Shaikhul Hadith Mawlana Zakariya mohajir Madani (Allah have mercy on him) said,
‘In fact the matter concerning dhimmis (ذمی) in these affairs (i.e. rights of Non-Muslims living in an Islamic state) is far more serious than that of Muslims.
The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said in this regards,
‘He who oppresses any Dhimmi, or defames and degrades him, or demands from him anything more than he can bear or do, I will stand against that person and make demand in favor of that dhimmi on the Day of Judgemnent.’
This is truly a very serious matter and a point worthy of great concern.
At the most critical moment (on the Day of Judgement) ones’s own attorney and defendant (the Prophet, blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) becomes the prosecutor. How tragic this situation can be?
‘My Pakistani friends must be very cautious regarding this as the non-Muslim (living) there are Dhimmis in all respect.’

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr:
The Prophet said, “Whoever killed a Mu’ahid (a person who is granted the pledge of protection by the Muslims) shall not smell the fragrance of Paradise though its fragrance can be smelt at a distance of forty years (of traveling).”
