(Continued from the last post)
But many of them were inclined to fight against Muslims and to stop Islam, and they disgraced the Muslims, and by collecting their people; they excited them to attack on Muslims and finish them. Certainly, it became necessary for the Muslims to save themselves from their attack. A general order has been given in this verse for such people.
It is commanded: Fight against those people without any hesitation who pursue to destroy Islam, because Islam desires only to deliver its message of peace to the entire people of the world. It trusts in natural freedom of the human being, demand of which is that every individual must be entitled to have a claim upon choosing his own way by using own brain.
Islam teaches the same that you should believe in one God (Allah), have faith in the Day of Judgment and stop committing those acts which are forbidden by Allah Almighty. His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) has explained all such matters. Which things have been prescribed as lawful and legal according to the commands of God Almighty, you should adopt them. And abstain from those matters which are unlawful.
Those people who want to prevent the public forcibly from hearing, they are human criminals and their way is wrong, because the Right Path is “the Religion of Truth”. Every human being is free in Belief and deeds, on the condition that the disturbance is not created from it and peace of public is not interfered. And everyone has freedom that he may cause to understand others easily those matters which are correct according to him. But he should neither compel any individual with force to accept that what he says, and nor make any other; his concordant by seducing or alluring of wealth and money.
Those people who do not admit the Religion of Truth i.e. this principle of freedom, they are guilty of human court. If they get ready to fight against you, then it is your duty that you should ruin them to the best of your abilities, so that tyranny, violence, oppression and every kind of interference are stopped. And if the Religion of Humanity, principles of which are Freedom of Conscience, Peace and Order, friendly intercourse, correction and rectification are not accepted anywhere, then fight against them, till the time they do not accept completely these principles.
Wherever you get success on such vicious people who quarrel with you due to stubbornness and enmity, and you have to establish an administrative empire, then you should manage the system on this principle that the rebellious people are kept under full pressure and they should be really obedient. After that, you are permitted to get cash from them as retaliation of their safety and they should live in your influence, so that peace and safety of the world is not interrupted.
It is clear that these commands are against those people who wish to remove human accepted independence and want to make and keep the people their obedient and slaves.
The Muslims are not allowed to fight against those people who did not announce their enmity against them, and being agreed to the principle of freedom, they got ready to live together with Muslims. Moreover, after living with peace and paying the tribute by them for their safety, the Muslims will be protectors of their wealth, lives and females. And if any other will attack over them, the Muslims will defend them.
