Jihad, a word popularly translated by the media as 'holy war', provides the ideological underpinnings to violent extremists, while at the same time informs the average westerner that Islam is a religion that advocates violence and barbarism. And yet the famous saying of the Prophet Muhammad, while returning from battle, 'We have returned from the lesser jihad to the greater jihad' has ensured that to the majority of Muslims around the world, jihad primarily refers to the inner struggle against base desires, and the spiritual and moral endeavour to promote human values and achieve fairness and justice in society.

To simplify the debate , many generally refer to the two types of jihad : the greater jihad ( struggle against the self ) and the lesser jihad ( warring in the path of God ) . When the term " jihad ” is used in this book , we are ...

"Islamic fundamentalist terrorists employ the tenets of jihad as their justification for attacks on Jews and 'Crusaders'. But the terrorists have perverted the concept of jihad by focusing only on the holy war revelations of the Prophet Muhammad that contain the 'lesser jihad'. Conversely, the 'greater jihad' confirms the main message of peace and justice in the Qur'an and the life of the Prophet."--Abstract, p.iii.

In the European, war for faith is most often ignored as a relic of the past, that are part of a time less sensible and less grown than our own. From this position, Muslims who recommend holy war are seen as spiritual fans who assistance lawful and opponent activity. By evaluation, war for faith has an identified set up the Islamic world, associated with a time tested spiritual requirement: trying towards faith by heart, mouth area, and arms. This trying is particular by the now familiar phrase jihad. In fact, trying by the knife is the "lesser" jihad, and many Muslims themselves are having difficulties by reductionistic appeal to jihad to guarantee terrorism, pattern, and anti-western activity. According to Brownish, for there to be any discussion between Islam and the European we must understand that in the European faith and state guidelines are placed in individual places, while normative Islam regards faith as successfully important to the government order. From this position spiritual problems should have an area in statecraft, such as the use of military power.In this book Robert Rhodes investigates the social traditions of the Religious European and Islam in order to encourage a valuable discussion on the real of war for faith. No other problem features the difference between these two cultures more clearly or with more significance for their interrelations throughout qualifications in today's world.

Islam means "peace" and "submission to God." With its ethical system of instruction for a balanced life based on faith and reason, how did this "religion of peace" come to be feared? After the 9/11 tragedy, Islam was judged by many in the West to be a hub of terrorism and a threat to world peace. People everywhere voiced concern over its concepts of war and Jihad. Ashraf traces these and related concepts from their inception in Qur'anic injunctions and the Prophet's precepts to their current interpretation, evaluating them in their spiritual, moral, juridical, and cultural contexts. Misunderstandings about Islam lie at the core of much bitterness and violence. With no central authority to definitively interpret its teachings, misconceptions regarding Islam's ideology of war and peace abound. To label Islam as militant is to misinterpret jihad as simply a call to war and to ignore its laws governing warfare, which emphasize restraint as far as possible. Islamic Philosophy of War and Peace explains the spirit of Islam, its mandate for peace, and what the pluralistic notion of jihad stands for in the hope that clearing up ambiguities will foster peaceful relations between Muslims and the rest of the world.

The interest in the topic of spirituality as a more or less independent dimension of quality of life is continuously growing, and research questions are beginning to change as the field of religiosity changes, becoming more diverse and pluralistic. Addressing new topics in health research also relies on standardized questionnaires. The number of instruments intended to measure specific aspects of spirituality is growing, and it is particularly difficult to evaluate the new instruments. This Special Issue will focus on some of the established instruments (updating them to different languages and cultures), but will also describe the features and intentions of newly-developed instruments, which may potentially be used in larger studies to develop knowledge relevant to spiritual care and practice. This Special Issue will serve as a resource on the instruments used to study the wide range of organized religiosity, the individual experience of the divine, and an open approach in the search for meaning and purpose in life.

This book examines the way in which early Muslims begin to understand normative Islamic practice through the role of Muslim scholars who define, preserve, and pass on Islamic traditions. This later becomes the foundation of Sunni identity and Sufi piety. In the figure of ʿAbdallāh b. al-Mubārak (118–181/736–797), we find a paragon of the fields of ḥadīth, zuhd, and jihād, as attested to by the large number of references to him in the classical Islamic texts.

Of the many Islamist groups that have emerged within the Muslim world over the last two decades, perhaps none has had so great an impact on Middle Eastern and International affairs as Hizbullah, the Party of God. This group of mainly Lebanese Shìte Muslims gained both infamy and fame by its resort to militancy mixed with political pragmatism in the pursuit of its goals. The oscillation between these two extremes has left most scholars and policymakers perplexed. This book serves as a pathway for understanding not only Hizbullah but also for other Islamist groups and their challenges to contemporary politics. A. Nizar Hamzeh examines the Hizbullah of Lebanon through a structural analysis using original and archival sources. Based on a constructed theoretical framework from a number of theories on crisis conditions, leadership, political parties and guerrilla warfare, In the Path of Hizbullah stands alone in its qualitative and quantitative treatment of one of the most complex contemporary Islamist organizations and provides a view of the party's future.
