Dr. Jamal Badawi (one of the famous Muslim speakers in the west) talks about the term ‘Jihad’ in the Qur’an. He also sheds some light on the methodology of engaging in conflicts or launching war in the Islamic Shar`iah. Jihad in Islam is not an act of violence directed indiscriminately against non-Muslims; it is the name given to an all-round struggle which a Muslim should launch against evil in whatever form or shape it appears.
Enjoy watching this short talk to learn more about Jihad and how the Qur’an regulates it under specific circumstances.
