Jihad is an Arabic word that means struggle. Accordingly, it could be either:self Jihad (or oneself struggle and is called the greatest Jihad), andmilitary Jihad (or struggle with others and is called the smallest Jihad)The purpose of self Jihad (or the major or the Greatest Jihad) is to self struggle to avoid doing wrong deeds and/or committing sins that are forbidden by Islam and by your community. For example, strive to do properly the ritiual worship, to do charity, to avoid committing sins, to be forgiving, to be tolerant, to be honest, to keep promise, etc.The purposes of Military Jihad is:First: to defend home land and home people against any invaders.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, Muslims (as in all other faiths) are commanded, by their religion, to be fair and just. They should not to kill a woman, child, or an old man or any civilian. They are commanded not to be excessive in using force and not to terrify civilians. America, in the media, refer to Jihad only as the military type, but forget about the self Jihad.The above is general view about what is called Jihad (especially in Islam) and its purpose and about those who are practicing Jihad and are called, recently, jihadists.This term is, however, wrongly used by some Western media. When they say that someone is doing Jihad by, for example, selling bombs to terrorist organizations, this has nothing to do with Jihad (reference to "Jihad Jane"). Also, killing civilians or terrifying the innocents to force some agendas is not Jihad but terrorism which is denounced in Islam. On the other hand, resisting invasion and occupiers is an act of self-defense and Jihad and should not be related to terrorism.It is to be emphasized that Islam religion, per Quran revelation to prophet Muhammad (PBUH), is a religion of peace, tolerance, forgiveness, and respect of all people irrelevant to their colors, cultures, and faiths.


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. It is enough to mention here that Jihad doesn't mean attacking others or waging wars against them. It means by military Jihad defending your lands, homes, religion, and families if you been attacked by outsiders.

Islamic Jihad is an important Islamic requirement. Its proper practice is subject to conditions. Jihad means struggle for a cause. Every one struggles in all phases and stages of his/her life. He/She struggles (practice Jihad) to fulfill life requirements, earn money for living, building up career, etc. Islamic Jihad is of two types: greater (major or self) jihad and lesser (Minor or military) jihad.

Answer 1It is not true. Jihad is important for both men and women. There are two types of Jihad. Self Jihad that means struggling to obey God commands and striving to get His satisfaction and blessings. The other type of Jihad is military Jihad that is in the early centuries was only withing men and supported by women for medical service and other social requirements.Answer 2When most Non-Muslims refer to Jihad, they are talking about the Lesser Jihad, which is to say military action on behalf of the Umma or Islamic Nation. The reason that women do not actively participate in this more violent form of Jihad is simply cultural misogyny that is dominant in most Muslim-majority countries and most Islamic communities. There have been increasing pushes towards gender equality, however, in acts of violent Jihad. For example, about 5% of Palestinian suicide bombers in the Second Intifada were women. However, in more traditional paramilitaries like ISIL, the cultural view of male superiority is more difficult to overcome than suicide bombing where it is clear that a woman can confer strategic advantages (such as hiding a bomb as a "pregnancy bump").

Answer AJihad is a struggle. there is lesser (war/violent) and greater jihad (inner struggle). so jihad in your case makes no sense in that it is not a body or entity to give its life. now a jihadist, as modern people like to refer to them, can give their life for a cause which is for the furtherance of Islam. the people who blow themselves up are more likely to be classified as terrorists over Muslims in their worldly struggle against those who have threatened their way of life. The Quran and the Prophet both support jihad, but emphasis is placed upon the inner struggle to improve oneself over armed violent conflict.Answer BJihad is of two types: self Jihad (or oneself struggle and is called the greatest Jihad), andmilitary Jihad (or struggle with others and is called the smallest Jihad)Self Jihad is that any Muslim should practice Jihad or self struggle to avoid doing wrong deeds and/or committing sins that are forbidden by Islam and by his community.Regarding Military Jihad, it is licit only in two cases: First: to defend home land and home people against any invaders.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, Muslims (as in all other faiths) are commanded, by their religion, to be fair and just. They should not to kill a woman, child, or an old man or any civilian. They are commanded not to be excessive in using force and not to terrify civilians. The above is general view about what is called Jihad (especially in Islam) and about those who are practicing Jihad and are called, recently, jihadists.However, it seems the question is asking about those who explode themselves and losing their lives. Those are not doing the justified military Jihad, as commanded by Islam and other religions, unless they are doing it against military occupants or invaders.However, those who explode themselves among civilians are not practicing the justified military Jihad, as commanded by Islam and other religions. They are not true jihadists. To the opposite, they are against Islam, and other religions, commands. They are terrorists, and not jihadists, for endangering and killing civilians and terrifying them. Islam and all religions are against terrorism. Those terrorists lose their lives against wrong cause.
