|A dhimmi paying jizyah|
Gisele Littman, aka, Bat Ye’or (Hebrew meaning “daughter of the Nile”) is known for her books about history of religious minorities in the Muslim world. I am reading her book, The Dhimmi – Jews and Christians under Islam (1985) where she describes dhimmitude as the "specific social condition that resulted from jihad," and as the "state of fear and insecurity of infidels who are required to accept a condition of humiliation.” It is a must read for us so that we know what our life will be like once Islam reaches its goal of dominating the world.
I’m only halfway through the 400+ page book, but already by page 204 feel the need to tell you what life is like under Islam after jihad, just in case you haven’t read about the plight of Christians and Yazidis in Iraq and Syria today. (The Jews fled from those lands long ago, walking to Zion…that is, Israel.)
Quotes from The Dhimmi:
P. 173, from Ibn Taymiyya (d. 1328) – In principle, Allah has created the things of this world only in order that they may contribute to serving Him, since He created man only in order to be ministered to. Consequently, the infidels (you and me) forfeit their persons and belongings which they do not use in Allah’s service to the faithful believers who serve Allah and unto whom Allah restitutes what is theirs: thus is restored to a man the inheritance of which he was deprived, even if he had never before gained possession.
P. 179, from Mawardi (d. 1058) – Infidels must neither attack nor deform the Holy Book (Koran), nor accuse the Prophet of falsehood nor quote him with contempt, nor speak of the Muslim faith in order to denigrate or question it, nor approach a Muslim woman with a view of having illegal relations or marriage, nor entice a Muslim from his faith, nor harm him or his belongings, nor aid enemies or lodge any of their spies.
|Hindus forced to suffer humiliation |
in the paying of Jizyah tax
Furthermore, these following six points are recommended for the humiliation of infidels living in the superior Muslim society: changing their outward attire by the wearing of a distinctive sign (ghiyar) and a special belt (zunnar); prohibiting the construction of buildings higher than those of Muslims. They should be only of equal height, or lower; prohibiting them from causing offence to Muslims by the ringing of their bells (nakus), the reading of their books and their pretensions concerning Uzayr (Ezra) and the Messiah; prohibiting them from drinking wine in public or displaying either crosses or pigs; the obligation for them to conduct their funerals in secret without crying or lamenting; prohibiting them from riding horses, be they thoroughbreds or crossbreeds, though leaving them the use of mules and donkeys.
P. 186, from the Quadi, Ahmed b. Talib (9th century) – The dhimmis were compelled to wear upon their shoulder a patch of white cloth (riqa’) that bore the image of an ape (for the Jews) and a pig (for the Christians), and to nail onto their doors a board bearing the sign of a monkey.
P. 188, from the Edict of Caliph al-Amir bi-Ahkam Illah (1101-1130) – The degradation of the infidels in this world before the life to come – where is their lot – is considered an act of piety and the imposition of their poll tax (jizya) until they pay the tribute (to Muslims) out of hand and have been humbles (Koran 9:29) is a divinely ordained obligation…The poll tax must be exacted from him directly in order to vilify and humiliate him, so that Islam and its people may be exalted and the race of the infidels brought low.
P. 192 from Ibn al-Fuwati (d. 1323) – According to Islamic law, when the poll tax (jizya) is to be paid, the person (infidel-dhimmi) who delivers the sum must be standing and he (Muslim) who receives it must be seated. The former places it in the other’s hand so that the Muslim receives it in the palm of his hand, the Muslim’s hand being above that of the dhimmi below. The latter then stretches forth his beard and the Muslim strikes him on the cheek with the words” “Pay the dues of Allah, O enemy of Allah, O infidel.”
P. 196-198 from Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya (thirteenth century) – Verily, Allah has annulled the sounding of the Christian bell and the Jewish (ram’s) horn and has replaced them with the call of monotheism and devotion. He has raised the sound of the word Islam as a sign of the true vocation so as to throw into obscurity the call of the infidel, and he has replaced the bell with the Muslim call to prayer…just as he has replaced the Satanic scriptures (the Bible, i.e., the Old and New Testaments of Jews and Christians) with the Koran.
…The turban is the crown of the Arabs. Turbans are not the attire of the children of Israel but of that of the Arabs. It is forbidden for a dhimmi to don a turban, for he must have no honor in the land of Islam and therefore it is not his attire.
…Jihad is obligatory until the word of Allah reign supreme, and until all are of the religion of Allah (Islam), until the religion of Allah triumphs over all the regions and until they pay the poll tax while in a state of inferiority.
And finally, P. 201 from al-Maghili (d. 1504), Ahkam ahl al-Dhimma – On the day of payment they shall be assembled in a public place like the sug. They should be standing there waiting in the lowest and dirtiest place. The acting officials representing the (Islamic) Law shall be placed above them…the object being to degrade them...Then they shall be dragged one by one (to the official responsible) for the exacting of payment. When paying, the dhimmi will receive a blow and be thrust aside. This is the way that the friends of the Lord (Allah) of the first and last generations will act toward their infidel enemies, for might belongs to Allah, to His Prophet (Muhammad) and to the believers (all Muslims).
|Hillary's White House|
That’s about it for the first half of Bat Ye’or’s The Dhimmi and a peek into our future if people – Angela Merkel, Germany, France, Belgium, England, Sweden, Finland, (Europe in general), America, Obama, Hillary, Democrats – refuse to acknowledge that Islam is not a religion of peace, but a destructive religion founded by Muhammad’s Gabriel who was Satan. So…a religion founded by the devil to thwart God’s redemptive plan for mankind.
