Mu'min Bhai,

Islam allows physical Jihad only under two conditions:

- Self-defense

- Stop persecution

You know that the persecuted Persian and Byzantine people used to come seeking relief from the State of Madinah. The exalted Prophet and Hazrat Umar had warned their rulers before taking action. Also, the empires' knights on the borders of the Islamic State often committed violent crimes.
