    [Transcript of part of Sheikh Qaradawi's answers, from al-Jazeera's weekly
    Sunday Programme]


    The Role of the Muslims in the Palestinian Cause

    I say that the Jihad is a duty upon the Ummah. And as I said in the Jumu'ah
    Khutbah Jihad is no longer fard kifaayah, but is rather fard 'ayn on every
    Muslim- but not jihad in the military sense. There is the military jihad,
    and I am with the brothers and sisters who have called for opening the
    borders for volunteers, and this is what President Abdallah Salih said last
    year at the beginning of the Intifada. He called on the countries
    surrounding the Zionist entity to open the borders to those seeking
    martyrdom and the mujahideen. Let us open them.. send a million Arabs and
    Muslims of those seeking Paradise and martyrdom for the sake of Allah. Let
    them be killed, and rather than having 300 million Arabs, let them be 299;
    instead of 1300 million Muslims... The Ummah is ready to offer martyrs after
    martyrs. Sufficient for us to see the men and women offered by the
    Palestinian people- Aayaat al-Akhras, and the sisters before her.. These are
    the ones who prove the existence of the Ummah. Jihad is now a duty upon us-
    military jihad if that is available, and our brothers in Hamas, Jihad,
    Al-Aqsa Brigades, and the opposition factions, the Palestinian resistance,
    and the Palestian people are all now united. There is no longer an authority
    and an opposition. The authority is targeted just like the opposition is
    targeted, and police and security men are killed as the others are killed.
    Military jihad is required of us.. We had wished for the Arab armies to
    move.. why does the Ummah buy arms costing billions of the peoples' budgets,
    only to leave them to rust without being used.. When are these arms to be
    used?
    .....
    It is incomprehensible.. Well, if we do not use these arms, let us try to
    give our brothers in the Intifada arms. We can one way or the other supply
    them with weapons, it will not be impossible- if there is a genuine will it
    can be done.. as the poet says: Had your emotions been sincere
    You would have been guided to cunning ways..
    If we tried to think of a way, we would be able to get arms to our brothers
    in the Intifada.. If they stop a ship.. let them stop a ship, one ship will
    be stopped, another will not.. we must try.. This is concerning the military
    jihad..

    There is another jihad, the political jihad. I cannot understand how an Arab
    country or a Muslim country can put hands in the hand of an ambassador
    representing the Zionist entity! It is not permissible at all to maintain
    relations between us and such people. We must suspend all political,
    economic, trade relations. These embassies must be closed, in Egypt, in
    Jordan, in Mauritania.. The economic and trade offices must all be closed...
    There is the financial jihad. The Quran says: "And strive with your wealth
    and yourselves in the way of Allah", "Shall I lead you to a bargain that
    will save you from a grievous Penalty?- That ye believe in Allah and His
    Messenger, and that ye strive in the Cause of Allah, with your property and
    your persons". Our brothers need aid, in many forms.. They are almost dying
    of starvation.. besieged.. they are burning.. unemployment is disastrously
    high.. We must aid them with money- help them at the official level, and the
    popular level.. In the first Intifada, there were major fund-raising
    campaigns, and in the days of the Afghanistan war, we had campaigns here and
    collected a lot, there was a campaign by the Qatari TV and some charity
    organisations.. Why do we not do the same? -Fund-raising campaigns, the
    governments can initiate them. Jihad through our money is required of us.
    Our brothers are striving with their lives, they offer their souls, and we
    are reluctant to give some dirhams or riyaals, to our brothers? This is a
    duty.
    There is another jihad. The cultural jihad. We cannot be celebrating while
    the Ummah is in mourning. It must be reflected in the media, on TV, radios,
    in the press, we must see the effect of this great catastrophe, this great
    mourning, this huge disaster. We must see its effects in our cultural life..
    There is the economic jihad, the jihad of boycott. Many years ago, I issued
    a fatwa prohibiting the buying of Israeli and American goods, and this was
    supported by tens of scholars. And I still stress.. Unfortunately the people
    first responded, and people here in Qatar, in the Gulf, even children told
    their parents o not buy American products, not even Pepsi or Coke or Pizza
    Hut or hamburgers and such things.. People first responded positively. Why
    have they relaxed their will? Why this slackness? We wish to revive this
    boycott once again..
    We also want the popular jihad.. Marches.. One may say: what are these
    marches for? Marches are for expression, reviving the Ummah, moving our
    emotions, conveying our solidarity to our brothers, strengthening these
    ineffectual leaders of ours- let them know that these peoples are standing
    in support.. we hope to organise a march in Qatar within a few days, as we
    had done in the beginning of the Intifada.. and there have been marches in
    many countries..
    Finally there is the spiritual jihad. What is spiritual jihad? It is for our
    brothers to be always alive in our consciences, to constantly pray for them,
    when we are alone, in our prayers, and especially to have Qunut an-Nawaazil
    (qunut prayer at the time of hardship) in mosques. I call all imams to make
    duaa against the oppressors, the Zionists, the Americans, and anyone who
    aids the Zionists. Bush says that Arafat must stop terrorism. What the
    Palestinians are doing is terrorism, while what Sharon does is
    self-defence!! To make duaa against these oppressors. I call on all imams to
    pray salaat al-ghaa'ib (absent) on the martys. This is all mobilisation for
    the Ummah, so that the Ummah stands in battle, and feels it is in a battle,
    and that way we will really stand in solidarity with our brothers. And their
    battle is in fact our battle, it is not the battle of the Palestinians, it
    is the battle of the Muslim Ummah from the East to the West.

        Sheikh Qaradawi sahib should show prove his preaching with his own example! Rather than asking other to come achive martydom, he should be the first one to go ...

        So, mushi let me know when he does and I will take all his writings more seriously!

          A scholar of his calibre, particularly with regards to his strong and principled stand against extremism, is of far greater good to the Ummah alive than dead.
          Muslims are so good at dividing that they can divide the atom. If you see two Muslims, probably they belong to 3 parties.

            I disagree, on the grounds of the Sunnah of AnHazoor (saw).

            Anyway, let me know how many of his sons and daughters went to Palestine?

              Ahmadjee, your claim is just as stupid as Mr.Qadian's claim to prophethood.

                I dont think putting so many muslims to death will solve this problem. The israelis and america are technologically far more superior than us in the battlefields. The only solution is to strenghthen the bonds of brotherhood among muslim countries and establish well economically. We have already put a lot to death by sending them to Afghanistan without any benefit.

                  But sending Muslim teenagers to commit suicide is a great feat of brilliance!

                    Scholars have different opinions on it. If you ask me personally, I may not commit suicide bombing, because I do not want to take the risk ( in case, it's counted as suicide by Allah (SWT)). But, let's pray that those who do it for the sake of Islam, are forgiven by Allah and get the one of the highest stations in Paradise. Aameen.

                      What is your opinion of those people who actually encourage others to commit suicide bombings?

                        I don know but i was thinking that the meaning of suicide is "one to kill himself Purposely" but don those guys "Shaeed them self purposely" cuz they are fighting a war with kufar.. is there a difference or no..

                          I thought we were discussing people who send others to give their life up & suicide, not those who do it.

                          I would really like if someone can answer mufakkar's question.

                            Shaykh Qaradawi is widely known in the Global Islamic Movement as a sound scholar and may Allah be pleased with him. His teachings and fatwas are followed by many many muslims from the movement. I posted the thread up for people to read. I think its best if one wishes to speak about who tells what and why on another thread? Its just a suggestion. Thanks for reading though.
