If you are a not a muslim than you must take this seriously.Although many of our Muslim brothers and sisters will call me anti-islam for this, I am
not 'anti-islam'.You can even check my posts and threads to confirm this.All I am doing is informing you guys something that is true and that you must
know.Also don't be shocked if this thread goes down.
Now lets get to the point.
What is Jijya?
Under Islamic law, jizya or jizyah is a per capita tax levied on an Islamic state's non-Muslim citizens.From the point of view of the Muslim
, jizya was a material proof of the non-Muslims' acceptance of subjection to the state and its laws
, ".In return, non-Muslim citizens
were permitted to practice their faith, to enjoy a measure of
communal autonomy, to be entitled to the Muslim state's protection from outside
What did Mohammad say regarding Jijya?
Qur'an (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
From the Hadith:
Muslim (19:4294) - There are many places in the hadith where Muhammad tells his followers to demand the jizya of non-believers. Here he lays down the
rule that it is to be extorted by force:
"If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay
the tax, seek Allah's help and fight them"
Bukhari (53:386) - The command for Muslims to spread Islamic rule by force, subjugating others until they either convert to Islam or pay money, is
eternal: Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya (i.e. tribute); and our
Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:--
"Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us remain
alive, shall become your master."
This is being recounted during the reign of Umar, Muhammad's companion and the second caliph who sent conquering armies into non-Muslim Persian and
Christian lands (after Muhammad's death).
Ishaq 956 & 962 -
"He who withholds the Jizya is an enemy of Allah and His apostle."
The words of Muhammad.
Many riots,protest have taken and are still taking place because of Jizya. These are of particular importance :-
