NO JIHAD BUT CLASS JIHAD
What is the Class Jihad?
Class Jihad is the idea that engaging in the class struggle is a religious obligation and constitutes a righteous act. Capitalism, with its injustice and usury, is fundamentally haram. To be forced to participate in it, either systematically or through a projection of military power, means that the ummah is being denied the ability to submit to all of God’s (SWT) commandments. For this reason, capitalist oppression is both spiritual and material.
As revealed to the Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) in the Holy Qu’ran, God (SWT) tells us we must struggle for the right to freely worship. Thus the class struggle becomes the class jihad.
Who are we?
Class Jihad is an attempt to create a versatile online Islamist and pan-left platform that features a collection of news, scholarly papers, educational resources, essays, and introductory guides for the newly radicalized, or anyone seeking to gain a better understanding.
The site was created by leftist Muslims, but it does not intend to only target Muslims for its readership. Everyone is invited to take a look.
