This is a lecture about JIHAD

  1. I also found this on the web...it is interesting and also shows some of the things that Bin Laden has taken out of context and given his own interpretation to. The big thing that stood out to me was that this "war" that he is fighting is to be done in the "hereafter" and only with those that truly don't believe.

    So get a cup of coffee and learn. Knowledge is power!!!

    Thanks for the link, essarge. I don't have time to read it now, but hope to get to it later.

    One of my problems with the way the term "jihad" has been flung around lately is that in its most common and/or correct usage, it does not mean "holy war". Rather, it refers to an effort, a struggle, an endeavor, and is usually meant to define the inner struggle and growth of a devout Muslim.

    One of the most concise, straightforward and readable articles I have read on Islam in the past month is:
