Jihad is a war that Muslims fight against non-Muslims. It is considered a holy crusade that each Muslim must take according to the Quran.
There are different ways that jihad can be waged. According to the Quran and Hadith, it can be fought with the heart, the tongue, the hand, or the sword.
The nature of the battle changes according to place and enemy. A non-believer who lives as a dhimmi – a second-class citizen in an Islamic country – is fought with the heart, not violence. Countries or people that do no accept dhimmi status, that live in or influence lands that are considered to be “Muslim lands” are combated with force.
In modern times, the banners of jihad first appeared on the battlefields. It spread to Muslim countries and then to the center of western cities. It can now be found on college campuses. There are already news reports that it is arriving in smaller communities – perhaps like your neighborhood.
The banners will be different, depending on the makeup of your town and country. But make no mistake, the jihad is the same.
