The author says in his introduction, «The aim of this booklet is to educate new Muslims about laws that pertain to non-Muslims in matters of Aqeedah (creed) and Fiqh (Jurisprudential Law) and the stance one should acquire from them, and how he should interact with non-Muslims in his country, and other related issues. I have written this in response to the request of the brothers from Sulai Da’wah Office in Riyadh who felt it was important to clarify these rulings to new Muslims in a concise and inclusive way.»

Terminology used in this Book

1. Rubb: Some prefer to translate the term ‘Rubb’ into ‘Lord.’ Beside the fact that the latter is a Biblical term referring to the alleged lordship of the slave of Allah, Prophet Jesus, the word ‘lord’ which is limited to ‘master’, ‘chief’, ‘proprietor’, or ‘ruler’, can never convey the conclusive signification of the term ‘Rubb’. Among other signification, the term ‘Rubb’ means, the Creator, the Fashioner, the Provider, the One upon Whom all creatures depend for their means of subsistence, and the One Who gives life and causes death.

2. Deen: The word translated as religion is ‘Deen’, which in Arabic commonly refers to a way of life, which is both private and public. It is an inclusive term meaning: acts of worship, political practice, and a detailed code of conduct, including hygiene or etiquette matters.

3. [PBUH] Sal’lal’laaho a’laihi wa sal’lam. Some translate it as peace be upon him. This translation is incorrect; the correct translation is, may Allah exalt his mention, and render him and his household safe and secure from every derogatory thing.

4. [PBUH] Radi Allahu anhu. This means: ‘with whom Allah is pleased.’ It is said when the Companions name’s are mentioned.

I begin with the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Beneficent

All praise is due to Allah, Rubb of the worlds, and may Allah exalt the mention of his Prophet, Muhammad, and render him and his household and companions safe from every derogatory thing.

The aim of this booklet is to educate new Muslims about laws that pertain to non-Muslims in matters of Aqeedah (creed) and Fiqh (Jurisprudential Law) and the stance one should acquire from them, and how he should interact with non-Muslims in his country, and other related issues.

I have written this in response to the request of the brothers from Sulai Da’wah Office in Riyadh who felt it was important to clarify these rulings to new Muslims in a concise and inclusive way.

Who is a Non-Muslim?

He is the one who disbelieves in the Message of our Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] or does not believe in a pillar of the Deen or something known by necessity therein.

Types of non-Muslims

First Type: A person who is non-Muslim openly and privately. They are known as ‘Obvious Kaafir’. Obvious Kaafirs can be categorized into two categories:

First Category: Original Kaafirs. They are the ones who have not accepted Islam previously. This category includes People of the Book, Majians, and others. They have specific rules which vary according to their religions.

Second Category: Apostates. They are the ones who accepted Islam, and then apostatized; whether they accepted Islam after the age of puberty or were raised as Muslims or their fathers were Muslims and then later, they apostatized.

Second Type: Those who openly show that they are Muslims, when in fact they conceal Kufr (disbelief) in their hearts. They are called hypocrites (munafiq). Legally, they are called: ‘Kaafir’. Continue reading
