- "But, as regards the reward and blessing, there is one deed which is very great in comparison to all the acts of worship and all the good deed[s] — and that is Jihad!" — Saudi publisher’s prefatory note, Jihad in the Qu’ran and Sunnah by Sheikh ‘Abdullah bin Muhammad bin Humaid.
- The rewards of Paradise are also promised to the observant Muslim, but the highest grades of Paradise, of which there are 100, are reserved only for those who perform jihad.
- Jihad is, by all appearances, first and foremost an act of religious devotion and only secondarily an act of economic and political rebellion.
