When challenged, "in which verse of the Qur'aan", you give me articles from the internet instead of just quoting that verse from the Qur'aan.

The article gives verse 9:33 as proof of "jihad":

Sura 9:33, simply put, predicts the conquest of Islam over all religions. Islam must dominate the world through jihad.

The word "jihad" isn't even mentioned in this verse. A brainwashed reader will think that it is in this verse without reading the verse.

That just goes to proves that you are not sure about any verse of the Qur'aan that says, "commit jihad against the infidel by any means necessary".

I will help you in this issue. There are 4 verses with the word "jihad" in the Qur'aan.

I quote them all here for your information:

(25:52) So do not obey the disbelievers, and strive against them with the Qur'an a great jihad.

(9:24) Say, "If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your relatives, wealth which you have obtained, commerce wherein you fear decline, and dwellings with which you are pleased are more beloved to you than Allah and His Messenger and jihad in His cause, then wait until Allah executes His command.

(22:78:1)
And strive for Allah with the jihad due to Him. He has chosen you and has not placed upon you in the religion any difficulty. [It is] the religion of your father, Abraham. Allah named you “Muslims” before [in former scriptures].

(60:1)
O you who have believed, do not take My enemies and your enemies as allies, extending to them affection while they have disbelieved in what came to you of the truth, having driven out the Prophet and yourselves [only] because you believe in Allah , your Lord. If you have come out for jihad in My cause and seeking means to My approval.

Other verses do not say "jihad" but "jahad". You mentioned only "jihad" because that's what you have been hearing from the politicians and the media. You have been brainwashed to believe that it is "jihad" and not "jahad".

Not one of the above 4 verses with the word "jihad" in them is saying "to commit jihad against the infidel by any means necessary".

Your claim is false and is a result of you being brainwashed by the politicians and the media.

In order to understand "jihad" as well as "jahad", one must understand the circumstances when these verses were revealed and what is meant by both "jihad" and "jahad". Both are related, one is noun and the other verb. None of them are meant to be attacking infidels like driving trucks into peaceful infidels.

This has been one of the most repetitious themes brought forth by non-Muslims in this forum. It goes on ad-infinitum until it reaches ad-Nauseous

Every reference of physical war in the Qur'an has been in regards to specific battles. These specific battles are covered quite well in Surat 5 and 9

To understand the hows and why's of the Qur'an one has to study the times and erra each Discourse was revealed.

One can not just pick up a Qur'an and use it like a cook-book with recipes on how to make a Muslim
.

The Qur'an is "Why to perform Islam" not the how to perform Islam. It is only part of the how.

Getting back the specific Battles mentioned in 5 and 9 are:

5. Name
This Sarah takes its' name from verse 112 in which the word mai'dah occurs. Like the names of many other surahs, this name has no special relation to the subject of the Surah but has been used merely as a symbol to distinguish it from other surahs.

Period of Revelation

The theme of this Surah indicates, and traditions support it, that it was revealed after the treaty of Hudaibiyah at the end of 6 A. H. or in the beginning of 7 A. H. That is why it deals with those problems that arose from this treaty.

5. Surah Al Maidah (The Table Spread) - Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi - Tafhim al-Qur'an - The Meaning of the Qur'an



9. Discourses and Periods of Revelation

This Surah comprises three discourses:-

The first discourse (vv. 1-37), was revealed in Zil-Qa'adah A.H. 9 or thereabout. As the importance of the subject of the discourse required its declaration on the occasion of Haj the Holy Prophet dispatched Hadrat Ali to follow Hadrat Abu Bakr, who had already left for Makkah as leader of the Pilgrims to the Ka'abah. He instructed Hadrat Ali to deliver the discourse before the representatives of the different clans of Arabia so as to inform them of the new policy towards the mushriks.

The second discourse (vv., 38-72) was sent down in Rajab A.H. 9 or a little before this, when the Holy Prophet was engaged in making preparations for the Campaign, of Tabuk. In this discourse, the Believers were urged to take active part in Jihad, and the shirkers were severely rebuked for holding back their wealth and for hesitation to sacrifice their lives in the way of Allah because of their hypocrisy, weak faith or negligence.

The third discourse (vv. 73-129) was revealed on his return from the Campaign of Tabuk. There are some pieces in this discourse that were sent down on different occasions during the same period and were afterwards consolidated by the Holy Prophet into the Surah in accordance with inspiration from Allah. But this caused no interruption in its continuity because they dealt with the same subject and formed part of the same series of events. This discourse warns the hypocrites of their evil deeds and rebukes those Believers who had stayed behind in the Campaign of Tabuk. Then after taking them to task, Allah pardons those true Believers who had not taken part in the Jihad in the Way of Allah for one reason or the other.

Chronologically, the first discourse should have come last; but being the most important of the three in regard to its subject matter, it was placed first in the order of compilation.

9. Surah At Taubah (The Repentance) - Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi - Tafhim al-Qur'an - The Meaning of the Qur'an

To study the Qur'an it is generally good to first understand what it is.

First: It is a message. A Message that has been given to every Prophet(PBUT) that message being

"There is only one God(swt), He has no equals, partners or progeny. Only He is to be Worshiped and prayed to."

Second: It is a statement of what Islam is and reasons why we should perform Islam. Basically Islam is the Action of Submitting to Allaah(swt) to do so enables us to live in peace with each other and follow the path that leads to Heaven.

Third: What it is not.

It is not an instruction manual on how to perform Islam. It is not a listing of commands. It is a guide. __________________

OK
You say that the states of the fighting and Jihad revealed in the time of Muhammad
Is Ante effect and the effect of these verses
Each verse was revealed are valid at that time also
For utter the idolaters
The term is generic and includes all human beings who do not believe in Muhammad and his message
And the infidels in word It also includes people who do not believe in Islam
For this reason, when the Koran declares jihad
It is announced at that time and also in our time now and in the future
This comes from the Koran when he says he is good at all times
So the concept of jihad is one of the concepts and fundamentals of the Koran
Will be able to cancel this law
Muslim scholars adult ancient contemporaries say the rest of the jihad and continuously to the Day of Resurrection
That's why I tell you
Either you do not understand Islam well
Or you are trying to mislead people lying on them
This is called pious Muslim
Refer Read the Koran and well
Because we offer and are offering verses of the Koran as they are without frills and without interpretation and without misleading

Here, try a full brainwashed
Jihad is obligatory of the ordinances of Islam
And Almaak and interpreting the Koran believe them
Do you want to cancel this Ahlgredh
I think you're trying to block out the sun with a sieve Old

Stages of jihad legislation:
First: what the Prophet, peace be upon him to call God appeared to him in Mecca enemies Aadoh and hurting him, and God was guiding him with patience and forgiveness, and calling for jihad, the Koran, and argument.
Second: When intensified harm the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him and his companions, God bless them, God authorized him to emigrate from Mecca to Medina, and ordered his companions to immigrate, after thirteen years of the mission.
Third: Then God authorized the Prophet peace be upon him and the faithful to fight in the city after the migration, while clenching their enemies, and wronged believers assaulting them, and get them out of their homes unjustly.
God and authorized them to fight in self-defense, and insurance of religion, and a boost to injustice and aggression.
Fourth: Then God commanded His Messenger? And all the faithful to fight the infidels; for God is all religion, but open doors for each of the desires of Islam.
1. Allah says: {And fight the polytheists all as fight against you all and know that Allah is with those [36]} [Repentance: 36].
2. Ibn Umar that the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him said: «ordered to fight the people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and establish prayer, and pay zakat, and if they did Asmoa me blood and money only to the right of Islam and the self-employed on God. » agreed

Please be aware
This is the word of Muhammad
And every Muslim in the world believe in this speech
But with the following difference
If you have the power, O you Muslims fighting
And if you do not have the strength and patience you Shuffle
This is what is happening in Europe and every country enters Islam
Initially Shuffle
After proving their feet
Show the teeth and Abdaan claim in the law of God
That they want to rule the world by
The Islamic Sharia is the law of ignorance and backwardness

Is this verse ended its impact
And that the Muslim should not be applied in his life and considers historical verses which are not valid in our time

Send this question to the Muslim
The imposition of God Almighty fighting in the way of Allah in the second year of migration.
And jihad for Allah obligation, if he has done enough sin fell from the rest, provided that when the Muslims' strength and ability can by fighting.
قال الله تعالى: {كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الْقِتَالُ وَهُوَ كُرْهٌ لَكُمْ وَعَسَى أَنْ تَكْرَهُوا شَيْئًا وَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَكُمْ وَعَسَى أَنْ تُحِبُّوا شَيْئًا وَهُوَ شَرٌّ لَكُمْ وَاللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ وَأَنْتُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ [216]} [البقرة: 216].{كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الْقِتَالُ =ordered to fight the people

Your claim is false and is a result of you being brainwashed by the politicians and the media.

In order to understand "jihad" as well as "jahad", one must understand the circumstances when these verses were revealed and what is meant by both "jihad" and "jahad". Both are related, one is noun and the other verb. None of them are meant to be attacking infidels like driving trucks into peaceful infidels.
Fortunately I have a database to note that actually your presentation is inaccurate.

The article above is about "jihad" in the context of warfare.
The 9:33 is merely a side point to support one of the fundamental basis of jihad, i.e. world domination as propounded in the Quran [there are verses to support this].

Quote:
There are 4 verses with the word "jihad" in the Qur'aan.
Taking into account of the whole Quran you are wrong on this and is misleading.

The root of 'jihad' is JHD with its various sets of words with different meanings.
Within JHD there is a set of words belong to struggle, strive, endeavor, and the likes within an aggressive warfare ethos.

This JHD words related to the warfare ethos are of the Verb Type III. There are many type of verbs.

These words are;
Jahada - verb type III -perfect
Yujahidu - verb type III - imperfect
Jahid - verb type III - imperative
Jihad - verb type III - verbal noun
Mujahid -- verb type III -active participle
When the word "jihad" is used in relation to the evils and violence committed by SOME evil prone Muslims, it a general term that encompass the above set of Verb Type III. The general public would not engage in such detail linguistics matters.

You are wrong to state that 'jihad' is merely a noun. It is a verbal noun.
Verbal noun = a noun formed by inflection of a verb and partly sharing its constructions, such as smoking in "smoking is forbidden."
Of the four verses for 'jihad' (verb type III - verbal noun), the 'jihad' in 22:78 relate to general striving. The jihad in 9:24 refer to striving within an aggressive war ethos.
The 'jihad' in 25:52 and 60:1 has a greater degree of aggression against non-believers.
In addition your translation of 25:52 and 60:1 is inaccurate and insufficient, i.e.
25:52. So obey not the disbelievers [infidels], but strive [jihad] against them [infidels] herewith with a great endeavour.
Note the implication of 'striving against infidels' as a verbal noun has antagonistic element in that warfare on text.

60:1 is worst, i.e.
60:1. O ye [Muslims] who believe! Choose not My enemy [infidels] and your enemy [infidels] for friends*.
Do ye [Muslims] give them [infidels] friendship [] [tul'qūna ilayhim offering them] [love, bonding, bil-mawadati بِالْمَوَدَّةِ و د د ] when they [infidels] disbelieve in that [revelation Quran] truth which hath come unto you [Muslims], driving out the messenger and you [Muslims] because ye [Muslims] believe in Allah, your Lord?
If ye [Muslims] have come forth to strive [jihad] in My way and seeking My good pleasure, (show them [infidels] not friendship).
Do ye [Muslims] show friendship unto them [infidels] in secret, when I am best Aware of what ye [Muslims] hide and what ye proclaim?
And whosoever [Muslim] doeth it among you, be verily hath strayed from the right way.
In the above context, friends [awliyaa] is not related to allies, guardian, protector as Muslims try to deflect so often.
You have excluded the phrase "tul'qūna ilayhim bil-mawadati بِالْمَوَدَّةِ و د د " as if to hide something for whatever the reason.

In the context of offering them love/bonding "tul'qūna ilayhim bil-mawadati بِالْمَوَدَّةِ و د د " the more likely context is in term and context of general friendship and not re allies, protector, guardian, and the likes.

In 60:1 a Muslim cannot even express "friendship" in terms of "bil-mawadati بِالْمَوَدَّةِ و د د" to non-Muslims because Allah is omniscience, i.e. all-knowing and know what is in the mind of all beings. According to 60:1 a Muslim would have strayed from the right way if he/she befriends non-Muslims, thus go to Hell.

Can you prove me wrong on my interpretation of 60:1?


Here are the rest of the verses [Pickthall] with 'jihad' in its various Verb Type III groups. I don't have time to explain but one will note these verses are all used within a warfare ethos to inspire SOME evil prone Muslims against infidels;

Jahada - verb type III -perfect
2:218. Lo! Those [Muslims] who believe, and those [Muslims] who emigrate (to escape the persecution) and strive [Jahada*] in the way of Allah, these [Muslims] have hope of Allah's mercy. Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

8:72. Lo! those [Muslims] who believed and left their homes [emigrated to Medina] and strove [jahada] with their wealth and their lives for the cause of Allah, and ….

9:88. But the messenger and those [Muslims] who believe with him strive [jahada] with their wealth and their lives [wa-anfusihim]. Such are they [Muslims] for whom are the good things. Such are they [Muslims] who are the successful. [in this world and on the day of judgment] [True Muslims]

16:110. Then lo! thy Lord for those [Muslims] who become fugitives [from Mecca] after they had been persecuted, and then fought [jāhadū; jihad] and were steadfast lo! thy Lord afterward is (for them) indeed Forgiving, Merciful

Verb Type III imperfect
5:54. ..., stern toward disbelievers [infidels], striving [yujahidu*] in the way of Allah and fearing not the blame of any blamer. [*verb III imperfect]

Verb Type III imperative
6:9. O Prophet! Strive [jāhidi] against the disbelievers [infidels] and the hypocrites, and be stern with them [infidels] . Hell will be their [infidels] home, a hapless journey's end.
Jihad - verb type III - verbal noun
25:52. So obey not the disbelievers [infidels], but strive [jihad] against them [infidels] herewith with a great endeavour.

60:1. O ye [Muslims] who believe! Choose not My enemy [infidels] and your enemy [infidels] for friends*.
Do ye [Muslims] give them [infidels] friendship [] [tul'qūna ilayhim offering them] [love, bonding, bil-mawadati بِالْمَوَدَّةِ و د د ] when they [infidels] disbelieve in that [revelation Quran] truth which hath come unto you [Muslims], driving out the messenger and you [Muslims] because ye [Muslims] believe in Allah, your Lord?
If ye [Muslims] have come forth to strive [jihad] in My way and seeking My good pleasure, (show them [infidels] not friendship).
Do ye [Muslims] show friendship unto them [infidels] in secret, when I am best Aware of what ye [Muslims] hide and what ye proclaim?
And whosoever [Muslim] doeth it among you, be verily hath strayed from the right way
.

Mujahid -- verb type III -active participle
4:95. Those [Muslims] of the believers who sit still, other than those [Muslims] who have a (disabling) hurt, are not on an equality with those who strive [l-mujāhidīna: Muslims] in the way of Allah with their wealth and lives [wa-anfusihim].
Allah hath conferred on those [Muslims] who strive with their wealth and lives a rank above the sedentary. Unto each Allah hath promised good, but He hath bestowed on those who strive [l-mujāhidīna: Muslims fighters] a great reward above the sedentary; [inspire, trigger Jihadists to fight]

31. And verily We shall try you [Muslims] till We know those [l-mujāhidīna: Muslims] of you who strive [jahada] hard (for the cause of Allah) and the steadfast, and till We test your [Muslim's] record.
From the above verses one will note they do inspire the evil prone to take to the sword based on various justifications in the Quran.
The justifications for 'jihad' are very vague and the sensitivity in the vague interpretations compel the very zealous to please Allah [to avoid Hell,] by complying with the gist of the above and many other evil laden verses.

The most critical issue is NO ONE ON EARTH can judge whether their very marginal interpretations are right or wrong, thus no one has any authority to stop and prevent them from committing evils and violence on non-Muslims and even Muslims who are deemed astray by them.

Every reference of physical war in the Qur'an has been in regards to specific battles. These specific battles are covered quite well in Surat 5 and 9

To understand the hows and why's of the Qur'an one has to study the times and erra each Discourse was revealed.

One can not just pick up a Qur'an and use it like a cook-book with recipes on how to make a Muslim
.

The Qur'an is "Why to perform Islam" not the how to perform Islam. It is only part of the how.

Getting back the specific Battles mentioned in 5 and 9 are:

5. Name
This Sarah takes its' name from verse 112 in which the word mai'dah occurs. Like the names of many other surahs, this name has no special relation to the subject of the Surah but has been used merely as a symbol to distinguish it from other surahs.

Period of Revelation

The theme of this Surah indicates, and traditions support it, that it was revealed after the treaty of Hudaibiyah at the end of 6 A. H. or in the beginning of 7 A. H. That is why it deals with those problems that arose from this treaty.

5. Surah Al Maidah (The Table Spread) - Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi - Tafhim al-Qur'an - The Meaning of the Qur'an



9. Discourses and Periods of Revelation

This Surah comprises three discourses:-

The first discourse (vv. 1-37), was revealed in Zil-Qa'adah A.H. 9 or thereabout. As the importance of the subject of the discourse required its declaration on the occasion of Haj the Holy Prophet dispatched Hadrat Ali to follow Hadrat Abu Bakr, who had already left for Makkah as leader of the Pilgrims to the Ka'abah. He instructed Hadrat Ali to deliver the discourse before the representatives of the different clans of Arabia so as to inform them of the new policy towards the mushriks.

The second discourse (vv., 38-72) was sent down in Rajab A.H. 9 or a little before this, when the Holy Prophet was engaged in making preparations for the Campaign, of Tabuk. In this discourse, the Believers were urged to take active part in Jihad, and the shirkers were severely rebuked for holding back their wealth and for hesitation to sacrifice their lives in the way of Allah because of their hypocrisy, weak faith or negligence.

The third discourse (vv. 73-129) was revealed on his return from the Campaign of Tabuk. There are some pieces in this discourse that were sent down on different occasions during the same period and were afterwards consolidated by the Holy Prophet into the Surah in accordance with inspiration from Allah. But this caused no interruption in its continuity because they dealt with the same subject and formed part of the same series of events. This discourse warns the hypocrites of their evil deeds and rebukes those Believers who had stayed behind in the Campaign of Tabuk. Then after taking them to task, Allah pardons those true Believers who had not taken part in the Jihad in the Way of Allah for one reason or the other.

Chronologically, the first discourse should have come last; but being the most important of the three in regard to its subject matter, it was placed first in the order of compilation.

9. Surah At Taubah (The Repentance) - Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi - Tafhim al-Qur'an - The Meaning of the Qur'an

To study the Qur'an it is generally good to first understand what it is.

First: It is a message. A Message that has been given to every Prophet(PBUT) that message being

"There is only one God(swt), He has no equals, partners or progeny. Only He is to be Worshiped and prayed to."

Second: It is a statement of what Islam is and reasons why we should perform Islam. Basically Islam is the Action of Submitting to Allaah(swt) to do so enables us to live in peace with each other and follow the path that leads to Heaven.

Third: What it is not.

It is not an instruction manual on how to perform Islam. It is not a listing of commands. It is a guide.
Yet all the wars fought by Muhammad were offensive in nature. They were the attackers. So the point about only killing the infidel during war is irrelevant.
