    Thousands of foreigners answered ISIS’s call to fight in Syria and Iraq, traveling from countries around the world...including the United States. VICE News follows the journey of an American father searching for his missing children in the hands of ISIS. The search reveals that while the physical Islamic State caliphate is gone, the ideology that attracted so many still lives on.

Horrible story. I'm not too keen on the father's very public and inappropriate displays of 'piety'. A great teacher once said "Do not pray for display as the hypocrites do. They have their reward".

The fact that they are not keeping the kids away from the adults are frustrating. Because if the mothers keep their children and following isis the kids will just become future isis members. And become suicide bombers or get killed in combat.

@Precy Dingayan "“A person is either your brother in faith, or your equal in humanity” (Imam Ali)." Do not abuse those whom they worship besides Allah” (6:108). If a person claims to be Muslim, he is not allowed to insult or disrespect another religion. This is forbidden according to the Quran. We r taught to not to even insult a religion and ur talking bout Muslims killing other ppl w different religion. It's good tht u should study and see what the actual truth is. It's nothing new for ppl to target Islam everytime. Plus, the so called Muslims you hv in ur mind don't belong to us. They r extremists who go against the teachings of Islam. If you know what islam really teaches then u wouldn't be putting stuff out of context and target it.

@ibegurpardon why you kill people if their belief is different from u why

Vor 14 Tage
ibegurpardon
ibegurpardon

@Precy Dingayan first of all it would be really appreciated if you spell the word right; it's "Qur'an" not "Quaran" second of all, a lot of people have this issue of quoting Qur'anic verses without understanding it. Like, I can take a piece of verse from another religious book, a verse that specifically talks about punishments and stuff and say "oh, your religion is Barbaric, evil!" Here, the verse 5 : 33 is talking about the punishments for the corrupters. People who spread mischief and evil around the place. Note that before this verse there comes verse 5 : 32 "Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land - it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one - it is as if he had saved mankind entirely." Oh you'd say, this isn't Barbaric at all, it comes right before the verse that talks about punishment. And it clearly, explicitly being addressed to the people who corrupt the land and destroy peace. Here, the verse 5 : 32 talks about how killing a single person is the slaying of entire humanity and right after that it's talkin about the people who commit heinous crimes, if you read the verse carefully you will notice that it puts several clauses for this punishment. It says “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land“. This is the first clause describing the gravity of the offense. This is punishment for “WAGING WAR“ against God and the Prophet of God and spreading evil and destruction. This is a crime amounting to declaration of War against the Creator which invariably also means a rebellion against all the laws which the creator has revealed for the harmony of the created. Speaking on a National context on a lesser degree this is equivalent to you waging war against your country. In modern terminology this would be considered as “high treason” or “terrorism” depending on the kind of media you have. Hence the Quranic verse prescribes punishment for such a severe offense of “terrorism” and hence the severity. The nature of the scope of crime mentioned in the verse is not limited to a few specific named crimes but instead a wide range of crimes are inferred. The verse then mentions a set of punishments varying from a high to low severity proving again this point. Hence it is ignorant (or mischievous) to highlight only the severe punishments in a tone giving a false impression that “look this is the punishment for ALL crimes according to the Quran”. See, I know and understand where you're coming from. You should not believe what people or haters of Islam tell you. They will cherry pick verses put of context like that and then target and label Islam w bad wrong terminologies. I will try my best to clarify your doubts to the best of my knowledge. But if you wanna know the truth you should talk to practicing Muslims, take a look in their daily lives. If they're a threat near that there r 1.8 billion Muslims in the world if our belief propagated hate, violence then the whole world would be in a bad condition.

It's nothing with Allah they r enemies of Islam. They made their own religion and twisted out the Islamic laws in their sadistic, evil minds. Allah Akbar means God is Great and they're killing ppl under that word, how stupid. Bear tht in mind these ppl don't belong to Islam. Judge Islam by what it teaches not by wht certain ppl do. First off there's no reason u hv to put these "terrorists" w Islam. They don't belong to us.

Anas ibn Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “There will be division and sectarianism in my nation, and a people will come with beautiful words and evil deeds. They will recite the Quran, but it will not pass beyond their throats. They will leave the religion as an arrow leaves its target, and they will not return to it as the arrow does not return to its bow. They are the worst of the creation. Blessed are those who fight them and are killed by them. They call to the Book of Allah, but they have nothing to do with it. Whoever fights them is better to Allah than them.”
