Abstract

Jihad in Islam is not a war that is termed a "religious war” (al-harb al-muqaddasah) - as perceived by Westerners all along. However, Jihad is: any action accompanied by sincerity, every useful perseverance, and every firmness of faith in the soul, so that we are able to fight against the various challenges in this life, which continue to evolve all the time in our souls, and in our environment. Therefore Jihad is a fountain that never diminishes for every Muslim to drink and to serve as a source of strength and energy so it creates a perfect readiness in assuming a responsibility to submit to the will of Allah SWT based on awareness and belief. Indeed jihad is a form of preparedness for Muslims as a form of self-defense of the enemies of Islam for the establishment of Islamic law in Islamic social life in the Islamic State. The history has spoke since Islamic countries have never been peacefull, human rights abuses and wars as historical evidence shows. That the enemies of Islam in this hemisphere are very intelligent to turn facts with various ways and means owned. Yet the real terrorists are very clear, as clear as the sun in broad daylight.
