Dr Pipes

I was able to find this youtube video by the revered modern Islamic scholar el-Sheikh al-Albani and he dismissed the bogus smaller/greater jihad hadith used by Muslim apologists and their supporters in the New Left in-order to change the meaning of the word jihad from being holy war to some bogus inner struggle and here is the video


el-Sheikh el-Albani says that the above hadith should be dismissed because al-isnad (or those names that transmitted the hadith) are unreliable then he says in regard to the meaning of the hadith it is incorrect because leaving one's home (to fight in the cause of Allah) is more important (for Islam) than to stay in your own home working on one's "inner struggle"

It is very clear that al-Albani is saying that the word jihad means military struggle against non Muslims and not some bogus inner struggle

The truth is in classical commentaries on the Qur'an, Muhammad's biography and in the so called el-Kutub al-Sitta or the 6 Sahih collections of al-Ahadith Jihad means holy war and absolute shame that our MSM keep repeating the same fraud about some bogus inner struggle

And to paraphrase Fernandez Morera may be early Muslims Muhammad included did not get the real meaning of the word jihad and now 1400 years later Linda Sarsour and non Arabic speakers from India (eg: members of al-Ahmadiyya cult) know the real meaning or the word jihad
