Jihad = 'Holy war'. Agree or Disagree?

A very controversial term. i have seen it translated in this form. But how many of you see it that way? and if you don't agree with this meaning, what does 'Jihad' mean to you?

  • Jihad = Tyranny in the name of god.

    Ask any non-Muslim and he/she would reply the same if he/she has knowledge, is honest and didn't watch the speeches of Islamic leaders. They blindfold the people in the name of Allah for proselytising. These people are amazing when it comes to persuasion skills and even we would start to think that they are right and we should support them after hearing their speeches so, Muslims are way too easy.

    Actually, Jihad is a term referring to the religious duty of Muslims to maintain the religion. In Arabic, it means "struggle" or "resisting" (basically, war against unbelievers).

    It's same as feminism. What's the definition and what they actually do are completely different as night and day.

  • Heavily disagree. People never truly seem to understand what that term means. It's always taken out of context especially the media who love to hype shit up just to get more viewers.

  • No, jihaad is to struggle and strive in the way of God, there are many types of jihaad.
    Which can be from ones own personal struggles to holy war.

    You can be an old man with arthritis walking up the stairs to the mosque and that could be jihaad.

    Remember that there are rules to war, going and killing innocent people is not jihaad or anything Islamic!

    • So why do terrorists and extremists interpret it as 'killing infidels' and such? they are all interpreting it wrong?

    • Yes! Spot on!

  • A bunch of lunatics would rather kill people than face the pointlessness of their lives.
