Hadith: 23 Feb 2014 (22 Rabi’ul Thani 1435)

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Abu Said Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) said, "The best type of Jihad (striving in the way of Allah) is speaking a true word in the presence of a tyrant ruler.”

[Abu Dawud Hadith # 4344 and At-Tirmidhi Hadith # 2174].

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al-Qasas Ayat 36. “when Musa (Moses) came to them (Pharaoh) with Our Clear Ayat they said: "This is nothing but invented magic. Never did we hear of this among our fathers of old." Also in Surah Taha Ayat 24.""Go to Firaun (Pharaoh)! Verily, he has transgressed (all bounds in disbelief and disobedience, and has behaved as an arrogant, and as a tyrant)." Jihad has many degrees. Preaching of virtue is also Jihad. The most meritorious of all is the effort of communicating the Message of Allah to an unjust ruler. Similarly, if a society is so much given to a vice that no one can dare to utter a word against it, then to protest against it can also be reckoned as the best Jihad.
