Hadeeth 8 – ‘…returned from the Lesser Jihaad, to the Greater Jihaad…’
The hadeeth, “We have returned from the Lesser Jihaad, to the Greater Jihaad (i.e. the Jihaad against oneself)”
Related by al-Bayhaqi with a da’eef isnaad according to al-Iraaqee. Ibn Hajr said that this was a saying of Ibraaheem bin Abee Ablah, a Taabi’ee, and not a hadeeth of the Messenger ( ﷺ ).
