Jihad, in western minds, is a religious duty Imposed on Muslims to spread Islam by waging war; or the holy war undertaken by Muslims against those that do not believe in Islam.
But this definition is completely wrong because war is not holy in Islam. From Islamic perspective, Jihad is striving or struggle; striving to keep God and His Messenger more important than loved ones, wealth and one’s own self.
The purpose of Jihad is to spread Islam by wisdom not by the sword and sword should not be used but against dictators who stop and oppress who ever choose to be a Muslim.
And even in the case of war, Islamic rules encourage Muslims to Jihad, it prohibits believers killing women, children and old people. In addition, it prohibits them from destroying houses and cutting trees.
