Commands regarding Jihad and Qital - Quran Chapter 2- 195 (Pt-2, Stg-1) (L-240) - درس قرآن


Quran Chapter 2- 195 (Pt-2, Stg-1) (L-240) - درس قرآن

Commands regarding Jihad and Qital

Surah ‘Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim. 
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

The orders regarding fighting and striving (Qital and Jihad) end on the verse – 195. It seems reasonable that the obligatory aspects of the fighting and striving, its terms and conditions should be stated briefly. Since some misled people are apparent totally as Deniers of the fighting on one side and on the other side; our enemy historians; particularly the western authors defame the Muslims and Islam by narrating about Jihad as only beating and brawl out, slaughtering and plundering, and religious bloody fight.

Let us discuss the matter numerically in the light of verses up to 195. Those commandments which have been mentioned on other places in Holy Qur’an, will be explained at own places:

1.   Fight for the cause of Allah Almighty.(190)

2.   Fight only those people who fight against you (190), in other words don’t fight with the people who like peace and love, that is to say; the children, the women, the ailing, the excusable and unarmed people.

3.   Don’t intensify. God Almighty doesn’t like the individuals who oppress. (190).

4.   Slay them wherever ye find the enemy in the battlefield (191). Remember that this order is only for the situation of war and not during peace time.

5.   Drive your enemies out of the areas whence they drove you out (191).

6.   Try neither to make mischief/persecution or quarrel, nor let any individual to do this. The persecution is worse than slaughter (190).

7.   You can fight only against the persons at the Inviolable Place of Worship (Masjidil-Haraam) who fight there otherwise you cannot. (191)

8.   If the enemy desists from war then stop it (192).

9.   Fight until sedition/persecution is no more and the Religion of God Almighty excels. (192)

10.                     Let there be no hostility except against the wrongdoers (193).

11.                     Respect the Forbidden Months and stop fighting during these months (194).

12.                     Observe your duty to God Almighty and know that Allah Almighty is with those who ward off (evil) (194).

13.                     Spend your wealth for the cause of Allah Almighty. If you will not do so, then you will cast yourselves by your own hands to ruin. (195).

14.                     Do good and honoring. Lo! Allah Almighty loves the beneficent. (195)

Think for awhile. Which point is against the wisdom, justice or nobility from the above?
