ITS Podcast Session 1

The topics discussed were the following:
1. Hypocrisy of Freedom in the Western World.
2. Reflection on Islamophobia in France.
3. Hypocrisy of the Muslim Leaders.
4. The dangers of losing eeman over sympathizing with the disbelievers.

We also hosted guest speaker Abu Baraa from UK on our talk show. His discussion starts around 50:00 minute mark.

Blasphemy – The Islamic Response

Reflecting on the wisdom of the Qur’an and watching the events in Paris unfold, should give Muslims a boost of confidence about the truth of Islam. The truth which Allah mentions about the deceptive nature of the disbelievers and their plots against the Muslims. The truth about how they want to push us towards accepting their corrupt way of life.

“They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah refuses except to perfect His light, although the disbelievers dislike it.” [9:32]

This was clearly visible on the aftermath of the Paris Attacks when the leaders of the disbelievers, including the baby killer Benjamin Netanyahu all gathered to show solidarity with their ideology.

French Hypocrisy of Freedom

In France, the representatives of 40 nations gathered to show their solidarity in light of the Paris attacks. Each of these nations are enemies to each other, but are keen to unite when they can pin the blame on Islam and the Muslims. Their superficial unity only reveals their nature as opportunists. They gathered to wave their Freedom of Expression and Freedom of Speech, despite each and every one of these leaders violating these so-called principles in their own countries by gagging journalists and censoring “free speech” itself.

Muslims Raped by CIA

The majority of people understood that torture was used on Muslims in Guantanamo Bay, Poland, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and many other rendition (better known as kidnapping and interrogation) sites around the world. In fact, most people even supported these things because, in their gullible and media-manipulated minds, torture was even justified. The double standard is laughable. Any prisoner in America, no matter the extent of his crimes, is given due process at the very least. Yet there are people who are held in Guantanamo and CIA prisons throughout the world for years without charge or trial, as though someone locked them up and threw away the key for simply being Muslim. For some odd reason, so-called “Human Rights” and due process do not apply to these Muslims. Despite the absolute horror of their torture,

Most Commonly Used Arguments to Justify Voting in American Elections(SHIRK)

1. The participation of Prophet Yusuf, upon whom be peace, as a minister in the Government of the King of Egypt

Allah, the Most High, said:

“And the king said: “Bring him to me that I may attach him to my person.” Then, when he spoke to him, he said: “Verily, this day, you are with us high in rank and fully trusted.” [Yusuf] said: “Set me over the storehouses of the land; I will indeed guard them with full knowledge.” Thus did We give full authority to Yusuf in the land, to take possession therein, as when or where he likes.” 20

Fatwa on Voting

In order to be able to answer the urgent question of participating in the American Elections and voting for candidates who want to participate in congress or Senate we must understand the reality, for the Juristic principle states part of Judging a matter is comprehending it or understanding its reality. Therefore we must understand the reality of two things:

1- The American Congress and Senate where some candidates want to participate in and

2- The election which the people want to be involved in i.e. voting.

Voting: Path to Hellfire

At every election, like clockwork, the Muslim Ummah throws their support behind a candidate, and the Muslims are made into fools once again.  Why is it that we constantly find ourselves in this terrible position?  We make unrealistic expectations and project them onto these tawagheet, hoping that they somehow make life better for us if we elect them.  What does Islam say about voting, elections, and democracy in general?  What does Islam say about participating in these elections as voters, or even as candidates for US congressional seats etc.?

First, we must understand the reality regarding voting, elections, and politics in this country.  Namely, participation in the elections comes in two forms:

1)     Participating as a candidate
2)     Voting for a particular candidate.

So, what are the roles of candidates and what are their responsibilities?

They are described as legislative authorities, who convene to make laws and enact them once they are passed.  Their sources of legislation are either the American Constitution, the consensus of Congress, the consent of the voters, and their own opinions, backgrounds, and beliefs.

As for voting for candidates on a ballot, this vote entails endorsing the candidate’s right as a legislator (Law-maker).  By voting, you are supporting the framework of the election, and saying that you agree that the candidate you vote for, or whoever wins, has the right to make laws on your behalf.

Our aqeedah and tawheed as Muslims entails submitting, obeying, following, worshipping, and elevating Allah SWT only in every aspect of life including voting and electing.  This is the definition of ibadah, and it must be done exclusively, without associating Allah SWT or His attributes to anyone else.  For example, saying that George Bush is ar-Rahman is explicitly forbidden—an act of shirk which takes you outside of Islam; meaning, you become a kaafir.  As Muslims, our belief entails accepting Allah SWT as the sole Legislator , law-giver (al-Hakaim), with no one sharing in this authority ,right and attribute. إِنِ الْحُكْمُ إِلَّا لِلَّهِ )“Verily the absolute right of legislating is for none but Allah (SWT)” [EMQ 12:40]

And Allah (SWT) says: “It is unlawful for Believing male or female when Allah(SWT) and His Messenger(SAW) decree a command to have any choice but to abide with it and whosoever disobeys Allah or his Messenger went astray in plain mis-guidance” [EMQ 33:36]

So, the question is: Is voting in man-made systems such as democracy allowed in Islam? Would Allah SWT tell you that He is the sole Legislator and then accept that you give this right to a mere human?  On top of that, you give the right of legislation to a kaafir?   وَلَنْ يَجْعَلَ اللَّهُ لِلْكَافِرِينَ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ سَبِيلًا {141} . The negation particle ‘lan’ in the verse is emphatic and is grammatically known as the ‘negation of the future’ (li nafy al-mustaqbal).

So, Allah will never allow or want – ever – the enemies of the believers to establish themselves, preside over them or to dominate them (4:141).  How is it that we, the Muslims, would give the right of Legislation, of creating laws, to another person, to put them in power and authority instead of Almighty Allah SWT?  It is a mockery of Islam. Moreover,  to put a Kafir or even a Muslim in a legislative position in a kufr system is to take the Right of Allah SWT, to make Halal as Haram and Haram as Halal!

By voting, you fall into the trap of secularism.  Secularism states that God has sovereignty and rules only in heaven and inside the church, masjid, synagogue, temple etc. and Man has sovereignty on Earth.  The idea of mankind legislating for themselves can be summed up in the famous statement: the Rule is by the People, for the People, over the People.”

In Summary, the Congress or Senate is a body which legislates-makes LAWS; people are sovereign and the source of legislation, and Congressmen/women or Senators are chosen by the people to legislate-to make laws on their behalf.  Basically, they have the right to make haraam into halaal and vice versa!

The Islamic  verdict on the above:

1. Anybody who believes that almighty Allah (SWT) is not the only, exclusive Legislator and Commander is a disbeliever.

2. Anybody who believes in Almighty Allah (SWT) and associates anyone else with Him, contravening His being the sole legislator and commander is a Mushrik i.e. associates another as partner unto Allah (SWT).

3. Any Muslim who knowingly votes for a person who is a part of a legislative body, whether on the higher levels of Congress/Senate, or even on a city/town level, is an apostate-Murtaad.

4. Any Muslim who participates in elections to become a Congressman or Senator including on State or City level knowing the reality of Congress or Senate as a legislative House is an apostate.

5. Any Muslim who does not know the reality of Congress or Senate and then votes is sinful because he did not seek the divine ruling for his action before committing it. The Juristic Principle is that every action, verbal or physical, must be based on an Islamic ruling which is derived solely from the Qur’an and Sunnah.

6. Any Muslim who participates in voting for a candidate whether the candidate is basing his/her action on a misled so-called ‘opinion’ from a rationalist or secular clergyman has been misled and the issue must be explained to him/her. Believing that Allah (SWT) is the only legislator is a matter known from the Deen of Islam by necessity, therefore ignorance about it is not an excuse and he/she is therefore sinful.

7. The only excuse is for a person who is new Muslim or fully ignorant about what is known by necessity from the Deen of Islam due to the fact that he has grown up under kufr law and between non-Muslims. Those Muslims need the matter explained to them but if they continue to vote claiming that they have a different opinion from another person they are sinful.

As for the divine evidences for the above verdicts, they are derived from the fact that Allah (SWT) says: ‘They imitate the sayings of the disbelievers, Allah(SWT)’s curse be on them, how they are deluded away from the truth; They took their Rabbis and their Monks to be their Lords and Legislators besides Allah(SWT) and took the Messiah, the son of Mary, while they were commanded to worship, obey and follow none but one God/Allah; none has the right to be worshipped or followed and to legislate but he, praise and glory be to him from having the partners they associate with him.’30:31]

In addition, Allah (SWT) says in another clear-cut and explicit evidence that obeying any man-made system knowingly with consent for its source, different to Allah (SWT) is apostasy. For Allah (SWT) says;  ‘Or have they partners with Allah, who have legislated for them what Allah (SWT) has not decreed and had it not been for a decisive word the matter would have been judged between them and verily for the Polytheists and wrongdoers there is a painful torment’ [EMQ 42:21]

Therefore, whoever votes or follows any of those misguided legislators and gives them the vote enabling them to legislate has in fact chosen a Lord to Legislate for him and this is associating with almighty Allah SWT another legislator and commander.  One who does this has given up his belief in Allah SWT and committed shirk, the one crime for which Allah SWT deems there is no forgiveness!

Certainly, there is a reasonable amount of understanding for someone who is ignorant of the truth, or someone who does not realize he is committing shirk by voting. However, for the one who stands as a candidate, who wishes to take the right of Allah SWT as the Legislator and apply it to himself, what excuse does he have?  Can someone who calls people to vote, collects money for it, writes about it and distributes pamphlets, invites other congressmen and politicians to the Masaajid to speak on his behalf… can this person be called a Muslim after that?  How ironic is it that this so-called Muslim has no problem inviting the Senator or Councilman to the Masjid, but as soon as you mention the conflicts occurring in places such as Afghanistan, Pakistan and Palestine he immediately shuts you down and says, “Akhi, no politics in the Mosque.”  Then what exactly is the kaafir congressman doing there being showered with gifts, praises, and endorsements from you?

For one moment, push aside the Islamic viewpoint.  Many people claim that the benefit is too substantial NOT to vote.  If that’s the case, then ask yourself what exactly happened after Bush was voted out and Obama came to power.  Did things really change course?  Let us explore some examples.

1)     If Bush’s policy was war, then Obama’s has been war on steroids.  Muslims expected that Obama would end the wars, when in fact he opened up more fronts and put Drone attacks into overdrive.

2)    The casualties of the wars enacted under Bush’s regime are laughable compared to Obama’s.  In fact, Obama can boast 5 times as many dead civilians as Bush on his CV since he came into office.

3)     The Patriot Act, which practically destroys any Constitutional principles, was enacted by Bush and RENEWED by Obama.  Doesn’t the fact that the kuffar can change the laws any time they want worry you as a Muslim?  They would willingly go against even their own Constitution (a document considered almost sacred) to push laws in order to oppress you.  America, Dear Muslim, is simply a more civilized, better organized dictatorship.  This is the person you wanted to vote for?

4)     Just like under Bush, under Obama anyone can be detained INDEFINITELY without trial.  You can be locked in prison without ever being told why, without any trial, and the key to your cell can be thrown away.  We have to give some credit to Obama, however.  Under Bush, Saddam Hussein was at least captured and put on trial, even though it was a kangaroo court.  Obama is more ruthless than Bush.  Under Obama, certain individuals (al-Awlaki—an AMERICAN CITIZEN, Osama bin Laden) were simply assassinated.  No trial, no charges, no jury, no “justice.”  Even by their own standards, they are hypocrites.

The point we are trying to make is that it simply does not matter who wins the election.  Whether it is Romney, Obama, or some other person, the policies and ideology will stay the same.  The same people who are in the Pentagon now have been working for decades and shaping long-term policy.  Do you think the bureaucrats and executives who orchestrated and organized policies for decades will allow someone to simply get voted in and change their establishment?  They are far less concerned with whoever is in office than the public.  Obama cannot change decades-long policy in 2, 4, or even 8 years.  Nor does he really want to. 

Aside from the fact that it is pure shirk to vote in these elections, consider the examples we provided and think about whether there actually was any benefit. How beneficial was it that there were two troop surges in Afghanistan so that American soldiers can continue their crimes against humanity?  How much benefit is there in being caught by a bullet from a drone?  Is there really benefit in living in fear here at home, wondering if you’ll be swept off the street and stashed into a prison?

Did the Prophet PBUH care about benefit?  He could have easily deferred to the senators and congressmen of his time such as Abu Lahab, Abu Jahl, Omaya bin Khalaf and “voted” for the causes they espoused. The mushrikeen were offering him(SAW) women, gold, kingship and the keys to Mecca to stop establishing Islam.  . Instead, he(SAW) rejected all their offers wholeheartedly, choosing only Allah SWT as his Legislator and encouraging Islam. Today, we have the opposite: Muslims are beggars, giving up parts of Islam they deem inconvenient, rushing to  compromise and twist Islam in order to please the kuffar.  Allah SWT has completed our Deen for us, and given us a political, economic, judicial, social system completely independent of man-made ideologies such as democracy/capitalism.

In a society that is veering toward fascism, the only option we have as Muslims living in the West is to invite people to Islam through intellectual and political means, and bring about change by offering Islam as the only solution to the problems we face today.  Muslims do not realize that this Islam is unique as it offers a solution to the destitute situation that society finds itself in today.  Islam did not simply come for Muslims, or for a certain ethnicity or tribe, but it is a complete system of governance for Muslims AND non-Muslims.

If one needs to gain perspective on what is right and wrong, then one should not look any further than the divine laws encoded in the Shariah based on Quran and Sunnah.

Do the Muslims realize that the West already knows for itself that Capitalism is dying?  Do the Muslims realize that Islam is the only solution for the West?  By now, they should realize that Islam is the next dominating ideology.  Why would they adopt inferior ways of life such as Capitalism and Democracy when Allah SWT sent his Messenger PBUH with a complete way of life; Islam carries a social system, a political system, a punitive system, a judicial system, an economic system, a foreign policy… everything which makes a nation is encoded in the Shariah.  Even then, the Muslims look to man-made systems for guidance instead of the Quran and Sunnah-that is sad! Our attitude and purpose of Islam is clearly defined by Allah(SWT), and we have to submit to that without any ifs and buts!‘…Verily Allah sent the Messenger with the Deen of guidance and truth (Tawheed+Shariah) in order to dominate over all other Deens (i.e. religions; such as Christianity, Hinduism and Judaism and ideologies; such as capitalism and Communism) even if the idolaters dislike it…[EMQ 9:33]

ITS is an Islamic ideological and political organization which is working to establish Islam in its totality i.e. Tawheed+Shariah-Islamic system , Islamic way of life through an intellectual and a political struggle i.e. non-violent means!  Islam is the only solution and the way forward.  Learn how Islam can offer a solution to all of your personal problems as well as those that affect society.  We invite you to seek a better way of life and question the roots of your government.  We encourage you to seek alternative solutions to the problems facing society today.  Islam will eradicate poverty, Islam will bring true justice, and it will liberate society from the shackles of man-made law.

It’s the defining moment in the history of Islam like Badr:
Either you stand for Islam and your identity FIRMLY, or the kuffar will define Islam for you and you lose it completely.

A Salutation of Eid ul-Adha to the Noble Islamic Ummah

Eid-ul Adha Mabrok to the Nobal Ummah of Muhammad sallahu alahi walahi wasalam

Imam Shafi’ said, “All humans are dead except those who have knowledge … and all those who have knowledge are asleep, except those who do good deeds … and those who do good deeds are deceived, except those who are sincere … and those who are sincere are always in a state of worry.”

“O you, who believe! Fear Allah (swt) as HE (swt) should be feared, and die not except in a state of Islam. And hold fast all of you together to the rope of Allah (swt) and be not divided amongst yourselves.” (Ali-Imran 3:101-102)

On the day Eid-ul-Adha we will notice that the Muslims in the different places of the world will celebrate Eid on different days. Some will celebrate on Satureday and some are going to be celebrating on Sunday or may be on Monday?

According to the hadith of the Prophet (saw) the next day of Arafat is the day that we should celebrate Eid. Bukhari, 5/17, Abu Dawood: Manasik 71… Muslim: Kitaab Eidein ….. All of them refer to the day of 10th of Zulhijjah as the Day of Eid-ul-Adha. However the hadith which is narrated by Ibn Majah V2 Kitaab As-Siyaam, Chapter 9 Hadith No. 1659 Subject of: The two days of Eid: Hadathana Muhammad Bin Omar Al-Muqri, Hadathana Ishaq Bin I’ssa Hadathana Hammad Bin Zaid from Ayoub from Muhammad Bin Sireen from Abu Hureirah (ra) said: The Messenger (saw) said: “(Eid) Al-Fitr is the day you break your fast and (Eid) Al-Adha is the Day you Slaughter.”

Some will celebrate Eid on the 4th of October and some on the 5th th or 6th of October instead of celebrating as one united Ummah and even within the USA Muslims will probably celebrate on two different days. These differences show there is something missing and that there most definitely is a problem when we Muslims cannot agree on when to celebrate Eid-ul-Adha on ONE universal day worldwide when in fact it is possible to determine it TEN days ahead. Though we repeatedly claim that we are all Muslims, with one Aqeedah and are one brotherhood, why are there then these differences existing amongst Muslims in different parts of the world?

Allah (swt) says in the Qur’an, “The believers are brothers.” (Al-Hujurat 49:10)

While we will be busy celebrating Eid just spare a thought for the Muslims worldwide who are suffering by the kuffar -the massacred Muslim found in Kosovo, Chechnya, Kashmir, Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan, Somalia and Sudan and the innocent women, children and men who have been and who are butchered by the West, the Crusaders and its Puppets for the last century, the deprived, orphaned children in Syria Iraq and Afghanistan, the Muslim sisters are raped and demonized in Kashmir, Bosnia, Kosovo and Chechnya, the sisters being denied basic human rights to education in Turkey, Canada and France because of their Islamic clothing, the list is endless yet the solution to the problems is no nearer.

The Prophet (saw) said “One drop of a Muslim blood is worth more than the Ka’bah and it’s surroundings” (Bukhari and Muslim).

If someone were to bomb and destroy the Kaa’ba there would be an outcry amongst the Muslims worldwide and they would speak as one entity yet they remain silent and don’t move while these endless atrocities are taking place every minute of every hour of every day and Muslim blood is shade in the name of TERRORISM while the Muslim Ummah is silently watching! We Muslims are thinking by our emotions and not by what Islam teaches us to do. It is a shameful day for the Ummah of Muhammad (saw) being a silent spectator on the face of murder, rape and genocide of our mothers, sons, daughters, brothers and elders.

So why do we Muslims lack a basic bond of brotherhood and unity amongst ourselves when our Aqeedah, our binding force is so strong? The fact that as Muslims we are discussing the issue of UNITY, or the lack of it, in context of as an Ummatun-Wahida (ONE Nation) suggests that as an Ummah we are largely disunited. Therefore, if we cast a glance over the Ummah of RasoolAllah (saw) today, this notion is proven to be correct. One Ummah NO LONGER occupies that stance of Ummatun-Wahida. Instead Our Blessed Land has been broken into pieces which has caused smaller entities that are disunited and divided and which has caused Muslims to loose their identity. They BECAME Pakistani, Kuwaitis and Jordanian first and Muslims second.

Disunity, division, and disarray have arisen not just as a mere Coincidence. The fall of Muslims from the “best nation sent to mankind” is a direct result of the massive military, cultural and missionary invasion of the Muslim world by the kuffar, the disbelievers to the extent that the Muslim Land was broken up and certain systems, ideologies-ideas and thoughts were placed, infringed and enforced upon our lands which remain to this day.

Foreign concepts and ideas have been confused with the ideology of Islam. Our countries and their puppet regimes are controlled by the Western world and are there to serve anything but the needs of the Muslims. They rule by what benefits them not what the Qur’an and Sunnah say. Indeed the situation that we are in today where we are over 57 countries divided by artificial borders imposed on us by those who destroyed our Islamic Identity (Khilafati-Usmania) on 3rd March, 1924 is one of dismay.

The situation today is completely unacceptable, and we are obliged as an Islamic Ummah to regain our authority from these rulers and reestablish again an Islamic leadership which would implement Shar’iah law through the Khilafah.

The prophet (saw) said,

“The knots of Islam will be broken one after the other, the first knot to be broken is the knot of ruling, the last is the knot of prayer.” (Muslim)

The knot of ruling was broken in 1924 by the destruction of the Khilafah, now it seems the knot of Salah is also in danger and now the celebration of Eid-ul Adhathat cannot even be celebrated on one day-what else is left?

O Muslims let us be part of the unified body of the Muslim Ummah, we cannot be divorced from each other and we should not give any organization (UN) or an individual the chance to disassociate ourselves from the rest of the global Ummah. Let us work on implementing the Aqeedah and Shar’ iah of celebration of Eid together as One united, strong, fearless Ummah.

Allah (swt) clearly states:
“Allah has promised those who have believed are performed the good deeds, that He will of a surely grant them authority on the Earth, as He granted it to those before them and that He established an authority their Deen which He had chosen for them and that He will change their state of fear into one of peace and security.” (An-Nur 24:55)

Unity is not a dream: it will be a visible (Insha’Allah) as Allah (swt) does not legislate dreams in Qur’an Al-Karim. Islam must be established through an intellectual and a political struggle (Amr Bil Maruf Wa Nahi Anil Munkr) no matter wherever we are in order to bring this unity and establish Islam in its totality.

Unity is what we must strive for: not on the basis of what is desirable, rather, on the basis of it being an Islamic Obligation. It is defined clearly by Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw), it is an obligation upon us to tear down the borders and boundaries that are currently dividing our Ummah. It is an Obligation that we dismantle the kufr concepts that cast a shadow over our Minds and Lands, and it is an Obligation that we must UNITE the Blessed Muslim Lands as One Land, One Ummah under One State i.e. Khilafah. Victory (by the will of Allah) will be granted to this Ummah by the grace of Allah (swt) as long we strive for and follow Quran and Sunnah insha’Allah through an Intellectual a Political struggle-nonviolent means!

We will never be Silent!

The Lies Against Islamic State

NOTE: Every story has two sides. It is in the interest of being fair and just to listen to both sides. We wish to present the other side of America’s War on Terrorism from an Islamic and political perspective.


President Barak Obama in his latest speech has officially declared war on the Islamic State. As if this wasn’t enough of a warning of the enemies gathering, he also has asked to seek assistance from other Muslim nations to join his war.


He stated in his speech that he would:

  1. Deliver more cowardly aerial attacks killing innocent Muslims  as Collateral Damage
  2. Strengthen Iraqi/Kurdish military by offering intelligence and logistics for ground offensives.
  3. Provide more military support to moderate FSA rebels against Islamic State
  4. Seek alliance and collaboration with Muslim countries at the behest of the sellout rulers to attack other Muslims.


The storm is gathering once again, oh Muslims, as was predicted by the Prophet s.a.w. when he said in the famous sahih hadith about wahn:

“The People will soon summon one another to attack you from every place in the same way that a pack calls around its prey” Someone asked, “Will that be because of our small numbers at that time?” He replied, “No, you will be numerous at that time: but you will be froth and scum like that carried down by a torrent (of water), and Allah will take the fear of you from the breasts (hearts) of your enemy and cast al-wahn into your hearts.” Someone asked, “O Messenger of Allah , what is al-wahn?” He replied, “Love of the world and dislike of death.” [Reported by Abu Dawud & Imam Ahmad]

Reflecting on this hadith we can clearly see how the United States Government, Syrian Government, Russian Government, Iranian Government, as well as the Saudi Government all are gathering to attack the Islamic State. Saudia Arabia has said it would allow the presence of US aircrafts to have airspace rights.

“On the military front, the State Department official said regional defense ministers would meet soon to discuss expanded basing and overflight rights so the United States and other nations could broaden their airstrikes against ISIS.”1

Many of the Arab nations have agreed to provide some sort of support to the United States on its newest mission.  There is no deception in Islam. What these Muslim nations have signed up for is to sell their souls to the enemies of Islam. Islam makes it crystal clear of the prohibition of allying with the disbelievers to fight Muslims.

Certainly, Palace Scholars will emerge from every direction, looking to pick up any crumbs of acceptance that the kuffar will give them. Why is it so difficult for these $cholars to tell the truth for once?

Based on the clear verses of the Qur’an, any Muslim nation, including its armies, that join the armies of the kuffar, provide bases and any sort of intelligence to the coalition, has committed apostasy. Muslim  scholars who encourage joining the disbelieving coalition or being under their leadership and command to fight the Islamic State have committed the highest sin of apostasy (kufr).

Any Muslim(s) around the world who bang the drums of war for Obamas marching band will be walking the line of apostasy. Muslims should seek a meaningful Islamic perspective before making any judgments on other Muslims who are trying their best to establish a society based on Islam. These people have lived under oppression for decades but we immediately write them off as khawarij despite lacking evidence to say so.

Allah subhana wa ta’Ala says in t he Qur’an:

” O you who believe! Take not My enemies and your enemies (i.e. disbelievers and polytheists, etc.) as friends, showing affection towards them, while they have disbelieved in what has come to you of the truth (i.e. Islāmic Monotheism, this Qur’ān, and Muhammad SAW), and have driven out the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) and yourselves (from your homeland) because you believe in Allāh your Lord! If you have come out  in My Cause and to seek My Good Pleasure, (then take not these disbelievers and polytheists, etc., as your friends). You show friendship to them in secret, while I am All-Aware of what you conceal and what you reveal. And whosoever of you (Muslims) does that, then indeed he has gone (far) astray, (away) from the Straight Path. [60:1]

O you who believe! Take not as (your) Bitanah (advisors, consultants, protectors, helpers, etc.) those outside your religion (pagans, Jews, Christians, and hypocrites) since they will not fail to do their best to corrupt you. They desire to harm you severely. Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse. Indeed We have made plain to you the Ayāt (proofs, evidences, verses) if you understand. (Aali Imran 3:118)

Let not the believers take the disbelievers as Auliya(supporters, helpers, etc.) instead of the believers, and whoever does that will never be helped by Allah in any way…[3:28]

” And when it is said to them: “Make not mischief on the earth,” they say: “We are only peacemakers.” [2:11]

Even if one disagrees with Islamic State, Islam does not allow the alliance with the disbelieving army to fight them.

And if two parties or groups among the believers fall to fighting, then make peace between them both, but if one of them rebels against the other, then fight you (all) against the one that which rebels till it complies with the Command of Allāh; then if it complies, then make reconciliation between them justly, and be equitable. Verily! Allāh loves those who are equitable.” [49:9]

“The believers are nothing else than brothers (in Islāmic religion). So make reconciliation between your brothers, and fear Allāh, that you may receive mercy.” [49:10]


Islamic State are the KHAWARIJ?

This seems to be the so-called factor that makes every Muslim turn their backs on the mujahedeen who have sacrificed their lives to bring about honor and dignity back to the Ummah, and defend the oppressed people of Iraq and Syria.

How easily do the Ummah forget the atrocities of the US government of human sanctions in the early 90s which have killed over 500,00 Iraqi children due to starvation. Then the WMD that were dropped on them which killed another 100,000. How easily they forget the treacherous Shia gov’t of Maliki which the US put upon the Iraqis that brought about the Shia Death Squads who killed and tortured many women and children with electric drills. How easily they forget Assad and his Shabbia Thugs that killed, and tortured Muslims of Syria.

Who were the Khawarij2

The Khawarij made takfeer of the sahabah– The Islamic State not only refuses to make takfeer of the sahabah, but are from the foremost of people in defending their honor, fighting the Rafidah Shi’ites and the Allawites.

The Khawarij made takfeer of Muslims due to sins—Nowhere in the actions or statements from any of those now slandered with the moniker “Kharijee” do we find such innovated belief.

The khawarij separated from the jama’ah—The Islamic State have called for the Muslims to unite upon the truth, and fight the enemies of Islam such as the secularists, Ba’athists, and the Rafidah.

The Khawarij rebelled against the legitimate Muslim rulers who ruled according to Share’ah, based on sins or what they perceived as such—The Islamic State has not rebelled against any legitimate authority. In fact, they have been fighting the corrupt regimes and actually have military power to fight them instead of rag-tag attacks which cause no benefit. Islamic State fights them due their ruling according to man-made laws instead of Share’ah, and their cooperation with the enemies of Islam.

The Khawarij fought Muslims and left alone the kuffar—The Islamic State are fighting the foremost enemy of Islam, the head of kufr, shirk, and apostasy. Wherever there are Muslims being oppressed by the kuffar, they are sent there for its liberation.

Let’s take a deeper look into the propaganda of this claim that they are killing civilians, raping women, or even the claim that they are ‘CIA’ agents. We want to present the ‘other’ side of the story. Before we expose this propaganda, we must question our sources for news. The same Zionist propaganda press that lies against Palestinians is responsible for disseminating lies against the Islamic State. Everyone agrees that the ground situation in Gaza is wholly fabricated, yet we are quick to believe this same source when it comments on the Islamic State? Why trust the same source on one issue and not the other? We need to have an open mind and realize that there are 2 sides to every story, while also remembering that there is a vested interest in demonizing the Islamic State.

Claim: Islamic State kills civilians?

The Islamic State media outlet does not hide its propaganda on who they kill. They widely propagate their execution with high quality glossy videos and keep noted documents of it. The internet is full of IS execution videos, particularly of which areas they took over, who they have captured, and who they are executing. Even Western intelligence and experts admit to this.

So why is it that NONE of their civilian executions are caught on tape? If they are not afraid to hide who they are killing, where is the evidence? It’s quite simple, the ‘civilians’ they are killing are actually the soldiers and agents of their enemies. The IS has a policy of executing their POW. They make this well-known. While some of the other factions fighting against the Assad regime in Syria may be more lenient towards their captors, Islamic State does not have any such policy. Their reasons for being so adamant is due to the atrocities they have experienced for decades under the hegemony of the United States and the Assad regime. The Islamic State is simply applying the Islamic ruling to those who have committed heinous crimes against an innocent population. Why is it that their justice is constantly under a microscope? We are quick to judge while having no evidence.

Take for example a famous video which was broadcasted on all major media outlets to show the ‘brutality’ of Islamic State’s policy on civilians. It is purported to show that IS were killing Shia civilians on highway drive by shooting. (Source: Al Furqan Media – Clanging of the Swords) If one were to watch the whole documentary of the Islamic State which the clip was taken from, they would know that those who were being targeted were Iraqi Gov’t members who took part in oppressing the Sunnis of Iraq. They were selective targets from a list the IS had obtained. The people targeted were known criminals of the Iraqi government.

Then there is another clip (Source: Al Furqan Media- Cutting Assads Supply Line) which shows a transport truck being pulled over on a highway by the Islamic State. The Allawite men are being questioned. Some of the questions are of religious nature. Then they are shown being executed. Once again, if one watched the whole documentary, they would have seen what the members of the Islamic State found out from the documents obtained of the truck drivers. They were on route to transporting military gear for Assads army. Does this make them khawarij? If they applied their state law to these people whom they charged with a crime, why don’t they have a right to administer justice on their terms, especially if they’re applying the Shar’ee rules?

If the Muslims are sincere and neutral minded from the media propaganda, and would like to find out for themselves the truth, then we suggest to them a watching a small clip from the documentary on Youtube called “The Light Revelations Part 23”. In that clip it clarifies:

1. Is it the policy of Islamic State to kill Muslims and innocent civilians?

2. Do mistakes of mujahideen bar them from being Muslims who deserve baraa’ and being distanced from by favoring the murtadeen and kaafireen?

3. Does the fitnah between two Muslim groups make one khawarij?

4. Was the fight between Ali r.a. and Muawiyah r.a. a fight between a Muslim and a khawariji?

5. Does Islamic State kill who they do not agree with?

6. Did Islamic State order circumcision upon all women of Mosul in Iraq?

7. Did Islamic State order the beheading of children?

8. Does Islamic State commit “Genocide”  “Massacre” of Christians?

9. Does Islamic State force non-Muslims to “Convert” or “Die”?

10. Does Islamic State order the rape and murder of Yazidis?

11. Debunking the claim that Islamic State’s leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is a Mossad Agent.

The grave consequence of accusing Muslims of being an agent of the kuffar is basically making takfir on them. We Muslims should be extra cautious when accusing others of being agents or traitors.


Does the Islamic State have a Right to Exist?

For more than 60 years, the pirate state of Israel has existed as a Jewish-Zionist entity. They are a self-described “Jewish-Democratic” state. The mantra of every pro-Israeli is that they have a right to exist, despite their half-century’s worth of murder. Their atrocities in Gaza are well-documented. If it’s alright for a Jewish State to exist, why is it wrong for an Islamic State to exist? Why is there a double-standard?

Within hours of the declaration of the Khilafah, every coconut scholar had something to say about them. What is the Islamic evidence from these so-called scholars on their ruling for the Islamic State? For 60 years, they didn’t have the courage to say one word about Gaza, or Afghanistan, or Iraq. They were perfectly content with their jar of honey and their packet of condoms whilst living so comfortably in their ivy towers in the West. While the Muslims around the world are being skinned alive, they said nothing. When the Khilafah is declared, suddenly they peek out of their palaces to wave their fingers in condemnation.

The fact is that there is widespread tolerance for everything. Except Islam. As Muslims, why are we opposed to something which is legislated by Allah SWT? Think deeply on this, brothers and sisters, as this is a matter too important to ignore. Please seek the truth through evidence in all matters.

Press Release: Obama to Urge Muslims to Fight Islamic State

*** URGENT: ***

Obama is to deliver a televised speech on Wednesday, September 10 where he will urge the Muslim nations to unite under his 10-Nation coalition to attack the Islamic State.

We are trying to raise awareness of the severe nature of this event and would like to initiate a social media campaign immediately.

We want the scholars and du’aat who are upon the haqq to come together and declare the obvious before it’s too late.

We are not waiting for palace scholars to make a fatwa against joining the fight because that will never happen.

Something as clear as this needs to be reminded to the Muslims.

So we hereby declare based on the clear verses of the Qur’an that any Muslim nation, including its armies that join the disbelieving coalition, or Muslim scholars who encourage joining the disbelieving coalition, being under their leadership and command to fight the Islamic State has committed a sin to the highest degree – apostasy.

Allah subhana wa ta’Ala says in the Qur’an:


” O you who believe! Take not My enemies and your enemies (i.e. disbelievers and polytheists, etc.) as friends, showing affection towards them, while they have disbelieved in what has come to you of the truth (i.e. Islāmic Monotheism, this Qur’ān, and Muhammad SAW), and have driven out the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) and yourselves (from your homeland) because you believe in Allāh your Lord! If you have come out for jihad in My Cause and to seek My Good Pleasure, (then take not these disbelievers and polytheists, etc., as your friends). You show friendship to them in secret, while I am All-Aware of what you conceal and what you reveal. And whosoever of you (Muslims) does that, then indeed he has gone (far) astray, (away) from the Straight Path. [60:1]


O you who believe! Take not as (your) Bitanah (advisors, consultants, protectors, helpers, etc.) those outside your religion (pagans, Jews, Christians, and hypocrites) since they will not fail to do their best to corrupt you. They desire to harm you severely. Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse. Indeed We have made plain to you the Ayāt (proofs, evidences, verses) if you understand. (Aali Imran 3:118)


Let not the believers take the disbelievers as Auliya(supporters, helpers, etc.) instead of the believers, and whoever does that will never be helped by Allah in any way…[3:28]



” And when it is said to them: “Make not mischief on the earth,” they say: “We are only peacemakers.” [2:11]

Even if one disagrees with Islamic State, Islam does not allow the alliance with the disbelieving army to fight them.


And if two parties or groups among the believers fall to fighting, then make peace between them both, but if one of them rebels against the other, then fight you (all) against the one that which rebels till it complies with the Command of Allāh; then if it complies, then make reconciliation between them justly, and be equitable. Verily! Allāh loves those who are equitable. [49:9]


The believers are nothing else than brothers (in Islāmic religion). So make reconciliation between your brothers, and fear Allāh, that you may receive mercy. [49:10]
