Agenda to Change Our Condition - Sheikh Hamza Yusuf

Agenda to Change Our Condition :

Allah says at the end of of the Qur'an chapter entitled "The Spider,"

وَالَّذِيۡنَ جَاهَدُوۡا فِيۡنَا لَنَهۡدِيَنَّهُمۡ سُبُلَنَا ؕ وَاِنَّ اللّٰهَ لَمَعَ الۡمُحۡسِنِيۡنَ

Those who struggle in Our way, We guide them to Our paths, and Allah is with the people of excellence. (29:69)

Imam Sawi, in his commentary on the Qur'an, says, "This verse was revealed before martial jihad was prescribed, as it is Meccan verse; therefore, the meaning of jihad in the verse is 'struggle with one's own soul.'"

Imam al-Hasan said, "Jihad is to go against one's desire."

Fudayl b. Iyyad said the verse means, "Those who struggle in acquiring knowledge, We will guide them to the paths of acting according to it."

Sahl b. Abd-Allah said it means, "Those who struggle in obeying Us, We will guide them to the paths of Our rewards."

The greatest jihad is the struggle with one's self for the sake of Allah, and those who do so are promised this guidance and help from Allah for their efforts.

Now is the time to set out on the greater jihad with the provision of trust, the armor of the Book and the Sunnah, the steed of health, and the sword of resolve.

The path of Allah is indeed arduous, and it would appear to one looking at it that treading is too difficult for most of us.

Let us set out first and see how long we can last. God willing, a divine wind will blow on our backs, our feet will become light, and wondrous fellow wayfarers will show up with sustenance just when we thought we had none.

Our success is by Allah, upon Him we place our trust, and to Him do we return.
