Muhammad says in the Koran (9:29) that non-Muslims must pay a tax to the Islamic government or else suffer. This girl’s family could not pay, so the Muslims burned their house down with their daughter in it. The daughter later died of wounds from the burns, but her last words were “forgive them.”
From the UK Independent:
A 12-year-old Christian girl who was burnt to death in her home by Isis urged her family to forgive them with her dying breath.
The girl’s mother described how jihadi fighters had set fire to the family home in Mosul, northern Iraq, after they failed to pay a religious tax on time.
The tax, known as the Jaziya, is imposed on all non-Muslims in Isis controlled territories and is calculated according to their estimated net worth.
oth the mother and her daughter managed to escape the burning house, but the child died from her fourth degree burns a few hours later.
Ms Issac told the Daily Express: “The daughter had fourth degree burns and the mother took her daughter, scrambling, doing anything to save her.
“She rushed her to the hospital and her daughter died in her arms.
“The last thing her daughter said was: ‘Forgive them’.”
Now that is forgiveness.
