Transcript of Jihad - A study
Muhammad Fawad Bashir : 42195
Jasim Farooq : 42531 Presented By Introduction Jihad is an arabic word
Which means To
Strive But is incorrectly translated in English
AS Holy War
Terrorism The Definition What is JIHAD?
The word Jihad stems from the Arabic root word J-H-D, which means to strive
Other words drived from this root are effort, struggle, labor and fattigue.
It is an effort to practice religion in the face of opression and presecution. The Types Of Jihad To understand Jihad in the wider prospective we first should talk about the different types of Jihad. JIhad al-Nafs (Jihad against Oneself) in this kind of Jihad, the individual has to control his desires and not yield to worldly temptation, and that, in the light of Islamic scripture, is one of the highest forms of Jihad. JIhad ash shaitan
(Struggling against the Devil/lucifer) in this kind of jihad the muslims repels both the desiers and intellectual confusions with which the devil tempts mankind Jihad al-munafiqeen in this kind of jihad the muslims strive against the hypocrites. Jihad al-Kuffar
(jihad against the disbelievers) perhaps the most publicized of all the forms, this Jihad urges Muslims to physically fight for their cause against the non-believers i.e.those not of the Muslim faith. Jihad is not Terrorism There has been a misconception about Jihad in the west societies.
It is emphasized that at any circumstances killing of innocent people is allowed in islam
Either through suicidal or the means of aggression. "When it is said to them: Make not mischief on the earth, they say why, we only want to correct things, Indeed they are the mischief doers, but they realize (it) not." (Al Baqarah 2:11-12) Quran states again Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not do aggression, for Allah loves not the aggressors. (Al Baqarah 2:190) To those against whom war is made, permission is given (to fight) because they are wronged― and verily, Allah is Most powerful for their aid (Quran 22:39) in early days of islam the meccans kept muslims imprisoned
and subjected them to extreme torture and opression, only
because they accepted islam.
The Quran then commanded the Muslims that And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression and there prevail justice and faith in Allah altogether and everywhere (Quran 8:39) so Jihad is actually done for the sake of freedom of religion
where muslims can practice islam with no fear, and also for thesake of freedom of opression as the Quran states: And why should ye not fight in the cause of Allah and of those who, being weak, are ill-treated (and oppressed)?―men, women, and children, whose cry is: “Our Lord! rescue us from this town, whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from Thee one who will protect; and raise for us from Thee one who will help!?” (Quran 4:75) the Prophet also stated that: “Strive in the name of Allah in Allah’s way! Fight those who disbelieve in Allah; campaign, but do not indulge in excesses, do not act treacherously, do not mutilate, and do not slay children.
On the authority of Burayda, (Muslim) in the battle of badar the Prophet set out some
disciplines in which he stated that: You may harm no:
You may not cut down trees
And strike only those:
who have expelled you
who stole your rights and enriched themselves with your possessions The media and Jihad: The media in the west always uses the word jihadist for the terrorism groups such as AL-Qaeda, giving the negitive attitude towards islam and makes people think that islam is the reliogion of voilence.
According to the Media in West:
'jihad' include planning, preparing for, and engaging in, acts of physical violence, including murder, maiming, kidnapping, and hostage-taking"
which is a totally wrong interpretation. Jihad Doesnot mean "holy War" Jihad means effort or endeavors against man’s own self Jihad is to work hard to do right things. Jihad is to strive for good against evil In the west Islam is the most miss-understood religion, western prejudice, towards islam is as old as islam itself The term holy war is an invention
made by europeons, and is derived
from the study of war in european context. "the best jihad is (speaking) a word of justice to a tyrannical ruler"
(abu dawud sunan abi dawud) jihad is a struggle to do well and to remove injustice and oppression from the society. Conclusion: In Quran there is no any command for the
act of murder or massacre
There is not a single word in Quran which
Says that to murder and massacre is allowed at any circumstances. As the Quran reveals “…if any one slew a person - unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land - it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people.” (5:32) We are living in the era of Global village, in the modern society
the non-believers are living with the believers.
Being a muslim it is our duty to create better understanding among the non-believers
Being a non-believer it is our duty to understand islam and in a better way
No religion asks to kill people and islam is not the religion of violence
but is the religion of peace and love. Invite (all) to the way of your lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and
argue with them in the ways that a best and most gracious: for your lord
knows best who has strayed from His path, and who recieve guidance.
