Keutamaan Jihad


Dalam catatan ini, ada dua hadits sahih daripada kitab Sahih Al-Bukhari yang dimuatkan. Saya sekadar mencatatkan apa yang telah disusun oleh penyusun yang asal iaitu Al-Imam Zainuddin Ahmad dan diterjemah ke dalam bahasa Inggeris oleh Dr Muhammad Muhsin Khan.

Mudah-mudahan beroleh pahala dan manfaat berterusan, bertambah perasaan cinta akan Nabi kita Nabi Muhammad shollallahu 'alaihi wa sallam serta diberikan kemudahan dan kekuatan untuk melaksanakan jihad demi agama Islam yang mulia ini.

Semoga Allah menjadikan kita dari kalangan mujahidin (orang-orang yang berjihad pada jalan Allah) dan dibangkitkan bersama mereka di Hari Kiamat nanti.


The Book of Jihad (Fighting for Allah's Cause)



Chapter 1. The superiority of Jihad[1]

1204. Narrated Abu Huraira rodhiyallahu 'anhu:

A man came to Allah's Messenger shollallahu 'alaihi wa sallam and said,

"Guide to me such a deed as equals Jihad (in reward)."

He replied,

"I do not find such a deed."

Then he added,

"Can you, while the Muslim fighter has gone for Jihad, enter your mosque to perform Salat (prayers) without cease and observe Saum (fasting) and never break your Saum (fast)?"

The man said,

"But who can do that?"[2]

[1] Al-Jihad (the holy fighting) in Allah's Cause (with full force of number and weaponry) is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its pillar (on which it stands). By Jihad Islam is established, Allah's Word is made superior, [His word being Laa ilaaha ill-Allah (which means: none has the right to be worshiped but Allah)] and His religion (Islam) is propagated. By abandoning Jihad (may Allah protect us from that) Islam is destroyed and the Muslims fall into an inferior position; their honour is lost, their lands are stolen, their rule and authority vanish. Jihad is an obligatory duty in Islam on every Muslim, and he who tries to escape from this duty, or does not in his innermost heart wish to fulfill this duty, dies with one of the qualities of a hypocrite.

[2] Of course, nobody can offer Salat (prayer) and observe Saum (fast) incessantly, and since the Muslim fighter is rewarded as if he was doing such good impossible deeds, no possible deed equals Jihad in reward.




Chapter 2: The best among the people is that believer who strives his utmost in Allah's Cause with both his life and property.

1205.

Narrated Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri rodhiyallahu 'anhu:

Somebody asked,

"O Allah's Messenger! Who is the best among the people?"

Allah's Messenger shollallahu 'alaihi wa sallam replied,

"A believer who strives his utmost in Allah's Cause with his life and property."

They asked,

"Who is next?"

He replied,

"A believer who stays in one of the mountain paths worshiping Allah and leaving the people secure from his mischief." [1]

******

[1] This is true in times of afflictions and disorder, otherwise social life is better than seclusion as the Prophet shollallahu 'alaihi wa sallam says in a Hadith reported by At-Tirmidhi,

"He who mixes with people and endures their mischief is better rewarded than he who does not mix with people and does not endure their mischief." (Qastalani, Vol. 5, Page 34)
