Through his sharp edged disapproval of social alienation, in depth political observations and undying optimism about humanity Asghar Ali Engineer deconstructs the more-than-just-a-word Jihad from a liberation point of view of contemporary Islam. 'Jihad and Other Essays', which consists of 42 of his recent essays, has the potential to re-examine the word play of Jihad and has the talent to rewrite the future of a stereotyped past.
Jihad is commonly misunderstood as 'Holy War', but it really means 'to struggle in the way of Allah'. Jihad is an important religious duty for Muslims. Through these pages of meaningful defense, Asghar Ali Engineer helps the world understand the word of Jihad better with the support of substantial thoughts, confessions and social study.
