Keywords:Jihad, Education, Science, State, Economics, Analytical Study.
The purpose of this paper is to introduce Jihad in a new light, with a new perspective based on the needs of the current era. Islam is a dynamic religion.1 The Almighty Allah declared Islam the last revealed religion, and there is no need for any other revelation or prophecy. Only Islam is a religion accepted to the Almighty Allah, as stated in the holy Quran:“Whoever seeks a way other than Islam, it will never be accepted from them, and in the Hereafter they will be among the losers.” It was also declared that Islam will be the dominant religion, but unfortunately, Islam is oppressed in the current world. The only reason is that the Muslims forgot the Jihad. Here in this paper, Jihad, according to me, isn’t limited to a specific field of Qital (قتال) only. Muslims need to do jihad in every field and in every walk of life. According to the dynamic quality of Islam, it is the need of today that Muslims be aware of each field of life. There are different types of wars running in the modern world, like educational war, scientific war, political war, and economic war. In this current scenario, the Muslim world has a very low contribution. So in the light of Quranic verse (وَأَعِدُّوا لَهُمْ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُمْ مِنْ قُوَّةٍ) Today's Muslims must excel in every aspect of life and govern the entire world; this is only possible if the Muslim world takes the place of the world's developed and strong educational, scientific, political, and economic nations; otherwise, Islam will be in decline.
