Because such a definition is framed by both ideological and legal criteria, even “jihad of the sword” is not quite equivalent to the common Western understanding of holy war. The present volume centers on the origins of holy war in Islam, while not intending to provide a full understanding of the meaning of the term in classical Islam. 22 My purpose, rather, is to trace the genesis and development of religiously sanctified war in the earliest Islamic period, whether that is categorized in Islamic parlance as jihad or referred to through other terminology.
47 To the pre-Islamic Arabian poet, fate cannot be avoided or escaped. It will find you wherever you may be, whether you fortify yourself in castles or even take refuge in the sun: The young man runs, but his fated death (himam al-mawt) reaches him. Every day brings the fixed term nearer to him. I know that my day will once reach me And I shall not care for my world any more. 48 What is inevitably fated in pre-Islamic Arabic poetry is the necessity of death, which is preordained. 49 One will meet one’s demise in a particular way at a particular place, so it is no use trying to avoid it by attempting to change the course of one’s own history.

This movement, however, was restricted by the northern desert, which tended to keep large population movements, including invading armies, from moving southward.
