A Rejection of Injustice and Barbarity

A Rejection of Injustice and Barbarity

We reject without reservations the claims of the group known as ISIS or IS or Daish to be acting for Muslims or for Islam when they engage in beheading, cruxifixion and in forced, so-called "conversions".

The actions of ISIS have been condemned by Islamic scholars of all schools and still they threaten to carry out further beheadings and killings. They seem deaf to all appeals to act justly. All of us who are Muslims pray every day for mercy and forgiveness. However others may see us we are taught that the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) was sent as a "Rahmatillil Aalameen" - a mercy to all the worlds. Those same prayers demand all of us that we strive always to show mercy to others. In this crucial test ISIS has turned its back on the fundamental teaching of Islam. As a community we reject them.
