The general policy in Islam is to guarantee full rights to non- Muslim populations and therefore people subscribing to other religions were granted full civic rights by the virtue of the Quran and through the application of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)(peace be upon him).

Throughout Islamic history, groups have arisen from time to time advocating radically new and divergent ways of thinking about the religion.

Known as the Kharijis, they emerged from a radical political position and went on to develop particularly extreme beliefs that put them at odds with most Muslims.

‘Umar (radhiallahu ‘anhu) was one of the nobles of the Quraysh, broad-shouldered, tall and brave. He was feared and respected by all. How the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) wished that he should accept Islam, as he often prayed to God for showing him the right path.
