Best Jihad for Women

Sahih Bukhari

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 595:

Narrated ‘Aisha:

(the mother of the faithful believers) I said, “O Allah’s Apostle! We consider Jihad as the best deed.” The Prophet said, “The best Jihad (for women) is Hajj Mabrur. ”

The Arabic Word Jihad  DOES NOT MEAN HOLY WAR!

Jihad means “Struggle” “utmost effort”

  1. As a compliment to the original post. Quran doesn’t really use the word Jihad for Holy War. The word is Qitaal. And in Quran we have many ayahs regarding Qitaal, more than Salah.

    Unlike Qitaal the word Jihad has much more wider scope. Qitaal is more specific. However, we can use the word Jihad when we actually mean Qitaal. One should consider the context.

  2. Jihaad means to strive or to struggle.Every one say holy war this is in correct.It is now fardh on evry one of us may Allah give us hidayah to do jihaad.
