All and every phenomenon (consciously or not) in the world that man is administered entirely by laws made by God, IE. they are obedient to God and submission to his laws, they are in the State of Islam. Man possesses the qualities of intelligence and the choice is therefore invited to submit to the good will of God and obey his law, i.e. to be a Muslim.

Submission to God's good will, together with obedience to his law beneficial, i.e. to become Muslim, is the best safeguard for peace and harmony throughout its existence of man.

What is still a subject to scrutiny in the Western world, based on the images of some distorted Islam would say is the concept of Jihad. Indeed the justification for Jihad is a complex and subtle issue. It is safe to assume that it is only until that carried out attacks (direct and indirect) delivered to the Muslim communities which, in somewhat disproportionate conditions, some counter-offensive occurred sporadically and somewhat strategically. The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), the second largest intergovernmental organization after the United Nations which has membership of 57 States had distributed on four continents, has closed the trend of the prevailing Islamophobia throughout the world on XI session of the Islamic Summit held in the Senegalese capital Dakar on 13-14 March 2008. The organization urged Europe and America to take stronger measures against 'Islamophobia' in a report had been prepared for a Summit of the 57 members in Dakar and warned that an increase "alarming" anti-Islamic insults and attacks in the West has become a threat to international security. This monitoring group hopes that Europe and North America to do more, through legislation and social action, to protect Muslims from threats and discrimination and prevent insults against Islam's religious symbols.

Misleading errors were made in our time and in the middle ages (of Islam) due to an inaccurate interpretation of the Jihad. As it must be understood that the word "Jihad" is derived from the Arabic root "Juhd", which means "strive" and therefore used figuratively to religious wars. It seems that the word "Yudh", which is commonly used by Hindus to mean war, is actually a corruption of the word jihad. Since Arabic is the mother of all languages, emerged from which all other languages, the word "Yudh", which is Sanskrit means war is really the same as "juhd" or "jihad". Over time the letter "jim" was replaced by the letter "and" and then another alteration, the word spoken with phonetic emphasis.

Patriarchs and religious scholars have always been jealous of prophets and messengers of God due to its previous losses to disciples and prestige. This provoked the hostility of the scholars Pagan, Jewish and Christian and prevented them from accepting the truth in the time of Muhammad (PBUH). Orphans and weak, defenceless women were massacred in the streets and alleys. Even so, God sent there not be any retaliation against evil. While the streets ran red with their blood, not make a sound. This attitude of humility and firmness caused the enemies of Islam to intensify its persecution, and keep preying on that Holy community to date.

As a result of the foregoing, here comes the commandment which in other words, came to be known as Jihad. The language par excellence, which still stands in the Qur'an as specific to those days when people come into the fold of Islam were being slaughtered like sheep and lambs, as follows: Allah has heard the cryof oppression who are killed and converted unfairly from their land and allowed to retaliate. Allah is omnipotent and capable of helping the oppressed. (Al - Juzw 17, Surah al - Hajj).
