"Jihad: A word which doesn't mean war against non-Muslims". SBS 28 August


Why do you promote Islamist lies about jihad. Jihad is indeed war against we unbelievers.
The classic manual of Islamic jurisprudence, the 'Umdat al-Salik (Reliance of the Traveller), which has been certified by al-Azhar University in Cairo, the oldest and most authoritative university in the Islamic world, devotes one paragraph to jihad as spiritual struggle and seven pages to jihad as warfare. It makes it quite clear that jihad is warfare against non-Muslims:
Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word 'mujahada', signifying warfare to establish the religion. And it is the lesser jihad. As for the greater jihad, it is spiritual warfare against the lower self (nafs), which is why the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said as he was returning from jihad. (Umdat al-Salik, O9.0. p599)
"Jihad" in the Hadith:
Of the 199 references to jihad in perhaps the most standard collection of hadith—Bukhari—all assume that jihad means warfare. [Ref]
Please, SBS, stop carrying water for Islamist apologists.
