Sahih Bukhari Volume 3, Book 43, Number 656:

Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until the son of Mary (i.e. Jesus) descends amongst you as a just ruler, he will break the cross, kill the pigs, and abolish the Jizya tax. Money will be in abundance so that nobody will accept it (as charitable gifts).

Since Jizya is abolished the verse 9:29 will have only two options to people of the book.

Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.(9:29)

Can we conclude people of book will be only given option of Islam or death under jesus?

It's a moot point. If Jesus (pbuh) does return and proves beyond doubt that he is indeed Jesus with his miracles, preaching, etc, there will no longer be any debate about Islam as the only acceptable faith.

He will lay to rest the cruci-fiction by showing that he was not crucified but only appeared that way. He will abolish the current world order of tyranny through capitalism, which is symbolized by the pig. And jyzya will be meaningless since everyone will be muslim.


this hadith of tax abolish is wrong because the command of Allah can not be changed by anyone

  • Why should it be? It means that there will be none but Muslims and therefore no jizya to be payed.
