The annulment of jehad by the quadiani pretender Mirza Ghulam Ahmad


God said:

"But when fighting was prescribed for behold a party of them feared men as or even more than they should have feared God. (4/77)

When the order of Jehad was made obligatory, the hypocrites held back and were afraid, thinking they will be killed, so they said:

"Our Lord! Why thou ordered us to fight? Wouldst thou not grant us respite to our natural term." (4/77)

The hypocrites had also said about the Muslims who had died in action in the battle of Ohad, had they been away from the fight with them, they would have not been killed. God refuting their obnoxious contention said:

"Wherever ye may be death will overtake you even if ye are in lofty towers." (4/78)

It is only the fear of death which shrinks a man from Jehad. God taught us velour and told us to avoid Jehad is cowardice. Shake-spear the great dramatist quoted the same idea when he said:

"The cowards die many times before their death, The valiant tasteth death but once." There can be no avoidance from death: "Every soul shall have a taste of death." (3/185, and 21/35)

At another place God said:

"We appointed immortality for no mortal before thee." (21/34)

It is therefore obvious any man who takes to Jehad or not, there is no deliverance from death. Its hour is fixed: . "Lo! the term of God when it cometh, cannot be delayed, if ye but know." (71/4)

Khalid bin Waleed one of the greatest Muslim warrior said on his death bed:

"I fought many battles, and there is no place in my whole body but it has wound mark of sword, arrow or spear. And Ah yet I die on a death bed. Would that the cowards had taken 'admonition from my life."


The best of deeds of which one can really be proud of is Jehad, similarly the best of death is that of a martyr.

"Think not of those who are slain in God's Way as dead. Nay they are living. With their Lord, they have sustenance." (3/169)

In a report of Muslim, Masruq asked Abdullah explanation of the aforesaid revelation. (This Abdullah has been mentioned in the Musanad of Abu Masud of Damascus and Humaidi as Abdullah bin Masud). Abdullah bin Masud said he requested the Holy Prophet as to the above revelation. He said," The spirits of the martyrs are in the form of beautiful green birds, for them are the chandeliers hanging (under the shade of) the mystic Throne. They take their sustenance in Paradise from wherever they like and may retire to these chandeliers. Their Lord inclined towards them and asked if they desired any thing. They said, 'what else we desire, we get every thing in the Garden. The Lord asked them thrice, when they felt they would have to ask for something, they said,' 0 Lord! Return our spirits to our bodies to fight again in Thy Way. So when the Lord saw they had no need, left them."


In a report of Imam Ahmad. Abdutlah bin Abbas narrated, from the Prophet (sallallaho ataihi wasallam) similar to above and added (the spirits of the martyrs desired), "Would that our brothers know how our Lord has rained his bounties over us, so that they may devote themselves in Jehad, and may never shrink from Jehad. The Lord said," I will inform them about you. So Allah descended the aforesaid revelation of the Holy Quran. Few say these martyrs were of the battle of Ohad, and few say they were of Bir Maoona. However, the revelation describes the reward of Allah for all the martyrs.

"A man named Abu Bara bin Malik came to the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihi wasallam). The Prophet invited him to Islam. He neither accepted nor rejected Islam but requested the Prophet to send a party with him to call the people of Najd to Islam. The Prophet expressed his dissatisfaction telling him that the people of Najd will harm them. Abu Bara gave assurance and the Prophet sent a group of forty (in some reports seventy) Muslims with him. They dismounted at Bir Maoona. Haraam bin Milhan was sent to the chief of the clan Amir bin Tufail who was nephew of Aub Bara with the epistle of the Prophet (sallallaho alaihi wasallam). He told, "0 People! of Bir Maoona, I am sent as the messenger of the Apostle of Allah towards you and stand witness that there are no partners to God, He is Unique, and Muhammad is the Apostle of God and His slave. So you believe in God and His Apostle." In a report he handed over the letter to Amir bin Tufail who even did not read it. Haraam was instantly killed with a spear which pierced through his body. Before falling he said, 'By God I have triumphed.' then they followed his tracks and attacked the group of the Muslims all were martyred in action except one who was wounded and later released. (Ibn Jarir, Ibn Hisham)


Anas narrated. The Apostle of Allah said, "No dead, after being blessed with delights by His Lord, desires to come back to this world except the martyr who after having bestowed (the magnanimous) rewards of martyrdom wishes to return to the world only to fight again." (Ahmad, Muslim)

In a tradition the Prophet told Jabir whose father was martyred in the battle of Ohad, that his father was honoured to have a direct conversation with his Lord and when he desired to be sent back to fight again, he was told it was against the destiny . Hadith The martyrs win such a wonderful admiration that they are brought nigh to their Lord. Can we conceive a greater rank for the one who is favoured with a direct discourse with the Lord of the worlds.

What a marvellous position the martyrs enjoy that they have specifically been mentioned in the Holy Quran:


God said:

"Lo! "God hath bought from the believers their lives and their wealth for theirs in return is the Garden (of Paradise). They fight in his Cause, and slay and are slain. It is a promise which is binding on him in the Torah, and the Gospel and the Quran." (9/111)

He is the Creator of our lives, and what we have of the wealth and property are his bestowal. Yet he said to have bought what he conferred is a show of great respect to the Cause for which Allah invited us to fight. And giving up the ephemeral things of the world when we fight in His way, we are given in return everlasting felicity. In other words we offer our whole-selves and our possessions to Allah, and Allah gives us salvation i.e. eternal freedom from the bondage of this world. This is the true doctrine of redemption. The Quran tells us this very doctrine was taught in the original Law of Moses, and in the original Gospel of Jesus. The Christians belief that Jesus suffered for their sins, and they are redeemed by his blood is a concocted belief of corrupted Christianity and is strongly rejected by Islam. Every individual is to be reckoned for his deeds (good or bad) and shall be rewarded accordingly. However, Allah is Forgiver to every penitent. He covers the sins of His slaves with the veil of His mercy and so how indecent and foolish it is to make a confession of ones crimes before a pastor and think if pastor blesses, the guilty will be forgiven. Islam teaches us to request every thing to Allah and none else. It is He, "Who forgiveth Sin, and accepteth Repentance." However, the reward of man fighting in the Way of Allah is supreme.


God giving the eternal glad tidings to the dauntless fighters in His Way declared that they are among the most favourite ones:

"Truly God loves those Who fight in His Cause In battle array, as if They were a solid Cemented structure." (61/4)

Ibn Kathir writing the explanation of the above revelation referred to Ibn Abbas who said, "The men among the faithful wished to be led by God to the most beloved deed, so that they may act on it. God informed His Prophet that He loves true faith in Him and fight in His cause against the enemies of Islam...."

Mujahid said, "Among those people who desired to be guided to the most favourite act was Abdullah bin Rawaha Al Ansari. He said, 'if he knew he would die acting on it.' So it was revealed, that fight in His Cause is the best of all actions. Abdullah bin Rawaha took oath that he will continue Jehad throughout his life till he died. And dauntlessly fighting against the enemies of Islam he was killed in action in the battle of Mauta.

Saeed Al Khudri narrated. The Apostle of Allah said, "God is (specially) pleased from three kinds of men. Those who stand before Him during (the dead of) night for offering Pre-Dawn prayers, those who stand in line for (five time daily) congregational prayers and those who stand in a battle array against the enemy." (Musnad Ahmad).

The battle array also includes those people who sit in ditches or on the front line and attack the enemy overcoming him at the proper opportunity.

Ibn Kathir quoted Saeed bin Jubair who said, "The Apostle of Allah did never start battle before standing the fighters in ranks and this has been taught by God to the faithfuls to stand fast together." i.e. without breaking the ranks.

The most beloved act, however, is to fight with firm resolution against the enemies of Islam and to hold together against the assault like a solid structure is a better simile than the usual solid wall. As the structure implies a more diversified organisation of which each brick joins other brick, and each part is held together in unity and strength. Thus the Muslims with unity of heart and insurmountable spiritual force are that cemented structure who present their enemy the utmost resistence, and God loves them for their cohesion, courage, valour and heroicness. It is a great favour of God who made us to recognise our enemy and guided us how to survive in this world through the dynamic force of Jehad. Through His Prophet He also told us that every Muslim by participating in Jehad in either way can won the grade of love and admiration by Allah.


1) Abu Huraira narrated the Apostle of Allah said, "Whoever is wounded in Allah's cause will come on the Day of Resurrection with his wound bleeding having the colour of the blood and emitting the scent of musk. (agreed tradition)

Expounding the above Hadith Allama Seouti said, "The wounded may get martyred from that wound or not, whether he got that wound from the enemy or from a stone, or he got injured striking against a tree or wood, however every wounded in Allah's Cause (Jehad) will be given that virtuous grade." And Allah will raise him on the Day of Resurrection with this distinctive emblem among all people that his wound will be bleeding, and it will emitting the scent of musk all round. Surely it is the dignity of the fighters against infidels which is worth to be envied. Tirmizi and Nisai have also related this tradition.

2) Narrated Abu Huraira, The Apostle of Allah said, "By Him In Whose hands my life is! were it not for some men amongst the believers who would grieve to be left behind me, and to whom I cannot provide with means of conveyance, I would certainly never remain behind by any 'Sariya' (troop of army sent by the Prophet) setting out in Allah's Cause. By Him in Whose hands my life is! I would love to be killed in Allah's Cause and then get resurrected, and then get martyred and then get resurged again and then get martyred and then get resurrected again and then get martyred, (agreed tradition).

The above revelation shows the tremendous love of the Prophet (sallallaho alaihi wasallam) for Jehad. The most part of his life past in war expeditions. Besides he sent many detachments of his companions to invite the people to Islam and to face the enemy. His heart was full of splendid emotions as to fight in God's Way that taking oath he said that he would have never remained behind any detachment, had the poor faithful not felt grieved of being detached from their Prophet. As they had no means to participate in all war excursions with their Prophet. He also said, had he means to take all the faithful with him, then he would have joined every squad sent for Allah's Cause. The Prophet's desire to gather all the believers to go out with him in all the war expeditions if means allowed also proved that to collect all the possible resources to face the enemy is the sunnah of our Prophet. His eminent desire of getting killed and resurrected again and again is the prove of greatness of Jehad. We have already seen in the previous traditions that martyrs also desired it.

3) Abu Huraira narrated, a man came to the Apostle of Allah and said, "Instruct me to such a deed which equals Jehad (in reward)," He replied,' "I do not find such a deed," and added, "Can you, while the Muslim fighter is in the battlefield, enter your mosque to perform prayers unceasingly, and go on fasting for ever?" The man said, "Who can with-stand to that." Abu Huraira added the Mujahid (Muslim fighter) is rewarded even for the footsteps of his horse while it wanders about (grazing) tied in a long rope." (Al-Bukhari)

In another narration of Aub Huraira the Prophet of God said," Allah guarantees that He will admit the Mujahid in His cause into Paradise if he is killed, otherwise He will return him safely with reward and war booty." Allah's Apostle made it clear that fight in Allah's Cause surpasses in reward the best of deeds i.e. all time worship in prayers and fasting. The fighter is, however, not absolved of the obligatory five daily prayers and that of fasting. But no saint, hermit or day and night worshipper can equal to his deed of Jehad.

Allah specially praised those who stood firmly to His Cause in the battle of Uhad:

"Of the believers are men who are true to that which they covenanted with Allah. Some of them have paid

their vow by death (in battle), and some of them still are waiting; and they have not changed (their determination) in the least." (33/23)

4) Anas narrated, "My uncle Anas bin Nadr was absent from the battle of Badr. He said," 0 Apostle of Allah! I was absent from the first battle you fought against the pagans. (By Allah) if Allah gives me a chance to fight the pagans, no-doubt Allah will see how (bravely) I fight. "On the day of Uhad when the Muslims turned their backs and fled, he said, 0 Allah! I apologize to you for what our fellow fighters have done, and I denounce what the pagans have done." While advancing (with rock resolution) Saad bin Muaz met him. He said, "0 Saad bin Muaz! By the Lord of An-Nadr, Paradise is at hand. I am smelling its aroma coming from that side of Uhud." Later on Saad said, "0 Apostle of Allah! I cannot do what Anas bin Nadr did. We found more than eighty wounds inflicted on his body by arrows, spears, and swords. We found him killed and his body was mutilated by polytheists so badly that none except his sister could recognize him by his fingers." (Al-Bukhari)

Those who fought un-wavered for the glory of Islam against non-Muslims certainly won the crown of martyrdom. They were blessed and so dear to their Lord that he referred to their heroic deed in His Holy Book.

5) AI-Bara narrated: A man whose face was covered with an iron mask (i.e. clad in armour) came to the Prophet (sallallaho alaihi wasallam) and said, "0 Apostle of Allah! Shall I fight or embrace Islam first?" The Prophet said embrace Islam first and then fight." So he embraced Islam, and then he fought and was martyred. The Apostle of God said, "He did very little (after embracing Islam) but he was awarded in abundance." (agreed tradition)

This sahabi was Asiram bin Abd al Ash-hal. The Prophet of God named him Zirah. The Prophet told to embrace faith first, because no deed whatever it may be is accepted without faith in Islam. After admitting the faith, his fight in Way of God and his martyrdom was that beloved deed which rained on him the rewards of God and he attained the splendid grades of martyrs. That is why the Prophet said that he did little but was rewarded immensely.

6) Anas narrated: Umme Ar-Rubaia daughter of AI-Bara, the mother of Hartha bin Suraqa came to the Prophet and said, "0 Prophet of Allah! Will you tell me about Hartha." Hartha had been killed on the day of Badr by an arrow thrown by an unidentified person. She added, "If he is in Paradise, I shall be patient, otherwise I shall weep bitterly for him." He said, "0 Mother of Hartha! There are Gardens in Paradise, and your son got the Firdous-el-Ala." (i.e. best place in Paradise) (Al-Bukhari)

7) The mother of faithful Aesha (radiallah anha) narrated: the day Apostle of Allah returned from the battle of 'Trench,' he put down his arms and took a bath. Then Gabriel whose head was covered with dust, came to him saying, "You have put down your arms. By Allah, I have not put down my arms as yet." The Apostle of Allah said where (to go now). Gabriel said, "This way," pointing towards the tribe of Bani Quraiza. So Allah's Apostle went out towards them. (Al-Bukhari).

Gabriel's coming to the Prophet in the shape of an armed fighter with his face covered in dust proves the great love and admiration of God for the Muslim fighters. God helped the Muslims on the occasion of the Battle of Badr and Uhud by sending his angels. (Quran)

8) Fadhala bin Obaid narrated: The Apostle of Allah said, "The deeds of all the deads are closed on their death, except the one who is killed as 'Murabit' (the one posted in the heart of the army at the time of invasion) in the Way of God. The reward of God continues to accrue on this deed of him till the day of Resurrection, and he will be given protection from the trial in the grave. (Aub Dawood, Tirmizi)

The death closes the record of the good and bad deeds of the dead. There shall not be any increase in his reward, nor any addition in his tortures. He will be reckoned on what he left the world, except the Murabit. And the Murabit is one who holds a position in the heart of the army to offer utmost resistance to the enemy invasion. The reward of this Mujahid will ever be on increase till the day of Resurgence and his faith will not be put on trial in the grave by the angels, because his very death in the path of Allah is the proof of his firm belief. "He sacrifices his life for the benefit of the Muslims, and to defend the cause of Islam by fighting against the non-Muslims amounts to the revival of the religion." (Mirqat al Mafatih)

9) Abu Huraira narrated: The Apostle of Allah said, "The infidel and his killer (Mujahid) will never be assembled in the Fire. (Muslim)

The Apostle of Allah explained the greatness of the one who fights in the path of Allah, that he would never be sent down to the Hell which is the permanent abode of all the infidels. An ever increase in the grade of Mujahid and that he could never enter Hell, are such virtues which undoubtedly show that Allah is enticing the faithfuls to fight in His Cause. In a Hadith of AL-Bukhari, Abu Abs Abdur Rahman bin Jabir quoted the Apostle of Allah having said," Any-one whose feet got covered with dust in Allah's cause will not be touched by the (Hell) fire."

10) Abu Bakr son of Abu Musa al Ashari said, 'I heard my father narrating while he was facing the enemy (In a battle field) that the Apotle of Allah once said, "The gates of the Paradise are under the shadows of the swords." Hearing these words a man dressed in ragged clothes stood up and said, '0 Aub Musa! Did you hear the Prophet having uttered this?' Abu Musa said, "Yes." The ragged man went towards his companions and said, 'I give you my (last) salutation.' Then he broke and threw away the sheath of his sword; and then he advanced towards the enemy; and fought till he fell martyred. (Muslim)

To say the gates of the Paradise are under the shadow of swords is to rouse the Muslims for Jehad. And when the swords are raised making an advancing movement to meet the enemy, is in fact an advance towards the gates of Paradise; to secure its eternal virtues, because the reward of the fight in Allah's cause is Heaven. Now-a-days the swords have been replaced by the guns and their shelling. When the enemy guns emit fire, at that hour the advance of the Muslim soldiers with a resolution to destroy the enemy ambitions is rewarded by Allah with eternal comforts and luxuries. The Muslim soldier gets thousands of Allah's blessings on each of his advancing step. Allah's reward to him shall ever be on increase till the Day of Resurrection due to the devotion of his life for upholding the Cause of Islam and to save the honour of the Muslims. This is the very purpose of a Muslim's life, that is why God said:

"He hath bought from the believers their lives and their wealth for (in return) the Garden (of Parardise) is theirs, they fight in His Cause, and slay and are slain." (9/111)

As a consequence to their fight in the Cause of Allah, the enemies of Islam get weakened, and the religion flourishes. What a wonderful example of faith in the Prophet of God was presented by that Muslim clad in rags who broke the sheath and making the last salutation to his companions fell upon the enemy with-amazirig and daring gallantry. He cut deep into the enemy force and fought till he lay there in his own blood martyred and triumphed. Certainly" he triumphed because Islam triumphed only by the sacrifices of such highly spirited Mujahids.

Surely we attained youth under the shadows of the swords, and the crescent like dagger is our national Symbol. (Dr. Iqbal)

  • AI-Meqdam bin Madi Karb narrated. The Apostle of Allah (said. The martyr is distinguished with six peculiarities:
  • The moment he is martyred, all his sins are forgiven;
  • he is shown his place in the heaven;
  • he is given protection from the tortures of the grave and from the supreme horror of the day of Reckoning;
  • the crown of dignity will be put on his head, its (marvelous) rubies will excell the world and every thing found in it;
  • he will be wed with seventy two fair ones with beautiful, big and lustrous eyes;
  • and he will be granted intercession for seventy persons from among his relatives. (Tirmizi, and Ibn Maja).
  • Explaining the above tradition Ali Sultan Muhammad Al Qari said, "The above six peculiarities are given only to the martyr and no one else will be given all the six favours at a time. Immediately after his martyrdom all his sins are effaced from his 'book of deeds.'

He will be protected from Supreme Horror also meant that he will not be sent down to Hell. The crown of honour will be put on his head, made in gold and diamonds whose value will excel the world and every thing found in it, and by mentioning seventy two 'Hurs' (the feminine partner in Heaven) the minimum number is intended, there is no bar on this number, Allah may excel His bounties on the martyr. Hur Een are the fair ones who shall have the most beautiful black and white luminous eyes, and he will be granted intercession for seventy persons of his near and dear ones.

To what wonderful reward Allah is inviting to. The fight for the Cause of Allah is that act which conceals the survival of Islam. The history testified many wars of Muslims against the enemies of Islam. And had Jihad not been made obligatory, the Muslims would have been wiped out from the face of the world. That is the reason that Allah not only made Jihad compulsory, but through his Prophet, He narrated constantly its marvellous virtues so that the Muslims should always keep themselves in readiness to sacrify their lives for the noble Cause of Islam.

12) Atba bin Abd Salma narrated, the Apostle of Allah said, "The men killed in fight are of three kinds, the faithful who had striven in the Cause of Allah with his person and wealth and when he met the enemy, he fought (vigorously) till he was killed. The Prophet of Allah said for him, 'he is that martyr tested' (to be pure in heart), he shall be in Allah's shelter right under His (mystic) throne, the prophets will not excel him but for the (venerable) grade of prophet-hood The faithful whose good deeds got mixed with ill deeds but he took part in war personally and employed his wealth in the Cause of Allah, when he met the enemy, he fought (vigorously) till he was killed, the Prophet said, (he is among those) whose sins are effaced having been washed away, no doubt the sword effaces all the ill deeds, he will enter into the Garden of Bliss from any gate he desires. And the third is that hypocrite who did strive in the Cause of Allah with his person and wealth and when he faced the enemy, he fought till he was killed. He is in the Fire (Hell). No doubt the sword does not efface the hypocrisy." (AL-DARMI).

The most important ingredient is to be true in faith, and that is the belief that there are no partners to God, He is Unique and Matchless, and Muhammad is the very last of His Prophets, and there is no prophet after him till the last day of this world. The promised Messiah or Jesus Christ after his descent from the sky will be the follower of Muhammad (sallallaho alaihi wasllam), the Chief of the Prophets. The persons who possess the above belief are those who will enjoy the bliss and pleasures from God. If the men who got martyred were among the righteous and saved themselves from the sins and from disobedience to God and whenever they fell into an ill deed, they were penitent to God, for such men who were killed in action, they would be under the shelter of His (mystic) Throne, and they would enjoy the grade second to the prophets. What a wonderful honour! This proves that fight in His Cause is the most favourite to Him. Those Muslims who got martyred and this martyrdom was caused either by sword or by a bullet or due to any reason in the Cause of Allah, it effaced all their sins, and they are greeted with bounties of God, and all the gates of Paradise will be opened in their welcome and they enter to eternal virtues, bliss and pleasures of the Paradise. But the one who is false in faith, may be a very great general, or expert of war theaters, Islam and Muslims do not require him. He will be sent down into the Fire. Allah and His Apostle after whom there is no prophet said, the sword or anything which caused his death during the war will not obliterate his falsehood in his faith.

13) Ibn Aiz narrated. The Apostle of Allah went to a funeral of a man, when the dead body was placed for the funeral prayers Umar bin Al Khattab said, "0 Apostle of Allah! Don'toffer his prayer as he is a sinner." The Apostle of Allah turned towards the people and said," Did anyone of you see him performing any Islamic act? A man said, 'yes, 0 Allah's Apostle! he spent a night as guard in the way of Allah (Jehad),' The Apostle of Allah offered his funeral prayer, (followed his funeral to the grave yard, took part in his burial, and put dust (on his grave), and said addressing the dead," Your companions think that thou art among the owners of the Fire, But I (Muhammad the Prophet) testify that thou art among the owners of the Garden. (AI-Baihaqi).

It may please be noted that by Cause of Allah, Way of Allah or the path of God is nothing meant but Jehad. And every war which believers fight against the non-Muslims is Jehad. Thus under the above tradition the Holy Prophet gave glad tidings to all the participants to Jehad even for a short time as that of a night or less or more. Of course the glad tidings also include those who go for inviting people to Islam, and the entry of them all into the garden of Bliss to enjoy its everlasting pleasures is certain.

14) Abdullah bin Abbas narrated. He heard the Prophet of Allah (sallallaho alaihi wasallam) said, "The Fire of the Hell would never touch the two eyes, the eye which wept due to the fear of God, and the vigilant eye in the Way of Allah i.e. Jehad. (Tirmizi)

15) Abu Huraira narrated Allah's Apostle (sallallaho alaihi wasallam) said. "The martyr when killed does not feel any pain except that of an ant bite. (Tirmizi)

It is a great favour to martyr from Allah that he does not undergo any agonies of death and nor he is subjected to all the possible fatal pains which usually occur on account of the injuries, and his way is made easy to achieve eternal peace and blessings from God.

A WRONG BELIEF is spread among the Muslims that the dead bodies of the martyrs do not decay in their graves. This belief has no support from the Quran and Sunnah, except their spirits are quite unlike the spirits of the other deads in as much as they enter Paradise and given sustenance over there.

As the light travels 180,000 miles in a second, they measure these distances in light years. The sun is on a distance of 93 million miles, its light reaches us in 8 minutes. The scientists have discovered 100 millions of celestial bodies called Nebula and they are at a distance of hundred thousand light years from us. So there is no wonder if there is a hundred years distance between the two grades of paradise.
