Muslims are no-nonsense people who don’t worry about superficialities!
The self-hating Islamite and liar from Yemen living in Abu Dhabi, who claims to be a pious scholar, was once engaging in “interfaith dialog” with those whom he calls his “brothers” and whose priests he addresses as “your holiness” – the christians – and he was fawning over his christian “brothers“.
The topic of jizyah came up, and embarrassed and ashamed to be Muslim, the self-hating Islamite submissively told his christian “brothers” that ‘the jizyah is not meant as a humiliation or penalty for being kafir, but rather it is just a tax and that our Master ‘Umar radzi Allahu ‘anhu even permitted the christians of bani taghlib to call it as ‘sadaqah’ (charity)‘.
The self-hating Islamites work with lies, half-truths, distortions and abrogations.
It is true that our Master ‘Umar radzi Allahu ‘anhu permitted such, and that in general as stated in the fiqh books, subject to discretion of the imam or ruler of Muslims, the dhimmis can be allowed to name it such.
However, this is what our Master ‘Umar radzi Allahu ‘anhu said about those christians, as narrated by many scholars in their books:
هَؤُلَاءِ حَمْقَاءُ رَضُوا بِالْمَعْنَى وَأَبَوْا عَنْ الِاسْمِ
Those morons agreed to the MEANING and were stuck on the NAME.
This below narration is with a slightly different spelling in Arabic:
هؤلاء حمقى رضوا بالمعنى وأبوا الاسم
You’d never see the self-hating Islamite from Yemen telling you that, would you?
It is true that jizyah-paying dhimmis are indeed protected by the Islamic state, and in many material dealings, they are treated at par to Muslims. It is forbidden to hurt them and oppress them or even backbite about them. However, this does not negate their humiliation and penalization as infidels either, like not being permitted to walk in the center of the street, or to stand up and make place when a Muslim enters, and so on. Our Master ‘Umar radzi Allahu ‘anhu did indeed permit them to name the jizyah as sadaqah upon their insistence, as did the fuqahaa of the 4 madhhabs following our Master ‘Umar. However, this change of name does not entail a change in the PRACTICAL LIFE & GROUND REALITY MANIFESTATIONS of the covenant of dhimmah.
Do note that there are no dhimmis in these times, as none of the Muslim leaders charge the jizyah. This is an abomination and acting contrary to the direct command of the Quran. In the same narration of ‘Umar’s negotiation with the morons, ‘Umar said this regarding the jizyah, REFUSING to waive it from them:
هذا فرض الله على المسلمين
Allah has OBLIGATED this [jizyah] upon Muslims.
(that is, obligated Muslims to charge jizyah to kafirs)

Read our Master ‘Umar’s quote above regarding the morons again and enjoy your day.
And Allah alone grants success.
