Allah made jihad an obligatory duty on all Muslims to defend themselves against the enemies of Allah, and to protect their homeland, religion and interests from the aggression of the infidels and oppressors.
Allah, the Eternal, says:
“And fight them until there is no more sedition and the religion be wholly for Allah...” Holy Qur'an (8:39)
Allah has made jihad obligatory for every able Muslim man when it is necessary to defend Islam and Islamic homelands against danger. Islam has also made it obligatory for every human being to carry out jihad against his own self to defend his soul from envy, jealousy, deceit, cheating, lying, stealing, and all other evils that attack man's spirit.
Jihad achieves victory, power and dignity for the Muslim nation and rids us of the colonialists and oppressors.
