An Nawawi 40 Hadiths (8)

On the authority of the son of Omar[1] narrated that the Messenger of Allah(sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

"I have been ordered to fight[2] against people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammed is the Messenger of Allah and until they perform the prayers and pay the Zakat[3], and if they do so they will have gained protection from me for their lives[4] and property, unless [they do acts that are punishable] in accordance with Islam, and their reckoning will be with Allah the Almighty."

[1] See note [1] to Hadith 2. / [2] Islam advocates that conversion be by conviction. The Holy Qur'an says: "No compulsion in religion", and in another passage the Almigty says: "Call unto the way of thy Lord with wisdom and fair exhortation, and reason with them in the better way". The waging of war is enjoined against certain categories of persons such as those who attack a Muslim country, those who prevent the preaching and spread of Islam by peaceful means, and apostates. / [3] See note [2] to Hadith 2. / [4] Lit. "their blood".
