Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, and blessings and peace be upon the noblest of all the Messengers. This is a small treatise that I wrote for those who are pining away for jihad and who hope for martyrdom in its way. The book is in 2 parts:
Part 1: Reasons for jihad
Part 2: Oh Islam!
I have concluded with a synopsis and observations. We hope that Allah will being benefit by it, and will reform us and reform others by means of us, surely He is the Hearer, the Nearby, the Answerer of Prayers. I intend the book as a reply to many letters which I receive asking for advice about coming to Afghanistan.
So come to Gardens of Eden, for they are Your original abode and therein are camping grounds; But we are captives of the enemy, so can we then return to our home countries and give up?
