Greater Jihad Is Building Better Societies
deceivers liars Prophet Muhammad never declared
jihad as holy war jihad is not Muslim killing Muslim
Prophet Muhammad said a religious duty of Muslims
was Jihad a 'struggle' against denying Allah atheists;
brother Muslims Sunni and Shi'a both worship Allah
Muhammad encouraged Jihad against non-believers
neither Sunni nor Shi'a renounced their belief in Islam
neither committed apostasy or sinned against Allah;
Jihad means 'to struggle in the way of Allah'
'lesser jihad' is the physical struggle against
enemies of Islam it can honour be non-violent...
'greater jihad' is an inner struggle by a believer
to fulfill his religious duties the struggle to build
a good society based upon faith righteous justice...
