Abstract Unlike Judeo-Christianity, Islam does not contain a core of martyrdom. Rather, it occurs in three disparate areas: war/jihad, asceticism, and Shi'ism. I examine the relationship between jihad and martyrdom and their classical and contemporary meanings.
Notes This paper is part of my MA thesis Dying for God: Martyrdom in the Shii and Babi Religions (Islamic Studies, University of Toronto, 1997).

See also Scientific Panel Investigating Nine-Eleven, which I helped set up in 2002-2003 using my background in Islamic studies and my certification in Internet Technologies (Bodwell College, 2003).
