Who are the Extremist Wahhabis and ISIS ?

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيم

Praise be to God the Creator of the world, the One Who exists without beginning, without end, without location, without a "how" and Who does not depend on time. Nothing resembles Him in anyway and He hears and sees everything without organs. Whatever you imagine, God is different from that. May the elevation in degree and preservation of his community of what he fears for it, be granted to our master Muḥammad Al-'Amin, the Honest One, who called for following Islam, the religion of truth, the religion of all the Prophets: of the first, Adam, to the last Muḥammad.

ISIS is a branch of the Wahhabi cult. Wahhabis are a sect that emerged 250 years ago that follows a deviant man who emerged from a place called Najd, the place where the Prophet said

« منها يطلع قرن الشّيطان »

which means: « the tribulations and sedition will occur from there » . They oppose the majority of Muslims and declare whomever opposes them as blasphemers and thus promote chaos and killing amongst the nations.

The mufti of Makkah AHmad bin Zaini dahlan already authored a book called "The Fitnah of Wahhabis" and he exposed some of what he saw and wittnessed from the wahhabi extreme and terrorist acts and crimes besides their radical beliefs and misguidance in aqeedah. [Read the book "The Fitnah of Wahhabis"]

Islam is a moderate faith that all Prophets followed. Many people throughout the eras try to pervert the religion. Unfortunately, even in Islam we have extremists who distort the real meaning of Islam, among those are the Wahhabis. Wahhabis (falsely Salafis) are a small misguided radical sect that opposes the Muslim majority. They deem Muslims who oppose them as blasphemers and permit bombing, terrorizing and killing them by the name of Islam. We are obligated to warn people from their evil misguidance. Islam is against radical ideologies and disowns extremist groups (like Wahhabis, Hizb al-ikhwan and hizb at-Tahrir extremists) that misuse the name of Islam for misleading purposes and hidden agendas. And for that the schools of these cults ended up producing uncontrolled extremists like "Bin Laden", "Zarqawi" and "Zawahiri" whom are the reason behind all the terrorist attacks in countries like Algeria, Morrocco, Egypt, Syria and Lebanon. And that's the outcome of following the ideologies of Ibn Taymiah, Ibn Abdul-Wahhab and Sayid Qutub that were misguided opinionated extremists opposing Islam.

As part of our Islamic obligation in warning from the evil, we intend in this research to expose some of the deviated teachings of these people with full references to stand as a warning to everyone, especially the Muslim communities and families so that they too warn their children from indulging with such extremist groups as the Wahhabis. In Qur'ân Allâh said in Surat Al `Imran, Ayah 11:

« كُنتُمْ خَيْرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخْرِجَتْ لِلنَّاسِ تَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَتَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَتُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللّهِ »

( kuntum khayra 'ummatin 'ukhrijat li n-nâs ta'murûna bi l-ma`rûf wa tanhawna `ani l-munkari wa tu'minûna bi l-Lâh )

which means: « You are the best of the nations that were brought to the people commanding the lawful and forbidding the unlawful. » And Prophet Muḥammad Salla lLâhu `alayhi wa sallam said what means: « If you see my nation fearful of telling he who is unjust, 'You are unjust'--then know the support of Allâh is withdrawn from them. »

We ask Allâh to guide us to what is acceptable, enable us to be always steadfast on the path of the Prophet, and to be always protectors and defenders of the creed of Ahlus-Sunnah that the Prophet brought to the people. And Allâh knows best.
