Jihad is one of the most important teachings of Islam. But jihad is not synonymous with war. In Islam another word is used for war and fighting. This word is qital. When the Quran refers to war or fighting, it uses the word qital and not jihad.

Jihad literally means to strive or to struggle. So jihad actually means peaceful struggle, especially for dawah work. The Quran says:

Do great jihad with the help of the Quran. (25:52)

The Quran is simply a book, and not a sword, so do great jihad with the Quran means do great jihad with the ideological power of the Quran. In fact, jihad is only another name for peaceful activism. And peaceful activism is the only weapon by which Islam wants to achieve all its aims and objectives.

The Quran has this to say of the mission of the Prophet Muhammad:

We have not sent you forth but as a mercy to mankind. (Quran)

HERE ARE some SAMPLES of " PEACEFUL struggle"
"I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"
"The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement"
