If someone asks you ..."What does jihad mean?"
Straight away Your answer will be that "It means to kill non-muslims"
But on the bases of Quran and ISLAM this answer to opposite to the
Islam never tolerates unprovoked aggression from its own side;
Muslims are commanded in the Qur'an not to begin hostilities,
embark on any act of aggression, violate the rights of others, or harm
Even hurting or destroying animals or trees is forbidden.
Jihad does not mean to Kill non-Muslims.Muslims are commanded to defend
their right to freedom of worship, but not to "terrorize".
Muslims are commanded in the Qur'an to "enjoin good and forbid evil"
(9:112). The word Jihad stems from the Arabic root word J-H-D, which
Other words derived from this root include "effort," "labor," and
It should be clear to all the muslims that when Jihad is allowed and
when it is not.
Jihad does not mean to Kill non-Muslims.Jihad is only allowed in
situation when any non-muslim try to
remove muslims from thier homes.Defence is the right of every living
The Qur'an describes those people who are permitted to fight:
"They are those who have been expelled from their homes in defiance
of right, for no cause except that they say, 'Our Lord is Allah.'
Did not Allah check one set of people by means of another, there
would surely have been pulled down monasteries, churches, synagogues,
in which the name of Allah is commemorated in abundant measure..."
What does that mean?....
Is usama doing wrong by hurting innocent non-muslims (or even muslims)?
The answer to this question is "Yes...he is doing wrong" according to
"ISLAM and QURAN".
Every muslim should condemn any act based on hurting any "innocent"
non-muslim or muslim.
I am sure Usama is doing a sin and will be going to "hell" shortly.
No true muslim is in defence of usama ...and if someone is....then he
is not a true muslim because he is defending "SIN"
