'' is that annual fee which is charged from the non-Muslims for the safety and security
provided to their life, property and honour by a Muslim State. Muslims pay Zakat and non-Muslims pay Jizyah.

'' torment is that particular punishment which Allah will inflict upon the inhabitants of Hell. If anyone
gives a similar punishment to anybody in this world, he will be punished by Allah in the Hereafter for it, because He
does not like anyone to do so. To make someone stand in a sizzling hot day and pour oil over his head is one type of
tormenting people. For this reason, Hisham bin Hakim (May Allah be pleased with them) mentioned this Hadith to
the Governor to warn him and make him abolish the punishment.
3. We also learn from this Hadith that it is incumbent on every Muslim to enjoin good on people and forbid them
from doing evil.
4. Tyrants should be warned against their tyrannies so that they abstain from them.

Ibn `Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) said:
The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saw an ass which had
been branded on the face. He disapproved of it. Upon this Ibn `Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) said, "By
Allah, I shall not brand (the animal) but on a part at a distance from the face.'' Ibn `Abbas (May Allah be pleased
with them) then commanded branding on the hips; he was the first person to brand the animals on hips
We learn from this Hadith that if an animal is to be branded for identification, it should not be
branded on the face. The Hadith also points out the superiority of Ibn `Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) and
his obedience to the Prophet's command not to brand an animal on the face.

Ibn `Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) said: An ass with a brand on the face happened to pass before
the Prophet (PBUH). Thereupon he said, "
May Allah curse the one who has branded it (on the face)
Another narration in Muslim is: "
The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) prohibited us from hitting across the face and
branding on the face (of an animal).
Since face is the most sensitive and delicate part of the body, Muslims are strictly forbidden from
causing even the slightest harm to it, no matter whether it is mankind or animal. Although, it is permissible to beat
one's wife, children and slaves etc., for discipline but there is a stern warning that they should not be hit on the face.
