Jihad in the Hindu tradition
Jihad, in its original meaning of "struggle", as in a struggle for righteousness, is not unique to Islam. It is in fact predated by the Hindu tradition in the Bhagavad Gita by about 1100 years.

I wasn't aware of that. Its interesting that that the concept was apparently adopted by Islam.

RE: Jihad in the Hindu tradition
i was aware that jihad literally means struggle im just curious as to the limits by which it is defined, or of its a word as undefined contextually as struggle itself. For example is it used in the sense of a particualr struggle or struggles or generally as a word used instead of struggle

my atheism is just like your religion
only i subtract 1 one more god

The full meaning of Jihad translates out to a personal struggle, basically a life struggle for one's self.
