Hedaya is the Shari'ah of the Hanafi school of Islamic jurisprudence as practiced in colonial India.

Page 140 of the second volume describes Jihad as murderous, destructive and permanently established. It ends with a discussion of the communal obligation; fard al !ifaya of offensive Jihad. "age #$# continues that arcane discussion I have highlighted several important clauses in the image below. %y commentary on those highlighted clauses follows below the image.;

If no Muslim makes war all sin
&aging offensive warfare is fard al lofaya, a communal obligation binding on the 'mmah until some tribe does it. Reliance of the Traveller, the Shafi'i version of Shari'ah, confirms this in Book O, Chapter 9.1.

Jiha !e"omes far ain when we retaliate
(ecause we invaded )fghanistan in retaliation for *+##, all %uslims are obligated to participate in Jihad against us.

Infi els ma# !e atta"ke without pro$o"ation
%uslims assert that Jihad is strictly defensive. ,his ruling of Islamic law e-poses their deception. ,a!e a close loo! at this provision.
The destruction of the sword is incurred by infidels, although they be not the first aggressors, as appears from various passages in the sacred writings which are generally received to this effect.

estru"tion of the swor
,hat means destroy you with the sword, not destroy the sword. .estruction is mentioned elsewhere in volume /. 0n page /#/ we discover that Ji1ya is imposed in lieu of destruction. 2ote that !illing women and children is prohibited because they are plunder for %uslims.

Infi elit#% an e$il to !e remo$e !# eath or Islam
.isbelief constitutes waging war against )llah and his %essenger, to be punished by e-ecution as per

&urah 'l(Ma)i ah *.++. %uslims love to 3uote *.+,, but steer clear of 4.55 because it holds clues for you. ,afsir Ibn 6athir decodes the clue, ma!ing it crystal clear.

,his e-cerpt from page /#7 of Hedaya's second volume leaves no room for doubt8 death or Islam.

9-actly what part of this do you not comprehend: • capitation ta- is a species of punishment for infidelity • temporal punishment instituted for removing evil • by death or conversion to Islam ,he "rofit said that our blood and property are not sacred to %uslims. &e have no rights until we become %uslims; its open season on us. &ahih Bukhari -olume 1, Book ., /um!er +.08 2arrated )nas bin %ali!8 )llah's )postle said, 1I ha$e !een or ere to fight the people till the# sa#% )/one has the right to !e worshippe !ut 'llah.)
