Holy Lie Exposed: Jihad = Holy War!

Holy Lie Exposed: Jihad = Holy War! Islam is a lie and Muslims are liars.  The glossary appended to Jamih Tirmidhi at page 587 of volume 6 contains an egregious lie which is exposed in due form by a contradictory definition of a similar term.  I quote from the definition of Jihad.  My incendiary commentary is internally linked to superscripts inserted in the quote.

Usually understood in terms of personal betterment1, Jihad remained a highly nuanced concept, it should not be confused with Holy War, a common misrepresentation, the latter does not exist in Islam nor will Islam allow its followers to be involved in a Holy War2. The latter refers only to the Holy War of the Crusaders. Jihãd is not a war to force the faith on others, as many people think of it. It should never be interpreted as a way of compulsion of the belief on others, since there is
an explicit Verse in the Qur'an that says: "There is no compulsion in religion.3"(Qur'an: Al-Baqarah 2:256). Jihad is not a defensive war only, but a war against any unjust regime, or any evil that is rampant in the society. If such a regime or a group exists that is spreading disinformation, and by that creating the chaos, a war is to be waged against the leaders, but not against the people4 to stop it.

People should be freed from the unjust regimes and influences so that they can freely choose to believe in Allah and worshipping Him. Not only in peace but also in war, Islam prohibits terrorism5, kidnapping, and hijacking, when carried against civilians. Whoever commits such violations is considered a murderer in Islam, and is to be punished by the Islamic state. During defensive wars6, Islam prohibits Muslim soldiers from harming civilians, women, children, elderly, and the religious men like priests and rabbis7. It also prohibits cutting down trees and destroying civilian constructions.8
In short, any cruelty or unjust practice with the enemies is also prohibited in Islam, in fact introducing the highest human rights first time before the world.

Jihad an Nafs

    I quote from Reliance Of The Traveller, Book o, Chapter 9.0, which defines Jihad.

Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada signifying warfare to establish the religion. And it is the lesser jihad. As for the greater jihad, it is spiritual warfare against the lower self (nafs), which is why the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said as he was returning from jihad.

``We have returned from the lesser jihad to the greater jihad.''

    How does a Muslim get killed in Jihad an-nafs?

Hedaya 2.144
Hedaya 2.214

    They want you to believe that Jihad is for Allah's good pleasure in expanding and establishing Islam but it is really about the spoils. When they conquer you, they enslave your widows and orphans.  Who can get a clue?

3:139. So do not become weak (against your enemy), nor be sad, and you will be superior (in victory) if you are indeed (true) believers.

3:140. If a wound (and killing) has touched you, be sure a similar wound (and killing) has touched the others. And so are the days (good and not so good), We give to men by turns, that Allâh may test those who believe, and that He may take martyrs from among you. And Allâh likes not the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong­doers).

3:141. And that Allâh may test (or purify) the believers (from sins) and destroy the disbelievers.

3:142. Do you think that you will enter Paradise before Allâh tests those of you who fought (in His Cause) and (also) tests those who are As-Sâbirin (the patient ones, etc.)?

3:143. You did indeed wish for death (Ash­Shahâdah - martyrdom) before you met it. Now you have seen it openly with your own eyes.

3:144. Muhammad  is no more than a Messenger, and indeed (many) Messengers have passed away before him. If he dies or is killed, will you then turn back on your heels (as disbelievers)? And he who turns back on his heels, not the least harm will he do to Allâh, and Allâh will give reward to those who are grateful.

3:145. And no person can ever die except by Allâh's Leave and at an appointed term. And whoever desires a reward in (this) world, We shall give him of it; and whoever desires a reward in the Hereafter, We shall give him thereof. And We shall reward the grateful.

3:157. And if you are killed or die in the Way of Allâh, forgiveness and mercy from Allâh are far better than all that they amass (of worldly wealths, etc.).

3:195. So their Lord accepted of them (their supplication and answered them), "Never will I allow to be lost the work of any of you, be he male or female. You are (members) one of another, so those who emigrated and were driven out from their homes, and suffered harm in My Cause, and who fought, and were killed (in My Cause), verily, I will remit from them their evil deeds and admit them into Gardens under which rivers flow (in Paradise); a reward from Allâh, and with Allâh is the best of rewards."

    I quote Abdullah Azzam: "Join The Caravan" pp. 26-27. [Emphasis added.]
10. The saying, "We have returned from the lesser jihad (battle) to the greater jihad (jihad of the soul)" which people quote on the basis that it is a hadith, is in fact a false, fabricated hadith which has
no basis. It is only a saying ofIbrahim Ibn Abi `Abalah, one of the Successors, and it contradicts
textual evidence and reality. {Ibn Taymiyyah said in Al-Furqan pp. 44-45: "This hadith has no sources
and nobody whomsoever in the field of Islamic knowledge has narrated it. Jihad against the
disbelievers is the most noble of actions and moreover it is most important action for the sake of
mankind." Al-Khateeb Al-Baghdadi reports it as daeef (weak) due to the narratorKhalaf bin
Muhammad bin Ismail Al-Khiyam. Al-Haakim says, "His hadiths are unreliable." Abu Ya'la Al-Khalili
says, "He often adulterates, is very weak and narrates unknown hadith." (Mashari-ul-Ashwaq, Ibn
Nuhas 1/31). There is also the narratorYahya bin Al-Ula who is known liar and forgerer of hadith
(Ahmad). Amru bin Ali, An-Nasai and Ad-Daraqutni state, "His hadith are renounced." Ibn Adi
states, "His hadith are false," (Tahzeeb-ut-Tahzeeb 11/261-262) Ibn Hajar said, "He was accused of
forging hadith," (At-Taghrib). Adh-Dhahabi said, "Abu Hatim said that he is not a strong narrator,
Ibn Ma'een classified him as weak and Ad-Daraqutni said that he is to be neglected."

    I searched the six canonical hadith collections without finding "We have returned from the lesser jihad "Each of those hadith collections has a 'Book Of Jihad' I  challenge you to find in any of their jihad books one saying that is about Jihad an-nafs!

Holy War

    Evidently the Editor is not the sharpest knife in the drawer: another entry in the Glossary directly contradicts that lie! Check out page 597 of vol. 6! [Emphasis added.]
MaghazI: (L.cJI) Plural of Maghza or Ghazwah (i.e., holy battle). The
military campaigns inwhich the Prophet himself participated.

    So, Islam has holy battles but not holy wars. Wars are composed of  battles. If the battles are holy, why ain't the wars?

    Moe, torment & damnation be upon him, ordered his field commanders to make a "holy war" and listed the acts that would profane it. [Emphasis added.]

It has been reported from Sulaiman b. Buraida through his father that when the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) appointed anyone as leader of an army or detachment he would especially exhort him to fear Allah and to be good to the 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, do not embezzle the spoils; do not break your pledge; and do not mutilate (the dead) bodies; do not kill the children. When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withhold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them. Then invite them to migrate from their lands to the land of the Muhajireen and inform them that, if they do so, they shall have all the privileges and obligations of the Muhajireen. If they refuse to migrate, tell them that they will have the status of Bedouin Muslims and will be subjected to the Commands of Allah like other Muslims, but they will not get any share from the spoils of war or Fai' except when they actually fight with the Muslims (against the disbelievers). If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah's help and fight them. When you lay siege to a fort and the besieged appeal to you for protection in the name of Allah and His Prophet, do not accord to them the guarantee of Allah and His Prophet, but accord to them your own guarantee and the guarantee of your companions for it is a lesser sin that the security given by you or your companions be disregarded than that the security granted in the name of Allah and His Prophet be violated. When you besiege a fort and the besieged want you to let them out in accordance with Allah's Command, do not let them come out in accordance with His Command, but do so at your (own) command, for you do not know whether or not you will be able to carry out Allah's behest with regard to them.

    Did the most accursed Profiteer participate in holy battles? For the answer, we turn to Sahih Bukhari, reputed to be the most authentic and reliable of the hadith collections. [Emphasis added]

Narrated Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri:

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "A time will come when the people will wage holy war, and it will be asked, 'Is there any amongst you who has enjoyed the company of Allah's Messenger (ﷺ)?' They will say: 'Yes.' And then victory will be bestowed upon them. They will wage holy war again, and it will be asked: 'Is there any among you who has enjoyed the company of the companions of Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) ?' They will say: 'Yes.' And then victory will be bestowed on them."

A search for holy battle turned up 55 instances in Sahih Bukhari.

no compulsion

    Ibn Kathir tells us that this verse was revealed about the Ansar, who had raised their children as Jews.

    Can they compel you to be Muslim? But they can compel you to fake it! That is why there are  "hypocrites". [Emphasis added.]

    Examine the primary Jihad ayat.
8:39. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer of what they do.

9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

    Note the terminal conditions of 8:39. Worship for Allah alone and cessation of resistance. The caliph fights "all other peoples" until they "become Muslims". [Reliance o9.9]  If that ain't compulsion, what is?

not against the people

    This is a pull your head out of the sand moment. How does Islam enslave people without first attacking them? [Emphasis added.]
Sahih  Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 143:

Narrated Anas bin Malik:

The Prophet said to Abu Talha, "Choose one of your boy servants to serve me in my expedition to Khaibar." So, Abu Talha took me letting me ride behind him while I was a boy nearing the age of puberty. I used to serve Allah's Apostle when he stopped to rest. I heard him saying repeatedly, "O Allah! I seek refuge with You from distress and sorrow, from helplessness and laziness, from miserliness and cowardice, from being heavily in debt and from being overcome by men." Then we reached Khaibar; and when Allah enabled him to conquer the Fort (of Khaibar), the beauty of Safiya bint Huyai bin Akhtab was described to him. Her husband had been killed while she was a bride. So Allah's Apostle selected her for himself and took her along with him till we reached a place called Sad-AsSahba,' where her menses were over and he took her for his wife. Haris (a kind of dish) was served on a small leather sheet. Then Allah's Apostle told me to call those who were around me. So, that was the marriage banquet of Allah's Apostle and Safiya. Then we left for Medina. I saw Allah's Apostle folding a cloak round the hump of the camel so as to make a wide space for Safiya (to sit on behind him) He sat beside his camel letting his knees for Safiya to put her feet on so as to mount the camel. Then, we proceeded till we approached Medina; he looked at Uhud (mountain) and said, "This is a mountain which loves us and is loved by us." Then he looked at Medina and said, "O Allah! I make the area between its (i.e. Medina's) two mountains a sanctuary as Abraham made Mecca a sanctuary. O Allah! Bless them (i.e. the people of Medina) in their Mudd and Sa (i.e. measures)."

    Islamic law clarifies the issue so as to leave no room for error.  I quote Reliance [Emphasis added.]


When a child or a woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman's previous marriage is immediately annulled.

    What is the practical application of that law? [Emphasis added.]

33:26. And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allâh brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.

33:27. And He caused you to inherit their lands, and their houses, and their riches, and a land which you had not trodden (before). And Allâh is Able to do all things.

    Who were the two groups? Ibn Kathir has the answer for you.
"Those who were killed were their warriors, and the prisoners were their children and women."

    The most accursed Profiteer dictated and dispatched threatening extortion letters. The most explicit of them, leaving nothing to the imagination, was sent to the rulers of a Jordanian port city. Read it and curse Islam. [Emphasis added.]

Volume 1, Parts II.73.3
They said: The Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, wrote to Yuhannah Ibn
Rubbàh and (other) chiefs of the people of Aylah: You are safe. I praise Allah before
you; there is no God but He. I will not fight against you unless I write to you (in
advance). So, join the fold of Islam or [P. 29] pay the jizyah. Obey Allah and His
Apostle and the messengers of His Apostle, honour them and dress them in nice
clothes, other than the uniform of the ghazis. Provide Zayd with good clothes. If my
messengers will be pleased with you, I shall also be pleased with you. The jizyah is a
known thing. If you like that, peace might prevail over the land and sea; you should
obey Allah and His Apostle. You will not be required to pay dues you have been
paying to the Arabs and the 'Ajamis, and you will pay the dues to Allah and His
Apostle. If you send them (my messengers) back and do not please them, I shall not
accept anything from you, and shall wage war against you and make your young
ones captive and shall stay your elders. Verily, I am the Apostle of Allah to
communicate the truth. I believe in Allah, His Books and His Apostles. I believe in
Masih Ibn Maryam (Messiah son of Mary) who is His word, to be His Apostle. Come
to me before you face the evil. I have given advice to my messengers about your
affairs. Pay three wasag (Wasaq is a camel-loadequal to sixty sa`s, each sa` being
equal to four mudds, and each mudd is equal to 1-1/3 lbs., thus a wasaq is equal to
nearly four maunds of Pakistan.) of barley to Harmalah. Verily, Harmalah has
recommended your case. Had there been no Allah and this (recommendation) I
would not have had any correspondence with you and you would have seen armies
marching against you. If you obey my messenger, verily, Allah is your defender and
(also) Muhammad and those who follow him. Verily, my messengers are Shurahbil,
Ubayyi, Harmalah and Hurayth lbn Zayd al-Tá'i. If they conclude a treaty, I shall
approve of it and you will be under the guarantee of Allah and Allah's Apostle
Muhammad. Salàm to you. If you obey, you should arrange provisions for the people
of Maqna to go to their land. 

    "If you send them (my messengers) back and do not please them, I shall not
accept anything from you, and shall wage war against you and make your young
ones captive and shall stay your elders."  

What part of that do you not understand?  Moe threatened to kill the adults and enslave the children, but Islam does not attack the people.

    The ostensible purpose of Jihad is laid out for us in another Islamic law text: Hedaya, Volume 2, Book 9, page 144. The law of the Hanafi madhab governed India and the Ottoman Empire. The translation is difficult to read because of archaic vocabulary, syntax and font.  Click the images to enlarge them for legibility.

Islam prohibits terrorism

    That claim is 180° out of phase with truth. Islam commands terrorism!  Examine what Allah & Moe said about terrorism. [Emphasis added.]

3:151. We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allâh, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong­doers).

8:12. (Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, "Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes."

8:57. So if you gain the mastery over them in war, punish them severely in order to disperse those who are behind them, so that they may learn a lesson.

So if you interlock (yourself) with them in War — then by (routing) them strike terror in those that are behind them per chance they get admonition.

8:60. And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war (tanks, planes, missiles, artillery, etc.) to threaten the enemy of Allâh and your enemy, and others besides whom, you may not know but whom Allâh does know. And whatever you shall spend in the Cause of Allâh shall be repaid unto you, and you shall not be treated unjustly.

Arm yourselves against them with all the firepower and cavalry you can muster, to terrify the enemies of Allah and your enemies, and others besides them whom you do not know. Allah knows them. Anything you spend in the Way of Allah will be repaid to you in full. You will not be wronged.

9:120. It was not becoming of the people of Al-Madinah and the bedouins of the neighbourhood to remain behind Allâh's Messenger (Muhammad  when fighting in Allâh's Cause) and (it was not becoming of them) to prefer their own lives to his life. That is because they suffer neither thirst nor fatigue, nor hunger in the Cause of Allâh, nor they take any step to raise the anger of disbelievers nor inflict any injury upon an enemy but is written to their credit as a deed of righteousness. Surely, Allâh wastes not the reward of the Muhsinûn

33:26. And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allâh brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.

59:2. He it is Who drove out the disbelievers among the people of the Scripture (i.e. the Jews of the tribe of Banî An-Nadîr) from their homes at the first gathering. You did not think that they would get out. And they thought that their fortresses would defend them from Allâh! But Allâh's (Torment) reached them from a place whereof they expected it not, and He cast terror into their hearts, so that they destroyed their own dwellings with their own hands and the hands of the believers. Then take admonition, O you with eyes (to see).

Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle said, "I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand." Abu Huraira added: Allah's Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).

    Allah said he would and did cast terror. He commanded Muslims to strike terror and terrify enemies known and unknown. He promised Brownie Points for acts of terrorism. Moe said he was made victorious with terror.  Who can get a clue?

defensive wars

    Defensive wars, yeah, right. I quote from Reliance o9.8. [Emphasis added.]

o9.8: The Objectives of Jihad

The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o11.4) -which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,

"Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled" (Koran 9.29),

the time and place for which is before the final descent of Jesus (upon whom be peace).  After his final coming, nothing but Islam will be accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until Jesus' descent (upon him and our Prophet be peace), which is the divinely revealed law of Muhammad. The coming of Jesus does not entail a separate divinely revealed law, for he will rule by the law of Muhammad. As for the Prophet's saying (Allah bless him and give him peace),

"I am the last, there will be no prophet after me,"

this does not contradict the final coming of Jesus (upon whom be peace), since he will not rule according to the Evangel, but as a follower of our Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) ).

The caliph makes war on people of the book after first issuing dawah. Jihad is offensive, not defensive!
That is confirmed in Risala, the Maliki fiqh.
30.2b. Inviting people to Islam first 
And it is preferable, according to us, that the enemy are not fought until they have been invited
to the din  of Allah except if they attack first.
[The Malikis prefer that each group be called upon to abandon their disbelief and be called to the
shahada whose contents are not prescribed. He calls to the general message of the Prophet for three
days in succession unless they attack first. Then the call is not recommended. Indeed, it becomes
obligatory to fight them.] 
30.2c. Offering a choice between Islam and jizya 
They can either accept Islam or pay the jizya (tax on non -Muslims); if not they are to be

Hedaya. vol.2, confirms it on page 141: "Infidels may be attacked without provocation.".

harming civilians

    Killing non combatants is prohibited because they are "property for Muslims": enslaved as per Reliance o9.13, quoted above.

prohibits cutting down trees

    The Muslim has a well maintained historic brdge to sell you, in Brooklyn. He was sure I would not look up his lie in Reliance, but I did.


It is permissible in jihad to cut down the enemy's trees and destroy their dwellings.

    Hedaya does not mention trees, but mandates burning dwellings and destroying crops. It is in the second volume, page 149.
