Mashari Al-Ashwaq Ila Masari Al-Ushaaq

Imam Ibn Nuhaas
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 131 | Size: 2.5 MB

This book was considered the best book on Jihad by the late Shaykh Abdullah Azzam. It was written by Ahmad Ibrahim Muhammad al Dimashqi (died 814 hijri) – commonly known as Imam Ibn Nuhaas. He was a scholar and Mujahid and was martyred fighting the Roman army in the year 814 Hijri in Egypt. This translation is based on an abridged version of the book done by Salah al Khalidi, professor of Tafsir at the Jordanian University. The original included some weak narrations, stories and dreams without chains of narrations and these were omitted. It also included sections that might be irrelevant to the modern reader and these were omitted too. Originally this translation was no more than personal notes for me to use on a series I have done on the book. Then some brothers, may Allah reward them, worked with the notes to turn them into a full translation of the book.

Ibn Nahaas

The great scholar Ibn Hajar al-Asqalaani, author of Fath al-Bari (commentary on Bukhari) wrote that Ibn Nuhaas was, “inseparable from Jihaad in the front line of Dumyat, and this is a perfect and exceellent quality.” Al-Sakhawi writes, ‘He was eager to do good, preferred living in obscurity, showed no arrogance or pride due to his knowledge, whoever would see him would think he is a commoner – a handsome man, with a beautiful beard, short and medium built. Spent a lot of his life stationed in Jihad until he died as a Shaheed.’ Continue reading

That was `Omar ibnul-Khattab, the man of extraordinary strenght, height, broadshoulderedness thickness of hands and feet; the man who forced the people to listen when he spoke, who always hastened away when he walked, and who usually caused much pain when he struck. That was `Omar who never felt scared of anything or anybody throughout his life. It was not strange to see him facing the first Muslims with all the violence and ruthlessness he had. There was a strong enmity between him and Islam; the reason for this was that, among his people, he had been a man full of power prudence zeal and dignity power to defend his people and their beliefs; prudence to be always having watchful care of their interests; zeal to spend his time and effort to keep them in union; and dignity to provide full respect and prestige for himself and his people always and everywhere. With all these honourable qualities, ‘Omar had had to face any call that might have caused disunion among his people, dispersing them, nullifying their aspirations condemning their beliefs and satirizing their gods. No wonder, then, that `Omar’s violence inflicted the severest persecution and torture upon the first Muslims. We have seen how he had inherited so much of his father’s brutal and violent nature. If we bear in mind that the most brutal and merciless enemy of Islam, its Prophet and its first adherents, was `Amr ibn-Hisham, after wards named “Abu-Jahl” by the Prophet and his companions, was `Omar’s uncle (his mother’s brother), we can easily discern that `Omar’s violence was the outcome of what he had inherited from his father, and of the hideous ruthlessness his uncle used to inflict upon the poor and weak Muslims of his time.
