Islam established that people of other religions have to pay a tax to Muslims called the jizya, as a reminder of their inferior status. It was a per capita yearly tax levied by Islamic states on certain non-Muslim subjects permanently residing in Muslim lands under Islamic law. Muslim jurists required adult, free, sane males among the non-muslim community to pay the jizya, while exempting women, children, elders, handicapped, the ill, the insane, monks, hermits, slaves and non-Muslim foreigners who only temporarily reside in Muslim lands.

In India, Islamic rulers Kutubdin Aiwak imposed jizya on non-Muslims first time which was called called kharaj-o-jizya.
