“Jihad is to struggle. Greater Jihad is to struggle against ourselves to be better humans and lesser Jihad is to struggle to fight against corruption. My Greater Jihad is to ensure that I never support oppression against anyone for my sense of “nationalism” or any religious or familial ties. And my lesser Jihad is to stand with the oppressed people today regardless of their background, and to speak where they are being silenced.”
