Reader comment on item: Sarah Palin Endorses 'Bomb Iran'
in response to reader comment: our dear dogagas and the word al-jihad

Submitted by dogagas (Canada), Mar 14, 2010 at 18:58

I told you that the offensive and defensive jihad is not mentioned in the Quran, only jihad is. This is true for nearly every Islamic concept. The 5 daily prayers are not mentioned in the Quran, yet all muslims agree they are an essential part of Islam. This is because of the concept of "ijma" which is an Arabic term, not an urdu one. It means consensus. The Prophet (pbuh) said that his entire community would not agree upon an error. The Hadith is used to interpret the Quran, and that is how almost every Islamic concept, be it Prayer, or fasting, and even Jihad is built.
Be a little intellectually honest please.
