Jezia (Jizya) is the extra tax imposed on non-Muslims (Dhimmis) who live under Muslim rule according to the Qur’an and Hadith. It is in effect a discrimination tax, you would NEVER see people justify it these days. All those who troll us and are ready to justify it, think carefully before you justify it.
“Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold forbidden that which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jezia with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” Quran 9:29
“I call you to God and to Islam. If you respond to the call, then you are Muslims: You obtain the benefits they enjoy and take up the responsibilities they bear. If you refuse, then you must pay the jizyah. If you refuse the jizyah, I will bring against you tribes of people who are more eager for death than you are for life. We will then fight you until God decides between us and you.” (Al Tabari, Volume XI)
Khalid bin Al-Waheed (Muslim General, 632AD)
Summon the people to God; those who respond to your call, accept it from them, but those who refuse must pay the poll tax out of humiliation and lowliness. If they refuse this, it is the sword without leniency. Fear God with regard to what you have been entrusted. (Al Tabari, Volume XII)
Umar ibn al-Khattab during the conquest of al-Basrah (636 CE)
There are some who will say, it is just like taxation in civilised countries. We pay similar tax called “Zakat”. Zakat is 5% of profit you make, it is required (wajeb). If you don’t pay it, your punishment is with Allah, same as failing to pray. Jezia is penalty, it is not linked to income, Umar set the bar as one gold coin per person. If you do not pay it, the person could be killed, boys enslaved, women and girls taken as women sex slaves (Melk Alyamen). Did you spot the difference?
