Its Shari’ah, Stupid #16

This is the sixteenth in a series about offensive Jihad in Fiqh.

al-Amili, d. 1622, teolog under shah Abbas I. Jami’-i ’Abbasi: yakdawrah-i fiqh-i Farsi (Teheran 1980-talet), s. 153 f.

Islamic Holy war against followers of other religions, such as Jews, is required unless they convert to Islam or pay the poll tax.

Whatever would account for al-Amili having that opinion? Perhaps it was something Allah said.

9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

Could it be something Moe said?

Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 177:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”

That combination is what Shari’ah is made of.
