Find Out Why The Term “Jihad” Is Not A Dirty Word

Owing to uninformed people not taking care to educate themselves, the term “jihad” has become a dirty word in the U.S. The reality is that any person struggling to better themselves as a result of their love for God is engaging in jihad—this is the greater jihad (struggle).

When I admit that the lesser form of jihad, war, is a definition of “jihad” too, you may want to tell me, “I told you so.” But the fact is, it’s just about 100% certain that you would not be able to tell me even one true statement about the war jihad. Jihad in the media and jihad in the hands of uninformed Muslims is so far removed from the terms of true jihad that you would be flabbergasted upon hearing the truth.

We offer you an opportunity to hear the truth about jihad from the best qualified person in Minnesota—professor, businessman, and theologian Odeh Muhawesh. If you are so fortunate to hear any of his lectures, you will leave a changed person. The comments we hear from his students and audience members reflect gratefulness, astonishment, enlightenment, and a desire to hear more and more about Islam from him.
