Jihad totally changed history and created a new political landscape.

First, the definition of jihad is not holy war. Jihad means struggle and it has many different uses. Jihad is so important that it is included in every Islamic text – the Koran, the Sira (biography of Mohammed) and Hadith (the Traditions of Mohammed). Jihad is 24% of the later Koran, 21% of the Hadith (Bukhari) and 67% of the Sira.

There are four ways that jihad is practiced. Jihad can be by the sword, with writing, with speech and with money.

A common defense of jihad is that it has two forms. There is the greater jihad which is the inner struggle overcoming bad habits. Then there is the lesser jihad of war. Bukhari’s Hadith has about 1400 hadiths about jihad. Only 2% of those 1400 are about jihad as a religious effort. So 98% of the jihad hadiths are about jihad as war

Mohammed was not very successful in spreading Islam until he became a jihadist. When he died every Arab  was a Muslim. It was jihad that brought Mohammed to power.

Jihad is the best action that a Muslim can perform. If a jihadist dies in his efforts, he does not suffer the punishment of the grave or the uncertainty of  judgment day, but goes directly to paradise. He will dwell among the heavenly virgins of pleasure.

Jihad totally changed history and created a new political landscape. The Middle East, Turkey, Egypt and North Africa were transformed from a Christian civilization to a Islamic civilization. For seven centuries Spain and Portugal were under Islamic rule. Eastern Europe, particularly the Balkans were ruled by Islam. Over the last 1400 years at least 270 million Kafirs (non- Muslims) were killed by jihad.
