Financing the Jihad Part 3

Jihad, Understanding Jihad (The Mujahid's Guide) / Sunday, June 27th, 2010

The presentation in these booklets ought to be dignified and ought not to contain such tones and substances that are contrary to the spirit of the Jihad. As every Mujahid knows, that all the treasures of the world and heavens belong to Allah Ta`ala only and Allah Ta`ala alone will provide each and every need of the Mujahideen. But according to the Revered Sharee`ah of Islam, the Mujahideen are obliged to propagate the virtues of spending in the Jihad, as pronounced in the Holy Quraan and the Revered Sunnah. Once these pronouncement are delivered to the Muslims, then they have fulfilled their duty and after which the Muslims ought to be left to their own decisions. If some Muslims do not wish to participate in spending for the Jihad, then to knock on their door would be an insult to the Mujahideen, as they are appealing for financial help only for the Victory of Islam.

The second type of literature ought to consist of the commandments relating to the Jihad from the Holy Quraan and the Revered Sunnah. It should also emphasise those frightful consequences for those who abuse the Jihad’s funds. In this booklet every rank and file member of the Jihad Movement are to be urged strongly to adopt piety and fear of Allah Ta`ala above everything else. They ought to be made aware of the importance of the extreme caution towards the use of the Jihad Fund. These booklets should also lay down the Islamic rules and regulations concerning the Zakaat, the Sadaqaat, the spoils of war, the accumulation of the Faiy, the financial powers and responsibilities of the Ameer.

The powers and responsibilities of the commanders.

Quoting from the Holy Quraan and the Revered Sunnah. Thus avoiding any error that might be committed due to the ignorance of these commandments.

The Important Duty of the Department of Finance: An important task of the Central Finance Department is to compile a thorough and comprehensive inventory of all the properties and materials belonging to the organisations. This will include, even the fans and the mats, in the offices of the far flung cities, towns and villages. All the weapons and armaments of the military wing as well as all the equipment of the Propagation & Information Department should also be included.

Usually the Finance Department’s responsibility is limited to financial transaction and monetary activities, while all the various Departmental properties and materials comes under the jurisdiction of the various Departments. This arrangement does not seem logical and it might lead to some disorder. Therefore a complete list of all the resources and finances of the whole organisation ought to be made by the Finance Department, either by themselves or by the co-operation of the regional offices. Even the establishment of a new office in a foreign country will be accountable to and administered by the Finance Department for its resources, properties, materials and finances. In the event of the closure of a regional office, the Finance Department will also be responsible for collecting all the belongings of that office and entering into the records and checking against the acquisitions. Thus this system will safeguard all the resources, ensure the centralised control over the whole organisation and a proper check and balance would be in place, which will detect the losses or gains.

It will also remove any future threat of corruptive and fraudulent practices.

The Finance Department ought to register (with the Shura approval) the properties of the organisation, either in the name of the respected `Ulama, whose pious character is well attested and beyond any doubt, or by the establishment of charitable organisations and registering under their names. Care should be taken never to register the organisation’s property in the name of its leaders or in the name of the Jihad organisations, as the threat of a ban upon the Jihad organisation at a moment’s notice could not be ignored, nor the assassination of the leaders by the enemy’s agents, or their arrest by the government of their country. In any of these scenarios the loss of the Jihad properties and resources could not be ignored, thus it would be wise to protect them before any such danger arises.
