Refuting ISIS - Shaykh Muhammad Al-Yaqoubi (Read this book)


In the name of Allah entirely and truly merciful

Just listen to this 7 minute video to understand the author of this book and his love to Islam and way of preaching (May Allah keep him safe)

Regarding the book

The Islamic State in Syria and Iraq (ISIS) constitutes the most serious threat Islam has ever faced. To justify its horrible crimes and appeal to Muslims around the world, ISIS has based its ideology on a superficial and literalist approach to the Sacred Texts of Islam - the Holy Qur’an and the Prophetic Tradition. ISIS manipulates religion to brainwash angry young Muslims, who have little knowledge of Islamic theology and jurisprudence. Therefore, the Muslim scholars are obliged to respond with a counter-narrative that elucidates the reality of Islam and its commitment to tolerance. There exists a plethora of proofs that demonstrates ISIS’ actions do not represent Sunni Islam and its claims are based on clear fallacies. The author, Shaykh Muhammad Al-Yaqoubi, a renowned scholar and one of the 500 most influential Muslims in the world today, presents in this invaluable book a thorough refutation of ISIS’ beliefs and crimes. Providing authentic quotes that destroy the allegations of ISIS, Shaykh Al-Yaqoubi reaches the conclusion that this group does not represent Islam, its declaration of a caliphate is invalid, and fighting it is an obligation upon Muslims.

The Shaykh in his books says to share his work with the world, so i am leaving the free e-book link.

Read the book and read other side of the story and come into your own conclusion, i am not here to give conclusion but ‘‘reading’’ will never hurt anyone.

Shaykh Yaqoubi’s critical interrogation of ISIS literature, his political activism and intimate knowledge of the conditions in the Levant coupled with his deep understanding of the Islamic scholarly tradition should leave no doubts in the minds of Muslims that the way of ISIS is not the way of Islam.

Just wanted to share yet another example of Muslim scholars speaking out against ISIS.

Reading Islam can harm the faith of many people. The Church, in her wisdom, for hundreds of years maintained an Index of forbidden books. Time spent reading Islam is time not spent edifying oneself with Sacred Scripture, Papal encyclicals, the Lives of the Saints.

Pope Saint John Paul the Great read Marx and Engels, but he knew very well what he was doing, and it shows in his work, and the results thereof. Communism crumbled in the Soviet Union due to his tireless efforts. One should follow his example and read Islam only to bring a swift and decisive end to Islam.

Thank you. I hope that this book will be read by other Islamic scholars and other Muslims.

Me and you both.
