in response to reader comment: Concept of Jizya in Islam

Submitted by Haji Jahangir Alam (India), May 19, 2009 at 02:04

Dear Hamid Mahmood.

First I think, that I will not make any comment but again I think that if I will not make any comment then I think that the Muslim will not know the real meaning .so I am trying to let them know the reality .

God bless you that you are Pakka Musalman ,and all the other person who raised Q against the illogical concept of Islam they are called NON -Muslim OR kafir .I am happy that you don't use the term (Thank for that ) But instead of giving any satisfy Answer .Having know knowledge you are only Accusing the person who speaks the truth. And now regarding JAZIA I must say that During the period of Hazrat Mohammed revenue was Collected for the benefit of the militants or the army or to drive the government . To established the Govt and to feed them the revenue system was introduced and they were 1)MALE GHANIMAT .2) FAI 3)ZAKAT 4) JAZIA 5) 5) KHARAJ .

MALE GHANIMAT was not a permanent revenue .so the Koran ordered that 1/5 of its should be given to prophet and to Allah ,but as Allah will not come to collect his / her REVENUE then the whole will be given to the prophet ,

For Sadqa and Zakat Hazrat Mohammed have appointed the collector to collect but their salary is fixed and they are not allowed to take more then their fixed salary .

JAZIA and KHARAJ is totally collected from the NON MUSLIM and its income is totally expend on soldier salary, for fighting expenses ( history of Islam by SHAH Moinuddin ahmed NADVI part 1 ,1983 )

So I think that you know only one part and the other part is invisible so please raise your knowledge . I request you to please read the book of 'Ghulam Jilani Bark " he was also a Pakistani ,and he was also accused and also given the TITLE OF KAFIR /INFIDAL ETC

Now I must enlighten you one more fact which our Maulanas and Clergyman have hidden from the common man. I think that you will be shocked and again raise finger towards me .But I will excuse you for your ignorance .

The fact is that the Zakat is a( form of ) TAX which Hazrat Mohammed has imposed on the Muslim during his reign , but the Muslim till date paying to the Madrassa ,Mosque ,Orphanage Home ,

If the Muslim were paying their revenues to their present Govt in the form of sales tax ,wealth tax ,income tax ,professional tax , vat ,corporate tax & etc .So in this way they were not giving the burden of paying Zakat to their ????? The Pakistan Government took this benefit and they ordered all the Banks to deduct the zakat amount (without the consent of the depositor ) from the a/c of the depositor whether he is agreed or not .( many of the depositor withdrawn their amount before year ending and deposit after the deduction time was over )

This system (paying Zakat not Tax to the govt ) is flourished in every part of the world and the Muslim have adopted this old fashioned .Instead of helping their existing government they are using their own method which should be condemned .The govt is more needy, so it is the Duty of each and every Muslim that they abolished the old fashioned and introduced the New Ones. Again if they want to distribute any amount in the form of Charity the can also do it , but by not cheating the government

Again I will remind you that the Zakat is not any thing especial it is simple a Tax imposed by the existence Government to the inhabitants of Mecca /Madina and not the whole WORLD

I pray for you and the rest of other Muslim too?? ?? ? ? ?
