What does the Koran say about Jihad? I assume there must be clear direction in the Koran to carry out Jihad based on the number of times I hear about Jihad and its connection to Islam. I will start with googling the word “Jihad” and “Koran” together and see if I can locate verses with those words in them. I know the Christian Bible has concordances that can be used to look up specific words in the Bible. The Strong’s concordance comes to mind. It would be nice if there were concordances for the Koran, since it would be a powerful research tool. Concordance or no Concordance, I will get to the bottom of this thing called Jihad and its connection to Islam.
