Never give one whose heart is deviant access to your two ears, for surely you never know what may find fixity in you.
All believers are but brothers. Hence, make peace between your two brothers, and remain conscious of God, so that you might be graced with His mercy. (49:10)
‘My Jihad’ Bus Ads Debut In Chicago
A new ad campaign debuted this week in Chicago that’s sure to turn some heads.
On Monday, 25 CTA buses began sporting ads from “My Jihad,” a new educational campaign introduced by the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ Chicago chapter (CAIR-Chicago).
Founded by Ahmed Rehab, CAIR-Chicago executive director, the campaign was conceived as a response to the anti-Islam ad campaign created by conservative blogger Pamela Geller, who ran a series of controversial “Defeat Jihad” ads on city buses last month.
The goal of the campaign, Rehab explained, is “reclaiming Jihad from the Muslim and anti-Muslim extremists who ironically, but not surprisingly, see eye to eye on Jihad,” according to a CAIR statement.
The literal meaning of Jihad, according to the BBC, is “struggle or effort” — not simply a “holy war” waged on behalf of Islam. It is a central doctrine of the Islamic faith.
