Jihad has two types::1-passive: it is a basic right for any creature to defend itself from threats they call it a defensive war.2-active:: it is somehow a Liberating war most of clerics shia and sunni thinks that this kind of war is just allowed under a God messenger like saint Muhammad or Mahdi in the end of world when Jesus also returns to fight against evils. muslim believe that Jesus will follow Mahdi and will want Christians to join him.

the above statements is about Tiny Jihad! the great Jihad is that you correct yourself and become a good human.

moreover Jihad is completely extendable to any issue that you do it only for God pleasure for example working to earn money to please your family and ofcourse for donation!

Because people are afraid of speaking out ,they only concentrate on the inner jihad


Muslims only fight if they believe it is in the cause of God. This is known as Jihad - striving, personal or in war. To be mentioned - the "Holy Wars" are NOT exclusively against non-Muslims, or any faith - they're against injustice, and that's why the so-called "Jihads" we see today are not actually Holy Wars - they are terrorism.


Same like how it was used before.Islam did not change.Then Jihad was fighting the enemy and now it is still fighting the enemy.


Answer 1There is, perhaps, no term today that is more misunderstood than the term "jihad". Nowadays, the word jihad has solely come to signify "holy war", terrorism, or the mass murder of innocent people. However, what is jihad really about and what is its correct meaning? The term jihad is in fact derived from the Arabic verb "jahada", which linguistically means to strive or struggle. In Islam, however, jihad means to exhaust utmost effort striving to please God. This, unsurprisingly, includes fighting, as fighting is a form of struggle. In fact, majority of the time the term jihad is mentioned in the Qur'an it means "fighting in the way of God" (for His sake), and to make His Word the highest. The one who engages in jihad is called a mujaahid; the plural is mujaahideen.Jihad is a very important part of Islam. Unlike Christians, Muslims do not believe in the idea of "love thy enemy" or turning the other cheek when we are attacked. Instead, we believe in the divine principle, "fight those who fight you." This general guideline and rule agrees with our human nature and survival instinct. That is because it is only natural for one to retaliate against aggression and defend one's life, property and wealth from any external attack.Sadly, this basic human right - the right to defend oneself - is nowadays denied to Muslims by modern-day democracies and so-called free nations, such as Britain and the USA. This is clearly evident in the fact that Muslims in Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine, Chechnya and Kashmir who are resisting the brutal occupation of their lands are continually branded and portrayed as terrorists and violent extremists by Western powers.On top of this, any Muslim in the West that has the fortitude to condemn the evil actions of Coalition forces is similarly branded as a "terrorist sympathiser" or accused of "glorifying terrorism" for believing in the right of Muslims to defend their land from occupation. It is not even allowed for us to discuss the causes of 9/11 or 7/7 - in order to gain lessons - without fear of being labelled a terrorist fanatic.The irony of this situation is that if tomorrow Britain is under occupation, every Briton would consider it their right, without any question, to fight for their country and defend their land, even if such actions were deemed terrorism by other nations.So, in summary, jihad does not translate as "holy war" or the killing of innocent people. It is to strive, with utmost effort, to please God and fight in His way. It is famously reported that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, "The best form of jihad is to speak the truth in the face of a tyrant ruler."(Abu Daawud and Al-Tirmidhi)The greatest tyrants today are those who prefer the rule of man over the laws of God (Sharia law). Jihad and the establishment of Sharia law on earth are the only two things which will unite all people, of all races, and rid the world of oppression, poverty and corruption for good.Answer 2Jihad is a part of the religion Islam. The word means 'struggle', even though many parts of the media report that it means 'holy war' or similar things so that they have something to write stories on.Jihad is completely different from terrorism. Even though organizations like al-Qaeda claim that they are following the Jihad rules, they are not.Answer 3There are two forms of jihad. One is an internal struggle to be true and faithful to Islam amidst all of the struggles and difficulties that the world presents. The second is the command to rise militarily in defense of Islam when Muslims are under attack, especially from non-Muslims. This second form of jihad is popularly considered the "holy war" type of jihad.


Muslims are everywhere today


It depends on what point in history you look at. They were once Polytheistic, but today in Modern Iran, they are strictly monotheistic Muslims.


Religion in Ancient Egypt consisted of Catholicism and polytheistic beliefs. Today, Islam is a dominant religion in Modern Egypt and many Muslims live in the country.


Jihad is a word that has a special significance in the history of Islam. It is understood by many in wrong context today. One of the most important aspect of Jihad is that it is a war to protect Islam and not spread Islam. Islam is not supposed to be spread by swords.Types of Jihad: There are two types of JihadsJihad-e -Kabira:Jihad-e-kabira or the bigger ( or major) Jihad is the war against the evil within. It is the resistance of a person against his evil desires.Jihad-e-Saghira: Jihad-e-saghira or smaller jihad are wars that have been fought to protect Islam.Jihad in context of Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W)The inhabitants of Mekkah would not accept any one turning to Islam. They brutally tortured any person who turned to Islam. Prophet Mohammad commanded Muslims to migrate to other cities. Some of the Muslims migrated to Medinah. People of Medinah were hospitable and they accepted the concepts of Islam. Islam was at rise in Medinah.The chiefs of different clans in Mekkah decided to kill Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W) and he too migrated to Medinah with his faithful friend Hazrat Abu Bakra Siddique. Thus the first Islamic colony was established in Medinah under supervision of Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W). Like any terretory, Medinah also organised an army. The Mekkan attacked the city of Medinah after the Treaty of Hudibiyah was broken and thus the first war of Islam was fought.Jihad just give Muslims as a community and as an individual , right to self defence. This right has been exercised by all the nations, religions and tribes in history. All major religions that have heroes related to war. Same is the concept of jihad in Islam.


As of 2009, an estimated 1,647,000 Muslims live in the UK.


AnswerThe Crusades are relevant today as a reminder of the evil that unbridled faith can create. They are relevant as a reminder of the destruction that religious intolerance can produce. And they are a reminder that religion can be used as a cover for selfish purposes, by people with the ability to control or influence the masses.The Crusades achieved nothing good for Christianity, but led to centuries of ill-feeling. Even today, the word 'Crusade' has nothing but negative connotations for many Muslims. If perhaps Muslims of good will remind themselves and others of the Crusades, then the parallel notion of jihad will be eliminated.


Today Egyptians are Muslims


In Indonesia (over 200 million Muslims live there).

The literal meaning is "struggle." This can be interpreted as internal examination to make oneself more righteous (so-called "greater jihad") or as taking up arms to kill people who don't believe as oneself does ("lesser jihad"). As you might guess, these rather different meanings afford the opportunity for much accidental -- and deliberate -- confusion. One way to get perspective is to know that "jihad" has the same two connotations as "crusade." Today in the West, "crusade" almost always means some noble struggle against a social evil, as "Crusade Against Illiteracy," but to imams and ayatollahs in the Middle East, it means "kill some Muslims," as it did in the Eleventh Century.


I believe that religion can be a problem because of the uncertainty of it all. Unless one has a strong and unbreakable testimony of their particular religion, then they will always have problems. Today even so called holy wars, the global JIHAD as proclaimed by Muslims and other many conflicts are result of religion.



As of October 2009, there are 16.6 million Muslims (61% of total population).



They are religious and pray to god


THE MOST RELIGION ISSUES ARE WITH ISLAMIC RELIGIONS,AND MOST OF THE TERROISTS ARE FROM ISLAM.NOT ALL MUSLIMS ARE TERRORISTS BUT ALL TERRORISTS ARE MUSLIMS.BECAUSE ISLAM IS SUPPORTING JIHAD AND ISLAM IS THE ONLY RELIGION ENCOURAGING TO KILL " KAFIR " ( OTHER RELIGIONS WHO DIDNT BELIEVE IN ISLAM ).
