Rights of Non-Muslims Under Islamic Governance(part 2)

17) The Right to privacy and non-interference in their affairs except that which is manifested so that it is harmful to society. The citizens of Darul Islam have a right to privacy and not to be spied upon. Islam prohibits that the government can start to spy on its own people whether Muslim or non-Muslim. This is very different from those secular States such as the USA, Britain and all others who spend billions of dollars spying on their citizens and listening to all of their conversations even in the privacy of their own homes. Islam prohibited all of that. Allah (swt) says concerning the home And Allah has made for you in your homes a place of tranquillity…” (an Nahl 16:80) A’li ibn al Husayn reported that the Prophet (saw) said It is part of the excellence of a man’s Islam to leave that which does not concern him. (MAALIK, AHMAD also in TIRMIDHI from Abu Hurayrah) and Ibn A’bbaas reported that the Prophet (saw) said If anyone listened to the talk of some people, when they do not like him to do that, then molten lead will be poured into his ears on the Day of Resurrection.” (BUKHAARI) and it is reported that the Prophet (saw) said “If someone peeps into the house of a people, without their permission, it becomes allowable for them to gouge out his eye (BUKHAARI, MUSLIM) and Abu Haytham said ‘The scribe of U’qbah bin A’mir, a companion of the Prophet (saw) narrated ‘I said to U’qbah bin A’mir ‘Some of our neighbours drink wine, and I am going t call the police and have them arrested.’ He said ‘Do not do so, but advise them and warn them.’ I said ‘I told them to stop it but they do not listen to me, I am therefore going to inform the police and have them arrested.’ U’qbah then said ‘Woe to you! Do not do that, for I heard the messenger of Allah (saw) say, If one conceals the private affairs (of others) it is like reviving a girl who has been buried alive, from her grave.(ABU DAWOOD, IBN HIBBAAN, AL HAAKIM, NASAA’I)


18) The Right to the Deeya [Blood Money of Compensation] in case of injury through negligence, manslaughter or murder. Allah (swt) says And if he comes from a people between whom you have a covenant, then the blood-money must be paid unto his people and a believing slave must be set free (an Nisaa’ 4:92) and Ibn A’bbaas reported that the Prophet (saw) said If anyone is killed in error, or by throwing with a stone, or with a slash or with a stick then the compensation for accidental death is due...” (ABU DAWOOD, NASAA’I, IBN MAAJAH) The opinion of Imaam Abu Haneefah, Imaam Sufyaan ath-Thawri and others among the Tabi’een [the generation after the companions of the Prophet] is that the blood-money of the non-Muslim is the same as the Muslim and this has also been attributed to Ibn Masoo’d, U’mar and U’thmaan among the sahaabah [campanions of the Prophet]. The second view is that the blood-money of the Non-Muslim is one half that of the Muslim and this was the view of Imaam Maalik and of U’mar ibn A’bdul A’zeez. Another view is that the deeya of the non-Muslim is one third of that of the Muslim and this was the view of Imaam ash-Shafi’i and also attributed to U’mar ibn al Khattaab. Let us contrast this with USA, Russia, Israel, Britain and India who regularly bomb, murder and maim thousands of people men, women and children. Instead of compensating them or admitting their murderous hate-filled intentions you hear their government officials say to the nature of ‘We remember our civilians on 9/11’! Amazing that their memories conveniently forget that which preceded that event such as the first Invasion of Iraq, the ten year bombing of Iraq, the systematic sanction-murder of half a million Iraqi children, the first bombing of Afghanistan, the bombing of Libya, the American and Israeli occupation of Lebanon, the shooting down of an Iranian airliner, the constant funding and arming of Israel to murder thousands of Muslim civilians, the arms embargo on Bosnian Muslims so they could not defend themselves from mass murder, rape and torture. They also choose to forget 500 years of colonization (i.e. murder, rape, plunder) which they continue today by supporting every murderous tyrant regime in the Muslim world while stealing the resources.

19) The Right of Compensation and Judicial reproach in case of medical mal-practice. A’mr bin Shua’yb reported on his fathers authority rom his grandfather that the Prophet (saw) said Anyone who practices medicine when he is not known as a practicioner and kills a life or inflicts bodily harm will be held responsible.” (DARAQUTNI graded ‘saheeh’ by AL HAAKIM also similar in ABU DAWOOD & NASAA’I. Ibn Hajr al Asqalaani mentioned that its mursal version is stronger than its mawsool version)

20) Right of Movement and Travel except the encroachment onto privately owned property or that which is a matter of restriction for believers. Allah (swt) says He it is who created for you all that is on earth… (al Baqarah 2:30) and And Allah has made for you out that which He has created shades and has made for you places of refuge in the mountains...” (an Nahl 16:81) and “Say: ‘Travel through the earth and see how Allah did originate creation: so will Allah produce a later creation: for Allah has power over all things.” (al A’nkaboot 29:20) and And (He created) Horses, mules and donkeys for you to ride and as an adornment… (an Nahl 16:8) and And Allah has spread out the earth for you, so that you may make your way through its spacious paths.” (Nooh 71:19-20) In Britain, USA and the tyrannical Muslim world you can not walk anywhere without being asked by the police ‘Who are you, what are you doing, where are you going?’ On top of that, every country is now a prison, no escape without showing a plethora of documents and having paid your escape fees. Travel is no longer a human right but a permission selectively granted by the oppressive prison-State.


21) Right of linguistic, literal and artistic expression except that which contradicts the rights of society and contradicts the shariah law such as slander, blasphemy etc. Allah (swt) says And among his signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the difference of your languages and colours. Verily in that are indeed signs for those who reflect. (ar Room 30:22)

andThe Most Merciful [Ar Rahmaan] has taught the Quran. He created man. He taught him eloquent speech. (ar Rahmaan 55:1-4) and Have We not made for him a pair of eyes, and a tongue and a pair of lips?” (al Balad 90:8-9) and Ibn Masoo’d reported that the Prophet (saw) said Allah is Beautiful and he loves that which is beautiful (MUSLIM) Art in the Americas is taking the portrayal of lesbianism, pornography and dead sheep, in the Muslim world the art is to make gigantic idols of the tyrant leaders. In the USA, Britain and France if you speak out against the crimes of the State you are imprisoned and called a terrorist but if you insult a prophet or mock a religion you are termed ‘progressive’. In the tyrannical east, if you speak out against the State you disappear without a trace.


22) The Right not to be oppressed by any government official or Muslim citizen. Oppression in the shari’ah means the abuse or hindrance to any rights which the Divine texts guarantee to any particular person whether a husaband, wife, parents, children, relatives, neighbours, Muslim or non-Muslim. Allah (swt) says And incline not towards those who oppress lest the Fire should touch you and you have no protectors other than Allah and nor would you then be helped. (Hood 11:113) Ibn U’mar reported that the Prophet (saw) said “Oppression will turn into darkness on the Day of Resurrection” (BUKHAARI, MUSLIM) and Abu Dharr reported that the Prophet (saw) said that Allah ta’Ala said O My slaves, I have made oppression unlawful for Myself and I have made it unlawful among you, so do not oppress one another. (MUSLIM) Oppression is the norm in the whole world and is getting worse.


23) Right not to be exposed to public indecency such as nudity, pornography, crude speech, prostitution and its like. Abu Darda’ reported that the Prophet (saw) said “!Allah hates the profligate and the obscene [faahish]” (TIRMIDHI who graded it ‘saheeh’)

and Allah (swt) says “O children of Adam Take your adornment and eat and drink but waste not by extravagance, verily He likes not the musrifoon (al A’raaf 7:31)

and O Children of Adam! We have bestowed raiment upon you to cover yourselves and as an adornment and the raiment of righteousness that is better. Such are among the Signs of Allah.” (al A’raaf 7:26) and “O Children of Adam! Let not Shaytaan [Satan] deceive you as he deceived your parents out of Paradise stripping them of their clothes, to show them their private parts… (al A’raaf 7:27) Compare these Islamic rights which honour women and protect the dignity and humanity of society with the global secular way of life propagated by regimes which have reduced humanity to animals. Societies which have reduced women to an advertising tool and indeed reduced women to a commodity, to be sold, used and discarded. Look to how women can not travel anywhere without fear of rape or assault due to the public promoting her only through means of nudity, pornography, prostitution and sexual promiscuity. Under the falsehood of ‘liberation’ women have been reduced to a slave of every selfish and abusive man.


24) Right to experience the Mercy of Islam in the just dealings with the Muslim citizens. Jabir bin A’bdullah reported that the Prophet (saw) said “Allah is not merciful to him who is not merciful to people” (BUKHAARI, MUSLIM) and Abdullah ibn A’mr said that the Prophet (saw) said “The Merciful One shows mercy to those who are merciful (to others). So show mercy to whatever is on earth, then He who is in heaven will show mercy to you. (ABU DAWOOD, TIRMIDHI)


25) The Right not to suffer environmental destruction, pollution and extravagant wastage. It is prohibited for Muslims to damage the environment in anyway without a necessity. Allah (swt) says And the stars and the trees both prostrate themselves, and the heaven He has raised high, and He has set up the balance, in order that you may not transgress the balance, and observe the weight with equity and do not make the balance deficient, and the earth he has laid down for the creatures (ar Rahmaan 55:6-10)

and …But be not extravagant. Verily He loves not the musrifeen (extravagant and wasteful).” (al Ana’m 6:141)

and Corruption has appeared on the land and sea because of what men have earned with their own hands, that He (Allah) may make them taste a part of that which they have done, in order that they may return (ar Room 30:41)

and Do no mischief on the earth after it has been set in order, but call on Him in fear and hope for the Mercy of Allah is near to those who do good (al A’raaf 7:59)

and Abu Hurayrah reported that Rasool Allah (saw) said Imaan has sixty-odd or seventy-odd branches, the highest and best of which is to affirm laa ilaaha ill Allah and the lowest of which is to remove something harmful from the road, hayaa [modesty] is also part of imaan (BUKHAARI, MUSLIM)

and Abu Hurayrah reported that the Prophet (saw) saidWhile a man was walking along he came across a thorny branch on the road and he removed it. Allah praised him for that and forgave him. (BUKHAARI) Compare the Islamic rules of conservation with the corrupt secular leaders who continue to receive funds to turn a blind eye to the environmental destruction caused by the usurping multi-national corporations.
