I have highlighted three crucially important segments of this page from Hedaya, the Islamic law of the Hanifi madhab. Click this link to read the page in context. [All emphasis added.]

Failure to make war against passive infidels puts the ummah in a State of sin.

State of sin. This is confirmed, in different wording in Book O,
Chapter 9.1 of The Reliance of the Traveller, from the Shafi’i madhab.
“If none of those concerned perform jihad,
and it does not happen at all, then everyone who
is aware that it is obligatory is guilty of sin, if there

was a possibility of having performed it.”

Note that there are two classes of Jihad obligation: communal and individual.

When Muslims attack, the obligation is communal.

When we retaliate, it becomes individually binding on the ummah. This is also confirmed in Reliance

O9.1.

…“In the time of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him

peace) jihad was a communal obligation after his

emigration (hijra) to Medina. As for subsequent

times, there are two possible states in respect to

non-Muslims.

The first is when they are in their own countries,

in which case jihad (def: 09.8) is a communal

obligation, and this is what our author is speaking

of when he says, "Jihad is a communal obligation,"

Muslims will assert that Surah Al-Ma’idah 5.32 proscribes unprovoked attacks. They are practicing

kitman: lying by obfuscation; quoting their scripture out of context to twist its meaning.

5:32. Because of that We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land - it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind. And indeed, there came to them Our Messengers with clear proofs, evidences, and signs, even then after that many of them continued to exceed the limits (e.g. by doing oppression unjustly and exceeding beyond the limits set by Allâh by committing the major sins) in the land!.

I added bold face emphasis to two phrases in that verse, re-read it with careful emphasis on them. have not murdered anyone or spread mischief, you must be innocent and protected, right? Wrong!

If you

5:33. The recompense of those who wage war against Allâh and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter.

The next verse, which Muslims avoid quoting, substitutes waging war against Allah for the murder clause in 5.32. What constitutes waging war against Allah? For the answer, we turn to Tafsir Ibn kathir.

…” `Wage war' mentioned here means, oppose and contradict, and it includes disbelief, blocking roads and spreading fear in the fairways.”…
