ISIS, ISIL, or commonly referred to as Islamic State, was a State based on Islamic law also known as Shariah law.
Many Muslims say that Islamic State had nothing to with Shariah law. Is that true? Plenty of Westerners prefer to believe that as they accept hundreds of thousands of Muslims into their society and dabble with allowing Shariah law in their countries.
The truth is pretty simple, yet nuanced. One thing that can not be denied is that the Quran is extremely violent. Mohammed himself was an extremely violent man and leader.
Shariah law incorporates those lessons and is based on modeling one’s life after Mohammad. Therefore, many Muslims believe that Shariah law permits them to murder, rape and subjugate infidels, non-Muslims, just as Mohammad taught them to do in the Quran.
As the Quran states in chapter 9 (At-Tawba), verse 5:
“BUT WHEN THE FORBIDDEN MONTHS ARE PAST, THEN FIGHT AND SLAY THE PAGANS WHEREVER YE FIND THEM. SEIZE THEM, BELEAGUER THEM, AND LIE IN WAIT FOR THEM IN EVERY STRATAGEM (OF WAR); BUT IF THEY REPENT, AND ESTABLISH REGULAR PRAYERS AND PRACTICE REGULAR CHARITY, THEN OPEN THE WAY FOR THEM: FOR ALLAH IS OFT-FORGIVING…MOST MERCIFUL.”
Many people counter by saying that Islamic law is against killing the innocent. That is very much correct. However, according to Islam, the innocent refer only to Muslims to adhere to Shariah law. Everyone else, including, Muslims, are NOT innocent!
Islam is Varied
Yes, it is true, out of billions of Muslims in the world, they do not all associate with the sects of Islam that adhere to the strict word and laws of Shariah Law.
However, hundreds of millions of Muslims do adhere to these sects and that is a very big problem.
ISIS Commander Speaks Out
ISIS fighters have murdered, beheaded and raped – all in the name of Islam and Shariah law.
Meet one of the ISIS commanders who admits to having raped over 200 women and children and killing 900 people.
Yet there are countries in Europe and the West who are planning to rehabilitate these ISIS terrorists?
