Free download or read online Urdu Islamic Book "Al jihad Fil Islam" written By Syed Abul ala Maududi.“Jihad” is one of those terms, like “Fatwa”, which has been adopted and distorted almost beyond recognition by the media. Indeed, many Muslims are unaware of the full depth of the meaning of Jihad; at times it seems that we prefer to maintain our blinkered view of this fundamental teaching of Islam. In this short book, Mawlana Mawdudi spells it out for us, loud and clear. The speech on which this book is based was given in 1939, on the eve of the Second World War, but it cannot be regarded as a kind of historical relic. Although the phraseology may be that of the situation of the day, when communism was still in its ascendancy, the points which Mawdudi makes are as relevant and important now as they were half a century ago. Anyone wishing to know more about the Islamic understanding of Jihad (as opposed to the media version) will find a worthy introduction to the subject in this book.The word “Jihad” is usually translated into English as “Holy War”, and for a long time the connotations have implied “religious mania”. The word “Jihad” conjures up images of wild-eyed, bearded religious fanatics, brandishing swords, attacking the “Infidels” wherever they find them, and forcing them, virtually at knife-point, to recite the Kalimah*. It is as if the artists have drawn a picture with masterly strokes and inscribed beneath it the legend: “The History of this Nation is a Tale of Bloodshed”.
