Jihad defined

In law, according to general doctrine and in historical tradition, the jihād consists of military action with the object of the expansion of Islam and, if need be, of its defence.

“Jihad” in the Encyclopaedia of Islam

Don’t be fooled when told that Jihad is only or primarily one’s internal struggle with sin.
