Refraining From Harming One Who Says: La ilaaha illallaah

 

It was narrated from Abu Hurairah [radiAllahu anhu] that the Messenger of Allah [sallallahu alaihi wasallam] said:

“I have been commanded to fight the people until they say: La ilaaha illallaah. If they say it, then their blood and wealth are protected from me, except for a right that is due from it, and their reckoning will be with Allah” 

[Sunan Ibn Majah, vol. 5, no. 3927, sahih]

 

Comments:

 

a] Everyone who pronounces the fundamental word of Islam (la ilaaha illallaah Muhammad ur rasoolullah), all the rulings of Islam applies to him in this world. If he does not have faith in his hearf he will be punished in the Hereafter.

 

b] ‘Blood and wealth are protected’ means that they are not killed by waging war against them, and their property is not taken as booty or Fai’ (ie. booty gained without fighting).

 

c] ‘Except for a right’ means punishing them for their crimes such as cutting off the hand of a thief, and flogging those who accuse chaste women of adultery, killing someone as punishment for murdering an innocent person etc. ‘Except for a right’ also means forcing them to give Zakat and paying the obligatory expenses, collecting the blood money for an intentional murder with the agreement of the heirs of the one who is killed, and demanding the blood money from the murderer or his tribe in an accidental killing, with the agreement of the heirs of the one who is killed, etc.
