ISIS – THE EVIL OF ISLAM

 


The Islamic State (ISIS) has now produced a full-color online magazine to spread their evil ideology. Their main intention for publishing the magazine is to provide justification for the atrocities they commit in the name of Islam. Interestingly, the magazine openly justifies the atrocities of the Islamic State by citing the example of Muhammad. It includes numerous quotes from the Qur’an and the Hadiths, providing context from the life of Muhammad to justify the group’s brutal actions. The magazine also condemns Muslims who do not support the creation of the Caliphate by the Islamic State. These Muslims are branded as “Hypocrites. It accuses them of deserting their Islamic obligation to wage jihad against the infidels and establishing the rule of Islam worldwide.

While the forces of the Islamic State provide strong evidences from the Qur’an and the Hadiths for the authorization of their actions in Islam, Westernized Muslims are in denial – deliberately. They claim that the Islamic State is violating the teachings of Islam. They dodge the clear evidences of the Qur’an and the Hadiths. They distract us by raising questions such as: “Will any religion support the evils as extreme as those carried out the Islamic State?” Well there is one, that is, if you can call it a religion. It is known as Islam. We will now provide indisputable evidences to prove that all the evil acts of the Islamic State are authorized by Allah in the Qur’an. What is important is the fact that all these evidences are based on authentic Islamic sources.

HOLY DECEPTION

The evils committed by the Islamic State are a preview of a world under Islam. The utterly evil atrocities of the Islamic State are sending shock-waves around the world. Their crimes include rape, sexual slavery, mass killing, robbery, beheading, crucifixion, and cold-blooded murdering of civilians. Innocent people are being butchered just because they do not comply with the evil teachings of the religion of these evil murderers. Children are beheaded, mothers are raped, and fathers are killed. And all these criminal acts are carried out in the name of Islam.

The Islamic State does not conceal the fact that their evil actions are legitimate in Islam. In fact, they are proud of the wicked acts they execute in the name of Islam. This can be seen by the fact that they arrogantly release gruesome photos and videos documenting their slayings on the internet for all to see. They are committing mass murder, and advertising it as well. Why not? After all, they are only emulating the same murderous tactics that were used by Muhammad and his followers when they consolidated the Arabian Peninsula.

However, Muslims in general did not anticipate this. Secretly, they are embarrassed by this exposure on their religion. The explosion of the photos and videos by the Islamic State is putting an end to the deception of Muslims that the horrors perpetuated in the name of Islam are not Islamic. Some damage control needs to be carried out. And as usual, Muslims resort to deception.

For example, after viewing the video by the Islamic State which showed the beheading of the American journalist, James Foley, British Muslim leader and adviser to the Muslim Council of BritainIqbal Sacranie, stated:

“This is totally alien to Islam.”

And the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia denounced the Islamic State. In his condemnation of the Islamic State, he said the following:

“The Islamic State is enemy number one of Islam.”

The problem with the above statements and many similar to these is that they are all based on lies. They are a deception by Muslims. Muslims say this to deliberately play down the atrocities of the Islamic State as having “nothing to do with Islam. Lying is a binding principle of Islam. It is known as “Taqiyya. This Arabic word literally means concealing or disguising and it is used as strategy in times of danger. And Islam is in danger.

In the authoritative Arabic text, Al-Taqiyya Fi Al-Islam, it is openly admitted:

“Taqiyya is of fundamental importance in Islam. Practically every Islamic sect agrees to it and practices it. We can go so far as to say that the practice of taqiyya is mainstream in IslamTaqiyya is very prevalent in Islamic politics, especially in the modern era.”

Someone once said: “Silence in the face of evil is evil itself. Therefore, it is not only unwise to remain silent but it is also morally wrong. These lies must be exposed. It is time to call their bluff. Let us analyze the actions of the Islamic State against the backdrop of Islam and see if their actions are contrary to the teachings of the Qur’an. We will enumerate some of their criminal acts and see whether they match up to the teachings of Allah.

OFFENSIVE WARFARE

The principal ideology of the Islamic State is conquest through warfare. They are willing to fight and kill to establish Islamic rule. The wars they engage in are not defensive but offensive. Is their motivation to engage in violent offensive conflicts a departure from the true teachings of the Qur’an? Or is it in line with the teachings of the Qur’an? Let us consult Allah.

Surah 2:216: Warfare is ordained for you, though it is hateful unto you. But it may happen that you hate a thing which is good for you and it may happen that you love a thing which is bad for you. Allah knoweth, you know not. (Pickthall)

According to the above Qur’anic verse, warfare is “ordained” for Muslims by Allah. And Allah states very clearly that warfare is “good” for Muslims. And Allah adds: “But it may happen that you hate a thing which is good for you. By refraining from warfare, peaceful Muslims “hate” what Allah says is “good” for them. To put it another way, peaceful Muslims are loving what is “bad” for them. Hence, peaceful Muslims are the ones who are un-Islamic according to the teachings of the Qur’an. In contrast, the Islamic State is loving what is “good” for them. They engage eagerly in what Allah says is “good” for them. Therefore, the Muslim fighters of the Islamic State are the true faithful Muslims in the eyes of Allah. They are the ones who are truly following the teachings of the Qur’an.

There are more than a hundred verses in the Qur’an that call for Muslims to wage war against the infidels. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off the heads and fingers of infidels and to kill the enemies wherever they may be hiding.

Surah 9:14: “Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace, and assist you against them.” (Shakir)

Surah 2:191: “And kill them wherever you find them.” (Shakir)

The Islamic State threatens to fight and kill all those who do not accept the religion of Islam. And they have the full support of the Qur’an to carry out their threat.

Surah 2:193: “And fight with them until there is no persecution and religion should be only for Allah.” (Shakir)

Well, is the policy of the Islamic State to engage in offensive warfare un-Islamic? Absolutely not! It is Islamic to the core.

EXTREME ACTS OF VIOLENCE

The Islamic State terrorizes their enemies by engaging in extreme acts of violence. Is the extreme violent behavior of the Islamic State sanctioned in Islam? What may seem as excessive and unnecessary brutality is actually a war strategy of Allah. And the Islamic State is just applying this war stratagem of Allah to the maximum.

Surah 3:151: “We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they set up with Allah that for which He has sent down no authority and their abode is the fire, and evil is the abode of the unjust.” (Shakir)

Surah 9:123: “O ye who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are near to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allah is with those who keep their duty unto Him.” (Pickthall)

Surah 8:60: “Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into the hearts of the enemies, of Allah and your enemies.” (Yusuf Ali)

The violent actions of the Islamic State are absolutely Islamic. It is absolutely in line with the teachings of the Qur’an. The Islamic State is obediently following Allah’s commandment “to strike terror into the hearts of the enemies.” Consider now the following act of terror.

Militants from the Islamic State took a Yazidi woman, tied her hands to a car and then tied her legs to another car. After hitting the accelerator, they split her in two.

Reuters – Ten days ago, villagers were suddenly surrounded by Islamic State militants with machine guns at night. They had long beards. Some had face masks and Arabic writing on the sides of their heads.

“They tied the hands of one woman to the back of a car and her legs to another car and they split her into two,” reported Hassan, 22, a student, beside makeshift tents as women cried.

“Have you seen anything like this? This is all because she is not Muslim and did not want to be converted. We barely made it.” (Reuters – Iraq Mon Aug 18, 2014, By Humeyra Pamuk)

Those unfamiliar with the history of Islam might conclude that this utterly barbaric execution carried out by the Islamic State is just a random act. Is it? How can they even come up with such an evil idea to execute someone? What evil force can there be to inspire the Islamic militants to carry out such an evil form of execution against a helpless woman? The answer is Islam. Unbelievable? Read the following Hadith.

Tabari, Volume 8, Page 96:

Allah’s Messenger sent Zayd to Wadi Qura, where he encountered the Banu Fazarah. Some of his Companions were killed, and Zayd was carried away wounded. Ward was slain by the Banu Badr. When Zayd returned, he vowed that no washing should touch his head until he had raided the Fazarah. After he recovered, Muhammad sent him with an army against the Fazarah settlement. He met them in Qura and inflicted casualties on them and took Umm Qirfah prisoner. He also took one of Umm’s daughters and Abdallah bin Mas’adah prisoner. Zyad bin Harithah ordered Qays to kill Umm, and he killed her cruelly. He tied each of her legs with a rope and tied the ropes to two camels, and they split her in two.

Muhammad then ordered his people to display the old woman’s decapitated head throughout the streets of Medina. (Source: Al nass Al Muases wa Mujtamahu – Khaleel Abdalkareem Manshurat Aljamal, Dar massar Al Muhrusa, page 174)

Umm Qirfa was an old Arab woman. She was the chief of her clan when Muhammad and his followers brutally killed her by splitting her into two. The incident took place in 622 C.E., almost six years after the migration of Muhammad to Medina.

This type of sadistic cruelty is in accordance with the spirit of Islam. Notice the similarity? The Islamic State carried out this execution, not against a man but a woman. Since there were no cars then, Muhammad’s earliest followers used camels. Just as guns replaced swords, cars replaced camels. However, the evil remains the same. And the evil continues. It will continue as long Islam exists.

MASS KILLING

What about the senseless mass killing that the Islamic State executes in the name of Islam? This too has Allah’s blessing.

Surah 8:67: “It is not for any prophet to have captives until he hath made slaughter in the land.” (Pickthall)

Surah 8:7: But Allah wished to confirm the truth by His words, and wipe the unbelievers out to the last.” (Samira)

Ibn Ishaq: 327: Allah said, “A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.”

“Allah desires killing. The Islamic State is passionately fulfilling the desires of Allah. Truly Islamic!

BEHEADING

The Islamic State is executing hundreds of their captives by beheading them with impunity. It seems to be their favorite form of execution. Are their acts of beheading a misrepresentation of Islam? Are they un-Islamic? To the contrary, the cruel practice of beheading is sanctioned by Allah in the Qur’an. And the ritual beheading of the enemies has a long precedent in the history and theology of Islam.

Surah 8:12: When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them. (Shakir)

Surah 47:4: When you encounter the unbelievers, strike off their heads, until you have made a great slaughter among them. (Sale)

Journalist James Foley was certainly an unbeliever. The evil practice of beheading extends back to the Prophet of Islam himself. Ibn Ishaq, the earliest biographer of Muhammad, recorded that Muhammad ordered the execution by decapitation of around 800 men and boys (and at least one woman) of the Jewish Banu Qurayza tribe in the market place of Medina.

Sirat Rasul Allah:

Then they surrendered, and the apostle confined them in Medina in the quarter of d. al-Harith, a woman of B. al-Najjar. Then the apostle went out to the market of Medina (which is still its market today) and dug trenches in it. Then he sent for them and struck off their heads in those trenches as they were brought out to him in batches. Among them was the enemy of Allah Huyayy b. Akhtab and Ka`b b. Asad their chief. There were 600 or 700 in all, though some put the figure as high as 800 or 900. As they were being taken out in batches to the apostle they asked Ka`b what he thought would be done with them. He replied, ‘Will you never understand? Don’t you see that the summoner never stops and those who are taken away do not return? By Allah it is death!’ This went on until the apostle made an end of them. (Sirat Rasul Allah, Page 464)

The classical Muslim jurist al-Mawardi (d. 1058 C.E.) from Baghdad was a renowned Islamic scholar who lived during the Islamic Golden Age of the Abbasid-Baghdadian Caliphate. Based on the teachings of the Qur’an and the Hadith, he wrote the following commentary regarding the treatments of infidel prisoners of jihad campaigns:

“As for the captives, the Amir (Ruler) has the choice of taking the most beneficial action of four possibilities: the first, to put them to death by cutting their necks; the second, to enslave them and apply the laws of slavery regarding their sale and manumission; the third, to ransom them in exchange for goods or prisoners; and fourth, to show favor to them and pardon them. Allah, may he be exalted, says, ‘When you encounter those who deny the Truth then strike their necks’ (Qur’an Surah 47, verse 4)” (The Laws of Islamic Governance, trans. by Dr. Asadullah Yate, p. 192.)

The Qur’an sanctions it and Muhammad practiced it. The option to pardon is extended in some instances to only those who renounce their religion and submit to Islam. The beheadings by the Islamic State is absolutely Islamic. Muslims are lying to us when they say that the beheadings executed by the Islamic State are not in harmony with the teachings of the Qur’an. They lie to cover the shame of Islam.

CRUCIFIXION

Apologists for Islam stress that punishment by crucifixion is not an Islamic practice. Therefore, they state that the Islamic State is going against the teachings of Islam when they crucify their victims. However, the Qur’an and the Hadiths disagree. The written texts of Islam provide clear evidences that Allah sanctioned this form of punishment in the Qur’an.

Surah 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.” (Shakir)

The Qur’an sanctions crucifixion as an appropriate punishment for anyone who wages war against Allah and his messenger. This does not necessarily mean that crucifixion is executed only on those who are actually fighting against the Muslims. According to Islam, even those who refuse to renounce their religion and accept Islam can be considered as waging war against Allah. That is why many ordinary civilians were crucified by the Islamic State for refusing to become Muslims. Is crucifixion Islamic? Absolutely!

AMPUTATION

The Daily Mail reported that public executions and amputations are now a weekly occurrence in parts of Syria under the control of the Islamic State. Are the actions of the Islamic State sanctioned in Islam? Under Sharia Law, amputation of hands and feet is a legitimate form of punishment. The Islamic State is implementing this law of Allah to punish those who violate its strict Islamic rule.

Surah 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. (Shakir)

The following event which took place at the time of Muhammad provides the historical context for the revelation of Surah 5:33.

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 4, Number 234:

Narrated By Abu Qilaba: Anas said, “Some people of ‘Ukl or ‘Uraina tribe came to Medina and its climate did not suit them. So the Prophet ordered them to go to the herd of (Milch) camels and to drink their milk and urine (as a medicine). So they went as directed and after they became healthy, they killed the shepherd of the Prophet and drove away all the camels. The news reached the Prophet early in the morning and he sent (men) in their pursuit and they were captured and brought at noon. He then ordered to cut their hands and feet (and it was done), and their eyes were branded with heated pieces of iron, they were put in ‘Al-Harra’ and when they asked for water, no water was given to them.” Abu Qilaba said, “Those people committed theft and murder, became infidels after embracing Islam and fought against Allah and His Apostle.”

It is one thing to execute murderers but to torture them excessively as Muhammad did is contrary to the laws of human justice. Can someone claiming to be a messenger of God display such excessive cruelty? He actually pierced their eyes with heated nails and had both their hands and feet cut off. The bodies were then thrown on stony ground to die slowly of dehydration. The dying men’s plea for water was refused. Even a prisoner on death-row is given a decent meal before he is executed. Such actions as barbaric as these will shock any decent human with a minute sense of justice but not the followers of Islam. They will defend the actions of this extremely cruel man no matter how barbaric it may be. This is the legacy of Islam. Islam gave mankind one of the cruelest laws as a punishment for those who do not conform to its barbaric teachings. And Islam was founded by an equally cruel prophet to match this cruelty.

And today the Islamic State is matching their prophet in cruelty. The acts of amputation by the Islamic State are based on the laws of Allah in the Qur’an. Absolutely Islamic!

RAPING OF THE CAPTIVES

Muslim fighters of the Islamic State are systematically raping scores of women and girls in areas under their control. United Nations condemned these savage rapes perpetrated by the forces of the Islamic State. And the raping continues. Are the Muslim fighters of the Islamic State acting on their own? Or is the raping of captives sanctioned in the Qur’an? In other words, does Islam authorize Muslims to capture and rape women and girls?

Surah 23:1-6: The believers must (eventually) win through, —Those who humble themselves in their prayers; who avoid vain talk; who are active in deeds of charity; who abstain from sex, except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or the (captives) whom their right hands possess, – for in their case they are free from blame. (Yusuf Ali)

Surah 70:22-30: Except those devoted to Salat (prayers) Those who remain constant in their Salat (prayers)… And those who guard their chastity (private parts from illegal sexual acts). Except with their wives and the (women slaves and captiveswhom their right hands possess, for then they are not to be blamed. (Hilali-Khan)

In the clear teachings of the above Qur’anic versesMuslim men are commanded to “abstain from sex, except with those joined to them in the marriage bond (wives) or with the captives whom their right hands possess. Allah also gave Muslim men the divine authority to engage in “illegal sexual acts” with the “women slaves and captives. In other words, they are authorized by Allah to rape these unfortunate women and girls who came under their control.

Hilali Khan’s translation makes this authorization crystal clear. It states that while Muslim men are not permitted to engage in “illegal sexual acts,” there is an exception to this rule. They are permitted to engage in “illegal sexual acts” with the “women slaves and captives. This means they are allowed to rape these women and girls. Even Muhammad was given the same sexual rights by Allah to engage in “illegal sexual acts” with the “women captives of war.”

Surah 33:50: “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries and those whom thy right hand possesseth of those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war.” (Pickthall)

The next Qur’anic verse is more damaging. Even married women are not spared.

Surah 4:24: “Also forbidden are married women unless they are captives of war. Such is the decree of God.” (Ahmed Ali)

The above Qur’anic verse emphatically allows for the raping of women that are taken captive, even if these captives happened to be married! We will now look at the historical context under which Surah 4:24 was revealed. The following Hadiths will help us to identify the circumstances that led to the revelation of Surah 4:24.

Tafsir Ibn Kathir on Surah 4:24:

The Ayah (verses) means, Also forbidden are women already married, except those whom your right hands possess. You are prohibited from marrying women who are already married. Except those whom your right hands possess) except those whom you acquire through war, for you are allowed such women after making sure they are not pregnant. Imam Ahmad recorded that Abu Said Al-Khudri said, “We captured some women from the area of Awtas who were already married, and we disliked having sexual relations with them because they already had husbands. So, we asked the Prophet about this matter, and this Ayah was revealed, ‘Also forbidden are women already married, except those whom your right hands possess.’ Accordingly, we had sexual relations with these women.” This is the wording collected by At-Tirmidhi An-Nasa’i, Ibn Jarir and Muslim in their Sahih.

Yes! The married women captives of war were raped right away by the conquering jihadist after Allah revealed Surah 4:24. If Allah can authorize his warriors to rape married captives, do you think he will exempt the single ones?

Sahih Muslim, Book 8, Number 3432:

Abu Sa’idal-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported that at the Battle of Hunain, Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) sent an army to Autas and encountered the enemy and fought with them. Having overcome them and taken them captives, the Companions of Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) seemed to refrain from having intercourse with captive women because of their husbands being polytheists. Then Allah, Most High, sent down regarding that: “And women already married, except those whom your right hands possess (Qur’an 4:24)”

The Islamic Legal Manual “Umdat al-Salik, which carries the endorsement of Al-Azhar University, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, states the following:

When a child or woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture and the woman’s previous marriage is immediately annulled.” Why? So that they are free to become the concubines of their captors. The Qur’an permits Muslim men to have intercourse with their wives and their slave girls: “Forbidden to you are married women, except those whom you own as slaves. (Surah 4:23-24).

To facilitate his warriors to rape, Allah destroys the sacred marriage union of the captives. Women captives are either sold or forced to become sex-slaves or concubines of the conquering jihadists. This depravity of Allah is too severe for us to ignore. It goes against the very nature of God in whose image we are created.

One of Muhammad’s warriors declared:

Tabari IX:25: “By Allah, I did not come to fight for nothing. I wanted a victory over Ta’if so that I might obtain a slave girl from among them and make her pregnant.” (See also Sirat Rasul Allah by Ibn Ishaq, p.590.)

The acts of rape by the Islamic State are absolutely Islamic. For a detailed discussion on this subject, please click the following link: ISLAM – THE RELIGION OF RAPE

ROBBING AND LOOTING

What about the robberies and lootings carried out by the Islamic State? Are their criminal acts in accordance with the teachings of Islam? You bet! According to the Qur’an, everything that is owned by the infidels belong to the Muslims. This right of ownership is granted to Muslims by Allah. Thus, Allah has given Muslims the divine right to rob us of everything. And this means our property, our land and everything that belongs to us. Therefore, it should not surprise us to learn that Muhammad became a robber only after he became a Muslim. Before that he worked as an honest trader for Khadijah.

Surah 33:27: And He made you heirs to their land and their dwellings and their property, and to a land which you have not yet trodden, and Allah has power over all things.” (Shakir)

And Islam commands Muslims to emulate their bandit prophet. Therefore, the robbing spree of the Islamic State is based on the teachings of the Qur’an.

Ishaq: 288: “Allah divided the booty stolen from the first caravan after he made spoils permissible. He gave four-fifths to those He had allowed to take it and one-fifth to His Apostle.”

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:

Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and 
I have been made victorious with terror, and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.” Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures.

Yes! The Islamic State is “bringing out those treasures” by robbery and looting. Absolutely Islamic!

SUICIDE BOMBING

Among the arsenal of the Islamic State are the many suicide bombers who are eager to blow themselves up for the cause of Allah. In Islam, it is not how one lives that guarantees salvation, but how one dies. Dying while fighting the infidels in the cause of Allah is the only sure way for Muslims to reserve a place in Paradise. Contrary to the lies propagated by Muslim apologists, to die a suicidal death while killing the enemies is sanctioned in the Qur’an. Consider the following Qur’anic verses that motivate the suicide bomber.

Surah 2:207: And there is the type of man who gives his life to earn the pleasure of Allah: And Allah is full of kindness to (His) devotees. (Yusuf Ali)

Surah 4:74: Therefore, let those fight in the way of Allah, who sell this world’s life for the hereafter; and whoever fights in the way of Allah, then be he slain or be he victorious, We shall grant him a mighty reward. (Shakir)

Surah 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 Qur’an: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? Then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme.” (Yusuf Ali)

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 59, Number 377:

Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah: On the day of the battle of Uhud, a man came to the Prophet and said, “Can you tell me where I will be if I should get martyred?” The Prophet replied, “In Paradise.” The man threw away some dates he was carrying in his hand, and fought till he was martyred.

Sahih Muslim, Book 020, Hadith Number 4681:

The tradition has been narrated on the authority of ‘Abdullah b. Qais. He heard it from his father who, while facing the enemy, reported that the Messenger of Allah said: Surely, the gates of Paradise are under the shadows of the swords. A man in a shabby condition got up and said; Abu Musa, did you hear the Messenger of Allah say this? He said: Yes. (The narrator said): He returned to his friends and said: I greet you (a farewell greeting). Then he broke the sheath of his sword, threw it away, advanced with his (naked) sword towards the enemy and fought (them) with it until he was slain.

The purpose of the suicide bomber is not just to kill himself but to kill the enemies of Islam. In the mathematics of the Islamic State, one the most effective ways to kill as many of their enemies is to accomplish it in this diabolical way. Their own death is accepted as a necessary sacrifice. The suicide bombers of the Islamic State believe that they are rewarded, not for dying, but for dying as a means for killing. The Islamic State honors these ones as martyrs because they died fighting for the cause of Allah.

WHY KILL MUSLIMS?

Perhaps the most convincing argument that some try to use to prove that the killings by the Islamic State are not Islamic is by pointing out that the Islamic State is also killing their fellow Sunni Muslims. If they are killing Muslims, then what they are doing is against Islam. Is this true? Using an alternative name for the Islamic State, President Barack Hussein Obama said:

“ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents.”

The implication here is that since the majority of the victims of the Islamic State are Muslims, therefore, these killings by the Islamic State cannot be Islamic. Like the President, Muslims also use this argument to distant the Islamic State from Islam.

Before we look into the Islamic reasons why the Islamic State is killing Muslims as well, it is vital to know that Islam is a blood-thirsty religion. It lives, strives and grows by shedding blood. It needs blood to survive. And when the blood of infidels becomes scarce, Islam will turn against its own. Islamic history shows that Umar, the second Caliph of Islam was assassinated in 644 C.E. The third Caliph, Uthman was murdered in 656 C.E. The fourth Caliph, Ali bAbi Talib was murdered in 66I C.E. Within a short period of just seventeen years, three successive Caliphs were murdered at the hands of Muslims themselves.

The killing of Muslims by the forces of the Islamic State does not mean that their actions are in opposition to the teachings of Islam. To the contrary, the killings are carried out because of Islam. The goal of the Islamic State is to establish Islamic rule earth-wide and to implement Sharia law in lands under their control. According to Islam, the world is divided into Dar al-Islam (the House of Islam) and Dar al-Harb (the House of War). Dar al-Islam refers to all those lands in which an Islamic government rules and the laws of Sharia prevail. Dar al-Harb is the outside world which has not yet been subjugated to Islam. The objective of Islam is to subjugate the outside world and bring it under the control of Dar al-Islam. Strictly speaking this means the Islamization of the entire world. This is the goal of the Islamic State.

Therefore, those Muslims who stand in opposition and do not join the Islamic State in their fight to establish the caliphate earth-wide can be targeted for execution with Allah’s approval. Those who do not fight for the cause of Allah are called “Hypocrites” in the Qur’an.

Surah 3:167: And the Hypocrites also. These were told: “Come, fight in the way of Allah, or (at least) drive the foe from your city.” They said: “Had we known how to fight, we should certainly have followed you.” They were that day nearer to Unbelief than to Faith, saying with their lips what was not in their hearts but Allah hath full knowledge of all they conceal. (Yusuf Ali)

Additionally, Muslims who do not submit strictly to the laws of Allah can also targeted for execution. And the Islamic State has become Allah’s executioner. According to the Qur’an, faithful Muslims are required to slay those who renegade from Islam.

Surah 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.” (Yusuf Ali)

In Islam, not only Muslims who leave their religion are considered as apostates but even those whose behavior goes contrary to the teachings of the Qur’an are considered as such. Muhammad had a man executed just for consuming alcohol. And he later made it a law in Islam to execute this form of punishment for those who are habitual drinkers. The fact that this form of punishment is not implemented today in Muslim nations does not mean it is not Islamic. These are the wrongs that the Islamic State is now correcting.

Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 38, Number 4467:

Narrated Mu’awiyah ibn AbuSufyan: The Prophet said: If they (the people) drink wine, flog them, again if they drink it, flog them. Again if they drink it, kill them.

Thus, individuals who act contrary to the teachings of Islam are viewed similarly as those who apostatize. “Hypocrisy” (Arabic: Nifaaq) means “Double-Facedness. It means a contradiction between one’s apparent and hidden self. Apparently the person is a believer (Muslim) but the inner self of the person is in disbelief. Thus, the term “Hypocrites” in the Qur’an refers both to those who renegade from Islam and also to those who deliberately fail to conform to the rulings and regulations of Islam while claiming to be Muslims. And Allah commands the faithful to slay the “Hypocrites.

Surah 9:73: O Prophet! Fight against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be harsh upon them. And their refuge is Hell, and wretched is the destination. (Umm Muhammad)

Therefore, it is not against the teachings of the Qur’an, when the Islamic State executes Muslims to defend the purity of Islam. It is absolutely Islamic.

As shown in this article, the Islamic State is solidly guided by the essential teachings of the Qur’an. Therefore, it is grossly inaccurate to say that the Islamic State is acting contrary to the teachings of the Qur’an. They are doing anything but that. The true teachings of Islam perfectly justify all the evil acts of the Islamic State. The Islamic State is simply giving life to the Qur’an by living what is taught within its pages. To criticize the Islamic State is to criticize Islam.

The Qur’an – the most unholy religious book – has turned men into monsters. The Qur’an has transformed men to become cold-blooded murderers, rapists, bandits and terrorists. Muslims commit the most evil crimes with an untroubled conscience because they are sanctioned in the Qur’an. As for Allah, he is too immoral to be the true God. And as for Muhammad, he terrorized and murdered people to spread his ideology. His actions are the actions of a ruthless man. The inspiration of the Islamic State comes from Allah, Muhammad and the Qur’an. Islam is a culture of death and destruction. And the Islamic State is now proving it for all to see.

The Holy Bible cautions:

Matthew 7:15-20: “Be on the watch for the false prophets who come to you in sheep’s covering, but inside they are ravenous wolves. By their fruits you will recognize them. Never do people gather grapes from thorns or figs from thistles do they? Likewise, every good tree produces fine fruit, but every rotten tree produces worthless fruit. A good tree cannot bear worthless fruit, nor can a rotten tree produce fine fruit. Every tree not producing fine fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Really, then, by their fruits you will recognize those men.

A rotten tree cannot bear good fruits. The true nature of Islam can be determined by the fruit it produces. And the fruits of Islam are evil. Evil can only begat evil. Terror groups like the Islamic State, Al Qaeda, Hamas, Black September, Boko Haram, and the Taliban have but one common denominator. They are all fruits from the same tree. And that tree is Islam.

Hosea 4:6: “My people perished because of lack of knowledge.”
