Quote from: "TrueVision"
Quote from: "DoctorNO"Where in the Qur'an does Islam encourage World Domination?
World Domination is part of the Daru 'l-Harb doctrine of Islam. This Doctrine comes out of verses in the quran that says the world belongs to Allah. There are also hadeths that say it. Most muslims take this as meaning all the world must be converted to Islam
[22:64-65] To Him belongs everything in the heavens and everything on earth. Absolutely, Allah is the Most Rich, Most Praiseworthy. Do you not see that Allah has committed in your service everything on earth?
[31:26]To Allah belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth. He is the Rich, the Praised.
[57:10] And what cause have ye why ye should not spend in the cause of Allah?- For to Allah belongs the heritage of the heavens and the earth
[22:58-59] Those who emigrate for the sake of Allah, then get killed, or die, Allah will surely shower them with good provisions. Allah is certainly the best Provider. Most assuredly, He will admit them an admittance that will please them. allah is Omniscient, Clement.
[22:78] You shall strive for the cause of Allah as you should strive for His cause. He has chosen you and has placed no hardship on you in practicing your religion
Daru 'l-Harb is the doctrine (found in the hadith as well as in the Qur'an) that the earth belongs to Allah and to his Messenger. In the Qur'an Allah promises the world to his followers. This leads to the idea that jihad is a defensive war - liberating what already belongs to Allah and to his Umma. Hence the Muslims by waging jihad are taking back what is theirs. Even the whole world.
Since the world belongs to the Allah, any power that prevents them from having it is by definition oppressive, and upsurping the Umma's rights.
In the early hadiths, Umar says to his generals: When you will take the land that God gives you, back... . This means that jihad - even ?offensive? jihad is ALWAYS a defensive war of liberation. This is one of the theological factors that makes discussion of jihad so confusing.
This concept of the world belonging to Allah and his Messenger then became formalized into the doctrine of Daru 'l-Harb.
Definition of DARU 'L-HARB
DARU 'L-HARB. "The land of warfare." According to the Dictionary Ghiyasu 'l-Lughat Daru 'l-harb is "a country belonging to the infidels which has not been subdued by Islam." According to the Qamus, it is "a country in which peace has not been proclaimed between Muslims and unbelievers.
In the Fatawa Alamgiri, vol. ii. p. 854, it is written that a Daru 'l-harb becomes a Daru 'l-Islam on one condition, namely the promulgation of the edicts of Islam. The Imam Muhammad, in his book called the Ziyadah, says a Daru 'l-Islam again becomes a Daru 'l-harb, according to Abu Hanifah, on three conditions, namely (1) That the edicts of the unbelievers be promulgated, and the edicts of Islam be suppressed; (2) That country in question be adjoining a Daru 'l-harb and no other Muslim country lie between them (that is, when the duty of Jihad or religious war becomes incumbent upon them, and they have not the power to carry it on). (3) That no protection (aman) remains for either a Muslim or a zimmi; viz. that amanu 'l-awwal, or that first protection which was given them when the country was first conquered by Islam. The Imams Yusuf and Muhammad both say that when the edicts of unbelievers are promulgated in a country, it is sufficient to constitute it a Daru 'l-harb.
Definition DARU 'L-ISLAM
DARU 'L-ISLAM "Land of Islam." According to the Raddu 'l Mukhtar, vol. iii. p. 391, it is a country in which the edicts of Islam are fully promulgated.
In a state brought under Muslims, all those who do not embrace the faith are placed under certain disabilities. They can worship God according to their own customs provided they are not idolaters; but it must be done without any ostentation and whilst churches and synagogues may be repaired, no new place of worship can be erected. "The construction of churches and synagogues in Muslim territory is unlawful, this being forbidden in the Traditions; but if the places of worship belonging to Jews, or Christians, be destroyed, or fall into decay, they are at liberty to repair them because buildings cannot endure forever."
