The true meaning of Jihad

The word ” jihad” does not always mean
” holy war ”

The word in Arabic means “struggle” or “resisting”

Otherwise known as al-jihad fi sabil Allah (Jihad for the sake of Allah)

While there is such a thing as ” jihad bil saif”, or jihad “by the sword”, many modern Islamic scholars usually say that it implies an effort or struggle of a spiritual kind

…Trying to be a good Muslim and nice to all mankind is jihad…
