Anni time of the day: Allah commanded Muslims to “slaughter them.” That command of “armed struggle” is a “test” upon Muslims—to prove to Allah that Muslims have fully submitted to the cult—and in exchange, they get promised Allah’s reward.
So when you meet those who disbelieve [in battle], strike [their] necks until, when you have inflicted slaughter upon them, then secure their bonds, and either [confer] favor afterwards or ransom [them] until the war lays down its burdens. That [is the command]. And if Allah had willed, He could have taken vengeance upon them [Himself], but [He ordered armed struggle] to test some of you by means of others. And those who are killed in the cause of Allah – never will He waste their deeds.
