Holy war, the duty to spread Islam by arms, recently modified to "holy struggle" by persuasion (Ahmadiya) and sometimes extended to include war against other Muslims deemed too Westernized (extremist fundamentalism).
Jihad can also refer to the internal/spiritual struggle within one self.

like a chess club, but without chess and without a club. But with strapping C4 to yourself and blowing up innocent people.
If only those Jihad could learn to use remote controls they could stand far away and make explosions.

Holy war in the defense of Islam or Muslim liberty.
Jihad is to struggle, fight, or strive in the way of God. This does not always mean fighting with violence, but also daily struggles. Trying to be a good Muslim is jihad.

More than one Jihad; multiple holy wars.

Also, a word that will likely give you an uncontested victory over your feeble-minded opponents in Scrabble.
When Molly used the word Jihads in Scrabble, Colton got so angry he threw a fit, flung the Scrabble board across the room, and promised perpetual Jihads against her and her family.

a word that has been interpreted a million different times and a million different ways.

radical Translation: kill anyone that is not muslim

educated Translation: War within oneself; struggle to find the true meaning of islam
people of little intellect often interpret the meaning of jihad, and a think it means blood shed.

A holy war being waged on all non-muslim people but especially aimed at western powers and member states of NATO by war mongering idiots intent on world domination by their faith because they view it as their "allah" given right. Comically these fuck-wits are actually blowing up innocent civilians along with sentencing their own people to death by suicide which makes them just as bad if not worse as the so called infidels.

Smell the coffee you dumb bastards..........your practically American!
That dumb jihad fuck who had shares in McDonalds refused to blow up his local McCafe even though technically it stood for everthing he allegedly disagreed with about the west!

Jihad is often translated as "Holy War", although a closer translation from its arabic origins is "struggle towards good", whether that means internal strife or fighting against those who attempt to destroy Islam.

Also note, the word Jihad does not mean to kill infidels as is often said by racist fatherless children ie-bastards, but rather defend Islam against those who wish to destroy it. Islam does not say to conquer the world and enslave or kill all infidels.
