A mujahid (Arabic: مجاهد mujāhid) is one who struggles for the sake of Allah and Islam. The literal meaning of "Mujahid" is "struggler" or "striver" and common in Middle Eastern and Southwest Asian names.

The plural form of mujāhid is mujāhidūn in standard Arabic but the colloquial or dialectal form mujāhidīn (alternately spelled mujahideen) is more frequently encountered. A few English speakers use mujahids.


  • If a blasphemer can be given the title "Sir" by the West despite the fact he has hurt the feelings of Muslims, then a mujahid [religious warrior] who has been fighting for Islam against the Russians, Americans and British must be given the lofty title of Islam, Saifullah.
  • 19 young men were able - by the grace of Allah, the Most High - to change the direction of its compass. And in fact, the subject of the Mujahideen has become an inseparable part of the speech of your leader and the effects and signs are not hidden.
  • "Not equal are those believers remaining [at home] - other than the disabled - and the mujahideen, [who strive and fight] in the cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives. Allah has preferred the mujahideen through their wealth and their lives over those who remain [behind], by degrees. And to both Allah has promised the best [reward]. But Allah has preferred the mujahideen over those who remain [behind] with a great reward." (Qur'an 4:95)
  • "And verily We shall try you till We know those of you who strive hard (Mujahideen) and the steadfast, and till We test your record." (Qur'an 47:31)
