ISIS Is a Terrorist Organization Having No Connection to True Islam

We are faced with a fearsome terrorism that spills rivers of blood in the Islamic world, targets civilians in the middle of Europe and the most populous locations of the USA, and threatens the whole world without any regard to religion, race or ideology. This atrocity rears its ugly head sometimes as the PKK, sometimes as Boko Haram, sometimes as Al-Qaeda, sometimes as the YPG, sometimes as Shiite militia groups and sometimes as ISIS. The terrorist organizations we see resemble the tentacles of an octopus and all of them are controlled by a single mind. They target civilians, and tear apart the Middle East while striving towards making it impossible to live in the West. They deem shedding the blood of innocents an essential method.

Among the most atrocious ones of these organizations is ISIS, which has supposedly emerged in the name of Islam but massacred the highest number of Muslims. Yet, terrorism certainly has no place in the religion of Islam as described truly in the Qur’an. The so-called Islamic references that ISIS exploits for its brutal terrorism are actually certain fabricated superstitions and bigotry infused into Islam later on but are not compliant with the Qur’an and have no relevance with the religion of Islam communicated and practiced by the Prophet Muhammad (saas).

The fact that “Muslim” is written on the ID cards of the terrorists and those carrying Muslim names do not make these savages, who kill innocents without remorse, Muslims. And their murders can never be dubbed “Islamic terrorism.”

According to the Qur’anic moral values, a Muslim is obliged to treat other people, whether a Muslim or not, fairly and kindly, and to “forbid corruption on the earth”.

“God does not love corruption.” (Surat al-Baqara, 205) Killing a blameless person is one of the most flagrant examples of corruption. Killing a single person is the same as committing as big a crime as killing the entirety of humanity.

If someone kills another person – unless it is in retaliation for someone else or for causing corruption in the earth – it is as if he had murdered all mankind. And if anyone gives life to another person, it is as if he had given life to all mankind. (Surat al-Ma’ida, 32)

The Qur’an deems those who carry out massacres by using the name of Islam and calling them ‘jihad’ as murderers. No Muslim who has taken the verses of the Qur’an and the practices of our Prophet (saas) as his guide can commit such a crime.

Islam orders love, mercy and peace. On the subject of belief, Islam allows people complete liberty in a way that is precise and clear. The verses on this matter leave no room for any misinterpretation.

You have your religion and I have my religion. (Surat al-Kafirun, 6)

There is no compulsion where the religion is concerned. (Surat al-Baqara, 256)

God calls all people to adopt Islamic moral values as their model, through which mercy, compassion, understanding and peace will reign supreme over the earth:

You who have faith! Enter Islam totally. Do not follow in the footsteps of satan. (Surat al-Baqara, 208)
