Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem.
Terrorists are not Muslims, they are “Kharij” rebellious sinners who deviated from Main group of Muslims and their Imams.
Islam is Love,Mercy,brotherhood, keeping peace,law and order in the society!
Terrorists deny Allah’s Sovereign Authority!. They do not struggle (jihad) against their own ego and purify it!. They are not happy with what ALLAH has chosen for them!.
Islam only allows peaceful protest against the oppressors and military jihad only under the authority of the Muslim Caliph/Imam against invasions and destructions!
Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said:
Saheeh al Bukhari:Book 89 Judgements
Narrated Anas bin Malik: Allah’s Apostle said, “You should listen to and obey, your ruler even if he was an Ethiopian (black) slave whose head looks like a raisin.”
Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: The Prophet said, “If somebody sees his Muslim ruler doing something he disapproves of, he should be patient, for whoever becomes separate from the Muslim group even for a span and then dies, he will die as those who died in the Pre-lslamic period of ignorance (as rebellious sinners)
Narrated ‘Abdullah: The Prophet said, “A Muslim has to listen to and obey (the order of his ruler) whether he likes it or not, as long as his orders involve not one in disobedience (to Allah), but if an act of disobedience (to Allah) is imposed one should not listen to it or obey it.
And revolutionary Jihad can be done only by the approval of the Imams of the greater majority of Muslims!
What is allowed for a Muslim to do in the time of injustice and oppression is to command (say loudly) to the ruler to be justice!
Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam said: “It is a struggle in the cause of Islam (jihad) to ask the ruler to be justice”
Islam prevents taking law and order in the hands by neglecting the advise of the Muslim leaders and their folk!
On the authority of Tamim Al-Dari that the prophet said:
“Religion is sincerity”. We said: “To whom?” He said: “To Allah and His Book, and His messenger, and to the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk”.
Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “Follow the way of the largest group of Muslims! For, he who deviates from this group will be thrown into Hell!” [Sunnan Ibn Majah, Hadith # 3950]
Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam ) said: “Allah will never allow my Ummah to unite upon misguidance and incorrect beliefs. Allah’s mercy, blessings and protection are with the largest group of Muslims. And he who deviates from this largest group of Muslims will be thrown into Hell.” Sunan Al Tirmidhi Vol.2 Pg.39)
Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “He who deviates from the largest group of Muslims, even as much as a hand span, has himself cut off his connection with Islam”. Abu Dawud)
The Greater Majority Muslims are Peaceful and Peace loving people.
So Islam is free from Terrorism and Terrorists!.
Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam) had predicted about the coming of terrorists near the end of times!
Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said regarding a man who once accused him of injustice, “From among the offspring of this man there will rise a people who will read the Quran but it will not go beyond their throats (meaning it will not enter their hearts). They will kill Muslims and spare Idol-worshippers. They will deviate from Islam (as fast and clean) as an arrow pierces the game. If I live to witness their appearance, I will kill them as the people of ‘Aad (whom Allah utterly destroyed and annihilated because of their disbelief) were killed.” [Al-Bukhari & Muslim].
He further said, “Just before the end of time, young, idiotic people will rise. They will say words similar to (the good words) of the best people. They will recite the Quran, but it will not go beyond their throats. They will deviate from the religion as fast as an arrow pierces the game. If you meet them, kill them, for killing them will bring about a reward from Allah on the Day of Resurrection for whoever kills them.” [Al-Bukhari & Muslim].
So do not get fooled by this Kharij (rebellious) radical-terrorist sects of 21st Century who has nothing to do with the religion of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be up on him)
We can see today that all terrorist sects have emerged and spread in Muslim lands, not in the lands of disbelievers or polytheists!
So don’t get fooled!. be with Hanafi,Shafi,Maliki and hanbali scholars and leaders of this time!.
I suggest to be the followers of Hanafi and Shafi scholars and Shaykhs of this time,to be with those who are ahlul bayt (the family of Prophet) from this classical sunni creeds.
To be with Awliya Allah and Shaykhs of Tasawwuf who are the followers of the Imams of Salaf (Imam Abu Hanifa, Imam Malik, Imam Shafi, Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal)
Leave all those groups and sects which emerged in the time of fitnah (corruptions), which is the 17th,18th, 19th and 20th and 21st centuries of colonialism, and period of confusions(destruction of Caliphate in 1920s)!!!!
