Anestos Canelides takes a look at the justification provided by the Hadith for violence against the unbelievers.
Jihad in the Hadith: The Call to Fight the Kafir
by Anestos Canelides
In the aftermath of all the rapes in Germany, it is important to understand the justifications or reasons why the Muslim refugees attack the indigenous kuffar (infidels) in Europe, especially in Germany. In resistance to these invaders, the kafir or unbeliever must realize that the enemy has no regard for non-Muslims. According to Joseph Schacht, the basis of the Islamic attitude towards unbelievers is the law of war: the unbeliever must be converted, subjugated, or murdered. Currently the Muslim refugees do not have the power to dominate, but with the help of the globalist-controlled authorities, they can attack the kafir with little fear of punishment by the police. This is rapidly getting worse as hordes of immigrants keep arriving, and it is expected that many more will arrive after the winter is over.
The source of their justification for attacking unbelievers comes not only from the Qur’an, but also their other sacred text found in the Sira or biography of Mohammad and the Hadiths or traditions. When people (usually liberals ) ask where in the Qur’an is there support for violence against the kafir, this really shows their limited understanding about Political Islam. The Qur’an is just one of three books. The Hadiths must also be thoroughly be examined to gain a fuller understanding of the Islamic agenda. All three books support violent Jihad against the unbelievers.
A collection of hadiths is called a Hadith. The are many Hadith, but the most authoritative are by Abu Bukhari and Abu Muslim. To risk being redundant, a clearer knowledge of the violent verses found outside the Qur’an is vital for understanding what motivates these refugee in their attacks against the kafir in the host countries they have invaded. Such knowledge is important in understanding the threat to our freedoms by the immigrants, the Left, and the globalists. This is a war for the soul of Western Civilization, the waging of which must be based on our understanding of political Islam and its global agenda. The real danger is that if Europeans and even Americans don’t wake up, out of necessity the war of ideas could easily become a physical war against Islam and its globalist allies.
In comparison to the Qur’an, the tone of the Hadith does not change and still calls upon the believers in Allah to make a holy war against all unbelievers. They are instructed to fight the kuffar until they are dead, convert to Islam, or — in the case of the “people of the book” — pay the Jiyza and submit to Islamic dominance. According to Walid Shoebat, a former PLO terrorist, there are almost 100 verses in the hadiths that support Jihad.
Jihad in the Hadith:
Vol. 4, bk 52, no 61: Narrated Anas: My Uncle Anas bin An-Nadr was absent from the battle of Badr. He said, Oh Allah’s Apostle I was absent from the first battle you fought against the Pagans.(By Allah) if Allah gives me a chance to fight against the pagans, no doubt. Allah will see how bravely I will fight.
Vol. 4, bk. 52, 4: Narrated Ibn Abbas: Allah’s Apostle said, there is no Hijra (i.e. migration) ( from Mecca to Medina) after the conquest of Mecca, but Jihad and good intention remain; and if you are called (by the Muslim ruler) for fighting go immediately.
Vol. 4, bk. 52 no.53 Narrated Anas bin Malik: The Prophet said, “Nobody who dies and finds good from Allah (in the hereafter) would wish to come back to this world even if he were given the whole world and whatever is in it, except the martyr who, on seeing the superiority of martyrdom, would like to come back to the world and get killed again (in the cause of Allah).”
Vol. 4, bk. 52, no. 48: Narrated Anas: The Prophet said, “A single endeavor (of fighting) in Allah’s cause in the afternoon or forenoon is better than all the world and what is in it. A place in paradise as small as the bow or lash of one of you is better than all the world and whatever is in it. And if an houri from paradise appeared to the people of the Earth, she would fill the space between the Heaven and the Earth with light and pleasant scent and her head cover is better than the world and whatever is in it.
Vol. 4 bk 52, no 44: Narrated by Abu Hurarira: A man came to Allah’s Apostle and said, “instruct me as to such a deed as equals Jihad (in reward).” He replied, “I do not find such as deed.” Then he added, “can you, while the Muslim is in the battle field, enter your Mosque to perform prayers without cease and fast and never break your fast?’ The man said, “But who can do that? Abu Haraira added, “The Mujahid (i.e. Muslim fighter) is rewarded even for the footsteps of his horse while it wanders about.”
Vol. 4. bk 52, no. 49: Narrated Sumura: The Prophet said, “ Last night two men came to me (in a dream) and made me ascend a tree and then admitted me into a better superior house, better of which I have never seen. One of them said, “This house is house of Martyrs.”
Sahih Muslim: The Book of Jihad and Expedition (Kitab Al Jihad Wa’l- Siyar), Book 19
No 4292: Ibn ’Anun reported: I wrote to Nafi’ inquiring from him whether it was necessary to extend ( to the disbeliever) an invitation to accept (Islam) before m[eet]ing them in fight.” He wrote (in reply) to me it was necessary in the early days of Islam. The messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) made a raid upon Banu Mustaliq while they were unaware and their cattle were having a drink at the water. He killed those who fought and imprisoned others. On that day he captured Juwairiya bint-Harith. Nafti said that this tradition as related to him by Abdullah b. Umar who himself was among the raiding troops.
No 4294: It has been reported from Sulaiman b. Buraid through his father that when the messenger of Allah appointed anyone as a leader of an army or detachment he would especially exhort him to fear Allah and be good to Muslims who were with him. He would say: fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah make a Holy war …
With President Obama allowing in thousands of Muslim so-called refugees while refusing Christians, both Americans and Europeans must gain a better understanding of political Islam. Thomas Jefferson had a copy of the Qur’an not because he was interested in the religion of Islam, but to help him understand the ideology of an enemy that threatened our shipping in the early 19th century. It is important for all Counterjihadists to fully know their enemy. It is more important to understand and hate the doctrine of political Islam, and not to hate Muslims themselves, who are often victims of their own ideology. As a political doctrine, Islam is a death cult, but that does not make all Muslims evil — many are good people.
One great source to help anyone to gain a better understanding of the hadiths or any other Islamic text is Dr. Bill Warner’s book store. There are many other Counterjihad sites such as Jihad Watch by Robert Spencer. By the same token we must also support the Muslim reform movement led by people such as Dr. Zudhi Jasser from The American Islamic Forum for Democracy.
As long as we have freedom of speech we must be like Patrick Henry, and cry out about the danger of the coming of Political Islam into Europe and North America. We must organize and educate each other just as Act for America does. Writing about classical Greco-Roman history is more interesting, but the threat of Political Islam overshadows even that. The question that could be asked of Americans about tyranny is: “What did the Founding Fathers do?”
This is for our European cousins as well. I don’t encourage violence, but my favorite quote is: “ Give me liberty for give me death.”
