This book is a chapter taken from the book “Al-‘Umdah Fī I’dād Al-‘Uddah Lil-Jihādi Fī Sabīlillāhi Ta’ālā (The Pillar Concerning the Making Ready The Preperation For Jihād In The Path Of Allāh, The Most High)”, called “Wujūb Al-I’tisām Bil-Kitābi Was-Sunnah (Manhaj Ahl as-Sunnah Wal- Jamā’ah) The Obligation Of Holding Steadfast To The Book And The Sunnah (The Methodology Of Ahl As-Sunnah Wal-Jamā’ah)”. This book was written by Imām ‘Abdul-Qādir Ibn ‘Abdil-‘Azīz, may Allāh free him from the prison of the tawāghīt.
This is the fourth chapter that has been translated from that book, after “Ma’ālim Asāsiyyah Fil-Jihād (Fundamental Concepts Regarding Al- Jihād)”, “Ar-Radd ‘Alā Shubhah Muta’alliqah Bil-Imārah (The Refutation of The Doubts Concerninf Leadership)”, and “Qasam Mu’askar At-Tadrīb (The Oath Of The Military Training Camp)”. The latter two were joined into one book in English due to their relation to each other.
Along with translating this book, we also added footnotes, mainly regarding references for Hadīths, as well as adding certain explanatory comments for issues that might be unclear. Whenever these were added, they were preceeded by “Trans. Note”. Also, many times, the Imām would mention a Verse, then reference the Sūrah, but not the Verse number, so we added the Verse numbers wherever needed, but we did not add “Trans. Note”, as it seen as necessary.
We ask Allāh, Ta’ālā, to let the Muslims benefit from this book, and any good in it is from Allāh, and any mistakes are from ourselves and the Shaytān.
