All over the forum people have been debating jihad-this and jihad-that. So, I'd like to know, what do you think Jihad really is and what do you think it really means/signifies?

Jihad is a holy war. But it can also mean a war within yourself symbolizing your life's struggles and how you would fight against them. It is one of the most misinterpreted and misunderstood terms.

Ok lets calm down a little.

Jihad literally means to "fuck Israel up"

As I recall from a conversation I had with a muslim friend of mine who went to the Islamic version of a seminary school, the term "Jihad" appears in the Koran only 6 times, mostly in terms of the internal struggle you must wage within your own heart to do what is right instead of what you want. I believe there is only one reference to Jihad as an external war against other people, and it is quite specific in that such a Holy War can only be in defence of a direct attack - offensive war is not allowed. There are very strict rules of conduct, similar to the Chivalry Codes of Conduct, but probably even more strict, concerning the treatment of non-combatants.

Unfortunately, certain leaders use the simplified idea of Jihad to include any conflict where there are predominantly muslims on one side and other peoples on the other, in order to garner more power for themselves.

But everyone should know that the "Islam" that is followed by the Taliban and other extremists has absolutely nothing to do with the beautiful faith that is actually proposed by the Koran.

Charles, its very easy to say that, but apparently there is a connection, because over a million people in several countries (Sudan, Afghanistan, Iran, Saudi, Kuwait) practice a type of Islam that we know, where women are subjucated, pleasure is forbidden, etc....

thats a problem,

TWA,

Error is contagious, especially in countries where most people don't read. But don't compare the Shia and Sunni Islam either - they are different as well - like protestant and catholics.

Jihad-a peaceful idea, much like that of Christian Missionairies, gone awry when falsely interpreted.

I concur with Us330 fully...that is almost exactly what I was going to post.

Religion twisted to meet one's own needs is the most dangerous weapon in the world.

Cfalk,

The difference between Shi'a and Sunni (meaning tradition or custom) is only centered around who should hold the political leadership of the Islamic community (the caliphs) and what the religious dimension of their leadership be. The split occured pretty soon after the death of Muhammad.

Other than that, the core beliefs of the religion are similar as both read and pray from one book, the Qur'an.

The Sunni/Shi'a split really has very little reference in regards to holy struggle (jihad) or to the present Islamic intolerance of Yis'rael and the west.

kind regards,
russ

I wish you wouldn't generalize with "Islamic intolerance of the west"...I have Muslim friends who are much happier in Canada than in their former homes of Lebanon, Libya, Pakistan and Iraq.
