Jihad Without Violence by Dr. Ahmed Afzaal

Into the battle over whether Islam is by nature aggressive and violent or passive and peaceful, Ahmed Afzaal brilliantly outlines a superior alternative.  By arguing that Islam is a force of social transformation toward justice but that nonviolence will be its most effective method in the contemporary world, Afzaal rescues jihad from its popular distortions and reclaims it as an essential part of Muslim identity.
