What is Jihad? Literally translated, it means the effort or struggle to reach a certain goal. You differentiate between the so-called “lesser” and the “greater” Jihad. The greater Jihad describes a moral and religious effort. The goal is to personally improve yourself. The lesser, or physical Jihad describes military battles for the expansion or defense of Muslim territory. This differentiation is derived from a manuscript transmission from a companion of Mohammad. It is originally found in Shiite religious tradition. But also among some early Sunni scholars.
Nowadays, many Muslims differentiate between the lesser and greater Jihad. Many Qur’an verses concerning the Jihad stem from the second period of revelation in the city of Medina. During this time, the Muslim community often got entangled in military battles. And definitions of Jihad were important for the law of war. These scriptures were an important part of Islamic law science.
But there were also rules and constraints for the military Jihad. The Jihad was not a license for unrestricted killing. For example it was defined, that even during time of war, no women, children or old people were allowed to be killed – only soldiers. The Last Jihad, with the goal of expansion of Muslim territory, was in [the 16th century] during the expansion phase of the Ottoman Empire. Such of Jihad could only be declared by a superior authority, that was recognized by all Muslims.
Most Islamic scholars agree on this. But in modern times, most of them say that military Jihad must only be used defensively.

My personal Jihad starts by getting up in the morning and following the call to prayer instead of staying in bed I later go to university and try to understand what all the books try to tell me. My Jihad means being patient with my fellow human beings, even if they get angry with me and, despite offered compromises, stay stubborn. My Jihad means telling the truth, no matter how uncomfortable it gets and always listen closely when my friends tell me their stories. No matter how much stress I have. My Jihad means being friendly, even when I am met with unkindliness – and reach out with a helping hand, even when it reaches for nothing. My Jihad means working and writing. Offering others my voice and, if they all go, stay.
Contrary to the past, in today’s world a culture of peaceful coexistence between states emerged. There is international law and different international conventions. Many Muslim philosophers of the last 2 centuries therefore developed new interpretations of the term “Jihad”. The focus was not on the military definition, but on theologically reasoned ethical and moral meaning. Source: LYBIO.NET
In modern interpretation, the basic goals in Jihad are in the spotlight. They focus on the origin of the word meaning “effort” or struggle”. Therefore definitions of the word emerged, that are to be seen in the context of personal development and social responsibility.
For example, you speak of “Jihad at-tarbiyya” The effort to strongly stand up for education. “Jihad asch-schaitan” – the effort to reject the evil inside of you. And “Jihad al-lisan” and “Jihad al-kalam” – The willingness to discuss things with one another and resolve differences of opinion with words. These interpretations of Islam mean a peaceful, argumentative conveying of Islam. For example reforms in the social and educational sector.
