        Shukran but I don’t have facebook. I’m stuck trying to get the Dinar and Dirham thing going in South Africa and it seems like you know a lot about it. I’ve managed to make my own dirhams but thats as far as i goes- I’ve contacted other places like e-dinar and Juwara tumasik but there’s no real support from them

      Jazakallah, I will try to get a hold of him but cape town is a bit far from where I stay.

      I did have facebook but it was distracting me all the time. Even in Salaah, so I got rid of it.

      I have a small favour to ask if its okay, I don’t know anyone in Malaysia and I’d like to get some Kelantan dirhams, Could you please find out the prices and post it for me, I’ll pay through paypal. but please send me a direct email first because I cannot leave private details on here

      Hello! Question! Following the Arab invasion of Egypt in around 640 AD, the Arabs collected tax (called Jezia) from the Egyptians in terms of gold dinars. They collected 14 million dinars per year according to a scholar I heard on TV recently. How much you think the average Egyptian made in “gold dinars” per year?
      I think Egypt’s population was 1 – 2 million around this time. So every Egyptian on average was required to pay 7 – 14 gold dinars in tax to the Arab rulers in the peninsula of Arabia. I just would like to get a feel of how burdensome this tax was and if it was actually the reason for mass conversions to Islam at the time.

        According to Abdassamad Clarke,

        “The jizya is 4 dinars per adult male, not for women, children or old people. 4 dinars is around £600 per year. If people were in need, the treasury did not demand the jizya but gave them money instead. If anyone on earth today can show a jurisdiction in which a man pays only that amount a year in tax, many people would want to move there tomorrow. Certainly in the UK, people pay thousands of pounds in income tax, more thousands in council tax, yet more in water rates etc. Baggot Glubb says that a part of the reason for the sudden expansion of the Muslims was that they were religiously tolerant and their taxes were less severe.”

        Perhaps you can also read up on the fall of Romans and other empire, Romans for example fell down because of huge taxation, the English, the French also experienced the same. In Andalusia case, the muslims were invited to ‘invade’ East Constantinople by the locals there because of the high tax imposed on them by the Romans. If it was ‘burdensome’, why would the people ask the muslims to free them from the burdensome tax they had to pay in Constantinople? Just a thought.
