12. Hajj or Jihad?


عَنِ الصَّادِقِ (ع) أَنَّهُ قَالَ: مَا سَبِيلٌ مِنْ سَبِيلِ اللٌّهِ أَفْضَلُ مِنَ الْحَجِّ إِلاَّ رَجُلٌ يَخْرُجُ بِسَيْفِهِ فَيُجَاهِدُ فِي سَبِيلِ اللٌّهِ حَتَّى يَسْتَشْهَدُ.

It has been narrated from as-Sadiq [Imam Ja’far Ibn Muhammad] (peace be upon him) who said, “There is no path from the paths of Allah which is greater than Hajj, except when a person comes out with his sword and strives in the way of Allah until he is martyred.”
