War and peace in Islam, and Jihad, as explained by a Muslim professor – Majid Khadduri; Islamic world view

islamicsThe social media is full of such pictures showing Muslims protesting by holding such banners. But main stream media, sunk in political correctness and politics of multicultural and secularism, and never wanting to hurt the hyper sensitive Muslims,   has no problem with such pictures. And the same media excoriates those who speak against Islamic Supremacism and show pictures like the above one, and labels them as Islamophobes.

The ultimate objective of Islam and Muslims is to bring the entire world under Islamic rule (Sharia law), where in Muslims are superior and Non-Muslims are designated as second rate humans. The efforts put up Muslims to realize this ultimate Islamic objective is Jihad.

Most Hindus have difficulty in believing that Islamic holy scriptures exhort Muslims to wage Jihad against Non-Muslims, even when I quote verses from  Koran and show hadith (sayings and deeds) as proof. They still wanted to believe Islam preaches harmony and mutual respect.

Just few days back pamphlets of PFI – Popular Front of India, Islam based political party – ( media promotes this as a political party seeking unity of Muslims and Dalits) seized by Kerala police say that making Kerala and India an Islamic state should be the aim of Muslims.

A picture floating on facebook, downloaded by me from a Muslim’s page, is this (SIO stands for Students Islamic Organization):

Yet again I present another Muslim scholar, a civilian and who lived in US, a professor on Islamic teachings, who wrote a book under the title ‘The war and peace in Islamic law’. This book was published in the year 1955. Some excerpts from this book:

“The state which is regarded as the instrument for universalizing a certain religion must perforce be an ever expanding state. The Islamic state, whose principal function was to put God’s law into practice, sought to establish Islam as the dominant reigning ideology over the entire world. It refused to recognize the coexistence of non-Muslim communities, except perhaps as subordinate entities, because by its very nature a universal state tolerates the existence of no other state than itself. Although it was not a consciously formulated policy, Muhammad’s early successors, after Islam became supreme in Arabia, were determined to embark on a ceaseless war of conquest in the name of Islam. The jihad was therefore employed as an instrument for both the universalization of religion and the establishment of an imperial world state. ” (Page 51)

“The world accordingly was sharply divided in Muslim law in to the Dar al-Islam (abode or territory of Islam) and Dar al-Harb (abode or territory of war). These terms may be rendered in less poetic words as the “World of Islam” and the “World of war”. The first corresponded to the territory under the Muslim rule. Its inhabitants were Muslims, by birth or conversion, and the communities of the tolerated religions (Dhimmis) who preferred to hold fast to their own cult at the price of paying Jizya (poll tax). The Muslims enjoyed the full rights of citizenship; the subjects of the tolerated religions enjoyed only partial rights, and submitted to Muslim rule in accordance with special charters regulating their relationship with Muslims. The dar al Harb consisted of all the states and communities outside the world of Islam. Its inhabitants were often called infidels, or, better, unbelievers.”

“On the assumption that the ultimate aim of Islam was worldwide, Dar al Islam was always, in theory, at war with the Dar al Harb. The Muslims were required to preach Islam by persuasion, and the caliph or his commanders in the field to offer Islam as an alternative to paying poll tax or fighting; but the Islamic state was under legal obligation to enforce Islamic law and to recognize no authority other than its own, superseding other authorities even when Non-Muslim communities willingly accepted the faith of Islam without fighting. Failure by Non-Muslims to accept Islam or pay poll tax made it incumbent upon the Muslim state to declare a Jihad (commonly called ‘holy war’) upon the recalcitrant individuals and communities.”

“Thus the Jihad, reflecting the normal war relations existing between Muslims and Non-Muslims, was the state’s instrument for transforming Dar al-Harb in to Dar al- Islam.” (above 3 paragraphs are from pages 52-53)

“Thus the jihad may be regarded as Islam’s instrument or carrying out its ultimate objective by turning all people into believers, if not in the prophethood of Muhammad (as in the case of the dhimmis), at least in the belief in God. The Prophet Muhammad is reported to have declared “some of my people will continue to fight victoriously for the sake of the truth until the last one of them will combat the anti-Christ.” Until that moment is reached the jihad, in one form or another, will remain as a permanent obligation upon the entire Muslim community. It follows that the existence of a dar al-harb is ultimately outlawed under the Islamic jural order; that the dar al-Islam is permanently under jihad obligation until the dar al-harb is reduced to non-existence; and that any community which prefers to remain non-Islamic — in the status of a tolerated religious community accepting certain disabilities — must submit to Islamic rule and reside in the dar al-Islam or be bound as clients to the Muslim community.” (Page 64)

Note:  As he explains Islam, fascism is crystal clear here, he absolves Prophet Mohammad of formulating such policy. It is a lie. Koran is clear on this. Hadith are clear on this. Letters written by Prophet Mohammad to various kings serve as an additional proof that Islam is fascist.

Interestingly, Khadduri tells Muslims that since Muslims have no hope of defeating powerful West in war, they have to give up these beliefs, and accept and live under international law as he writes in pages 295-296:

The Muslim states, however, are quite aware that at the present it is not possible to revive the traditional religious approach to foreign affairs, nor is it in their interests to do so, as the circumstances permitting the association of religion in the relations among nations have radically changed….the jihad [has] become an obsolete weapon…Islam has at last accepted, after a long period of tension and friction with Christendom, its integration into a world order which, although originating in western Europe, now tends to encompass the entire world.

Jihad as obsolete ? But Koran is valid for eternity and nothing in Koran can be changed; Koran says this and Muslims say this all the time and proud of too.

Robert Spencer writes on this:

“Note that Khadduri doesn’t say that Islamic sects and schools have rejected jihad and reformed the doctrines that mandated Islamic supremacism. Rather, he says that these doctrines were set aside in practice. And now they are being taken up again, fifty years after Khadduri was ready to pronounce them dead.”
