Welcome to The Real Jihad. We challenge you to reconsider militant jihad.

Ask Yourself

Do you know who you are?

Do you know who you are? Do you know for what you were created? By whom you were created? What is the force inside of you for good? And what opposes this force for good? Will you make use of your force for good?

How to fight the real jihad

Step 1

Watch our videos. You’ll hear from former ISIS leaders and soldiers who have decided to share their true stories about the reality of life in the so-called Caliphate. Challenge yourself to consider that perhaps militant jihad is not all you might have been told.

Step 2

Read our writings. You’ll read about different scriptures in the Quran that may make you question what you’ve heard from groups like ISIS. You’ll learn to question how you can best serve Islam. This is your chance to reflect on your future.

Step 3

Take Action. We want you to be able to strive for a real jihad — the struggle to live a good and moral life. We provide ways for you to apply yourself in a productive and positive way in your community.
