If you take one things from this workbook, let it be this one. In our day and age there is so much confusion among the Muslims regarding Jihad … and we wouldn’t want any of our children to get too excited and get the wrong understanding!
The information on Jihad I used was taken from HERE. I am aware that this site is not free of problems, but I remember reading this fatwa a long time ago and it clarified it for me. Plus it is a collection of quotes from great scholars, from Ibn al-Qayyim to shaykh Bin Baz (raheemahuma Allah) and I needed something very brief. In my search I came across a wonderfully thorough explanation on the guidelines of Jihad by shaykh Ubayd al-Jabiree (hafeedhahullah) (scroll until the end of the page) which I recommend (to myself) and everyone before starting this workbook with our kids, Insha’Allah.
