Sharia law for non-Muslims

Holy War (Jihad)

(o9.0) – Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada signifying warfare to establish the religion…

The scriptural basis for jihad… is such Koranic verses as: 

-1- “Fighting is prescribed for you” (Koran 2: 216); 
-2- “Slay them wherever you find them” (Koran 4: 89); 
-3- “Fight the idolators utterly” (Koran 9: 36); 

and such hadiths as the one related by Bukhari and Muslim that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said: 

“I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and perform the prayer, and pay zakat. If they say it, they have saved their blood and possessions from me, except for the rights of Islam over them. And their final reckoning is with Allah”;

(o9.1) – Jihad [against non-Muslims in their own countries ] is a communal obligation… “He who provides the equipment for a soldier in Jihad has himself performed Jihad”

(o9.7) – The caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians until they become Muslim or pay the non-Muslim poll tax in accordance with the word of Allah Most High:

“Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled” (Quran 9.29))

(o9.9) – The caliph fights all other people until they become Muslim

(Bigotry toward those outside the Islamic faith)

(o4.9) – The indemnity paid for a Jew or Christian is one-third of the indemnity paid for a Muslim. The indemnity paid of a Zoroastrian is one-fifteenth of that a Muslim. 

(h8.24) – It is not permissible to give zakat to a non-Muslim.

(e2.3) – It is offensive to use the vessels [dishes] of non-Muslims or wear their clothes.

e8.3 says that a non-Muslim may not touch the Quran.

f21.2 says that non-Muslims are not allowed to ‘mix’ with Muslims at certain events.

g1.2 says that it is permissible for a Muslim to visit a non-Muslim who is ill, but not recommended.  (Same with visiting the grave of a non-Muslim relative – g5.8)

(L5.2) – a non-Muslim may not inherit from a Muslim. (or vice versa)

o1.2 states that there is no penalty for a Muslim who kills a non-Muslim

o11.0-11 says that non-Muslim subjects of an Islamic state may live free from harm if they 

– pay a special ‘poll’ tax (the jizya)

– comply with certain Islamic rules, specifically the penalty for adultery (stoning) and theft (amputation)

– distinguish themselves from Muslims by dressing differently

– keep to the side of the side of the street when Muslims pass

– accept a lesser form of greeting

– agree not to build new churches or build houses higher than those of Muslims

The agreement is broken (meaning that the non-Muslim may be lynched) if he breaks the rules, fails to pay the poll tax, “leads a Muslim away from Islam“, “mentions something impermissible” about Islam, or has sex with a non-Muslim woman.

(o22.13) – The judge treats two litigants impartially, seating both in places of equal honor, attending to each, and so forth, unless one is a non-Muslim, in which case he gives the Muslim a better seat
