What we know.
Islamic State of Iraq and Syria / Levant. The name describes it all, its an Islamic State that is, the laws it follows and implements are in tune with the teachings of Quran and the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وصحبه وسلم. Its leader Abu Bakr Baghdadi has announced himself to be a Caliph / Khalifa, that is spiritual and political leader of Muslims worldwide.
ISIS/ISIL carries out mass killings of its opposition whether they be Muslims or non-Muslims, the beheadings of the hostages and captives at will. And all sorts of inhuman activities. They not only carry it out, they also publicise it on the media, electronic, print and social. They claim to be fighting for the cause of Allah and Islam and seek to establish Islamic rule. Their such image is luring the young Muslims to have support and sympathy for them. Their macho and merciless image as Fighters for the cause of Allah, the shortcut to Jannah / Heaven is what attracts the immature blood.
What we do not know.
The group claims to be a Caliphate / Khilafat for the Muslims globally then why the name as State of Iraq and Syria or Levant? Why not just an ‘Islamic State’?
Does it really represents Islam?
Does it follow the teachings of Quran and Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad?
What are the opinions of the renowned Islamic / Muslim leaders and scholars vis a vis ISIS/ISIL?
ISIS / ISIL’s acts are in fact contradictory to Islam’s teachings of Mercy and Universal Peace. It does great disservice to Islam and Muslims while serving the Israeli and Western interest.
Here is a very brief analysis, honourable reader is encouraged to verify the information which is already available in the public domain.
Firstly, It is a well known and established fact that Islam commands the exercise of utmost leniency and discipline from a Caliphate / Khilafah in administration. A regime which decapitates the hostages for military strikes against it, has most certainly violated the basic law of justice, besides committing an heinous atrocity. This is not what Prophet Muhammad taught and this is not what Islam or any just system can profess.
Secondly, a person just cannot spring up with a band of local followers and claim to be a Khalifah / Caliph, that is, leader of Muslims globally. Khalifah is chosen by a consensus of the Council / Shura which is to be comprised of the Muslims leaders and scholars representing the people across geographic and demographics. Abu Bakr Baghdadi certainly jumped the guns, violated the protocols.
What do the Islamic / Muslim Clerics and Scholars say about ISIS/ISIL ?
The International Union of Muslim Scholars, led by influential Sunni cleric Dr Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, released a statement on Friday concerning the recent declaration of a “caliphate” by the Islamic State in Iraq and Levant (ISIS). The union said that the caliphate declaration is “null and void” and “lacks any realistic or legitimate standards.” It warned of serious consequences of the declaration on both Sunni Muslims in Iraq and the revolution in Syria.

“Terrorism is contrary to the purposes of the great religion of Islam, which came as a mercy to the world … and to ensure the system of worldly coexistence,” said the 21-strong council of senior scholars, according to the Saudi Press Agency. “Terrorism has nothing to do with Islam, which is innocent of this deviant ideology … [terrorism] is nothing more than corruption and criminality rejected by Islamic sharia law and common sense.”

This should be clear to any reader that ISIS certainly is created for some grand plan, and is being aided and groomed very carefully.
ISIS / ISIL is definitely not Islamic in any way, rather its UnIslamic and anti-Islamic. Created to serve Israeli and American interests. It is an appeal to the youth to look into the matter and not get carried away by false propaganda of Khilafat / Caliphate or Islamic Rule.
