Qur'anic verses on the virtues of jihad (holy war)








آالحجرات : 15إِنَّمَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ الَّذينَ آمَنُوا بِاللَّهِ وَ رَسُولِهِ ثُمَّ لَمْ يَرْتابُوا وَ جاهَدُوا بِأَمْوالِهِمْ وَ أَنْفُسِهِمْ في‏ سَبيلِ اللَّهِ أُولئِكَ هُمُ الصَّادِقُونَ 

Only those are Believers who have believed in Allah and His Messenger, and have never since doubted, but have striven with their belongings and their persons in the cause of Allah: such are the sincere ones.

التوبة : 121وَ لا يُنْفِقُونَ نَفَقَةً صَغيرَةً وَ لا كَبيرَةً وَ لا يَقْطَعُونَ وادِياً إِلاَّ كُتِبَ لَهُمْ لِيَجْزِيَهُمُ اللَّهُ أَحْسَنَ ما كانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ 

Nor could they spend anything (for the cause) – small or great- nor cut across a valley- but the deed is inscribed to their credit: that Allah may requite their deed with the best (possible reward)

التوبة : 120ما كانَ لِأَهْلِ الْمَدينَةِ وَ مَنْ حَوْلَهُمْ مِنَ الْأَعْرابِ أَنْ يَتَخَلَّفُوا عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ وَ لا يَرْغَبُوا بِأَنْفُسِهِمْ عَنْ نَفْسِهِ ذلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمْ لا يُصيبُهُمْ ظَمَأٌ وَ لا نَصَبٌ وَ لا مَخْمَصَةٌ في‏ سَبيلِ اللَّهِ وَ لا يَطَؤُنَ مَوْطِئاً يَغيظُ الْكُفَّارَ وَ لا يَنالُونَ مِنْ عَدُوٍّ نَيْلاً إِلاَّ كُتِبَ لَهُمْ بِهِ عَمَلٌ صالِحٌ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لا يُضيعُ أَجْرَ الْمُحْسِنينَ 

It was not fitting for the people of Medina and the Bedouin Arabs of the neighborhood, to refuse to follow Allah's Messenger, nor to prefer their own lives to his: because nothing they could suffer or do, but was reckoned to their credit as a deed of righteousness,- whether they suffered thirst, or fatigue or hunger, in the cause of Allah, or trod paths to raise the ire of the unbelievers, or received any injury whatever from an enemy: for Allah suffers not the reward to be lost of those who do good.

البقرة : 218البقرة : 218إِنَّ الَّذينَ آمَنُوا وَ الَّذينَ هاجَرُوا وَ جاهَدُوا في‏ سَبيلِ اللَّهِ أُولئِكَ يَرْجُونَ رَحْمَتَ اللَّهِ وَ اللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَحيمٌ 

Those who believed and those who suffered exile and fought (and strove and struggled) in the path of Allah,- they have the hope of the mercy of the Allah: and Allah is Oft-forgiving and Most Merciful




 Qur'anic verses on the necessity of jihad (holy war)

آیاتی از قرآن کریم پیرامون ضرورت جهاد البقرة : 216كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الْقِتالُ وَ هُوَ كُرْهٌ لَكُمْ وَ عَسى‏ أَنْ تَكْرَهُوا شَيْئاً وَ هُوَ خَيْرٌ لَكُمْ وَ عَسى‏ أَنْ تُحِبُّوا شَيْئاً وَ هُوَ شَرٌّ لَكُمْ وَ اللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ وَ أَنْتُمْ لا تَعْلَمُونَ 

Fighting is prescribed for you and you dislike it. But it is possible that you dislike a thing which is good for you, and that you love a thing which is bad for you, and you know not.



Qur'anic verses on the nature of jihad (holy war)

آیاتی از قرآن کریم پیرامون ماهیت جهاد الحج : 40 ... وَ لَوْ لا دَفْعُ اللَّهِ النَّاسَ بَعْضَهُمْ بِبَعْضٍ لَهُدِّمَتْ صَوامِعُ وَ بِيَعٌ وَ صَلَواتٌ وَ مَساجِدُ يُذْكَرُ فيهَا اسْمُ اللَّهِ كَثيراً وَ لَيَنْصُرَنَّ اللَّهُ مَنْ يَنْصُرُهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَقَوِيٌّ عَزيزٌ 

Did not Allah check one set  of people by means of another there would surely have been pulled down monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, in which the name of Allah is commemorated in abundant measure. Allah will certainly aid those who aid his cause. For verily Allah is full of Strength, Exalted in Might (able to enforce His will)

التوبة : 14قاتِلُوهُمْ يُعَذِّبْهُمُ اللَّهُ بِأَيْديكُمْ وَ يُخْزِهِمْ وَ يَنْصُرْكُمْ عَلَيْهِمْ وَ يَشْفِ صُدُورَ قَوْمٍ مُؤْمِنينَ 

Fight them and Allah will punish them by your hands, cover them with shame, help you ( to victory) over them, heal the breast of the believers.

الأنفال : 39وَ قاتِلُوهُمْ حَتَّى لا تَكُونَ فِتْنَةٌ وَ يَكُونَ الدِّينُ كُلُّهُ لِلَّهِ فَإِنِ انْتَهَوْا فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ بِما يَعْمَلُونَ بَصيرٌ .

And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah altogether and everywhere. But if they cease, verily Allah does see all that they do.

البقرة : 251 ... وَ لَوْ لا دَفْعُ اللَّهِ النَّاسَ بَعْضَهُمْ بِبَعْضٍ لَفَسَدَتِ الْأَرْضُ وَ لكِنَّ اللَّهَ ذُو فَضْلٍ عَلَى الْعالَمينَ ..

And if Allah did not check one set of people by means of another, the earth would indeed be full of mischief: but Allah is full of bounty to all the worlds.

البقرة : 193 وَ قاتِلُوهُمْ حَتَّى لا تَكُونَ فِتْنَةٌ وَ يَكُونَ الدِّينُ لِلَّهِ .

And fight them until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and  faith in Allah.
