I think that it is pathetic when the likes of our dear Ceylan whose ancestors the Greeks and the Armenians and Syrians were brutalized by the Turkish barbarians now she is pontification about the meaning of a word and in this case al-jihad and this is an Arabic word right darling? so what do you think if I the big time kafir tell you about the meaning of a Turkish word how would you feel darling?

The Meaning of the Concept of "Jihad"

Oh I'm waiting for this one with great anticipation

Another concept that deserves clarification due to the content of this article is the concept of "jihad".

Now let us read item number one

الجِهَاد - جِهَاد :

الجِهَاد : ( شرعاً ) : قتالُ من ليس له ذمّة : من الكفّار .

And this it number one and let me translate it for you

al-Jihad in (Islamic) Law (means) fighting who has no protection from the kuffar (infidles)

It is all in black and white darling

More evidence from the dictionary? See item 3

- قتال المسلمين أعداءهم دفاعا عن الدين .

Or Jihad means Muslims fight their enemies in-order to defend religion (Islam)

It is all in black and white darling

And here is the disaster in item 10 فالجهاد في الإسلام حرب مقدسة

Or because in Islam al-jihad means HOLY WAR

It is not me the big time kafir that is saying this it is Arabic dictionaries darling

Oh more evidence well let us see what your master sheikh al-Azhar tells us about the meaning of the word al-jihad and the 4 stages of jihad

http://www.alazhar.gov.eg/islam/Quran/qurandb/QuranTopics.asp?ID=347

How come you did not know that darling?

That is, in Islam, "to carry out jihad" is "to show efforts, to struggle". Prophet Muhammad explained that "the greatest jihad is the one a person carries out against his lower soul".

But darling your sources also tell us that this is a حديث ضعيف which means that it is not even worth the paper that it was written on! How come you did not know that darling?

What is meant by "lower soul" here is the selfish desires and ambitions.

Really? where does it say that in the Qur'an or the dictionary? Let me help you you are making things up

A struggle given on intellectual grounds against anti-religious, atheist views is also a form of jihad in its complete sense.

gobbledygook

You need to stick to Turkish darling and shame on you for pretending to know Arabic when you do not
