The laws of Islam have never condoned indiscriminate killings of any people, destruction of their properties, or places of worship on any scale or at any time. The rights of non-combatants, elderly, women and children as well as the conduct that is demanded in such situations have been established in Al-Islam upon the Hadith related via the Muwatta of Al-Imam Malik, wherein the Holy Last Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) has said, “Do not kill women or children or an aged, infirm person. Do not cut down fruit-bearing trees. Do not destroy an inhabited place. 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.”
In the time of the rule of the second Khalifa of Al-Islam, Sayyidina Umar ibn Al-Khattab (may Allah be well-pleased with him), Al-Islam spread into the lands of Christians and those with ancient relics of past civilizations. Palestine was a Christian nation, yet the second Khalifa of Al-Islam mandated that the Muslims are disallowed from bullying their neighbors, desecrating their neighbors’ properties, and destroying the places of worship frequented by the Christians. The actions of the ISIS cult of death are in direct opposition to that of the second Khalifa of Al-Islam and that of the commands of the Holy Last Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah upon him). In this same period, Islam spread into Egypt, wherein world-known temples, tombs, and artifacts pertaining to the Pharaohs still exist up until this day. Notice how they were not demolished or declared places that “threaten the monotheism of Muslims.”
The recruiting efforts have been spreading recently to bring in youth into the ranks of these ISIS people in order to legitimize their actions and give them an Islamic appearance. The media has been active in portraying the senseless murders of Muslims by so-called “Muslims” to such an extent that the youth–who are being tricked by the ISIS propaganda–accept this as legitimate. There is nothing Islamic about the senseless killing of Muslims, driving them from their homes, and destruction of their property and places of worship! This is a falsehood by all accounts as Allah says in Holy Qur’an: “Whoever kills a believer intentionally, the reward for him is Jahannam (HELL) where he will reside forever! The Anger of Allah is upon him and Allah cursed him! And Allah has prepared an immense punishment for him!” (Surah An-Nisaa, Al-Ayah 93). Regardless of whether one is Muslim or not, the unlawful shedding of blood (regardless of being Muslim or non-Muslim) is prohibited in Al-Islam.
The Holy Last Messenger of Allah is Sayyidina Muhammad ibn Abdullah Al-Hashimi (peace and blessings of Allah upon him) and not the miscreant from Najd, Muhammad ibn Abdul-Wahhab—the founder of this cult of death. The Holy Last Messenger (peace be upon him) has said, “Abusing a Muslim is Fusouq (immoral & evil), and killing (a Muslim) is Kufr (an act of disbelief).” (Sahih Al-Bukhari); however, the latter, from An-Najd, declares that those who do not agree with his own demented system of beliefs are declared an apostate, a mushrik (polytheist), and that his blood is legal (reference: Kitab At-Tawhid, and also Nawaqis Al-Islam), and this is the mandate for the foundation of the Wahhabi religion as well as the so-called “Islamic State”, ISIS, that has evolved from extreme Wahhabism..
We have stated that these barbarians are not Muslims by their deeds that have been reported visually. At the same time reports of their daily actions have revealed that these people have nothing Islamic about them in their daily lifestyles, for they do not pray, do not talk about Islam, nor do they read Holy Qur’an. Combine this with the reality that they are receiving weapons from Israel (exposed via recent raids by Iraqi army and police), and it is simple to conclude that these butchers are neither Muslim nor have any connection to Islam and they operate under the mandate of a hidden hand with a totally different–and apparently opposite–agenda than that of Islam.
