Muslims don't understand Islam.

"Another issue is the lack of understanding of Islam by the Muslims themselves. The majority of Muslims today do not understand the true meaning of Islam, even the basic concepts. Here, jihad takes the form of disseminating the true message of Islam to the Muslims and educating them so that they fully understand their deen.ConclusionsWe need to understand ourselves, to understand Islam, to educate others about Islam, to understand the contemporary challenges, to equip ourselves with the right tools so that we can face and counter the contemporary challenges in the right way. When we talk about the concept of jihad we shouldn't just talk about the common understanding of jihad - we shouldn't get emotional about it, forgetting about ourselves or the world we're living in or the situation of our ummah or about the challenges we are facing. Thus it is not easy to truly understand the different aspects of the concept of jihad or how to implement these aspects in our world today."

    Looks like u have a problem understanding the concept of jihad.

    As far as I know the word 'jihad' doesn't mean WAR. That's one of the biggest misunderstandings ppl like u have about Islam. There are many forms of jihad, like travelling far away from ur home and loved ones in the quest of knowledge, in other words, education. That is also a form of jihad.

    Then there's fighting to save ur religion and country from ur enemies. I think thats the type of jihad ur interested in. Well u see, if ppl in Iraq are fighting to save their country from the clutches of invading US forces, I would say that is jihad. I would say they have a good cause. Same goes for Afghanistan n Palastine.

    ppl in Iraq are not fighting to save their country. The sunnis and shia are fighting among themselves.
