Muslims under the tyrant have a duty to fight back or migrate if they are weak

Allah says in the Qur’an: Al-Baqara
Lo! those who believe, and those who emigrate (to escape the persecution) and strive in the way of Allah, these have hope of Allah’s mercy. Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. (218)

Aisha, wife of the Prophet (pbuh) asked, “O Messenger of Allah, what kind of jihad is better?” He replied, “A word of truth in front of an oppressive ruler!” (Sunan Al-Nasa’i #4209)

سُوۡرَةُ البَقَرَة
إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ وَٱلَّذِينَ هَاجَرُواْ وَجَـٰهَدُواْ فِى سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ أُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ يَرۡجُونَ رَحۡمَتَ ٱللَّهِ‌ۚ وَٱللَّهُ غَفُورٌ۬ رَّحِيمٌ۬ (٢١٨)

Allah says in the Qur’an: An-Nisa
Lo! as for those whom the angels take (in death) while they wrong themselves,

Islam 101The angels will ask: In what were ye engaged?

They will say: We were oppressed in the land.

(The angels) will say: Was not Allah’s earth spacious that ye could have migrated therein? As for such, their habitation will be hell, an evil journey’s end; (97)

Except the feeble among men, and the women, and the children, who are unable to devise a plan and are not shown a way. (98)

As for such, it may be that Allah will pardon them. Allah is ever Clement, Forgiving. (99)

Who so migrate for the cause of Allah will find much refuge and abundance in the earth, and who so forsake his home, a fugitive unto Allah and His messenger, and death overtake him, his reward is then incumbent on Allah. Allah is ever Forgiving, Merciful. (100)

And when ye go forth in the land, it is no sin for you to curtail (your) worship if ye fear that those who disbelieve may attack you. In truth the disbelievers are an open enemy to you. (101)

The Qur’an permits fighting to defend the religion of Islam and the Muslims. This permission includes fighting in self-defence and for the protection of family and property.

Allah declares in the Qur’an: Al-Hajj
Sanction (to fight) is given unto those who fight because they have been wronged; and Allah is indeed Able to give them victory; (39) Those who have been driven from their homes unjustly only because they said: Our Lord is Allah – For had it not been for Allah’s repelling some men by means of others, cloisters and churches and oratories and mosques, wherein the name of Allah is oft mentioned, would assuredly have been pulled down. Verily Allah helpeth one who helpeth Him. Lo! Allah is Strong, Almighty – (40)   

“To those against whom war is made, permission is given (to defend themselves), because they are wronged – and verily, Allah is Most Powerful to give them victory – (they are) those who have been expelled from their homes in defiance of right – (for no cause) except that they say, ‘Our Lord is Allah’…” (22:39-40)

The Qur’an adds: Al-Baqara

Fight in the way of Allah against those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Lo! Allah loveth not aggressors. (190) And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter. And fight not with them at the Inviolable Place of Worship until they first attack you there, but if they attack you (there) then slay them. Such is the reward of disbelievers. (191) But if they desist, then lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. (192) And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah. But if they desist, then let there be no hostility except against wrong-doers. (193)

“Fight in the cause of Allah against those who fight against you, but do not transgress limits. Lo! Allah loves not aggressors. …And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah. But if they desist, then let there be no hostility except against transgressors.” (2:190, 193)
