الإمامُ الحسينُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) ـ سُـئِـلَ عَنِ الـجَهادِ: سُـنَّةٌ أو فَـرِيضةٌ؟ فقالَ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) ـ : الجِهادُ على أرْبَعَةِ أوْجُهٍ : فجِهادانِ فَرْضٌ وجِهادُ سُنَّةٍ لا يُقامُ إلّا مَعَ فَرْضٍ وجِهادُ سُنَّةٍ ، فأمّا أحَدُ الفَرْضَيْنِ فجِهادُ الرَّجُلِ نَفْسَهُ عن مَعاصِي اللّه‏ِ وهو مِنْ أعْظَمِ اجِهادِ وَمُجاهَدَةُ الّذين يَلُونَكُمْ مِنَ الكُفّارِ فَرْضٌ . وأمّا الجِهادُ الّذي هو سُنّة لا يُقامُ إلّا مَعَ فَرْض فَإِنَّ مجاهَدَةَ العَدُوِّ فرضٌ على جميع الاُمّة لو تركوا الجهاد لَأتاهم العَذابُ وهذا هو مِنْ عذابِ الاُمَّةِ وهُوَ سُنَّةٌ عَلَى الإمامِ وحَدُّهُ أنْ يَأتِيَ العَدُوَّ مَعَ الاُمَّةِ فيجاهِدَهم . وأمّا الجِهادُ الذي هُوَ سُنّةٌ فكُلُّ سُنّةٍ أقامَها الرَّجُلُ وجاهدَ في إقامَتِها وبُلُوغِها وإحيائِها فَالعَمَلُ والسَّعْيُ فيها مِنْ أفضلِ الأَعْمال لِأنَّها إحياءُ سُنَّةٍ وقَدْ قالَ رسولُ اللّه‏ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ) : «مَنْ سَنَّ سُنَّةً حَسَنَةً ‏فَلَهُ أجْرُها وأجْرُ مَنْ عَمِلَ بِها إلى يَوْمِ القِيامَةِ مِنْ غَيْرِ أن يَنْقُصَ مِنْ أجُورِهِم شَيْئا».

Imām Ḥusayn ibn ‘Alī ibn Abī Ṭālib (a.s.) was asked about jihad, as to whether it was a recommended act or an obligatory one, to which he replied, ‘Jihad comes in four forms, two of which are obligatory, one of which is recommended but can only be undertaken with an obligation, and one which is recommended. The first obligatory jihad is that which a man wages against his own self in keeping away from acts of disobedience to Allah. This is one of the greatest forms of jihad. Waging jihad against those disbelievers who persecute you is also an obligation. As for the jihad which is recommended but can only be undertaken with an obligation is to fight the enemy, which is an obligation upon the whole community, and which if they abandon, they are all punishable for it. It is a recommendation upon an Imam, the limit of which is to come and face the enemy and fight them with his community. As for the jihad which is recommended, it is [embodied in] every recommended practice which a person performs and strives in its performance, its completion and its revival. Such an act, and the striving to perform it is one of the best deeds because it is a revival of the Prophetic practice, and the Prophet (SAWA) has said, ‘Whoever establishes a good habitual practice, he will get his own reward for it as well as the reward of whoever performs it after him until the Day of Resurrection, without any decrease in their reward thereof.’
Imām Husayn ibn ‘Alī ibn Abī Ṭālib (a.s.)

On seeing the returning armies from the battlefront, he said, ‘Blessed are those who have performed the lesser jihad, and have yet to perform the greater one.’ When asked, ‘O Messenger of Allah, what is the greater jihad?’ the Prophet replied, ‘The jihad of the self’, and added, ‘The best jihad is that of one who combats his own self that is between his two sides.

Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 244

السَّاعي عَلَى الأرْمِلَةِ وَالمِسْكينِ كَالمُجَاهِدِ في سَبِيْلِ اللَّهِ، أوِ القَائِمِ اللَّيْلَ الصَّائِمِ النَّهَارَ

He who makes efforts in favor of orphans and widows is like unto a struggler in the way of God or the one who stands up to prayer at night and keeps fast during the day.
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Nahj al Fasahah, Tradition No. 877, Page No. 124

ذَاكِرُ اللَّهِ في الغَافِلِيْنَ بِمَنْزِلَةِ الصَّابِرِ في الفَارِّيْنَ

He who remembers God among the negligent is like unto the one who among the deserters (of the battlefield) remains steadfast and patient.
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Nahj al Fasahah, Tradition No. 879, Page No. 124

وَسَطِ الشَّجَرِ الَّذِي قَدْ تَحَاتَّ مِنَ الصَّرِيْدِ، وَذَاكِرُ اللَّهِ في الغَافِلَيْنَ يُعَرِّفُهُ اللَّهُ مَقْعَدَهُ مِنَ الجَنَّةِ، وَذَاكِرُ اللَّهِ في الغَافِلِيْنَ يَغْفِرُ اللَّهُ لَهُ بِعَدَدِ كُلِّ فَصِيْحٍ وَأعْجَمَ.

He who remembers God among the negligent is like unto the one who fights the deserters of the battlefield, is like unto a lamp in a dark house, and is like unto a green tree among cold-stricken leafless ones-one whose place of residence in Paradise is shown to him by God, and whose sins will He forgive even if they amount to the number of silent and speaking people.
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Nahj al Fasahah, Tradition No. 880, Page No. 124&125

لَيْسَ الجِهَادُ أنْ يَضْرِبَ الرَّجُلُ بِسَيْفِهِ في سَبِيْلِ اللَّهِ تَعَالى، إنَّمَا الجِهَادُ مَنْ عَالَ وَالِدَيْهِ وَوَلَدَهُ فَهُوَ في جِهَادٍ، وَمَنْ عَالَ نَفْسَهُ فَكَفَّهَا عَنِ النَّاسِ فَهُوَ في جِهَادٍ

Holy war is not mere fighting in the way of the Almighty God. Verily, it is to shoulder one’s own parents and offspring’s burdens, and the man who carries his own burden to be needless of people is a struggler (in the way of God).
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
