JAKARTA, Indonesia – Deputy Amir of Majelis
Mujahidin Indonesia (MMI) Ustadz Abu M. Jibriel
Abdurrahman hopes that Muslims could make Syria as an
arena of jihad. Because according to him only through
the path of jihad, that Islam can reestablish its
glory. Even though jihad is not a path that many
This was delivered in a "tabligh akbar" and fund
raising event for Muslims of Syria organized by Forum
Peduli Suriah (FPS)/Care For Syria Forum, Sunday, 19
Dzulhijjah 1433 H, ba'da Zuhr until 'Asr prayer, at
Masjid Al Azhar, Kebayoran, South Jakarta.
"Those who love jihad are not many. But, it is these
'not many' that Allah will recommend to buy," he said.
Meaning, quoting an explanation by Sheikh Abdullah
Azzam rahimahullah, Allah will buy a Mujahid with
paradise, where there is none who gains the paradise
except through the path of jihad.
"Allah prepares for the Mujahids a paradise which is
of 100 levels, unless with jihad we will not get it,"
Ustadz Abu Jibriel explained.
Ustadz Abu Jibriel said, he has spoken about jihad for
quite a long time. But actually he is ashamed as he
feels he does not deserve and is not worthy of
speaking about it. But remembering the importance of
jihad in this life, he still strives to explain it.
"I emphasize my embarrassment, to continue talking
about jihad so that you gentlemen and ladies love
jihad," he said.
Still talking about Jihad, he told about his
experience of engaging in warfare several times, but
Allah had not yet destined him for shaheed. In
Afghanistan, Philippines and Ambon, the desire for
shaheed was not yet granted by Allah. Due to that, he
hopes the jihad of Syria could sent him on to that
ambition. Remembering that jihad is a test for the
believers, so that it can be proven who only claims to
be a Mujahid and who are the real Mujahids. And jihad
is a test of righteousness, piety and reputation for a
Muslim. Therefore, Muslims should take a role in
helping the Muslims in Syria. The reason, the jihad of
Syria will also be the test field for the Muslims to
prove their iman to Allah SWT.
"The jihad of Syria will prove, whether we are asleep
or we are awake seeing the sufferings experienced by
our brothers there," said Ustadz Abu Jibriel fiery.
Therefore, Ustadz Abu Jibriel urged and encouraged
Muslims, for those who cannot go to the jihad arena in
Syria, to help their Muslim brothers and sisters who
are being massacred by the regime of Assad, so helping
to prepare the means of jihad of those who are in the
midst of conducting jihad is the same as conducting
the jihad itself, just as in the hadith of the Prophet
Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam. And by helping in the
path of jihad, it too can save them from the torment
of hell fire.
"If you are able to go for jihad, go! If you can
afford to do infaq, do it! If you are not capable of
doing both, do'a is your weapon. If you are silent
indifferently, it's the sign of your pleasedness with
the persecution of Muslims," he said.
On that occasion, also appeared as speakers besides
Ustadz Abu Jibriel (MMI), were Ustadz Abdul Wahid Alwi
(Vice Chairman of DDII), Ustadz Bachtiar Nasir
(Secretary General of MIUMI)), Ustadz FerryNur (KISPA)
and Ustadz Farid Ahmad Okbah. There was also fund
raising and distribution of books for free.
