Going to fight in Syria

Question ID: 26667

ASALAAMU alaikum

I pray you are well.

Recently in the u.k. A number of youngsters have been reported on the news to have gone to
Syria to fight.

People have been having discussions about these reports. These people have said that:
‘Its wrong to go and fight and leave families behind’, ‘obviously parents will be worried and it’s good that parents have informed the police and the police have managed to stop some from flying out’, ‘some of these youngsters get too educated and brainwashed and end up going and it’s not right’ etc.

Do such comments mentioned above make the people Kufr? What’s the real Islamic ruling?

Jazakumullah khair

These are not statements of Kufr. When and if Jihaad is Fardh Ein then permission is required from no-one.
