Sharia law makes Islam much more than a religion. Its broad doctrine and application to non-Muslims make Islam a political entity, a government with goals of global dominion.

Sunni Islam and Shia Islam both believe in a global ruler called caliph who will some day govern the world using Sharia law.

This report provides:

  • Definition of Sharia law and relationship to Muslim faith.
  • Countries governed by Sharia.

Definition of Sharia law and relationship to Muslim faith.

Muslim is defined as “a worshipper of Islam.”   Islam is a religion articulated by the Qur‘an. Sharia is the Islamic law which governs every aspect of a Muslims life. The instruction in the Quran and the examples set by the Islamic prophet Muhammad are the two main sources of inspiration for Islamic Sharia law.


According to the Encyclopedia of Islam "Within Muslim discourse, sharia designates the rules and regulations governing the lives of Muslims, derived in principle from the Kuran and hadith. In this sense, the word is closely associated with fiḳh [q.v.], which signifies academic discussion of divine law."

Sharia governs secular law, including crime, politics and economics as well as prescribing religious conduct and ritual.  Sharia is the equivalent of federal and state statues combined with religious doctrine.  In countries where Sharia is the political code it rules over the lives of Muslims and non-Muslims alike.  Islamic judges interpret Sharia in countries and territories where it has official government status.  Several countries are governed entirely by Islamic Sharia law.  These countries will be described in the next section.      

The multi-governing aspects of Sharia mean that Islam is much more than a religion.  Islam is also a political entity with governmental code set by Sharia.  Its broad doctrine and application to non-Muslims make Islam a political entity, a government with goals of global dominion.

Countries governed by Sharia.

The first system of government established in Islam and represented the leader's unity of the Muslim Ummah community was called Caliphate. Caliphate is the worldwide dominion by an Islamic sort of emperor called Caliph who is charged with enforcing Sharia law on all earthly inhabitants. Sunni Islam and Shia Islam both believe in a global ruler called caliph who will some day govern the world using Sharia law.


Sharia is the governing law or primary legislative doctrine in many countries including:  Aceh, Afghanistan, Algeria, Bangladesh, Chechnya, Egypt, Gambia, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Malaysia, Mauritania, Morocco, Nigeria, Oman, Qatar, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, West Java and Yemen.

LONDON Dailymail.co.uk July 28, 2011 “Islamic extremists have launched a poster campaign across the UK proclaiming areas where Sharia law enforcement zones have been set up.”

Communities have been bombarded with the posters, which read: ‘You are entering a Sharia-controlled zone – Islamic rules enforced.’ The bright yellow messages daubed on bus stops and street lamps have already been seen across certain boroughs in London and order that in the ‘zone’ there should be ‘no gambling’, ‘no music or concerts’, ‘no porn or prostitution’, ‘no drugs or smoking’ and ‘no alcohol’.

Hate preacher Anjem Choudary has claimed responsibility for the scheme, saying he plans to flood specific Muslim and non-Muslim communities around the UK and ‘put the seeds down for an Islamic Emirate in the long term’. In the past week, dozens of streets in the London boroughs of Waltham Forest, Tower Hamlets and Newham have been targeted, raising fears that local residents may be intimidated or threatened for flouting ‘Islamic rules’.

Choudary, who runs the banned militant group Islam4UK, warned: ‘We now have hundreds if not thousands of people up and down the country willing to go out and patrol the streets for us and a print run of between 10,000 and 50,000 stickers ready for distribution.'


EGYPT This picture, taken at a late 2011 protest in Egypt, has been making the rounds on various Arabic websites. Note the rope around the women, herding them like camels; note the man to the right holding the leash, walking them. This is a common “precautionary measure” to keep women from mixing with men during protests.

Egypt converted their public policy for all citizens to Sharia after the United States helped the Muslim Brotherhood organization called the Arab Spring to seize control of the country with the election of Mohammed Mursi.

Egyptian cleric Sheik Muhammad Sallah made the case for Sharia law. Appearing on Al-Hekma TV in Egypt on May 4, he said that if Egypt would simply force its citizens to live by the “Shari’a of Allah,“ it would become the ”mightiest nation in the world” and even more wealthy than Sweden.

PARIS - Friday in Paris. A hidden camera shows streets blocked by huge crowds of Muslim worshippers and enforced by a private security force.

This is all illegal in France: the public worship, the blocked streets, and the private security. But the police have been ordered not to intervene.

It shows that even though some in the French government want to get tough with Muslims and ban the burqa, other parts of the French government continue to give Islam a privileged status.

An ordinary French citizen who has been watching the Islamization of Paris decided that the world needed to see what was happening to his city. He used a hidden camera to start posting videos on YouTube. His life has been threatened and so he uses the alias of "Maxime Lepante.


Muslim group targets Belgium for Islamic Sharia control. Abu Imran leader of the Islamic group Sharia4Belgium says “We need to be clear there is no difference between Islam and Sharia. Democracy is the opposite of Islam. We believe that Allah makes the laws. We believe that Sharia will be implemented world wide. And a Muslim who says he does not believe in Sharia he is not a Muslim.” Muslims account for twenty five percent of the population of Belgium’s capital Brussels and their population is projected to exceed fifty percent by 2030.

RUSSIA Chechnya broke away from Russia in 1991 and continues to fight for independence.  Chechnya battles against Russian federal control with Sharia law as its most likely replacement.  Moscow has the largest Muslim population in Europe, with four mosques in the Russian capital city serving some two million people.  Russia is Iran’s strongest ally.

Provisions of Sharia that conflict with American laws.

Sharia law advocates many practices that conflict with the rights afforded under the United States Constitution and/or violate state and federal law including:  

  • Perjury, Muslims are permitted and prompted to lie (taqiyya) to non-Muslims.  See Note 1.
  • Discrimination, Muslims are permitted and compelled to discriminate against non-Muslims.  See Note 2.
  • Abolition of adoption rights otherwise granted under American laws.  Islam prohibits adopting children.  See Note 3.
  • Abolition of Wills, Inheritance Instruments and Last Testaments established under American laws.  See Note 4.
  • Abolition of certain interest income otherwise specified in loan, mortgage and other borrowing documents.  See Note 5.
  • Diminished rights of women in court.  It takes the testimony of two women to equal one man in Sharia court.  See Note 6.
  • Polygamy, Muslim men may marry up to four wives.  Muhammad married thirteen women in violation of the Qur'an which he inspired his prophets to write.  See Note 7.
  • Pedophilia, Muslim men can marry girls as young as 14.  However, Muhammad took a wife named Ayesha that was six years old.  See Note 8.
  • Muslim husbands are given the right to beat their wives as a form of discipline.  See Note 9.
  • Killing, torture, imprisonment and/or execution of blasphemers, infidels, Islamist apostates and non-believers.   See Note 10.
  • Vicious jihad against non-Muslims to establish Islam's rule worldwide.  Muslims who cannot take on physical jihad must support it with their money.  See Note 11.
  Sharia violence espoused in American mosques.

Study finds that Sharia minded Imams recommended studying violence-positive texts in 84.5% of United States mosques.

The study was conducted by Dr. Mordechai Kedar and David Yerushalmi, Esq. who are highly regarded experts on Sharia.  David Yerushalmi, Esq. who runs the American Freedom Law Center with Robert J. Muise, Esq. is called The Man Behind the Anti-Shariah Movement ... by the New York TimesDr. Mordechai Kedar of Bar-Ilan University is an academic expert on the Israeli Arab population.  

Survey abstract:  A random survey of 100 representative mosques in the U.S. was conducted to measure the correlation between Sharia adherence and dogma calling for violence against non-believers.  Of the 100 mosques surveyed, 51% had texts on site rated as severely advocating violence; 30% had texts rated as moderately advocating violence; and 19% had no violent texts at all.  Mosques that presented as Sharia adherent were more likely to feature violence-positive texts on site than were their non-Sharia-adherent counterparts.  In 84.5% of the mosques, the imam recommended studying violence-positive texts.  The leadership at Sharia-adherent mosques was more likely to recommend that a worshipper study violence-positive texts than leadership at non-Sharia-adherent mosques.  Fifty-eight percent of the mosques invited guest imams known to promote violent jihad.  The leadership of mosques that featured violence-positive literature was more likely to invite guest imams who were known to promote violent jihad than was the leadership of mosques that did not feature violence-positive literature on mosque premises.  Read more at Terrorismanalysts.com

Sharia in America.

If anyone doubts that Muslims have a strong interest in and plans for Islamizing America with Sharia all they have to do is consider the efforts of Islamic organizations in the United States.


Several Muslim Brotherhood front organizations including the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Islamic Circle of North America (ISNA) are vigorously fighting bills in congress and twenty state legislatures that would prohibit courts from considering provisions of foreign laws including Sharia if they are inconsistent with the United States and state constitutions.

  CAIR, whose former name was “The Islamic Association of Palestine” issued this March 1, 2012 PRNewswire-USNewswire report: “The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today released a community toolkit designed to assist those seeking to preserve America's ideal of religious pluralism in the face of unconstitutional "anti-Sharia" bills that have been introduced in more than 20 states nationwide.”

The Islamic Circle of North America waged a billboard campaign in Kansas aimed at opposing legislation that would prohibit Kansas courts from considering Sharia law. Thankfully the Kansas Legislature approved the bill which was signed into law by Governor Sam Brownback. The Islamic Circle of North America web site has not updated their map below to report that Kansas passed the legislation.


The Islamic Circle of North America reports legislation to prohibit state courts from considering foreign laws including Islamic Sharia:

• Failed in 14 states: Arkansas, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, Texas, South Carolina, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming.

• Passed in 4 states: Arizona, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Tennessee.

• Stalled in 5 states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, New Hampshire, New Jersey.

The best way to make sure that domestic law enforcement agencies do not detect the multitude of deviations from American law influenced by Sharia is to pressure law enforcement to stop looking at Muslims.

Islamists succeeded in influencing the Obama administration’s FBI to scrub 1,000 counter terrorism presentations and curricula on Islam.

FBI Director Mueller secretly met on February 8, 2012 at FBI headquarters with a coalition of groups including various Islamist and militant Arabic groups who in the past have defended Hamas and Hizballah and have also issued blatantly anti-Semitic statements.

At this meeting, the FBI revealed that it had removed more than 1000 presentations and curricula on Islam from FBI offices around the country that was deemed "offensive." The FBI did not reveal what criteria was used to determine why material was considered "offensive" but knowledgeable law enforcement sources have told the IPT that it was these radical groups who made that determination. Moreover, numerous FBI agents have confirmed that from now on, FBI headquarters has banned all FBI offices from inviting any counter-terrorist specialists who are considered "anti-Islam" by Muslim Brotherhood front groups.

Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and fights government corruption, has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. Federal Bureau of Investigation and U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:12-cv-01183)) against the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) seeking access to records detailing a February 2012 meeting between FBI Director Robert Mueller and Muslim organizations. Judicial Watch is also investigating the FBI’s subsequent controversial decision to purge the agency’s training curricula of material deemed “offensive” to Muslims.


The New York Times empowered the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) demand that the New York Police Department (NYPD) stop counter terrorist surveillance involving mosques and the Muslim Students’ Association.

The Muslim Students' Association is "the mother ship of all the Muslim Brotherhood front groups" according to Jihadwatch.org.  

Here is the Muslim Students' Association pledge.  "Allah is my lord.  Islam is my life.  The Koran is my guide.  The Sunna is my practice.  Jihad is my spirit.  Righteousness is my character.  Paradise is my goal.  I enjoin what is right.  I forbid what is wrong.  I will fight against oppression.  And I will die to establish Islam."

USA Today reports New York Police Department “spokesman Paul Browne provided a list of 12 people arrested or convicted on terrorism charges in the United States and abroad who had once been members of Muslim student associations, which the NYPD referred to as MSAs.”

  Islamists (CAIR) demand that anti-terrorist expert be barred from training law enforcement officers.   The Council on American Islamic Relations wrote a letter calling on the Florida Department on Law Enforcement and other officials to stop allowing counter terrorist expert Sam Kharoba from training their officers.

Judicial board rebukes Pennsylvania Judge Mark Martin for ruling that it was ok for a Muslim immigrant to physically attack and choke an American citizen because the Muslim was unaware that Sharia law did not apply in Pennsylvania. Judge Martin’s flawed ruling underscores the legal calamity that public officials are inflicting on the rights afforded citizens under the United States Constitution by recognizing Sharia law.



Breitbart.com reports "Obama Administration Paves the Way for Sharia Law." There is strong and open evidence of the Obama administration collaborating with Islamist activists to ensure the path toward sharia law is accelerated. In October 2011, at George Washington University, there was a meeting between DOJ officials and Islamist advocates against free speech who lobbied for: Cutbacks in U.S. anti-terror training; Limits on the power of terrorism investigators; Changes in agent training manuals; and a legal declaration that criticism of Islam in the United States should be considered racial discrimination.

What should our government’s response be to Sharia?

Elected officials across America are sworn in to office by vowing “I, do solemnly swear that I will support, protect, and defend the Constitution and Government of the United States and of the State.”  Most citizens would interpret that oath to mean that their elected officials in government should oppose the avocation of ideas that are antithetical to the constitution and the liberties it guarantees.    

Many of the provisions of Sharia law are in conflict with the rights afforded under the United States Constitution.  Some of the practices advocated by Sharia violate state law.

It is just as much a violation of the oath of office for elected officials to embrace the Communist Manifesto as it is for them to accept provisions of Sharia law that conflict with our constitution.  And it would be just a treasonous to allow the Communist Party of the USA (CPUSA) to change American public policy as it would be to allow the Council on American Islamic Relations, Islamic Society of North America, Muslim Student Association or other Muslim Brotherhood front organizations in American to change this country’s constitutional liberties and rights to comply with Sharia.  

The most common way that Sharia is birthed into a society is not by enactment from elected officials but by elected officials ignoring the Islamic laws’ application by practicing Muslims within their jurisdiction.  The Tampa Police Department’s ignoring the honor killing of Fatima Abdallah is one example.  The Hillsborough County School Board ignoring CAIR’s teaching students in Tampa about Sharia law is another example.  As the population of Muslims grow within that society and their political influence becomes stronger application of Sharia moves from acceptance by ignorance to adoption by their elected officials.

Florida Family Association is opposing Sharia in  America by:

  • Supporting legislation that prohibits courts from recognizing foreign laws including Islamic Sharia law.
  • Confronting public officials who violate their oath of office by embracing provisions of Sharia law that are inconsistent with American laws.
  • Exposing corporations that embrace or facilitate groups like CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) who support Sharia in America.


Note 2012 Florida Legislative Session.  The Application of Foreign Law in Certain Cases legislation would have passed the 2012 Florida Legislature were it not for the senate president playing personal favorites with certain bills.  The House of Representatives voted 92-24 to approve HB 1209.   SB 1360 passed all committees but Florida Senate President Mike Haridopolos’ personal politics prevented the bill from being voted on by the full Florida Senate.  Thankfully, Senator Don Gaetz, who was a co-sponsor of SB 1360, will be the next Florida Senate President. Senator Gaetz’s well known intellectual and objective team player leadership skills along with co-sponsorship of SB 1360 should give this legislation a better chance of passage in the next Florida Legislative Session which begins in January 2013.

Florida Family Association has launched two email campaigns to thank the following Florida Legislators who sponsored HB 1209 and SB 1360 before we get too far away from the close of the 2012 session:  Senator Allan Hays, Senator Greg Evers, Senator Don Gaetz, Representative Janet Adkins, Representative Larry Ahern, Representative Ben Albritton, Representative Dennis Baxley, Representative Jim Boyd, Representative Broxson, Representative Matt Caldwell, Representative Daphne Campbell, Representative Richard Corcoran, Representative Fred Costello, Representative Brad Drake, Representative Clay Ford, Representative Matt Gaetz, Representative Jim Grant, Representative Bill Hager, Representative Gail Harrell, Representative Shawn Harrison, Representative Mike Horner, Representative Clay Ingram, Representative Paige Kreegel, Representative Charles McBurney, Representative Ray Pilon, Representative Elizabeth Porter, Representative Franklin Sands, Representative Jimmie Smith, Representative Kelli Stargel, Representative Greg Steube, Representative John Tobia, Representative Charles Van Zant, Representative Mike Weinstein and Representative Trudi Williams.

Sharia law footnotes.

Note 1:   Perjury, Muslims are permitted and prompted to lie (taqiyya) to non-Muslims.

·         Qur'an (16:106) -   Any one who, after accepting faith in Allah, utters Unbelief,- except under compulsion, his heart remaining firm in Faith - but such as open their breast to Unbelief, on them is Wrath from Allah, and theirs will be a dreadful Penalty.

·         Qur'an (2:225) -   Allah will not call you to account for thoughtlessness in your oaths, but for the intention in your hearts; and He is Oft-forgiving, Most Forbearing.

·         Qur'an (3:28) - Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah: except by way of precaution, that ye may Guard yourselves from them. But Allah cautions you (To remember) Himself; for the final goal is to Allah.  Fictitious infidel friends are okay only if they achieve a greater purpose.

Note 2:  Discrimination, Muslims are permitted and compelled to discriminate against non-Muslims.

·         Qur'an (5:51) -  "O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people."

·         Qur'an (3:28) "Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah:”

·         Qur'an (9:23) - "O ye who believe! Choose not your fathers nor your brethren for friends if they take pleasure in disbelief rather than faith. Whoso of you taketh them for friends, such are wrong-doers"

·         Qur'an (53:29)  - "Therefore shun those who turn away from Our Message and desire nothing but the life of this world."

Note 3:  Abolition of adoption rights otherwise granted under American laws.  Islam prohibits adopting children.

·         Qur’an (33:004) -   Allah has not made for any man two hearts in his (one) body: nor has He made your wives whom ye divorce by Zihar your mothers: nor has He made your adopted sons your sons. Such is (only) your (manner of) speech by your mouths.

·         Thereligionofpeace.com reports - So controversial was Muhammad's desire to marry his adopted son's wife that he had to justify it with a stern pronouncement from Allah on the very institution of adoption, which has had tragic consequences to this day.  Verses  33:4-5 are widely interpreted to imply that Islam is against adoption, meaning that an untold number of children in the Islamic world have been needlessly orphaned - all because Muhammad's lustful desires for a married woman went beyond even what the other six wives that he possessed at the time and a multitude of slaves could satisfy.

Note 4:  Abolition of Wills, Inheritance Instruments and Last Testaments established under American laws.

·         Qur’an (4:011) -   Allah (thus) directs you as regards your Children's (Inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females: if only daughters, two or more, their share is two-thirds of the inheritance; if only one, her share is a half. For parents, a sixth share of the inheritance to each, if the deceased left children; if no children, and the parents are the (only) heirs, the mother has a third; if the deceased Left brothers (or sisters) the mother has a sixth. (The distribution in all cases ('s) after the payment of legacies and debts. Ye know not whether your parents or your children are nearest to you in benefit. These are settled portions ordained by Allah; and Allah is All-knowing, Al-wise.

·         Qur’an (4:012)   And unto you belongeth a half of that which your wives leave, if they have no child; but if they have a child then unto you the fourth of that which they leave, after any legacy they may have bequeathed, or debt (they may have contracted, hath been paid). And unto them belongeth the fourth of that which ye leave if ye have no child, but if ye have a child then the eighth of that which ye leave, after any legacy ye may have bequeathed, or debt (ye may have contracted, hath been paid). And if a man or a woman have a distant heir (having left neither parent nor child), and he (or she) have a brother or a sister (only on the mother's side) then to each of them twain (the brother and the sister) the sixth, and if they be more than two, then they shall be sharers in the third, after any legacy that may have been bequeathed or debt (contracted) not injuring (the heirs by willing away more than a third of the heritage) hath been paid. A commandment from Allah. Allah is Knower, Indulgent.

·         Last Will and Testament form provided by Islamicbulletin.org   

Note 5:  Abolition of certain interest income otherwise specified in loan, mortgage and other borrowing documents.

·         Qur'an (2:275)Those who devour usury will not stand except as stand one whom the Evil one by his touch Hath driven to madness. That is because they say: "Trade is like usury," but Allah hath permitted trade and forbidden usury. Those who after receiving direction from their Lord, desist, shall be pardoned for the past; their case is for Allah (to judge); but those who repeat (The offence) are companions of the Fire: They will abide therein (for ever).

·         Qur'an (3:130)O ye who believe! Devour not usury, doubled and multiplied; but fear Allah; that ye may (really) prosper.

·         Qur'an (4:161)That they took usury, though they were forbidden; and that they devoured men's substance wrongfully;- we have prepared for those among them who reject faith a grievous punishment.

Note 6:  Diminished rights of women in court.  It takes the testimony of two women to equal one man in Sharia court.

·         Qur'an (2:282)"And call to witness, from among your men, two witnesses. And if two men be not found then a man and two women”

·         Qur'an (2:228)"and the men are a degree above them [women]"

Note 7:  Polygamy, Muslim men may marry up to four wives.  Muhammad married thirteen women in violation of the Qur'an which he inspired his prophets to write.

·         Quran (4:3)"Marry of the women, who seem good to you, two or three or four; and if ye fear that ye cannot do justice (to so many) then one (only) or (the captives) that your right hands possess."

·         NPR.org reported on May 27, 2008 that there are as many as 100,000 Muslims quietly practicing polygamy in the United States.  “No one knows how many Muslims in the U.S. live in polygamous families. But according to academics researching the issue, estimates range from 50,000 to 100,000 people.”  The number today is likely much higher given the dramatic increase in Muslim immigrants granted asylum in the United States by President Obama.  

Note 8:  Pedophilia, Muslim men can marry girls as young as 14.  However, Muhammad took a wife named Ayesha that was six years old.

·         Quran (56:017)Round about them will (serve) youths of perpetual (freshness),

·         Quran, Surah 76:19  Allah promises fresh youths to Muslim men.  And round about them shall go youths never altering in age; when you see them you will think them to be scattered pearls. 

·         Quran, Surah 76:19And round them shall go boys of theirs as if they were hidden pearls.

·         Muslim Pedophilia in the UK Ignored by Politically-correct Authorities The New American reported on August 29, 2014.   “Report author Alexis Jay cited appalling acts of violence between 1997 and 2013 in Rotherham, a town of some 250,000.  ... The report described rapes by multiple perpetrators, mainly from Britain's Pakistani community, and how children were trafficked to other towns and cities in the north of England, abducted, beaten, and intimidated.  ‘There were examples of children who had been doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, threatened with guns, made to witness brutally violent rapes and threatened they would be next if they told anyone," Jay said. "Girls as young as 11 were raped by large numbers of male perpetrators.’”

Note 9:  Muslim husbands are given the right to beat their wives as a form of discipline.

·         Qur'an (4:34) -  "Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great."

·         Qur'an (38:44) - "And take in your hand a green branch and beat her with it, and do not break your oath..."  Allah telling Job to beat his wife (Tafsir).

Note 11:  Vicious jihad against non-Muslims to establish Islam's rule worldwide.  Muslims who cannot take on physical jihad must support it with their money.

Fatwa 209643  Islamqa.info  Mohammad Al Munajjid, Al-Khobar, Eastern Province, Saudi Arabia    

Praise be to Allah

The fuqaha’ are unanimously agreed that jihad in Allah’s cause (fi sabeel-Allah) using force and weapons is one of the things on which zakaah funds may be spent, as mentioned in Soorat at-Tawbah, where Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):

“As-Sadaqat (here it means Zakat) are only for the Fuqara (poor), and Al-Masakin (the poor) and those employed to collect (the funds); and for to attract the hearts of those who have been inclined (towards Islam); and to free the captives; and for those in debt; and for Allah’s Cause [fi sabeel-Allah] (i.e. for Mujahidoon - those fighting in the holy wars), and for the wayfarer (a traveller who is cut off from everything); a duty imposed by Allah. And Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise.” [at-Tawbah 9:60].

But they differed as to whether jihad other than with the sword is included in the general meaning of the words of Allah “and for Allah’s Cause”, based on the difference of opinion as to whether the phrase should be understood according to its broader linguistic meaning or the specific shar‘i understanding of the concept of “Allah’s cause”.

There are three different interpretations, starting with one that is very specific and gradually broadening the meaning:   


The first view is that the meaning of “Allah’s cause” is so specific that it does not include anything other than jihad by the sword and spear. This is the view of the majority of Hanafi, Maaliki and Shaafa‘i fuqaha’, and of Ibn Qudaamah among the Hanbalis. It is also regarded as more correct by the Council of Senior Scholars in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. See al-Buhooth al-‘Ilmiyyah, 1/73.

Ibn Qudaamah (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

This is the view of Maalik, Abu Haneefah, ath-Thawri, ash-Shaafa‘i, Abu Thawr, and Ibn al-Mundhir, and this is more correct, because the phrase “Allah’s cause” in general terms only refers to jihad. Every time “Allah’s cause” is mentioned in the Qur’an, what is meant by it is jihad, except in a few cases. So what is mentioned in this verse should be understood in accordance with that, because that is what the apparent meaning indicates.
