#ur#o$e of /iha"
1n A.1B1, *llah declares t2o purposes of Jihad to test the ,uslims, separating belie"ers from hypocrites, and destroy disbelie"ers. 1n 9.AA he declared another purpose to ma4e his 2ord superiorF so that 1slam 2ill dominate the 2orld. There is a fourth purpose, 2hich ,uslims do not 2ant you to 4no2 about. 1t is not explicitly declared in the canonical texts, but it is exposed to those 2ho 4no2 2here to loo4 for clues. $ne crucial hadith has been bo2dleriCed from the on line "ersion of -han's translation of ?ahih &u4hari. *isha &e2ley did not bo2dleriCed it, but does not pro"ide named anchors so 1 can not lin4 directly to it,. 1t is mentioned from 1bn '(mar from the Prophet, may *llah bless him and grant him peace, D,y pro"ision has been placed under the shado2 of my spear, and abasement and humility ha"e been placed on the one 2ho disobeys my command.D Aha#ter 61( Book of /iha"

moti!ation
*llah tells us 2hat he 2ants genocide, and 2hat ,oe 2ants ransom money. The price of ,oe's admission to the celestial bordello is great slaughter, but he is more interested in ransom for capti"es. *llah 2ants to get ,oe into Jannah 2ith genocide. 8:67. 1t is not for a Prophet that he should ha"e prisoners of 2ar 8and free them 2ith ransom: until he had made a great slaughter 8among his enemies: in the land.

)onfirming Shari%ah
*l>?ayir The 1nstitutes, the ninth boo4 of the second "olume of +edayam lays out the la2s of Jihad according to the +anifi school of 1slamc la2. 3hile liars assert that 1slam forbids attac4ing innocent people and fights exclusi"ely in self defense, +edaya sets the record straight not belie"ing in *llah is an e"il 2hich must be extirpated by death or con"erion to 1slam. 1nfidels may be attac4ed 2ithout pro"ocation. 3ar must be carried on by some party of the ,uslims at all times. 1f Jihad is neglected in any year 2hen it is possible, all 2ho 4no2 of the obligation are in sin. The 2ido2s, orphans and property of infidels are plunder for ,uslims, but they 2ant us to belie"e that Jihad is purely for *llah's good pleasure in ma4ing 1slam rule the 2orld. JiCya is a species of punishment for infidelityF a payment in lieu of destruction . Pagan *rabs are not eligible for JiCya, they must be con"erted or 4illed. htt#:55&&&(ar)hi!e(org5$tream5he"ay$orgui"e--hamigoog<#age5n1935mo"e51u#

This "erse is similar to the "erse *nd fight 2ith them until there is no mischief 8disbelief:, and the religion be only for *llahF but if they desist, then "erily *llah sees 2hat they do. *nd if they turn bac4, then 4no2 that *llah is your ,asterF The ,ost #xcellent ,aster and the ,ost #xcellent +elper 8H A9> B0:.

This "erse sho2s that it is obligatory to call them to the right path before the 2ar. 1f they accept the call, there 2ill be no fightingF but if they reGect it then there is no ,aster except *llah, and +e is the most excellent ,aster and the most excellent +elperF +e helps his belie"ing ser"ants. 1t is 4no2n that fighting is prescribed so that the religion be only for *llah. ?uch a fighting cannot be started until the ad"ersaries are first in"ited to come onto the right path, i.e. the religion based upon monotheism. ?ome people 2rote that this "erse 2as abrogated by the "erse ;ight those 2ho do not belie"e in *llah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit 2hat *llah and +is *postle ha"e prohibited, nor follo2 the religion of truth, from among those 2ho 2ere gi"en the &oo4, until they pay the GiCyah 8tributory tax: 2ith their hand 2hile they are in a state of subGection 89 29:. &ut there is no 'uestion of either "erse abrogating the other, because they deal 2ith different subGects. The "erse under discussion is, as explained earlier, about the ,eccan polytheists and does not co"er the People of the &oo4 2ho are referred to in "erse 9 29. *nd the religion be only for *llah means that idol 2orship be abolished and the oneness of *llah be accepted. The people of the &oo4 do belie"e in $ne 9reator, 3e 4no2 their belief is in reality disbelief as *llah says that they do not belie"e in *llah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit 2hat *llah and +is *postle ha"e prohibited, nor follo2 the religion of truth. &ut 1slam is content 2ith their mere profession of monotheism.
