Jizya curriculum at Islamic University of Medina

October 17, 2010

Muslim mouthpieces deny the existence of jizya in the modern world, and Western leftists either accept those denials as “facts,” or at best ask naïve questions about whether the jizya is imposed anywhere today.

As documented many times on this blog, jizya does exist, and it is imposed by individual Muslims, by organizations, and yes, even with the approval of Islamic governments.

But even if the jizya were not imposed by any Islamic entity today, we still have an endless supply of public statements and Friday sermons in support of the theory of jizya.  It’s sitting on the shelf like a loaded gun—a parallel taxation policy ready to be instituted as soon as the general public is made sufficiently tolerant of the concept, or as soon as an Al Qaeda affiliate successfully overthrows an Arab government and fully implements Koranic tax law.

One of the rounds in the chamber of that loaded gun is a class in “Islamic Policy” at the Islamic University of Madinah—a university that was established and is funded by the Saudi royal family.

One of the stated objectives of the Islamic Policy course is to clarify “the means and ways the Islamic State gains its financial resources, and what is related to it regarding rulings of booty and tribute (jizyah).”

Course references include Abu Yusuf’s Kitab al-Kharaj, which fully endorses the use of the jizya and kharaj taxes on non-Muslims to fund all expenditures of the Islamic state.

Another University of Madinah class about “Religions & Sects” provides “instruction” on the deviant “falsehoods” of Shiites, Sufis, Christians, and even appears to include the infamous anti-Semitic forgery, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, as part of its required reading about Jews.

The Saudi royal family is known to have provided faculty positions at the University of Madinah to numerous Muslim Brotherhood activists over the years.

The jizya is based in Islamic law, has been imposed throughout the majority of Islamic history, and is only strengthened further today through Saudi-funded academic instruction.

  1. “Moderate” Al-Azhar University in Cairo instructs pupils on the jizya as well according to this republished 2004 commentary:

  2. Salam alekun waramontulahi wabarakatuhu. I am from Nigeria, i applied for next admission of islamic university but two documents of mine were not translated to Arabic since the policy of admission said that all the documents must be translated. Those two documents that were not translated were medical report and declaration of age. Please enlighten on this if they can debar me of giving admission. Shukran.


    • I suppose they can do whatever they want with admissions.


  3. What is your problem with Jizya? Its far more reasonable than all the tax you pay in the west.

    Ignorance and prejudice; a very potent mix


    • It is the jizya itself that is borne of prejudice. See “my problem” with the jizya here, here, and an exchange here.


    • Hamza, Jaziya is not a Tax, its Extortion fee !! Political correctness can introduce some creamy layer, but it does not change the fact !!!!

      Jaziya (Protection money) or death are two options that Islam puts for non-muslims… and under no definition of Modern taxation, such vile threat can be accepted as Tax… Pure and simple !!

      It might be that Political correctness allow you to mangle with words like ‘Tax’, but on clear logical and legal front, you will be counted into an extortion trader for defending and propagating into extortion system.. and no legal framework can sue me for calling you with this name !!


      • Islamic Jizyah is fully perfect as it is money paid by non-muslims similar to what muslims pay as Zakat. Since the Islamic state gives full protection to non-muslims, they have to pay their share of burden. Let’s see beyond the narrow non-Islamic definition presented in this article.
