Those who are Closest to their Lords
O Jews! What have you done to generate such fury in these mothers?

"Those who belive, And suffer exile and strive with might and main in Allah's cause, with their goods and their lives, they have the highest rank in the sight of Allah." Holy Quran 9:20 Here is a good description of Jihad. It may require fighting in Allah's cause, as a form of self-sacrifice. But ist essence consists in (1) a true and sincere Faith, which so fixes its gaze on Allah, that all selfish or wordly motives seem paltry and fade away, and (2) an earnest and ceaseless activity, involving the sacrifice (if need be) of life, person, or property, in the service of Allah.
