 Terrorism is usually defined as ideologically motivated indiscriminate violence that targetscivilians, with the intention of inspiring terror in order to achieve political ends. Although thisdefinition ignores the reality of state terrorism, it is clear that terrorism has no place in the nobleconcept of Jihad. Even Jihad that involves physical conflict is the very antithesis of terrorism, asis clear from the following differences:
 Jihad is to please Almighty Allaah {Subhanahu wa Ta'ala}. Terrorism is to please Satan, theourcast
 Jihad is done in the way of Allaah {Subhanahu wa Ta'ala}, while terrorism is done in the way of Devil.
 Jihad can be launched only by an established authority as a policy in order to deter aggression.Terrorism, on the other hand, is committed by individuals or groups that have no legitimacy tospeak for the majority. When terrorism is committed by states, it usually depends on misleadingthe masses.
 Jihad is limited to combatants while terrorism involves indiscriminate killing of civilians.
 Jihad, when the need arises, is declared openly, while terrorism is committed secretly.
 Jihad is bound by strict rules of engagement while terrorism is not bound by any rules.
