Do Muslims Around the World Support ISIS?


The mainstream media makes us believe that the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (or ISIL) is a pure Islamic law-compliant group. We at Anonymous would like to tell our readers that this is not true. Why? Because they do not follow the basic commandments of Islam at all.

Nihad Anwad, National Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, published a letter in which he attempted to explain the basic Islamic Laws that ISIS has violated:

  • It is obligatory to consider Yazidi (Christian and Jews) as People of the Scripture.
  • It is forbidden in Islam to deny women their rights.
  • It is forbidden in Islam to force people to convert.
  • It is forbidden in Islam to disfigure the dead.
  • It is forbidden in Islam to destroy the graves and shrines of Prophets and Companions.
  • It is forbidden in Islam to harm or mistreat Christians or any ‘People of the Scripture’.
  • Jihad in Islam is a purely defensive struggle. It is not permissible without the right cause, the right purpose, and the right rules of conduct.
  • It is forbidden in Islam to kill emissaries, ambassadors, and diplomats — hence it is forbidden to kill journalists and aid workers.
  • Loyalty to one’s nation is permissible in Islam.
  • It is forbidden in Islam to declare a caliphate without consensus from all Muslims.

Muslims all around the world have been speaking out against ISIS and other extremist groups. The problem is that sometimes people do not know, or chose to ignore, this fact. Here are the top Muslim organizations and the Vatican, who have spoken out against ISIS.

The Organization Of Islamic Cooperation: “The Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam and has committed crimes that cannot be tolerated.” As the Vatican’s internal news source reported, the Secretary General for the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which represents 1.4 billion Muslims in 57 countries around the world, condemned the Islamic State’s persecution of Christians and other religious minorities in Iraq, saying that the, “forced deportation under the threat of execution is a crime that cannot be tolerated.”

The Secretary General also distanced Islam from the actions of the militant group known as ISIS, saying they, “have nothing to do with Islam and its principles that call for justice, kindness, fairness, freedom of faith and coexistence.”

Al-Azhar University: “Islamic State is corrupt and, ‘a danger to Islam.'” Lebanese paper, The Daily Star, reported that Al-Azhar’s Grand Mufti Shawqi Allam, Egypt’s highest religious authority, denounced the Islamic State as a threat to Islam and said that the group both violates Sharia law and humanitarian law: “[They] give an opportunity for those who seek to harm us, to destroy us and interfere in our affairs with the [pretext of a] call to fight terrorism.”

Arab League: Strongly denounced the crimes against humanity carried out by the Islamic State. On August 11, Nabil al-Arabi, the Arab League Chief, denounced acts committed by the Islamic State in Iraq as “crimes against humanity,” demanding that they be brought to justice. According to Al Arabiya News, he said in a statement that he, “strongly denounced the crimes, killings, dispossession carried out by the terrorists (ISIS) against civilians and minorities in Iraq that have affected Christians in Mosul and Yazidis.”

Turkey’s Top Cleric: “Islamic State’s threats are hugely damaging, truly awful.” Turkey’s highest ranking cleric, Mehmet Gormez, decried the Islamic State’s declaration of a ‘caliphate’ and argued that the statements were damaging to the Muslim community. According to Reuters:

“Such declarations have no legitimacy whatsoever,” Mehmet Gormez, head of the Religious Affairs Directorate, the highest religious authority in Turkey, which, although a majority Muslim country, has been a secular state since the 1920’s.

“Since the caliphate was abolished … there have been movements that think they can pull together the Muslim world by re-establishing a caliphate, but they have nothing to do with reality, whether from a political or legal perspective.” Gormez said death threats against non-Muslims made by the group, formerly known as Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), were hugely damaging.

“The statement made against Christians is truly awful. Islamic scholars need to focus on this [because] an inability to peacefully sustain other faiths and cultures heralds the collapse of a civilization,” he told Reuters in an interview.

The Muslim Council Of Britain: “Violence has no place in religion.” The Muslim Council of Great Britain condemned the Islamic State’s actions and expressed that they do not represent Sunni Muslims, according to The Independent. Shuja Shafi, a member of the council also said, “violence has no place in religion, violence has no religion. It is prohibited for people to present themselves for destruction.”

The Islamic Society of North America: “The Islamic State’s actions are to be denounced and are in no way representative of what Islam actually teaches.” The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) released a statement denouncing the Islamic State, “for its attacks on Iraq’s religious minorities and the destruction of their places of worship.” ISNA President, Imam Mohamed Magid, said, “ISIS actions against religious minorities in Iraq violate the Quranic teaching, ‘Let there be no compulsion in religion’ (Surat al-Baqara 2:256),” adding, “their actions are to be denounced and are in no way representative of what Islam actually teaches.”

Saudi Arabia’s Highest Religious Authority: “Terrorists like the Islamic State are the number one enemy of Islam.” On August 19, Al Jazeera reported that Saudi Arabia’s grand mufti, Abdul-Aziz ibn Abdullah Al ash-Sheikh, the country’s top religious authority, said that terrorism is anti-Islamic and said that groups like the Islamic State which practice violence are the, “number one enemy of Islam.” “Extremist and militant ideas and terrorism which spread decay on Earth, destroying human civilization, are not in any way part of Islam, but are enemy number one of Islam, and Muslims are their first victims.”

Muslim Public Affairs Council: Condemned the Islamic State and called for a, “stand against extremism.” On August 20th, the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) released a statement condemning, “the barbaric execution of American Journalist James Foley by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).” MPAC urged, “all people of conscience to take a stand against extremism,” and offered condolences to Foley’s family. MPAC also noted the importance of countering ISIS and other extremist groups by working, “to empower the mainstream and relegate extremists to the irrelevance they deserve.”

So when next time if someone tells you that only a few Muslims have spoken out against  ISIS, you will know what to say.

  1. Operation Trojan Horse

    A former chair of the education committee of the Muslim Council of Britain has been closely involved in allegations of Islamist takeovers of schools in Birmingham, since dubbed Operation Trojan Horse. The National Association of Head Teachers has also raised concerns about similar activity in Manchester, Bradford, East London and other major cities in the UK. Tahir Alam has rejected these allegations as a ‘witch hunt’, a response echoed by the Muslim Council of Britain.

    Operation Trojan Horse was investigated for the government by former head of counter-terrorism Peter Clarke. In his report, released in July 2014, he identified the MCB and the Association of Muslim Schools as two organisations in “an international movement to increase the role of Islam in education”.

  2. The problem with the ten points above is that every one of them has been consistently violated throughout the history of Islam – rather like Christian responses to the Ten Commandments. The worst violateors have often been states that have Islamic ‘law’ as part of their legal system – currently, for instance, Saudi Arabia, which violates, at the very least, 2,4,5 and 6 on a regular basis … One of the many problems with all religious scriptures is that they are open to wide interpretations, and the Qur’an and Hadiths are among the most obscure, inconsistent and contradictory of all. Otherwise Musilims wouldn’t have been killing each other since shortly after Muhammed’s death …

    • “Saudi Arabia , which violates, at the very least, 2,4,5 and 6 on a regular basis”
      Try to distinguish the line between culture and religion. And yes there are muslims who don’t follow the rules but its their choice.
      If a teacher tells you not to cheat, and you do cheat, who should get the blame? Certainly today, hypothetically the teacher gets the blame despite all he/she taught you, so it wouldn’t be their fault would it now?

    • nah, i’m from egypt and he’s completely right
      maybe because you are from Syria and Isis force all of you to support them or join’em and i can say 99.98% from Arab world hate Isis it doesn’t represent us as Arabs and it’s doesn’t represent Islam or Muslims

    • nah, he’s completely right
      i’m from Egypt and trust 99.99% from Egyptians hate Isis they don’t represent us they don’t represent Islam or Muslims “Violence has no place in religion”

  3. There’s also one very important point that needs to be made, and it boils down to basic elementary-school-level math. There are, according to this article, at least 1.4 billion Muslims inhabiting this planet. There are no more than 70,000 Muslims who have been radicalized to a violent extreme, enough to be classified as terrorists.

    That means that 0.005% of all Muslims are actively trying to kill us.

  4. Whole idea of people in power is to crate global conflict between Islamic and Catholic word or US, Europe against Middle East and Asia. So bankers family will get reacher and population will be kept low and easy to control.

  5. The best thing is not only about right picture’s meaning but when you understand that in the left photo head and mouth are hidden aswell that means they can’t think for theirselves and talk that they want.

  6. The Pakistani Muslim scholar Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr. Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri has issued an extensive and thoroughly researched and referenced fatwa (in 2010) against all terrorism. The original Urdu version is 600 pages long. You can find an English summary, which itself is quite long, here:
    There are also YouTube videos (some in English)) of Tahir-ul-Qadri eloquently and vehemently expounding on his fatwa and related topics.

    In essence, Tahir-ul-AQadri declares that anyone who engages in suicide bombings or any sort of terrorism or killing, destruction and oppression such as ISIS/ISIL is doing, is thereby not a Muslim but rather an unbeliever. This, somewhat simplistically, is because Allah does not condone any such actions or behaviors, so anyone who has submitted to the Will of Allah is not allowed to commit or support any such acts.

    • wishfull thinking for the schoolar, Shaykh-ul-Islam….but in practice, islamist are killing innocent people all over the world.!!…and the WORLD needs to defend itself!!..regardless of whatever shit our goverments are doing in your countries….we the PEOPLE have no fucking bussines in that.!!..if you have a grudge against a country, then attack the military of that country, and not the civilian population,!!..this is an act of a COWARD, attacking defenseless civilians.!!…I know the REAL ARAB MUSLIM will never accept such an action, but then again, it’s being a decent muslim against those who betrayed the QORAM.!! is your call brothers.!!

  7. our islam don’t force any body to get into it and terrors following something like a fake islam and doing things god never said to do it our islam said ” u have ur relegion and i have mine ” and forcing ppl to get in it is forbiden

    • Of course YOU don’t want to know this, because it’s totally different than what the Illuminati been washing your brain with since your childhood, I understand your frustration my dear human friend!
      Muslim world being a victim by the CIA creation ISIS, how in the world you think they don’t know?!!!

  8. No Anonymous Seriously im now going to state 100 or so VERSES to the Qur’an that promote killing innocent Jew,Christians,ECT.

    Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief or unrest] is worse than killing…
    but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)” (Translation is from the Noble Quran) The historical context of this passage is not defensive warfare, since Muhammad and his Muslims had just relocated to Medina and were not under attack by their Meccan adversaries. In fact, the verses urge offensive warfare, in that Muslims are to drive Meccans out of their own city (which they later did). The use of the word “persecution” by some Muslim translators is thus disingenuous (the actual Muslim words for persecution – “idtihad” – and oppression – a variation of “z-l-m” – do not appear in the verse). The actual Arabic comes from “fitna” which can mean disbelief, or the disorder that results from unbelief or temptation. Taken as a whole, the context makes clear that violence is being authorized until “religion is for Allah” – ie. unbelievers desist in their unbelief.

    Quran (2:244) – “Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things.”

    Quran (2:216) – “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.” Not only does this verse establish that violence can be virtuous, but it also contradicts the myth that fighting is intended only in self-defense, since the audience was obviously not under attack at the time. From the Hadith, we know that this verse was narrated at a time that Muhammad was actually trying to motivate his people into raiding merchant caravans for loot.

    Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to HELP.”

    Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”. This speaks directly of polytheists, yet it also includes Christians, since they believe in the Trinity (ie. what Muhammad incorrectly believed to be ‘joining companions to Allah’).

    Quran (4:74) – “Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.” The martyrs of Islam are unlike the early Christians, who were led meekly to the slaughter. These Muslims are killed in battle as they attempt to inflict death and destruction for the cause of Allah. This is the theological basis for today’s suicide bombers.

    Quran (4:76) – “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…”

    Quran (4:89) – “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

    Quran (4:95) – “Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward,-” This passage criticizes “peaceful” Muslims who do not join in the violence, letting them know that they are less worthy in Allah’s eyes. It also demolishes the modern myth that “Jihad” doesn’t mean holy war in the Quran, but rather a spiritual struggle. Not only is the Arabic word used in this passage, but it is clearly not referring to anything spiritual, since the physically disabled are given exemption. (The Hadith reveals the context of the passage to be in response to a blind man’s protest that he is unable to engage in Jihad and this is reflected in other translations of the verse).

    Quran (4:104) – “And be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy; if you suffer pain, then surely they (too) suffer pain as you suffer pain…” Is pursuing an injured and retreating enemy really an act of self-defense?

    Quran (5:33) – “The PUNISHMENT of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”

    Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them” No reasonable person would interpret this to mean a spiritual struggle.

    Quran (8:15) – “O ye who believe! When ye meet those who disbelieve in battle, turn not your backs to them. (16)Whoso on that day turneth his back to them, unless maneuvering for battle or intent to join a company, he truly hath incurred wrath from Allah, and his habitation will be hell, a hapless journey’s end.”

    Quran (8:39) – “And fight with them until there is no more fitna (disorder, unbelief) and religion should be only for Allah” Some translations interpret “fitna” as “persecution”, but the traditional understanding of this word is not supported by the historical context (See notes for 2:193). The Meccans were simply refusing Muhammad access to their city during Haj. Other Muslims were allowed to travel there – just not as an armed group, since Muhammad had declared war on Mecca prior to his eviction. The Meccans were also acting in defense of their religion, since it was Muhammad’s intention to destroy their idols and establish Islam by force (which he later did). Hence the critical part of this verse is to fight until “religion is only for Allah”, meaning that the true justification of violence was the unbelief of the opposition. According to the Sira (Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 324) Muhammad further explains that “Allah must have no rivals.”

    Quran (8:57) – “If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember.”

    Quran (8:67) – “It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war until he had made a great slaughter in the land…”

    Quran (8:59-60) – “And let not those who disbelieve suppose that they can outstrip (Allah’s Purpose). Lo! they cannot escape. Make ready for them all thou canst of (armed) force and of horses tethered, that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy.”

    Quran (8:65) – “O Prophet, exhort the believers to fight…”

    Quran (9:5) – “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.” According to this verse, the best way of staying safe from Muslim violence is to convert to Islam (prayer (salat) and the poor TAX (zakat) are among the religion’s Five Pillars). This popular claim that the Quran only inspires violence within the context of self-defense is seriously challenged by this passage as well, since the Muslims to whom it was written were obviously not under attack. Had they been, then there would have been no waiting period (earlier verses make it a duty for Muslims to fight in self-defense, even during the sacred months). The historical context is Mecca after the idolaters were subjugated by Muhammad and posed no threat. Once the Muslims had power, they violently evicted those unbelievers who would not convert.

    Quran (9:14) – “Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people.” Humiliating and hurting non-believers not only has the blessing of Allah, but it is ordered as a means of carrying out his PUNISHMENT and even “healing” the hearts of Muslims.

    Quran (9:20) – “Those who believe, and have left their homes and striven with their wealth and their lives in Allah’s way are of much greater worth in Allah’s sight. These are they who are triumphant.” The Arabic word interpreted as “striving” in this verse is the same root as “Jihad”. The context is obviously holy war.

    Quran (9:29) – “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” “People of the Book” refers to Christians and Jews. According to this verse, they are to be violently subjugated, with the sole justification being their religious status. This was one of the final “revelations” from Allah and it set in motion the tenacious military expansion, in which Muhammad’s companions managed to conquer two-thirds of the Christian world in the next 100 years. Islam is intended to dominate all other people and faiths.

    Quran (9:30) – “And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!”

    Quran (9:38-39) – “O ye who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter. Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place.” This is a warning to those who refuse to fight, that they will be PUNISHED with Hell.

    Quran (9:41) – “Go forth, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the way of Allah! That is best for you if ye but knew.” See also the verse that follows (9:42) – “If there had been immediate gain (in sight), and the journey easy, they would (all) without doubt have followed thee, but the distance was long, (and weighed) on them” This contradicts the myth that Muslims are to fight only in self-defense, since the wording implies that battle will be waged a long distance from home (in another country and on Christian soil, in this case, according to the historians).

    Quran (9:73) – “O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.” Dehumanizing those who reject Islam, by reminding Muslims that unbelievers are merely firewood for Hell, makes it easier to justify slaughter. It also explains why today’s devout Muslims have little regard for those outside the faith.

    Quran (9:88) – “But the Messenger, and those who believe with him, strive and fight with their wealth and their persons: for them are (all) good things: and it is they who will prosper.”

    Quran (9:111) – “Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Quran: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme.” How does the Quran define a true believer?

    Quran (9:123) – “O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness.”

    Quran (17:16) – “And when We wish to destroy a town, We send Our commandment to the people of it who lead easy lives, but they transgress therein; thus the word proves true against it, so We destroy it with utter destruction.” Note that the crime is moral transgression, and the PUNISHMENT is “utter destruction.” (Before ordering the 9/11 attacks, Osama bin Laden first issued Americans an invitation to Islam).

    Quran (18:65-81) – This parable lays the theological groundwork for honor killings, in which a family member is murdered because they brought shame to the family, either through apostasy or perceived moral indiscretion. The story (which is not found in any Jewish or Christian source) tells of Moses encountering a man with “special knowledge” who does things which don’t seem to make sense on the surface, but are then justified according to later explanation. One such action is to murder a youth for no apparent reason (74). However, the wise man later explains that it was feared that the boy would “grieve” his parents by “disobedience and ingratitude.” He was killed so that Allah could provide them a ‘better’ son. (Note: This is one reason why honor killing is sanctioned by Sharia. Reliance of the Traveler (Umdat al-Saliq) says that punishment for murder is not applicable when a parent or grandparent kills their offspring (o.1.1-2).)

    Quran (21:44) – “We gave the good things of this life to these men and their fathers until the period grew long for them; See they not that We gradually reduce the land (in their control) from its outlying borders? Is it then they who will win?”

    Quran (25:52) – “Therefore listen not to the Unbelievers, but strive against them with the utmost strenuousness…” “Strive against” is Jihad – obviously not in the personal context. It’s also significant to point out that this is a Meccan verse.

    Quran (33:60-62) – “If the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease, and the alarmists in the city do not cease, We verily shall urge thee on against them, then they will be your neighbors in it but a little while. Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter.” This passage sanctions the slaughter (rendered “merciless” and “horrible murder” in other translations) against three groups: Hypocrites (Muslims who refuse to “fight in the way of Allah” (3:167) and hence don’t act as Muslims should), those with “diseased hearts” (which include Jews and Christians 5:51-52), and “alarmists” or “agitators who include those who merely speak out against Islam, according to Muhammad’s biographers. It is worth noting that the victims are to be sought out by Muslims, which is what today’s terrorists do. If this passage is meant merely to apply to the city of Medina, then it is unclear why it is included in Allah’s eternal word to Muslim generations.

    Quran (47:3-4) – “Those who disbelieve follow falsehood, while those who believe follow the truth from their Lord… So, when you meet (in fight Jihad in Allah’s Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives)… If it had been Allah’s Will, He Himself could certainly have PUNISHED them (without you). But (He lets you fight), in order to test you, some with others. But those who are killed in the Way of Allah, He will never let their deeds be lost.” Those who reject Allah are to be killed in Jihad. The wounded are to be held captive for ransom. The only reason Allah doesn’t do the dirty work himself is to to test the faithfulness of Muslims. Those who kill pass the test.

    Quran (47:35) – “Be not weary and faint-hearted, crying for peace, when ye should be uppermost (Shakir: “have the upper hand”) for Allah is with you,”

    Quran (48:17) – “There is no blame for the blind, nor is there blame for the lame, nor is there blame for the sick (that they go not forth to war). And whoso obeyeth Allah and His messenger, He will make him enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow; and whoso turneth back, him will He punish with a painful doom.” Contemporary apologists sometimes claim that Jihad means ‘spiritual struggle.’ Is so, then why are the blind, lame and sick exempted? This verse also says that those who do not fight will suffer torment in hell.

    Quran (48:29) – “Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard (ruthless) against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves” Islam is not about treating everyone equally. There are two very distinct standards that are applied based on religious status. Also the word used for ‘hard’ or ‘ruthless’ in this verse shares the same root as the word translated as ‘painful’ or severe’ in verse 16.

    Quran (61:4) – “Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way” Religion of Peace, INDEED! The verse explicitly refers to “battle array” meaning that it is speaking of physical conflict. This is followed by (61:9): “He it is who has sent His Messenger (Mohammed) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam) to make it victorious over all religions even though the infidels may resist.” (See next verse, below). Infidels who resist Islamic rule are to be fought.

    Quran (61:10-12) – “O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment. That you believe in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad ), and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know! (If you do so) He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of ‘Adn – Eternity [‘Adn (Edn) Paradise], that is indeed the great success.” This verse refers to physical battle in order to make Islam victorious over other religions (see above). It uses the Arabic word, Jihad.

    Quran (66:9) – “O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey’s end.” The root word of “Jihad” is used again here. The context is clearly holy war, and the scope of violence is broadened to include “hypocrites” – those who call themselves Muslims but do not act as such.

    • U just cant take a verse as evidence to justify ur views.First u must read the full Chapter then only u will come to know.

      The sheer lies about what Islam actually teaches, and how hateful Islamophobes are, TRULY test your patience to the MAXIMUM! The problem isn’t the lies and the propaganda in and of themselves. No, the REAL problem is what they are being used for: WARS, INVASIONS, ATTACKS, and of course these IN TURN, will provoke retaliations, often from misguided and unauthorised elements. Therefore, it’s VERY important to know the FACTS. These are ONLY some brief examples to illustrate the teachings, but there are many other references confirming the same thing. If you have a question please feel free to ASK ME: Please SHARE if you find this helpful. Thank you.

      1. Terrorism is above all murder. Murder is strictly forbidden in the Qur’an. Qur’an 6:151 says, “and do not kill a soul that God has made sacrosanct, save lawfully.” (i.e. murder is forbidden but the death penalty imposed by the state for killing is permitted). 5:53 says, “… whoso kills a soul, unless it be for murder or for wreaking corruption in the land, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind; and he who saves a life, it shall be as if he had given life to all mankind.”
      2. If the motive for terrorism is religious, it is absolutely FORBIDDEN in Islam. It is NOT allowed to attempt to impose Islam on other people. The Qur’an says, “There is no compulsion in religion. The right way has become distinct from error.” (-The Cow, 2:256). Note that this verse was revealed in Medina in 622 AD or after and was never abrogated by any other verse of the Quran. Islam’s holy book forbids coercing people into adopting any religion. They have to choose it, willingly.
      3. Islamic law forbids aggressive warfare. The Quran says, “But if the enemies incline towards peace, do you also incline towards peace. And trust in God! For He is the one who hears and knows all things.” (8:61) The Quran chapter “The Cow,” 2:190, says, “Fight in the way of God against those WHO fight AGAINST you, but begin not hostilities. Lo! God loves not aggressors.”
      4. In the Islamic law of war, not just any “ old Tom, Dick and Harry” can declare or launch a war. It is the prerogative of the duly constituted leader of the Muslim community that engages in the war. Nowadays that would be the president or prime minister of the state, as advised by the mufti or national juris consult.
      5. The killing of innocent non-combatants is forbidden. According to Hadith, ‘Abu Bakr al-Siddiq, the first Caliph, gave these instructions to his armies: “I instruct you in ten matters for war: Do not kill women, children, the old, or the infirm; do not cut down fruit-bearing trees; do not destroy any town. Do not slaughter sheep or camels except for food. Do not burn bees and do not scatter them. Do not steal from the booty, and do not be cowardly. . . ” (Malik’s Muwatta’, “Kitab al-Jihad.”)
      6. Vigilantism or hirabah is forbidden in Islamic law, which groups it with brigandage, highway robbery and extortion rackets– any illicit use of fear and coercion in public spaces for money or power. The principle of forbidding the spreading of terror in the land is based on the Qur’an (Surah al-Ma’ida 5:33–34). Prominent [pdf] Muslim legal scholar Sherman Jackson writes, “The Spanish Maliki jurist Ibn `Abd al-Barr (d. 464/ 1070)) defines the agent of hiraba as ‘Anyone who disturbs free passage in the streets and renders them unsafe to travel, striving to spread corruption in the land by taking money, killing people or violating what God has made it unlawful to violate is guilty of hirabah . . .”
      7. Sneak attacks are forbidden. Muslim commanders must give the enemy fair warning that war is imminent. The Prophet Muhammad at one point gave 4 months notice. This means that the aggressor must be warned, reasoned out and given time to rethink their hostile decision and make the innocent safe. FOUR months is slightly longer than 10 seconds that Israel gives sleeping Palestinian children.
      8. Both the Quran and the Prophet Muhammad pbuh commanded doing good to those who harm you and is said to have counselled, “Do not be people without minds of your own, saying that if others treat you well you will treat them well, and that if they do wrong you will do wrong to them. Instead, accustom yourselves to do good if people do good and not to do wrong (even) if they do evil.” (Al-Tirmidhi)
      9. The Qur’an demands of believers that they exercise justice toward people even where they have reason to be angry with them: “And do not let the hatred of a people prevent you from being just. Be just; that is nearer to righteousness.”[5:8]
      10. The Qur’an assures Christians, Jews and others of paradise if they believe and do good works, and commends Christians as the best friends of Muslims. The Quran does not preach violence against Christians or Jews or any non-Muslims. It preaches self-defence and recommends patience if that is better for the situation. It is NOT about you. It’s about assuring justice and peace for all.
      Quran 5:69 says (Arberry): “Surely they that believe, and those of Jewry, and the Christians, and those Sabeaans, whosoever believes in God and the Last Day, and do works righteousness–their reward waits them with their Lord, and no fear shall be on them, neither shall they sorrow.”
      In other words, the Quran promises Christians and Jews along with Muslims that if they have faith and good works, they need have no fear in the afterlife. It is not saying that non-Muslims go to hell– quite the opposite.
      When speaking of the 7th-century situation in the Muslim city-state of Medina, which was being attacked by the enemies of Muslims from the unbelievers of Mecca, the Quran notes that the polytheists and some Arabian Jewish tribes chose to attack Muslims in opposition to Islam, but then goes on to say:
      5:82. ” . . . and you will find the nearest in love to the believers [Muslims] those who say: ‘We are Christians.’ That is because amongst them are priests and monks, and they are not proud.”
      So the Quran not only does not urge Muslims to commit violence against Christians, it calls them “nearest in love” to the Muslims! The reason given is their piety, their ability to produce holy persons dedicated to God, and their lack of overweening pride.

    • So, Ethan

      Do not give one verse from Quran’s paragraph!
      must read full paragraph, and think whole paragraph.
      Otherwise, you’ll be wrong.

      Meanwhile, have you ever read Torah?

      Torah verses says, kill mans,womans,child and kill their sheeps, cows and burn their houses… etc.

      Did you read verses like this in Torah?

      Read, you will see..

      • Osiris, you know as well as I that arguing with a bigot is an impossible task. Notice he is apparently OK with the atrocities carried out in the name of Judiasm and Christianity. People like him will likely NEVER see anything from any other angle than their own.

    • no bro u r not true ……….u must read whole chapter n just dont start from middle of paragraph… the whole quran n den speak

  9. it’s all ridiculous … people spending so much time and energy to fight about whose imaginary overlord is the right one , and in the meantime , there has never been proof of it being anything but the ramblings of ignorant bronze age MEN … not gods , MEN … until god , or allah , or jehovah , or santa comes down and hand delivers his or her message to the masses , it’s all fighting over make believe … stupidest bullshit ever …

    • Who? And what is your understanding of the meaning of the Fatwa?
      My dear all of the above in the article are fatwas and Muslims are fighting and defeating ISIS right now following these fatwas not the west who claim that they are fighting ISIS while over 5000 airstrike only few hundreds were killed of ISIS!!! It’s like every 15 missile and bomb kills 1 ISIS member! do you call this is a real fight? There is no mountains where ISIS occupy in Iraq and Syria, so they are easy target, yet ISIS don’t have many casualties by the west comparing to what the people who are following the fatwa doing to them.
      Take care
      Wake Up.

  10. Dont you get it already ?
    All wars are based on religious radicals wanting to be the next Saint or messiah
    Why do these people decide to take it on themselves to make religious War when funds and money can be sent to famine or countries in need.
    All that happens is heart break for families and religions that take place in these abismal Wars.
    All the religions should sit around a table and talk out there problems
    Because it’s not the countries that make War it is the religions of the world that cause the Issuses
    Personally I am not religious I don’t believe in a God as I believe that God was put it our heads by the ruling classes of the World to Control the people other wise why should we do anyone’s bid or toil.
    If there was no God would there be Anarchy or would there be Peace in the World?

  11. i would bet the farm that somewhere in their cult these is a edict that says,
    whatever you say is the truth despite what the truth might be.

  12. The ISIS or their self proclaimed Khalifates/Islamic State does not represent Islam by any means. They are not just anti-Islamic but are enemies of the humanity. Their ruthless activities against people in Iraq and Syria are not meant for helping Muslims but defame Islam. Their so called anti-Western interpretation of Islam is only aiming to serve their political agendas in the wider Muslim world. Supporting their activities through any means is forbidden according to the basic principles of Islam. I urge all the Muslims to condemn their activities and to pray for the people who suffer from their merciless activities as its our responsibility to denounce them and to reject their notion of Islamic state as its our religious duty.
    Its also time for us to sit, think and reflect on the so called modern interpretations of political Islam and what it has done to Muslims across the world since its inception in the ealry 20th century. Its very evident from the stories we hear from various parts of the world that their activities are only making Muslims’ life more chaotic and miserable. We also see that these modern political interpretations of Islamic belief system is acting as root cause for the origin and spread of various militant movements in the Islamic world. Its also interesting to see how easily these political Islamists join hands with the imperial interests and political priorities of the powerful nations in the world. So Its not surprising that why these militant organizations are in hurry to demolish historical monuments and sufi shrines which represents Muslims’ peaceful coexistence with other communities and cultures, from the very moment they get hold on a region. May Almighty help all of us to surpass this phase crisis of humanity, peacefully and confidently.

    • Amen brother, Hope everyone read and understand your call!
      To all who didn’t understand the message, Demolishing the historical monuments is a big proof that ISIS the creation of CIA *CONTINUE* These historical monuments were before during and after Mohammed and his companions when they were in power over these regions till these days, yet no one thought as ISIS of demolishing them!!! Doesn’t this makes you forget your hate about Islam a bit and open your mind to think who are these monsters(ISIS)?

    • I HATE how the bigots of this world ignore eloquent words like these, and continue their UNFOUNDED hatred of everything that doesn’t fit THEIR world view. I am not a religious person, but I support the fight for religious freedom with all my heart. It makes me so sad that people see ISIS as the defacto representation of Islam.

      • Its just pure human hate and stupidity, One group is bad so they all must be bad. Blame religion, instead of the REAL problem, the elitist and the wealthy 1%.

      • ISIS is the REPRESENTATION of today’s muslims in the world, wether you like it or not, it’s a fact.!!..whether they are inspired or funded by any force…it does not matter..!!…they
        are ruthless fanatic muslims that need to be EXTERMINATED.!!…no words needed in between with this kind of animals.!!!..

          • so Lull your response bro….(anonvoid)…Muslims of the world need to be civilized, wake up and smell the coffee, we are living in the 21st century, not the middle age.!!
            Muslims must adapt and stop trying to IMPOSE their middle age religion practices on others.

          • you’re not the one to tell the muslims what they must and must not do, so start adapting and stop imposing (yourself) 😉

  13. Muslims and Muslim sympathizers scream loud and hard saying “Don’t call us terrorists!” but what have they done to stop those extremists! They don’t want or like people thinking that ISIS is representing Islam then DO SOMETHING to stop them. They are in their communities, their families, their Mosques. They don’t want to be associated with them and we don’t want to be killed by them!

    From above “That means that 0.005% of all Muslims are actively trying to kill us.”

    How many of the 1.6 billion Muslims that are not actively trying to kill us support those that are?!?!?

  14. In islam it is not forbidden to lie non islam people, so this entire article is bull crap… Islam is the most evil thing Satan ever invented…

    • What is your Evidence that Islam allows lying to non muslim. Show me a single verse from the Quran if you have guts to else you are full of crap.

    • please schoolars of religions, show this guy the part of the Quram where it says that LYING to a NONBELIEVER is acceptable…allowed by Allah…..

      • I believe what he meant is lying to the enemy in the case of war while being held or captured which is a very specific situation, and very obvious!

  15. The hypocritical pomposity of theology makes it the catylist for conflict, always has, always will. Science has proven reality time and time again, maybe we should give it a go. Just a thought. Sorry was I thinking too much, are we still allowed to think?

  16. Actions speak louder than words. I read the news from all over the world. It is all very consistent with the view that Islam is not a religion of peace. Wherever, Muslims immigrate, they disrupt, defile and destroy the cultures who take them in. They demand tbat everyone follow their beliefs. They act as if they are superior and anyone not Muslim, is inhuman. They rape, molest children and devour the resources of the host countries. What about the paedophilia, the mistreatment of women, the mass killings of Christians and Jews.
    All over the world, countries are turning against Islam.
    Why are the majority of refugees from all Muslim countries, male? It seems to be a pattern.
    Since Its am a Christian, living in a Christian law based country, whose family came from Europe, I don’t understand why Muslims want to come to our country when they hate our religion and our culture?
    It seems to me, for us all to live in peace, we should not be forced to integrate with cultures so diametrically opposed to our own.
    Someone posted that Bin Kaden offered to let us Americans all convert to Islam, before he had the Twin Towers attacked from thw sky. We are supposed to accept that? We are supposed to open our borders and let them destroy us from within?
    We would have to be total fools to do that
    So Anonymous and all you Muslims who tell us to ignore the evil death talk of your schizophrenic holy book and have you interpret it for us, we see the videos, the mass graves the Christians burned and drowned in cages, the genocide. We know Allah tells you to do that. They are Islamic terrorists. You own them. You are responsible for them. At leasts Christians know when they do wrong and ask for forgiveness. Muslims don’t seem to think killing is wrong.
