If jizya was lower than zakat, why did certain kaliphs discourage conversion to Islam in order to collect jizya? Wouldnt it have been financially better to encourage conversion so as to take a higher rate? Makes no sense to me.

Also was the jizya and the zakat designated to be used differently? Ie the zakat for the poor and the jizya for defense etc?
