Qur’aanic Verse 22.78:

22.78

Transliteration:

78. Wajahidoo fee Allahi haqqa jihadihi huwa ijtabakum wama jaAAala AAalaykum fee alddeeni min harajin millata abeekum ibraheema huwa sammakumu almuslimeena min qablu wafee hatha liyakoona alrrasoolu shaheedan AAalaykum watakoonoo shuhadaa AAala alnnasi faaqeemoo alssalata waatoo alzzakata waiAAtasimoo biAllahi huwa mawlakum faniAAma almawla waniAAma alnnaseeru

Translation:

78. And strive in Allah’s way, as one ought to strive in His way. HE has chosen you [the pronoun is in plural] and has not laid upon you any severity in following the way of life approved by Him for you – the lifestyle of your forefather Abraham. HE named you as the Muslims before and in this (Qur’aan), so that the Messenger may be a witness over you, and you may be witnesses over mankind. Hence, pray to Allah regularly and properly, give charity and hold fast unto Him! HE is your Guardian. How excellent the Guardian, and how excellent the Supporter! 23 

Study Note:

23. Had the Muslims but believed in and abided by just this one Verse, they would never have been in the sorry mess they find themselves in today.

  1. Foreword:- I think it is very very difficult to translate the Quran in any of the language in the true sence at was revealed. Yes it can be exposed to some extant. It is the greatness of this Quranic Arabic language that no similar words can be searched to full fill the requiremnet of its explanation in other languages.

    Sura Al hajj Ayaat no. 22/78

    Exposition:- (O’ people who are the believers ) strive hard for the establishment of the Divine rules but make this harworking to the right direction. so right as it deserves to be.He (Allah) has chosen You(Muslims) for this sacred mission . So never mind how hard or labourious it has to be.,imposed upon you..(basically it is in your own interest~ 2/286 as it will bless you the international leadership 2/143. (This order is the same given to every messenger in the past). The same order was given to messenger Ibraheem who was your forefather. The word Muslim name given to you was also in the each time of the messenger in the past.
    All the similar Mujahideen were given the same name previously and also for you. The messenger of the time will witness/supervise your program (After Him the Central Muslim Government will be responsible to supervise in the same manner) and you are to supervise the commen people.
    For this you have to establish the collective system(salaat) to enable the people to stand on their own feet(Zakaat) keeing in view of the Divine rules. Always keep in mind that Allah alone is your protector, gaurdian and helper( Therefore have complete faith in the Divine rules)as this is the practicable book to achieve every objective in the life.)

    Jihaad means to leave no stone unturned to achieve the objective.
    In the Quran Mujahideen is in opposit to Qaedeen. 4/95
    Qaedeen are those who who keep on sitting. . The lazy people. Mujahideen are those who use full potential to achieve the goal even if they have to lay down their life.
    Zakaat :- A system to enable the people to stand on their own feet..
