Arabic for "struggle." In Islam, it could be any form of struggle. It could be as simple as getting out of bed, or it could be as complex as saving a loved one from death. It does not mean to fight against all those who do not believe in Islam. It simply means to conquer over any struggle a Muslim may have.
The Jihad for Ameer today was to help his friend with something he could not do himself. With his knowledge and expertise, Ameer found his friend a man who could solve his problem, thus his Jihad for that day was solved.

jihad: Traditionally the definition was to retaliate against an enemy or injustice for religious Islamic reasons, but modern use by non-Muslims have used the word sarcastically to describe retaliation against an enemy for any purpose.

A word that literally translated means "struggle", although often "holy war." There is lesser jihad (holy war) and greater jihad, which is the struggle within oneself.
1. Goly gosh, Umar has put another lesser jihad on that jewish male.

2. Radical Muslims currently have a jihad against Jews, and Christians, and the western world, and hindus, and other muslims.

Contrary to popular beleif it does not mean "Holy War" that is right, those commercials lied to you. It's an Arabic word that means to struggle for a greater good.
