The quote above comes from the Hnifi version of Islamic Law and is found in Hedaya, Volume II, Book IX, page 141. It means that infidels may be attacked without provocation. The Qur'an verses1 behind that passage from Islamic Law have no expiry, they are open ended,. Thus, the communal obligation to wage Jihad against disbelievers continues to the end of the world.
The quote above comes from Page 140 of Hedaya's second volume; it is a translator's note The Shafi'i school's Reliance of the Traveller, in Book O9.1. makes plain the fact that attacks against passive infidels are required annually; that all who know of the communal obligation are sinners if no attack is carried out when it is possible.
The first is when they are in their own countries, in which case jihad (def: o9.8) is a communal obligation, and this is what our author is speaking of when he says, "Jihad is a communal obligation," meaning upon the Muslims each year....
-Objectors declare that Islam is a religion, an equally valid pathway to God. They pray and they sway so it must be ok. Was any legitimate religion founded for the personal emolument of its founder? Does the deity of any legitimate religion sanctify and reward acts of terrorism? Does the founder of any legitimate religion brag about winning wars by terrorism? 3:151, 8:12,39,57,60,65,67, 9:5,29,38, 39,111,120,123, 33:26,27, 47:4,49:15, 59:2,13, 61:10-13; Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331 & 4.52.220. 2 Does the deity of any legitimate religion demand genocide3 as the price of admitting its founder to Paradise? Is Islam a legitimate religion entitled to the umbra of protection afforded by the First Amendment's free exercise clause?
Why do they attack us?
That is what Adams & Jefferson wanted to learn when they met Tripoli's Ambassador, so they asked him. At that time, we had no boots on the ground in Arabia or Asia and Israel was dominated by the Ottoman Empire.
The orders to fight
Surah Al-Baqarah 2:216 makes it plain that Jihad4 is ordained for Muslims; a communal obligation. The next verse makes it plain that Jihad, in that context, means holy war.
Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387 is one of several hadith which confirm the Jihad imperatives. It also brings unpleasant facts to light:
- Our blood and property are not sacred to Muslims: The season is open and we can be attacked with impunity.
- As disbelievers, we have no human rights; we only obtain them by becoming Muslims.
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah's Apostle said, "I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.' And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah." Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, "O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?" He replied, "Whoever says, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah', faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have."
What motivates Muslims?
Terrorists are motivated by Allah's threat and promise because they are believers5. If they were hypocrites, whose Islam goes no deeper than their throats, they would not be planting bombs. On resurrection day, Allah will weigh their sins against their good deeds. The swing of the balance determines where they spend eternity, Paradise or Perdition.
A Muslim who does not join the Jihad when called will be damned.
A Muslim who joins the Jihad with good intentions will have his sins forgiven and be admitted into Paradise.
Why do they hate us?
Muslims hate us because we are not them. Why? Because Allah hates us; we are accursed, the worst of creatures who must be punished, defeated and gathered into Hell. Muslims love what Allah loves and hates what Allah hates. The concept is called Wala Wal Bara.They hate us and attack us because we ain't Muslims; nothing short of sincere conversion to Islam will change that. If we want to stop the attacks, we must deport all Muslims and exclude them from entering. There is no acceptable alternative.

- "until he has made a great slaughter"
"until you have killed and wounded many of them"
- Translator's definition
- 8:1-5, 9:111 & 49:15 define believers: those who fight in Allah's cause.
