Jihad Doesn’t Has to Kill the People

Written by Indra Sudarsono

Terrorist use “Jihad” word to kill any people in the world, especially in Indonesia is being attacked by terrorist with bomb in any places in Indonesia until killed any people aren’t guilty. What does “Jihad” has to kill any people?

Jihad is struggle seriously according to Islam precept. Jihad is done to support and keep Islam precept stand constantly. Jihad is done so that the people back to the true way. Jihad’s purpose is to make the world peaceful and doesn’t to make the world brake.

Terrorist has killed any people and the terrorist used “Jihad” to kill any people. Especially in Indonesia, terrorist has killed the people with bomb. Terrorist has made destruction in anywhere and terrorist has made damage for any people with their way. The target of terrorist is western people, in terrorist mind they have to kill the western people as counter attack about war in the middle of east. However, not all western people made a sin about war in the middle of east, many western people also banned to war in the middle of east. The terrorist was wrong if they thought about that.

In Indonesia, the terrorist bombed any places and killed western people. The terrorist used commit suicide bomb to kill any people. The bomb was applied in their body. In their mind, they has done a wise way with bombed and killed any people and they will get the paradise because their way. However that was wrong, they have done the homicide. They use Islam precept to bombed and killed, in Islam precept nothing that way and Islam didn’t invite the people to killed anyone.

The terrorist recruited the members from any generation. The young man is the most of numbers of recruitment. The terrorist recruit the young man as executor in terrorism. The young man was asked to be a bomber.

Jihad can be done with study, work, and etc. Moreover, Jihad is not terrorism. Terrorism is our enemy. Let’s attack everything about terrorism. Our image as citizens of Indonesia is dirty. We solve our name together and keep our young generation from terrorism. Our young generation is future of our nation.



  1. What is jihad

    First, we would like to start with stating that Islam does not call for violence; rather it abhors all forms of violence and terrorism, whether against Muslims or non-Muslims. Islam, moreover, calls for peace, cooperation, and maintaining justice, and provides for the happiness and welfare of humanity as a whole. This fact is declared in the Qur’an when Allah says: (Allah commands justice, the doing of good, and liberality to kith and kin, and He forbids all shameful deeds, and injustice and rebellion: He instructs you, that ye may receive admonition.) (An-Nahl 16: 90)

    Jihad is one of the words that have been misused due to misunderstanding its true meaning. The word “Jihad” is derived from the Arabic word “Jahd” which means fatigue or the word “Juhd” which means effort. A Mujahid is he who strives in the Cause of Allah and exerts efforts which makes him feel fatigued. The word “Jihad” means exerting effort to achieve a desired thing or prevent an undesired one. In other words, it is an effort that aims at bringing about benefit or preventing harm.

    Jihad can be observed through any means and in any field whether material or moral. Among the types of Jihad are struggling against one’s desires, the accursed Satan, poverty, illiteracy, disease, and fighting all evil forces in the world.

    There are many religious texts that refer to these types of Jihad. Among the forms of Jihad is defending life, property or honor. Those who die while engaging in Jihad are considered to be martyrs, as confirmed by Hadith. Jihad is also done to avert aggression on home countries and on all that is held sacred, or in order to face those who try to hinder the march of the call of truth.

    In Islamic Shari`ah, Jihad in the Cause of Allah means fighting in order to make the Word of Allah most high, and the means for doing so is taking up arms in addition to preparation, financing and planning strategies. A large number of people are supposed to take part in Jihad including farmers, craftsmen, traders, doctors, engineers, workers, security men, preachers, writers and all those who directly or indirectly participate in the battle.

    This type of Jihad was a major concern of Muslims in the beginning of the formation of the Islamic community, and a lot of verses of the Glorious Qur’an and the Hadith advocated and encouraged it. Almighty Allah says: (March forth, whether you are light (being healthy, young and wealthy) or heavy (being ill, old and poor) and strive with your wealth and your lives in the Cause of Allah.) (At-Tawbah 9: 41) Jihad is considered an individual duty (Fard `Ein), on all Muslims who are capable and fit to fight, in the event of being invaded by the enemy, and is considered a collective duty (Fard Kifayah) in the event of not being invaded. However, if the Imam (leader) calls to Jihad, people must respond to his call. This is evident from Allah’s Saying, (O you who believe! What is the matter with you, that when you are asked to march forth in the Cause of Allah (i.e. Jihad) you cling heavily on the earth?) (At-Tawbah 9: 38), and the Hadith narrated by Al-Bukhari and Muslim, “When you are called to Jihad, then go forth.”
