Jihad

an

Qur

This is Islam

A Muslims duty is to call the


non-Muslims to Islam and to
explain to them about Islam
and about God.
I see

The call to Islam


is not meant to be
imposed on anyone. People
are completely free to make
their choice, if they want
to follow it or not.

This is also another


form of Jihad. A Muslim
can use his tongue, pen
and other means
to do so.

Jihad

A Muslim has to stand against injustice and help all


those in need. A Muslim also has to defend the other
Muslims against oppression and transgression
by the enemies of Islam.

God
commands that
Muslims lead peaceful
lives & not transgress
against anyone.
In Islam, it is
UNHOLY
to start war.

STOP!
NOOO!

#5

Islam does not call for


violence; rather it abhors all
forms of violence & terrorism,
whether against Muslims or
non-Muslims.
Islam does not teach
nor do Muslims desire
conversion of any
people for fear.
Islam, moreover, calls for peace,
cooperation, and maintaining justice,
and provides for the happiness and
welfare of humanity as a whole.

Jihad

In conclusion,
Jihad in Islam is working hard
and striving to be close to God
by mind, pen, tongue, hand,
media and, if inevitable,
with arms.

Next time you think


about Jihad, remember that
Jihad means struggle and
strive and not Holy War
or Terrorism.

Assalamualaikum
!

KEEP CALM and LEARN ISLAM

But if they are persecuted,


Muslims have the right to defend
themselves against oppression.
This is also another form of Jihad.

The word Jihad is derived from
the Arabic word Jahd which means
fatigue or the word Juhd
which means effort.

Jihad is one of the words


that have been misused due
to misunderstanding its true
meaning.

Its funny,
because in Islam
there is nothing
called The Holy
War.

Jihad
,

If we translate the words


Holy War into Arabic, we find
Harbun Muqoddasah. but there is
no such word in the Quran
(holy book of Islam).

Jihad
In Islamic
teachings, there are
different levels of Jihad.
First, jihad against
ones self.

In Arabic, the one


who does the Jihad is
called Mujahid.

calling others to it is also


part of this form of Jihad.
Refraining from wrongdoing
and following Gods ways
is Jihad.

It is the intimate
struggle to purify ones
soul of evil influences by
learning and following
the true guidance.

In this sense, a student who


struggles and strives to get an
education and to pass all exams
is doing Jihad. So the student
is a mujahid.

Non-Muslim

Lets learn about


Islam together ~

Oooh! Tired

Mujahid.

The word Jihad means exerting


effort, struggling and striving to
achieve a desired thing or prevent
an undesired one.

Harbun Muqoddasah

In the West, Jihad is generally


translated as Holy War. A usage the
media has popularized.

Jihad

A firefighter who strives hard


to stop fire and save people is
also doing Jihad.

Then, there is the


Jihad against Satan.

This is done by
warding off the doubts
that Satan stirs up to
undermine faith

Go Away!

and also striving


against Satan to ward
off the corrupt desires
that he provokes.
