Your ignorance is-----CUTE. A poll tax (aka "head tax") is a fixed
tax PER PERSON. Zaka is determined by assets. Poll taxes under the
vile filth of shariah were demanded of each person ----even those
who are absolutely destitute. Shariah law got IMPOSED on jews
by arab invaders and imposed on in the Iberian Peninsula by arab
invaders. Waiting for the next Khutbah Jumaat feces fling?
The jizya is not a head tax because women and juveniles, injured, elderly, soldiers, etc., did not pay.
And while it is not the same as zakat as I thought, is also was not a fixed amount, but varied with personal wealth and government need.
But most likely is that they started the same, and got corrupted over time.
And you are entirely wrong about the Iberian Peninsula.
It was imported Jewish Viziers who were the tax collectors there.
The Moors did not want to deal with administration details.
