The Suspicion of Compelling Others to Islam between the Quranic Text and the Texts of Jurisprudents (Fuqaha)

Auther : Dr. Mustafa Hamed Sumait

This study mainly focusses on the study of the meaning of the concept of compelling others to be Muslims and clarifying its meaning in the Islamic law (Fiqh). The researcher studies the meaning of compulsion in the Quran that denies compelling to Islam through the Quranic verse “There is no compulsion in religion” [Quran 2:256] which apparently indicates freedom of belief and the denial of compulsion to religion. The researcher also studies the jurisprudential indication of compulsion which also indicates its denial of compulsion. It also deals with the significance of intellectual coercion which he proves by giving intellectual and logical evidences. The researcher then illustrates the hypothetical indication of compulsion in the Islamic law. Based on that, he studies a number of the jurisprudents’ sayings that appear to show the possibility to compel non-believers to embrace Islam. Each text is singularly mentioned by the researcher and states the misunderstanding that occurred in expressing the meaning of compulsion, and stating its true meaning. Then he studies the indication of fiducial compulsion through the judgement of the belief of the compelled one inwardly and outwardly. And he concludes by giving a clarification about the acceptance of the belief of the compelled one and not looking at his physical state that is contrary of being a Muslim. Keywords: Compelling Others- the Texts of Jurisprudents (Fuqaha- Faith- Thought- The assumption
