ISLAMISM AS RELIGIOUS FUNDAMENTALISM
Islamism/jihadism is religious term used by Muslims from the time of Prophet
Muhammad to signify an obligation of a believer to struggle. Jihad commonly referred to as a
holy war is a quranic word that has always explained the duty for Muslim struggle either
spiritually or physically in the determination towards the will of Allah
ii
. Key Muslim scholars
have always argued jihadism as an obligation by Muslims to fight for Allah and against Muslim
oppression by use of the sword or the ultimate sacrificing of a believer towards a Muslim
struggle in an act called mujahedeen. The word jihad originates from the Quran with 41
appearances stressing on the crucial practices that a Muslim believer is called to accomplish in
this world. The term can be used to wage a war against non believers in a measure for religious
expansion as well as territorial defense of a Muslim empire. It unites all Muslims in an obligation
to struggle in deep oneself to build a good society by fostering peace and calling against
secularism, external influences and the conservation of the Islamic culture. In the quranic hadiths
