“This is the path of Jihad, whether your Mother becomes ill or not, or your father passes away or not. You do not discontinue your prayers or break your fast if your mother falls ill. Similarly you do not turn away from Jihad.
Advance with blessing of Allah and persist on your path. Do not hesitate, waver or look back for Jannah is infront of you. And know that Jannah lies under the shade of swords”
– Shaykh Abdullah Azzam (رحمه الله)
