Are Non-Muslims Treated Equally?

treatment of non-muslims

One of the questions I have received asked me to address the relationship between Muslims and non-Muslims. In this video, Imam Wasif explains the taxes (Jizya) that are required of non-Muslims and contrasts Jizya with Zakat that is required of all Muslims. He also references letters written by Muhammad promising protection for non-Muslims.  There is an interesting video on one of these letters here  and a Wikipedia article here.
