Protecting Your Children From Calls To The Alleged Jihād | Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān
The Questioner: May Allāh reward you with good. This [questioner] has a child who has insisted several times. He says I will go to participate in Jihād. So should I give him my permission or not?
Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān: “This is what I have told you to protect your children from. They call it Jihād in order to generate interest from the people in it. They present verses of the Qurʾān about Jihād and ḥadīth regarding Jihād in order to generate interest from the people in it but it is not Jihād. It is not Jihād. It is recruiting and mobilizing them against you.
You have already witnessed this. There isn’t a need; you’ve already seen it. You’ve seen this [so-called] Jihād and what it really is. You’ve seen it in their bringing the (the blades of) their Jihād to your necks. You’ve already seen it in their bringing the (the blades of) their Jihād to your necks. This is the Jihād that they want.
They want to mobilize your children against you while they themselves relax. They busy you with your children; this is what they want. So do not leave your children alone to go out with people you do not know and you do not know their beliefs are or their methodology. Do not ever leave him alone. You are responsible for your child. Yes.”
