VIA| I am sure you heard of this new TV series by Oprah: “Belief”.
Last Friday she had on the show a Muslim Scholar that believes that Jihad (the Muslim war) is simply Misunderstood.
While “jihad” is defined by the Merriam-Webster Dictionary as “a holy war waged on behalf of Islam as a religious duty,” the scholar asserted that such an explanation of the word is actually far from accurate.
YEAH RIGHT!? So inaccurate that is happening all over the world and thousands are dying daily.
“One of the most misunderstood concepts of Islam is ‘jihad’, which many people interpret as ‘a holy war,’” Soni contended.
“But there is nothing holy about war,” he argued. “What ‘jihad’ actually represents is an internal struggle, the battle that is raging in our own heart.
OH MY…This is Ridicolous!
If jihad is simply a spiritual struggle, then why are there thousands upon thousands of Muslims worldwide who have joined violent jihad groups? Why are there any violent jihad groups at all? Why is this misunderstanding of jihad so widespread?
Let Oprah ans her friends reply!
