Muslim condemnation of ISIS

Condemnation of ISIS

I as a Muslim condemn the actions of ISIS.

To all those ranting that there is absolute silence from the Muslim quarter on the atrocities of ISIS, here is your called for condemnation on your favourite website. If you had just taken 10 seconds to Google : “Muslims condemn ISIS” you would have found 150 000 relevant results. You may do the same for Boko Haram and the countless other extremists.  So please remove your head from the sand and acknowledge that the vast majority of Muslims have distanced themselves from the actions and ideologies of ISIS.

Some may retort that verbal condemnation is not enough; we need to see you actively marching in the streets clamouring for the removal of ISIS! Well, if you can show me where I can find ISIS’s embassy I won’t only march there I’ll be the first to storm it.

As Obama says, “ISIS is a cancer”.  I fully agree but I’d like to add that American Foreign Policy is one of the major causes of the spread of said cancer. The current situation in Iraq is analogous to a patient that gets cancer due to a mixture of radiation poisoning, unhealthy eating habits, alcohol and tobacco usage and now needs to be treated with even more radiation and chemotherapy or most likely surgery.

In conclusion ISIS may claim to have revived the Khalifat but there ideology, brutality and actions do NOT live up-to the demands of such a noble office but also go against the very grain of Islam brought by Our Noble Messenger(SAW). I wonder how they shall face Our Beloved Leader Muhammed (SAW) who is reported to have said:

“Beware, if anyone wrongs a contracting man (Non-Muslim citizen of an Islamic state), or diminishes his right, or forces him to work beyond his capacity, or takes from him anything without his consent, I (Muhammed) shall plead for him(The Non-Muslim) on the Day of Judgment. "  (Sunan Abu Dawood)

For a further discussion of the rights and responsibilities of Non-Muslim Citizens under an Islamic Khilafat you may refer to the work of Bassam Zawadi. Google: “the status of non-Muslims in the Islamic state”

Thanks for your article and condemnation. In light of your last two paragraphs, please comment on this news from earlier in this week, and I will just paste the relevant bit: "Saudi Arabia has introduced a series of new laws which define atheists as terrorists, according to a report from Human Rights Watch."

Oh really, Why don't you tell us how and who funds muslim extremists They come from your society so you will definitely know them If you say muslims don't know, then who will??? It is not the world's responsibility to stop muslim extremists It's YOUR responsibility, why? because you are muslin If you say you don't know who the islamists are in your own circle of friends and family...who will know? ???

The vast majority still gives money that somehow is channeled to these murderers and idiots. Time to face the truth.

Where do you march to? Since when did muslims need a venue to protest in the streets? Gather around your mates and fellow muslims, contact CNN, BBC et al, put up signs where you call for the deaths of ISIS members - and only then will I believe you're genuine.

Good to read.

Thank you Bilo. Good to know that the moderate Muslims denounce the atrocities. The problem is that for as long as there are extremists in ANY religion, we will have atrocities... and when atrocities are committed in the name of a religion, then surely it is time to dump that religion...
