There are many perspectives on what jihad is and how to properly perform the required acts. As a general rule, the Greater Jihad is an introspective journey to conquer your internal demons and follow the Divine Laws more closely than previously. This kind of jihad should be entirely peaceful. As concerns the Lesser Jihad, this is usually in the form of warfare between Muslims and Non-Muslims or other Muslims, but can also be performed through non-violent protests.

However, there are wide-ranging views among Muslims and among Non-Muslims as to how they feel about the implementation or practices of jihad.

What is an example of a good Jihad?

Jihad is always good. It is an Arabic word that means struggle. Struggle for a cause or a goal. Every human is practicing Jihad by one way or another. The more is noble the cause or the goal the more noble is Jihad. Jihad has nothing to do with terrorism or killing innocents.Jihad is classified under two categories:The smallest jihad (or the Minor Jihad or military jihad), andThe greatest (or major jihad or self jihad.Regarding the smallest jihad (or military jihad), you are licit to practice it only in two cases:First: to defend religion, home, land, and people against any invaders and attackers.Second: to provide help and support to other people who are oppressed and unable to practice their own will and freedom of choice.In both cases of the smallest (or the military) jihad, Muslims are commanded, by Quran and prophet teachings, to be fair and just. You should not kill an innocent, a woman, a child, an old man, or any civilian. You are commanded not to be excessive in using force and not to terrify civilians.Regarding the greatest jihad (or major jihad or self jihad), you must always practice it (and strive) to:forbid yourself from any action against God commands or against His prophet (PBUH) teachings as what to do and what not to doto do good for yourself, your family, your community, mankind , and nature.


Do Sunnis and Shiites both believe in jihad?

YES. Jihad is a Qur'anic injunction, so there is no difference between the Sunni and Shiite views of Jihad. The only Islamic group that rejects Jihad as a general concept is the Ahmadiyya community, who strictly view Jihad as an internal struggle.Both Sunnis and Shiites see Jihad as a tenet of Islam and a religious duty to strive in the way of God. There are two general ways to do this, the Greater Jihad and the Lesser Jihad. The Greater Jihad is an introspective journey to conquer your internal demons and follow the Divine Laws more closely than previously; this kind of jihad should be entirely peaceful. The Lesser Jihad refers to conflicts and confrontations between Muslims and Non-Muslims or other Muslims, which often erupt in war, but can also be performed through non-violent protests, debate, and advocacy. It is the Lesser Jihad which is often cast as a Holy War.

How does the Qur'an refute those who shirk jihad?

Answer 1In a sense, depending on interpretation, the Qur'an refutes those who shirk Jihad by exile or, in some extreme cases, death. In Islam, shirking is considered worse than killing. Answer 2 Shirk; that means worshiping a partner to Allah (or God in English and same God worshiped in Judaism and Christianity); is the severest sin committed by a person. Allah may forgive any sin except the sin of Shirk. Regarding Jihad, there are two types of Jihad: the minor jihad that is military Jihad and the major jihad that is self Jihad. However, each jihad type has its rules and definitions. You be referred to related questions below for detailed information on Jihad."Say: if your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your tribes, the wealth that you have gathered and merchandise that you are afraid will have no buyers, and homes that you like - are all these dearer to you than Allah and His Messenger and fighting Jihad for His sake? Then wait for Allah to bring his judgment, and Allah shall not guide the evildoers." [Qur'an 9:24]. Refer to related questions below to know the real meaning of Jihad and its rules.
