A word that apparently used to mean something peaceful in Arabic according to the erudite advocates of the peaceful version of Islam. The correlation between exploding buildings and the word jihad today suggests that it has become something different. Much like a holy war. Or a path towards tranquility... in the form of jihadis (not to be confused with jedis) treading over the dead bodies of those who never wished evil upon them. Most importantly, it's a word we should use playfully to piss off the political correctness pundits and the assholes who believe it will benefit them in the afterlife to kill innocent people.

The word Jihad comes from the root word jahada, which means to struggle. At the individual level, jihad primarily refers to the inner struggle of being a person of virtue and submission to God in all aspects of life
Terrorism is usually defined as ideologically motivated indiscriminate violence that targets civilians, with the intention of inspiring terror in order to achieve political ends. Although this definition ignores the reality of state terrorism, it is clear that terrorism has no place in the noble concept of Jihad. Even Jihad that involves physical conflict is the very antithesis of terrorism, as is clear from the following differences:

1. Jihad can be launched only by an established authority as a policy in order to deter aggression. Terrorism, on the other hand, is committed by individuals or groups that have no legitimacy to speak for the majority. When terrorism is committed by states, it usually depends on misleading the masses.
2. Jihad is limited to combatants while terrorism involves indiscriminate killing of civilians.
3. Jihad, when the need arises, is declared openly, while terrorism is committed secretly.
4. Jihad is bound by strict rules of engagement while terrorism is not bound by any rules.

jihad is more of a misguided ideology rather than a struggle torwards god .Jihad is a condition that results from years of brainwashing people into believing that you must fight those who are not like you. mohammed says fight those who are non believers

Holy islamic war where extremist radical islamic groups brainwash sex-deprived teenage boys by promising them 72 virgins in heaven if they become a terrorist martyr and blow themselves up.
"Man... I'm so horry i'm gonna do jihad and strap a bomb to myself and blow up a bus so I can get my 72 virgins."

Jihad literally means "to struggle." In the military sense it is meant in the context, "to struggle against oppression." Jihad is therefore an act to liberate people from the oppression of tyrants. Jihad is not illegal acts of terror against innocent people.

When tabloid journalism and fanatic regimes mistakenly inform the masses that Jihad is "to commit illegal acts of terror," they are revealing their ignorance, the lack of their research, and the extent of their unprofessional & deceitful approach to the subject.
Many Muslums believe that there is a Jihad against the United States, Globalization, etc.

When you're angry with your girlfriend, after she falls asleep, cum on her forehead, and stick the pillowcase to it. When she wakes up, it will be stuck to her face like a muslim head wrap kimar.
Last night my girl pissed me off, so when she fell asleep I gave her that good jihad. She looked like a muslim chick when she woke up.
