Jihad vs. Terrorism is Dr. Maher Hathouts profound and timely critique of the current approaches to understanding the Islamic concept of "jihad." This word, in Arabic, literally means, "Struggle." Rather than its popular media connotation of "holy war," Dr. Hathout explains that the true meaning of "jihad" in Islamic traditions is that of an internal spiritual struggle, focused on individual purification and the promotion of social justice and human rights.
