Why Jihad?

Q: Someone has asked me that why Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) ordered his followers to have war and fight by the name of Jihad while we say that our religion is for peace? So how come peace with fight?


A: Refer to your local Ulama, Insha Allah they will be in a better position to explain to you these issues.

And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
