Muad'Dib's Jihad[1] (10196 AG - 10208 AG), also known as Paul's Jihad, was an event that occurred throughout the Known Universe after the rise of Paul-Muad'Dib and his rise to Emperor of the Imperium.


After the defeat of Shaddam IV and the Imperial Forces on the Plain of Arrakeen, in 10193 AG, the Fremen expanded the battle off-world, beginning after the deposal of Shaddam IV in 10196.

This Jihad spread throughout the entire universe, pillaging millions of planets. A few campaigns include those on Naraj and its moons. The Fremen Fedaykin commander Farok was head of the Naraj Campaign.

The only planet that was spared the raging fire of Muad'Dib's Jihad was the home world of House Atreides, Caladan. Lady Jessica, mother of Paul Muad'Dib, refused the Fremen any access to the planet, including religious pilgrimage.

The Jihad ended in 10208 AG. According to Muad'Dib, conservative estimates put the Jihad's casualties at 61 billion lives, the sterilization of ninety planets, and the "demoralization" of five hundred additional worlds. Furthermore, 40 different religions were wiped out, along with their followers.
