Parents permission for Mujahideen

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

 

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Dear respected brothers,


It is my understanding that if jihad is fard e kifayyah, on a muslim, than he needs to obtain parental permission to go to jihad, but what I would like to know is, whether or not someone would need the same permission to HELP, the mujahideen, either finacially, politcally etc.

 

Your answer would be most appreciated.

Answer:

 

Parents permission for Mujahideen

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 2524 Narrated by Abu Sa'id al-Khudri

A man emigrated to the Messenger of Allah (saws) from the Yemen. He (saws) asked (him): Have you anyone (of your relatives) in the Yemen? He replied: My parents. He (saws) asked: Did they permit you? He replied: No. He (saws) then said: Go back to them and ask for their permission. If they permit you, then fight (in the path of Allah), otherwise be devoted to them.

 

Your Question: but what I would like to know is, whether or not someone would need the same permission to HELP, the mujahideen, either finacially, politcally etc.

Only when one chooses to fight himself in a jihad which is fard-kifaayah, he is required to seek the permission of his parents. But if one wishes to help in any Cause of Allah Subhanah, be it with his finance, or his speech, or his pen, or his thought, or any thing else for that matter, it is not obligatory on him to seek his parents approval; provided none of these acts take him away from the serving of his parents which is a deed declared as fard-ayn (absolutely and unconditionally obligatory) by Allah and His Messenger (saws).

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your Brother in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
