All in Islam are held very high!!! for example inheritance came up. why does a man receive more than the women, because the man is head of household and is financially responsible. the women don't have to spend a dime unless she chooses to from the kindness of her heart to help out. the word jihad means struggle not war or fighting that is always taken out of context. this word can be used in many ways and you must have an understanding of this language to get it. and as The Creator says in the holy book there is no compulsion in religion. HE has given us a free will to worship what we want in this life. on judgement day is when were all accountable! for what we chose to follow if it was besides what was revealed to man.
