There Is Nothing “Islamic” About ISIS

Iraqi Yazidi women who fled the violence in the northern Iraqi town of Sinjar, sit at a school where they are taking shelter in the Kurdish city of Dohuk in Iraq's autonomous Kurdistan region, on August 5, 2014. Islamic State (IS) Sunni jihadists ousted the Peshmerga troops of Iraq's Kurdish government from the northern Iraqi town of Sinjar, forcing thousands of people from their homes. The Yazidis, are a small community that follows a 4,000-year-old faith and have been repeatedly targeted by jihadists who call them "devil-worshipers" because of their unique beliefs and practices.

Humanity is dying.

ISIS fighters recently killed 19 Kurdish Yazidi women. They were burned alive in iron cages in one of the city squares in Mosul.

These women were executed for refusing to have sex with ISIS militants.

ISIS believes that it follows a “pure version” of Islam. They justify their crimes on the so-called tenets of their religion.

Yet, the Prophet Muhammad stated, “Only an honorable man treats women with honor and integrity, and only a vile and dishonorable man humiliates and degrades women.”

Yet, the Quran states, “O you who believe! You are forbidden to inherit women against their will. Nor should you treat them with harshness, that you may take away part of the dowry you have given them – except when they have become guilty of open lewdness. On the contrary live with them on a footing of kindness and equity. If you take a dislike to them, it may be that you dislike something and Allah will bring about through it a great deal of good.”

Yet, the Prophet Muhammad stated, “The believers who show the most perfect faith are those who have the best behavior, and the best of you are those who are best to their wives.”

ISIS has killed many women – completely innocent women – who were neither combatants nor armed. There is nothing “Islamic” about that. These women were killed for their faith, and there is nothing “Islamic” about that either. Jihad is a noble concept in Islam. By committing these heinous crimes, and acting with aggression, ISIS is in clear violation of the basic principles of the Islamic faith.

If you cannot “like” this post, at least share it to let the world know that there is nothing “Islamic” about ISIS.

  1. So these three unreferenced quotes prove that there is nothing Islamic about ISIS?

    What is really unIslamic about ISIS…the sex-slavery? Several verses in the Koran show that Mohammed was fine with making sex slaves of captured infidel women (eg 4:3). In fact he was all for it and even had a special term for them, “those whom your right hands possess”

    Or the burning? Mohammed was no slouch when it came to immolation. Witness his burning the houses, along with the inhabitants, of those who failed to attend prayer (Bukhari 1.11.626) or the torturing by fire of poor Kinana (Ishaq:515).

    Moreover, not only ISIS but any Muslim must believe that these unfortunate women’s troubles have only just begun. Throughout the Koran Allah goes into lurid detail about the eternity of fire all unbelievers can expect in hell (eg 4:56). ISIS were merely starting Allah’s work for him.

    Or the killing people for their faith? Mohammed wrote to the chief of the Christians of Aylah “Thou hast to accept Islam, or pay the tax, and obey God and his Messenger and the messengers of his Messenger….But be careful lest thou do not satisfy them, for then I shall not accept anything for you, but I shall fight you and take the young as captives and slay the elderly.” (The Covenants of the Prophet Mohammed with the Christians of the World by John Andrew Morrow p 54)

    Nothing Islamic about ISIS? Even the Muslim head of Religious Affairs at the BBC (not a hotbed of Islamophobia) Aaqil Ahmed has admitted it. Perhaps it’s time for the deniers like Cameron, Obama and Considine to reconsider their position.

  2. “ISIS believes that it follows a “pure version” of Islam. They justify their crimes on the so-called tenets of their religion.”

    Maybe Dr. Considine should try to convince ISIS members that they’re not, in fact, islamic and get them to stop raping and murdering innocent women instead of beating us, non-muslims, with the hammer of “ISIS is not islamic”.

  3. It’s a bit like that- the only thing required for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing- only with Islam the only thing that is required for it to triumph is that we continue to appease it. Every time a muslim complains about anything at all the liberal leftists scramble to ban that which has offended the Muslim. Muslims in canteens refuse to serve pork products and instead of sacking them, pork is removed from the menu. Bit by bit we are adjusting to Islam because those that are in a position to oppose it are misguided and too cowardly to say no.

  4. Here is the thing. Everything ISIS do is acting directly on the commandments written in the holy books of Islam: the Qu’ran, Hadith and Shariah.

    You can find very similar exhortations to misogyny, slavery and genocide in the Christian Bible, however Christians can explain why they no longer stone adulterers to death. I would therefore like to echo British Prime Minister David Cameron’s call for Muslims to explain to us exactly how ISIS are “un-Islamic”.
