confused
Q. First, Muslims were paying zakah (the annual charity) to the Islamic state, which was used for all sorts of services and social welfare....Zakah is an Islamic act of worship, but it is only for Muslims. It was fair to make non-Muslim citizens of the same state pay a similar (in fact, smaller) amount as a tax, since zakah is not taken from them as it is taken from Muslims. ..Jizyah was calculated in different ways throughout different eras (a certain amount of money, certain percentage of the crops, etc), but it was consistently less than the zakah, which every Muslim had to pay anyway
Confused:  A. politics n social justice n education are three important factors all three are important . students should be aware citizens too .. more
