With pleasure Puck!<br />
<br />
Of course because the Arabic language is considered as a sea and alive rich language, it includes 500 million words as the Researcher Adnan Eidaan said (if it's not more)… From one infinitive you could form many words that have different meanings and uses. And remember the example of the meanings of day in Arabic which I posted in Faith and Science group before…. <br />
The trouble that Islam has been facing is the mistranslation and misconception of the Quranic verses and Hadiths and that has led to hide the fact of Islam…….<br />
<br />
In fact, there was someone here who was trying to convince me to Christianity….. I didn't say no, but I said answer my questions with a documented source as I always do with the arguer and this is my right because I like to be respected as a thinker. But, he unfortunately failed and just used his own words and thoughts and that never works with Amira as Amira………. And anyone meets me must note that I'm a stubborn and don't accept things easily…. I always say I didn't accept Islam because I was born Muslim, I accepted it because it made sense to me. I'm also a believer in The Messiah and his follower, so why should I take one step back? If I didn't believe in him I would be a disbeliever and if I disbelieved in Mohammad peace be upon him I would be also a disbeliever. And I swear by Allah if Christianity is superior to Islam, I will convert right away, but who could answer my questions with a documented source? <br />
<br />
Now, would you like to carry on or stop?

To understand the meaning of Jihad in depth, we have to return it to its origin first. The word Jihad is derived from the verb J-H-D (inventive)……. Linguistically, it means striving or making efforts. <br />
For instance: Puck (يجتهد) "ya (J) -ta- (H) I (D)" to understand Islam. In English: Puck is (striving) to understand Islam. So, you are doing Jihad according to the original meaning of Jihad. <br />
<br />
*<br />
<br />
Now, if we apply the word Jihad to Islam as a religion, we will realize that its actual meaning in The Noble Quran and Correct Hadiths is broader and more comprehensive. It doesn't mean only fighting as some people unfortunately think. We could define it as a constant struggle to preserve one's faith and defend the rights to freedom of worship. <br />
<br />
For instance: From Surat Luqman (31), verses no. 14 & 15. <br />
<br />
[14] wa waS-Saynal insaana bi waalidayhi Hamalat'hu um-muhuu wahnan 'Alaa wahniw wa fiSaaluhuu fiy 'AAmayni anishkur liy wa li waalidayka ilay-yal maSiyr [15] Wa 'In Jāhadāka `Alá 'An Tushrika Bī Mā Laysa Laka Bihi `Ilmun Falā Tuţi`humā ۖ Wa Şāĥibhumā Fī Ad-Dunyā Ma`rūfāan ۖ Wa Attabi` Sabīla Man 'Anāba 'Ilayya ۚ Thumma 'Ilayya Marji`ukum Fa'unabbi'ukum Bimā Kuntum Ta`malūna<br />
<br />
وَوَصَّيْنَا الإِنسَانَ بِوَالِدَيْهِ حَمَلَتْهُ أُمُّهُ وَهْنًا عَلَى وَهْنٍ وَفِصَالُهُ فِي عَامَيْنِ أَنِ اشْكُرْ لِي وَلِوَالِدَيْكَ إِلَيَّ الْمَصِيرُ (14) وَإِن جَاهَدَاكَ عَلَى أَن تُشْرِكَ بِي مَا لَيْسَ لَكَ بِهِ عِلْمٌ فَلا تُطِعْهُمَا وَصَاحِبْهُمَا فِي الدُّنْيَا مَعْرُوفًا وَاتَّبِعْ سَبِيلَ مَنْ أَنَابَ إِلَيَّ ثُمَّ إِلَيَّ مَرْجِعُكُمْ فَأُنَبِّئُكُم بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ (15) <br />
<br />
The translation into English is: [Luqman – 31:14] And We have enjoined on man (to be good) to his parents: in travail upon travail did his mother bear him, and in years twain was his weaning: (hear the command), "Show gratitude to Me and to thy parents: to Me is (thy final) Goal. [Luqman – 3:15] "But if they strive to make thee join in worship with Me things of which thou hast no knowledge, obey them not; yet bear them company in this life with justice (and consideration), and follow the way of those who turn to me (in love): in the end the return of you all is to Me, and I will tell you the truth (and meaning) of all that ye did."<br />
<br />
The third word from the left in the Qur'anic verse is (Jāhadāka), while it's the second from the right in the Arabic text (جَاهَدَاكَ). But, does it mean fighting? Let's first study the verses carefully!<br />
<br />
Allah first enjoined the human being to honor his parents and note that He didn't say Muslims, He just said (man), so the commandment is to ALL human beings regardless of their religions. <br />
<br />
And in Hadith: Narrated 'Abdullah: I asked the Prophet "Which deed is the dearest to God?" He replied, "To offer the prayers at their early stated fixed times." I asked, "What is the next (in goodness)?" He replied, "To be good and dutiful to your parents" (Bukhari) <br />
<br />
Then, in the next verse He said (but if they strive or force you to worship for instance idols or any fake god beside Me, then do not obey your parents, and continue to treat them amicably and only follow the path of those who submitted to Me). <br />
<br />
Note that Allah preserved the rights of all parents including pagan, although they disbelieved in His Oneness, because God already enjoined man to honor his parents in verse no. 14 and other verses as well, and this is one of His kindnesses and a proof that Allah doesn't change His words. But that doesn’t mean they would be in Heaven, their place is Hell, if they didn't repent as <br />
He mentioned in Quran. [Al Ma'edah – 5:72] Anyone who sets up any idol beside GOD, GOD has forbidden Paradise for him, and his destiny is Hell. The wicked have no helpers.<br />
<br />
And in Hadith: Ali (radhi Allaahu 'anhu) reports that the Messenger (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said: There is no obedience to anyone in disobedience to Allah, verily obedience is in that which is correct. Collected by al-Bukhari, Muslim and an-Nasaa'ee 'as- Saheehah of al-Albaanee no.181 <br />
<br />
So, there was Jihad as the verse mentioned and the answer is NO, fighting as Jihad in your eyes doesn't fit this verse, as the verse is talking about the relationship of God with us only with no one in between. In other words, the verse discussed the problem and gave the solution and Jihad has different meanings ba<x>sed on the given text. <br />
<br />
And to be more certain, you may copy the word (جَاهَدَ) or (جَاهَدَاك) and paste it in Google translation page and see what would you get? Would it be fighting or something else? <br />
<br />
*<br />
<br />
It's also well known that the Islamic call was for 23 years. It started in Makkah and lasted 13 years, while the remaining years were in Al-Madinah (Yathrib – Yaθrib). <br />
<br />
In the beginning of Islam, Allah instructed Prophet Mohammad peace be upon him to (start) Jihad against his folks who were worshiping idols beside Allah once he got the revelation. <br />
<br />
The first Jihad started in Makkah as I said earlier, but it was with The Noble Quran ONLY (to report the divine message), and the order for fighting was NOT yet issued, as circumstances at the time couldn't help for many reasons that would be clarified later. Allah said in Quran what means in English: <br />
<br />
[Al Furqan - 25:51] And had We willed, We would have raised a warner in every town. [Al Furqan - 25: 52] So obey not the disbelievers, but strive against them with the utmost endeavor with it.<br />
Interpreter of Quran Sheikh Ibn Katheer said in his interpretation of these verses: Allah says:<br />
<br />
﴿وَلَوْ شِئْنَا لَبَعَثْنَا فِى كُلِّ قَرْيَةٍ نَّذِيراً ﴾<br />
<br />
(And had We willed, We would have raised a warner in every town.) `Calling them to Allah, but We have singled you out, O Muhammad, to be sent to all the people of earth, and We have commanded you to convey the Qur'an,'<br />
<br />
﴿لاٌّنذِرَكُمْ بِهِ وَمَن بَلَغَ﴾<br />
<br />
(that I may therewith warn you and whomsoever it may reach) (6:19).<br />
<br />
﴿وَمَن يَكْفُرْ بِهِ مِنَ الاٌّحْزَابِ فَالنَّارُ مَوْعِدُهُ﴾<br />
<br />
(but those of the sects that reject it, the Fire will be their promised meeting place) (11:17).<br />
﴿لِّتُنذِرَ أُمَّ الْقُرَى وَمَنْ حَوْلَهَا﴾<br />
<br />
(that you may warn the Mother of the Towns and all around it) (42:7).<br />
<br />
﴿قُلْ يَأَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنِّى رَسُولُ اللَّهِ إِلَيْكُمْ جَمِيعًا﴾<br />
<br />
(Say: "O mankind! Verily, I am sent to you all as the Messenger of Allah...'') (7:158). In the Two Sahihs (it is reported that the Prophet said)<br />
<br />
«بُعِثْتُ إِلَى الْأَحْمَرِ وَالْأَسْوَد»<br />
<br />
(I have been sent to the red and the black) And:<br />
<br />
«وَكَانَ النَّبِيُّ يُبْعَثُ إِلَى قَوْمِهِ خَاصَّةً، وَبُعِثْتُ إِلَى النَّاسِ عَامَّة»<br />
<br />
(...A Prophet would be sent to his own people, but I have been sent to all of mankind.) Allah says:<br />
﴿فَلاَ تُطِعِ الْكَـفِرِينَ وَجَـهِدْهُمْ بِهِ﴾<br />
<br />
(So obey not the disbelievers, but strive hard against them with it.) meaning, with the Qur'an. This was the view of Ibn `Abbas.<br />
<br />
﴿جِهَاداً كَبيراً﴾<br />
<br />
(with the utmost endeavour.) This is like the Ayah,<br />
<br />
﴿يَأَيُّهَا النَّبِىُّ جَـهِدِ الْكُفَّـرَ وَالْمُنَـفِقِينَ﴾<br />
<br />
(O Prophet! Strive hard against the disbelievers and the hypocrites,) (9:73)<br />
<br />
(Interpretation is done)<br />
<br />
So, the Jihad started in Makkah by one man and was ONLY with The Noble Quran NOT fighting as it's mentioned in the mistranslated quote you gave (quote no. 18). <br />
<br />
Another verse that proves that Jihad was not legislated yet and there was NO fight in Makkah is also part of the quotes you gave (no. 4): <br />
<br />
[An'nissa - 4:77] Have you not seen those who were told to hold back their hands (from fighting) and perform Salah and give Zakah, but when the fighting was ordained for them, behold! a section of them fear men as they fear Allah or even more. They say: "Our Lord! Why have You ordained for us fighting Would that You granted us respite for a short period'' Say: "Short is the enjoyment of this world. The Hereafter is (far) better for him who fears Allah, and you shall not be dealt with unjustly even equal to the Fatil) <br />
<br />
Interpreter of Quran Sheikh Ibn Katheer said in his interpretation of this verse: <br />
<br />
In the beginning of Islam, Muslims in Makkah were commanded to perform the prayer and pay some charity, so as to comfort the poor among them. They were also commanded to be forgiving and forbearing with the idolaters and to observe patience with them at the time. However, they were eager and anticipating the time when they would be allowed to fight, so that they could punish their enemies. The situation at that time did not permit armed conflict for many reasons. For instance, Muslims were few at the time, compared to their numerous enemies. The Muslims' city was a sacred one and the most honored area on the earth, and this is why the command to fight was not revealed in Makkah. Later on when the Muslims controlled a town of their own, Al-Madinah, and had strength, power and support, Jihad was then legislated. Yet, when the command to fight was revealed, just as Muslims wished, some of them became weary and were very fearful of facing the idolaters in battle.<br />
<br />
He also mentioned this Hadith: I was commanded to pardon the people, so do not fight them. <br />
<br />
(Interpretation is done)<br />
<br />
Then, the first verse of Jihad (Qital/Fighting) was legislated when Prophet Mohammad peace be upon him was in Al-Madinah and the reasons are mentioned in the verses as well. Allah said in Quran what means in English: <br />
<br />
[Al Hajj – 22:39] Permission (to fight) is given to those (believers) who are fought against, because they have been wronged; and surely, Allah is able to give them victory. [Al Hajj – 22:40] Those who have been expelled from their homes unjustly only because they said: "Our Lord is Allah.'' For had it not been that Allah checks one set of people by means of another, Sawami`, Biya`, Salawat, and Masjids, wherein the Name of Allah is mentioned much, would surely have been pulled down. Verily, Allah will help those who help His (cause). Truly, Allah is All-Strong, All-Mighty.<br />
<br />
Interpreter of Quran Sheikh Ibn Katheer said in his interpretation of this verse: <br />
<br />
Al-`Awfi reported that Ibn `Abbas said, "This was revealed about Muhammad and his Companions, when they were expelled from Makkah.'' Mujahid, Ad-Dahhak and others among the Salaf, such as Ibn `Abbas, `Urwah bin Az-Zubayr, Zayd bin Aslam, Muqatil bin Hayan, Qatadah and others said, "This is the first Ayah which was revealed about Jihad.'' Ibn Jarir recorded that Ibn `Abbas said, "When the Prophet was driven out of Makkah, Abu Bakr said, `They have their Prophet. Truly, to Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return; surely they are doomed.''' Ibn `Abbas said, "Then Allah revealed the words:<br />
<br />
﴿أُذِنَ لِلَّذِينَ يُقَـتَلُونَ بِأَنَّهُمْ ظُلِمُواْ وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَى نَصْرِهِمْ لَقَدِيرٌ ﴾<br />
<br />
(Permission (to fight) is given to those (believers) fought against, because they have been wronged; and surely, Allah is able to give them victory.)'' Abu Bakr, may Allah be pleased with him, said, "Then I knew that there would be fighting.'' Imam Ahmad added: "Ibn `Abbas said, `This was the first Ayah to be revealed concerning fighting.''' This was also recorded by At-Tirmidhi and An-Nasa'i in the Book of Tafsir of their Sunans. At-Tirmidhi said: "It is a Hasan Hadith.''<br />
<br />
﴿وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَى نَصْرِهِمْ لَقَدِيرٌ﴾<br />
<br />
(and surely, Allah is able to give them victory.) means, He is able to grant victory to His believing servants without any fighting taking place, but He wants His servants to strive their utmost in obeying Him, as He says:<br />
<br />
﴿فَإِذَا لَقِيتُمُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ فَضَرْبَ الرِّقَابِ حَتَّى إِذَآ أَثْخَنتُمُوهُمْ فَشُدُّواْ الْوَثَاقَ فَإِمَّا مَنًّا بَعْدُ وَإِمَّا فِدَآءً حَتَّى تَضَعَ الْحَرْبُ أَوْزَارَهَا ذَلِكَ وَلَوْ يَشَآءُ اللَّهُ لاَنْتَصَرَ مِنْهُمْ وَلَـكِن لِّيَبْلُوَ بَعْضَكُمْ بِبَعْضٍ وَالَّذِينَ قُتِلُواْ فِى سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ فَلَن يُضِلَّ أَعْمَـلَهُمْ - سَيَهْدِيهِمْ وَيُصْلِحُ بَالَهُمْ - وَيُدْخِلُهُمُ الْجَنَّةَ عَرَّفَهَا لَهُمْ ﴾<br />
<br />
(So, when you meet those who disbelieve, strike necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly. Thereafter either for generosity, or ransom, until war lays down its burden. Thus, but if it had been Allah's will, He Himself could certainly have punished them. But (He lets you fight) in order to test some of you with others. But those who are killed in the way of Allah, He will never let their deeds be lost. He will guide them and set right their state. And admit them to Paradise which He has made known to them.) ﴿47:4-6﴾<br />
<br />
﴿قَـتِلُوهُمْ يُعَذِّبْهُمُ اللَّهُ بِأَيْدِيكُمْ وَيُخْزِهِمْ وَيَنْصُرْكُمْ عَلَيْهِمْ وَيَشْفِ صُدُورَ قَوْمٍ مُّؤْمِنِينَ - وَيُذْهِبْ غَيْظَ قُلُوبِهِمْ وَيَتُوبُ اللَّهُ عَلَى مَن يَشَآءُ وَاللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ ﴾<br />
<br />
(Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands, and disgrace them, and give you <br />
victory over them, and heal the breasts of a believing people, and remove the anger of their (believers') hearts. Allah accepts the repentance of whom He wills. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.) <br />
﴿9:14-15﴾<br />
<br />
﴿وَلَنَبْلُوَنَّكُمْ حَتَّى نَعْلَمَ الْمُجَـهِدِينَ مِنكُمْ وَالصَّـبِرِينَ وَنَبْلُوَ أَخْبَـرَكُمْ ﴾<br />
<br />
(And surely, We shall try you till We test those who strive hard and the patient, and We shall test your facts.) ﴿47:31﴾. And there are many similar Ayat. Ibn `Abbas commented on the Ayah,<br />
<br />
﴿وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَى نَصْرِهِمْ لَقَدِيرٌ﴾<br />
<br />
(and surely, Allah is able to give them (believers) victory.) "And this is what He did.'' Allah prescribed Jihad at an appropriate time, because when they were in Makkah, the idolaters outnumbered them by more than ten to one. Were they to engage in fighting at that time, the results would have been disastrous. When the idolaters went to extremes to persecute Muslims, to expel the Prophet and resolving to kill him; when they sent his Companions into exile here and there, so that some went to Ethiopia and others went to Al-Madinah; when they settled in Al-Madinah and the Messenger of Allah joined them there, and they gathered around him and lent him their support, and they had a place where Islam prevailed, and a stronghold to which they could retreat; then Allah prescribed Jihad against the enemy, and this was the first Ayah to be revealed for it. Allah said:<br />
<br />
﴿أُذِنَ لِلَّذِينَ يُقَـتَلُونَ بِأَنَّهُمْ ظُلِمُواْ وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَى نَصْرِهِمْ لَقَدِيرٌ الَّذِينَ أُخْرِجُواْ مِن دِيَـرِهِم بِغَيْرِ حَقٍّ﴾<br />
<br />
(Permission (to fight) is given to those fought against, because they have been wronged; and surely, Allah is able to give them victory. Those who have been expelled from their homes unjustly) Al-`Awfi reported that Ibn `Abbas said; "They were driven out of Makkah to Al-Madinah unjustly, i.e., Muhammad and his Companions.''<br />
<br />
﴿إِلاَّ أَن يَقُولُواْ رَبُّنَا اللَّهُ﴾<br />
<br />
(only because they said: "Our Lord is Allah.'') means, they had not done anything to their people or committed any wrongs against them, apart from the fact that they believed in the Oneness of Allah and they worshipped Him Alone, with no partner or associate. But for the idolators, this was the worst of sins, as Allah says:<br />
<br />
﴿يُخْرِجُونَ الرَّسُولَ وَإِيَّـكُمْ أَن تُؤْمِنُواْ بِاللَّهِ رَبِّكُمْ﴾<br />
<br />
(and have driven out the Messenger and yourselves because you believe in Allah, your Lord!) ﴿60:1﴾. Then Allah says:<br />
<br />
﴿وَلَوْلاَ دَفْعُ اللَّهِ النَّاسَ بَعْضَهُم بِبَعْضٍ﴾<br />
<br />
(For had it not been that Allah checks one set of people by means of another,) meaning, were it not for the fact that He repels one people by means of another, and restrains the evil of people towards others by means of whatever circumstances He creates and decrees, the earth would have been corrupted and the strong would have destroyed the weak.<br />
<br />
﴿لَّهُدِّمَتْ صَوَمِعُ﴾<br />
<br />
(Sawami` surely have been pulled down) means the small temples used by monks. This was the view of Ibn `Abbas, Mujahid, Abu Al-`Aliyah, `Ikrimah, Ad-Dahhak and others. Qatadah said, "This refers to the places of worship of the Sabians;'' according to another report, he said, "The Sawami` of the Zoroastrians.'' Muqatil bin Hayyan said, "These are houses along the roads.''<br />
<br />
﴿وَبِيَعٌ﴾<br />
<br />
(Biya`.) These are larger than the Sawami` and accommodate more worshippers; the Christians also have these. This was the view of Abu Al-`Aliyah, Qatadah, Ad-Dahhak, Ibn Sakhr, Muqatil bin Hayyan, Khusayf and others. Ibn Jubayr reported from Mujahid and others that this referred to the synagogues of the Jews which are known to them as Salut. And Allah knows best.<br />
<br />
﴿وَصَلَوَتِ﴾<br />
<br />
(Salawat) Al-`Awfi reported that Ibn `Abbas said, "Salawat means churches.'' `Ikrimah, Ad-Dahhak and Qatadah said that it referred to the synagogues of the Jews. Abu Al-`Aliyah and others said, "Salawat refers to the places of worship of the Sabians.'' Ibn Abi Najih reported that Mujahid said, "Salawat refers to places of worship of the People of the Book and of the people of Islam along the roads.'' Masjids belong to the Muslims.<br />
<br />
﴿يُذْكَرُ فِيهَا اسمُ اللَّهِ كَثِيراً﴾<br />
<br />
(wherein the Name of Allah is mentioned much,) It was said that the pronoun refers to Masjids, because this is the closest of the words mentioned. Ad-Dahhak said, "In all of them the Name of Allah is often mentioned.'' Ibn Jarir said, "The correct view is that the monasteries of the monks, the churches of the Christians, the synagogues of the Jews and the Masjids of the Muslims, in which the Name of Allah is mentioned much, would have been destroyed -- because this is the usual usage in Arabic.'' Some of the scholars said, "This is a sequence listing the smallest to the greatest, because the Masjids are more frequented by more worshippers who have the correct intention and way.''<br />
<br />
﴿وَلَيَنصُرَنَّ اللَّهُ مَن يَنصُرُهُ﴾<br />
<br />
(Verily, Allah will help those who help His (cause).) This is like the Ayah:<br />
<br />
﴿يأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ إِن تَنصُرُواْ اللَّهَ يَنصُرْكُمْ وَيُثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَكُمْ - وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ فَتَعْساً لَّهُمْ وَأَضَلَّ أَعْمَـلَهُمْ ﴾<br />
<br />
(O you who believe! If you help (in the cause of) Allah, He will help you, and make your foothold firm. But those who disbelieve, for them is destruction, and (Allah) will make their deeds vain.) ﴿47:7-8﴾<br />
<br />
﴿إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَقَوِىٌّ عَزِيزٌ﴾<br />
<br />
(Truly, Allah is All-Strong, All-Mighty.) Allah describes Himself as being All-Strong and All-Mighty. <br />
<br />
By His strength He created everything and measured it exactly according to its due measurements; by His might nothing can overpower Him or overwhelm Him, rather everything is humbled before Him and is in need of Him. Whoever is supported by the All-Strong, the All-Mighty, is indeed supported and helped, and his enemy will be overpowered. Allah says:<br />
<br />
﴿وَلَقَدْ سَبَقَتْ كَلِمَتُنَا لِعِبَادِنَا الْمُرْسَلِينَ - إِنَّهُمْ لَهُمُ الْمَنصُورُونَ - وَإِنَّ جُندَنَا لَهُمُ الْغَـلِبُونَ ﴾<br />
<br />
(And, verily, Our Word has gone forth of old for Our servants, the Messengers, that they verily, would be made triumphant, and that Our soldiers! They verily, would be the victors.) ﴿37:171-173﴾<br />
﴿كَتَبَ اللَّهُ لاّغْلِبَنَّ أَنَاْ وَرُسُلِى إِنَّ اللَّهَ قَوِىٌّ عَزِيزٌ ﴾<br />
<br />
(Allah has decreed: "Verily, it is I and My Messengers who shall be the victorious.'' Verily, Allah is All-Powerful, All-Mighty.) ﴿58:21﴾<br />
<br />
(Interpretation is done)<br />
<br />
Another verse proves that Prophet Mohammad peace be upon him did NOT start fight until Allah gave him permission to fight is: <br />
<br />
[Bara'ah - 9: 13] Will you not fight a people who have violated their oaths and intended to expel the Messenger while they did attack you first Do you fear them Allah has more right that you should fear Him if you are believers. [Bara'ah - 9:14] Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands, and disgrace them and give you victory over them, and heal the breasts of a believing people. [Bara'ah – 9:15] And remove the anger of their (believers') hearts. Allah accepts the repentance of whom He wills. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.)<br />
<br />
Interpreter of Quran Sheikh Ibn Katheer said in his interpretation of these verses: <br />
<br />
These Ayat encourage, direct and recommend fighting against the idolaters who break the terms of their covenants, those who tried to expel the Messenger from Makkah. Allah said in other Ayat, <br />
<br />
﴿وَإِذْ يَمْكُرُ بِكَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ لِيُثْبِتُوكَ أَوْ يَقْتُلُوكَ أَوْ يُخْرِجُوكَ وَيَمْكُرُونَ وَيَمْكُرُ اللَّهُ وَاللَّهُ خَيْرُ الْمَـكِرِينَ ﴾ <br />
<br />
(And (remember) when the disbelievers plotted against you to imprison you, or to kill you, or to expell you; they were plotting and Allah too was plotting; and Allah is the best of those who plot.) ﴿8:30﴾, <br />
<br />
﴿يُخْرِجُونَ الرَّسُولَ وَإِيَّـكُمْ أَن تُؤْمِنُواْ بِاللَّهِ رَبِّكُمْ﴾ <br />
<br />
(...and have driven out the Messenger and yourselves (from your homeland) because you believe in Allah your Lord!) ﴿60:1﴾, and, <br />
<br />
﴿وَإِن كَادُواْ لَيَسْتَفِزُّونَكَ مِنَ الاٌّرْضِ لِيُخْرِجُوكَ مِنْهَا﴾ <br />
<br />
(And verily, they were about to frighten you so much as to drive you out from the land.) ﴿17:76﴾ <br />
Allah's statement, <br />
<br />
﴿وَهُم بَدَءُوكُمْ أَوَّلَ مَرَّةٍ﴾ <br />
<br />
(while they did attack you first), refers to the battle of Badr when the idolators marched to protect their caravan. When they knew that their caravan escaped safely, they still went ahead with their intent to fight Muslims out of arrogance, as we mentioned before. It was also said that these Ayat refer to the idolators breaking the peace agreement with Muslims and aiding Bani Bakr, their allies, against Khuza`ah, the ally of the Messenger of Allah . This is why the Messenger of Allah marched to Makkah in the year of the victory, thus conquering it, all thanks and praise is due to Allah. Allah said, <br />
<br />
﴿أَتَخْشَوْنَهُمْ فَاللَّهُ أَحَقُّ أَن تَخْشَوْهُ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤُمِنِينَ﴾ <br />
<br />
(Do you fear them Allah has more right that you should fear Him if you are believers.) Allah says here, `Do not fear idolators, but fear Me instead, for I am worthy of being feared by the servants due to My might and punishment. In My Hand lies the matter; whatever I will occurs, and whatever I do not will does not occur.' Allah next said, while ordering the believers and explaining the wisdom of ordaining Jihad against them, all the while able to destroy their enemies with a command from Him, <br />
<br />
﴿قَـتِلُوهُمْ يُعَذِّبْهُمُ اللَّهُ بِأَيْدِيكُمْ وَيُخْزِهِمْ وَيَنْصُرْكُمْ عَلَيْهِمْ وَيَشْفِ صُدُورَ قَوْمٍ مُّؤْمِنِينَ ﴾ <br />
<br />
(Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands, and disgrace them and give you victory over them, and heal the breasts of a believing people.) This Ayah includes all believers, even though Mujahid, `Ikrimah and As-Suddi said that it refers to Khuza`ah. Concerning the believers, Allah said; <br />
<br />
﴿وَيُذْهِبْ غَيْظَ قُلُوبِهِمْ﴾ <br />
<br />
(and remove the anger of their hearts), then <br />
<br />
﴿وَيَتُوبُ اللَّهُ عَلَى مَن يَشَآءُ﴾ <br />
<br />
(Allah accepts the repentance of whom He wills), from His servants, <br />
<br />
﴿وَاللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ﴾ <br />
<br />
(Allah is All-Knowing), in what benefits His servants, <br />
<br />
﴿حَكِيمٌ﴾ <br />
<br />
(All-Wise), in His actions and statements, whether narrative or legislative. Allah does what He wills, decides what He wills, and He is the Just Who never wrongs any. Not even the weight of an atom of good or evil is ever neglected with Him, but rather, He compensates for it in this life and the Hereafter. <br />

If you have a comment please say it, if not then give me the green light to move on!

Puck, <br />
<br />
I am thinking to divide my response into 3 parts (Quran, Hadiths and Words) due to other obligations. And I had a quick look at them last night and noted things that I prefer to delay them. <br />
<br />
I currently have started with Quran only and noted that verses concerning Jews and Christians are mentioned there and I wonder why such verses are mentioned with the verses of Jihad. I'm not sure if my understanding is right and I would be grateful if you enlighten me. <br />
<br />
Do you mean that Jihad's verses are excuses for Mujahideen (Jihadists) to kill you guys?

I would like to handle Puck's comment if he doesn't mind..........

If you read carefully, you'll see that reason is in there too. Simply rules of engagement, but also there is the underlying threat to convert or die.<br />
Everyone has rules of engagement in battle.

Thoughtsarepenny ; The resons why families kill young gurls for having sex is not because of islam, its a cultural thing, same like shaving and cutting hair, see in indian culture, as a whole. commiting sex before marriage is considered that the girl will have no value. Which means, no man will marry her, since "she's used". so than the father gonna have to pay a lot of money, and will be treated like a *****. And when you mention imams, those are the narrow minded, religious type, which has no knowledge of the world, who has no degree in anything, they become imam by reading sum books, without understanding the qu'ran. To really understand any religion, not just islam, should not be judged by the people, you as a person have to read their books, and understand them, interpret them. Same like the qu'ran, every word has 10 different meanings, which 80% of the imams know nothing about. And what about the al qaeda, and Taliban? they were american spies, fbi's puppets, made to kill every and anyone, do you truly believe they belong to any religion? They kill their own brethren. No religion teaches to kill, rape, murder.suicide. In the Qu'ran it states, that suicide is a direct path to hell, and its the footsteps of satan.<br />
<br />
Yes the qu'ran talks about war, but its not to kill non muslims, it actually says fight against yourself, against ur crimes, against what you do wrong, " against ur nafs" meaining ur inner self, thats what jihad means, and if war comes, than do not hurt if they do not hold a sword, or are not part of the army. It states clearly in the qu'ran, that you will be responsible for ur own actions, when presented to god on the day of judgement, meaning god has given us a brain to use, so we must choose wats right and wrong in life, and that no one can force you do anything, if ur not wiling to do it urself. so its not just an action, its also the intention, if you do sumthing without the right intention, its useless, for example; praying, if ur just doing it to show ur dad, its useless, u must b willing to do it. What the taliban doing is wrong, u cant force ur women to put hi-jab, if shes not willing to, ur job is to let her know, to spread the word, other than that she will be responsible for her own actions. Hope that helped a bit, any other questions, feel free to msg me...Peace.

I've been trying to understand Islam and I have a Muslim friend that's teaching me things, but I still don't understand why there is so much violence and cruelty among some members of your faith. I do know that there are anti-Islamic sites on google that make up or misquote scriptures from the Qu'ran. , but still why is there so much violence? Is it really all a trick of the media? If I send you scriptures could tell me if they're mis-quoted, made up, or just false?

if some one offers me a billion dollars for beating a christian/hindu i WILL NOT do it.bcoz i obey allah's commandments.and i have studied and found that islam is the true religion.so i fear that allah may punish me if i do somthing evil like that ,
if i reach some place at night and i c a beautiful woman got lost .even if there is nobody to see us,i will not do any harm to her.bcoz thats against Allah's order. Allah created us for nothing but to worship him in his terms.
whenever i see a dead body of some animal on the street,i take it away from the road.though most of the people dnt do it.bcoz thats what Allah wants us to do.thats wot the Prophet mohamed taught us.
i help my mom even if i am lazy.i try talk only good to her even if i feel angry.
i and my muslim frds can go on and on how islam refines us...purifies us..made us beautiful people who does only good,who help the needy,who r good for the family and society.but most people no only what they watch on TV.

friend, it is a reality that people who dnt obey God will go to hell.unless God forgivs them,right? and 'what if' God wants us to be muslims.why should we blindly beleve in the religion that our parents beleved in.i beleve it is our obligation to use our brains to find God.bcoz we hav to make sure which is the true way of worshipping God.wether it is to go to church or to temple or mosque.lets use our brains.lets keep the emotional attachement to our parents' religion away .my sincere and loving request to u all is to watch these videos on youtube to find the truth: please search on youtube for yusuf estes embrace islam,yoshua evans bible led me to isla,,zakir naik ,keith moore islam, The Miraculous Quran and the Islamic revolution. i have been watching their videos and got convinced how superb the religion of islam is and the divinity and it is the only way to salvation.please please spend some of your leisure hours to watch those and other yusuf estes's vids.his speeches r amazing.it wont be wasting time trying to find God.the purpose of life.God didnt make us except to worship him in his terms.lets save yourself from dieing as a nonbelever.there is nothing scarier than it.my frds agree that i am very inteligent and gr8 in philosophical thinking.i dont beleve in any religion unless there is solid proof that it is from God.thats why i studied and i am so amazed by the true islam which is far difrent frm what we see on media.now truth is so clear to me that i wont give up islam even if someone offers me a billion dollar ! bcoz i dnt wanna be in hell.i want heaven.May Allah guide us all and unite us in the heaven.feel free to msg or mail me for any doubts.u may read the hard copy or pdf of the book called The Bible, The Qur'an and Science. by Dr. Maurice Bucaille. i will pray to the lord of the worlds for you .(friend,u have the freedome to accept or reject my invitation.but i invite u to islam with love and sincerety.u r sure that i wont get any money by doing this.i am doing this for our creator)

and to study a religion we have study it from its scriptures.u can leran islam from the holy quran and sahih al bukhari(authentice document on the life and teachings of the prophet). and if u analyse the scriptures,u will find other religious scriptures are also contains much violance.i dnt like to mention the names or put down any religion.but as far as i studied ,in hinduism their scripture called mahabharata is full of the story of battle.inwhich even God fights ! and in the scripture of another major religion u will see prophets commiting adultery and suicide.in islam God is not unjust and the prophets are of high morality.

Artsydesigns ma pleasure yeh this is da only reason y am putting these information so people can have knowledege bout it.Glad u liked it!

i dont wanna hurt any ones feeling by this msg so plx dont mind its jus what google says
