With her talk on "Muhammad: A Prophet for Our Time", Armstrong first takes on the definition of Jihad, explaining that as opposed to "Holy War", the term more appropriately describes a "struggle" all believers must wage on their way to spiritual clarity. What's more, she dispels the idea that Islam has always had a compulsive, violent agenda, and instead cites historical cases where Muhammad himself brought peace to Arabia by means of sit-in protest. Tracing her biography of Islam's founder to the present day, Armstrong demonstrates that cultural forces such as encroaching secularism and modernization led to violent reactions within extremist circles that bear no resemblance to Muhammad's original principles.
