Reflect on what you just said, sir.

Reader comment on item: Jihad: The Fight Over Meaning
in response to reader comment: FIGHT FOR PEACE

Submitted by Fizza Ahmed (United Kingdom), Apr 30, 2011 at 03:57

Jihad isnt about picking up a sword and killing all the non believers, jihad is mainly about self preservation.The Quran does call for "jihad" as a military struggle on behalf of Islam. But the Quran also refers to jihad as an internal, individual, spiritual struggle toward self-improvement, moral cleansing and intellectual effort. It is said that Prophet Muhammad considered the armed-struggle version of holy war "the little jihad," but considered the spiritual, individual version of holy war--the war within oneself--as "the great jihad."

So why are we wasting our time on doing small jihad, we should be spending our time looking at ourselves not others.

And by the way Mr Sajid, I can clearly say the YOU arent going to get anywhere with that hate of yours. and also look at the state of your own country then start hating the U.S
