This short but valuable treatise contains forty-one authentic aḥādīth concerning the exalted topic of Jihād in the Cause of Allāh, the Most High.
Its author, the imprisoned, and well-known and respected Muhaddith and scholar, Shaykh Sulaymān al-’Ulwān, has compiled these narrations in order to shed light on the noble, but widely misunderstood ‘Ibādah of Jihād, a number of its virtues, along with some of its rulings as they relate to the science of Fiqh.
The work has been compiled in such as fashion, as many of the classical Islamic works were, as to facilitate easy memorisation of its text, and to provide the reader with the understanding of the author merely by glancing at the chapter heading. The aḥādīth and narrations that follow then provide the necessary evidence from the words of the Prophet - may peace and salutations be upon him - and his Companions - may Allāh be pleased with them all.
It is hoped that this work will be a source of enjoyment and great benefit to its readers and its author - may Allāh reward him and keep him steadfast upon the Truth.
