The verses from Sura Hajj : 39-41 are to be read minutely. Verse 39 imposes strict conditions to wage an armed Jihad. Verse 40 says, it is to ensure freedom of belief and faith for all. Maududi misinterprets the verse 41 by saying that, this teaches the Muslims to grasp state power and establish goodness. While all the virtues mentioned in the verse were already in practice before migration to Medina. No where it is made essential to grab power.
