Muslims are commanded to fight unbelievers until they are either dead, converted to Islam, or in a permanent state of subjugation under Muslim
domination. Allowing people of other faiths to live and worship independently of Islamic rule is not an option.
Sura (9:29) "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor
acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves
subdued." Suras 9 and 5 are the last "revelations" that Muhammad handed down.
Sura (9:5) "But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in
wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practice regular charity, then open the way for
them..." Prayer and charity are among the Five Pillars of Islam, as salat and zakat
Sura (9:12) "But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then are they your brethren in religion" This confirms that Muhammad is
speaking of conversion to Islam.
Sura (2:193) "And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion be only for Allah. But if they desist, then let there be no hostility except
against wrong-doers." The key phrase is to fight until "religion be only for Allah."
Hadith: The Messenger of Allah said: "I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad
is the messenger of Allah..."
"Allah's Apostle said, 'I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.' And if they say
so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere
with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.'"
"While we were in the Mosque, the Prophet came out and said, "Let us go to the Jews" We went out till we reached Bait-ul-Midras. He said to them,
"If you embrace Islam, you will be safe. You should know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle, and I want to expel you from this land. So,
if anyone amongst you owns some property, he is permitted to sell it, otherwise you should know that the Earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle."
Muslims are taught to follow in the way of Muhammad. Putting two and two together, Muslims down through the centuries have forced Christians, Jews,
Hindus, Buddhists, Zoroastrians, pagans and others to accept Islam, either by bluntly offering them death as an alternative, or by making their lives
so miserable (ie. taxes, denial of rights...) that the conquered convert to Islam under the strain.
