Does That Apply to Non-Muslims, Too?

Authors: Parrott, Justin
Keywords: Islamic law, theology, interfaith
Issue Date: 24-Nov-2020
Publisher: Yaqeen Institute of Islamic Research
Abstract: This article aims to highlight the status of both Muslim and non-Muslim family members and neighbors in Islam. It will explain the various covenants of protection for non-Muslims that existed in classical Islam, how these covenants granted legal protections to non-Muslims that were equivalent to those protecting Muslims, and how these covenants are analogous to the concept of ‘citizenship’ today. Finally, it will analyze some of the Prophet’s ﷺ discourse in which he used exclusive language for Muslims, but which scholars have understood for various reasons to be inclusive of non-Muslims.
