We Are Not At War With Islam

Three questions ISIS must answer if “Islamic”

–part 1 (scientific questions!)

The self-declared “Islamic State” (known as: ISIS/ISIL) has risen a lot of questions since its establishment in 1999 by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and the latest by Al-Baghdadi on 29 June 2014.  According to Islamic Scholars (a majority) would concede the fact that “Islamic State” has to answer a lot of significant, in-depth questions considering its’ basis in the Islamic world. To Name a few, Professor Prof. Abdul-Rahman Abbad, Sheikh Wahid Abdul-Jawad, Prof. Ibrahim Abdul-Rahim, Prof. Sheikh Abdul Nasser Abu Al-Basal, Dr. Majdi Ashour, Dr. Hatem Bazian, Prof. Caner Dagli, Sheikh Hamza Yusuf Hanson, the list goes on and on.

For that matter, its’ best that we keep questioning ISIS too. Because we cannot simply accept A “State” by which Unislamic principles are considered to represent “Mainstream Islam” to the people around the world.

In this way

Through my findings, let us start with one major subject of debates these days:

The Issuing of Numerous Fatwas:

It is forbidden in Islam to issue fatwas without all the necessary learning requirements. Even then fatwas must follow Islamic legal theory as defined in the Classical texts. It is also forbidden to cite a portion of a verse from the Qur’an—or part of a verse—to derive a ruling without looking at everything that the Qur’an and Hadith teach related to that matter. In other words, there are strict subjective and objective prerequisites for Fatwas, and one cannot ‘cherry-pick’ Quranic verses for legal arguments without considering the entire Qur’an and Hadith.

 

  1. What is the purpose of the “Islamic” State in issuing Fatwas in a manner that most scholars in Islam cannot verify its cause?

 

It is forbidden in Islam to harm or mistreat—in any way—Christians or any ‘People of the Scripture’:

 

Regarding Arab Christians, you gave them three choices: jizyah (poll tax), the sword, or conversion to Islam. You painted their homes red, destroyed their churches, and in some cases, looted their homes and property. You killed some of them and caused many others to flee their homes with nothing but their clothes on their backs. “God does not forbid you in regard to those who did not wage war against you on account of religion and did not expel you from your homes that you should treat them kindly and deal with them justly. Assuredly God loves the just.’ (Al-Mumtahanah, 60: 8).”

 

  1. In accordance with the Islamic teachings and Quran how/why can you treat them as enemies?

 

The revival of Slavery:

No scholar of Islam disputes that one of Islam’s aims is to abolish slavery,

According to Quran: “God says: ‘And what will show you what the obstacle is?, the freeing of a slave, or to give food on a day of hunger’ (Al-Balad, 90: 12-14); and: ‘… then [the penalty for them is] the setting free of a slave before they touch one another …’ (Al-Mujadilah, 58: 3).” After a century of Muslim consensus on the prohibition of slavery, you have violated this; you have taken women as concubines and thus revived strife and sedition, and corruption and lewdness on the earth.

 

  1. You have resuscitated something that the Shari’ah has worked tirelessly to undo and has been considered forbidden by consensus for over a century. Why?

 

As the above questions are raised every single day, the so-called Islamic state continues to destroy and devaluate the REAL ISLAM under A “Wahabi Brand” of Islam which is widely supported by Saudi Arabia (OUR ALLY!).

I am not an expert on Islam; But ISIS does claim to be the “sole true” expression of Islam and the prophet.

    yes there are lots of serious questions the Isis must answer . as the Muslims said to me the true Islam recommended Muslims to be careful about the human rights and be kind to all even the disbelievers.

    I agree with you 100 percent. I think the truth about Isis is that it tries to devastate the true Islam through a tornado of bigotry and falsehood. it is up to the Muslim communities to clarify the truth about Islam and the differences it has with the one ISIS presents to the world.
