Quotes from Shaykh Anwar Al-Awlaki

Shaykh Anwar Al-Awlaki said:

“The Quran is what guides people to the truth and tells them of what is to come. It is a Book that purifies a person’s soul. The Quran puts everything into perspective and tells you what the Dunya really is.” [From his lecture titled, “Constants in The Path of Jihad”]

Shaykh Anwar Al-Awlaki also said:

“In defensive jihad there is no da’wah since you are repelling the enemies from the land. People say, “Why are you treating the occupiers so brutally? Shouldn’t you give them da’wah?” No, he came to our land and so we will treat him brutally. You can only give da’wah to him in his land. If they come with an army, you meet them with equal strength. If there is defensive jihad in the land, it is more pleasing in the sight of Allaah to do jihad than to do da’wah.” [From his lecture titled, “Constants in The Path of Jihad”]

Shaykh Anwar Al-Awlaki said:

“If you feel you have customize your Islam for a particular area, then you must make hijrah from it. If you can’t live Islam in its entirety, then you must leave that area. The Messenger of Allaah (saw) never said I should stay in mecca, be a good citizen, do some da’wah, stop preaching extremism, stop talking ill about their gods and society, in order to make the people love Islam. No, rather the Messenger of Allaah (saw) gave them Islam in its pure form and said that he has no control over it and cannot change it.” [From his lecture titled, “Constants in The Path of Jihad”]

Shaykh Anwar Al-Awlaki said:

“Any Muslim who is serious in his will for Jihad fee sabeelillaah, needs to give time for preparation. If the Muslim is defeated because he didn’t prepare (or didn’t prepare well), then he is accountable for that. Further, if a Muslim is not preparing at all for Jihad fee sabeelillaah, he is committing a sin by doing that because when Jihad is fard ayn, preparation is also fard ayn; and if Jihad is fard kifayah, then preparation is also fard kifayah. Thereforem preparation takes the same ruling as Jihad.” [From his lecture titled, “Constants in The Path of Jihad”]
