Introduction; Chapter 1: Striving for, in, and in the path of God: Qur'anic Imperatives in the Meccan Period; Chapter 2: Fighting in the Path of God: A Religious and Moral Obligation; Chapter 3: The Ethics of Fighting, Refraining from Fighting, and Peacemaking; Chapter 4: Dying in the Path of God: Exegeses of Martyrdom; Chapter 5: Jihad and Martyrdom Compared in Early and Later Hadith Literature; Chapter 6: Jihad and Martyrdom in Early and Late Treatises on the Merits of Jihad; Chapter 7: The Excellences of Patient Forbearance: Counter-Narratives on Striving in the Path of God; Chapter 8: Modern and Contemporary Debates on Jihad and Martyrdom I: Political and Militant Perspectives; Chapter 9: Modern and Contemporary Debates on Jihad and Martyrdom II: Privileging History, Context, and Polysemy; Conclusion: Analysis of Texts: A Summation
Jihad is often assumed to refer to armed combat and Muslim martyrdom is understood to be invariably of the military kind. By canvassing a more diverse range of texts - Qur'an, tafsir, hadith, edifying and hortatory literature -- this book recuperates a more nuanced and multifaceted understanding of both jihad and martyrdom through time.
