- The discourse of terrorism and jihad becomes popular after the 11th September 2001 tragedy at the World Trade Center (WTC). George W. Bush claimed that the perpetrator of the WTC bombing is the radical Islamic network (Al-Qaeda) that is led by Usamah bin Ladin. On the contrary, the radical Islamic group believed that their action is the actualization of jihad doctrine as commanded by Islam. The term “jihad” in Islam is often defined based on two different sources: the Arabic etymology, and the terminology of Islamic law concept, whether based on Al Qur'an, Al-Sunnah, or Ijma'of Ulama. The two sources have a different definition, which is often misunderstood. This is qualitative descriptive research, where jihad is discussed in the context of education (e.g., good teaching practice) instead of extreme practices such as violence or war as displayed in some recent events. In its broader sense, jihad can include teachers’ efforts in improving the quality of their teaching.
