For the readers from the Arabic language root JHD we have the following

1. Yujahid or he fights a holy war, mujahid or holy fighter and jihad means holy war

2. Yajtahid means he strives to improve, mujtahid means he who strives to improve, ijtihad means striving to improve and jihad ain't ijtihad or even johd as you shall see below

3. Yijhad means he strains, majhood means he who is strained, johd means straining

>don't think you even know what Jihad means, it means to strive.

The one who does not know is you

How many times we have to tell you that you need to stick to Urdu?

Oh my sources? Lisan al3Arab and Kitab al-jihad by malik

>If you really want to know more on the matter, may I suggest you buy the following book from Amazon or Borders. This book is by Dr. Davis Cook and is titled Understanding jihad"

Oh the old tablighee argument from kuffar! Why do we have to listen to kuffar when we can read the Arabic sources about holy war aka jihad in arabic something that you cannot do? Why the delusions?

Oh I urge you to leave islam and be free again
