from Abu Nurah – My Jihad Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Abu Nurah reads the Quran to try and understand what being a martyr or a jihadist REALLY mean. Jihad is an Arabic word meaning “struggle” and despite Western media’s attempt to associate this word with terrorism, it is actually used in the context of a spiritual struggle.

For example, it’s easy to neglect prayers. So praying on time can be considered jihad if it is difficult for you to pray on time.

In the same breath, Abu Nurah is encouraging you to pickup the Quran and read it for yourself. Don’t just listen to what the media is saying, search for the truth yourself! It’s your responsibility as a human being!
