What is #Jihad and is killing people in the streets a shortcut to #Paradise?

Mufti Zubair Dudha

In our times we have the Mashaykh (Schol­ars, Spir­i­tu­al Men­tors), these are the peo­ple who exert them­selves phys­i­cal­ly and spir­i­tu­al­ly to please their Lord (Almighty). We learn Islam from their prac­tise and from their meth­ods. Mashaykh (Schol­ars, Spir­i­tu­al Men­tors) are the peo­ple known and respect­ed for their piety and reli­gious learning.

We need to be look­ing at what our Mashaykh are doing in these days? Those who are staunch on not break­ing any com­mands of Allah (Almighty). You do not see these Mashaykh going around in pub­lic and killing peo­ple in pub­lic. If (killing peo­ple on the streets) was JIHAD then those who are mak­ing spir­i­tu­al JIHAD and sup­press­ing their desires, will they leave this phys­i­cal JIHAD out?

What are they doing dur­ing Ramad­han? They are fast­ing, they are per­form­ing Taraweeh and Taha­jjud (night­ly prayers), and they are engaged in recita­tion of the Qur’an. If there was a short­cut avail­able to get to par­adise, will they not take a short­cut? Why exert your­self for 30 days (night and day) when you can just go kill your­self (and oth­ers) and go straight to par­adise? All this fast­ing and wor­ship day in and day out, why do all of this? Because…

Killing peo­ple on the streets is not JIHAD, its FASAAD (cor­rup­tion).
