Keywords:Islamic state, non-Muslim temples, traditional Islamic position, understanding
This article is an attempt to understand the traditional Islamic position regarding non-Muslim temples in an Islamic state. Exploring the variations in the referred perspective it concludes that according to the traditional stance it is not permissible to build non-Muslim temples in the cities inhabited by Muslims and in the cities that have been forcibly taken over by Muslims. However cities which have been acquired by the Muslims through reconciliation by the condition that the land will remain in possession of non-Muslims and Muslims will be given Jizyah, they can build temples as the land belongs to them and the cities that have been acquired by the Muslims through reconciliation and by the condition that the land will be the property of the Muslims and the Muslims will be paid Jizyah, there they will be dealt with according to what was promised to them. In the present context, according to the proponents of the traditional position, Muslim-administered areas where non-Muslims live can build temples according to their population and needs with the permission of Muslim rulers. In view of the current situation in Pakistan, it has been said that non-Muslims can build temples according to their needs, but these temples should not be built with public funds.
