War and Peace 

Harb al-Muqadis (Holy War)

 Jihad means ‘to struggle in the way of Allah’.

 Greater Jihad is the way in which every Muslim makes a personal effort to follow the teachings of Allah (God) and to fight evil.

Lesser Jihad is when Muslims fight to protect their religion.

Or just use bitesize it really helps here is the link:

Good luck for your exam on Thursday i got mine next Tuesday on Christianity
