Thank you akhi. Also what is the zaydi view on jihad? Is jihad only permissible as defensive jihad? As the ithna ahsaris? Or like the Sunni who wish to establish a khilafa before imam Mahdi?
No problem!

We apologise for the lateness in our reply. We were experiencing some technical difficulty.

As for your question, according to a Zaydi encyclopaedic text Al-Bihar az-Zakhkhar, jihad against non-Muslims in their lands can only occur with the presence of the imam. The existence of an imam is a precondition. And he can extend the invitation to Islam, jizya or war. And it is the discretion of the imam as to whether he wants to extend the invitation to non-Muslim governments.

And Allah knows best!
