The Qur'an dehumanizes infidels: They are vile animals and beasts, the worst of creatures and demons;  perverted transgressors and partners of Satan  to be fought until religion is Allah's alone.
Whosoever contends with Muhammad deserves death. In the spirit of al-Wala wal-Bara, Muslims are to be compassionate with one another but ruthless to the infidel.
URDU: Badayata Al-Mujtahid wa Nahayat Al-Muqtasid by Ibn Rushd
The infidels must not be taken as friends. It is Islam that distinguishes between self and other, between insider and outsider, between brother and stranger … the ultimate definition of the other, the alien outsider and presumptive enemy, has been the kafir [infidel].
To love God is to reject those who reject Him. O believers do not hold Jews and Christians as your allies. They are allies of one another; and anyone who makes them his friends is surely one of them; and Allah does not guide the unjust.
Jews are cursed forever,  having been transformed into apes and swine  or apes alone.
O Servant of Allah, there is a Jew hiding behind me, so come and kill him. Jesus is a Muslim prophet; Christ's divinity is a blasphemy and thus the foundations of Christianity are false. Supremacy of the Muslim and the Way of War The logical outcome of this world-view is the Islamic imperative to subjugate the world through the establishment of a universal umma.
It would be wicked and embracing al-Bara to permit humanity to ignore the perfect law of Allah, and thus it is a religious duty to create the most perfect world by political or other means. The imperative that flows from this is that killing or being killed for the sake of Islam is a hallowed duty: Behold, Allah has bought of the believers their lives and their possessions, promising them paradise in return, [and so] they fight in Allah's cause, and slay, and are slain: a promise which in truth He has willed upon Himself in [the words of] the Torah, and the Gospel, and the Qur'an.

And who could be more faithful to his covenant than Allah? The world is divided into two distinct realms: Dar al-Islam the house of submission and Dar al-Harb the house of the sword , and the normal and only justified relationship between the two is a state of perpetual war.
There can be no peace with non-Muslims, only temporary truces. Jihad reflects the normal relations existing between the believers and the infidel.
Islamic wars are futuhat, derived from the Arabic root for "open" in the sense that they open the world to the call of Islam; wars instigated by the infidel are hurub, derived from the Arabic root for "anger. Islam then sees war as the means of creating peace by subjugating all others and enforcing Islamic order.
A pax Islamica covering the globe is the aim of jihad, and therefore, it is a just war. A hudna or truce does not imply the abandonment of jihad but rather a suspension of hostilities, a dormant status from which a leader may revive fighting at any time at his will.
Love, Hate, and Prayer Five times a day, Muslims declare their total allegiance and submission to God by reciting the opening verses of the Qur'an. While the first six verses seem unobjectionable, verses 6 and 7 take on a different complexion in light of the doctrine of al-Wala wal-Bara:  Guide us to the straight path,  the path of those whom you have favored, not of those against whom there is wrath, nor of those have gone astray. One of the earliest Qur'anic exegetes, al-Tabari , explained in his Commentary on the Qur'an that "those against whom there is wrath" are the Jews while "those who have gone astray" are the Christians.
Thus, notwithstanding the extensive whitewashing of the inherent prejudice within Islam in an attempt to portray Jews and Christians as honored and protected "people of the book" ahl al-Kitab rather than plain infidels, one of the central pillars of the Islamic faith maintains that Jews and Christians are the "other" to be avoided if one is to live by al-Wala wal-Bara.
In fact, Muslim jurists are careful to make this distinction: Under Islamic rule, and only under Islamic rule, are Jews and Christians to be considered ahl adh-Dhimma, a protected group of second-class citizens designated as such because of their connection to the "Book" the Bible.
When Jews and Christians reside outside Islamic rule as do Jews in the State of Israel , then they are no longer ahl adh-Dhimma but infidels. The practice of declaring other Muslims infidel takfir due to insufficient piety is widely practiced by Salafists and Wahhabis and used by jihadists to justify the use of violence against other Muslims. Jihadists frequently point to a saying attributed to Muhammad: This community will be split up into seventy-three sects, seventy-two of them will go to Hell, and one will go to Paradise, and it is the majority group.
The concept of takfir, propounded by Ibn Abd al-Wahhab founder of the Wahhabist movement , includes the command that anyone who does not show sufficient levels of wala allegiance to his view of true Muslim belief and adequate bara rejection of non-Muslims, including the wrong kind of Muslims is at risk of committing apostasy. Fadl" and Abdul Qadir bin Abdul Aziz, mentor of al-Qaeda's current leader Ayman al-Zawahiri: The most important duties of …[the Saved Sect] in this age are to wage jihad against the apostate rulers who have changed the rules of Allah and who govern Muslims using heretical man-made laws … the Salafi-Jihadists are at-Ta'ifa al-Mansura who have been promised victory against its enemies and the enemies of Islam.
Al-Bukhari says they are the people of knowledge.
Other scholars say they are Ahl al-Hadith [Sunna]. Al-Nawawi says: They are those who enjoin good and forbid evil [al-Wala wal-Bara]. As the Saved Sect, Salafist-jihadist groups are believed to have the divine right to judge other people's levels of observance and to kill them if necessary.
Muslims have an obligation to struggle against idolaters who do not follow what Allah has revealed. Labeling groups taghut is at the heart of the jihadists' struggle against Muslim regimes that do not comply with their Islamic conceptions, and the doctrine legitimizes their terrorist attacks.
In their view, this is grounded in a hadith: "Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him. Fitra is the natural predisposition of all humans to recognize that there is but one God and, by extension, to submit to His will. Islam is called Din al-Fitra, the religion of human nature, because in the Muslim view, its laws and its teachings are relevant to the entire universe and all human beings.
There is no better time when Muslims and other objective researchers need reliable methodological tools for understanding the true nature, spirit, principles and philosophy of Islam and its law. The book under review supplies a satisfactory response to this demand. Originally written as a training manual, the book is arranged in a lesson-by-lesson style, with 46 lessons divided under eight sections, three appendices and a Glossary of Terms.
Each of the lessons is followed by study questions. It provides insight into how jurists perform ijtihad, the process of formulating fatwa, reasons for differences of opinions among scholars and how to make informed and faithful choices among divergent rulings.
It presents the mechanisms that will help one appreciate the inescapability of diversity and multiplicity of approaches by scholars in interpreting divine texts and deriving rulings therefrom. In section 2, the book delves into the analysis of the sources of evidence in the Islamic Law.

All juristic schools accept the authority of the primary sources and, to a large degree Ijma, but differ regarding the others. On Sunnah they differ regarding the level of authority of a solitary narration Hadith Ahad. Also, all the four major Sunni schools use qiyas even though their founding jurists did not use the same methods and conditions for its application.
This is important in distinguishing between the immutable, eternal divine text and the fallible human interpretations of the texts.
This also showcases the imperative of continuous ijtihad and renewal of Fiqh-based fatwas that are subject to changes based on time, space and circumstances. The section also talks about speaking in the name of God, highlighting on the prerequisite credentials for doing so and the dangers of dwelling into that without possessing the requisite qualifications. Section 4 examines the question of certainty in the authenticity of texts and the implication of that on the strength and certainty of evidence derived therefrom.In this manual Ibn Rushd traces most of the issues of Islamic law, describing not only what the law is, but also elaborating the methodology of some of the greatest legal minds in Islam to show how such laws were derived.
