Islam And Non-Muslims

Islam And Non-Muslims


Islam protects the blood, wealth and honor of non-Muslims who have a pact with an Islamic nation. They may not be oppressed nor transgressed against; they may not be deprived of their rights, nor ill-treated in dealings.

Allah says:

(Allah does not forbid you from those who do not fight you because of religion and do not expel you from your homes – from being righteous toward them and acting justly toward them. Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly). (60:8)

The Messenger of Islam, Muhammad(peace be upon him) said: “Indeed whoever oppresses one with whom we have a pact, deprives him of his rights, burdens him with more than he can bear, or takes something from him without his consent, then I will dispute with him on the Day of Requital.” He then pointed with his finger to his chest. “Indeed whoever kills one with whom we have a pact, who is under the responsibility of Allah and His Messenger, Allah will forbid him from smelling the fragrance of Jannah (Heavenly Gardens), and indeed the fragrance of Jannah may be perceived from a distance of seventy years.” (Baihaqi)

The Messenger of Islam, Muhammad(peace be upon him) said:

“My Lord has commanded me that we should not oppress the ones whom we have a pact with (i.e. non-muslims whom reside in the lands of the muslims) and neither other them. ” (Baihaqi)
