Boko Haram- Muslim Army?

I this is a beautiful article that I thought I should share. There are however some things that I don’t agree with. The only one worthy of mentioning is the author’s definition of Jihad to mean ” Holy War”. In Islam, war is never holy.

As the writer correctly stated, Jihad means “to struggle.” It can be applied to war, as war is a struggle. But it is not the general definition of “war” or “holy war”. In Arabic, the term “qudus” means “holy”, and the term “qitaal” which means “fighting.”

The article is on point and a must read
