercise.


23 – Arms training


Preparing for Jihad is obligatory since Jihad today is obligatory and the sharia rule states that: “Whatever is needed for an obligatory act becomes obligatory”
Arms training is an essential part of preparation for Jihad.

Allah says: “And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you don’t know but Allah knows” (8:60) The Messenger of Allah  (saaws) said regarding this verse: “Power is marksmanship, power is marksmanship” (Related by Muslim)

The issue is so critical that if arms training is not possible in your country then it is worth the time and money to travel to another country to train if you can.


24 – First aid training


In many situations the mujahideen have no access to hospitals. In such situations first aid becomes the only available option. In addition to first aid brothers and sisters need to get any medical training that would be relevant to the tough conditions of Jihad. This needs to be determined by brothers and sisters who are in the medical field in coordination with brothers who have an experience in Jihad.


25 – Learning the fiqh of Jihad


26 – Protecting the Mujahideen and supporting them:


27 – Developing the Aqeedah of Walaa’ and Baraa’


28 – Fulfilling our responsibilities towards the Muslim POW


29 – WWW Jihad


The internet has become a great medium for spreading the call of Jihad and following the news of the Mujahideen. Some ways in which the brothers and sisters could be “internet Mujahideen” is by contributing in one or more of the following ways:  

Establishing discussion forums that offer a free, uncensored medium for posting information relating to Jihad.

Establishing email lists to share information with interested brothers and sisters.

Posting or emailing Jihad literature and news.

Setting up websites to cover specific areas of Jihad, such as: Mujahideen news, Muslim POWs, and Jihad literature.


30 – Raising our children on the love of Jihad and the Mujahideen


Our children need to be raised up with the love of Jihad and the mujahideen.  The stories we narrate to them need to stem from our rich Jihad history. We should have them grow up with Ali bin Abi Talib, Khalid bin al Waleed, Abu Ubaidah, Sad bin Abi Waqqas, Muhammad al Fatih, Muhammad bin al Qasim and Salahudin. Their role models should be the heroes of today’s Jihad. On the other hand they should learn to despise Pharaoh, Qaroon, and Abu Jahl as well as today’s Pharaohs, Qaroons and Abu Jahls. Our children should not be taught to “stay away from trouble and be a good boy” but to “do the right thing even if it’s going to get you in trouble”. They need to be taught to be proactive rather than passive. Al Zubair bin al Awam – one of the ten given the glad tidings of Paradise – used to take with him to the battlefield his son Abdullah when he was still a child. But since Abdullah was still a child and therefore couldn’t fight, his father would have him carry a small knife and go around the battlefield searching for injured disbelievers in order to finish them off. Abdullah then grew up to become one of the great fighters of this ummah.

Even though the physical Jihad is primarily within the men’s domain, our sister still needs to live the “life of a mujahid” which her husband lives. She needs to be supportive of him if he goes for Jihad, content if he is a shaheed and patient if he is taken as a POW. A mujahid sister would be like the women of al Ansar. They saw that Islam was taking away their fathers, brothers, husbands and sons and they were still welcoming the muhajireen and opening their homes for them, spending their money on them when they knew very well the consequences of these actions.


31 – Avoiding the life of luxury


32 – Learning skills that would benefit the Mujahideen


The field of Jihad is wide and it demands many skills. The brothers and sisters need to learn these skills and then use them to serve Islam. I emphasize on using them to serve “Islam” because we hear a lot about Muslims claiming that the reason why they are studying and pursuing degrees is to serve Allah but in the end they end up serving their pockets and selfish desires.


33 – Joining groups that work for Jihad


34 – Spiritual preparation


35 – Guiding others to the scholars of truth


36 – Preparing for Hijrah


Muslims living amongst non-Muslims have put themselves at the mercy of the kuffar. When the Islamic state was established in Madinah the Messenger of Allah (saaws) declared it illegal to live amongst the disbelievers. Muslims should therefore prepare themselves to leave when the opportunity arises. Preparation for hijrah is not restricted to Muslims living in non-Muslim countries but applies to every Muslim because more often than not Jihad in its self demands hijrah. That is why the Messenger of Allah (saaws) said: “Hijrah does not stop as long as there is an enemy to fight” (Narrated by Ahmad)


37 – Giving naseehah to the mujahideen


The Mujahideen make mistakes and have shortcomings and need to be given naseehah. You can deliver the naseehah directly to them, you can send it, and you can post it on the internet; whatever way you choose, make sure that you are doing it for the sake of Allah and not to be critical of your brothers.

The naseehah not only includes pointing their shortcomings but also suggesting to them new ideas and warning them of danger.


38 – Studying the hadiths of fitan


39 – Exposing Pharaoh and his magicians.


The current governments of the Muslim world are playing the role of Pharaoh with Musa and the court scholars are playing the role of the magicians of Pharaoh in deceiving the masses. The governments and their court scholars are the third side of the triangle of enemies of the ummah alongside the Crusaders and the Zionists.


40 – Nasheeds


Muslims need to be inspired to practice Jihad. In the time of Rasulullah (saaws) he had poets who would use their poetry to inspire the Muslims and demoralize the disbelievers. Today nasheed can play that role. A good nasheed can spread so widely it can reach to an audience that you could not reach through a lecture or a book. Nasheeds are especially inspiring to the youth, who are the foundation of Jihad in every age and time. Nasheeds are an important element in creating a “Jihad culture”. Nasheeds are abundant in Arabic but scarce in English. Hence it is important for talented poets and talented singers to take up this responsibility. The nasheeds can cover topics such as: Martyrdom, Jihad is our only solution, support of the Mujahideen, support of the present day leaders of Jihad (to connect the youth to them), the situation of the Ummah, the responsibility of the youth, the victory of Islam and defending the religion. The nasheeds should focus on Justice rather than peace and strength rather than weakness. The nasheeds should be strong and uplifting and not apologetic and feminine.


41 – Boycotting the economy of the enemy


When Thumama bin Athaal became Muslim he boycotted Quraish by preventing the caravans carrying wheat to Makkah from passing through his land. Today Muslims should boycott the economies of the enemy by boycotting their products.


42 – Learning Arabic


Arabic is the international language of Jihad. Most of the Jihad literature is available only in Arabic and publishers are not willing to take the risk of translating it. The only ones who are spending the money and time translating Jihad literature are the Western intelligence services…and too bad, they would not be willing to share it with you. Arabic also happens to be the predominant language of the foreign mujahideen in every land of Jihad so without it you might end up talking to yourself. It is important for the mujahideen to able to communicate through a common language and Arabic is the proper candidate.


43 – Translating Jihad literature into other languages


44 – Teaching others about the characteristics of al Ta’ifah al Mansoorah


The Messenger of Allah (saaws) says:

“A group of my ummah would continue fighting, obeying the command of Allah, defeating their enemies and they would not be harmed by those who are against them until the hour starts (the Day of Judgment)” (Related by al Hakim and he stated that the hadith is authentic)


This is the victorious group which each one of us should strive to join. You can recognize this group by their attributes which are as follows:

They are a “group”: They work collectively and cooperate for the cause of good.

“Fighting”: This is a key feature of this group. This characteristic alone would eliminate many of the groups working for Islam today.

“They are not harmed by those who disagree with them”: This is because they have Allah on their side. I heard an English nasheed and even though the singer was a male but the voice and content was so feminine it gives you nausea. All what he was singing In another narration it says: “they are not harmed by those who betray them” which means that they would be betrayed by a lot of Muslims, yet, that won’t harm them.

“They are victorious”: Victory here doesn’t necessarily mean against their enemies in this world. It means that they would succeed in preserving the religion and fighting for it until they die and meet Allah. It means they will never give up, compromise, or falter in carrying on the banner of Islam.

Teaching others about al Taifah al Mansoorah would help them find the truth. Any Muslim who has basic knowledge of Islam, common sense, is willing to give up taqlid (blind following) of groups or Shuyukh, and think objectively would easily recognize which groups represent these attributes today. These characteristics fit them like a glove.


So brothers and sisters, these were some suggestions on how you can support Jihad in this day. These words don’t really mean much unless they are applied. So please apply as much as you can yourself and advise others to do the same.

In the end, we ask Allah to guide us to the straight path and to make us of those who listen to the words and follow the best of them. We ask you O Allah to make us among the mujahideen and to grant us victory over your enemies. Ameen!


Read the information is this lecture and think about how the muslim community supports the jihadist. Even in their silence they are supporting the murderers of innocent people. Those that claim islam is a religion of peace is either ignorant or an out-right liar.


I have even been in the ignorant camp until this point but since the TERRORIST attack at Ft. Hood I have been looking and researching more on the islamic/jihadist information readily available on the internet. DAMN!!!!! They are open and blatant about their belief and mission. Do not be deceived by the idiots in power that tell you islam is peaceful, they are the LIARS.


Our world is at risk from this type of misinformation on the hatred and evil being spread in the name of religion. No differently than all the rest of history, religion is responsible for most of the war/conflict and death. Will this become the new ‘world war’ that divides and potentially destroys our species or just take us back to the stone-age in technology, freedom and human rights?

Take a stand!!!!!!


Read and study, get good information, contact your representatives and senators.

Educate yourself and VOTE!!!!!
