Try and strife for supporting the oppressed
Suratun-Nisaaa’ (The Women) – Chapter – 4)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
75. How should ye not fight for the Cause of Allah and of the feeble among men and of the women and the children who are saying: Our Lord! Deliver us from this town of which the people are oppressors! And give us from Thy presence some protecting friend! And, give us from Thy presence some defender.
75. Wa maa lakum laa tuqaa-tiluuna fii Sabii-Lillaahi wal-mustaz-‘afiina minar-rijaali wan-nisaaa-‘i wal-wildaanil-laziina yaquu-luuna Rabba-naaa ‘akh-rij-naa min haazihil-qaryatiz-zaalimi ‘ahluhaa. Waj-‘al-lanaa mil-la-dunka waliy-yaa. Waj-‘al-lanaa milla-dunKa nasiiraa.
Yuqaa-tilu fii Sabii-Lillaahi - (fought for the Cause of Allah), this sentence has come three times in these verses. The aim is to emphasize upon the matter that the battle should only be for the religion of Allah Almighty. He approves that none should prevent any other from going on the Way of Religion. The war is with them only who do not believe in the true religion themselves; as well as obstruct others too from acting upon the religious instructions.
It is understood that Jihad means ‘to be prepared for fighting against those people, who prevent the human beings from the straight path and want to make others their own harmonious by violence. Sign of those misled people is that they view only worldly advantages of their own and their companions, and wish to keep others pressed forcibly for their personal desires. They say, “We are superior to all other persons and they should remain our servants”.
Contrary to them, there are some such people, who like goodness for entire humankind and consider their gain in the gain of all other human beings. Neither they are proud nor haughty. They do not want to keep others under their influence. They deem necessary to help the poor, the needy and the feeble people, and there is neither any interest of their own in it, nor they think about any benefit. Rather their aim is only to save the creature of Allah Almighty from any disaster. They neither claim any gratitude from someone, nor desire any partiality/favor. These people believe truly in Allah Almighty and His religion.
Allah Almighty commands that while those men and women, little, elder and weak children of any inhabited place would be crying and screaming for help, defence and protection against the tyrants, who have made them oppressed, then what has happened with you that you do not go forth to help them? Moreover, why do you not grip up your loins for fighting against the oppressors?
